Love Notes

Devyn & Eli

Kendra did an absolutely amazing job photographing our wedding! As an out of state bride planning a downtown Greenville wedding, it can be a daunting task trying to select a photographer out of the many talented artists in the Upstate. However, as soon as I contacted Kendra, I knew she would be a perfect fit for us because she was so sweet and genuine. We instantly loved her real, unretouched photography style which can be rare to find these days with everyone wanting perfect, photoshopped images.

Throughout the planning process, she was excellent at keeping in touch and always checked in with me to see if I needed anything, which I really appreciated. On our wedding day, even though we had never met in person, we instantly felt so comfortable with her. Since we decided against doing a first look, we had a tight photography schedule and she stayed organized, calm and collected the entire time. She did an outstanding job capturing each special moment!

Everyone can't stop raving about how beautiful and timeless our photos are and we are SO in love with them! We couldn't be happier we chose Kendra as our wedding photographer. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and we would recommend her to anyone!

My daughter and I knew we loved Kendra after reading her first email. We looked at her work and booked her for my daughter's wedding.  In our communication with Kendra, we felt like we were her only clients...and that we may be her favorites.  (I know she makes everyone feel like this! :) We booked a family photo shoot with Kendra so we could meet her before our wedding. It was a blast. Everyone in our extended family felt comfortable and we had a great time. Kendra has a plan and takes charge of the session, but makes you feel totally at ease at the same time. The pictures were perfect!
My daughter and her fiance had their engagement session with Kendra and came home BEAMING from a wonderful time with Kendra...and the pictures were incredible. 

Next up is the wedding in May...to say we are excited is an understatement.   Personable, fun, capable, talented, friendly, confident...a perfect combination for a photographer.

Where do I start?! Kendra is AMAZING!!! I met her at a wedding festival and fell in love with her booth, so I had her do my engagement pictures and absolutely LOVED them. For my wedding, photography has always been very high on my priority list. I did not want to skimp in that area. So after the engagement session, I knew I wanted her to photograph our wedding. I have only seen a few sneak peak pictures, but know without a doubt that I will be more than pleased with her work!

She knows what she is doing, moves quickly, and takes away stress in all of the hectic moments. Also a great people person :) Will most likely be using her for family pictures once the babies start coming ;) Would recommend her to anyone!!!!

Lori & Josh

Our experience with Kendra Martin Photography was exceptional! Kendra photographed our engagement photos, my bridal portraits, and all the events of our wedding. The moments of our wedding were perfectly captured for us to look at forever! Kendra has such a friendly personality and is very easy to work with. We loved her personality just as much as her photography style. We would highly recommend contacting Kendra for your special day!

Cooper

I’m so grateful you captured those memories just before everything was about to change so drastically! I really feel like you captured all of our personalities and some special moments between all of us. We all loved the positive energy you brought to the shoots . My family isn’t one to often be in front of the camera, but you made us all feel comfortable and have a blast while getting the job done. You handled the shoots effortlessly, but still producing beautiful photos for us to have forever. I love how simple and clean these photos are, they will never be old-fashioned or out-dated. I am so happy the way the photos turned out

Christina & Danny

Having Kendra photograph my wedding was one of the best decisions I made as a bride. Kendra was so patient with me. She took the time to plan with me, help me with my budget, even help me with other details of my wedding that had nothing to do with pictures! We were total strangers when I first emailed her, but I instantly felt like I was one of her friends upon just a few email exchanges.

On my wedding day, Kendra was right by my side to help me when I needed her and then she was totally behind the scenes when she needed to be. She also handled my very large wedding party (and rowdy group of firemen groomsmen) like a champ! For my photos, I didn’t want them to look photoshopped and too “fixed.” I wanted my wedding photos to reflect my wedding day for just what it was: simple, rustic, real, and southern. That is EXACTLY how my photos came out. My husband and I cherish each shot that Kendra took of our wedding day! We have them displayed all throughout our house and have shared them with all of our family members.

The best part of having Kendra as my photographer aside from the great photos, is establishing a friendship with her. Right after my wedding, she moved with her family to South Carolina. Even though she’s states away, we still keep in touch every now and then. It’s been a little over a year since my wedding day and my husband and I recently found out we were expecting a baby due in January 2015. One of the first people I told was Kendra. I can’t imagine anyone else taking maternity pictures for me, she’s just so great! 

You really can’t go wrong with having Kendra take pictures for any of your special memories that you want captured in beautiful photos that will last a lifetime. She’s the best!!

Brittany

After using Kendra for senior/couple pictures, I couldn't have been more excited that she was available for my wedding day!! Not only does she take some AMAZING pictures but she is so involved in every moment, which makes "getting in front of the camera" a lot more comfortable!

I have never met a photographer that really takes time to learn about the individual or couple, as much as Kendra does. It makes the experience so much better knowing that the person capturing some of your favorite memories is also so genuinely interested in your story! So excited about the friendship that came from using Kendra as my photographer!" :)

Lindsey

Kendra was so awesome to work with! She did an amazing job with our wedding photos and was super supportive throughout the planning process. I highly recommend her!!

Sarah V.

Hi!!  Kendra, omg every single image I absolutely love!!!  They are the best!!!!  Every image you captured is just perfect!!!  Thank you so much!!!  I can't wait to share them too!!  Thank you!

Jennifer

If you're looking for a photographer to capture your family in its most natural way, look no more! Kendra has a knack for all things beautiful. She chooses the perfect light and surroundings to no doubt create photos that you will treasure forever. I highly recommend her for classic, timeless photos for any occasion!!

