“Katie did our engagement pictures as well as our wedding pictures. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about our experience with her! She is the most kind, easy to talk to, and genuine person. The minute we met, I felt like I had known her forever. Katie was more than willing to fly all the way to Arizona for our engagement pictures and to Iowa for a wedding. I love how she captures beautiful moments in a way that looks so natural and not posed. I absolutely love how our engagement and wedding pictures turned out! I would highly recommend Katie to anyone needing pictures taken. She is the best!”

“Katie flew to Iowa to shoot our wedding, and I tell everyone my favorite part of our wedding (other than marrying my husband) was the photography! Katie made so many special moments from our day even more magical, and she caught moments on camera that we will be able to relive over and over again. We had 10 flower girls/ring bearers, along with a very large wedding party in general... and she did an INCREDIBLE job. We have received so many compliments on our photos. I would recommend Katie to everyone. She makes your day fun, calms your nerves, and captures the best photos.”

“When I first found Katie I noticed that she didn't have maternity on her site but I loved her work so much that I asked her anyway. She was so eager and happy to do my maternity photos even though it's not something she typically does! We went and found our location and the whole process from travel to shoot was less than an hour and a half. And bless her heart, she had all of our pictures edited and sent to me the same night! She has a contagious spirit and gets my absolute highest recommendation! I will definitely be looking for more opportunities to shoot with her!”

“Katie did both our engagement and wedding photos-and there are many, many wonderful things to say about her, as a person and about the photos we received. She is so kind, sweet, easygoing, and definitely brings the type of warmth and thoughtfulness needed on your wedding day! It is easy to see, not only from our photos but from seeing other couple's photos, that Katie is able to make her clients feel natural and comfortable in front of the camera- and capture those instances when we are just being ourselves. Katie was also so easy to communicate with, and is clearly very organized and knowledgable about all sorts of wedding day logistics and timelines. She is very attentive to all the little details (like making sure there's no hair tie on your wrist before you walk down the aisle). My husband and I were both blown away by the amount of beautiful photos we received back from her (just a month after the wedding!!). The creativity and the diversity of shots she took really capture all the different moments, emotions, and details of the day. There was an abundance of photos from the morning of, the first look, bridal party, family, ceremony, and reception. All in all, Katie is not only a fantastic photographer, but also that extra cheerleader and hand throughout your whole wedding day-so reliable, so helpful, and so FUN!”

“Katie was such a pleasure to work with, and she is so personable that it didn't feel like 'work' at all! She is genuine and down to earth and we knew she wanted to knock our photos out of the park (which she did), so it made the engagement session as well as our wedding day that much more fun. She was also extremely helpful on the day of the wedding, going above and beyond 'photographer' duties! I feel like we became fast friends and would hire her again in a heartbeat.”

Katie is such a joy to work with. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer. She flew all the way to Minnesota to capture our day. The photos she took are so unique and the moments she caught we can look back on and relive. She was so patient and kind and listened to what we wanted. She is also very professional and made us feel very comfortable. Her work is just incredible! We have received a TON of compliments on our photos and those were just the sneak peaks! I would recommend Katie to everyone and anyone. Truly thankful we were able to have her capture our day! Thanks Katie!!

“Not only is Katie an excellent photographer with a great eye & style, she is a phenomenal person to have with you on your wedding day (or for any special event). My wife & I had Katie do the photography for our wedding & we must have said over 50 times to each other “I am so glad we chose Katie.” She is endlessnessly helpful & thoughtful. She made sure the logistics were locked in & executed timely, she clearly communicated so everyone knew what they were doing, & she help look after the details (whether it’s holding on to car keys or minding the nuances of a large group photo). She is so easy to work with & really made everyone involved at ease & comfortable. We received edits quickly & were even given an awesome preview before the final package too! We would chose Katie again in a heartbeat because of the stunning quality of the photos, but also because of her efficiency, ridiculously great attention to detail, & contagious kindness. Your day is in great hands with Katie.”

MITCH & BRIANNA RENFROW

This is one of the best decisions we made through our entire wedding planning process. Katie is AHMAZING. Neither my husband or I like getting pictures taken of ourselves (seriously, the whole week leading up to our engagement photos we were absolutely dreading the moment), but right when this bucket of sunshine hopped into our backseat I had not a worry in the world. Maybe Mitch did, but with a lot of “woo-woo’s!” during the kissing pics and he got embarrassed enough to relax and let it happen ;) And the pictures were GORGEOUS. The day of our wedding, I couldn’t have been more impressed by her professionalism and kindness, that girl is quick! And she’ll stick to a schedule too. I felt like she took over as wedding coordinator a few times and saved my unorganized butt, and she got me down the aisle right on time 👌 I heard nothing but great things all day about Katie, she is such a joy to work with. Her candid photography catches the most sincere and beautiful moments of the day and I truly cannot imagine not having her be a part of it. Just look at her work, it speaks for itself. Not often do I want to blow up a picture of myself and frame it on a wall (legit though, the only picture in my house is one of our engagement pics). Look no further for your candid photographer, Katie is a professional, efficient, easygoing photographer and takes breath-taking photos that are sure to capture every moment, even the ones that don’t seem that pretty, and turn them into a work of art. Thank you Katie!
