Hi, my name is

Katie

Lifestyle

storyteller

One of my favorite parts about being a wedding and lifestyle photographer is the unique opportunity to step into seasons of life. Getting to know my couples (their personalities, their passions, their journey) allows for a personable experience that often develops into sweet friendships even beyond the wedding day!


My hopes and dreams are that your photos will not only be beautiful, but that they will be a reflection of your authentic relationship, they will remind you of how you felt during each part of your day: bursting with emotion, excitement, joy, and happiness.


When you look through your wedding album in 50 years, I want you to feel the love, and remember the sounds of laughter.

I always say I have the best “job” in the world because it has hardly felt like work. Every person I have been able to meet on the other side of my camera has changed me for the better in one way or another, and I hope I can do that for them too.


I want you to be able to show up completely as yourself, with hearts wide open. I want you to feel comfy, be yourself, and be the beautiful person you are. I want you to be able to be free and present on your wedding day, and together we will create endless stories. Let me help you remember it for always. And this is where my heart begins to beat. So before we begin, I’d love to share a bit more about myself to be sure we’ll be a fit!


 

Some Fun Facts!

 

 

  1. I met my husband, Kyle, at a park when I was 17! We dated for eight years, got engaged, and have been married now for over seven!
  2. The best part of our lives these days is our daughter Paityn! She is the greatest gift I have ever received. Yes! She was named after one of my favorite quarterbacks heehee.
  3. We have an adopted cat named Dixie who is 21 years old that we love way too much!
  4. My clients describe me as: having a heart of gold, passionate, and having a hilarious cackle.
  5. I live for a good country song. I like to belt everything out on the dance floor.
  6. I don’t want to live a day without my amazing family (and maybe....a good cup of coffee and chocolate!)
  7. I have a secret obsession with Hallmark Christmas movies heehee!
  8. I love shooting in beautiful light, but so much more I love the couples that this business has brought into my life, and the joy of serving them on one of their sweetest days!

An Everlasting Legacy

A photo isn’t just a physical interaction of light through a lens.

It is an eternal memory and a glimpse into the past.

It's what others will hold onto as they stitch together the pieces of your story


My belief is your session is not just about the ability to take pretty pictures. But, it's the ability to listen, to be a guide, and to develop an emotional connection with each other.


It's ensuring you have a personable experience. It's making you both feel comfy and at home; at the same time making sure everyone else around you feels the same. This is so incredibly important to me.


When the memories fade, and time surpasses. I want you to be able to look back through your gallery and feel like you are reliving your day.


So together let's create an everlasting story and friendship!
