Waveny House Wedding

We are very pleased with Katie Slater.  Prior to our wedding, Katie asked us to complete a questionnaire and we had the opportunity to discuss our preferences.  She really took the time to make sure all the details that were important to us would be captured.  Katie possesses a friendly and kind demeanor, and throughout our wedding day she was very professional and pleasant to work with.  Most of all, we are extremely happy with our photos.  We particularly like her blending of different photographic styles and use of sunlight and nature to depict the beauty of the day.  She took some artistic poses to capture the essence of our personalities, as well as action shots and traditional vintage style photos.  She captured every special moment with an artful flair.  We would highly recommend Katie Slater to any bride and groom and look forward to working with her in the future!

Harkness Park Eolia Mansion Wedding  

Every time I look at my photos I'm so happy I chose Katie Slater Photography for our wedding.  I initially chose her based on her photography style.  I wanted to capture those candid smiles, romantic looks and heartwarming moments that I found in her portfolio, and she didn't disappoint!  She was great to work with from the initial contact through the wedding and even long after.  Katie and her team are so professional and knowledgeable that they were able to not only understand my vision but also execute it flawlessly.  She stayed so calm and attentive during my wedding day that she seemed like another friend there with us.  I've lost track of the amount of compliments we've received on our wedding photos and we owe it all to her, I can't recommend her enough!

We chose Katie as our photographer for our wedding in Thompson and we couldn't have made a better choice. The photographer was one of the most important things to us as we were planning our wedding. After doing hours of research, I was drawn to Katie's style of photography and knew that was what I wanted for my wedding. She is amazing to work with and is always very responsive and accommodating. Our engagement session was great and our wedding photos are breathtaking. Katie and her shooters were able to capture every moment from our wedding and they did so in a completely unobtrusive way. We didn't feel like we spent an endless amount of time on the group shots like we anticipated and each picture really captures the emotion of the evening. Katie is extremely talented in what she does and everyone that has seen our photos is amazed by her work. We can't stop looking at the pictures because each time we look we notice something different that we missed before! If I could hang every picture in our house, I would!  We will treasure these photos for years to come.

West Hartford Pond House Wedding  

Katie is amazing. She by far was the best vendor at our wedding and worth every penny. We felt so comfortable from the first time we met Katie that we stopped looking for a photographer and booked her on the spot. Even though we booked her a year and a half before our wedding, she checked in throughout the entire engagement. She makes planning process as simple as it could possibly be. The day of the wedding, you couldn't tell she was there and she captured more than we expected. All of our friends and family complimented our photos. The best thing about Katie is how amazing she is to work with and how professional she is. Neither my husband or I have ever liked having our pictures taken but once we started working with Katie that all changed, we had so much fun with her and love our pictures.

Block Island Wedding

Working with Katie was a dream. After paging through much of her previous work, I knew I loved her eye and I could let her do her thing, without unnecessary steering or direction (and I am generally annoyingly specific when it comes to these things). Having said that, Katie was very up front about asking for details - via phone or through her truly comprehensive questionnaire for the day of the wedding. She was breezy and wonderful to deal with, but she was on it. In my experience, the marriage of those two qualities is more rare than you might think, particularly in artists (I speak as a disorganized one, myself!).

I will say, I did have one moment of nervousness when Katie was so extraordinarily efficient at taking our bridal party and family photos that we were done in maybe a quarter of the time I had anticipated. But, of course, when the photos came in we had exactly what we needed and more, all in that amazing eye of hers. She gets it done. And she is also a fabulous hang, a total rockstar to be with. I'm already planning my next shoot as soon as I can come up with an excuse for one!

Our experience with Katie was exceptional from the start.  We signed up with Katie for engagement and (out of state) wedding photography.  While we were in NJ, Katie suggested Skype for our meeting needs and we were so glad she did.  She answered all of our questions and explained the entire process.  We really appreciated her prompt responses and flexibility.  She made us feel at ease during our engagement photo session.  She was so nice about hiking up and down Sleeping Giant State Park.  Afterwards, she provided us with beautiful photos.  We were very impressed.  Our engagement photos confirmed her amazing talent, creativity and professionalism. The entire engagement shoot was great practice for the wedding day.

On our wedding day, Katie hit the ground running! She was punctual, helpful, detailed oriented and very pleasant.  She captured the entire day from beginning to end.  She made sure our pre-selected details and special moments were captured.  Her interpersonal skills did not go unnoticed.  She was also mindful of special circumstances.  The equipment was never intrusive.  We were so happy to have her be a part of our day.
Above all, Katie is truly passionate about her work.  We just fell in love with her use of lighting and her ability to "capture the moment".  We are so happy we chose Katie for our photography needs.  We believe Katie will provide more than beautiful photos.  Because of our overall experience, we highly recommend Katie and look forward to contacting her in the future for family photos. ~ Luke and Gia

Harkness Park Wedding

Choosing Katie for our wedding was one of the first decisions that we made - and it was definitely the best! She made us feel so comfortable and at ease during our engagement shoot and was extremely easy to work with and flexible when it our planning really kicked into gear. The weather on our wedding day was a bit uncooperative in the morning and Katie was a total pro - she was calm and cool when plans for our pre-ceremony photos changed at the last minute and made quick suggestions about what to do so that it all worked out!
And the pictures! She has an amazing eye and captured not only the details but the feel of our day perfectly. And we never saw her! Both she and her second shooter were subtle and discreet and never interrupted a moment - but somehow they captured everything, and we're so grateful to have it all on film! We absolutely love every image from our day and we just adore Katie! I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a beautiful, joyful recap of their wedding. She's the best! ~ Beth and Jeff (See Style Me Pretty for more: Beth + Jeff on Style Me Pretty!

"When it came to the entire wedding planning process, choosing Katie as our photographer was the best decision we made. Katie had a way of making the entire photography process (before, the day of and after) absolutely effortless and stress free. On the day of you wouldn't have even known that her and her team were at the wedding. They stayed out of our guests way and were beyond friendly and professional, however managed to take a ton of photos throughout the entire day and night. When we received the photographs, they truly surpassed any expectations we could have had. They are images that we will cherish for the rest of our lives and will bring us back to that day, time and time again." Nicole + Joe
