“Do you want to feel magazine worthy and have a blast doing it? Hire Katy! Katy was very professional, yet also down to earth. Sessions with her are basically just a hike with a friend. I was nervous at our first shoot, but once I met her I immediately relaxed as she led us through the whole process. Not only did she do a beautiful job capturing our big day, but she practically directed it as well. She planned the times for us all to be there, told everyone where to stand, and motioned to Dad and me when to walk down the "aisle." I love that she specializes in intimate elopements, because I've always known I wanted something small and bonus points to her for being willing to hike up a mountain for us!

Right now I have more stunning pictures than I know what to do with, but I count that as a blessing. Thanks so much Katy, Dave and I both feel lucky to have been your clients! Our day would not have been the same without you.”

“This recommendation is LONG overdue, but better late than never... right? If you are looking for an amazing photographer, look no further. Katy is amazing in every sense of the word. My husband and and I used Katy for our engagement and wedding photos. She was able to capture the organic candid moments I was hoping for and was also able to make the poised sessions fun and comfortable. Through the entire process Katy was understanding, flexible, and reliable. Katy was ALWAYS available to answer my questions and address my concerns. We now consider Katy a friend and look forward to working with her as often as possible in the future. I would highly recommend using Katy for your special occasion.” - Caroline

“Katy handled all of our engagement and wedding photography needs. She was engaged, responsive and an ultimate professional. We could not have asked for a better experience. She works hard to know you personally and to capture organic moments without the posed manufactured look. We enjoyed every part of our experience with her and cannot recommend enough.” - Luke

My husband and I had an anniversary session with Katy and she completely blew us away! From her friendly approach, to how she helped us pose (so we weren't left to our own awkward ways), to the way she kept the session fun and creative - it was a treat. When we received our gallery, photo after photo had us exclaiming, "This one is my new favorite! No, this one is!" Each photo was a memory sweeter than the last. I'm so grateful to have these photos that capture the deep love we have for one another in a way we don't often get to see from the outside. If you're looking for a photographer who will help capture you naturally, beautifully and creatively, Katy is your gal!!”

Coby & Gretchen

“We couldn't have picked a better photographer for our wedding! Katy was super organized, on time and had TONS of helpful hints and suggestions! The photos turned out amazing! I definitely recommend her for any event/outing/occasion you're thinking of getting a photographer for!”

Kayla & Aaron

“Katy is amazing! She was so helpful from the moment that I booked her for our wedding. She gave me great vendor recommendations, she talked me through wedding timelines and helped me really relax because it was clear I could trust her judgement and experience. She was very personable and cared so much about our day, and was very responsive anytime I reached out with a question. I was so blown away by the pictures she captured. She really told the story of our day and captured every emotion so beautifully!

Our first look was so special, and I credit her to taking such care of those sweet moments for us - and capturing it all in such a stunning way. She felt like a side-kick, friend, and photographer on our wedding day, and we couldn't have possibly been any happier with the outcome. I'll recommend her over and over again!”

Celeste & Nate

“Katy was absolutely amazing to work with!!! She was able to make everyone feel super comfortable while taking pictures! She also put up with our dog running away (during engagement) and barking (during wedding!)! The only downside was WE LOVED EVERY SINGLE PHOTO!!!!! We now have to have 150 pages in our wedding album because we REALLY narrowed down our favorites! I would highly recommend her to anyone for your photo needs!”

Renita & Nate

"Take a look at Katy’s blog and see for yourself the creativity and beauty she creates. Then do yourself a favor and hire her without further thought! From our very first email, up until our goodbye the night of our wedding I kept thinking, “How did we get so lucky with such a lovely photographer?!” Katy pours her entire being into her job and I can guarantee she will go above and beyond to make sure you are taken care of. From prompt responses over the phone, to meeting with me to discuss details, to checking in multiple times in the months prior to the wedding, etc. Not only is she a skilled professional, but she also has the sweetest, caring personality. I truly felt that we as a couple were Katy’s only priority (I won’t kid myself, we’re not THAT special) but by gosh she will make you feel that way. If you haven’t already gathered, I highly, highly recommend Katy!"

