What's important to you:

  • You’re excited to see everyone in one place! Lizzy will be having friends from all walks of life attend and Will is excited to see his friends’ parents that have felt like a second family. Having candids with the people that matter most is a priority to you. 
  • You are looking forward to seeing the raw moments of the reception captured.
  • Will doesn’t like feeling like the center of attention, so having some fly on the wall candids will help him feel more comfortable.
  • The water feels like home to Lizzy. You want the beauty of your venue highlighted in your gallery.

"we are awkward.
But my, oh, my – Kate worked her magic!!"

- Margi and James, Bride and Groom

 

 

“After flipping through her galleries and blogs, I remember thinking there is no way our photos can turn out this good…we are awkward. But my, oh, my – Kate worked her magic!!… My then-fiancé and I were transformed from two relatively camera-shy individuals to a couple just genuinely enjoying loving on each other while a friend takes a snap.”

– Margi and James, 2019 Bride and Groom

Their wedding was featured on the cover of Baltimore Weddings!

Capture what you value.

I provide a tailored experience.

Confession: I kinda hate small talk. I’m someone that wants to dive in with people – cut right to the heart. I love capturing weddings because they are a window into documenting the intimacy and delicate intricacies of relationships. With a camera in hand, I can engage in something so meaningful.

Leading up to your wedding, I will take the time to get to know you to better understand what matters to you. Every wedding is different, because everyone is different. By building a more personal relationship, I have space to engage in your wedding day – empathy first. With 11 years of experience as a wedding photographer and more than 250 weddings captured, you can count on me to guide you through the day with comfort and ease. The end result? A gorgeous photo–that you can feel.

I believe the best art is made in collaboration.

I provide intentional communication to prepare for your day.

Your experience is everything. It’s not just the wedding, it’s the entire season of planning, dreaming and bringing to life a vision with the one you love. The best art is made in collaboration. With your planner taking charge of the logistical and design intricacies, we can dedicate our undivided attention to capturing the essence of your event. I will work with you and your planner as needed so you can fully immerse yourselves in the joy of your wedding day. And have the photos to prove it.

It's more than pretty pictures.

Regardless of how gorgeous the images turn out, you’re going to remember how you felt in those moments. That’s why I’ll make sure we craft an enjoyable and stress-free experience together, that meets you exactly where you are. I’ll help you do breathing exercises to keep you two in the present moment, make space for you to be as vulnerable as you would be within the walls of your home, and let you slip into a world where you’ll forget I’m there.

I let the moment naturally happen.

After delivering a gallery to my couples, I always smile when I learn which images are their favorites. It’s almost always a moment I captured from just being patient and intuitive. The best moments are the ones that happen naturally. I will be there to provide guidance when you need it, and also hold back from directing a moment when appropriate–so you can fully, experience the day.

The best moments—the ones you’re going to want to remember—are the ones where you are present and soaking in how you got here. I’ll honor those moments without interference, while capturing it for you.

I'm here TO CAPTURE SOMETHING NEW.

You don’t want copy, paste poses we’re here to capture something new. 

Somewhere along the line, “candids” became fake laughter, directed moments, and uncomfy posing cues – photographers recreating the same images with every couple. HARD PASS. Let’s do what comes naturally to you and amplify your love and the fun you’re already having. Most of the day will be captured through true, unstaged micro-moments. Then, during portraits, I will gently guide you to look your best and probably throw out fun and sentimental suggestions just to get your unique reaction.

Psst! If you’re interested, we can even get artsy and experiment a little.

I'm selective about the individuals I choose for my team.

My spouse and I have collaborated on 110 weddings, establishing an unparalleled trust that I extend to you for your special day. Should your event necessitate additional photographers, rest assured that I am selective, prioritizing those whose portfolios I genuinely admire, rather than merely fulfilling contractual obligations with any available individual.

I believe your story expands beyond the two of you.

I am inspired by the little moments that tell big stories.

Throughout your wedding day, there are micro-stories happening all around you. When you look through your gallery, there will be blissfully familiar moments and others that you get to experience for the first time. You’ll be able to feel the shoulder squeeze of your grandma and hear the laughter between your siblings.

Let’s tell the entire story of your wedding day as fully as it was lived.

“THERE ARE SO MANY SPECIAL MOMENTS THAT WE DIDN’T EVEN KNOW EXISTED CAPTURED SO BEAUTIFULLY.”

The Kate Ann Photography Experience

GETTING BOOKED

A client of mine once said, “This is more than just taking pictures. You’re inviting someone to share one of the biggest days in your life and to capture it just as you’ve imagined.” And that is exactly why it’s SO important you connect with my work and we connect as people! If we’re the right fit you’ll secure your day via a contract and $2000 retainer.

