The Wedding Experience
Everything you need to know about our style, philosophy & process, plus what our past brides are saying about what it really means to be a #ksbride!
Someone that feels like a friend you would grab coffee & catch up with. You need someone that understands your style, story, and vision for your day and uses it to create an experience that completely blows you away... Do me a favor: take one of those deep, relaxing breaths & then let it all the way out. Because all those things are exactly what we do.
I'm Katie, photographer, wife, and proud puppy mama. My college sweetheart, Adam & I are a husband and wife team based in Wisconsin. We are relentless in the pursuit of providing our sweet KS Brides with images they go wild over and an experience they’ll not only enjoy, but one they will treasure forever. And to top it all off, we build some truly amazing friendships along the way.
We know you need someone that you’re not only confident will take pretty photos, but someone that you truly connect with.
You probably know by now that wedding photography isn’t one-size fits all. It’s not a simple transaction and isn’t something to be taken lightly. In addition to heart-stopping, swoon-worthy photos, you need someone that doesn’t just show up to take pictures, but a trusted friend that cares just as much about your day as you do. Our heart & mission is to provide joyful couples with beautiful, timeless images and an experience that will last a lifetime.
If you're a bride that loves joyful, timeless, and
light-filled wedding photos, you're in the right place.
"Choosing Katie will be one of the best decisions you make during your wedding process."
Cliff & Hannah:
"If you are thinking about choosing Katie as your photographer, do not waste any more time, choose her now!"
Kyle & Kaitlyn
"I just keep scrolling through them all smiling so big. We could not be happier that we chose you as our wedding photographer!"
Jeff & Katie
"When you become a KS bride you’re not just a bride for a day, you are honestly gaining friends for life!"
Charlie & Juna
“Katie is sunshine and joy and I'm SO happy to have worked with her!”
Choosing a wedding photographer is no easy decision - it is not a one size fits all! I start every relationship by getting to know a little bit about you to make sure that we are the perfect fit! After all, you will be spending more time with me on your wedding day than your future spouse! Once we determine that we’re a match made in heaven, we’ll move right along to the booking process. I’ll send you a simple-to-read online booking proposal, where you can review the details of your package and pay your deposit. Once this is done, your date is reserved (woo!!) and we are officially official!
Step 1: Let's be friends!
You're just as excited about your marriage as you are about your wedding day!
Next up - your engagement session! This is where the fun begins! Your engagement session is the perfect way for me to get to know you as a couple before your big day and get you in front of the camera for the first time! And don’t you worry, I’ll guide you every step of the way. I’ll teach you exactly how to pose so that you are 100% comfortable and look completely natural during your session! Forget about stiff, awkward images. I thrive at helping my couples not only look their absolute best in their images, but also feel comfortable & confident in front of the camera.
Step 2: Engagement Session
Joyful, light-filled, timeless images are what you're after!
One of the things that sets us apart is how we handle your timeline! We love creating custom timelines for our brides that allow us to capture your dream wedding photos! Those beautiful, perfectly lit portraits, fun bridal party photos and magazine-worthy detail shots? We want you to have all of those and more! We work closely with our couples to create a seamless timeline so they can have all of those photos of their own!
Step 3: Your Wedding Timeline
You're looking for a seamless, stress-free planning experience!
When we’re about 4 weeks out from your wedding day, we’ll start confirming the details so that you’re completely prepared! We’ll confirm your timeline one more time, go over any special requests, and make sure all the i's are dotted and t's are crossed! And then... it's your big day! I work hard to capture your day as it unfolds - from the detail shots, to the ceremony, to my FAVORITE part - portraits of the bride & groom. The following week, you’ll be featured on the blog! I want my couples to be able to relive the most special day of their lives while they are still in a state of pure bliss!
Step 4: Your Wedding Day
You deeply care about the people you'll be celebrating your wedding day with.
After your wedding day is over, I will send you an online gallery FULL of your wedding memories! Hundreds and hundreds of them! I encourage my couples to sit down, relax (with glass of wine, of course) and enjoy reliving the most special day of your lives! Soon after your gallery is delivered, you will receive your album design (if you ordered an album!) and you can begin the customization process!
Step 5: Gallery + Album
You're simply looking for something MORE when it comes to your wedding experience.
We get to know our couples so we can capture them in the best way possible!
You'll be able to look back on your wedding photos decades from now and still be just as in love with them!
So you can relive the best day of your lives when you're still in a state of pure bliss!
