No matter what your love looks like, you’ll look damn good.

Denver Wedding Photography for folkx
in love with their weird.

Booking Kate will be the best decision that you make for your wedding. You will never regret it. She was amazing from the first day we met her to our wedding day. We recently got our photos back and we love every single one of them. Everyone we have shown our photos to has commented on how unique, artistic, and beautiful they are. My sister is a wedding planner in LA and works with very high-end photographers. She said that she would have no hesitation in recommending Kate to any of her clients. We love Kate and are beyond grateful we picked her!

I'm Kate!

I’m a dog obsessed, coffee shop lurking, spunky Denver wedding photographer. I’m blessed with a very dry sense of humor (I’m British, I can't help it) and love using it to diffuse awkwardness in front of the camera. As one of my couples wonderfully phrased it, I’m “artsy without being inaccessible.” You know when things look good, and I do too. I’m here for the weirdos, wanderers, and folx who make the world a rad place.

There are few things in this world I love more than witnessing and capturing the raw emotion, laughter, and affection of a couple and their guests on their wedding day. I’m Denver based, but travel all around Colorado for weddings. My trusty Subaru and I hit the hills, the streets of RiNo, and adorable coffee shops on the reg. My business does not discriminate and I am both a member of the LGBTQ community and an LGBTQ (and everything that doesn’t have a letter yet)-friendly wedding photographer.

So, what’s my deal?


not this week’s viral pinterest pose

I prioritize letting your personalities shine, so that when you and your loved ones see your wedding photos, they recognize all the little things that make the two of you unique: the way you laugh, cuddle, or even roll your eyes at each other’s antics. When I know what makes the two of you tick, I can capture your relationship authentically instead of sticking you into this week’s hottest Pinterest pose.

I believe that a photographer should capture the moment, not narrate the story.

If you show up willing to play, do some weird things, and be vulnerable with each other, that will make magic. Oh, and dogs don't hurt either.

No tight smiles or stiff prom poses included.

highly highly recommend working with Kate for your wedding, *especially* if you are an LGBT couple! No stodgy heteronormative posing or uncomfortable “who is the guy” awkwardness. Kate got it and our photos turned out beautifully as a result.

after 300 weddings and six years…

After over 300 weddings and 6 years professionally photographing weddings, I've seen it all. What does that mean for you? A photographer who keeps it cool under pressure and is there to guarantee you have an amazing day. My goal is to make sure your wedding day is as easy and stress free as possible—despite being a photographer, I will do anything I can to step up to the plate and help out if needed.

She was professional, making sure that I had nothing to worry about, but she also gave such a heartfelt, personal treatment that my day was full of joy.

we’ll vibe if…

  • You want photos that are different, creative, and artistic.

  • You want photos that feel natural, authentic, playful, and most importantly: not awkward

  • You're having a wedding that's a little outside of the box (farms, breweries, art galleries, OH MY)

  • You want to throw tradition out the window and have the wedding that YOU want.

  • You want a photographer who is inclusive of all types of love and all types of people.

Her work speaks for itself, but if you’re having doubts, stop having them and book her. She was one of the best wedding decisions we made.

what makes me different?

You do! My couples are unique. Every photo is different because I'm capturing who you are. My heart sings when I walk away from a session or a wedding knowing I captured something 100% genuine.

I hate stiff poses, faked smiles, and awkwardness.

I am only happy when I know I made my couples comfortable so they let the walls down to focus on being with each other in the moment. What’s next?

Kate captured my partner and I’s relationship in a truly stunning way...She captured some truly gorgeous candid shots of my partner and me and our loved ones…Her photos are dripping with light and glowing, sun-dappled aspens and fields. There are so many jaw-dropping photos of my partner and me that I honestly don’t even know where to begin when choosing one or two to frame for our home.