CELEBRATING YOUR FIANCÉ ERA

Your engagement session is a chance to slow down and linger in this brief part of your life together (before you know it you’ll be married). The plan is to go somewhere beautiful, have an incredibly fun time, and stir up the butterflies that led to the love you have today! Throughout the session you’ll find an ease in front of my lens that will make your wedding day photographs feel like second nature.

DISCOVERING WHAT MATTERS

About 3 months before your date, I will check in to help you and your planner to create a photography timeline that reflects your priorities, values, and how you want to spend your day. Then I will send you your wedding questionnaire! This fills me in on special expectations, family dynamics, details that are meaningful to you, and what you want out of your photographs. Your answers will set the foundation of how to capture who you are in the most genuine way possible.

WE TELL YOUR STORY

Your day is here!! I can’t wait to see your vision come to life and spend the day telling you how bomb you two look together! I’ll be in the wings documenting the day as it unfolds, making family photos a breeze, and gently guiding you through your portraits. When you can, catch your breath and take in all the little details and glowing faces around you. You made all of this possible.

NOSTALGIA SETS IN

It’s hard to believe it’s over! Don’t worry, I will send you a preview gallery 1-2 weeks after your wedding day so you can begin to reminisce. And truly there is no preparing you for the full extent of emotions that comes with receiving your gallery in color and black & white. These photos will be an everlasting reminder of the love surrounding you. The love that makes this life worth-while.

“Kate’s natural talent to envelope the viewer into a beautiful world from her photos alone is magical & priceless.

What I enjoy about Kate is her ability to effortlessly capture intimate moments that not only visually, but emotionally transport me to one of the happiest days of my life. I personally have an anxiousness that makes it hard for me to relax in general, let alone in front of a camera, but her gentle presence somehow coaxed from me an album’s worth of authentically beautiful memories of my day. AND I had fun!!!”

LEANNA LENAE ELLIOTT

I don't even know where to begin-BOOK KATE!!! My now husband and I began following Kate on instagram about 2 years before we even got engaged and knew from her photos that we HAD to have her capture our day! Because of Kate's photojournalist style, we are able to look at a picture she captured and it brings us right back to the exact emotion we were feeling when she took the picture (everything she got was so authentic and candid and truly grabbed the love and party that our day was)!

Kiersten & Evan

"This was our first professional photography experience, so we didn’t quite know what to expect. We surely thought it would be super awkward! However, when upon meeting Kate Ann, this was not the case. She was super chill, easy going, and accommodating. This made the hour of pictures fly by! During the wedding Kate Ann, her second photographer, and assistant killed it. They had such a long day, but never stopped smiling and looking for the best shots possible. They were fun, yet professional and helped ensure our night was nothing but the best. After months of wedding planning and scouring dozens of photographers, we couldn’t have been happier with Kate Ann and all of her photos! She accurately captured the best night of our lives and made it look easy!"

Ashley & John

"She made us feel so comfortable and natural in front of the camera and she brings the best vibes. You can tell how passionate she is about creating beautiful images and capturing the most special moments of your wedding day! I can not recommend her enough!"

Carlie & Chris

"She made me feel at ease throughout the entire planning process. She scoped out the absolutely BEST locations and lighting for pictures and they turned out better than I could have ever imagined. I have gotten so many compliments on how amazing and beautiful our pictures look and that is a testament to Kate's creative eye and unbelievable editing skills. You will NOT regret going with Kate as your photographer!"

Courtney & Scott

"The day of our wedding, she was with us every step of the way, and we could not have been happier with the results. Our reception and ceremony were both at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, which gave us enough time for extensive portraits with my wife and myself. Kate made sure we got our “must have” group photos, portrait sessions, and managed to capture fantastic candids of so many of our guests.

We are thrilled with her adventurous performance, double exposure portrait, creative choices when directing us, and of course her fantastic professionalism and kindness."

Gaby & Liam

"It becomes clear from the moment you meet Kate: her number one priority is capturing the photos and moments that her clients will resonate with. She makes a concentrated effort to get to know the people that she is photographing and what makes them “tick” – it is this extra thoughtfulness that allows her to totally personalize the experience and deliver the best ever end result – beautiful images."

Haley & Maurice

"Kate perfectly captured our wedding and we are absolutely obsessed with all of our pictures. Do not hesitate to book with her! She is very professional while making us and everyone we were with very comfortable. During the reception, I barely even noticed she was there, but she captured some of my favorite photos of the night. She is quick to respond, and happy to meet with you to ensure your vision is captured. Not to mention her edits of our photos were BEAUTIFUL!

Basically, you should just book with her, you won't regret it!"

Jessica & Mike

"I don’t even know where to begin on how amazing Kate is. Every step of the journey she was right there with creative, artistic, and non-intrusive ideas. She values who each couple is at their core, honors them, and truly cares to know you and the desires that you want for one of the biggest days of your life.

She is a light, fun, and TALENTED. Our final product was so much more than I could have ever dreamed of."

