hey there! I’m katie!
Hopeless romantic, lover of flowers and sunsets, and most importantly, professional third wheel - HA! but seriously, that’s what this job feels like in the best possible way! I strive for my sessions to feel so effortless and comfortable, almost as if we’re just friends hanging out (which I hope we become by the end of your session or wedding!)
In my downtime, you can find me at home binging Criminal Minds, The Vampire Diaries, or Gilmore Girls with my pets, Major and Willow, doing sudoku puzzles, or spending time with family.
But I’m constantly daydreaming of my next trip - I wish I could see every corner of the world! Planning a destination wedding? I’m in! Photography and traveling are the two things that make my heart truly SO happy, and to combine the two? That’s the ultimate DREAM.
Based in metro-Detroit, I am a wedding and couples photographer for the laid-back, genuine, and in-love! Documenting the authentic connections that you share is one of my strongest passions in life. Your story deserves to be told, and to create the first heirlooms of your new family is my greatest privilege.
I will laugh with you during your engagement session, and I will cry happy tears with you on your wedding day. As a photographer, I wear many unexpected hats on your wedding day (planner, dress fluffer, problem solver - just to name a few) all of which I welcome with open arms! I will be there for you throughout the planning process, to help make sure your wedding day runs smoothly, and I hope to continue our friendship past the delivery of your gallery!
It means so much to me to watch my clients grow their families and thrive in their lives. While I specialize in weddings, engagements, and portrait photography, I also photograph everything in between!
photography is my biggest passion in life, but traveling is a very, very close second. there's just something about exploring a new city or country and getting to experience the different cultures that the world has to offer that fuels my fire. I am so blessed for the opportunities that I have had in my life so far to see the world, but I am always ready for another adventure!
the opportunity to combine these two passions would be the ultimate dream! I am always down to go wherever my photography takes me. if you and your fiancé have a location that's significant to you two outside of Michigan - let's go!! if you have a dream international destination for your wedding - I'm down!
