I have lived in the beautiful state of Ohio for seven years. I'm an animal lover (I have 2 dogs and 3 cats!) When I’m not working, you can find me traveling, exploring, hiking, trying new foods, visiting breweries or wineries, all with my husband.
I’m obsessed with traveling, sunsets, music, and lavender lattes.
Taking a photo is forcing time to stand still. Everything in that one moment - frozen for all eternity. The love, the laughs, the excitement, and the memories. It’s all about the experiences we never want to forget. This is why I chose photography. I get to work with people on the best day of their lives!
Capturing Your Love As It Unfolds
Jade & Austin
“I can not say enough on what a great experience it was working with Kate! She goes above and beyond in the whole process. She was key in putting together our timeline, her communication is on point! and she really makes you feel catered to! 100% worth the package and thats before the beautiful photos!!! - they speak for themselves ;P”
Katlin & Michael
“If you're looking for an amazing photographer- look no further! You've found her! From the first phone call we had with Kate we immediately felt comfortable. She eased all of our concerns and answered all of our questions, with how the planning was typically done, what the timeline typically consists of in regards to photography, what to do when the timeline may not go as planned. As a couple we had never had professional pictures taken, so comfortability was extremely important to us when it came to finding a photographer since we didn't really know what to expect. We wanted to feel comfortable behind the camera and she made it happen. Working with Kate was the BEST decision we have ever made.”
Kaitlyn & Anthony
“Kate was hand down the best photographer we could of asked for, her personality is so positive and comforting I felt so comfortable being around her. The photos she takes are immaculate, very crisp and clean. She captured the day so well and when I look back it's like I'm living it all over again! I had a few guests at the wedding say how wonderful she was too!”
Tamika & Matt
“There are so many great qualities about Kate! She is a fantastic communicator, very responsive, extremely organized, so friendly, and of course takes beautiful photos! After viewing her portfolio online and after the first call we had with Kate, we knew she was the photographer for us. Working with Kate made the wedding planning process go so smoothly. In addition to providing photo details and timeline suggestions, she was a great reference for literally any wedding related questions. She was one of the most reliable and professional individuals I had met!”
Janja & Chris
“If we could give 100 stars we would! We stumbled upon Kate’s Instagram well before our wedding date, and we both knew we HAD to have her as our photographer. She is super down to earth, engaging, easy to talk to and pose in front of, reliable, knowledgeable and so much more! She did our engagement pictures as well as our wedding photos. She is super timely and always asks for your input/style/what have you. She truly takes the time to get to know her couples before she jumps into action with her camera. She even helped us with our wedding timeline, making sure our big day was perfect. She is honestly the sweetest soul, and looks out for her brides! We are impressed, pleased, and so thankful to have her talent to look back on for years to come.”
Jenni & Jake
“Spectacular! Hiring Kate to photograph one of the best days of your life is one of the best decisions you could make. So many people have commented on how beautiful our engagement and wedding photos are. Kate’s ability to capture all of the love is truly one of a kind and I can’t say enough nice things about her or the experience of working with her. Not only is the output spectacular, but working with her was absolutely seamless and organized. You will be so thankful for the magical photos taken by Kate that will provide you an absolute lifetime of joy!!”
Nicole & Steven
“5 stars!!!! Kate is amazing, talented, kind, and knowledgeable! She did our engagement session and wedding and was a support line throughout the wedding planning process. I’m in love with all our pictures and am so happy to have her by our sides throughout this whole process. She was down for all my ideas and made my picture dreams a reality! She comes very highly recommended from me!”
For the joyful lovers that adore one another, you’ll find that I take the time to understand the unique story of how you met, the fun, special details you have thought through, and the friend that you can reach out to anytime.
I’ll be there by your side to photograph every smile, laugh, tear and everything in between you didn’t even know were happening.
Illustrate the Extraordinary
Vibrant. Bright. Colorful. Authentic.
A good wedding vendor should be able to answer your questions. Don’t be shy, or feel silly, if you have something you’re curious about and not sure how it works. I love talking to my couples about anything wedding, so ask away!
Like the weather! We can still get amazing photos whether it’s raining, snowing, windy, or bright sunshine. Enjoy the moments on your wedding day because you are marrying your best friend!
Don’t worry about things you can’t control
Each bridesmaid and groomsman should be someone that is willing to go the extra mile for you. I’ve seen couples who feel pressured to have people in their party and then sometimes emotions and other issues get in the way. But, I’ve also seen parties that show the best spirit, love, and admiration for couples. Get those people as they will make your day run so smoothly!
Find a bridal party that gets you
The lighting can matter more than the scenery! I’m happy to consult with couples on their venues, photo spots, and getting ready locations. Good light is so critical to getting those photos that “pop!” Fortunately, I specialize in various lighting scenarios!
Think about wedding day locations
Finding a wedding photographer is tough! Remember, your wedding day photos will last a lifetime, along with your marriage. Set your budget and think about what style you like – most photographers have an editing style (mine is light and colorful!) Consider their quality of work, their approach to photography, and personality.
Not sure what you're looking for?
So many couples tell me they’re nervous about getting their photos taken. While you might feel awkward, trust me, we can get great photos! That’s also why it’s so important to find a photographer who is great at making couples feel comfortable in front of the camera (aka me!)
It's ok to be nervous
Wedding planning can be stressful and can feel like a lot! But take the time to have fun with it! Turn vendor meetings into date nights and enjoy it – it goes by fast!
Advice for Couples
Prioritize your vision while at the same time creating a day that is comfortable for your guests. I work with couples to define exactly what that means for you. Don’t stress over the many people who have their own vision for what you should do. We’ll build a timeline that fits what the two of you need.
Don’t put a lot of pressure on yourselves
