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.

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.

Jessica and Brad came in from the Central Valley to get married at Croad Vineyards. This was a small wedding with just close friends and immediate family present. Some friends even pulled double-duty, like the officiant also was the lead bbq master. Not only did he say lovely words about new marriage, his tri-tip was perfectly cooked and yummy! Also of note, this was the same evening as the SUPER MOON. So, the moon gets a special two photos at the end of this set.

Kim and Rob are friends of Kenzi and Jeff (blogged previously for their wedding at Santa Margarita Ranch). But, since this wedding was in the middle of wedding season, Kenzi couldn’t attend because she was double-booked as a bridesmaid in another wedding. I tortured her about missing this fun wedding by periodically texting her photos of how much fun we were having without her. I’m such a nice friend, huh?!

Kim and Rob brought their wedding to the coast and chose Cambria Pines Lodge. A note on her photos…I think she had some of my favorite prep photos ever. She just was so relaxed and happy. It translated into the photos. Congrats Kim and Rob…hopefully I’ll see you guys when I’m in San Diego sometime soon!
