MEET KIM BUTLER
I am awkward as heck but I’m also very bubbly. I can make light of any situation. I am also a bit of a wild child. Which is ironic because I didn’t really become like that until my 30’s! But I love to dance and will totally get down with any bride on the dance floor. I prefer mixed drinks to beer, but will do shots with you at your reception. I got bit by the wanderlust bug when I was 24 when I went to London and Africa for 2 weeks. Been obsessed with seeing new places ever since. Only now I want to have a couple with me. So I hope you don’t mind me tagging along to beautiful locations while I have my camera creating some seriously pretty photos of you. Iceland and Alaska are at the top of my bucket list! I travel as much as I can every year and no matter where I go, I make friends. But don’t get me fooled. I am also a homebody. Netflix, my dogs and my couch are my soulmates. I have been married to my best friend for 8 years. We got married on 7/11 and we get a slurpee every year! It’s the small things that make any relationship work. Growing up on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington, and coming from a family of hikers, I love the outdoors. Climbing up a mountain for you to take your photos is one of my love languages. I prefer to capture the real you rather than have you stand there looking stiff or just “looking cute.” I will use potty humor if needed to make you laugh for your photos. Nothing beats a natural laugh after making a fart joke. I have worked very hard over the last 10 to make sure that what I create for you makes you walk away from your session feeling more connected to your loved ones than your iPhone. Let’s get some Ice cream (I live for Ben & Jerry’s Dairy free Coconut Seven Layer Bar) and talk about how I can take photos you will legit love.

Kim is outstanding! Her eye for capturing a moment is spot on! She is extremely talented and her creativity shines through every photo that she takes. She is easy going and makes the whole photo process flow smoothly. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to INVEST in beautiful photographs to cherish for a lifetime! Update: Kim recently photographed my wedding and I can’t say enough how blown away I am with the photos. Not to mention the entire experience with her on that day was so much fun! Picking a photographer is an investment and I believe I made one of the best investment ever! Kim, absolutely stunning work!

I can’t speak highly enough of Kim! My fiance and I are not used to being in the spotlight but Kim made us feel so comfortable- allowing us to be ourselves and therefore capturing perfect sweet moments of our love during our engagement session. We can’t wait for her to join us here in Maui for our wedding!! I have also seen dozens of pieces of her other work and it is breathtaking. She is very responsive, professional, funny, and warm.

Kim did an incredible job with my couples session. She brought music and made us comfortable, we were constantly laughing even though our legs were dying hiking up sand dunes at Cape Kiwanda, and she captured the most beautiful picture at the end with water (as well as all the others). Plus, she captured a smile I haven’t seen im myself for more years than I can count. I’m more than impressed and all my family and my boyfriend’s family srr as well. Thank you Kim! You’ve given us pictures to treasure forever.
