    Have a look around the website and contact me if you're looking for a photographer who specializes in fun, fresh, and lifestyle-inspired wedding photography.

Although the day was super windy and cold, the warmth of these two and their love for each other and Jesus warmed the day. Holly and Jeff are two pretty amazing people who are headed to Tanzania to live and work translating the Bible and sharing the gospel. Pretty cool huh? Their wedding day was a reflection of their devotion to Christ and their love of fun, laughter, and good friends. Despite the challenges of the weather we were able to brave the chill for some beautiful afternoon portraits! I loved being part of the day and seeing these two exchange their vows. Here is just a glancing preview of all their photographs from the day!

I had the opportunity to visit my grandmother in Saint Augustine Florida last week and being back at her place brought back so many memories. Many people associate their grandmothers with knitting, cookies, and very frilly decor. But when I think of my grandmother I think of Spain, books, and scholarship. My grandmother is an author, historian, and archaeologist and everything about her home breathes that fact. As long as I can remember, the house has been the same. Same artwork on the walls, same furniture, same kitchen scissors. In my generation, the trend is to change and change often, so I find it really refreshing to be in a place that is not influenced by what’s trending now, but what my grandmother lives and loves. Enjoy the photos. They were created with love and I think it shows…

  • Merideth Shaw - Beautiful photographs, Katie. I especially love the post processing. Great work, as always!

Modern day weddings have started a trend called the “First Look” — a set up time where the bride and groom see each other before the wedding ceremony to maximize their photo opportunities! Not only is it great for making the most of the hours you’ve hired your photographer for, it can be one of the sweetest and most memorable moments of your wedding day. One of my favorite first looks was in 2010 and I feel like I have to re-share these photos with everyone. The images are so, so special. They bring back the memories of tears all around, including in my eyes!
