So how is the hunt for a wedding photographer going? I know what it looks like out there on the internets, and I see a lot of the same old poses. Stiff, awkward, with people's heads tilted at that perfect 45 degree angle with a totally blank expression on their faces. If you looked through any of my work, or read any of my site so far, you know thats the last thing I want for you on your wedding day.
you're planning a wedding that screams "this is us!" and I want to make sure your photos yell it even louder.
I know you aren't the kind of couple that fits into some wedding photographer’s cookie-cutter packages. You don’t want a photographer barking orders at you all day in order to get the perfectly lined up family portrait – heads together, smiling stiffly at the camera with a look behind their eyes that screams “make it stop!”
I wouldn’t (and didn't) want that either.
I remember when my husband and I first started planning our wedding. We were sitting next to each other on the plane with my moleskin notebook in our laps putting together the biggest party of our lives (I still feel sorry for the guy who had to sit next to us for the 4 hour trip). Those were moments of elation and excitement. When we got home and actually started looking for vendors, a sinking feeling hit me. Where were the vendors I imagined who wanted to do something unique and exciting? Where were the ones who were just like us and wanted to make sure our wedding was what we wanted...
Let me tell you, it took me a long time to find those people. They are few and far between in this industry. When I decided it was time to jump in and ramp up my business, I knew that I wanted to do things differently.
I treasure my couples for exactly who they are, what they want, and do everything I could to make sure that others do the same.
I also keep everything 100% transparent. I can't express in words on the internet how frustrated I got with sneaky fees, people hiding costs, and no one giving me a straight answer during the planning process. So, everything is on my site, and I keep everything pretty clean cut.
I should tell you more about me. i’m kate.
I’m a dog-obsessed, hiking-addicted, brewery-junkie who also happens to be a 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've been honored to be a part of over 300 weddings to date, and that means I can handle any crazy situation that might get thrown your way. I've seen makeup run so late that the bride was 45 minutes late to her own ceremony, and I made up the time so dinner could still start on time. I've helped grandma sew up the back of a bridesmaids dress that ripped. I've even caught a cake that was melting in the heat before it hit the ground. Trust me... very little stresses me out anymore, which means I'm a calming presence who can help you through any snags as well as being your photographer. I can think of two or three other people who have been through as many weddings as I have, and it definitely shows!
my style is capturing who you are.
I’m not interested in having you fake a kiss or a smile; the fact that you’re crazy about each other is the freaking COOLEST!
I want to spend time getting to know the both of you in a genuine way. I want you to look at your wedding photos and see exactly who you and your darling are. I want to authentically document the crazy whirlwind of emotions that is any wedding day.
Click below to email me and let’s chat over some beer if it's after five or coffee if its before then. I want to know all about the decorations you’re planning to make out of your favorite Harry Potter pages, about those close conversations with your grandparents that mean the world to you, and that you hold each other “just so” when you’re feeling cuddly. These moments are timeless. I want to show the world what's important to you and capture your genuine, authentic, gaga-for-each-other love.
