DUMBO Engagements | Nico + MeredithAugust 5, 2015

posted in Engagements

“We were seeing each other without even looking at each other…”

This is how Nico described the night he met Meredith at a restaurant in Manhattan.  Hearing him say that was powerful.  To really see someone is so much more than looking at them with your eyes.  It’s their presence; it’s their ways of being.  And from their first meeting, he says, they saw each other in this way.  It was instant.  They were just drawn to each other.

He’s from Paris, and she’s from New Orleans, and they both found their way to New York with different jobs around 3 years ago.  A thousand things happened in a thousand tiny ways that each led them to that exact restaurant on the same night where they saw each other.  Stories like these affirm to me that there is no such thing as accidents.

Nico and Meredith are kind.  They laugh a lot with each other, and what I noticed about them is how deeply they care for one another.  Congratulations on your engagement y’all!  Thank you for giving me permission to enter such a beautiful space with you two!

XO,

Kat

Liberty Warehouse Brooklyn Wedding | Jesse + JenJuly 2, 2015

“You’re one of the pickiest people I know…and you picked me!” Jen giggled and gave Jesse a sassy look as she read her vows.  He just looked right back at her with such love in his eye, and then couldn’t help but laugh too.  It was one of my favorite moments of the day.

Jesse and Jen have been together for six years now, and I’ve gotten to know them over the past year getting ready for their wedding.  Here’s what I have experienced about the two of them:   Jesse and Jen are passionate about living lives of depth and purpose.  They care deeply about their family and friends.  And they are intelligent, well spoken, and never forget to laugh and enjoy every every second of their adventurous lives.

You two,  I just had the most fun getting to know y’all and your journey!  I’m so excited for this next season for the two of you in South America….I’m positive it will be such an incredible adventure.

XO,

Kat

Marshall + Mallory | Houston WeddingJuly 1, 2015

“When you’re walking down that aisle and seeing your partner for the first time on your wedding day you won’t be thinking about the past, your heartbreaks, your mistakes…you’ll be thinking He was so worth the wait”.  A pastor friend of mine told me that years ago, and I’ve never forgotten it.

The waiting is hard, and can be lonely, frustrating, and every emotion in between. But when you meet that person and find yourself on your wedding day; it will be so worth the wait.  I believe that.

Shooting Marshall and Mallory’s wedding was this fleshed out.  They didn’t see each other before the ceremony.  The moment when the doors opened and Mallory and her dad walked down the aisle was powerful.  It brought tears to my eyes.  It was holy.

Marshall and Mallory you two are special individually and as a couple.  I’m so grateful that you chose me to capture your day.  God has beautiful things for the two of you.  I truly believe the best is yet to come.

XO,

Kat

Keith and Ashley.  The energy the two of you bring into a room is magnetic.  Keith I love how you just own the room.  You know no stranger, and can make people feel at ease in a second.  Ashley I love how caring and thoughtful you are.  The women in your life look up to you in a very real and precious way.

Together the two of you are generous, thoughtful, and bursting at the seams with life.  Your best is yet to come.  Thank you for entrusting me to capture your wedding; it was such a gift!

New York Public Library Engagements | Jin + CarolineJune 11, 2015

posted in Engagements

NewYorkPublicLibraryEngagements.CJ-1

My mamma always said when you know you know, and you’ll move mountains to make something happen.  Caroline and Jin met through mutual friends when she was visiting New York City for the weekend from LA.  They felt a connection early on, and even though they were on opposite coasts they decided to give it a chance.  Because when you know something is special you fight for it.  You make it work.  You make things happen.

Well Jin ended up moving to LA, and proposed last fall to Caroline in Napa Valley.  (I mean can it get any more romantic).

We had so much fun running through the streets of Manhattan a few weeks ago, and I cannot wait to shoot their wedding this fall.

XO,

Kat
