"When we were looking for a photographer for our wedding, we knew that we wanted someone with a great eye for emotion and spirit, someone who would capture the heart and joy of our wedding rather than someone who would diligently take all of the standard poses. And we wanted someone we would be delighted to spend the day with. We got everything we wanted and more from Kathleen.
We initially approached Kathleen because we loved her photographs of the All Souls Procession. We were drawn to the way that she sees. She attends to the quiet spirit and emotional heart of the Procession, focusing on the Urn and the messages that go into it. And after reviewing her photos of cycling and other events, we also knew that she has a knack for action.
When we met to discuss the possibility of her photographing our wedding, we discovered that we also love her fabulous vibe and kind, generous spirit.
She was with us throughout our wedding weekend--most of the day on Friday and all day and late into the night on Saturday. Many of our guests commented on how wonderful she was to have around and how much they loved working with her. And her photographs are ones that our whole family will treasure for years--from the striking photo of Melanie's 85-year-old grandmother to the laughing group shot of Nick's aunts to the breathtakingly beautiful images of a shy young cousin and our three-year-old niece. She set everyone at ease and captured the joy and heart of our wedding. We love her!"-Melanie Cooley and Nick Tomazic
"Browsing through our wedding photographs taken by the talented Kathleen Dreier and I am once again amazed at the love, happiness and laughter she captures. If anyone needs an amazing photographer for a wedding or other special event check her out! The photo you have included from our wedding is, quite possibly, the best picture of me in existence. It is also one of my favorite photos of the wedding, and my favorite moment of the ceremony (when the ring became stuck on my finger). Great memories, GREAT photographer!"-Jessica and Kyle Wheatley
"I have known Kathleen Dreier for twenty-five years and I consider her to be "Family." She has been present, with compassion and sensitivity, behind the lens, at all of our family milestones. She captured those fleeting moments, the looks, the hugs, the tears, for us to savor again and again. I don't know how to begin to thank her for the precious images that have come to define who we are."--Barbara Johnson, Co-Owner Mimosa Market, Bisbee AZ
"So many people speak today of service and professionalism. Well, Kathleen is the epitome of both and she has a great eye and passion for her craft. It is such a joy to work with someone who does what they say, knows their business and is able to make you feel like a "Real" Human Being in the process. I highly recommend her for anyone wanting to capture "their" moments." -Doug Davis, Artist/Producer
“Kathleen is wonderful to work with. Her rare gift for capturing the emotion and energy of the human spirit makes her work stand out. Kathleen has been one of Cyclovia's official event photographers since the event started and each year her images tell the beautiful human stories of the day.” -Kylie Walzak, Cyclovia Tucson Event Coordinator
"Kathleen was wonderful to work with – she created a relaxed and comfortable environment for the actors while she disappeared behind the camera. Kathleen was able to capture the absolute essence of each actor's performance. I will work with Kathleen again and again…and again!"--Carrie Hill, Sacred Chicken Productions
"I consider Kathleen Dreier to be one of the finest event photographers in the whole Tucson area. She was the first person who came to mind when Getty Images asked if I knew another photographer in town with whom to share a commercial assignment." -James F. Palka, 2011 Pulitzer Prize nominated event photographer
