HI, I’M KATY

Since discovering the world through my first lens at three years old, I’ve always loved capturing memories through photography. My mission is to capture the unique love story of my couples while making them feel even more confident and beautiful on their big day. I capture their raw emotion, laughter, and authenticity using my fine art background and distinctly vibrant and expressive style. It’s an honor to be a part of your day, and it fills my heart with every click.

In my spare time you’ll find me at home in Minneapolis, MN, thrift shopping, attempting crossword puzzles, and learning new skills. Otherwise, you'll catch me out in nature or on the road traveling and exploring new places with my long-term partner, Dakota!

A little about me

Learn about my Philosophy and what inspired me to Photograph love

Photography seems to run through my blood and has always come naturally. I'd actually say my camera is an extension of my hand (is that weird?) haha! It's truly what I love and I'm so incredibly grateful to call this my job!

Each session, couple, and wedding is unique and I love using the power of photography to capture all the personal qualities from each. My passion is to capture REAL emotions, laughter, the little moments, and your love! You just need to be you!

There are few things that inspire and excite me more than photography!

I’ve been taking photos since I was three years old (for real!) and I’ve always loved capturing the feelings and experiences around me. My earliest photos were taken with a kids film camera of things like my reflection in the glass door, the big orange tree in the backyard, or my dinosaur toys set up outside like the "Land Before Time" (great movie, right?!). Fast forward to now and I have a BFA degree in Photography and my own photography business!

There is so much going on in the world around us at any one time that it can overload the senses…colors, sounds, light, and even feelings or interactions. I love the challenge of skillfully preserving these moments in time.

I go beyond the typical photographs to capture the intimate feeling and quality of the moment. Is there an especially emotional or silly moment that needs to be captured? I will see it. I am inspired by what is unique in everyone and every situation, and I'm eager to bring a creative approach and style to every session. My desire is to give you photographs that bring you laughter, love, and joy!

Every wedding, every shoot, I see the world through a whole new lens. Your story will be different from the last, and this ignites my passion all over again.

Each wedding and elopement is as unique as the couple. Leading up to the big day, I’ll get to know you more and be part of the planning process. Is there something important to you about the location you want captured? Who are your special people? What says “we’re a couple”?

I help you every step of the way to create a personalize game plan so your day runs smoothly. I make room for all of those moments that you want captured and leave space for the unexpected. I’m there for you every step of the way. Whether you need someone to help hold your dress while we hike, or you want me to find that missing groomsman, I’m your gal. 

I capture the candid moments that make your day special and real. I want you to be able to look back at these photos and remember the feelings, connections, and funny moments of the day. I can be the fly on the wall, or the friend at the dinner table. Whatever you need, I gotchu. No day is the same. Take it all in and just enjoy it! I’ll handle the rest.

Rain, hail, or shine, I won’t miss a beat

» Traveling!
I've been to 11 countries and 28 states. I love to explore new places and experience different cultures! My goal is to visit all the states and visit over 50 countries in my lifetime! Going down under to Australia is my top pick.

» Coffee or Tea?
Definitely a tea person! I still cherish the jar of Whittard Strawberry Serenade tea (my fav of all time) that I bought in London in 2016 because I don't want to run out of it! Still tastes amazing, I promise. I also love a good dirty chai!

» TV Shows and Podcasts!
Some of my fav shows are 800 Words, Offspring, New Girl, Schitt's Creek,  Doctor Who, Stargate SG1, Heartland, Modern Family, Game of Thrones, and Outlander. I'm all over the place, I know!
My fav podcasts are And That's Why We Drink, Dark History, and The Simple Sophisticate, which I love to put on while I edit photos!

» Animals!
I've always been super connected to animals and I've had many different kinds in my life! Cats and horses have a special place in my heart. Got a furry family member you want to bring to your sesh? I'm all for it!


These are a few of my favorite things!
