SAN LUIS OBISPO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY (and then some...)


Welcome to my little blog. I am Katie. Nice to meet you! I live in San Luis Obispo and happen to have one of the world's best jobs. I photograph weddings, families, and kids. Many of you are finding this blog because you are planning a wedding...and to you a special welcome. Good luck! Wedding planning is a long process, and I value the time you've taken to find my site!

And a "thank you" to my current and past clients for letting me into their special connections, sharing their families. I am blessed to continue personal friendships with many clients well past their weddings.

What inspires me about weddings? Love, connections, happiness, laughter, hugs, warmth, tears, appreciation, gratitude, praise...and that's what gives me goosebumps at weddings. The decorations get packed away (although pintrest helps us remember every detail you might have considered, lol!), but the love remains as the foundation. I want your photos to reflect more than just the decorations of your life, it should reflect the love and laughter that provides the foundation for everything to come.

Christine and Jake got married at the Point Vincente Interpretive Center in Rancho Palos Verdes. It’s a beautiful public park right on the cliffs near the (similarly-named) Point Vincente lighthouse. Christine’s parents and family have all lived in the area for a long time and the lighthouse holds a special feeling of “home” for them. We also happened to have perfect weather for the day, so that was just icing on the cake. Just a little fist bump for Christine’s parents (especially dad)…they raised TWO sets of twin daughters!! Oh my gosh that sounds hard! This wedding also worked out conveniently because the very next day I took off from LAX to a trip to Panama! I need to dig through my personal photos and blog that trip, too!

Vanessa and Jesse are librarians. (I think that’s officially an endangered species these days.) I’m not sure why that really stuck out in my mind after the wedding…but it just isn’t a career choice that many people think of. For as much as I read as a kid, I think I could be an honorary librarian.

Back on track, Vanessa and Jesse got married at the Grace Maralyn Estate. The day was a little warmer than usual, but that is what made the choice of venue great. The warm Central Coast evenings in North County are so wonderful. Looking at the photos after the sun went down makes me really glad I’m so lucky to live here.

My good friend Lynne has motivated me in ways she will never totally know. She’s a swimmer, runner, triathlete. She’s qualified for Boston. She loves Disneyland (we’ve been there several times together). Basically, she has always shown me that I am capable of more than I ever would expect. She was also very encouraging of my camera adventures when I first started shooting. I’ve heard and met some of her family through the years, so when her niece Stephanie got engaged…we made plans for a fun time in Murfreesboro, Tennessee!

Don’t adjust the colors on your computer screen. That deep color of green is apparently natural in places outside of California. Also natural, heat+humidity. Even when you aren’t in a sauna or hot yoga class…you can feel like it in Tennessee. Bugs grow bigger, snakes are common in backyards, and moths are the size of birds. However, cool places (like downtown Nashville) and nice people make up for all that pretty easily.

And if I can find it…I’m going to post a link of a hillbilly at the moonshine distillery so that you can hear the accent! I would’ve thought he was kidding me…but he really does speak like a movie character!

Keri and Jeff had a sunset wedding ceremony at Castoro Cellars. It made for awesome twilight sky during the ceremony photos…but we accommodated, in part, by taking formal and family portraits beforehand at Summerwood Inn. I’m sure you’ll notice all the details Keri and Jeff put into their wedding decor…beautiful table settings, tea lights, and floral arrangements. They all worked together so well. But that dress…wow, that dress. It was so beautiful in person. So many details that to truly see it you’d have to take at least 25 minutes doing nothing else. It was amazing.
