Hi, I'm Kate Grace
As a DC wedding photographer, I get to capture the moment-by-moment feelings of the wedding day, and be right by your side as you start your new journey together. And please don’t be shy when the wedding is over and photos are hanging on your walls. I’d love to stay in touch!
But before we get to that point, when we detail out your wedding timeline, take your dreamy engagement photos and anxiously await your wedding day, it’s crucial that we get to know each other. I spend a majority of my consultations talking all about you, your unique story and getting into what your dream wedding looks like. But in case you want to learn a little more about me, this is for you.
Your wedding photos should be filled with the same kind of stirring emotions you experience as you look at each other for the first time as husband and wife. I use unposed moments and organic movement with guidance to create images you’ll love. Keep in mind that your engagement session will guide you into this laid-back photography experience as you learn to relax and be at ease in front of the camera.
I use unposed, authentic love, rather than staged perfection.
For the last 14 years, it has been a sweet privilege to watch couples laugh and truly enjoy these long-awaited and dreamed-about moments. I’ll take time to carefully learn about you and what makes your relationship unique. And of course, on your wedding day, I’ll capture the many details and portraits you’re going to love, all while keeping things on schedule.
I'll be there every step of the way — whether it's helping the groom straighten his tie, holding a bouquet, fixing a veil or capturing you sneaking an emotional hug in with your dad before walking down the aisle. I love what I do, and I can't imagine doing photography without couples like you!
I combine my experience with your unique story.
Let’s create images that reflect exactly who you are.
I was the kindergartner who tediously colored, always being careful to stay in between the lines. It was very apparent even from a young age that art was a passion and strength of mine. As I grew older, I dabbled in painting and design, and then started photography in high school. After graduating, I landed an internship (which then led to a job) with studio imaging, image editing and event coverage. Several years later, I photographed a friend's wedding and I was inspired to pursue this path. It’s been 15 years since then and I have to pinch myself that this is my job! I am so, so grateful.
I love a good sunrise with coffee and friends. Real laughs, genuine love, fresh air, and the kind of dreams that bring you on a worldwide adventure.
⟡ Shopping therapy on a rainy day is my absolute favorite thing.
⟡ I love my sparkling wine and coffee.
⟡ I'm not an avid reader, as I prefer to be active, doing something, anything, with my hands, I do enjoy a good podcast or audiobook though!
⟡ Planning adventures near and far fills up my free time.
⟡ Korean drama's–need I say more?
⟡ I have just three more states to conquer before hitting all 50 (Only Alaska, Connecticut and Rhode Island are left! You’ll be my favorite if you choose to elope in Alaska.)