Lizzy & Rob

“It was such a pleasure to have Katy photograph our wedding. It was raining on and off at our outdoor venue and she was completely prepared for everything the day threw at us. Katy was also incredibly amazing at helping us stay relaxed and comfortable while she was taking our photos. The photos we got were perfect and captured our day exactly as it happened. We highly recommend booking Katy for your wedding. I really don’t think we could have made a better choice!”

Matt & Bethany

"We LOVED having Katy as our wedding photographer this past October! She's lovely, both as a professional and as a person. Her work is absolutely stunning and we knew our own photos would be no different! You can tell that Katy loves what she does and throws her whole heart into every wedding. We never felt like just another one of her couples. She helped us nail down a timeline very early on, and answered our multitude of questions without even batting an eye.

On wedding day, she was amazing, laid-back and professional! She kept everything about our photos completely stress-free - even while wrangling bridal party and managing timeline issues when things ran late. She took beautiful bridal and getting ready photos. We had a first look and the whole event was exactly what we could hope, getting to share a special moment together beforehand, but having moments to capture it. She was able to get the family formals done quickly and efficiently so that our family could get back to the party as fast as possible, while we took a few more by ourselves. During the reception, she did a fabulous job of capturing all the dancing and special moments which were extremely important to us, as my husband and I first met at a dance.

Upon receiving our photos, every single one turned out perfect and we could not possibly be happier with her and her work! Do yourself a favor and hire her! She's incredible."

Caroline & Joe

"I cannot recommend Katy enough. She is not only a skilled photographer but she is an incredible person. Katy was one of the very few photographers that I spoke with that actually made me feel like my time was important. I did not feel like our wedding was just another wedding in her books; Katy cares about what she does and truly cares about her clients and takes time to get to know you as a couple. From having to move our wedding day at the last second to a bee crawling up my dress during my bridal shots, she was with us every step of the way! She was always patient and flexible in any way that she could be!!! Any questions that I had were always answered promptly and professionally and I was never left questioning or confused. During our wedding Katy was prepared and prompt. She made sure leading up to the wedding that all of my concerns were addressed and communicated with me about every little detail to make sure it went smoothly. Our wedding pictures came out better than I could’ve ever dreamed and I was left speechless!!! There Is not a single photo that I dislike in our entire gallery that we received! Katy’s style and editing is amazing and she is always open to suggestions. In fact, she incorporated pretty much every single one of the poses I had put on my Pinterest board!! I will be able to cherish this memory for the rest of my life thanks to Katy capturing it so perfectly! All in all I would recommend Katy to anyone; do not hesitate to book her for your wedding or special moment!!! Thank you Katy!”

Alexis & John Michael

"We absolutely loved Katy for our wedding photographer! She was just as excited about taking our pictures as we were. She loves what she does and is wonderful at it! She was easy to work with throughout the entire process leading up to our wedding. During the wedding, she was clear with directing everyone where they needed to be and made everything run smoothly. I would recommend her to anyone!"

Josh & Holly

"So glad we chose Katy as our wedding photographer. Our wedding was on Roan Mountain and she hiked up there a few days before the wedding to scope out some good spots for photos, which was really helpful for us. She was very accommodating and helped to make the experience more enjoyable. We couldn't be happier with the pictures we've seen so far. We definitely recommend her!"

Laken & Wayne

"Katy did an amazing job this past year on my wedding! I loved all my pictures! Anyone looking for a photographer with a unique style with great picture quality and who is easy to work with, I would definitely recommend Katy! She did a great job catching all the little details of my wedding. I've had many compliments from friends and family about my wedding pictures! Thanks so much Katy!"


Amanda & Kenny

"HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Katy went above and beyond what we expected to capture our wedding day and give us wonderful pictures to look back on for years to come.

Katy was professional and great to work with throughout the whole wedding planning process. Despite the rainy forecast on our wedding day, Katy kept everything on track and helped tremendously with the timeline of the day. She had great attention to detail and thought of so many things I did not. She was clear in her communication and keeping us informed every step of the way.

She had a great calmness that allowed my (now) husband and I to feel so comfortable in front of the camera, which is no easy feat.

She did a wonderful job editing our photos and still managed to deliver them in a timely manner."
