IMG_7558Let me start this off by saying the photographer was one of the most important elements of our wedding to me. I took months to research photographers – meeting each one and grilling them with questions. As soon as I met Rebecca I was at complete ease because I knew I was in the hands of a professional. From start to finish, Rebecca was absolutely wonderful to work with.  I do not live in Kansas City and she scouted out every area in KC to find the best locations. She also had excellent suggestions on places I didn’t think of. She and I exchanged well over 50 emails in the months leading up to the wedding and Rebecca was sure to always get back to me immediately. On the day of the wedding, she devoted over 12 hours to my husband and I – capturing every moment of our day. She was extremely ununobtrusivend just let the day happen and captured the true emotion. Before the wedding day she went over in extreme detail how we would like the formal photos to go with wedding party and family – on the day of the wedding she was so organized that the formal pictures went so fast, smooth, and everyone had a genuine good time. On the day of, Rebecca organized what I consider now to be the most intimate moment of our wedding day – The First Look. Rebecca took such care to ensure the moment went perfect for us. My heart was beating out of my chest when she told me to open my eyes to see my groom for the first time. She captured the entire moment and I will always cherish those pictures. As most brides and grooms are, we were a little frazzled at times on the wedding day and Rebecca had such an amazing way of calming both of us. She helped us to relax during the picture taking sessions and truly aided us in enjoying our day. Rebecca took my husband, our wedding party, and I to the most unique spots in Kansas City and captured the true spirit of our day. She had everyone in our wedding party laughing and having a genuinely good time. I even heard two of the groomsmen commenting that wedding party pictures are usually never this fun. Rebecca is the real deal – talented, professional, creative, attentive, upbeat, and always eager to go that extra mile to ensure your wedding day and pictures are nothing but the best.

021_1743Rebecca has a great way of catching the moments as they happen. I’d seen her work in the past and knew we had to have to her shoot our wedding and engagement photos. She’s easy to work with and does amazing work. She’s always willing to work the client on whatever they want but seems to always find a way to capture the moments that are sometime forgotten. I’ll be recommending her to all of my family and friends and be using her for any future events. The memories she captures on film is truly worth the price we paid for her services…I believe we got the better end of the deal!

Rebecca was the most professional, caring, personable photographer we met with in all of our interviews. Her first impressions remained constant all throughout our planning. Her packages are very diverse, high quality, and reasonable. Her skills are unmatched. We felt she gave us consistent quality in photos and friendliness. We never felt rushed or awkward or hesitant in making requests. Even after the event, she has been more than generous in her helpfulness. She was a joy to work with.

The wedding I was in involved a very large wedding party and both the bride and groom had very large immediate and extended families. To compound the situation, the church where the wedding was held only allowed a half an hour for photography. Despite these challenges Rebecca was able to quickly and efficiently capture all of the formal photographs that the bride and groom had requested. She had the rare ability to be commanding and assertive while maintaining a pleasant demeanor. I have no doubt that whatever challenges arise during a wedding, Rebecca can handle them in stride. Very impressive!

By far and away she was the BEST thing I found on the entire Knot.com! Catch Light Photography far exceeded my HIGH expectations!!!! Her prices are very reasonable, and considering the product and service that you get they’re a steal! On such a chaotic day, she kept things moving smoothly. There was never a sense of rushing around to get pictures done, the timeline we worked up together went flawlessly. If there were any issues on timing, Rebecca handled them quickly and efficiently, to where I was none the wiser. She captured every special moment I could have imagined and more. Our photos are perfect, exactly what we wanted!!! Throughout the entire process, she stayed in contact with us, keeping us up to date on steps that needed to be completed, but was never pressuring. She was more like a photographer and wedding planner rolled into one. While maintaining a professional working relationship, if felt more as though working with a friend. She’s genuinely involved in taking the photographs that capture the vision you have of your special day. She was able to understand exactly what we were looking for even though I couldn’t always articulate it. Rebecca is a gem, and you should certainly contact her about your special day. You will not be disappointed!

026_3139bwRebecca was an angel in disguise. My husband and I were so blessed to have her as our photographer on a day we will never forget. She never once interrupted and told us to pose a certain way or hurry to get the cake cut! She carefully captured each savory moment and somehow did it in the background. She was so easy to work with and really did a magnificent! Her wedding packages were worth every penny and gave us a lot of memories to keep with us always!

Overland Park Convention Center ReceptionIn our opinion and in researching for our photographer, it seemed that anyone could line up the wedding party behind a beautiful backdrop, stage props or shoot the wedding decorations with various aperture settings to give the photos a professional feel. It was however, a different story when it came to capturing the feelings and emotions of the day in the eyes and faces of the subjects being photographed.  That being said, Rebecca & Catchlight Photography was absolutely fantastic with the formals and getting what we termed as the, “documentary shots.” These are the shots where we can say, “these are the people who came, those were our flowers, that’s how the tables were set” or, “look at our cake!”  Where she definitely met, exceeded and surpassed all expectations was capturing how my spouse and I felt on that day and in that specific moment. From getting ready, followed by our first look all the way to our last dance; the images captured when we didn’t realize she was there are the ones we LOVE! Her calming personality and artistic eye definitely made it much easier for us to fall into more of these moments on our day increasing not only the quality of the images but the quantity as well.  There are only positives to tell as she delivered on all of her timelines and deadlines set by her and us, told us what to expect so we could make realistic decisions on everything from how long certain shots would take to helping us order and prioritize what we wanted from her and our wedding day through the images she would be taking.  We highly recommend her for anything one needs a photographer for and we plan on using her again for our future special occasions!
