My portfolio reflects a diversity of people and events. I love to photograph! I honed my craft enjoying the adventures of being a newspaper photojournalist for nine years. I use those skills to capture true to life moments and the beauty in everyone. I am a total animal lover and have shot events for Dove Lewis Animal Hospital and other NPOs. I've worked abroad in Peru, Myanmar & Guatemala to mention a few locales. I speak fluent Spanish. I love the outdoors rain or shine! Let's chat and let's collaborate to create unforgettable images.
Awards, honors and recognition
I recently won a brand new very $$$ Canon camera for a wedding photo I captured dudring an Indian wedding at Yosemite National Park. I've been honored by the National Press Photographer's Assoc. and featured in several photography exhibits.
A fun fact about me
I served in the Peace Corps in the Dominican Republic. I captured an image of two local kids riding a donkey and it was published in a book titled, "Children from Australia to Zimbabwe." While I have always loved photography, this got me hooked!

Katharine Kimball is a Total Pro! We hosted a Women in Tech Conference and offered free professional head shots for the attendees. Not knowing how best to execute on such a large scale we called Katharine and she walked us through it. She asked great questions ahead of time helping us better plan and budget for this portion of the event. On the day of the event she showed up early, set up quickly and got right to work! She shot over 100 headshots that day and helped each woman feel their best as she did so. Her ready smile, gentle humor and supportive demeanor helped each subject relax and express herself. The clients had fun and we had a wonderfully easy and successful shoot. Win, win! You can't go wrong with Katharine!
We were very pleased to have Katharine as our wedding photographer. Katharine is very professional; she was very communicative and attentive to our requests. She first met with us a couple of weeks before the wedding to understand our expectations. We then continued the discussion via emails. She also made sure to accommodate our privacy concerns in the contract.
On the wedding day Katharine very efficiently managed to get the photos we wanted and many more in the span of two hours. This could have not been possible if she wasn't extra organized and systematic. Our guests loved her, the comment we heard from them the most was "she is great with crowds". Finally, we really liked the photos and moments which Katharine captured. Thank you Katharine for being there for us on our special day.
Katharine is truly a talented photographer! We met at a community event and after seeing her portfolio, my wife and I knew we wanted to work with her. The first project she worked on was a calendar that's purpose was for our wedding fundraiser. It was a huge success!! We shot in multiple locations, 14 different models and through all of it she was always on time, full of laughter and fast. The photos were wonderfully organic and well structured. AND she worked with our crazy schedule and she's great with communication! We had an awesome time working with her.
From there we asked her to take our engagement photos and they turned out beautiful and unique. She has a eye for powerful photography and isn't shy about getting "in the mud" to get the perfect shot. She's well-traveled, open-minded and creative. I love art and look at a lot of work, I truly think Katharine is one of the best photographers in the PNW.
I would definitely recommend Katharine for your next event! I booked her a little last minute for our company party of almost 400 people. She was extremely professional throughout the whole process - from our first correspondence to the end of our party. She checked in throughout the night and made sure we were getting all the shots I wanted. She sent me some highlight shots the next day and they were great!! I can't wait to see the rest of the photos - we will definitely use her for our next event!
Thank you Katharine! :)
