Kim is AMAZING! I was very skeptical picking a photographer as my sister's wedding photographer turned out less than stellar. I have to say Kim surpassed all my expectations! I spoke to about 5-6 other photographers before I knew Kim was the one for us. She listened, made suggestions on timing for the desired photos we liked & was so easy to work with! She's put me at ease over the phone & then in meeting her in person & shooting our engagement session. I've never felt so comfortable & been captured so beautifully! Our wedding day photos turned out amazing!
We had a long list of desires photos for the day & she nailed it: got the groups & set up. She knew the family names & with her creative eye made for incredible shots.
Kim listens, captures the natural moments, makes you feel comfortable, & the out come is absolutely magazine worthy!
She did our engagement & wedding day photos. She will be doing our future life events too.
Turn around on getting the photos was SO QUICK!
Everyone has been telling me how amazing we look.
You cannot go wrong with Kim! I'm so darn happy! - Evelyne & Brendon Muller
I love so many of the photos that I am finding it very hard to choose the ones I like best and so is Allen. I have shared the blog of our wedding on my Facebook page and I received the most likes for any post I have ever done! My friends and family have raved about how Kim managed to capture the moment and our relationship all at the same time. I feel truly blessed to have chosen Kim to document our special day. I am grateful for all her hard work and her willingness to be creative and open to how the day unfolded. I would go above and beyond to recommend Francois Photography because of Kim's commitment to her art and her clients. - Larissa Michael Griffin
Kim is the BEST! Kim photographed my wedding and I could not be any happier with the work Kim did for us. Kim was HIGHLY recommended to me by a friend who had previously used Kim as a wedding photographer. The recommendation was spot on! From start to finish, Kim exceeded my expectations and I truly enjoyed working with her every step of the way. She is extremely professional and puts in lots of thought, effort, time, and work to make everything perfect. I used Kim for engagement photos, bridal photos, and for the actual wedding. Each time, Kim went above and beyond to make sure she was able to get the best photos for us. Kim even met us at the framing store to pick out the frame that best complimented my bridal portrait, she coordinated with all vendors extensively, she came to the rehearsal to make sure she was prepared and knew everyone, she scoped out the area and found fun and new locations for the wedding party to take photos, she memorized names of family and friends in the wedding, and it goes on and on. Her attention to detail is superb and most importantly she knows how to make the event fun and enjoyable for all, which results in stunning photographs that truly capture the event. You can tell that Kim truly loves photography and it shows in her work. I am very thankful that I picked Kim and I recommend her without hesitation to anyone else who is looking to hire a photographer. - Erin & Michael Jansen
From the time I contacted Kim to obtain a bid for my upcoming wedding until the day we saw all of the pictures of our wedding I could not have been happier. I am a very Type A person, I like to have a plan and a timeline. Before we ever signed the contract, Kim had looked up when the sun would set on our wedding day and came up with a timeline would allow us to take pictures during the daylight and expedite getting to the reception. I was always very pleased with how quickly Kim got back to me - usually within minutes, always within a day!I absolutely love all of the pictures from our engagement session, my bridal portrait session and of course the wedding. Kim was always quick to post pictures and we spent hours going through all of the images. Working with Kim made my wedding so much less stressful than it could have be. She was professional, efficient and provided us with wonderful images. One of my favorite things about Kim's photography packages is they include money to use towards images after the wedding which was a major perk to us! Kim was one of the highlights of our wedding weekend and we are so lucky to have wonderful images we will cherish forever! - Kate & Brett Griffin
When it came to hiring a professional photographer to capture the precious memories of my wedding, I asked my friends who they would use. Every one of them said they would recommend Kim Francois without hesitating. Even my wedding event coordinator suggested Kim. When I first met with her, I was amazed at the amount of detailed notes she took, questions she asked about what was most important to me, and suggestions she had that I hadn't even dreamed of. She even came to my rehearsal to check out the lighting and set up so that she could choose the most strategic locations for photographs. On the day of my wedding she was there from start to finish and the images she took truly captured the joy of my wedding day. The images I have, as well as my beautiful leather-bound wedding album, are treasures -- as is Kim. She is really wonderful and I would have no problem recommending her to anyone. - Rori & Randy White
Kim did an amazing job at our wedding, adding some really fun and meaningful moments to the day with our pre-ceremony photo shoot. She took full advantage of the fabulous venue to create a photo-story of our wedding with whimsy and romance. Unlike other experiences I've had at weddings, she was not intrusive on the family time or the celebration and was flexible enough to capture what we wanted without interrupting the flow of events. - Laura & Scott Hamilton
Kim shot our wedding, and to this day people still talk about how wonderful our photographer was and how beautiful our pictures are! She was so wonderful to work with throughout the entire process. My husband and I wanted engagement photos taken both outdoors and also in a studio, and we searched high and low for someone who was willing to do both. So many photographers right now are skilled for natural light photography only, and while that's lovely, we really wanted someone who could also take a great studio photo without it looking like an Olan Mills shoot. Kim was the answer! She has an excellent studio with lots of room, and the areas surrounding her studio downtown were perfect for the outdoor portion of our engagement shoot. When we got those incredible photos back, I just knew our wedding photos would be exactly what we had hoped for. Kim also shot my bridal photos before the wedding, and let me tell you, I have never felt more beautiful in my entire life! (Well, except for the wedding day!) Of course, those photos were stellar also. My mom and I both cried when we saw the slideshow of my bridals that Kim prepared. Kim is great at directing you to stand or move in a way that photographs well, but doesn't look unnatural. I think clients that may be slightly nervous about having photos taken will be put completely at ease in front of Kim's camera. And as for the wedding... Not only was Kim completely organized and totally on top of timelines, communication, and everything else that goes into working with a tight wedding day schedule, but she and her assistant captured EVERY. SINGLE. MOMENT of our wedding without missing a beat. I can't even believe that she and her assistant were able to be in so many places at once...and aside from the posed/formal shots we chose to do, we didn't even notice them at all the whole time! Kim's presence at the wedding was efficient and seamless. Our wedding photos completely tell the "story" of our wedding day - not one moment went uncaptured. And in a true testament to how utterly gorgeous Kim's work is, our wedding photos were stellar enough to be selected for a feature story on our wedding in the Austin Wedding Day Magazine! If you are looking for a timeless, realistic, photojournalist with excellent technical skills and a deep feeling for her work and her clients, you should choose Kim. Thank you! - Katie & Keith Astoria
Kim's talent is amazing! We had a wonderful time at our wedding - best day of our lives. And Kim captured the love, fun and romance so that we can experience that day for the rest of our lives. Best of all, the album she designed for us is a work of art. I love how she managed to select just the right images to tell our story and make it come alive on each page. We so appreciate all that you did for us. We will be back with our children to let you capture their story too. Thank you - Liz and Javier Telez
