My husband, Daniel, and I currently live in DeKalb, IL. We have two beautiful daughters, and two decent-looking dogs. I've been "taking pictures" for a looong time, and I've been photographing weddings for ten years now.
I've photographed well over 100 weddings. Laughed A TON at a bunch of them, danced at a handful of them, & cried at more than I'll admit. I've asked the DJ to change a song, asked the bartender for two specialty drinks, and asked the kitchen for the cake knife. I've done all this because I'm not just there to "take pictures" but to document your day and help every step of the way. Your wedding photographer will be with you typically from 7-11 hours on one of the best days of your lives and yes, I will personally do everything I can to ensure that it is the BEST day ever.
Over the past couple years I've discovered another love and that's birth photography & fresh 48 sessions. The amount of joy, love, and overwhelming emotions is whirlwind that I truly enjoy being able to capture.
Honestly, weddings and births both contain a miraculous amount of touching emotions. It's the biggest blessing to be able to be a part of those beautiful moments.
With all of that being said, I want to tell your story the way that it is. I want to document these days so when you see the photographs you are reliving beautiful memories and not just a posed picture.
I love the sun. On the water is my favorite place to be. I love new places. I love dogs. I love working with strangers, who turn into friends, who selected me because they truly enjoy my photographs.
My work speaks for my passion. Specializing in weddings and events -- Striving to capture every magnificent moment.

"Katherine was an absolute joy to work with! She was the first photographer that actually listened to what I wanted from her skills for my wedding day, which was such a breath of fresh air. She is a woman with a plan, so if you need someone to help keep the flow of the day moving, Katherine will do so. She's also able to adapt to the atmosphere well. She did a such phenomenal job!`"

"I cannot say enough about how incredible of a photographer Katherine is. Your wedding pictures are truly the main thing you have to look back on after the wedding day is over. The pictures she takes are absolutely gorgeous. On our wedding day she knew exactly where to set everyone up to get the perfect pictures. She is also so easy to work with and is SO sweet. I could not be more happy with our decision to go with Katherine for our wedding photos. We would truly recommend her to ANYONE."

"I can't comment enough about how much we loved having Katherine as our photographer. From the engagement session to the big day, she was professional, personal and unique. We felt comfortable and relaxed and that reflected in our photos. Katherine took time to get to know us as a couple and to understand what was important to us making sure to capture those moments perfectly. Reviewing our photos is like reliving our wedding day!"
