At age 15, I photographed my first wedding with a camera that I borrowed from a friend. That one wedding was all that it took. I knew what I wanted to do forever.

The following years, I practiced and photographed every friend or family member that would let me – all through high school, 4 years in the Air Force, moving across the country, earning a degree in marketing – whenever I had the chance.

Throughout all of my life experiences, the states lived, the part-time jobs, growing in photography has always been a main focus. I bought my first "big" camera at 16, and I've had one at an arm's length ever since. It's been a quite the journey, but I've come a long, long way since that wedding I photographed at 15!

"I can't speak highly enough of Katelyn! She is so responsive, so much fun to work with, and so wonderfully laid back and adaptable. She delivered an incredible final gallery within weeks. We absolutely loved her."

"This girl is a rockstar."

– annette & dylan

"From the moment I met Katelyn, I knew she was the right person to be the photographer for our wedding. Her vibe and professionalism shines through. We are not the best picture ready people but with Katelyn’s guidance she just gets you inspired and in the moment."

"We were amazed by all the details + moments she captured."

– angela & kenneth

"Katelyn was absolutely amazing!  For two awkward, non-photogenic folks, she made us look Instagram worthy πŸ˜…. We got our pictures sooner than expected also and they are a dream!"

"She made us feel comfortable right from the start."
