Hey there!
I'm Katie!

I'm a wedding & senior portrait photographer from Wisconsin with enthusiasm for big laughs, sunny days and dog snuggles.

I'm armed with coffee on the daily and a heart for capturing joyful moments of the biggest day of my couples' lives. I was lucky enough to marry my college sweetheart and have since built the sweetest life together. We'll chat more about all that, but first...

let's throw it back
a little...

My business journey probably isn’t the one you’re expecting. Growing up, I wasn’t a kid that knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur (that title still sounds odd to me) or a photographer for that matter. In fact, there was a time around age 5 when I was pretty confident I was going to have a career as a Marine Biologist following an exciting trip to Florida.

But eventually, I started dreaming about being behind the camera. I started my business because I realized I could use my natural gifts to capture memories and bring joy into others’ lives.

I guess what I’m saying is, I was not born with a camera in-hand.
 
My creative journey began with a style blog. This was back in the day when it was weird to have one. I was still in college, but my weekends were spent hunting down the perfect shift dress and convincing my sweet and very patient boyfriend (now turned husband) to help me photograph it. I’m truly very grateful that this was my beginning. My opening act. I didn’t know it at the time, but it provided so many experiences that would cultivate crucial skills for my photography business, like finding great light, coordinating colors, and posing people in a flattering way.

I BELIEVE IN:

Patio happy hours, courage > comfort, sweets of any kind, Lululemon, and chasing your dreams at full speed.

I'm NOT ABOUT:

Cold weather, late nights, disorganization, spicy food, giving up on the person you are meant to become.

YOU CAN FIND ME:

Cheering on cute couples, sippin' margs on the patio, decorating our home, soaking in the sun.

daily rituals

One cup of coffee (no matter the circumstance) cuddles with my adorable pup, and a short (real short) run outside.

katie

Wife, photographer, obsessed dog mom, amateur interior designer... just a few of my favorite titles! I love sunny days, fashion, and patio happy hours. I grew up in a tiny country town, and recently built a house near Madison! I'm passionate about reaching goals building a life I love.

adam

Adam is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. He's easy to chat with, incredibly ambitious, and will go out of his way to help someone in need. He loves being outdoors, trying new foods, and anything with an engine. He's the most amazing husband and dog dad, too!

Wesley

Don’t forget Wesley! Lover of naps, treats, and tug of war. He joined our family in 2016 and has been the object of our overwhelming affection ever since. He holds the title of “Most Spoiled” in our household. You’ve probably seen dozens of photos of him on Instagram already!
