Let yourself be silently drawn by the 
strange pull of what you really love. 

IT WILL NOT LEAD YOU ASTRAY.

ABOUT ME

photographer herself, constantly took photos of my brother and me. CONSTANTLY. She has bins and bins of photographs of us. Photographs of us that I LOVE looking at every chance I get when I'm visiting her. You see she realized something I didn't: that memories can fade and children can grow quickly, but photographs are forever. Something as simple as a picture can evoke so many feelings that cannot be created by anything else. This realization hit me my first year in college. Right before I joined, or “ran away to” as some would say, the circus. After joining I couldn't take enough photos. THE LIGHT that was created for shows, the learning curve with working with the light and fast moving performances, all reinforced a dream, no a mission, that I threw myself into. Photography.

Most photographers have their “story” of how they started. It's been their dream since they were little or ever since they picked up their first camera they knew they were going to be a photographer. I would love to tell you that were the same case for me, but it's not. I hated photography growing up. My mother, who is a wonderful

If you're a super planner or a let's see how the wind blows kind of person I'm your girl. I am here for you. 

      The bits and pieces you know you want preserved and the bits and pieces of laughter, crying, expressions, and epic dance moves that go unplanned and happen naturally. These moments will become memories and there's no better way to preserve them then to have them photographed so you can look back on them for years to come and have that joyous feeling wash over you again.

      I’ve always loved learning and as I’ve grown in this industry there’s been a learning curve about photographing a wedding day. I've learned that it's important to tell your story. Your whole story. It’s in my couple’s best interest to have your whole day documented. The details, getting ready, ceremony, portraits, reception, and exit are all necessary to complete your story. Besides a planner your photographer is with you throughout your whole wedding day and as your photographer I want to build a relationship with you and your spouse so that when the big day comes the stress is lessened and you have another person you trust by your side. It's important to me that I do the best that I can to make the wedding yours and that all starts by getting to know you.
     
     Do all weddings last the same length of time? No. However, over the years, I have found that I need a minimum of six hours to be able to document your wedding properly. Most couples choose to have eight hours of coverage. If you're not sure you can definitely contact me and we can discuss what amount is right for your day.       
   

Wedding Collections Start at $2000

I do not usually use a second shooter. Depending on how big your wedding is and what your thoughts are I may use a second shooter. If I do use one they shoot in the same style as I do. That way the unique style is consistent throughout all of your wedding photos. A second shooter will be an add-on to your wedding package.

do you have a second shooter?

I cannot hold dates since other couples may inquire about the same date and may be ready to book. Dates can only be reserved with your retainer fee and a signed contract. 

can you hold our date?

Yes! Although my main focus is with weddings I have experience photographing graduation portraits and live events. Since I live in a college town there's always students graduating each semester. Contact me and we can review what you're interested in!

Do you photograph any other genres?

Yes! I love traveling! Traveling for a wedding is decided on a case by case basis. I'd love to hear where you're from! :)

SENIORS

Working at a University I see hard working students day in and day out. Students with so much potential and passion to learn what they love and want to do with their lives. It's always an honor to celebrate with a fellow Alumni as they close out this chapter in their lives. I want to show that excitement and that pride through photographs that you can keep forever and look back on all that you've accomplished. You deserve it!

Here's my thing with graduations: I LOVE them. I know, it's strange, who the hell likes sitting in some auditorium for several hours watching people walk across a stage? This weirdo! You've worked your butt off to get a degree, something you love and dedicated the past 4+ years of your life to. You're about to start a new chapter in your life and it's SO AWESOME!  That in itself is so inspiring!

Florida State University's campus is huge. You've spent that last 4+ years here, heck you've probably spent a lot of time at other places throughout Tallahassee. You made memories here. I believe I would be doing a disservice to you if I limited you to a strict time limit for your photos. We can go wherever you want on campus. Studied and spent time somewhere else? let me know! This time and these photos are for YOU. I get the best pictures when you're comfortable and not rushed. Let's celebrate together :)

Senior Collections Start at $250

I can only hold a date with a retainer fee ($60) and a signed contract. Tons of students graduate each semester and I'll need to make 100% sure which dates and times are blocked off.

can you hold my date?

Yes! You don't need a cap and gown to take photos (though it's totally cool if you borrow from a friend). 

I'm not walking, can you still take my photos?

Absolutely! This is 100% okay and I would love to meet
your family :)

can i bring my family?

Kaitlin is a consummate professional in every sense of the word. Her attention to detail teamed with her creativity leaves nothing to be desired. She captured every moment we wanted to capture and then some. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to have beautiful photos taken. Thank you Kaitlin!

She's great at taking pictures and the final end product was better than expected. She's great to work with and easily adjusts everything according to customer preferences. Keep up the great work!
