Denver Wedding Photographer

COMBINing art + authentic emotion


I'm Kate!

I’m a dog obsessed, coffee shop lurking, cynically witty, 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 in the intimate weddings of modern, free-spirited, artistic couples who want photos that are authentic, emotional, and a little outside the box. 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. 


Keeping it real.

Getting to know you lets me see how you interact together, how you hold hands, who makes the other laugh more, and how you rest together in a quiet moment. It lights a fire in my soul to honestly capture that so when your friends and family see your photos, they see exactly who you are, not who you were holding an awkward pose.

Show up willing to play, do some weird things, and be vulnerable with each other. That's what makes magic. Oh, and dogs don't hurt either. 

"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. "

experience matters

"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."

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 make sure everything runs like clockwork. 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. I care deeply about my couples and their experience.

We just might be a perfect fit, if...

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

  • You want photos that feel natural, authentic, and aren’t awkwardly posed.

  • You're having a wedding that's a little outside of the box.

  • You want a vendor team for your wedding who genuinely cares about you and making your day perfect.

  • You love kicking your Birkenstocks off underneath the sticky table of a microbrewery and soaking up the sun with a dog at your feet.

"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, because you're amazing. My couples are unique, so 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 completely comfortable so they let the walls down to really be with each other.
