Images that are TIMELESS, ELEGANT, and JOYFUL. The kind that bring you back to that feeling of anticipation before walking down the aisle, the pure joy of that first kiss, and the love that surrounds you at your reception. Your images should be full of your personalities! Not stuffy and fake smiles!

Are you looking for a laid-back photographer who feels more like a FRIEND? One who makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera and makes your fiancé not hate their photo being taken? I got you! I'm so glad you're here!

YOU WILL THANK ME LATER! She is simply the best of the best. I cannot tell you how many compliments I have gotten on my wedding AND engagement pictures. Even better, she is the sweetest and easiest person to work with, ever. My husband HATES to take pictures and she made it enjoyable to him...that says A LOT!! I cannot recommend her enough, she is truly amazing.

We had a lot of great vendors at our wedding, but having Kaitlyn as our photographer was hands down the best decision we made! She made me and my husband so comfortable during our engagement shoot and was understanding when we had to reschedule last minute due to a flight delay. She has all kinds of poses up her sleeve and really makes you enjoy the experience of taking time to snuggle in close and celebrate your love. My husband said it was one of his favorite pre-wedding events! She's extremely knowledgable about how to plan out your big day to get the best shots in the best light and her planning forms are very detailed to collect all the information she needs to make sure you get every picture you dream of. When extra pictures were requested by family the day of she accommodated graciously. She captured our relationship perfectly... and took some incredible glamour shots that make us like models! She's so talented, but also incredibly warm and genuinely excited for you. I can't recommend her enough!

Working with Kaitlyn was nothing short of incredible! We are so grateful to have had Kaitlyn as a friend at our special day AND as the person who captured every moment of the day. She incorporated little details into every photo she took and found all the perfect spots at our venue. But what's most amazing was her ability to make our goofy antics look beautiful! Without any direction, Kaitlyn came in, did her thing, and worked through the chaos of our wedding day. She is so talented and so easy to work with.
Kaitlyn truly captured the most beautiful moments of our day which we will treasure for the rest of our lives. We can't recommend someone more highly!

engagement sessions

and why are they important?

Engagement sessions are SO important! You can showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you (and even include pets! Bring all the dogs!). Your images are great for save-the-dates or just to document this incredible time for you guys!

There is a lot to think about when it comes to planning a session and since I get asked the same things over and over again, I thought it would be the most beneficial if we put together a guide that walks you through everything you need to know. 

I send this guide to my KB Brides to help answer what to wear, whether to bring pets & how to manage them, location ideas, outfit inspirations and more! 

How many images will I receive? 

I always quote 45-70 images per hour of coverage! A second shooter, time for details, and a controlled exit can all help your gallery be larger. 

let's see if I can help!

questions?

How much is required to reserve my date?

A $700 date retainer and a signed contract is all you need to officially be a KB Bride! *throws confetti*

let's see if I can help!

questions?

Do you have insurance?

I do! I can provide your venue/coordinator with my policy before your big day!

let's see if I can help!

questions?

Do you have backup gear?

More than I like to admit! I also shoot on two SD cards to be safe and back up your images not just once or twice, but in THREE different ways! Paranoid photographer problems!

let's see if I can help!

questions?

Thank you so much for considering me for your incredible big day! Interested in being a KB Bride? Send me a website message or email at hello@kaitlynblakephotography.com to get this party started!
