  • Excellent Photographer! Loved working with Kendra!

    Excellent Photographer!!! Loved working with Kendra! She communicated with us throughout the whole process and her images are stunning! On the day of our wedding, she had such a calm presence and made me and my husband feel comfortable and at ease. The only thing I would change, is that I should have booked her for longer. We had a small wedding party and short ceremony so I didn’t think I would need a photographer for more than 6hrs, but I wish I would have booked her to come earlier and capture more of the pre-wedding setup and family time. But her photos are beautiful, both the posed and the candid shots.

    I highly recommend Kendra Smith for wedding photography! From the very beginning she was so helpful with the vision we had. She went above and beyond on our wedding day. I would say she made our wedding day go more smooth. Not only is she amazing at what she does, she's also down to earth and just a joy to be around. So many people complimented on how wonderful she was. There were some unexpected issues that popped up and even though she didn't have to she stepped in and helped contain the situation. Our wedding photos blew us away, everything we wanted and more! She captured our wedding and reception perfectly. Truly brought our vision to life! She even helped us with resizing a photo for our photobooth. Thank you Kendra! We are so grateful and will cherish these photos forever!

    Kendra was amazing to work with! From the beginning, we knew she was the perfect photographer to capture our special day. She was very thorough with asking questions to make sure she understood our vision. She offered fantastic inspo suggestions that we never would have thought of. Working with her had us very relieved knowing that our photography was in good hands and one less thing we needed to stress about. The day of the wedding, she captured all of our special moments exactly how we envisioned. She has a lot of attention to detail, which was very evident when looking through our pictures. They turned out absolutely perfect. I could not have asked for a better photographer!

    Kendra was a life saver the day of the wedding and she was running the show all by herself! Not only did she manage to keep everyone on task and on the time line but she captured beautiful shots of the whole day. I would have been lost without her direction that day and she had fun with it! She made friends with not only the bridal party but also our guests. I would highly recommend having her be a part of your special day, she will keep everyone calm and remind you to have fun!
