Working with Kate was literally a perfect experience from start to finish. First of all…she is a wonderful person inside and out. Her kindness and great attitude made taking photos (which for me can sometimes be a bit stiff) much more relaxed and fun. We had so many moments during our engagement session and even in the moments leading up to walking down the aisle where she made me laugh by saying something funny. Even better, she caught all of those moments on camera. Her photography is the absolute best in the DC area and obviously in the nation (as Martha Stewart listed her as one of the top photographers). She shoots mostly film which makes for some very beautiful, timeless shots. Many of the shots she took look like works of art that belong in a museum. She is a wonderful person and photographer. I would highly recommend her to all brides looking for a very special way to capture one of the most important days of their life!

We are so happy with how perfectly you captured the day – especially all of the emotion and love we were surrounded with. I always knew your work was amazing, but I never knew exactly how talented you are until we saw our own day unfold before your eyes. And the fact that you were able to capture so many smiles and so little sweat during the formal photos is just insane because we all remember being a little “miserable” with the DC heat!
ASHLEY AND ALEJANDRO / WASHINGTON, DC / SEPTEMBER 6, 2014
Kate was fantastic to work with leading up to and on our wedding day. She is organized, thoughtful, friendly, and amazingly gifted. I think the pictures truly showcase who we are as a couple and the way we experienced the magic of the entire day with friends, family, and each other. Kate captured our wedding beautifully (even better than I could have hoped!) and we will treasure the pictures and memories forever. We feel so fortunate to have had Kate as our photographer.
NICOLE AND DAN / COUNTRY CLUB OF YORK, PA / SEPTEMBER 7, 2013
“There aren’t enough words or ways to thank you for the gorgeous photos of our wedding day. You are truly gifted at what you do. Not only are you an outstanding talent, you are a beautiful person, and so wonderful to be around. Our friends and family have said they have never seen such beautiful photography. I feel so lucky you captured our wedding.”
LINDSAY AND TYSON / ALEXANDRIA, VA / MAY 1, 2010
“My husband and I were so lucky to have Kate document our wedding in a way that reflected who we are and how we felt on that occasion. We chose to hire Kate because we were confident that she could capture the magic of the day and we were more than please with the outcome! We treasure our hundreds of beautiful, unique images and the albums they came in. Kate is a pleasure to work with and her talent for film photography is unsurpassed in Washington.”
EMILY AND HIRAM / WASHINGTON, DC / MAY 7, 2011
“I don’t know how to fully express my gratitude. I don’t know what I would’ve done without you. Thank you so much for going above and beyond on absolutely everything. The wedding feels like a dream—then I look at our photos and realize it wasn’t. You’re the best. Thank you for being you!”
ALISON AND CHRIS / WASHINGTON, DC / APRIL 15, 2010
“Words cannot even begin to describe the level of joy Kate has brought us with everything she has done throughout our wedding experience. From the engagement session—which was more like a nice afternoon outing with a friend(!)—to our wedding photography and Super 8 film… everything was absolute perfection and exceeded our highest expectations. The style and quality of her photos cannot be matched. Additionally, Kate was such a pleasure to work with and made the process simple, all the way to the delivery of our beautiful wedding album box. She was so responsive to the constant, urgent emails of an ever nervous bride, and made sure to accommodate all our wishes for the wedding day—even though we know they made her job a little more stressful!! I know Kate wants for nothing more than a couple to be absolutely thrilled with her work and she certainly hit the mark with us. We would recommend her to any bride (and groom!) looking for timeless, amazing photos of their wedding. Thanks, Kate.”
LIBBY AND LOUIS / WASHINGTON, DC / JUNE 15, 2012
“Thank you so much for the incredible photos. I knew the moment we first started talking that we shared the same vision, but to see the final outcome was amazing. You did such a beautiful job and we’re so thrilled to have these gorgeous wedding memories.”
JANELLE AND TIM / GLEN ECHO PARK, MD / JULY 3, 2010
“THANK YOU for the most wonderful photography. I am taken back by seeing everything again, and of course the whole wedding and our bride and groom. Your work is simply outstanding! You captured so many special and precious moments, and Kent and I are THRILLED with the results. You have such a special gift, Kate, and you have made this family so very happy and grateful.”
MINDY ENGELMEIER, MOTHER OF THE BRIDE / WASHINGTON, DC
“Kate transformed the happiest day of our lives into a gorgeous memory that we will always treasure. Each snapshot tells a story and each story makes us smile. Kate is able to capture moments in life with an effortless elegance that is all her own. She is a true talent and an incredible artist.”
CAITLIN AND SHEA / LEESBURG, VA / OCTOBER 15, 2011
“Kate is the best. From our first meeting until well after she delivered our photos, she was a dream to work with. She is the type of person you actually want to hang out with at your wedding because she is so easy to get along with, which was especially important to us in choosing a wedding photographer. Most of the time, we forgot she was even there but when we needed her to take charge and get the formal shots moving, she was really on top of things!
We could not have asked for more. And then there were the photos! There was a hurricane on our wedding day, which was obviously stressful, but she kept her cool, which helped us keep our cool. I have no idea how she pulled it off, but our photos are absolutely stunning and better than we could have imagined, even if it had been a perfectly sunny day. We’ve gotten so many compliments (even from complete strangers!) that it is almost overwhelming. Sometimes I think about how our photos COULD have turned out if we had not chosen Kate to capture our day and it terrifies me. She is definitely a must have!”
KELLY AND MARK / SHERWOOD FOREST, MD / APRIL 30, 2011
“Kate was so great to work with, and I love her unique approach to photography. Her pictures are absolutely gorgeous, and I am so pleased with her work. She gave us pictures that ranged from very beautiful and artistic while also taking time to do the family photos too. I love our pictures and would recommend her to anyone.”
ABBY AND JAMEY / PUERTA VALLARTA, MEXICO / OCTOBER 30, 2009
“Working with Kate was without a doubt one of the best decisions we made surrounding our special day. Her immense talent and warm demeanor made her an absolute delight to work with, and we could not be more please with the beautiful work she did for us. It was very important to us that our photographer capture not just images from our wedding, but the real spirit and energy of that day. Kate absolutely did that for us. Every time we look at our photos, we are transported back to the magical feeling of our day and all its beautiful, special moments. We are so grateful we were able to work with Kate and simply cannot recommend her highly enough.”
