LOVE LOVE LOVE Kate! She did our engagement and our Wedding this past weekend with second shooter Veronica Sparrow! They were both nothing less than amazing and would 12/10 recommend them to others! Kate is super kind, patient, and answers all my questions. She made me feel comfortable and always told me how stunning I was in the photos she was taking of me! She also did a boudoir shoot for me and made me feel so relaxed (I was super nervous). I had a great time with her as my photographer — maybe I can con her into doing my future babies someday!

Kate is one of the easiest photographers to work with. She works quick and made my husband feel super comfortable when he at first felt very uneasy about being photographed. Her results are nothing short of stunning. Kate captures the life, spark, and true connection between a couple. We used her for our engagement photos, as well as our wedding day, and we could not be happier with our choice. The highest recommendation. You will be thrilled with your photos ♡ More...

I had the great fortune of meeting Kate through one of my bosses at work shortly after getting engaged. Kate not only very quickly won our trust in her work, but also our hearts to her friendship! She was very knowledgeable and friendly during the entire process. She listened to what and who we are as a couple then showed our personalities through her pictures. She took our priorities seriously and captured moments that will live in our home and memories for years to come! Photography and photographers are a big investment because they are worth it! You don’t just pay someone to take nice pictures, you pay them to capture your self and the feelings of the moment. In my opinion you don’t just hire a photographer, you find a friend. Trust me when I say there is no better friend than Kate! Ps We have friends who hired friends to take pictures of their wedding because of the savings. But when their pictures finally made it back they quickly learned that you get what you pay for. More...

All you have to do is look at our wedding photos and you will see the quality work that she does. In addition, she was easy to reach, understood what we wanted and punctual. Doesn't get much better than Kate!! I knew my bride was going to be beautiful but Kate even managed to make me look good too!! So yeah. She's magical. More...

Kate was so wonderful all around! She was awesome with my girls (3.5 and 6 months), especially my older daughter who is very shy at first in these situations. She took time to capture the images we wanted, and was so quick to respond to all of my questions before, during and after our shoot. The pictures are beautiful, and she took so many! I couldn't have asked for a better experience. We will definitely be repeat customers. :) More...

Where do I begin on this review? There are so many great things I could say about Kate McStay Photography! FIrst and most importantly, Kate is so easy and comfortable to be around thus making each photography session relaxed and fun which is so important for capturing the important moments of life. Whether it be a screeching newborn or an unexpected addition to the session, Kate welcomes the challenge with her laid back attitude. In fact, Kate has made our sessions so easy and fun that I attempted to photograph my little family of three. Needless to say, my attempt did not result in the same photographs as Kate's and that experience made me value Kate's abilities even more! Behind Kate's easy going demeanor is a dedicated, hard working, excellent photographer who won't leave a session without making sure she captured shots that will be loved by all. I'll always cherish and be grateful for our maternity and newborn images and confidently recommend Kate McStay Photography to anyone looking for a laid back, professional photographer willing to go the extra mile for clients!

Kate took our family photos at a farm in Versailles in the Fall. I could not be more impressed. She was able to incorporate all of the beautiful scenery into each one with our family as the focus. She got my toddler daughter to show her personality in each one. I could not pick a favorite. Her expertise and attention to detail was shown in each photograph. I cannot wait until our next photo shoot. Thanks, Kate! More...

Used Kate McStay to photograph my wedding and did not regret it. She was very professional and thought of so many ways to arrange and set a picture that I would never have thought of. I feel like she really captured my husband and my style through the photos. More...

Kate has been photographing my family for years. From newborn photos, to birthdays, family pictures, and special events, she is our go to photographer. She is professional, fun, and super creative. Not to mention great at getting my young daughter to open up and relax during our sessions. The photos she captures are always amazing. Strongly recommend! More...

Kate did our maternity and newborn photo shoot. It was an amazing experience! She is very professional and talented. She knows all the beautiful locations around town and has a great eye for detail. Our baby boy slept through the whole shoot and she was able to work with it and make it an unforgettable experience for us! Strongly recommend. More...

Kate is a consummate professional. Excellent in communication before, during and after to help plan and execute the most special photographs you will ever take. She is sharp, has direction, and her attention to detail is impeccable. I have received more compliments on the quality of the photographs than from any other aspect of the wedding. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone seeking a high quality photographer with excellent client service skills. Thanks Kate for capturing our wedding exactly how I pictured it! More...
