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.

Pam and Alec made a gutsy decision. They booked their wedding venue while it was still undergoing some construction and remodeling, with the promise that it would be done before their wedding date. Good thing they were willing, because that risk paid great rewards. Emily’s House is a great bed and breakfast place just off the heart of downtown Paso Robles, and it looked beautiful for Pam and Alec’s big day. I love finding new venues in my own Paso Robles backyard, and I’m certain that you’ll be seeing more from this place on my blog in the future. And since I know people will ask, Pam’s dress is from Dolly Couture and yes, it rocks!

So there once was a beautiful venue here in Paso Robles called Villa Toscana. Gorgeous Tuscan architecture, green landscaping, and to-die-for rooms. Sadly, it shut down with the economic problems several years ago. However, in a happy change, it is under new ownership/management and has reopened for weddings! I’m not entirely sure what the new name is…if they still use Villa Toscana, or if CaliPaso Winery will be their new name (it was on all the property signs). Regardless, the place is still amazing! (Updated: Here’s their website link for Weddings at CaliPaso Winery Villa Toscana)

Laura and Jared were not originally supposed to get married here. Instead, they were going to be at Eagle Castle. But, the economy problems caused Eagle Castle to go out of the winery business too, just a few months before Laura and Jared’s wedding date. In a scramble, they found out that Villa Toscana (CaliPaso Winery) had just reopened and had their date available. Win-win situation.

I’m so happy that everything worked out for them. The date was great fun, and Brad…you know there’s a couple dance floor pictures of you that I’m saving for just the right time. ;)

Amy and Rick came out from Arizona to get married at the beautiful Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort. They were accompanied by close family (Rick’s mom and brother, as well as Rick and Amy’s kids). It was fun, it was relaxed, and it was meaningful. A great example of why I offer “small wedding” photography packages…they just make perfect sense for some weddings.

Jen had me a little worried at first, because she openly told me ahead of our engagement session that she’s picky and expected a lot. After their photos were posted, I held my breath awaiting word whether she liked them. Tapped my fingers on the desk. Waited. And then the most awesome note came in the mail! She said she couldn’t imagine being any happier with the photos. She loved them (and so did I). Looking forward to their wedding later this year.