Kaleia & Alex

From the moment I saw Kates work I knew she perfectly aligned with my wedding day vision. Kate shot our engagement shoot and made us feel so comfortable that we had a great time doing so. We were ecstatic with our engagement photos which made us even more excited for our wedding photos then before. Kate is a gifted photographer. She is extremely talented, knowledgeable and skillful in all aspects of her job. Once confirming her for our day she sent an in depth wedding photo packet that was helpful to review for small questions that arose. The day of photo questionnaire she compiled was very thorough to put our minds at ease for the day of. She was always prompt in her arrivals. Her photography skills from finding the "perfect" light, creating a beautiful couple/landscape composition and her photo filters and edits have all exceeded our expectations. Kate, Thank you for capturing our day so we can share our story for years to come.

Karleigh & Tony

"We had the best experience working with Kate. We had a destination wedding so the wedding planning experience was a bit trickier to normal, however working with Kate was so easy! She produced the most stunning pictures and I have people constantly asking who my photographer was. She is very enjoyable to be around and helped encourage my husband and I to have a fun time while taking our photos (we were a bit nervous)! I, myself, had a few wedding day mishaps. I sprained my ankle the evening before the wedding and could barely walk the day of the wedding. I also came down with a stomach bug on wedding day. So unfortunately I was not feeling my best self, but Kate was great in helping me feel like a beautiful bride. Her photos do no show anything but the happiness and excitement my husband I felt that day!"

Kasey & Matt

Kate was AMAZING!! Our engagement and wedding photos came out beyond our expectations!! She captured amazing shots and made us look so good. Kate was super creative with shots and clearly knows how to find the right lighting! Also Kate was so easy to work with and endlessly joyful! My now-husband and I are not usually super comfortable in front of the camera, but she always put us at ease! We HIGHLY recommend her!!

Maria & Stirling

"Kate was an absolute dream to work with. Her warm and bubbly demeanor was disarming and made us feel like we were working with an old friend. She knew exactly how to capture the right moment and helped us capture photos that we will cherish forever. Our wedding was at the George Peabody Library on one of the rainiest days we had ever seen. She was an absolute trooper! She kept positive and helped us power through the storm and keep a smile on our faces for what could've been a disastrous day! Thank you Kate!"

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?

Take it from my past clients. They describe my style as: artistic, organic, timeless, cozy, emotional, and grounding. Those vibes come from my photojournalistic approach and creative portraiture, complemented by true to color edits.

HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?

To book your date, I require a signed contract and a $2000 retainer. I can only hold your date after I have received both. (Though I wish I could clone myself and photograph multiple celebrations a day!)

DO WE NEED A PLANNER?

I’m more than happy to help with your custom photography timeline and vendor recommendations, but having a dedicated planner is truly invaluable! In order for me and my team to be able to focus on taking images and documenting your story well, you will need a wedding planner.

SHOULD WE DO AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?

An engagement session serves as a time for you to warm up in front of the lens and for us to get to know each other! We can visit one of your favorite spots or I can help you pick one. Engagement sessions include a location within a 45 mile radius of the 21043 zip. But I love traveling and can create a custom quote for your engagement session if you want to wander!

WHEN SHOULD WE SCHEDULE OUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION?

It’s best to schedule your engagement session roughly 2-3 months ahead of time. Keep in mind, if you’re using these images for Save the Dates, then we need to schedule your session at least 8-9 months before the big day! I offer engagement sessions from Monday to Thursday.

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED? DO YOU TRAVEL?

I am currently located in the Maryland and Washington D.C. area. I am passport-ready to go anywhere!

DO WE NEED A second PHOTOGRAPHER?

Adding extra cameras to your day can sometimes make it feel like you’re being followed by paparazzi – so I do my best to keep the intimacy of your day intact by being as unobtrusive as possible. But if you do add a second shooter, it means we can capture even more moments and details. They are a great addition to your day if you’re not doing a first look, have more than 120 guests, or if I have to be in two places at once.

HOW DO I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?

Your digital high-resolution edited photographs will be delivered via an online gallery where you can download the images and share them with family/friends. You will also receive a printing release for personal use of the images. This allows you to print the images at any photo lab of your choice and use the images online.

CAN I GIVE YOU A SHOT LIST?

For your family/friend formals, yes absolutely! For the rest of your photos, I ask you to fill out an in-depth questionnaire to help me understand your values and what matters most to you, so I can authentically document your day as it naturally unfolds.

Can you sign a contract with my parent?

For legal reasons, I only sign contracts and communicate with my wedding couple to help bring your vision to life.  I’ve found this best preserves everyone’s wedding day experience. I am also happy to communicate with your wedding planner in regards to your day.

“KATE PIVOTED WITH EASE AND ALLOWED US TO FEEL CALM, HAPPY, AND PRESENT ON OUR WEDDING DAY.

Her unique style and intimate connection with couples was what drew me to book her in the first place, and that emotion clearly comes through in the photos she captured.”
