At the core of my practice as a wedding photographer, I believe…

... that  if your wedding traditions are not authentic and meaningful to you, then you deserve the freedom to build new traditions.

... that  men, women, and people of all genders are beautiful and deserve to have that beauty celebrated.

... that  we are most beautiful when we love fully and without reserve.

... that  no wedding or elopement is too small to commemorate.

... that  photographs are the record of memory and of personal history.

... that  you deserve to remember this.

My name is Kate

I photograph elopements and intimate wedding for unconventional people who prefer to build their own traditions and choose their own adventures.

"Kate exceeded our expectations for an Elopement Photographer.... She took our vision and made it a reality...The day of the wedding she was a breeze to work with. We ended up with a foggy beach wedding (we were hoping for sun) but the photos turned out even more beautifully than we could've expected." - Brittany + Terry