Meagan

I can’t tell you how much I highly recommend Kendra Martin for all of your photography needs. She has literally been capturing our memories for YEARS. From a couple’s shoot before kiddos, birth and newborns, to now family and individual children shoots, she has taken them all!

Each time we have a session with her, I know that we are going to get the most awesome pictures. And for me, someone who hates being photographed, she always makes me feel 100% at ease, and I actually end up having fun at the sessions. Trust me, that’s hard to do! She works incredibly hard to scout just the right locations and always makes sure that she knows exactly what kind of pictures/theme we want from the photos. She’s the best!

Erin & Clay

Kendra is a bride’s dream photographer. She is upbeat, calming, passionate about her work and cares about her clients. COMFORT is the feeling I would best describe my experience with Kendra. From our first conversations through email and phone she made me feel extremely comfortable and I felt like I could truly “check” wedding photographer off my to-do list.

I didn’t use a wedding planner so I really relied on her on my wedding day to direct me, the wedding party and our families through photos before and after the ceremony. She helped make my wedding day stress free and on top of that she had her own cross-country move the next day!

Kendra’s photos of our wedding were perfect! Her love is in the details and she made receiving our photos so special. I couldn’t wait to put them together in a photo book and hung throughout our house!

Melissa

Kendra, I want to take a second to thank you for the AMAZING newborn photos you took of Mason. You have captured all of the biggest moments in our lives and we have never been disappointed; in fact, we are always surprised that we actually can take a good photo if the right person is behind the camera. You’ve just captured our biggest moment to date and we could not have asked for anything more.

We absolutely adore the photos of Mason and already have about ten of them hanging on our walls. We were a little nervous about booking the session for such a crazy time in our lives, but the second you stepped in our door you put all of us at ease (2 week old and puppy included) and the actual session itself is one of my favorite memories from those first weeks with our son. We will cherish those photos and that day forever. THANK YOU SO MUCH and I will be calling you (in the blink of an eye) for his one year photos!

Kimberly & John

We were so thrilled when we found Kendra Martin Photography! We fell in love with her pictures and style by looking at her website/blog and we fell in love with Kendra after our first email exchange! She captured the story and details of our love so beautifully and we will forever be grateful! Hopefully we’ll get to use her for more exciting life events in the future; we couldn’t imagine anyone else capturing those moments because she has really become part of our family!

Elizabeth & Rob

Kendra is the best photographer we've ever worked with. The care and detail she puts into your photo session before, during, and after makes the entire process so enjoyable! She also communicates so well and is always available to answer any questions.  We absolutely love our photos and the time we got to spend with her. 

Kelly

There is that meditation a mom has before the photo shoot.. “Dear, Jesus! Please let us get just ONE shot that I can frame! Please let me have a physical memento of the overflowing love that I know we have for each other, but is rarely seen in one unanimous moment!”

After the proofs from our family session with Kendra, I wept!

Because in that brief time with us, she really got US. Unstaged and unscripted, Kendra got it! She saw the in-between of boys wrestling and enjoying their candy bribery. She snapped the look of “I’m glad to do this life with you babe!” while my man wrangled the kid who got away. It’s as if she stepped into our life and saw who we are and how we love. I have those tangible images of my cup running over.

I treasure them! Thank you, Kendra!!

Michelle & JJ

Kendra is a truly talented and gifted photographer. We were lucky enough to stumble onto her photography website a few years ago and have used her photography services multiple times since then. She has photographed many important milestones in our lives, from our engagement and wedding, to maternity, newborn, and our family. We are so thankful that we found such a sweet, fun, creative, and incredible photographer.

Sarah & Joe

Kendra is amazing! She has a precious spirit and is very professional, involved, helpful, talented, and creative! We would not have wanted any other photographer to capture our wedding day! She was beyond successful in capturing the emotions and special moments of our wedding!

Joanne

Kendra I cannot thank you enough for capturing my family so perfectly! I love each and every single shot you took and it's so hard to just pick one.  I never have to worry how our pictures will turn out when you're behind the lens. You're always so professional and it shows in your work. Our family pictures are something I will always cherish and are so classic I will never want to take them of my walls.  Thank you again for another successful session!

Paige

My photoshoot with Kendra Martin Photography was in Botany Bay, which is a beautiful location in Edisto, South Carolina. Kendra made me feel as though we had known each other for years. This instantly made me feel comfortable in front of the camera. She's confident, professional, friendly, and efficient, which made the photoshoot a fun and amazing experience. I can't wait for my next photoshoot with Kendra Martin Photography!

Cameron & Zac

Kendra is a professional. If you are looking for high quality classic timeless shots she is your girl! We are more than pleased with the way all of our photos turned out from the engagement, bridals and day of. I cannot recommend her enough!

Eli

Having the opportunity to work with Kendra was more than I could have asked for. She was so personable, fun, and easy to work with. Not to mention, awesome behind the camera. I will definitely be calling her for future sessions!

Melissa

I do not typically take the time to post reviews (shame on me) but this is one business that deserves a GREAT ONE! Kendra is everything I could possibly want in a photographer. She is organized, dedicated, accommodating, fun and most importantly she takes AMAZING photos. In fact, I selected the location of our last photos and not only was Kendra willing to jump on board, she knew more about the location then I did, when we arrived. I have been working with Kendra for years and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a photographer who can literally capture your personality in a picture!
