The lady behind the lens

I’m so honored you are considering me to capture your precious memories. I am a hopeless romantic, a big dreamer and a huge believer in telling a story. I love connecting with my clients to know their story and to create beautiful artwork that is honest and real. I am passionate about capturing great love stories, and delivering clients imagery that they will cherish forever.

I'm a Midwest girl who loves Lake Michigan, the four seasons, movies and the smell of fresh rain. I prefer a messy bun and flannels to curls and heels, because that's just me. I believe in laughing out loud, living life to the fullest and loving deeply.

I'm married to my best friend, Chris and blessed to be a mama to our little loves, Tucker, Savannah and Finn. We love summer, sunsets and Sunday brunch, which always includes the favorite: blueberry pancakes with freshly whipped cream and real maple syrup.

Wedding photography is the one investment during your wedding planning that will beautifully preserve your memories to be passed down for generations. My clients choose me to create gorgeous images that evoke emotion and capture the beauty in the details. But just as important is putting you at ease and helping you prepare, so on that one extraordinary day, you’re relaxed and fully in the moment.

Congratulations on your engagement! It's the most wonderful feeling in the world. As you prepare for your wedding day, an engagement session is something that I offer to capture and celebrate this special moment between the two of you. I always say that an engagement session should treated as a date night. It’s time to get all dressed up and spend time with the one you love! It is truly a once in a lifetime experience and I love doing this for all my couples.

Engagements starting at $300

"Katie was so wonderful to work with! She was professional and captured our day perfectly - we loved her work and attention to detail. Our pictures are amazing and I can’t stop looking at them! She made us feel comfortable in front of the camera even though my husband and I don’t really enjoy having our photos taken. If you’re looking for a photographer to capture your perfect day book her!"

"As the parents of the bride, we hoped to have someone add to the day through their talents as a photographer and Katie did that and more. She became a part of all the friends and family celebrating alongside Emily and Colton on their special day!! We feel blessed to have found Katie and have her capture all the moments of our daughter and son-in-law’s day!"

"Katie has such a warm and laid back vibe about her, giving her a way of making everyone else feel relaxed and comfortable so that their best self shines through. Her ability to capture the beauty of all the special moments of our wedding day still takes my breath away.

She was nothing short of incredible to work with. She was quickly responsive and kind in the wedding planning process and offered advice that far exceeded the realm of her expertise, she quickly became our calm, our friend. "

"Katie was absolutely wonderful to work with leading up to and the day of our wedding! She was very helpful in articulating expectations. She was recommended to us by a photographer friend, and at our first meeting immediately calmed any anxiety we had hiring someone new to us. The day of the wedding Katie was flexible with timeline changes (as people arrived late and the first look was pushed back). She took everything in stride and made sure to make every moment a productive one. She captured our day and all of the details absolutely beautifully! We now have stunning photos that captured the best day."

"Katie photographed our wedding in September and I HIGHLY recommend her. I was so happy with all of the photos and Katie was amazing to work with. She’s very personable and great at what she does. Communication was a piece of cake and she is so organized. She made our special day a breeze. Our sneak peeks came only a few short days after our wedding which was unexpected but so exciting! Katie comes highly recommended for both her stunning photos and awesome personality!"

Melanie and juan

"I was absolutely pleased with Katie’s work and I would highly recommend her. She did our engagement and wedding photos. Katie was extremely helpful, kind and professional. She is so easy to work with I felt like we had known each other for years. I loved the extent she would go to get the perfect photo at times I thought she would climb a tree for the shot if she had to! We just received our wedding photos back and I can’t say enough about them. The pictures were ABSOLUTELY gorgeous. You will not be disappointed with her work."
