Trusting my daughter's wedding photography to Kendra was a very easy decision to make. She is a true professional and her photography is a testament of her passion for life.

Kendra is wonderful. Not only is she a brilliant photographer, she goes above and beyond to make sure that your special day is all that you expect it to be. I would recommend her to anyone, for any occasion. Heather and Mike

We were so impressed with Kendra and will gladly refer her to ALL our friends.

She had everything covered. Her professional attitude and attention to detail was well beyond what we expected out of a photographer. All my friends who were a part of the wedding want to refer her to their friends. You can't go wrong with Kendra. She will make your special day a dream come true on film. R & S

Hi Kendra! I'm in Vegas right now...I've been losing at every hand in every game. You know what they say...lucky in love, unlucky in gambling :) Thank you so, so, so much throughout the wedding planning and up till the last second of the wedding. You and your team are truly amazing. About two-thirds of my guests told me how impressed and amazing you were. It hasn't hit me yet that I'm married!! I hope you've recovered from our wedding :P Love, Mrs. B

I got your raw footage Cd's in the mail yesterday and LOVE them :) I went through all of them and found like my favorite 140 :) My question to you is...what's the next step? Do I just go ahead and print my favorites...?? Do I burn the copy CDs for my parents or were you giong to do that with just the touched up ones??? Sorry there's so many questions. I'm just a very excited girl who just saw her amazing pictures and who wants to hang them in every inch of her new house :) Amy & Eric

Dear Kendra, You are an amazing person! My entire family loves you! My friend just got engaged and will be calling you soon :) Thank you for taking such amazing pictures at affordable prices. You went above and beyond and we are extremely grateful. You are our friend for life. Best wishes in the New Year! T & M

I love when my brides choose Kendra as their photographer. I am guaranteed that they will be extremely pleased with Kendra's professional,but fun and creative style. Kendra's calm & flexible attitude allows couples to feel more comfortable and know that it's their day!

Couples have commented that after spending time with Kendra, not only is she an amazing photographer, but they're so happy with her work and personality that she's their new "best friend".

As the Director of Catering at The Hills Hotel, my goal is not only to sell food and beverage, but most important, to create an experience full of wonderfull memories. Kendra and her team help me accomplish this. You're hiring a photographer who captures all the important details.

And it's the details that make the difference. Maria Miller, The Laguna Hills Hotel, Dir. of Catering

When I met Kendra Duerst, I felt like a met a rockstar! I had seen her photographic work all around Orange County and she is the photographer for OC Bride Magazine. Pick up a copy and see her beautiful brides. She is a pro at making people feel relaxed and she knows the right moment to shoot a picture. She is most accommodating and is very well respected in the bridal community. I highly recommend her for your wedding or engagement photos and special events. Kathy Orr, La Palma Travel

Kendra is such a great professional to work with. She had such attention to detail and the best attitude to match. She has produced some of the most beautiful pictures and memories that I have seen. Jeff The Silent Chef

Kendra is a wonder. Here is top tier photographer who can do it all! For weddings she brings it all!! She is easy to work with, a real genius behind the lens and she just knows how to capture shots of moments that you didnt even notice. Never have I seen a photographer who has an assistant available to the bride and her party.. to be sure everyone is going look and be their best on camera, not to mention the snacks and extras she always brings. As an aside, her bridal fashion photography rivals many of the true great ones.. yet her down to earth personality and approach is the same whether she is working with a celebrity model or the typical bride. Everyone gets the star treatment with Kendra. I love to show up for a ceremony and see her and her team there. Call her. You will see what I mean. ReverendBrent.com

Kendra is an enchanting force of nature all her own. Her easy style and positive energy are captivating and you can rest assured every detail will be captured perfectly! Detail oriented, professional, artistic, easy to work with... that's Kendra! Candee by Sandee

From one photographer to another, Kendra rocks high fashion weddings! She is one busy photographer, always shooting, always in magazines, always willing and ready! She has a great personality that makes her shine above most photographers of her caliber. Kendra is a great photographer! Capturing Moments Photography

Kendra! Thank-you for making today so special for my family & I! You Rock! XO, Melissa
