That could be laughing your butts off over drinks at your first date spot, snuggling in close on your couch at home, or adventuring around your favorite national park -
so that when you see your final photos you'll think,
'Wow, these are so us.'
It’s of utmost importance that you find the photographer who connects with you and is able to capture you as authentically as possible.
When you look back on your photos, you want them to look like YOU - not like somebody else you saw while scrolling through Instagram.
Think about that for a moment… From the time you start getting ready, to your most intimate moments with your partner, to partying it up! That honor is generally reserved for your bridal party and family… The people who mean the absolute most to you. This is just another reason why I can’t stress it enough - your photographer should be the only other person you’d want third-wheeling with you on the biggest day of your life, in addition to your closest friends and fam!
Yes this is my business, but it's also my heart & soul, and it’s also genuine love & excitement for my couples. I have yet to NOT cry while shooting a couple's wedding day. Capturing love, in all of it’s stages, sets my soul on fire, and hurts my cheeks from smiling. I strive to make my couples feel as comfortable and authentically themselves as possible... I love my couples like I love my high school best friends and their now-signifiant others. I am over-the-moon excited to be a part of the planning process and celebrating their big day. I will hug you every time I see you and ask you how you’re feeling. I have no interest in being just another vendor the day-of. I want to feel like a friend you are catching up with or running ideas by throughout the entire process.
And believe me when I say -
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
Everyone feels this way, and most couples tell me how uncomfortable they are even thinking about being in front of the camera. I encourage you to always show up as you are to ensure you’re comfortable and we capture the REAL you. If you wear crewneck sweatshirts and jeans every day, and that's what you want to wear to your session - First of all, hey girl, SAME. And second of all (and more importantly) - wear that! If you want to feel like a glam couple, spice it up with some fancy attire! There is no right or wrong way to do you, and I fully encourage you to do whatever it is that is authentically you. That, combined with a photographer you’re comfortable with, some direction, and being ready and willing to be a little goofy, and I promise we’ll capture the magic that’s between you two every dang day.
"My fiance and I recently worked with Katherine for our engagement photos. She was not only incredibly fun to work with, she had the best prompts to instantly make us comfortable! It can be tough to get "warmed up" for an engagement shoot. Our in-home session turned out better than I envisioned! She captured our love PERFECTLY (and made our non cute kitchen look cute!). We also did an outdoor session at a lake nearby for sunset. They turned out great! She instantly got us laughing and we had so much fun. Quick turnaround for finished product; it only took a couple days. I highly recommend Katherine to capture your love."
"If you’re looking for a photographer who has an incredible talent in capturing moments authentically, you’ve found her! Katherine photographed our wedding and took our engagement photos, and we are so in love with every image! She does an incredible job capturing emotion, love, and special moments. Not to mention, her energy and love for her photography is so contagious that you enjoy every moment taking pictures with her!"
"My husband and I recently had a couples session with Katherine and couldn't be more happy with her process and how the photos turned out. Katherine took extra time to get to know us before the shoot which made us more comfortable with her and also loosen up with each other! Thanks to Katherine, we were laughing and having a blast within minutes at the shoot. She truly has a gift at capturing candid photos that bring out the best in your love. Would recommend her 100%!"
