Don’t take my word for it
Reviews from past wedding clients
“*insert clapping emojis* HIRE.THIS.LADY. Hands down the BEST decision I made for our wedding. Not only is super talented behind the camera, but she has this calming energy that makes you feel so comfortable in front of it! My husband can be super awkward in front of the camera, and she knew exactly how to direct him to make him look like Tom Hardy in GQ. All joking aside, my whole wedding was falling apart (hire a good TRUSTING coordinator ladies) and Kali was right there to save the day. She jumped right in with my mom when my day was falling apart and made sure every detail was perfect for my big day. She captured every moment I asked for and more. She even guided me in making decisions on different types of photos. She also works quick (which i instructed her to, cause like reception party, right?!) and the photos look like she had us in the forest for HOURS. I’m really particular about the kind of photos I like. I wanted very in the moment and very few posed photos. She NAILED IT. She captured the intimate moments of me with my dad and even more perfect moments between my husband and I. Everyone at my wedding LOVED her. Like i said at the beginning: HIRE THIS LADY!”
“There aren’t enough words to say how amazing Kali is at what she does! She is incredibly fun, passionate, professional, and creative. She is an AWESOME photographer and will make you forget that you’re in front of the camera (while simultaneously making you look like a model). She made my husband and I feel so comfortable while working with her – it felt like hanging out with a friend the whole time! I had been following Kali long before we got engaged and the second we did, I reached out to her. Thankfully, she was available (she books up fast, y’all!) for both our engagement and wedding photos. Not only is Kali a wonderful person but her photos are absolutely beautiful. I truly could not have asked for or anyone better to work with us! I would highly and SERIOUSLY recommend Kali M Photos to everyone (and have been since our engagement shoot)! She is the best of the best!” - Allie
“Kali is amazing! My husband and I couldn't be happier with our wedding photos. We seriously can't stop looking at our photos and every time, we get giddy and cry (or I cry actually!). Kali is so good at capturing the most precious candid moments and showcasing in her photos the raw emotion taking place in those moments. Additionally, she is personable yet professional and just a total sweetheart. Hiring her was the best investment we made in our wedding. Hire her! You won't regret it!”

“I DON’T NEED _______. CAN I EXCHANGE ANYTHING IN MY PACKAGE?”
GREAT QUESTION!! YOU’RE ONLY ALLOWED TO ADD ON TO YOUR PACKAGES, YOU CAN’T TAKE ANYTHING AWAY, OR EXCHANGE. IF YOU’D LIKE TO OPT OUT OF A CERTAIN PART OF YOUR PACKAGE, YOU’RE MORE THAN WELCOME TO DO SO, BUT NO MONEY WILL BE REFUNDED/DISCOUNTED TO YOU
“HOW SOON AFTER BOOKING DO YOU RECOMMEND DOING OUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION?”
FOR ME, THE SOONER THE BETTER!! YOU NEVER KNOW WITH WEATHER OR EVEN REAL LIFE STUFF LIKE GETTING SICK, OR CARS BREAKING DOWN, ECT. SOOOO, I SAY THE SECOND YOU BOOK, LETS TALK ENGAGEMENT SESSION AND MAKE SURE WE PICK A DATE ROUGHLY ONE-THREE MONTHS AFTER YOU BOOK YOUR WEDDING.
IF YOU PLAN ON SENDING YOUR ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS OUT WITH YOUR SAVE THE DATES, AIM TO GET YOUR ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS AROUND THE 6-8 MONTH MARK BEFORE YOUR WEDDING TO GIVE YOURSELF PLENTY OF TIME TO GET YOUR SAVE THE DATES OUT TO YOUR GUESTS!!
MORE ABOUT ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS CAN BE FOUND IN MY ENGAGEMENT PHOTO GUIDE HERE.
“WILL I BE ABLE TO DECIDE ON WHICH PHOTOS ARE EDITED/BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE RAW PHOTOS/VIDEOS?”
UNFORTUNATELY, NO. I DO NOT ALLOW CLIENTS TO ACCESS THE RAW FILES FROM THEIR WEDDING DAY, HOLD POSSESSION OF THEM, OR BUY THEM FROM ME. THIS IS MY WAY OF KEEPING MY WORK, MY WORK. IF I SOLD, OR GAVE RAW FILES TO CLIENTS, THEY CAN ESSENTIALLY EDIT THEM THEMSELVES, AND PUBLISH WITHOUT GIVING ME CREDIT. OR THEY EDIT THE PHOTOS, AND CREDIT ME, BUT IT LOOKS NOTHING LIKE MY WORK. THIS IS SIMPLY COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT AND IS ILLEGAL UNDER MY CONTRACTS WITH CLIENTS.
I DO NOT ALLOW CLIENTS TO CULL THROUGH THEIR IMAGES/VIDEOS AND PICK THEIR FAVORITES FOR ME TO EDIT. I DO NOT PROOF ANY IMAGES FOR CLIENTS. TO PUT IT SIMPLY, I WANT GETTING YOUR WEDDING PHOTOS TO BE LIKE CHRISTMAS MORNING FOR YOU. I CAN ALSO LOOK AT PHOTOS DIFFERENTLY THAN A NON-PHOTOGRAPHER, ALSO. I CAN PICK IMAGES BASED ON LIGHTING, ANGLE, FOCUS, ETC. SO YOU JUST GET TO SIT BACK, RELAX, AND WAIT FOR ME TO PERFECT YOUR COLLECTION!!!
Can you photoshop us to be skinnier / have clear skin?
I’m not a personal trainer and I don’t change your appearance. I want to focus on making you feel beautiful, rather than look unrealistic. So no, I don’t photoshop your body to appear different than they actually are. Yes, I clear up the skin and remove distractions. Yes, Ill photoshop a couple lightsabers in if you really want ( can't promise it will look good though haha).
