WHY we're the perfect match


You love: art museums, historical architecture, classic Hollywood films and the butterflies that dance in your stomach whenever you look into the eyes of the person you love.

Kathleen's goal is to capture that dreamy, dancing, classic feeling for each couple she photographs. Her couples are refined, appreciate elegance, more than likely have physical touch as a love language and they love to love. They have an eye for art, can laugh at cheesy jokes and adore the timeless beauty of Washington, DC.

To connect with your photographer is essential to having your love story showcased perfectly. Kathleen's only wish is to make her couples feel comfortable, loved and captured authentically.

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 reminded us to have fun!"

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!

"simply beautiful & amazing"

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.
