Kate Breuer spent 10 years in business as a professional photographer, working internationally before bringing her business to the United States in 2014, then to New Zealand in 2018. She currently works out of Auckland, New Zealand, where she lives with her husband and dog. Her assistant Kay is located in sunny California. Since its creation, her business has expanded to take on many more clients and offer more services, with the help of her assistants.
Together, we’re a team of dedicated professionals with a variety of interests, hobbies, and areas of expertise. We apply everything we know toward running a modern international business and helping other people run theirs.
Kate is a dream come true. She knows Tave inside and out, and can answer any question you have (no matter how complicated or random!). She is also a master of customer service. I have never worked with someone quite as organized, prompt, and efficient. I was thrilled to work with Kate, and would recommend her without hesitation. If you want a wonderful customer service experience, AND to have your Tave set up perfectly, hire Kate immediately!
Kate & her team are the best at what they do!! Thorough. They don't just execute but when possible offer suggestions based on their experience. Great communication. I definitely refer them to all my friends & anyone.
I had Tave for months and had no idea what I was doing with it. All I knew was that I wanted to make my booking process as efficient as possible. Kate was recommended to me by another photographer. She's efficient and knows everything there is to know about Tave. She makes time to clear any confusion you may have along the way. She's already saved me so many headaches and helped my workflow tremendously when it came to booking weddings and sessions this year. Kate's the best.
Kate was amazing. I thought I could figure out how to set everything up on my own, but that was because I didn’t fully understand how awesome Tave was and all it could do. She was incredibly responsive and helped consult me on the best way to set up the system for my business. She went above and beyond to make sure I understand what I was doing and emailed me back quickly every time I had a question. I would highly recommend not wasting any time and just hiring Kate to set up Tave for you. It’s absolutely worth it.
I just wanted to take a quick moment to share how happy I have been with Kate's work. We are a boutique wedding photography company in the NYC luxury wedding market. Our clients have a high expectation for service and it is always our goal to over deliver on that. We have tried other systems but when we heard about Tave we knew this was the one for us as it would allow for us to present our clients with the professional systems they have come to expect. The thought of migrating a new system, however, was daunting and scary. Kate made this SO easy! She knew exactly what needed to get done and did an amazing job detailing all of the steps necessary to make it happen. She was incredibly efficient with our time and her attention to detail was fantastic. If anyone is seeking to migrate to this new system and thinks that the process of doing so is too much - talk to Kate. Her expertise in this area is amazing. She will have your back and make sure you are happy with the end result. I would strongly recommend Kate to anyone seeking help with their migration to Tave!
Tave is undoubtedly a powerful and highly customizable system. I thought I could set it up on my own. However, after watching a few online tutorial videos and letting my account siting idle for a couple of months, I knew I needed some help. I am really thankful that I found Kate. She made this overwhelming set-up process a really simple one. She listened to what I was hoping to achieve and offered her insights on how to streamline my workflow even further. It was a pleasure working with Kate throughout the process. She is kind and genuinely wants to do what’s best for her clients.
Kate was amazing setting up my Tave for me - she has a great process that walks you through all the information you need to provide her with to get your system up and running, and then she just does it, and it's awesome! She's also really great at explaining how the system works, and she's very responsive to requests for further information and questions. All in all, I highly recommend her to anyone looking to hire someone to set up Tave for them
I wanted to use Tave but felt overwhelmed by how to set it up. Without Kate, there is absolutely no way I could set it on my own without getting frustrated and confused. She did my branding, invoices, contracts etc in a timely manner and she stayed within my minimal budget which is a feat in and of itself. Kate is highly skilled and communicates with you every step of the way which I really appreciate. I came in knowing very little about the Tave system and with the help of Kate I have a fully functioning system. It feels great to know that I can go to Kate at any time with further questions. I highly recommend Kate. She will make your Tave setup easy!
I researched several studio management systems before deciding on Tave. Once I got into the nitty gritty of setup, though, I knew that it would be a time suck for me and looked to outside help to handle it for us. Kate's name was given to us by Tave. After a brief conversation, I knew she was the best consultant for us. She was extremely helpful and very thorough with the process, even working directly with Tave when some of our workflow didn't fit the "norm." We so appreciate her professionalism, response time and easy to work with style.
Working with Kate has been a lifesaver. We have been using TAVE for over 4 years and with all the recent changes in the last two years, we were unable to keep up with all of the changes. Then we found Kate who was able to do a complete walk-through of our already set-up TAVE system and show us where we could improve, what we could fix, and what we could use to help streamline our business and make it more efficient. Kate is timely, efficient, and all around amazing to work with. We felt so comfortable with her and she goes above an beyond in everything we've asked her to do. We can't say enough and already have begun referring her to other photographers to use, (though, we're sort of hoping we could keep her in our back pocket as our own best kept secret!).
Kate was absolutely amazing to work with. Tave is a seriously powerful system with a lot of customization options and I didn’t know where to begin. I told Kate everything that I wanted to be able to do and she quickly set it up for me. I even requested customizing the design of the invoice — which was believed by the Tave support team to be impossible — but Kate found a way to do it. Incredible! We had two Skype calls on which Kate showed me how things worked and how I could add customizations myself in the future. Her Tave setup service was invaluable! Kate is kind, patient, and, most importantly, one smart cookie!
Kate is a scientist in the making pursuing her dream of studying things too small to see. She's currently in the market for a secret laboratory.
