I maintain a sure balance between candid images and posed frames, something I’ll always be keen to capture. After all, your wedding is a culmination of events — a celebration — I want to capture it for what it is, while providing any guidance you need to receive the traditional framed photographs.
Your photographer undeniably influences the atmosphere of your event, so I seek to bring a presence that contributes to comfort and ease. Sharing straightforward timelines so nothing is lost, aware of how others feel around me, in tune with your feelings without wearing any emotions (other than kindness) on my sleeve.
A timeless editing style and fine art twist — this is what each image is styled after, taken with the thoughtful framing film requires. While every setting and pace is not fitting for film, each photograph is taken with an aesthetic designed after the classic coloring of film, with true film images taken when the moment is conducive to that medium.
"Kate was the best decision we made for our wedding. She was so easy to work with and handled all of our questions leading up to the big day (2 years of planning). She was so calm and fun to work with on wedding day, making us feel comfortable and excited. She is professional, kind, and incredibly talented. She is also super responsive and works very quickly. Kate and her assistant, Adrienne, were truly a pleasure to work with and she even sent over sneak peek photos less than 2 weeks after wedding day!!"
The one thing that adds compelling emotion and originality to my work is the fact that no two couples, stories or events are the same. With this notion in mind, please inquire so that I may put together a custom proposal for your event, taking into consideration the hours, number of photographers and other coverage that you might need — in addition to the overall feelings and the story you hope to document.
For dates that are already booked, or for alternative budgets that need to be accommodated, I trust no one other than my associate team to step into your event as I would. Having worked together and with phenomenal talent in posing and directing, Adrienne or Ellen will be your photographer, and I will be your resource along the way.

The Lord blessed her with so many talents; the biggest one being wedding photography. Kate is the most professional, intentional, flexible, kind, funny, relaxing, caring person I have ever met. She made my husband feel comfortable posing, and put him at ease during emotional times during our day! She truly knows how to capture the love you have, and I wouldn’t have wanted to ‘hang out’ with anyone else on the wedding day!
"She is a ray of sunshine on your special day, and a calming presence..."
Kate was absolutely wonderful! First, our engagement pictures were fabulous. It was so fun for us to get to know one another and my husband really appreciated her guidance and sense of humor. Fast forward to our wedding day and every detail was captured so beautifully.
"Definitely a 10/10 from start to finish and every detail in between..."
She makes you feel so comfortable and confident in front of the camera. She is so kind, flexible, responsible, creative, talented, and just so on top of things! I will never be able to choose my favorites out of my wedding pictures (or engagement pictures) because they are just that good thanks to Kate. Her photography and editing skills are so amazing.
"Kate was truly one of the biggest blessings during our engagement and wedding season..."
Of course, there’s my second favorite part (after the creative direction from the wedding itself), sharing the final and classic work that will last through the years.
On the day of, we’ll pose as needed and step back when the moment is beautiful on its own — in sync with the emotions and the plans that have been put in place.
Leading up to the wedding, I’ll check in periodically and will customize a timeline so my team and I will know exactly when and where we need to be.
If my team and I are the “something blue” to your wedding, then confirm the date(s) with an online contract and retainer payment.
With the hours of coverage clear, and an understanding of your vision, I’ll send over a tailored quote for you to review.
Simply say hello! Tell me a few essential details on the contact page, and we’ll fill in the rest on a phone call once I’ve confirmed that your date is still available. You’ll also receive a full pricing guide before we talk.
This answer is twofold — how you feel, and how those emotions translate into the resulting photographs. I want you to feel completely at ease, so that I can capture the honest emotions with beautiful photographs. I never want to take a gorgeous image that, when you look at it, doesn’t feel true to you. Instead, I want even strangers to get goosebumps because the emotions are so palpable.
To me, it’s not necessarily the fact that it’s a country club or a gorgeous estate, it’s the intimacy that brings a wow factor. When couples take the time to add their personality, to think through the details and focus on spending time together — that is what I adore. When you make it more about how the moment will feel, the photographs will show those feelings too. This could take place with 150 people, or a hushingly small ceremony with just 15 guests.
Head to the contact page so I can answer that question directly, but if I haven’t, I typically will visit the venue on a separate day or arrive early to pin down the details and visualize the best settings for photographs.
