BOLD AS LOVE

Together, we will create magic. Photos that will become ragged round the edges and creased from being looked at and loved, time and again.

I am always thinking about what these images will mean to you 30-40 years down the road.

Each moment counts. Every single part of the rich tapestry that makes up your day. I will document these memories for you as if they were my own.

This is going to be a storybook of your wedding day from beginning to end. Every special, boring, unique, normal, traditional, batshit crazy, emotional, calm part of your day needs to be captured and in a beautiful way you'll never tire of.

All on analog film. Lovingly shot, hand-developed, scanned and gently edited by me.

It is hard to summarize everything that makes Kate awesome, but here it goes...

Kate is an astounding photographer/kind human being who captured our dream wedding and all of the special moments we now can cherish forever.

During the wedding day we hardly noticed Kate as she was so good at swooping, snapping the perfect moment, and backing off. I've been to far too many weddings where it feels like the video or photo team is guiding the wedding vibe and pacing and to me it can be a real mood killer... not with Kate.

Kate respects the event and the guests and most of all the special couple.

Do yourself a favor and do everything you can to hire her, she is simply the best.

it must be love

How do I take portraits without posing you? By finding the best light, and observing.

The just-married glow is so beautiful, and at that moment in time you’ll never have felt so in love.

It's my job to harness that in an image, so every time you flip through your wedding album you are struck with an immediate desire to hug your beloved fiercely.

Kate was an absolute blast to work with. I knew from her website that she would take amazing pictures and would be down to earth but she exceeded our expectations and then some.

She was always professional and prompt when responding to any emails or messages. On the day of our elopement she made us feel so relaxed and comfortable. She was fun and upbeat and allowed us to be ourselves. Kate took us to multiple locations at the ideal times.

She also is simply a great person which is evident from the start. We could not be happier. She went above and beyond for us. She is unique, lively, and a true artist of her field.

You can truly tell she is passionate about what she does. I could go on and on!

We love Kate.

EVERYTHING LOOKS BETTER ON ANALOG

Having been obsessed with film photography most of my life, I was overjoyed to find my couples are craving the way film looks too.

It’s a dollop of instant nostalgia and keeps the real real, acting as a time capsule of your experience decades later.

Imagine - dust from the sun hits the sensor on the camera and right there a negative is created. The very first moments of your marriage immortalized on celluloid. I think there’s a certain sort of magic with film that goes hand-in-hand with the joy of a wedding.

Plus it just looks better :)

Check out these MINI VIGNETTES from three of my couples:

NEON BONEYARD, LAS VEGAS

This pandemic elopement was planned in two weeks, during which time Julia and I bonded over a love of horses and David Bowie.

They chose the Chapel of the West for the ceremony, which to me had a real American Gothic vibe about it which was super cool. I was overjoyed to head to the Neon Boneyard for portraits, despite only having 15 minutes to shoot!

Even though most of Vegas was closed due to the pandemic I felt like the whole day was like a music video. But not a cheesy one, a cool one with the sort of people you just wish would transfer a little cool over to you. Oh and most of the guests were pro skateboarders.

They had their first baby in May 2021. I’m the lucky duck who gets to shoot their family photos, and also now call them friends.

Wedding in Sorrento Italy

If Roman Holiday were a wedding set in 2017, this would be it. Even during the mad dash through town, honking our way past the pizzerias to the medieval cloisters, I felt Katy exuded 1950’s Hepburn grace. Only with a lot more swearing.

Her mum broke her foot at the airport, and had to be carried in and out of the wedding. Even in her wheelchair, she was a cracking limbo dancer.

Katy married Steve in the most stunning little town on the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento. They got married in these medieval 14th century cloisters and as they did their grand exit the confetti thrown by their guests floated over passing tourists' heads. The history mixed with the modern so well at this historic venue.

They kept it classy to the end, when they all did the conga out of the reception venue when it closed (no matter how much they begged and bribed the DJ to keep going).

Katrina and Lawrence were so extra it hurt (my head from the cigars, music and aftershave!).

They had matching gold grills on their teeth and Lawrence actually danced down the aisle.

As they walked out, husband and wife (and Katrina’s son) they all busted out dancing to This is How We Do It.

Honestly, these people spent the entire day dancing. They did meet at dance club at school so that makes sense!

During the reception one of the guests got the 90 year old grandma dancing. Oh and the wedding party arrived on Treasure Island via cable car bus.

They even had their first look in Union Square. Does it get any more SF than that?

No matter what your dream day looks like,
I’ll help turn it into an experience that you’ll never forget.
