“It was a joy to work with both Kate and her husband. Kate is talented, creative, kind, flexible, and goes the extra mile to make sure you get the kind of wedding photos you are going to treasure all throughout your marriage.

On our chilly fall wedding day, although I knew she must be freezing, Kate never complained and was cheery, making the entire wedding party feel comfortable and at ease. As much as we like to think we are models, we all needed a little direction from time to time and Kate knew how to communicate her vision in order to get the best possible shot. Her artist eye found a beautiful backdrop for the photos that I would have otherwise missed, adding more character to the photos with fall foliage. In addition, in between our engagement shoot and our wedding Kate and her husband moved to the Cleveland area, yet she still remained in constant contact, drove all the way to the Polaris/Columbus area, and returned our finished photos to us in a timely manner. She is a wonder!

We will definitely be working with her again, whether it be for an anniversary shoot or a baby announcement (NOT YET). We JUST got married, people!”


“Kate has an absolute passion for photography, and it shines through in her work! The engagement session was very laid-back, and Kate makes it fun. We get so many compliments from people that see the pictures hanging in our house. Kate is extremely accommodating and responsive during all of the planning. She’s open to all ideas and offers many great ones as well. We look forward to our wedding with her as the photographer because we know the pictures will allow us to reflect on the day for many years to come. We would recommend her work in a heartbeat!”


“Working with Kate was an absolute joy. The photographs she took are a very meaningful piece of our wedding day that we will always cherish. Kate did an excellent job not only recording the events of the day but also capturing our personalities in her work. She was very prepared for the events and did not take our attention away from our intimate time together. We were overjoyed when we received our photographs and heard a multitude of compliments from family and friends praising her work.

Throughout our engagement and wedding day she was very accommodating and helpful even when weather conditions did not cooperate resulting in a last-minute change of plans. She was exceptionally easy to work with and always a step ahead of us to capture the special moments of our day. We have nothing but praise for Kate and recommend her to anyone in need of a professional and talented photographer.”


   As we think back on our wedding experience, there isn’t anyone we would have rather had to capture each moment than Kate Mannella Photography. From our first discussions, to our engagement shoot, through the wedding and reception, all the way to the day our photos arrived, Kate has been both thoroughly professional and caring. We appreciated how seamlessly Kate and her staff flowed into the magic of the moment to record our memories with beautiful and technically brilliant shots. We’re grateful to know that as the years go on, and memories may fade away, that we can always be reminded of that life-changing day in vivid detail, thanks to the hard work and talent of Kate Mannella Photography.”
