Your wedding is not like any other, and that's why we don't treat it as such. Say hello to the perfect blend of an experienced professional and passionate partner.

"without a doubt, katherine was the best investment we made for our wedding."

Tara + james, married at 501 union in 2019

Those *blink and you miss it* moments that you will feel and remember forever. Captured. 

THE power of  IN-BETWEEN MOMENTS

No more awkward photo of your shoes or dress hanging, or stuffy images of bouquets. While we capture everything in full, we'll bring life to many of the photos so they become part of the story of your day.

bringing life to the details

04

No ugly flash ruining the ambience here. Your photos will have beautiful true-to-life lighting from your candlelit reception, with a touch of romantic motion that prevents your images from feeling static.

NATURAL LIGHT, ALWAYS

03

Your wedding photos will be more than just real candids of the two of you, but intentional and moving art, capturing the essence of your partnership without feeling like a wedding trend on Pinterest.

PORTRAITS THAT FEEL LIKE ART

02

You can look epic in photos without it feeling forced or cliche. We'll mix the fun candids that capture your personalities with the rad editorial photos that make you go "holy sh*t" - an alternative approach.

BUH-BYE TRADITIONAL WEDDING PHOTOS

Candid and genuine portraits of your loved ones and guests. Now, more than ever, we all recognize the value of time spent with the people we love. Your final photo gallery will be filled with reactions, emotions, and moments with your guests. They're part of the story too.

wedding photos done differently

a rundown of my alternative storytelling style

 "I can't even describe the immense feeling of warmth, excitement and joy that my heart is beating with right now. I honestly feel like it's the big day all over again with every single photo that you've shared. You were so wonderful to work with, even making a gloomy afternoon look SO AMAZING and you wonderfully captured the spirit of our wedding. 

Quite simply, you're the best. Please let me get you a drink sometime."

Jolie + ryan, married at the wythe in 2019

If none of this looks like the right fit to you, please don't hesitate to say so. We're more than happy to adjust and customize to create the perfect package for you.

While every wedding is different, we don't believe in holding pricing hostage from you. That's why we've listed our most popular packages for different types of weddings right here, so you can get a feel for where we start at and what's included.

If you are celebrating this year, we have limited availability for dates. Considering your wedding and logistics, we are happy to put together a custom pricing proposal for you tailored to your event. Just drop us a note with some details, and we'll take care of the rest.

"Because when all is said and done, when the meal is forgotten and the toasts are distant memories, you will feel more than blessed to own photographs as dynamic, personal and expressive as Katherine's... Hiring Katherine was not only the best decision we made, but it was the best gift we could give ourselves.

Katherine is a cut above the rest."

Julie + Matt, married at 99 scott

GETTING READY

COME WEDDING DAY

HOW IT WORKS

We will arrive 1-2 hours before your First Look or beginning of the ceremony to capture you and your closest people relaxed and hanging out before the day kicks off. We also like to give both partners their own little solo shoot magazine-style. 

01

FIRST LOOK + PORTRAItS

Rather than doing all your photos in one big chunk (exhausting!), we'll break up portraits to short little times throughout the day to ensure we capture you two at all the emotional stages, from the excitement after you're married to tipsy at the end of the night.

02

FAMILY + WEDDING PARTY

With us, group photos will always feel like a breeze. We'll get a list in advance of all the groupings you'd like so things stay efficient but you get all the photos you want. And don't worry, we always remove iPhones from pockets + sunglasses. It's all in the details.

03

CEREMONY + RECEPTION

From the beginning of the ceremony, we are like flies on the wall for the party. There when you need us to grab a shot of you with your college crew, but blending in with the party to capture those moments where you'll say, "I didn't even know you were there for that!"

04

WRAP IT ALL UP

After about 1-2 hours of dance floor coverage, we pack up our gear, give you goodbye hugs, and ensure that we *got* everything. Then we head home to start editing sneak peeks so your Instagram announcement post isn't a grainy cell phone photo that your mom took from the front row!

We won't waste the precious time on your wedding day forcing you into a bunch of poses. With us by your side, you will be fully present in every moment versus performing it. We'll be there to capture every single one, and more.

YOUR DAY IS NOT ABOUT US.

An experienced understanding of how to work with light and space gives our images that signature cinematic touch. Your photos will not feel like photos, but rather glimpses of life and memory that invite you back into exactly what it felt like to be there...years down the line.

your photos will look just as your memories feel

Rain or shine, logistics changes, construction...we've dealt with it all. We know all the best spots after photographing multiple weddings there, and are guaranteed to make absolute magic in every situation from your First Look to family photos to reception at the end of the night.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT:

When can we expect our photos?

You'll wake up the morning after your wedding to a sneak peek of at least 15 edited photos. All your photos will be delivered in 4-5 weeks via an online gallery you can share with family + friends.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many images can we expect?

Depending on the size of your wedding, we deliver approximately 75-100 photos per hour of coverage. There is no limit on the photos you will receive!

Do we need a second photographer?

A second photographer is typically recommended for weddings with 120 guests or more, bridal parties, and/or certain venue layouts.

Can we order albums & prints?

Yes! You can order prints, frames, and more via your online gallery and we also offer custom-designed, beautiful leather albums that are heirloom pieces. You can learn more about albums here.

Do you travel for weddings?

I've traveled to Hong Kong, Italy, the United Kingdom, California, and beyond for weddings. If your wedding is within 2 hours of NYC, there are no additional charges. If it's beyond that, all I require is accommodation and a travel fee.

Do you have insurance?

Yes! We are insured up to $2,000,000 of liability coverage. Let me know if your venue requires a certificate of insurance.

Can we see full galleries?

Yes, and I actually recommend it. Contact me and I will send over some recent galleries with a similar vibe to what you are planning for your wedding.

What's required to book you for our wedding?

All that is required to book me is a flat $1,000 deposit and the signed contract. You can always adjust your package once you have a better idea of logistics.

What's your kit look like?

I work on a series of mirrorless Nikon Z6 and Z7 cameras with a variety of prime lenses that give your phots a film-like, cinematic feel. I also use a Fuji GFX medium-format camera for editorial-inspired imagery.

Can we customize a package?

Of course! Check out the Pricing Guide to get a feel for the most popular packages. I can always tailor something custom specific to what you are planning.

We're big believers in the power of connection, even if it's just a quick phone call to chat availability and ideas after inquiring. Voice beats typing, all day erryday. I can learn more about what you're planning, your needs for the big day, and walk you through what it will be like with me as your photographer on the day.
