meet Kathleen & John

Kathleen Marie Ward grew up with a camera in her hand and a passion for capturing memories. Taking after her father, John, Kathleen decided to pursue wedding photography after completing her bachelors in psychology and realizing her true passion. Today she is an award winning photographer and full time crier at every wedding she captures.

John Ward has over 35 years of photography expertise with an eye for capturing candids in a documentary style. When John isn’t making the groom and groomsmen laugh, he can be found setting up the perfect off-camera lighting for the wedding venue.

The daughter-father duo are the perfect wedding day team determined to capture every tear, smile and moment shared between their couples and families. When they aren’t photographing their beautiful couples, Kathleen enjoys exploring DC with her Pomeranian fur baby, Marlow and John enjoys reading and painting.

Q: WHAT MAKES YOUR WORK DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS’ WORK?

A: My photography is based on real emotion shared between my couples, captured in a timeless and classic artistic flow, allowing couples to be themselves in front of the camera. If you’re shy in front of the camera I will pose & model with you. My goal is to capture the real YOU and the happiness you share with your loved ones.

Q: WILL WE GET THE PRINT RELEASE TO OUR PHOTOS AFTER OUR WEDDING?

A: yes! upon receiving your images, you will also get a full print release.


Q: HOW MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS WILL BE THERE AT OUR WEDDING?

A: most of our wedding collections come with one photographer, although you can always add on a second photographer for an additional cost.


Q: WILL WE GET FEATURED IN A MAGAZINE OR BLOG?

A: although many of our sessions do get featured, this is not something that is guaranteed.


Q: DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH ELOPEMENTS?

A: of course! depending on availability and the number of hours you have set aside for photography, we have special rates for weekday weddings and elopements.
