7 Years of experience

Hi! I’m Kate, and I am a photojournalist in Chicago. I have been photographing weddings, events, and concerts for over six years, and I pride myself on being both approachable and professional. I am an independent, queer business owner, meaning that when you work with me, you work with only me. I will be your person of contact every step of the way, and I promise to deliver high-quality, artistic images that you will love.


I particularly love shooting queer couples' weddings and showers, as I feel that queer people need representation now more than ever. I will research every aspect of your ceremony and cultural traditions to ensure your wedding photos completely reflect who you are.


I take COVID very seriously and have been strictly following social distancing and health guidelines. I have been fully vaccinated since April 1st, and I still wear a mask during shoots.

Awards, honors and recognition

I was one of seven women nationwide selected for an photography exhibit in 2018 at The Annex in Chicago. I was able to showcase my music photography alongside some of the most talented and inspiring women in the industry.

A fun fact about me

I've shot over 500 concerts and festivals!
