Naz and Katie engagements PRINT-94.jpg

HEYYY EVERYONE!

I'M KATIE (WAVES). I GREW UP IN VIRGINIA AND HAVE BEEN PHOTOGRAPHING WEDDINGS+FAMILIES FOR THE PAST 11 YEARS...YES! 11 YEARS. IT'S CRAZY HOW QUICKLY TIME HAS FLOWN. I USE BOTH FILM+DIGITAL EQUIPMENT. EACH HAS THEIR OWN BEAUTIFUL+UNIQUE QUALITIES WHICH ALLOWS FOR TIMELESS IMAGES.

I feel strongly about creating photos that feel like "You". my sessions are a bit longer so that we can ease into everything and you can be comfortable.

 I'M INCREDIBLY FORTUNATE TO HAVE BEEN NAMED ONE OF MARTHA STEWART'S TOP WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS IN THE COUNTRY. (TOOT TOOT). YOU CAN FIND A LOT OF MY WORK IN BRIDES, MARTHA STEWART WEDDINGS, SOUTHERN WEDDINGS, SOUTHERN LIVING, INSIDE WEDDINGS, STYLE ME PRETTY, ETC... NOW, ON TO MORE IMPORTANT THINGS...

I LOVE FOOD. I CAN HAVE AN ENTIRE DISCUSSION ON MY LOVE FOR BREAD.

I LOVE ANIMALS (DOGS ARE THE BEST).

I LOVE COLOR.

I LOVE EXPLORING with my Naz (see photo).

I LOVE SALT AIR.

I LOVE italy & the lifestyle. the sun in rome paired with the views of the amalfi coast or como and i'm in heaven.

I LOVE THE WEST COAST SUN.

IF YOU ENJOY ANY OF THESE THINGS, THERE'S A GOOD CHANCE, WE WILL BE FRIENDS+LOVE WORKING TOGETHER. NOW, GO TAKE A LOOK THROUGH THE GALLERIES!
