The two biggest things I give every couple: creative photos, and an easy experience. I put all of my energy into making these things happen. Making sure you that you have an awesome time and aren’t worrying about the photos is the most important thing.

And I’m definitely not going to give you the boring, cheesy wedding photos. I don't like to follow all the wedding rules, and neither do my couples. That's why I’m always looking for the little interactions, cool light, funny expressions–the things that make your wedding original. Photos of the two of you will look natural and real, because I’ll help you feel like you’re pretty much just hanging out together.

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, without the wedding-y formality. I know it’s hard to find a photographer who understands you and who gets that you don’t want the typical 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 MADE US FEEL SO AT EASE, IT WAS LIKE WE WERE TALKING TO A GOOD FRIEND...WE’D RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE NOT LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO DOCUMENT THEIR SPECIAL DAY, BUT CREATE WORKS OF ART YOU CAN TREASURE THE REST OF YOUR LIVES.”

Vicky + Anjuli

"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...

Liz + Roland

" 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!"
