"I have worked with Kimi a few times now and I can truly say I've never had a better experience with a photographer. She is so easy to work with and listens to exactly what you want while still putting her beautiful artistic touch on every detail. She is experienced, knowledgeable and has a lot of ideas for everything from posing to locations. I always felt completely comfortable with her while I was in front of the camera and while discussing details of the shoots we have done together. She is a lot of fun and I would recommend anyone to Kimi because I know they will have a great experience and absolutely love the way their photos come out."

"Not only is Kimi a creative visionary herself, but she also has the unique ability to interpret a client's vision and bring it to life through her photographs. Her work is art that evokes emotion and tells a story--a true gift to anyone that is privileged to work with her. As a makeup artist, it's a dream to work with someone as talented as Kimi."
"I've never really been a fan of having my photo taken. Working with Kimi completely changed my perspective. She made me feel extremely comfortable, and confident. She's extremely professional, and also very fun to work with. Photography is her medium, and she is a true artist. Her photos are inspiring, and capture moments so beautifully. And I feel so lucky to have had her capture such beautiful moments in my life (engagement & wedding.) I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who appreciates a keen eye, and an artful soul."

When I received the images I was even more blown away by her mastery of lighting and the emotions that her photos evoke. I'm already looking forward to working with her again."
