What We Do

I capture unique, beautiful, and quirky destination weddings, elopements, and engagements in the most fun, amazing, and stress-free way possible. Whether you're getting married in the Northeast, the Caribbean, or anywhere else in the world, I'll be there to capture the most wonderful moments of your wedding, small or large. What's different? I approach each wedding in a different way by getting to know you and the celebration you're planning. Cookie-cutter images are what I avoid, instead focusing on ways to make your photos stand out. Typically, my clients are pretty darn cool, outdoorsy, and adventuresome--so we often do an extra few hours of photos using some amazing surroundings--islands, urban settings, helicopter trips, hikes, you name it! The more unique we can make it, the better. I'm a photojournalist, which means that in addition to catching your ceremony and family photos, I focus on candid moments: surprises, laughs, crazy dance moves, and incredible reactions that tell the story of your day. Occasionally I'll do a cool pose, but most of the time I let you talk, laugh, and enjoy everything you've planned. My photos are natural and not overly edited, so they showcase you, the place, and the moment.

What people are saying

Without a doubt, Kathryn was my favorite vendor of the entire wedding. She was professional, kind, creative, friendly and an overall joy to work with. Her work is phenomenal! We knew that going in (it's why we chose her) but we were blown away by what we received afterward. You will not regret hiring her. I promise!

Dara and Jared, New York, NY

On the day of our wedding, Kathryn met us at the St. Thomas airport for a helicopter ride to Hans Lollik Island, where our ceremony was held. She, along with the videographer, flew over first and scoped out the perfect spot on the beach to hold the ceremony. Our only request for her that day was to capture candid moments and the small details—which is exactly what Kathryn does! The images she captured that day were PERFECT in every way. From shots of the helicopter arriving to the ceremony itself and all the small details in between, she did an amazing job of capturing our day and all of the little things that made it special. Beyond that, Kathryn is professional, yet easy going, which makes it a joy to work with her. Not all photographers would be down for a helicopter ride and totally cool with the rain that fell on us that day, but Kathryn was game for it all! She was also responsive to communications before and after the ceremony and delivered our final images very quickly. If I could give her more than five stars, I would! Thank you so much, Kathryn!!!

Kathryn was a joy to work with -- completely professional and always answering any inquiries in a timely fashion. When we worked with her on the day of our wedding, she had a great eye for locations and shots. She was upbeat and her sense of humor helped lighten just made the day even more enjoyable. We received our photos in a timely fashion and they were just what we expected!

Kathryn photographed our wedding in St Thomas March 31st 2016. After seeing her portfolio online I knew she was the photographer for us and she went far beyond our expectations. She captured the whole thing so beautifully, was so easy going and by the end of the evening it felt like we'd know her for years. Thank you so much Kathryn for providing us such beautiful photos that we will treasure forever!

Where do I even start?! What struck me first with Kathryn was her website. The places she has been and her photographs are amazing. I love what she has captured. I reached out to Kathryn and she was quick to respond and extremely friendly. We are so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with her. Our wedding photos are so beautiful and she captured some incredible moments. Thank you, Kathryn, for being an incredible photographer and person to work with!
