I’m so excited to share these love stories with you, and can’t wait to share yours. Creating epic and breathtaking images from one of the most memorable days of your life is my passion, because it’s true: you have a love like no other. Whether you are getting married, want to celebrate your engagement, or want a cute sesh with your partner-in-crime, you’ve come to the right place for unique photos that tell your love story.
I capture photos that show what your love FEELS like. I tell your story through the intimate and in-between moments, the way you look at each other, and the environment around you. I’m the professional third-wheel capturing the silly faces you make at each other, or that look when they touch your cheek. Expect that when you look back at these moments for years to come, you’ll recognize that same smile that’s still just for them. I can’t wait to guide you through our session as you bring out the best in each other!
Are you nervous in front of the camera? Not to worry! I promise we won't be posing like those awkward prom photos from high school (bleh!). I will give you directions the whole time, so it feels natural and, most importantly, FUN! I’m there to capture all the crazy, spontaneous, laughable, intimate, emotional, and exciting moments of the day. Some of my favs are the in-between moments, or the moments where you might feel you're messing it up. But guess what? There is no right or wrong. This is just you and your partner being yourselves. Each love is unique! Your only job is to focus on each other. Let me do the rest!
A friend of ours showed us their wedding photos and we were so touched to see the raw beauty and emotions of the day in their photos. We were determined to hire her even if she was out of state and we weren't disappointed! Katy is communicative, organized and timely and during the wedding process it is SO nice to have a vendor that supported us every step of the way and helped to keep our timeline smooth. Katy will remember even the smallest details of your relationship and reflect that in your wedding photos. She always went the extra mile and our photos were absolutely perfect!
A free consultation for you to get a feel for what it'll be like working together. We'll chat about your dreams and visions, and how we can make it all work.
Yay! We'll finalize your retainer and sign the dotted lines to secure your booking. You'll complete a questionnaire that'll help me to get the next steps organized.
From scouting shoot locations to finessing your timeline, we'll keep in touch throughout your wedding planning. I'm always just an email away.
I'll show up excited and ready to shoot your day - without missing a beat. I will be on all day watching out for every special moment so that you can simply enjoy the day!
Let's relive your big day all over again! I know you can't wait so I'll send you a sneak peek gallery within 72 hours after your wedding.
Grab some wine and get cozy because here's the final unveiling. Hop online to view your slideshow and gallery.
Enjoy that married life and stay in touch!
I’ll arrive bright and early to settle in quickly and say hi to everyone before I start shooting. I want to make sure that everyone (especially you) is 100% comfortable and pumped for the day ahead!
Throughout your day, I’ll be weaving in and out to make sure I catch every precious moment, including moments that went unseen. That quick kiss at the dinner table or tucking that loose strand of hair behind your ear. All the moments that make your heart flutter.
I’ll be the chameleon you want me to be – whether you want me to be the ringmaster herding everyone up for a shot, or to sneak around in the background, capturing all the natural, candid moments. No cheesiness or cringy, forced poses here!
With the timeline I help you create, I'll keep everyone on track to make sure we stay right on schedule. No need to worry! Just sit back, relax, be present, and enjoy your day!
Choosing to pass on the videographer, or looking for a way to share your photos with loved ones who couldn’t make it? All packages include a slideshow of your day’s gorgeous highlights: from getting ready with your besties to partying all night, I can’t wait to retell the romance all over again with your photos from beginning to end. You’ll love having this additional way of reliving your big day!
I'm based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, but I'll travel basically anywhere! Love love love exploring new places! If you're thinking of taking your photoshoot in another state or overseas, please get in touch so we can chat about the finer details.
Each wedding is unique and I believe in quality over quantity, so I don't try to hit a pre-determined number of images. I edit and send all the best images, which tends to be 50-100 images/hour of coverage! The average amount I send depends on the package you choose and how the day goes!
You will receive a link to your online gallery so you can relive your wedding day, download photos and the slideshow, and order prints if you want! The gallery remains open for 14 months.
Firstly, I'll send you a handful of sneak peek photos within a few days after your wedding. It will take roughly 4-6 weeks to receive your full gallery of final wedding photos and the slideshow. I put a lot of love and care into perfecting each image, which is why it'll take me a little bit more time to deliver your final images. If you'd like your photos sooner, please ask me about the rush fee.
It will take roughly 4-8 weeks to receive the final super 8 video. If you do this as an add-on, it will be delivered in the same gallery as your photos. Since I am using real film, I need to send it out to be developed and scanned before I can edit it with all the love and care it deserves, which is why it'll take a bit longer. Well worth the wait, I promise!
Yes, I require a non-refundable retainer upfront to hold the date, then the rest is split into two. I can split it into more installments if you want, just let me know!
Of course, I'd love for you to print your favorite photos! You can easily order photo prints through your online gallery.
Life is complicated and the unexpected is to be expected. The retainer is non-refundable, as this helps to protect my business due to turning away all other booking for your wedding date. I hope you understand that the retainer is insurance for my business to stay afloat in the event of a cancellation.
This sure has been a crappy time, huh? No one knows when things will go back to normal, so I have tried to be as flexible as I can. Please reach out to discuss my current policy. I want you to feel confident that I will do everything I can to make your session go off without a hitch!
A million times YESS!!! LGBTQIA+, no matter how you identify and regardless of how you define your relationship, I'd love to be a part of your wedding day. Love is love and I'm 100% here for it!
I do not give my RAW (unedited) images away. My editing style is part of the my art and a major part of the feeling of the photos. It makes them come alive! I deliver high resolution, fully edited images. Trust me, you don't want the RAWS!
These are photos of you, so if you are uncomfortable with your photos being shared on my social media platforms, I will respect that. I also have the option for you to choose the images you are comfortable with me sharing and I will stick to those!
My rule of thumb is that I remove things that won't be there in a couple weeks, like zits, bruises, etc. I offer more extensive skin retouching for an extra fee.
Not to worry! I'll direct you the whole time. Take a deep breath, relax and just have some fun!
One of mine is acts of service! I really hope my couples know how deeply I care for each and every one of them. I make sure that I'm not just your photographer, but a new friend. I appreciate all the people I have the pleasure of working with and I give them my all from now and into the future.
