So much more than a photographer...!

Where to start? Very rarely do you come across someone who not only has the talent to capture special moments in time, but also adds so much more to the occasion.

We first met Kim 3 years ago when she photographed our engagement in the grounds of Stowe. We had such a great afternoon, and the photos captured exactly what we wanted. When we later got married in the middle of social restrictions, Kim was extremely accommodating, and was such a hit with our guests that she basically became part of the event! It made such a difference to have someone who got on so well with everyone, and the smiles and memories immortalised in her photos attest to that. When it came to our "full" wedding this year, again Kim did not disappoint, and we now have a beautiful array of photos to remind us of all the amazing moments of the day.

Nothing was ever too much trouble, and her turnaround was really quick. Our guests all loved her, and she has a super cute dog. Seriously, what more could you ask for?

Professional, Warm, Calming, Friendly and Super Talented!

When we first started to look for wedding photographers we went to a few wedding fayre's and none really stood out, but as soon as we met Kim we knew she was the perfect choice! We saw examples of wedding's at our venue Stratton Court Barn, but when we met Kim in person we could tell she was professional, warm, calming, experienced, fun and bubbly. Everything we wanted our wedding to be! Also she loves dogs!!
None of the wedding party are keen on having their photos taken, and I was dreading the experience because I couldn't imagine looking like all those beautiful brides you see online, but that is exactly what Kim made me.
From the moment she arrived she knew exactly what to do, where to be and even the photos we didn't know we wanted. We didn't have to ask her to do anything, she directed us to make sure we got all those magical photos. All the photos were warm and showed all the emotions of the day, tears, laughter, joy, happiness and love. They were not staged or formal in any way.
Our family members even commented how Kim just fit right in, she wasn't intrusive or bossy but got everyone where they needed to be.
Our sneak peeks were with us within 48 hours!! And she quickly delivered on the photos online. They were beyond what I could have imagined.
we can't say enough how wonderful and talented she is, aswell as a joy to have at your wedding. She feels like a friend and part of the family.
Thank you Kim for capturing our special day in so many beautiful photos and being such a wonderful part of our day! Love Kim, Dean and Kaida xxx

More than 5 stars

Where do we start. Kim was absolutely incredible.
From the minute she arrived, she made all my guests and family feel at ease. She is so bubbly and genuine that people just warm around her.
Kim went above and beyond the entire day for us, especially me (the bride). From helping with the dress, to organising our family, to looking out for our son and so much more.
Kim has exceeded all expectations, and not only is she an incredible photographer, she is now our friend.
We love how we could be ourselves around her, and how passionate she is about her job, and mostly what a really lovely person she is.
We want to do another big event so we can have Kim with us.
Thank you Kim, you are one in a million xxx

The best ever photographer

Well I dont know where to start, we first booked Kim about 2 1/2 years ahead of our wedding. From start to finish she went above and beyond for us, she was everything we could have wished for and more! We had a pre wedding photoshoot last year which was amazing as she just wanted to get to know us! On the day of the wedding she was like a friend to us, making sure we were good and just made the photos run so so smoothly putting all our nerves at ease. Honestly will recommend her services to anyone and everyone, the best in the business. Her creativeness and style is everything we could of wished for and more, just hope this isn鈥檛 the last we鈥檒l see of her馃┓

Truly magical, best girl ever!

I literally don鈥檛 have enough words that could explain how highly I recommend Kim 馃ス we went to a wedding fair literally days after we got engaged whilst we were still in our little bubble, met Kim and we literally booked her up before anything else and ended up planning our wedding round her availability as we liked her so much. She stuck by us through covid date changes, and even came and did a doorstop shoot at our old house which is lovely memories for us 馃グ then our pre wedding shoot was such a laugh and the photos were absolutely gorgeous! Kim is the best hype girl ever, and she was 100% hand on heart the best person to have round you the morning of your wedding. She made me laugh, cry, and even cried at the speeches 馃槄 the sneak preview of our wedding images are just beautiful and I can鈥檛 wait to see the rest. I honestly can鈥檛 thank her enough for all that she鈥檚 done throughout our whole wedding period and I sincerely hope this isn鈥檛 the last we will see of her 馃挅

Superstar!

