Hi, I'm Kathy!  I'm not afraid to make a fool out of myself, especially if it can make you laugh and feel comfortable. I want to capture YOU in your photos...loving on each other. I love couples who love hard and who think outside the box, that want to do something different for their wedding day, who aren't afraid of a little adventure. My goal is to travel more for weddings, to capture what the world has to offer. I have been doing photography for about 7 years and I wouldn't have it any other way. I don't want to only be your vendor, I want to be there to help throughout the process, make your day the best it can be, and go out for coffee even after the wedding is over. Shoot me an email if want to learn more or to just say hi. I'd love to hear from you!

Let's be honest, when your wedding is all said and done, what do you have left to remember memories from one of the most important days in your lives? Making an investment is not only about the photographs, but it's so much more than that. It's about the experience you have with me, it's supposed to be FUN, I want to educate you and make your wedding the best it can be. It's extremely important to choose someone you TRUST, whose style you LOVE and who has a personality that you vibe with. It's always a plus when we can remain friends after your wedding, or I can capture more important events in your life...like KIDS(ok I won't get ahead of myself, I know you're not even married yet ;)). Chemistry with my clients is huge, I am the vendor  you're with most on your wedding day. I love couples who love HARD, that show affection, that think outside the box, that do things a little different or non-traditional. Also who see what the wedding day is all about, the two of them and their love for each other, not a bunch of pinterest photos that AREN'T THEM. Every wedding is unique,  your personal touches and when you trust me 100%, that lets you just ENJOY your day and have the time of your life, that's when I create those magic, authentic photos. If this is you, I think we would be a great fit and make some killer images and memories for your big day.

Thank You

We will be in touch with you shortly!

Emily + Jacob

We are so blown away by the moments you captured for our special day. We cannot thank you enough for being a part of our wedding and the seriously amazing job you did. I honestly think you and your service are the best investment we made for the wedding! We just keep looking at the pictures over and over, reliving every moment! So, thank you so so so so much. Seriously! 

Emily + Mitch

We spent a very long time trying to find the perfect photographer. We wanted someone who we felt comfortable with, matched our style(lots and lots of natural light), and above all we trusted to capture everything about our big day. When we met Kathy the first time, we knew we had found the right person. She is so incredibly talented and made us laugh at all her corny jokes. She powered through all the weather challenges of the day...cold, rain and crazy winds. 
I was nervous to look at the photos because I remember the day so vividly and wanted the images to match that. When we saw the photographs, they were perfect. She so accurately captured our beautiful friends and family, all the emotions of the day, and the love Mitch and I have for each other! 
Even as I write this I am getting teary eyed just thinking that years and years from now when the memories start to fade, we'll have these beautiful photographs to remember the most perfect day."

Stephanie + Adam

I just wanted to let you know that our wedding pictures are absolutely amazing!!!! Adam and I decided at first that we did not want a videographer because we likely would never watch our wedding video enough to justify spending that much money on a videographer. When the day came closer I think we both started to question that decision but it was already too late. However, it turns out that we made the right decision after all because your pictures did such an amazing job of capturing all the key moments of our wedding it doesn’t feel like we’re missing anything. The day goes by so quickly that we missed some of the details, but your pictures captured everything, even some of the little things we missed, on our day! It’s hard to put into words how grateful we are, you took the most special day of our life and captured it in perfect pictures that we get to enjoy for the rest of our lives. Thank you so so much!

Megan + Abe

I just opened your package, looked at the printed out pics, sobbed my eyes out, and am now just plugging in my USB. I just had to send you a note right away to tell you how amazing you are & how much I appreciate every single thing you did for us! From our engagement pics to the very final touches (and for pumping our pics out in under 2 weeks while preparing to get married yourself!). You are seriously an incredible human and I'm so happy to have found you!! Off to look at all the pics now & I'm sure I'll be sending you another message about how much I love all them as well!!

Angie + Chad

Kathy, words cannot describe how happy we are that we chose you to be our photographer on the best day of our lives! When planning the wedding we decided we did not want to hire a professional videographer, so we knew we MUST get a top notch photographer to capture our memories, and you went above and beyond :) we are in love with the photos you took and I cannot stop looking at them! Not only did you take amazing, natural, candid photos that captured the emotion of the day, but you are also such a lovely person!! I felt like we clicked with you right away and you made us feel more like friends than clients and I so appreciate that! I told chad that whenever we decide to start a family (other than our dog, who is for sure family) we will be calling you again!!
