University Club Wedding | Peter + Lauren

UniversityClubWeddingPhotography-46

Lauren is about as Southern as they come. She's a Texas girl complete with class, elegance, and southern charm. When Peter, the Midwestern boy turned Manhattan Lawyer, spotted her at church he knew he wanted to ask her out. The only thing was getting ahold of Lauren was tricky business. Peter started finding any excuse to hang out with Lauren and her friends, but each time he showed up she mysteriously wasn't around. After much persistence they ended up hanging out with some friends one night, and he asked her out. They went for dinner the following week, and it's safe to say they quickly fell for one another. When they got engaged they knew instantly that they wanted to get married at The University Club in Manhattan. Both of them had attended weddings and events there and loved it. Lauren and Peter's wedding was beautiful, not to mention NYC graced us with a beautiful Spring day!

Lauren + Peter y'all are such a gift + I hope you're enjoying your honeymoon so much! XO, Kat

Lula Kate + Kate McDonald Bridal

1.LulaKate.KateMcdonald.Bridal.Wedding-16 The stars aligned last fall when Beth Chapman of The White Dress reached out to me to photograph a shoot she put together with Lula Kate bridesmaids + wedding gown designer Kate McDonald.  It turned out to be the All-American , preppy girl dream bridal shoot (and I was swooning every second of the day--Kate McDonald even hand painted this wedding gown!).  We had a team of amazing creatives to pull off this bride + bridesmaid shoot , and Connecticut was the perfect backdrop.

Style Me Pretty published the shoot on their site today.  Please venture over + share some love!

I cannot wait to work with these fabulous ladies again!

XO,

Kat

Jason + Lauren | Dallas Wedding Photography

Kennedy-Scruggs750

When I think of Lauren and Jason I think of: depth, authenticity, laughter, and power.  What is amazing about their love is that individually they both have passion to be a positive voice in our culture, and together the power they have to be leaders in our world is endless. (Not to mention their love is completely infectious!) Their wedding day was flawless. Surrounded by their family and community they celebrated what God has done in their lives, and their journey towards forever. Lauren was so full of peace and so grounded that day, and Jason is always a ball of energy and such a light. Their ceremony was intimate and tears and laughter brought their announcement of husband and wife. Todd Events created an effortless winter chic vibe, and to say there was an epic dance party is an understatement. Jason and Lauren you two are gems. You bring such light to our world, and we are so excited for your lives to unfold! XO, Kat + Linz

P.S.  Another really special part of shooting this wedding was the unique experience I got to shoot with one of my long time friends Lindsey Shea.  Lindsey is one of the most intentional + loyal people that I have met.  It was a unique situation because we got to team up together.  I'm so grateful to have gone through this experience with her!  Lindsey I love you friend!

DUMBO Engagements | Brian + Janet

DUMBO.BrooklynEngagements-10

Brian lived in Pittsburg and Janet was a magazine editor New York City.   Brian's sister decided to play matchmaker, and told him about this amazing gal in the city.  Soon after he bought a flight to NYC to meet this gal (I know it sounds like a movie right...but it gets better).  Their first date went so well, that they decided to have date two the whole next day.  It's safe to say by the end of the weekend their romance was in full swing.  For months they were long distance, flying back and forth to visit each other, and then Brian proposed.

Brian and Janet are two of the sweetest people, and are getting married this fall.  It was such a gift to spend the afternoon in DUBMO with them...I mean honestly...how cute are they?

XO,

Kat

The Green Building | Brooklyn Wedding

TheGreenBuilding.BrooklynWeddingPhotography-27

It's been quite the year here in Brooklyn.  Each month I love learning the ins + outs of this unique + artisan cove of New York.  What I've learned is that Brooklynites like all things artisan + all things local!  I got together with a lovely team of Brooklyn Wedding Vendors + we created the ultimate Brooklyn Wedding at The Green Building right around the corner.  Ara from Rock Paper Scissor Events made what was in my mind a reality + so much better than I could have hoped for!  (Ara...you're amazing!)  You can see the whole post today on Style Me Pretty.

Style Me Pretty Feature | The Highline Hotel Radiant Orchid Wedding

KEH_7966

Last December when my sweet from Emily + her husband Aaron were visiting from San Fran they stayed at this old seminary turned hotel in Chelsea.  I was instantly intrigued, and upon exploring the space with Em + taking our Christmas card pics there for our fashion blog I knew without a doubt that The Highline Hotel was a space I wanted to create in.  Fast forward a month and I began thinking of ways to mix my two passions:  fashion + wedding photography.  What better way to do both than incorporate Pantone's Color of the Year:  Radiant Orchid?

For the fashion forward bride who wants to incorporate pieces of Radiant Orchid my suggestion:  stay with classic silhouettes and add pops of color in your details.  From jewelry to nail polish to bouquets, to lavender mimosas there are a 1,000 different ways to incorporate orchid into your wedding.  If you're feeling a bit adventurous go bold like our bride + bridesmaids did!

This shoot took a village + I am beyond humbled and grateful at the amazingly creative + talented ladies that came together to make this shoot happen.  Thank you for helping to make this vision a reality + 100 times better than I could have ever hoped for!  If you don't know these fabulous people, get to know them!  And brides if you're still looking for NYC vendors…these are your gals!

Be sure + check out Style Me Pretty today for the full feature on this shoot!

Kat

End of the Year Faves | Weddings

2012... Where did you go?  You seem to have slipped through my fingers.  Once again I find myself at the end of another year, and let me tell you 2012 has been quite the year.  When this year started the word that came to mind for the next 12 months was transition.  I really did not know what that would entail, but it has entailed quite a bit.

This year I started my own business, which I honestly thought I would never do.  I feel like I have been thrown into this journey that I never expected to be on, and more than anything I feel so thankful.  Thankful for the opportunities, thankful for those of you who have supported and cheered me on, thankful for clients that trust me, and thankful oh-so-thankful that I get to wake up and do what I love to do.

This year, I have had the privilege to photograph some beautiful weddings!  Here are some of my favorite wedding images from 2012...

Stay Tuned for more of my 2012 faves:)
