Thomas Barr, Vice President of Business Development, Local First Arizona

Kathleen is an incredible photographer to work with. She was punctual, professional, and delivered incredibly high-quality photos for our annual conference. We were impressed by her commitment to edit her first day of photos immediately so we could provide feedback for the 2nd day of our conference. While we didn’t have much to tell her to change as the photos were impressive and just what we needed, we appreciated her hard work and commitment to our event. I highly recommend working with Kathleen as she brings the top level of professionalism to your business needs.

Catherine Shaw, Marketing Director, Northstar Travel Group

Working with Kathleen to capture our 3-day corporate event was a delight. Kathleen took the time to understand our event format, mission and goals. She was professional, timely and communicative, and of course returned quality images! We will certainly be working with her again.

Marco Colbert, Race Director Tucson Bicycle Classic

I'm certainly glad we engaged Kathleen Dreier to photograph the third stage of the 2022 Tucson Bicycle Classic!  Her gallery of photos was wonderful and truly captured the spirit of the event as we requested her to do.  Kathleen's photos depicted bike racers and their families and friends having fun - which is exactly what our event was all about.  Kathleen was great to work with and satisfied the "shot list" that we gave to her.  She delivered the photos promptly after the event, and I know that she spent a lot of time curating the photos after the event.  The proof is in the pudding, I think.  Kathleen's photos of the TBC have already been viewed over 125,000 times!  We are looking forward to working with Kathleen again in 2023!

Lindsay Dreyer, OSA International INC

We were in urgent need of a photographer as ours had canceled at the last minute. We found Kathleen’s number through an acquaintance. She squeezed our event, which started the evening we called her, after having already worked a whole day at a previously booked shoot. With very little guidance, Kathleen went to work. She captured a wonderful variety of images of our conference, including some amazing photo-journalistic shots of the attendees, speakers, and ambiance. We’ll definitely be reaching out for her photography skills again!

The Wayland Group

Kathleen Dreier was an absolute pleasure to work with! She captured so many memories for us during our corporate event; it was like reliving the event over moment by moment when scrolling through the photos. She did not miss an opportunity to capture our team and was an absolute joy to work with. We look forward to when we are able to collaborate with her again.

James Owen, Vice-President, Edison Electric Institute

Kathleen captured the emotions, the authenticity, and the Kathleen’s energy and professionalism made our jobs easier on-site. She is a very talented photographer who engaged well with our group, culminating in some great photos that we have shared our members.

Alissa Blanchard, Watermark Retirement Communities

We were lucky enough to have Kathleen photograph our annual summit this year! She is meticulous and friendly and produced everything we asked for in the highest quality! We will work with her again in the future.

Kylie Walzak, Cyclovia Tucson Event Coordinator, Living Streets Alliance

Kathleen is wonderful to work with. Her rare gift for capturing the emotion and energy of the human spirit makes her work stand out. Kathleen has been one of Cyclovia’s official event photographers since the event started and each year her images tell the beautiful human stories of the day.

Eileen Wittman McLeod, Executive Director, STEP Student Expedition Program

Kathleen Dreier has been an absolute joy to work with. Her professionalism and clear communication upfront is beautifully paired with her warmth and easy going personality in person. We used her to photograph two events so far for our STEP Scholars and we’ll definitely continue to use her services over and over again. She was able to capture the little moments at our events without ever seeming intrusive and wonderfully managed a huge group for the big moments as well. The photos we received have been super well organized and are stunning. I can’t say enough about her! Tucson is so lucky to have her.

James F. Palka, 2011 Pulitzer Prize-nominated event photographer

I consider Kathleen Dreier to be one of the finest event photographers in the whole Tucson area. She was the first person who came to mind when Getty Images asked if I knew another photographer in town with whom to share a commercial assignment.

David Seeber, Marketing Director, Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance

As Marketing Manager for the Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance, I hired Kathleen Dreier to photograph our 9th Annual Salsa, Tequila & Taco Challenge. In the past, we have always struggled to get truly incredible photos from this event due to difficult lighting conditions, weather issues, tight pathways & large crowds. Kathleen went above & beyond to ensure we got more than just the usual event photos, she gave us photos that told a story, felt artistic & intentional, while also feeling like they captured a split second moment that few other photographers would’ve seen. As a photographer myself, I truly appreciate the extra time put into framing & editing in particular. I would strongly recommend her for your next event!

Act One Arizona

Kathleen absolutely knocked it out of the park! She photography a work event for our non-profit organization and the photos are stunning! She was so easy to work with and great at communications! We will work with her again and again!
