Congratulations on your engagement! I'm a wedding photographer in Los Altos and would love to be considered for your wedding.


I was trained in film photography as an undergrad at Stanford, and have been shooting professionally all over the world for over ten years.


Why me? I have a knack for seeing behind the scenes, for being able to show you not only the big moments and meaningful rituals and traditions that a wedding day brings, but also all the little moments that are happening around you at the same time, that you would otherwise never get to see.


Every wedding is new! Sparkling brides; overexcited children; gorgeous details and bright flowers and old family heirlooms and traditions and rituals... those stolen moments that happen behind the scenes, brimming with emotion and history... marriages and families never get old. Every wedding "begins the world anew."

    Kathleen is such a sweetheart and her work is amazing! I can't wait to have children because I only trust Kathleen to do photography.


    I recommend her for any occasion. Her pricing is beyond reasonable and provides great packages.


    The pictures is great quality and I can tell she has an eye for the "perfect shot".

    Kathleen did an incredible job on both our engagement photos and our wedding photos.  She was delightful to work with.  She was very good at not "getting in the way"-- we barely noticed she was there throughout our preparation, ceremony, and reception, yet she captured everything on film and was right there whenever we wanted a particular picture.  She wasn't one for giving us lots of direction to pose in specific stereotypical wedding portrait ways, but that was fine with us-- we got beautiful and natural pictures.  Her pricing was far below that of many of her competitors, yet she continued taking pictures until the end of our long wedding day and presented us with a huge number of gorgeous photo files in only three weeks after our wedding.  Now the hard part is choosing which ones we want to print, because there are so many great photos.  We had overall excellent vendors for our wedding, but she was one of our favorites!

    Kathleen is by far the best photographer I have ever worked with. Her work is superb, and she is extremely personable. I was just in awe of the photos she took for our engagement shoot as well as the wedding. The albums are top quality, large, and really classy. I received a ton of compliments having the guest book at the wedding with our engagement photos and spaces for people to sign. We are in the process of choosing our pictures for the wedding album, and can't wait! The wedding photos came in a personalized wooden, engraved box with our names and wedding date along with printed photos and a USB containing all the pictures. I cannot say enough good things about her, I am completely satisfied with our experience and am so grateful she was able to document this incredibly important time in our lives! Thank you Kathleen!!

    Kathleen was absolutely AMAZING!! She has a calming presence that made me feel at eaze on my wedding day. She was so helpful and easy going. The turnaround time on my wedding photos was also very quick, while we were waiting she provided little sneak peaks of some her her favorite shots. This was nice so we could share some photos with family and friends. She caught so many special moments that we will cherish forever. The quality and composition of her photos is exceptional. I highly recommend Kathleen and hope to work with her again on other photoshoots in the future. Thank you so much Kathleen it was SUCH a pleasure working with you!!!

    Kathleen is a master of photography and extremely talented in capturing every moment's magic and art. She was my wedding photographer this past June and I'm in awe of her work. The candid moments she was able to capture throughout the day really do tell the story and feelings of the day and recreate all those raw emotions.. From all the nerves and excitement getting ready with hair and makeup and the moments before walking down the ceremony aisle, to the pure joy, laughter and letting loose for the reception - Kathleen's work encapsulates all of that! There is not one moment or memory that wasn't captured. I've looked through my album so many times and as a bride, it truly stirs up all these raw emotions for me again. There is a depth to Kathleen's work that allows her to capture small moments when you don't even notice she is there and bring to life the day's events, special guests, and actual 3D-like movement throughout the reception.


    Kathleen is incredibly sweet and easy to work with! Her prices are very fair and the quality of her work exceeds all expectations. She strikes the perfect balance of a calm demeanor and her own genuine excitement throughout her client's wedding day at all those little moments. She was was very meticulous in getting various artistic shots of the details from the dress, venue decor, floral arrangements, etc that genuinely make it look like out of a bridal magazine! Cannot praise Kathleen and her talent enough, I'm extremely happy and impressed with my wedding photography and how it turned out. Thank you Kathleen!

    Kathleen is amazing to work with. We hired her for our wedding in June on Mount Diablo, and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Besides being super talented (our pics are incredible), she is warm and great at anticipating your needs. We would highly recommend working with Kathleen!