My husband and I got married in October, and Kimberley was truly fantastic! She understood what we wanted, and made everyone feel comfortable. She was a dream, and I honestly don't think the day would of gone as smoothly without her! She was not only our photographer, but our wedding day coordinator! I cherish our pictures so much! I cannot thank you enough!

An absolute pleasure to work with!

It honestly was like having a friend capture our photos, we loved her and so did our guests!! I think her non intrusive and captivating style puts everyone at ease, and it鈥檚 a bonus that she is so down to earth 鈽猴笍
The skill she has to create a photo that represents the emotion captured is phenomenal, I feel like I relive our wedding day whenever I look at the photos.
We are honoured to of had her as part of our magical day.

Absolutely wonderful!

Kim photographed our wedding in November. We honestly couldn鈥檛 have wished for a more fabulous photographer.

Thank you so much Kim 鉂わ笍

Had an amazing experience!

I have had Kimberley take photoshoot photos before and they have all been amazing. So when she said that she also did wedding photos we had to have her. Kimberley was great on the day and leading up to it. We had a wedding pre shoot as part of the package. The photos she took look amazing and on the day she did so much more than was asked of her including helping to keep my wife calm when she was getting nervous. We would definitely recommend KJA photography for your wedding.

Above and beyond!

I booked Kim after seeing her business advertised on a local Facebook page. Her pricing was very reasonable for the package we chose, but little did we know just how fabulous she was going to be, her service was easily worth every penny we paid! She made myself and my partner feel so at ease, gave us tips on what we should be doing on the day (when to walk in to the wedding breakfast etc.) and was a reassuring face when we both needed it. She even went as a far as to do up the buttons on the bridesmaid dresses! Kim was attentive to the shots we had requested, particularly family ones and even gave us instant solutions when we had a few short rain showers on the day. I honestly cannot recommend Kim enough, we鈥檒l never be able to thank her enough and I feel that, seeing as she only lives down our road, we鈥檝e made a friend too 鉂わ笍

Outstanding Photographer!

We cannot recommend Kim highly enough. She was the absolute perfect wedding photographer and we feel so lucky to have met Kim by chance at a venue open day. Our pre wedding photoshoot was incredibly relaxed and Kim made us feel so comfortable. On the wedding day, Kim felt more like a friend. She is incredibly talented and wonderfully creative. We couldn鈥檛 be happier with our photos and they absolutely capture the perfect day we had full of love and laughter. Thank you so much Kim!

The best photographer and most genuinely lovely person you're going to meet!

My husband and I first met Kim at an open day at Stratton Court Barn back in April 2022. We knew as soon as we met her, and saw her work, that she was the person we wanted to capture our wedding day. She is so open, friendly, and so so easy to talk to, she makes you feel at ease straight away.
Neither me nor my husband are overly comfortable in front of the camera, so to have the opportunity of a pre wedding shoot with Kim was ideal. She came to meet us at Blenheim where we'd decided to have our shoot, and right from the off we were chatting away, and again, she put us right at ease. We had so much fun, never stopped laughing and the photos we got from the shoot were stunning. We then couldn't wait for our big day to see Kim again!
Our wedding day arrived and you could tell that Kim was in her element. She loves what she does so much and she thinks of every little detail to capture. All of our guests have come back to us since the day to say how lovely she was and the photos....well they're just something else. We couldn't have asked for more from Kim, every picture is amazing, she has captured our day so perfectly.
We also opted for the physical photo album from Kim, and my word, it's beautiful. To have a physical keepsake, as well as all the digital photos, is perfect for us. Something for us to keep picking up and flicking through and show other people the magic of our day.
Throughout the whole process, nothing was too much trouble, any questions we had, Kim responded to quickly. And not just about photography but any aspect of our day. We could not be happier with everything that she has done for us. Thank you so much Kim! Xx
