Kay was amazing to work with! She recently took photos for a home that I'm about to put on the market. She was incredibly professional and kind. She got out to the property right away and got the photos back to us very quickly. They turned out amazing! I highly recommend her! -Cecily M.
Mother of the Groom
As the mother of the groom I knew there would be pictures of wedding poses, the cake and the wedding party. But I also wanted some fun action shots. Kay knew exactly what I wanted. She started by taking pictures of the setting - little things - which might not have been noticed but when I look at these pictures now, the memory comes flooding back and I enjoy this day all over again. She was able to get the groom and his best buddies goofing off. And also the bride nervous and excitedly getting dressed and ready. Many of these were posed but Kay was able to put everyone at ease and mingle with the crowd to get some fun pictures that show the emotions. With her camera and her talent, Kay tells the story of Rick and Rosie's special day through pictures that revive our memory every time we look at them, which is quite often. Kay also did the photography for my daughter's wedding several years back. The pictures were lovely and again, she was telling their story and that's why I knew she also had to do my son's wedding. She did the complete wedding book for my daughter but she also gave me an accordion type of book with wedding photos in it and my granddaughter LOVES to look through this book. -Carey D.
Cant say enough good things about our experience. We contacted Kay at the last minute and thank goodness she had an opening. Kay was so accommodating. We had 22 people and she organized the entire setting. Pictures turned out wonderful. Will definitely use her again and will refer her to friends. -Darlena B.
Kay did a wonderful job on my newborns photos. She was very patient with the baby and remained upbeat even when he wasn't cooperating. Kay was still able to knock out some great shots. Can't wait to work with her again!!
50th Wedding Anniversary
My husband and I celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary in July and as a gift from my family, kw Photo Designs was engaged to record this special event. Kay made sure that every element of our celebration was recorded from the venue to the food, to the decorations, and, especially our friends and family. We loved every picture that Kay took which made it very difficult to select only a few. I'm looking forward to making a book from the pictures we selected. Thanks, Kay! -Nancy N.
I can't say enough about Kay as a photographer and a person! If you're looking for a photographer that treats your wedding pictures like she would if they were her own, this is the vendor to hire! She took extra care right from the start. She prepared for the event by sitting down with us, asking us about our story, and having us fill out a questionnaire covering everything that I didn't even think of for my own wedding!! Then she actually went to the wedding location weeks in advance to map out the plan for the photos without even being asked. We received a timeline complete with the weather report for the day before the wedding. At the wedding she was on time, friendly and efficient. She was up against a delayed unorganized wedding party and she handled it with ease. Creating memories that my husband and I will cherish for the rest of our lives. Even our guests were commenting on how organized and creative she was with the pictures. I am so happy to have selected Kay!! The pictures are out of this world. I will be hiring her for my daughter's senior pictures too!! Thank you!! -Maricarroll T.
Corporate Head Shots
If you need to have your photos done, look no further! Kay did an AMAZING job for not only myself but my co-workers at Hays-Caldwell Women's Center. After noticing that some of our head shots were dated and not very flattering, I contacted Kay and she came out to meet us all day. Most of us were NOT looking forward to having our photos done since it can be somewhat awkward but Kay made everyone feel relaxed and comfortable! She took her time and helped each of us through the photo shoot. She was especially sweet to me and was so patient and understanding! Kay is professional and personable, I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for a professional photographer! -Melissa R.
Kay, you are so talented! I love the pictures of the bridesmaids, the groomsmen, Cody, me looking at the camera! They see so beautiful!! I especially love the pictures of me looking at and doing things with my parents, the bridesmaid and them not looking at the camera. Those show the love, joy and connections. Those brought tears to my eyes, because they are so real and remind me of the memories! Thank you so much for capturing these moments. I love the stories that you tell with the pictures. Thank you! -Laura S.
Kay did a fabulous job shooting a house I am listing in San Marcos. She was very professional, easy to work with and has an eye for detail. Thank you Kay for your help, I believe your pictures will help sell this house!!
Kay was great to work with! Wouldn't ask for anyone else. Great personality, creative idea, and was open to my ideas as well. She makes sure you feel comfortable which really eased the stress. Would recommend her to anyone looking to get professional photos done! Marlene C.
Kay was such a great photographer to work with. Even though I was sick she made the photo shoot so easy. I loved all the lighting she uses and she has a great eye for the perfect shot! Would love to use her again! The photos turned out great and I couldn't be happier! Once gain thanks a bunch!! Paige E.
SO happy I went with her for my senior pictures! They turned out absolutely perfect and working with her is such a fun experience. Her awesome lighting equipment gives pictures that something extra that you just can't get from a camera alone. Highly recommend. Jennifer H
Had a great experience with her. These were my first professional pictures, and Kay made me feel super comfortable. She had great ideas and was open to any suggestions from my side. Also, she has great equipment to capture ideas. Awesome photographer. I can only recommend her! Lara T.
Wow!! These are terrific of Paige and Lucy!! Your friend definitely has the gift of photography too, although Paige is pretty adorable!! Ann H.
Our family was very important to my Father. As you know, the book was a special gift given to my family to share in the memory of his life. Words can not express my appreciation for the beautiful book you did of my Father. The quietness in the room as the family looked thru the book on Christmas Eve brought peace to my heart. Dad may have left our lives but he will never leave our hearts...a book we will always have in his memory. -Martha E.
Kay! Thank you so much for putting that book together. It truly is the best gift I've ever received. You have a gift! I really appreciate you helping my Mom out. Thank ou so very much again. It was perfect and beautiful! -Jennifer E.

Stunning Wedding Book
Thank you so much for our book! It is absolutely stunning, and everyone who sees it is amazed at how wonderful it is. We love having it to show off since it is much more personal than a usual photographer's album. -Jean & Travis G.

Family Heirlooms - Baby Books
Kay has done a fantastic job capturing and reserving memories for all 4 of my children! Their first year baby books are something that I treasure and they do as well! Now that they are old enough to appreciate them, we often go back and read the stories and look at the pictures. The way she puts the images together really tells a story throughout the book, with every one of them being unique. Thanks you so much for your help in helping to capture their earliest "firsts" that we will have forever! -Melody C.
