Hello, I'm Katie! I was born and raised on the island of Nantucket, and for as long as I can remember I've been immersed in and inspired by the natural beauty of my home. I always had a camera in my hand when I was younger, chasing sunsets at the beach, out on my Dad's fishing boat and documenting my adventures with my friends in scrapbooks too numerous to count. I've had a passion for storytelling from an early age. A few years after college, I moved to Boston and enrolled in the New England School of Photography for their two-year professional program and studied photojournalism, wedding and portrait photography. After graduating I started my business on Nantucket. My goal and passion is to document the moments and experiences you’ll cherish forever. I am committed to capturing the human experience from the smallest elopement to the biggest wedding celebration, from everyday life to the family vacation celebrating 60 years of marriage for the grandparents. I also spend lots of time photographing stories and doing work for organizations that are near and dear to my heart; our local animal shelter and a recent project with an equine therapy center. I believe the best part of my job is that each wedding, project, portrait session or engagement is a new artistic endeavor with a story to be told. I live on Nantucket Island with my husband Evan and our rescue pup Ziggy and while I do a lot of work here, I am also happy to travel just about anywhere! I would love to hear more about your upcoming wedding, event or story that needs to be told.

Dear Katie, Thank you so much for your incredible photos of our wedding that so perfectly capture the day and how happy we are.

We feel so lucky that you were by our side that day. You put us both completely at ease and helped make it a truly magical day. 2020 has not been what anyone expected but our beautiful photos are certainly a bright spot for us.

Katie, We want to thank you for everything you did for us this past summer.

Love, Heather, Mitch, and Kira

Katie, First card for you! Many thanks for your professionalism. The formals are perfect...grasses made a great backdrop. Everyone loves the photo of Ry and Ro in the Madaket grasses and the release of the petals...even more special are the candids, me with my precious Chris and Nolan. "Scotty the body" dancing with everyone and the tender moments...the hugs, kisses and love. Thank you for memorializing these. Love, Carol Mother of the Groom
