some of my favorite giggles and snuggles...

I'm Kate!

I’m a dog obsessed, coffee shop lurking, mischievously playful, Colorado 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. I specialize the intimate weddings of independent, modern, free-spirited, artists who are thrilled to spend time with their friends and family. There are few things in this world I love more than documenting the raw emotion, laughter, and affection of a couple and their guests on their wedding day. 

Traditional? No, thanks!

I love weddings... I really do. But, I can't stand weddings when it is for the sake of "tradition," because "mom wants it," or "because she told me I had to." I love the weddings where you both are insanely in love with each other and both passionate about creating a party to remember! When people like you plan weddings, each little tiny detail has a story behind it, traditions get thrown out the window, and everything that YOU are is right out there for everyone to see and feel.

I want authenticity

The lack of authenticity in the wedding industry infuriates me. Throughout my whole process, I am real and true to myself. That's all I ask of you, too. My goal is to capture you both exactly as you are, and to tell your story with honesty. Ultimately, this is about you. Your relationship. Your party. And that's what's most important to me.

show me your weird side, your loving side, your creative side, and let's go on an adventure!

^^THAT'S MY IT GUY AND MY HR LADY...

Luke and Leia (aka Luke Spookum and Leia-guuuurl). They're both shelter rescues and pitbulls, but otherwise are complete opposites. She's gregarious and outgoing, he's a total introvert who loves snuggles more than anything else. Believe it or not, they're totally integral to my business. Without their snuggles while I edit, I would never get anything done! For the record I'm totally comfortable accosting a stranger to pet their dog...

MORE ABOUT MY WORLD...

I'm a dog-lover. I adore going on adventures into the foothills and breathing the sweet mountain air deep into my lungs. I'm a coffee addict (because a coffee shop is the best place to wile away an afternoon). But, after five you can find me lounging in the sun on a brewery patio drinking whatever is dark, sour, or fruity. Or, I'll be snuggled up with my doggos and husband on the couch watching whatever TV show we decided to binge this week. Lastly, I'm a nerd. I'll totally school you on your Harry Potter, Star Wars, or Lord of the Rings mythology.

Kirbie + Dylan

OCTOBER 2016

“Dylan and I are so overwhelmed with how many stunning, beautiful moments you captured. I can't say enough to thank you for everything you have done for us. We are so in love with all of the photos of our family, the scenery and every intimate moment you captured.”

Ali + Kelton

DECEMBER 2016

"Where do I begin...! From the moment we met Kate we could tell she was super passionate about her work, down to earth, and a true listener. I already knew her work was stunning from her portfolio, but I am completely blown away with the images she captured from our wedding."

Nate + Molly

NOVEMBER 2016

"In short, if you are looking for a wedding photographer, we cannot recommend her enough. 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."
