Bridal Inspiration | Makapu’u Lookout, Hawaii

“Like a wild flower; she spent her days, allowing herself to grow, not many knew of her struggle, but eventually all; knew of her light.” – Nikki Rowe 

Inspired by these words, Lucia brought together the most gorgeous elements for this sunrise bridal inspiration. The cascading hillside surrounding Makapu’u Beach and the soft light and ocean breeze welcomed this Carol Hannah gown with such grace. As the sun began to rise above the water line, these organic elements came to life while displaying the most gorgeous textures. Floral styling by Catalina Neal welcomed an overgrowth of dusty mauve blooms while Hikari provided a delicate, timeless look with hair and makeup. I’m so thankful to have had the opportunity to shoot alongside such amazing creatives.

This collaboration features such amazing creatives and I’m honored to have this beautiful shoot featured over on Joy Wed!

Rocky Mountain National Park Engagement | Ashely + Jake

I’m so happy for my sweet friends and neighbors, Ashley and Jake. Celebrating their love story is something I’ll truly cherish as these two have been together since high school! While they are planning their wedding, we couldn’t help but to slip away for a few engagement pictures. Rocky Mountain National Park was the perfect location for a bit of exploring and countless laughs. Ashley and Jake, I had so much fun with you two and wish you many years of happiness together.

“Life is captured by small, beautiful moments. Katherine truly understands the meaning of this and captivatingly expresses this in every photo. She chose the alluring Rocky Mountain National Park for our location. With the most gorgeous sunset and lush green mountains, this location creates romance in its very air. We had a wonderful time exploring, making one big adventure of it. She understood the tenderness of our love and captured it effortlessly. She doesn’t just take a photo, she creates art. She made us feel so comfortable and welcomed our personalities with open arms. Jake and I are so thankful and honored to have worked with her. Thank you Katherine for creating a stunning and memorable engagement shoot!” – Ashley

Vinewood Plantation | Carroll + Richard

In July my sweet friend Shauna hosted a two-day creative workshop at Vinewood Plantation in Newnan, Georgia. I encouraged my friend Melissa to make the trip with me from Colorado and my goodness, the experience was truly wonderful! Shauna and her team came together to foster the idea of collaboration over competition while encouraging us to pursue those creative ambitions stirring within our hearts. Our time at the Thrive Workshop was filled with two gorgeous styled shoots, the sweetest lineup of speakers, and a beautiful Friday night social.

Below you’ll see a few of my favorite moments from our lifestyle session with Carroll and Richard. Not only did they supply florals for this shoot but were also the sweetest to photograph. I can’t wait to share more!
