Testimonials - Kat Deptula


I don’t like to talk about how it is to work with me. I don’t talk about how satisfied you will be with my work. I let you speak for me!

Kat took photos at our wedding and she was excellent. Really fitted into the ceremony. She was super friendly and professional, and had some inspired ideas for the photographers both documenting the day and the creative shoot afterwards. The photographs were incredibly beautiful and fun. We absolutely loved her and would recommend her to anyone.


From the very beginning when we first spoke to Kat, she made us feel so relaxed and reassured that we would have an incredible day with fantastic photos. Kat was so discrete during the more intimate events of getting ready and the ceremony that we didn’t even notice she was there and then made us feel so relaxed when we ventured out on our own for a short photo shoot. We couldn’t recommend Kat enough, she was so professional and always went the extra mile to capture the details and events at our wedding.

Honeymoon couple cuddling in Iceland

I requested Kat take photos on our honeymoon in Iceland. She was very flexible and super easy to work with! My husband, who was initially not much into doing a photo shoot, really enjoyed meeting Kat and the whole experience. She was flexible when we were running late and worked in the rain. Our photos turned out beautiful. We can’t wait to print them and hang them in our house! We would definitely do another photo session again!!

Kat was so kid and professional! She immediately made me feel comfortable and at ease. Kat also knew lots about the heart of the city and was able to suggest other things for me to do on my trip as well (so helpful!). I would absolutely recommend this experience with her to anyone looking for something unique and fun to do in Reykjavik.

We had a wonderful experience with Kat! She was kind and thoughtful the whole time, guiding us in poses and know good places to shoot. We actually ended up having a surprise ending, as my boyfriend proposed during the session! Kat captured it all and the pictures are something we will treasure forever!

Kate was on time, friendly, engaging and did a wonderful job finding ways to connect with us and help us relax. She showed us parts of the city that I would not have found otherwise and put us at ease for our photos. Plus the photos are amazing!

She was kind, patient, and friendly. Not only did I get some AMAZING photos, I also enjoyed some great conversation. It was nice being able to share about my dreams and goals with a creative individual. I highly recommend this for a solo traveler (or anyone) who might feel concerned that they won’t have nice photos of them taken during their trip . She not only has intimate knowledge of the country, but also an amazing personality that makes being photographed a comfortable and fun experience. I will surely 100% recommend!!

What an AMAZING experience! Not only does Kate have the perfect eye for cool locations, is super professional and experienced, she also is such an awesome person to spend time with. I had such a wonderful time with her and will remember every minute. I love the pics she selected and turned into something really special. Trust me- even if you’re not too familiar to posing in front of a camera, she will make you feel good about it and let you be an active part. Thank you Kate! In many respects!

I have spent two hours absolutely delightful. I am not comfortable with shootings and lack a bit of confidence. However Kate was successful at getting the best out of every shot. She is passionate and very friendly. I highly recommend her and I would not hesitate to use her talents in Iceland or anywhere else!

couple petting the cat n the street

We loved, loved, loved meeting Kate and her husband Peter. Two hours flew by so fast, but we covered a decent territory, Kate took us to some unique places. She was so personable and fun, spontaneous and open to a couple of ideas that we thought of during the photo session (one was to take a picture with a cat that we found roaming the streets). The whole time we laughed and felt like we knew these guys for a long time. They can put anybody at ease.

We had a fabulous experience with Kat! She was great to work with from the start! It was a highlight of our trip! Wonderful to work with! Very skilled in her craft! Fun! I was really impressed how she tailored the experience for us! It was an absolutely wonderful experience on every level and I would highly recommend her to anyone!!! I can’t wait to do it again next time we are in Iceland!!!

Kate was so welcoming and friendly. She spent extra time with me, showed me around town, and did more work than required. We even had dinner with her and her husband and had great conversation. I highly recommend it!

Kat is amazing!!!! Passionate about art and photography, the city and people, she’s talented and captured so many great moments through her lens. She made my last day in Reykjavik feel very special.

Kate was wonderful and hospitible in every way. She took the time to get to know me and what my feel for this shoot would be. Some photographers make you feel awkward and give no direction or insight to what they do. Kate was the complete opposite. We talked the whole time which made me relax and really enjoy the experience. I cannot recommend this enough, it truly is an experience that cannot be duplicated anywhere else.

We had a great time with Kate and the photos turned out amazing. Kate was super fun to be around and she made us feel super comfortable. I am the opposite of a model, but had a blast during the photoshoot. What a way to explore the harbour of Reykjavik. Would recommend this to anyone, thanks Kate!

best friends sitting together and laughing

Kate was literally AMAZING! She took my best friend and I, and another stranger who felt like a friend by the end as well to places we would never go. She was supposed to be with us 1-2 hours… well it ended up being 4, I don’t think any of us even noticed. It felt like we were hanging out with a long time friend… our only regret is that she was leaving town the next day so we couldn’t hang out with her again. Definitely great to do if you are solo, with a friend, significant other… definitely will remember forever.

It was a great pleasure shooting with Kate today. I had to ask Kate to delay our session due to an emergency. She was very accommodating and flexible. Her passion for photography shined through. The shoot was much better than I planned for. Kate showed me a sneak peek of the pictures and they were amazing. I couldn’t wait to see the edited/final pictures. Highly recommended Kate to other travelers or anyone who want their portraits taken while in Reyjkavik!

This was a pretty neat experience. Kate made me feel at home and relaxed. She was very thoughtful and brought extra snacks and coffee during the shoot. She is a very kind hearted person and fun to be around thank you for the experience.

I had a photo shoot with Kat which was tailored for my needs. We were supposed to do the city walk but it started raining and Kat improvised. She took me to HARPA which is a beautiful place to shoot along with other locations. She knew her angles, knowledge with positions, poses and colors. I truly enjoyed my session with her. After that, we had a meal together and we have stayed in touch. It’s a must do if you are in Iceland.

I appreciated Kate for asking me what I wanted out of the shoot to make sure I got a personalized style to my photos. She was friendly and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire shoot. Even though the weather wasn’t perfect, it didn’t seem to bother her and we worked with it.

Kat was a blast to spend time with, never felt rushed at all!! She gave me lots of information and tips about reykjavík and iceland as a whole. She really spent time getting to know me, rather than taking the pics and being done. Can’t wait to receive the pics!!

I had a session with Kat while I was traveling alone in Reykjavik and finding it hard to get the photos I wanted by myself. She was lovely and the whole experience was really pleasant! I felt very comfortable with Kat’s guidance and loved that she showed me the shots as she was taking them. Very happy I reached out to her!

This is a must for any tourist seeking high quality pictures during your stay. Kat is amazing behind the camera and took some wonderful shots. Not only that she was extremely friendly and I instantly felt comfortable with her. She worked with me until I was satisfied and made this much more enjoyable than I was expecting. She was also very knowledgeable on the area. I love the photos and so do many others who saw them. Highly recommend because what she captures with her camera you cannot with a phone. I mean magazine quality photos!

Thanks so much Kat for an awesome photoshoot! I came to the photoshoot with hats I’d made and was really satisfied with the photos Kat took of me wearing my hats. It’s a wonderful personal souvenir of Reykjavik and also great for my millinery portfolio. Well recommended!

Make sure you get great photos and time when you ask her. She takes a picture suitable for your Instagram image. I strongly recommend that you ask her for a photo! She is very kind and fun to be with.

This snap and stroll with Kat was a great end to my trip in Iceland! Kat tailors your experience to the type of photos you are looking for. I wanted very casual shots, and she made me feel very relaxed even as she was taking photos, we simply continued to talk. It was very lowkey and fun.
