Hi! I'm Katherine

I am a wedding and senior portrait photographer based in Central Virginia. 

I think that a lot of people can recall a time in their lives when they've made a pivotal decision that changed everything. My pivot happened when I decided to stop being a preschool teacher and start being a full time photographer. There are a lot of things that factored into that decision that I won't bore you with. I loved teaching preschool and I was very good at it but my desire to create beautiful imagery for myself and others grew bigger than my love of my previous career.

When I photograph a high school senior and her face lights up when she sees what I've captured, when a mom has a huge smile but also a little tear as sees a photo of her child and says "I can see their personality in this picture", when a couple tells me that I captured the essence of their love so perfectly, when I deliver a gallery to a couple of their wedding day that tells the story of that day, those are the moments I love so, so much, I love make other people happy with my photography. It's very much the reason I continue on this path in this season of my life. I'd love the chance to bring a little joy to your life too!

“it's that I don't like what paper backgrounds. a woman does not live in front of white paper, she lives on the street, in a motor car, in a hotel room.”



“my new husband and I had the pleasure of working with Katherine for a couple's sessioin and she captured our big day. I want to say that she was the absolute best! She is such a friendly person to work with and very sweet. We will definitely call her for other photo sessions.”
