Meet Kate

The important stuff:

  • I have been photographing families & weddings full-time for ten years

  • I shoot with a Canon 5D Mk III camera & a variety of prime & L-Glass lenses

  • I backup my photos automatically (twice!) when uploading your photos & shoot all sessions on dual memory cards to keep images as safe as possible

  • I have a 5 star rating on Yelp with over 70 reviews (be sure to check out the filtered reviews) & am currently among Yelp’s top three San Diego photographers

  • I bring professional grade backup equipment to every shoot

  • I co-host a podcast on photography & business topics called PhotoSpark

  • I am punctual. Like, ridiculously so. I can almost guarantee that wherever our session is (short of your home), I will be there before you :)

The fun stuff:

  • I have been with my husband for 13 years (married for 8). We have 2 kids, Grayson born 8/21/16 & our Christmas Eve baby, Madelyn, born 12/24/18. We are also parents to our golden retriever, Clover, and our calico kitty, Paisley

  • The two of us have been to 34 countries together spanning across parts of Europe, Asia, Africa, and Central America

  • I am a third-generation graduate of SDSU

  • I thoroughly embrace hipster culture even though I know I’m probably far too old for it. #craftbeerandrecordplayers

  • My deep love for Justin Timberlake carried over from my middle school days & I just can’t seem to shake it

  • I can’t chew gum in bathrooms

  • When I like a song, I can literally listen to it on repeat. For like… months. My husband makes fun of me for it. (Current situation? The entire Greatest Showman Soundtrack!)

  • Friends is the BEST television show EVER made. Reference it (especially Chandler’s “photo smile”) and you’ve made a friend for life. Runners up include The Office and Parks & Rec (um, hi there Chris Pratt!)
