Kismet Visuals took first place in the Photographer category.
Owner Allison Leonard and the Kismet Visuals team don’t just snap pictures; they capture moments. The moment a groom first sees a bride in her dress. The moment a cake gets cut. The moment a couple begins their life together. Capturing the smallest gestures and details on your biggest day takes instinct and experience, and the Kismet team mixes contemporary, natural, traditional and photojournalistic styles to achieve excellence in spades. On Kismet’s Instagram, Leonard aptly describes her team’s approach as “pure, authentic and timeless storytelling.”
A member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), Leonard has received the Wedding Wire's Couple's Choice Award for seven years in a row and has a 5-star rating on both WeddingWire and The Knot.
Kismet’s team is with you throughout your big day, from arrival to departure (though hourly coverage options are available for smaller, more intimate weddings). Each package includes an engagement shoot and a second photographer to make sure every moment and angle are covered. Also included: an online gallery of proofs, a USB of all images including a print release, a handmade glass proof box containing 4-by-6-inch printed proofs, an heirloom photo album and more.
A “selfie booth”with instant social sharing and custom branding (such as adding your wedding hashtag) is also available as an add-on, as are boudoir and next-day trash-the-dress shoots, canvas prints and more.
Kismet’s professionalism, turnaround time and overall commitment to excellence led readers to vote it into the top spot in an ultra-competitive category that had nearly 200 contenders.
