The two biggest things I give every couple: creative photos, and a calm, personal experience. Making sure you actually have fun at your own wedding and aren’t posing for photos all day is the most important thing. If you like the idea of wedding photos that aren't just “wedding photos” and are more about emotion, quirkiness, and your personalities rather than perfection, we're probably going to get along.
How I cater to Offbeat Brides
Every couple is different, and I’m never going to show up to your wedding like it’s “just another wedding.” I learn about what’s important to you, and what matters most when it comes to your photos and the experience of your day. I stay out of the way and shoot candidly most of the time, except for the times you need me. I’ve shot all kinds of weddings and always want to do what makes you happiest, because that’s what matters most. The focus is on balancing getting you the best photos possible with letting you have an awesome time at your own wedding–so no standing around for hours on end posing awkwardly. Portraits of the two of you will be chill, and will feel more like you’re just hanging out rather than having a big cheesy photo shoot (honestly most couples tell me they’re un-photogenic, and you wouldn’t be able to tell from their photos!). And all of my collections are custom, because I don’t believe in just sending you a list of options that might not work for you.
I’m also super supportive in the time leading up to your wedding, and on your wedding day-having a calm photographer is something most couples appreciate on a day that can be very hectic. I’m always there to answer questions, create your photo timeline, and generally just be someone you can rely on for advice.
I’m LGBTQ friendly and love working with anyone who has a good soul (and a good sense of humor)!
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME:
Hey! I’m Kathleen, and I’m a Connecticut wedding photographer who shoots all over the tristate area, Hudson Valley, and beyond. I live with my husband in a little apartment filled with tea, books, plants, and lots of blankets.
I’m there for the people who want artistic photos and a calm photographer. A lot of the time my couples tell me they want their wedding to feel just like a really awesome, fun family party. And they want a photographer who’s unobtrusive and won’t “hijack” the wedding. Knowing when to step back and when to step in is my secret weapon–it’s why people trust me to get candids, and why my couples say they never notice me at their wedding unless they need me. I really want you to be happy and enjoy your own wedding day. If this is all starting to sound good to you, let’s talk!
“Kathleen made us feel so at ease, it was like we were talking to a good friend...we’d recommend her to anyone not looking for someone to document their special day, but create works of art you can treasure the rest of your lives.” – vicky + anjuli
