Radiant. Evocative. Romantic. I’ve been a Colorado wedding photographer since 2006 and since then have told the stories of over 250 couples. I love photographing stories so much that I hope the iphone or selfie stick never puts me out of business. My favorite people of course are my husband Greg and our 2 sons Austin and Chase. Our family also includes a dog and a horse. Yes, I cry during mother son dances and even first looks between dads and daughters. I loved everything about our wedding at Crooked Willow and my favorite memory is my husband’s face as I walked down the aisle. As your wedding photographer I care about all the important aspects that make you two unique and I am able to anticipate fleeting moments, key details, and naturally flatter your style and personalities effortlessly. There are few moments in life more special, joyous, and unforgettable than your wedding day and there will be so many extraordinary details and intimate moments that need to be preserved. Trust me to find and create the heirloom images from this day to tell the story of the beginning of your lives together. Whether your wedding day is an intimate affair or an exquisite extravaganza, my clients have the option of a second photographer, same day wedding slideshows, online galleries and fine-art prints. I have custom collections to accommodate your wish list as well as custom designed wedding and engagement albums.

“The first thing that comes to mind when I think of our photos and experience with Katie is WOW! We first met Katie when she did our engagement photos. She was very easy to work with and made us very comfortable. My husband is NOT a fan of having his pic taken and Katie made the experience feel very natural, even in those intimate (slightly awkward) poses. She made us laugh and guided us on what to do and the photos turned out wonderful! We then worked with her on our big day, and again… WOW! I can’t even begin to describe how wonderful everything turned out. This was really her time to shin, and it showed through her every avenue of her work. From coordinating the timeline with the venue, to capturing those must-have shots I didn’t even know I needed – Katie was hands down one of the BEST photographers I’ve ever worked with. I can’t wait for our paths to cross again and have her capture and create more memories to cherish looking back on.”
“I loved working with Katie on our big day. Her professionalism and creative mind are limitless. Finding a photographer can be a long grueling process but the moment I met Katie I knew she’d be the perfect photographer for our big day. She makes you feel so comfortable and you can trust that she is going to capture all those big and small moment you’ll forget about. She really listens to the moments you must have and does a fantastic job. Bridal portraits were the most important shots to me and I cannot wait to see all the pictures. I’m so grateful that she was there. It’s not luck that we found Katie, she is amazing and you will love her! MUST HIRE.”
“Finding a wedding photographer can be a very daunting and stressful task, but when we came across Katie’s portfolio online we immediately sent her an e-mail! Upon talking to her further and getting a better idea of who she was both professionally and personally, we knew she was our girl. She made the process as easy as it gets and was truly such a blessing from the first email all the way until the last photo was taken. Our wedding was in Grand Lake, Colorado and both her and her assistant made the long trek and arrived early and ready to go in plenty of time for our first look photos. Honestly, we just cannot recommend her enough! Along with taking amazing photos, she is very kind, fun, and easy to work with. She brought SO many amazing ideas to the table and truly thinks out of the box and does whatever it takes to get the perfect shot. We remember so vividly one moment in particular, my husband and I were standing on the doc near the venue and it was very proving challenging to get the right angle. Katie called out to us “I’m going to try something” and then next thing we knew, Katie had rolled up the legs of her jeans and was IN the water making it possible to get the right angle and take the most incredible pictures! Yes, this is turning into a long review, but honestly we cannot praise Katie and her work enough. If you’re looking for someone who is going to work hard, make the day as stress free as possible, and have some fun with you, Katie is your girl!”
