They were on time and, most importantly, the pictures and video came out great and Kathy was easy to deal with. Our only quibble was that the DJ told us that turning on the lights in the hall for better photos prior to the end of the evening event led guests to believe that party was over and so it ended earlier than expected.

Research Analyst at Center for Naval Analyses (former colleague)

One of the joys of being part of the inaugural class of photographers at Lorton’s Photography Workshop was getting to know a group of enormously talented artists. Having seen Kathy’s work ethic and creative energy – and art – first hand, I can vouch for the fact that anyone who hires her is getting the services of a profoundly gifted artist indeed (with equal talents as a photographer and as a graphics designer); that she’s such a nice person is just an added bonus!

Deborah Campbell

Development Director (former), American Red Cross

Thank you for all you did to make the Prince William American Red Cross 2008 “Red White & Blues” gala a success by every measure. In particular, I am grateful for all the wonderful photos you took for the event and all the graphic design work you produced with the patience of a saint.

Rebecca Barnes

President, Prince William Living

They are wonderful to work with. ImageWerks is very creative, making every project important and capturing something unique! They have an eye for “it” whether in Kathy’s photos, GC’s illustrations, logos or websites. You cannot go wrong working with ImageWerks!

Kathy is one of the most professional women I know. She is extremely creative and gives her all. Her photography skills are superb. What I like best about Kathy? She’s a huge part of the community she lives in. She gives of her time and talents to several non-profits.

Kinsey Denney

Photography student that took one of our classes

Doing this photography class outside of school allowed me to deal with the stress and explore something I otherwise would not have been able to do. I learned the basics of Photoshop and editing, but more importantly, I got feedback from my fellow participants and my photography has improved. Because of this class, I have considered doing the art show in the spring. I have grown as an artist and found that photography is a de-stressor for me. I plan to keep up this hobby/activity for the rest of my life.

Emily Guerrero

Director of Communications (former), Prince William Chamber of Commerce & now Mightier Than (client)

Kathy has provided photography services for our directory and many of our “signature” events, as well as worked with us on designing various collateral. She also did a series of PWC shots that we display in our offices. Kathy has a great perspective, and a way of finding beauty even in the mundane, so that her photographs help you to look at things in a new way.

Barbara Yale

Deputy Country Program Officer, Chemonics

Kathy is a professional in every sense of the word. I have worked with her both on projects for the World Bank and with Imagewerks. She has an eye for detail and design. The products she produces are always of top quality. And the wonderful creative energy and ideas that she brings to the table make her a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Kathy both as a colleague and a business partner.

I am amazed at the portrait. GC did a phenominal job. I love, Love, LOVE IT!!! I remember when you took that picture at the chamber when I became chairman in 2009! I forogt I was having my picture done that day but you made me look pretty darn good! (Note: Kathy did her professional headshot & GC painted her portrait from this photo)

This was my Dad’s 90th birthday party. I’d guess 150 or more people came in a 2 hour period to see him. Kathy did a great job. I had no idea having a good photographer would take the party to the next level. Someone could be a great photographer and have great equipment, but if you can’t work with people to make the shots happen then it’s all for nothing. Kathy did great at all of that and this is why people were lined up to take a picture with my Dad like they were waiting to see Santa Claus. Lot’s of fun!



Kathy from ImageWerks took the photos for our rehearsal dinner and the big day. She was responsive throughout the process, and helped us to think about the types of photos we wanted to take ahead of time to make sure everything was captured on the big day (which was such a whirlwind, we never would have thought of what we needed day-of). The pictures themselves were beautiful, showing all that went into our wedding. We can now look back at them and relive the memories created with our family and friends, thanks to Kathy’s great eye for details. I’d highly recommend her services.

Kathy Strauss did an absolutely beautiful job for our wedding. There were a couple of photos that needed some photoshop work done. When the work was done, I would never know that the “unwanted” individual had ever been in the photo! Her attitude is fun and unobtrusive and Kathy is very artistic! I’m happy to give her a 5* rating -Trish



Kathy and Sally took wonderful pictures and were very nice to work with- very down to earth and made sure that we got all of the pictures we wanted. They provided a great selection of quality pictures.
