I first held a camera in my hands when I photographed senior portraits for a few of the kids I was mentoring. These senior sessions sparked passion in me for this art form, and as I got older and began to travel, I fell in love with the art of photography. I realized that images hold enormous power in telling stories. I wanted nothing more than to be able to capture these stories and see them come to life in front of me. Thus, Katelyn Kristine Photography was born! Now I travel across Washington State, the PNW, and beyond as a wedding and elopement photographer.
Photography is a gift I share with people like yourself. I want to capture photos at your wedding or elopement in Washington State and beyond that will bring you right back to your moment, that feeling, that person, that is so important in your story. I would count it a privilege to be your wedding photographer.
Today I am a Washington-based, though my dream is to become a traveling wedding photographer telling love stories at weddings and elopements around the world through pictures . I want to be a voice that reminds our world that there is still so much love, and so many reasons to celebrate.
If you hire me as your wedding photographer, you can expect to laugh a lot, dance, frolic, and share meaningful stories. I will undoubtedly become a big fan of your relationship and will gratefully cheer you on as you continue to adventure through life.

No matter how big or small your wedding is, this day is intimate and holy, and I consider it an honor to be the person you have chosen to document your love story.
Before I show up, we will already be friends. Once you book me as your wedding photographer, you have direct communication with me no matter what. You will receive a gift in the mail that consist of some of my favorite things just to show you how much I appreciate you. I will be as involved in the planning as you want, gladly giving you any advice or knowledge I have. We will draft your timeline together to ensure every moment you want is captured, while paying attention to the sun, weather, and any other variant you might not think about.
Throughout the whole wedding day, I will simultaneously be your photographer, your sidekick, and your cheerleader. I will be there to fluff your dress, fix your hair, and remind you to drink and breathe. I will serve as your bouncer, helping people around you remember what this day is all about. I will truly do whatever it takes to make your day perfect. In past weddings, I have remade bouquets, created playlists, hemmed bridesmaid dresses, curled hair, applied makeup, served food, and even drove the getaway car! There is literally nothing I won't do for my clients.
After the wedding, our communication doesn't end. You will get a sneak peek of photos within 24 hours and will receive a few gifts before the gallery is even delivered. I try my best to make my clients feel celebrated before, after, and beyond the wedding day.

Let's sum it up -
I am a storyteller capturing images that make you feel something.
Kate made us feel so comfortable while we took photos on our big day. We were obviously nervous and being in front of a camera is out of our comfort zone for sure! She guided us with ease and made it so much fun. We love how many quality photos we received from our special day.
Kate is an absolute JOY to work with. Not only are the pictures she creates beautiful, but she is also amazing to be around and makes you feel so relaxed in front of the camera. I recommend her to every friend/family member that needs a photographer for their wedding or special occasion and can’t wait to take more pictures with her in the future!
Katelyn is an incredibly creative and genuine human being. Her ability to create and capture people’s most authentic selves is such a gift and it shows through her photos. She came with plenty of ideas to our couple shoot, kept us moving, laughing and enjoying our time together. I can only imagine she’d be just as much as a fun and prepared professional whatever the setting. Can’t wait to have a reason to book her again!
