MORE THAN "JUST WEDDING PHOTOS"

The two biggest things I give every couple: unconventional, non cookie-cutter photos, and a calm, personal experience. I shoot candidly for most of the day, so you'll actually get to have fun at your own wedding. And I get to know you and help you feel comfortable in front of the camera so that your photos are tailored to your unique personalities.

With a background in studio art, film studies and theater, I create in a way that balances real emotion with artistic composition. When you choose me, you're getting an art photographer, but you're also getting the assurance of someone with seven years of experience photographing weddings. If you like the idea of photos that are about emotion, joy, humor, and the most important people in your lives, we're probably going to get along.

MORE THAN "JUST WEDDING PHOTOS" 

The two biggest things I give every couple: unconventional, non cookie-cutter photos, and a personalized experience. I shoot candidly for most of the day, so you'll actually get to have fun at your own wedding. I get to know you and help you feel comfortable in front of the camera so that your photos are tailored to your unique personalities–not the other way around. And I'm guessing you think you're awkward in front of the camera–most couples do, so that's why I keep portraits very chill. I've been told I have a calm presence, which is handy on a day that's often super high-energy.

NON-AWKWARD PORTRAITS
PHOTOS ALWAYS EDITED BY ME

Oh, Hello.
i didn't see you there*

I can always feel when it clicks with a couple. We get on the phone and just keep going “YES! RIGHT!” Or we veer off on an hour-long tangent about Star Trek, recipes, or graphic novels. The best thing I ever hear from my couples is that talking to me is a relief. That it’s nice to just have a conversation and be listened to like a friend. I know it’s hard to find a photographer who understands you and who gets that you don’t want cheesy wedding photos, and I want to make that all easier for you.

GEt to know me

*Can you picture me saying this while sitting in a big armchair in front of a fireplace? In a library? That’s what I was going for. 

“(KATHLEEN) Captures an organic magic that most wedding photographers miss... She was so good at blending into the crowd and candidly capturing moments that we didn’t even notice she was there half of the time.”

"Never once did we feel "staged" or set up. Kathleen would find an amazing location, and then somehow, with her quiet, sweet photo magic, make us feel like it was just the two of us and we weren't in front of a camera. Our wedding day came along with some hiccups and stressful moments, but Kathleen was always there, so kind and calm, to bring us back to the moment and remind us of why we were there, to celebrate. Booking Kathleen was one of the best decision we made for our wedding and I can't thank her enough for making our day one we will never forget...

" Every single one of my photos is more beautiful than the last. Each one, capturing a moment or emotion that perfectly described my guests, my husband or me. Let Kathleen create the story of your wedding through her art and I promise, there will be nothing else like it."

“My husband and I did not want traditional wedding photos, and after looking through Kathleen's portfolio I knew she understood what that meant. Every single one of my photos is more beautiful than the last. Each one, capturing a moment or emotion that perfectly described my guests, my husband or me. Let Kathleen create the story of your wedding through her art and I promise, there will be nothing else like it. Thank you Kathleen for your beautiful spirit, and thank you for sharing a little bit of it with us!” 

 Cory + Garren

“Yes, she captured the most gloriously stunning photos... But the reasons we adore her are mostly how steady, calm, and thoughtful she was from the moment we met to the day of the wedding and all the days since. That has been such a gift. Plus, she’s just a delightful human being.”

Casey + Grant

“It was so wonderful to be able to have total confidence in our photographer and not have to worry about a thing... I would recommend Kathleen to literally anyone and everyone, I will shout it from the rooftops if I have to. Thank you Kathleen!”

Caitlin + Ryan

“From the moment we showed up and introduced ourselves, Kathleen (and her second shooter) made it clear that we would be working as a team... they communicated with us and respected our shots as much as their own. This resulted in the most laid back day ever for our clients and for us!"
