Kathleen is your advocate on your wedding day; offering unwavering support during one of the most beautiful (and at times stressful) days to help you enjoy each moment without worry.
As an artist, Kathleen regards photography as a true art form, not a point-and-shoot job, which is why every image captured is reviewed during the editing process and hand-edited to ensure it is a true piece of artwork for her couples. While other photographers run AI editing software, Kathleen takes a personal approach to every part of the wedding photography experience.
Elegant, sophisticated and personalized. Kathleen’s approach is to create beautiful images that evoke emotion, tell your story with elegance and draw you back for a second look. The connections she forms with her clients throughout the process ensure that their day will be photographed from beginning to end in a way that documents their genuine love for each other, while still being timeless.
Outside her photography business, Kathleen enjoys quiet mornings with her fiancé and three dogs and exploring Washington, DC's best restaurants, lounges and museums.

Traditional 8 hour wedding day galleries will be digitally delivered within 8-12 weeks of the wedding date. Elopements, intimate weddings and engagements have a delivery time frame of 4-6 weeks. Every wedding and elopement receive a sneak peek gallery delivered within 72 hours.
Whenever you're ready! I did my own engagement portraits a week after getting engaged, as I was quite excited. Some couples wait for a particular season or destination to take photos.
Wedding albums and prints are offered after the wedding day gallery has been delivered for an additional investment.
Fine Art Modern Wedding Photography perfectly blends the artwork of fine photography with the unhuried, calm feel of modern wedding photography.

"SAVVY UNDER PRESSURE."
I had such an amazing experience with Kathleen!! She was so enthusiastic and sweet, and did an amazing job working with our tight timeline for our day. She made us feel comfortable and our photos came out amazing. The beautiful photos from our intimate wedding day came back to us so quickly. All our guests commented on how much they adored our photos. I cannot say enough good things about Kathleen; she was such a pleasure to work with!
Kathleen & John were absolutely amazing! We were recommended to them from a friend who has used them for several shoots. They did not disappoint! Our wedding day was so stressful - the venue and the weather were total let downs. Kathleen was amazing at easing our nerves and reminding us to HAVE FUN! It was raining all day, but the photos turned out absolutely gorgeous regardless. They kept to our schedule, and always knew what was coming next. They knew how to pose us, keep the crew engaged, and they truly caught all of the moments we were hoping for. We loved them so much, we've booked a family shoot as well! Highly recommend for any event!
Where do we begin? Kathleen was everything and more. Leading up to the session we had no idea what to expect since we had never been in front of a camera like this. She was sweet, professional and totally had us extremely comfortable for our engagement photos. She gave us just the right direction to catch our moments and capture the best photos. The turn around time to receive our photos was quick and the outcome was just simply beautiful and amazing. Kathleen, thank you so much and can’t wait to continue using your services as our story unfolds!
We feel very lucky to have found Kathleen and John to capture our engagement and wedding photographs. The images were spectacular and we couldn’t have been happier. Both my husband and I have been avid photographers for many years, so it took us quite some time (7-8 months of looking for the right photographer) before we were fortunate to find Kathleen. From day 1 Kathleen was exceptionally responsive, professional, focused, but on a more personal level she was sweet, fun, creative and enthusiastic, which made her a joy to work with. I know she loves her work, it shows not only in her interactions with you but also in the work she produces - the images speak for themselves. Kathleen not only has the technical skills, the creativeness, but also works hard for her clients to capture those special moments they will never forget – which is a priceless gift.
