I'm a photographer based out of Mammoth Lakes, California-just 40-ish minutes away from Yosemite National Park. If I'm not in my office, you can usually find me adventuring with my handsome husband, Kaleb, fur babies Fred (a black Labrador) + Rush (a German Shorthaired Pointer). I have a deep love for the CA Eastern Sierra + feel so lucky to call them home.
My photography style is very laid back + authentic. I strive to photograph the little fleeting in between moments. My goal is to tell a story every single time I pick up a camera whether it's to tell an epic love story for the wildly in love, document an addition to the family. or tell the story of our public lands + the wildlife that inhabits them.

hello there, i'm Katherine but my friends call me Katie!

intimate weddings and elopements for adventurous souls, free people, and the ones who take the road less traveled

Alejandra

"Katherine is a gem! My fiancé and I had never had professional photos taken prior to having our engagement shoot with Katherine and she made the experience so fun and easy. She is so sweet and made us feel super comfortable in front of the camera. Most importantly her work is beautiful. Katherine is great at capturing special moments and I love her creativity when it comes to poses and making the best out of the location. Overall, it was a great experience!"

Sonia

"Katherine is a wonderful photographer not only does she makes you feel so comfortable but her vibe was so amazing my fiancé and i are very grateful to find her , she let us do as many outfit changes as we wanted and even our fur baby was in the shoot, highly recommended and also the eye that she has to photograph is beyond crazy!!!! Thank you Katherine 💛"

Kaleb

"Katherine went above and beyond to capture our dream proposal at Taft Point in Yosemite National Park! She took outstanding photos of us and helped make sure she was surprised to the very last moment! Cannot say how happy we are with how our photos came out! Best photography experience I have ever had!"

Shawna

"Katherine captured my surprise proposal and she did NOT disappoint!! The pictures are absolutely beautiful and I will cherish them for the rest of my life. I cannot thank her enough for being there. ♥️ She is also the sweetest person ever!!"

I'm not the type of photographer who simply snaps a photo then delivers a gallery. If you are looking for a photographer who is passive + hands off then I don't thing that we will be a good fit. It's my top priority to get to know you so that I can create images that are true to you and tell your unique story.

As soon as you book me as your wedding or elopement photographer, you can officially call me your third wheel. I will wear many hats throughout your wedding day and planning process. You can consider me your friend, sounding board to bounce ideas off of, hype woman, personal coffee delivery service, boutonniere pinner, wedding dress bustler, bridal party herder, location scout, and so much more. Most importantly, I am there to celebrate YOU and your love because I am on your team 110% of the way!

The number one thing that you need to know about me is that I genuinely care about you + strive to do all I can to serve you + ensure that your big day runs as smoothly as possible.

consider me your official third wheel
