washington, Annapolis baltimore wedding photographer
Wedding photography, my family and exploring nature are my passions. They bring me joy and show me what life is all about!
I am so glad you are here! The task of selecting a photographer can be overwhelming. Part of my job is to take away any stress so you can enjoy this chapter in your life. The best photographs come when you are experiencing a genuine ease and comfort in being yourself. I want you to look back at your photographs and relive the emotions you felt in that moment. Weddings are not just one day. The love you feel now will carry you through the hard times in the future. We are creating heirlooms together!
You should enjoy your wedding! I will keep track of timing, sunsets, family members we need for portraits so all you need to do is show up and have fun. Being in the moment creates the most beautiful photographs! I bring all the equipment and personnel needed to fully capture your wedding. I gather all the necessary names and information beforehand and I work closely with your coordinator and other vendors so we are all in sync. You just show up!

"Kate is a phenomenal photographer. She was so easy to work with and was overly helpful with us having to move our wedding due to covid. The photos she took for our two engagement shoots are so amazing. And then on our wedding photos are SO amazing. She takes control and keeps things moving along while still being very sweet and respectful. We had so much fun with her and she truly captured some amazing moments and memories. It’s so awesome working with her because not only is her work exceptional but her personality makes it even more enjoyable. I really can’t say enough good things about her and would HIGHLY recommend her if you want the best photography experience at your event. I am so excited to work with her again at The next milestone in our life. Not to mention she is shooting a second wedding event for us next year. She is truly the best out there!!

We had a very small wedding (15 people) on a sailboat. I knew that for any photographer, it would be difficult to fully mesh in given the intimate nature of the wedding. Kate blew me away though. Kate got to the venue early and immediately started snapping photos. From the start, she was warm to every single family member. On the boat, she fit right in as if she was part of the family. She has impeccable timing and class when it came to getting everyone to pose for photos. She also has the most patience I have ever seen dealing with family members using their own devices to take photos. She seized every opportunity to take photos -- we got some amazing shots with the sunset, sailboats in the background, and the full harvest moon during our wedding! We loved Kate so much. My husband and I woke up at 3am following the wedding because we couldn't sleep. All we could talk about was how grateful we were to have Kate there to capture our wedding.

Kate was our wedding photographer, and we HIGHLY recommend her. She really is a fine art photographer--her talent is off-the-charts amazing. First impressions: She was very responsive when we were trying to book, which was greatly appreciated when we were in the frantic early days of planning. We were already sold based on her portfolio, but she did a free engagement session for us as part of our booking. It was so reassuring to see her in action before the big day - we knew we were in good hands from the start! On our wedding day, she and Maria (her co-photographer) really saved the day. We didn't have a wedding planner/coordinator, and Kate made sure we were all running on schedule. She was a PRO at herding people and making sure we got all of the photos we wanted--even with a bunch of small kids. And everyone loved her. She was cheerful and kind, but authoritative. Perfect balance. And the photos. Oh, the photos. Multiple family members shed tears of joy looking at the beautiful photos of our wedding. Kate captured the venue, our family and friends, and all of the action perfectly in every type of lighting. She also somehow made my husband and I look like movie stars. No joke. I was absolutely blown away. Kate made our wedding look as romantic and elegant and special as it felt, and we are so grateful she was our photographer.

Hello and welcome! I grew up in the Annapolis area and attended St. Mary's elementary and high school. After studying Fine Art in college, I worked for several local galleries and Arts Councils. In 2003 I began my career in photography with the Maryland Film Office in Baltimore and photographed my first wedding in 2004 with my sister-in-law. I was in love...
