I’m Kate

A Portland-based wedding photographer

Hey there! I’ve been serving my clients in the Greater Portland area as a professional photographer since 2019, and have documented over 50 weddings here in the Pacific Northwest.

I believe that photography is an art process designed to show the best parts of you. My goal with photography is to embrace and showcase the natural beauty of others. I am confident in posing all body types and cultivating an environment where people look and feel their best.

All people are beautiful, and it is an absolute joy to display your natural beauty through my photography.

When I’m not behind my camera, you can often find me drinking tea, learning new business skills, hanging out with my family and friends and church community, listening to a random conglomeration of music, and designing websites.

I look forward to connecting with you!

My Journey

My love for photos started early

Growing up, my mom was an art teacher, and I had the privilege of learning almost every major art form from her.

Photography fascinated me. I loved how there was always something new and interesting that I could learn, and how my photos were able to bring people so much joy.

In 2019, I started my business

To date, I’ve been honored to document over 50 weddings and 100+ portrait sessions. It has been a joy to capture so many memories!


While running my business, I attended college full-time. I now hold several completed degrees.

Business Management Bachelor’s of Science
Oregon State University

Several Associate’s of Science in Business-related fields
Mt Hood Community College
