what our couples have to say about us

Steve+Lauren

“Joe+Kathrina were the absolute best couple! We actually met them in NYC before deciding on having them shoot our wedding, and instantly knew they were the right fit for us. Neither of us feel we are very photogenic, and they couldn’t have captured our natural happiness on our wedding weekend more perfectly. They even shot our pool party the day before which was such an extra special thing to do! Everyone at the wedding loved them, they fit in seamlessly, and the father of the bride raved about them for months and months after the wedding. They provided an amazing lay out for timing of how we would take photos with our large family. Taking photos out in the desert with just the four of us was such a highlight of our day truly. They are a breath of fresh air during a time when planning can be stressful. They reminded us to slow down and enjoy each other because they would capture the moments so beautifully. Can’t recommend them enough!!!”

“There are not enough words to describe the amazing work of this passionate and beautiful couple. They have the ability to relate to their clients on another level, allowing all the awkward feelings you think you have in front of the camera to completely disappear. Joe and Kathrina captured everything. Every single thing you could imagine wanting in your wedding photos, as well as those special, secret moments you never knew were captured and are now framed, hanging around the house. Their photos are something that you will never want to stop looking at – I know we don’t. These two are magical – both their photography, as well as their understanding and creative personalities putting up with all our craziness made our entire wedding experience something that we will never forget. THANK YOU!”

“Words cannot even describe how amazing Joe and Kathrina are! From our first initial meeting we were blown away with how sweet and dedicated they were to capturing every moment of our wedding. Not only is their photography style dark and moody but it captures the emotion and the moments from every part of our wedding day! They didn’t make us pose at all which was such a relief, but they made us laugh and we have recommended them to everyone else we know getting married! We are so grateful that our wedding photographers turned into friends and we now have permanent go to photographers for life!”

“My husband and I got in touch with Joe and Kathrina after they did the photography for a friend’s wedding. I’m not a huge fan of a most engagement/wedding photos because they often seem stiff and posed and our friend’s photos were not that way so I knew I had to meet their photographers. We knew right away that we wanted to work with them. They did our engagement shoot as well as our wedding and we couldn’t be happier with how the photos turned out. Joe and Kathrina are so genuine and authentic and they bring that out of you and your partner and make you feel so comfortable. They really captured us and there’s not one awkward photo. Our wedding coordinator said things like “your photographers are going to make you walk down the aisle again to get more photos” and I’m so glad that we didn’t hire those photographers. I look at our photos all the time and truly treasure them. I recommend Joe+Kathrina to anyone looking and would work with them again in a heartbeat! Thank you guys so so much!”

“Joe and Kathrina were absolutely amazing. Honestly, I truly believe they saved the day. We had put so much money and effort into planning this gorgeous wedding and of ALL days, Los Angeles decided to rain on OUR day. It never rains in September! I was mortified. If I could go back and change my attitude I would do it in a second, but when you’re in it you really don’t have much control over your emotions. Or at least I didn’t. Joe and Kathrina, from the second they arrived, calmed me down, made me laugh, and got those photos that when I look back make me completely forget about the rain. I had my ups and downs during the day but they stuck it out with me. They even drove us down Sunset after the reception to get some photos in our wedding attire at a local classic diner. We ate burgers and drank champagne, they captured our true selves…relaxed and a little tipsy. This lead to Joe capturing the moment I jumped into the pool in my wedding dress! I don’t know many photographers who go that extra mile to make sure you have everything you could hope for in photos. It brings us so much joy to look back and think of the next life event we can have them capture in the future!”

“I cannot express how much my husband and I love Joe+Kathrina. From the first day we met with them we just clicked and knew we had to have them photograph our wedding. It was so important to us to have quality, natural looking photos from our wedding day to look back on and they provided just that. They made us so comfortable during both our engagement shoot and on the wedding day. It felt like we were just hanging out with our friends and having a good time! The photos we got back were STUNNING and I never get tired of looking at them. They are the sweetest couple and make everyone feel like family.”

Eric+Allison

“Joe+Kathrina are so much fun, first of all. They really help awkward-in-front-of-the-camera folks (hello, that’s me and my husband) feel comfortable and at ease, and they’re just awesome people. But also, we were just blown away by how incredible our wedding photos turned out. They’re phenomenal and really captured the urban-cool vibe we were going for. We stumbled upon them on Instagram and it was far and away the happiest accident we had while wedding planning. Hiring them was a no-brainer and one of the best decisions we made.”

“The BEST photographers, ever. Not only is their work amazing, but they made the whole process that much more enjoyable. They had my husband and I laughing the whole time and that much more comfortable in front of the camera. They managed to take our awkward selves and make beautiful photos out of it. Joe and Kathrina are legit, like you’re going to want to hangout with them after. And the photos turned out magical.”
