may 14, 2011 was one of the best days of my life, and the day i got to call my best friend my husband.

september 29, 2012, i welcomed my little lyon into the world and have been loving mommyhood ever since.

i love friends. hey, how YOU doin’?

I grew up in Iowa, and when I get upset, my accent emerges and I sound like an ol’ lady from Min-e-soo-tah.

My friends and family mean absolutely everything to me. And my dog, Charli, and cat, Luna, are totally included in that.

Blaring Taylor Swift in my car and acting like I can sing is my absolute guilty pleasure. (Shh..don’t tell my husband)

I was a gymnast for over a decade, and I take handstand pictures wherever I travel.

…And I LOVE to travel. My husband and I have visited Alaska, New York, Maui, and The Caribbean, and we’re determined to make it to Bhutan someday!

I’m totally obsessed with Pinterest. Sometimes I pin things just to seem that craftyicon wink Kate

Some of my favorite memories growing up were sitting on my grandpa’s knee listening to him sing crazy songs with his banjo.

I tried on what felt like a million wedding dresses before I found mine, and the first time I tried it on, I hated it.

I’m Kate, and I’m a photographer.

You know that feeling you get in your gut when you just know you are doing exactly what you should be doing? That feeling that lets you say with all of your heart that “This is exactly where I’m supposed to be”? I don’t think I’ve ever known a better feeling, and every time I shoot a wedding, or photograph people in love, I get that feeling. I love love. Wait, no, I REALLY love love. :)  There’s something about spending time with those in love – whether it be families, couples, even a slobbery pup or two – and capturing it with my camera that just makes me get all mushy inside.
