KATHERINE ILONA PHOTOGRAPHY

Kind Words

Katie is AMAZING! I'm so thankful I found her! She made us feel so comfortable. Katie's work is so beautiful and full of passion. She is SO talented! I look at her work and I see more than just a photo. I can feel the emotions and the love between us. I said from the beginning that I didn't want to feel obligated to take engagement pictures that felt posed and awkward. These pictures speak to me! I literally cannot wait to hang them on my walls! Thank you SO much! I can't wait for you to capture more of our life...oh, and thank you for braving the cold and wind-- sure made for some amazing photos!!!"

Katie is incredible! I was truly in awe of the photos that she was able to capture from our wedding day. Within 12 hours of the wedding, she hadn't slept so that she could send me some sneak peak photos of our day. I must have looked through those same five photos 20 times during my flight the next day. I am still amazed how she truly captured our moment in those photos; she has so much talent and vision for the photographs. The energy that she brings and the effort that she puts into making your day unforgettable is unlike everyone I've ever met. From bustling up my dress twice in the middle of the reception to giving me her sweater between photos in the snow to warm up, she truly is so much more than a photographer. She helped make our wedding day so special, and I know that the photos that she captured will be ones that we cherish for many years to come.

When I contacted Katie regarding a couples session, I had a vision of what I wanted & to say she delivered is an understatement. Her creativity shows in every photograph. A few weeks after the couples session, we were lucky enough to have Katie shoot our vow ceremony. Her work amazes me. She incorporates the beauty of the surroundings & captures breathtaking photographs.

From the very beginning stages of our wedding planning, it was evident that she had a passion for photography and capturing big moments in the lives of others. She was there every step of the way in the process, and was more than flexible to make sure she got everything just right. The day of the wedding, she took time to capture moments I had specifically requested, and her work is nothing short of intimate, personal, and full of love. I am in awe of my wedding photos, and know I have a friend to reach out to for photography needs anytime!!

Katie is absolutely amazing. I feel so lucky to have found her. She captured everything soooo beautifully. I couldn’t have dreamed of a better photography for my low-key, ((slightly)) adventurous wedding and engagement sessions! She did so much for me that day— coordinating my first look with my soon to be husband, helping me put on my faux eyelashes 😂, talking with me and making me feel special (and much more!). And also— Katie, I hope your wedding day is just as special as you are! 💕 thank you so much!

Katie is wonderful to work with! She is truly an artist; each photo was unique and beautifully composed, all while portraying our personality as a couple. Both of the times that we have worked with her she made us feel so comfortable and relaxed, which was obvious in the pictures! In addition, she had a fast turn around time and provided us with so many photos to choose from!

Katie was a dream come true. I not only know her as a photographer but she’s one of my closet friends. She was incredible— from taking our engagement photos in the fall, to suggesting taking some shots outside at Indian Springs Golf Course in NJ at our rehearsal since our wedding the next day was calling for flash flooding. I will forever treasure her creativity and amazing talent. She also managed to delegate my husband’s entire family (30+ people) and my family to be on time for family photos. I will never forget her professionalism and organization of the family chaos! Despite the rain, we were adventous and took wedding day pictures on the golf course and they are my favorite photos. I ditched my heals for soggy mud but you would never know that from the photos. The raindrops looked like diamonds and the world just seemed to stand still when you look at them. I highly recommend Katie to photograph your event!

Katie took photos for my wedding and we could not be happier. What I love about Katie's photography is her ability to capture the personality of a person and the emotion of a moment. Her work is so creative and inquisitive, looking at the world very differently than most. Katie always captures the perfect moment without being intrusive. I know posing for photos can be very uncomfortable, but with her it's a fun and relaxing experience! Highly recommend!
