"Katie is the most talented photographer we have ever met. Our engagement photos were fun, unique, and beautiful. Friends and family all requested copies of these and ordered them to frame at home. They're truly inspired. On the day of our wedding, Katie and her crew were incredible to work with. They recognized that this was OUR day and they took photographs to capture the moments, decorations, and elements that made the day ours. We received a "peek" at more than 100 photographs just one week after our wedding so we could relive the day when we returned from our honeymoon. We're looking so forward to receiving them all, but with just the small peek, my mom already said, "I have all I could have ever wanted here, I don't know how I'm going to choose when we see them all."I look at the photos ALL the time and relive the day as I look at them. The expressions on people's faces and the moments that we couldn't see as we were busy all day, were amazing to note. We couldn't be happier with what we have and we couldn't imagine having had another photographer." - Chelsea W.
"Katie was absolutely amazing! She was very thorough; got to know me personally to help determine what I really wanted. Prior to the wedding she sent me a survey of sorts to fill out that she knew exactly who I wanted pictures with and who I did not. She is extremely prompt and responded within hours (sometimes minutes!) to any email I sent her. The atmosphere she creates is wonderful! Not only is she an experienced professional, she is funny and relaxed, so much that my normally anti-photo husband had very few complaints at having to be photographed all night! She definitely played a significant part in making my wedding day spectacular."

"Katie did such an amazing job! I still look at our pictures at least once a week and still can't choose images to make an album because I want to put all of them in the album. She captured EVERYTHING we wanted and more. By looking at our pictures, we feel like we're right back in the day. Every time we view them together, we think of a new story to share or enjoy reliving that special day. She also is on top of the game with all of the vendors! She did so much in preparation for our wedding day. She makes you feel like your wedding is the most important day in the world. She's also a blast to be with! All of my girls and I had fun having her there getting ready with us. She's gutsy and will stand in the middle of the street to get the photo you really want. And the promptness is so awesome! We were able to view so many pictures before we even left for our honeymoon! It was the perfect topper to our weekend...We hope Katie stays around the Indy area as we look forward to having her capture more moments in our lives as our family grows. Simply put, one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding was to hire her. Not only will you not be disappointed, you will be AMAZED with her work. You will walk away from your wedding day with pictures capturing your emotions. It's really amazing." - Jenny P.
"Katie and her crew were fabulous! Our engagement pictures, wedding pictures, and album were gorgeous and all of her people were great with the big wedding party we had. I would recommend Katie to any and everyone. Her creativity is without bounds and her energy is contagious." - Karla W.
"Katie was recommended by a colleague. We were attempting to plan our wedding in under three months and he thought that Bohemian Red might be just what we were looking for. He could not have been more correct. Katie not only listened to us, she also understood our hopes and needs. I truly believe she captured the soul of our wedding - not something I would say lightly. As a particularly unsentimental person, I am surprised how often I spend time looking at our photos. They perfectly conjure up the magic of our day and bring back so much love and emotion.Tactially, Katie was a consummate professional. This is my second wedding and my husband's first. With a step-daughter and ex-husband in the mix, we were a bit concerned about the family dynamic and photo arrangements. Katie treated everyone with the utmost gentleness and respect - capturing what we needed and what our extended and mixed family expected. So many of our guests and family members have commented on what a wonderful person and photographer she was.
Tactically, we arranged everything by email and phone since she was in IN and we are in Chicago. She always made sure to call to confirm details, including a quick call the day before to calm my nerves. It was minimally time consuming and very organized. As for cost, I still can't believe what a bargain it was for her skill set and the number of photos. We even had a photo booth (which I would highly recommend - hilarious) and the cost was STILL very affordable. Katie and her assistant arrived very early and made sure to check out the entire site, leading to some beautiful photos of our unique setting. My one and only critique would be of her assistant. His skill set was far below Katie's. He was pleasant but seemed to be somewhat in her way, at times.Let me wrap up this saccharin, but honest, review by saying that you simply cannot go wrong by hiring Katie. If you want stiff, lifeless photos, then this is not for you. But if you are looking for someone to capture the joy, movement and spirit of your special occasion, you need to contact Katie." -Elizabeth G.
"With style and substance Bohemian Red Images captured all of the magic moments on our wedding day. With professionalism and reliability, Katie made my wife and I feel comfortable from the day we met her. Without doubt, we would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone we know. We do so regularly. It's pretty cool to have people comment that 'When I get married, I want your same photographer.' I think that says it all." - Tony K.
"Being a guy I wasn't to excited about a photo shoot. Once Katie got rolling with the camera though, she made me feel very relaxed and at ease. I actually had a lot of fun while she was shooting. At the same time she was always professional and seemed to never miss a beat. Her creativity and style really suited us and I would highly recommend her." Wez J.
"Katie Basbagill of Bohemian Red Images is simply the most talented photographer we know. We chose her because her ability with the lens is not simply tied to weddings but an array of things. She has a wide perspective, unbelievable vision and the ability to capture moments without you knowing! We had a very small and intimate wedding and she caught that beautifully and magically, so that even today we can still look at the shots and remember every emotion, smell, taste and sound. On a wedding day it's vital to be able to reconnect with such a fleeting but important rite of passage." - Erina L.
"Katie is amazing! We LOVE our wedding photos. She beautifully captured our personality and style in every photo. She was fantastically organized and incorporated what we wanted with her own artistic perspective and ideas. Katie is one of the most energetic and positive people I have ever met and brought an incredible energy and soul to our special day. I highly recommend Bohemian Red Images!"- Tricia M.
