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.

Tamara and Jon came all the way from the windy city to get married at the Mission San Luis Obispo. They brought loads of happy family and friends to help celebrate. One of my favorite parts of their wedding was when guests lit dozens of Chinese lanterns over the reception (in Edna Valley at a private home). As they floated into the sky, it looked just like a scene out of the movie Entangled. (moments later I did wonder if the airport control tower nearby was wondering what was going on…but no planes flew by, so I guess all was good).

Kevin and Nat live in San Diego. That alone makes us friends. We snuck this engagement session in right before Kevin (who does something with taxes) went into tax season. I’m glad we did it, because the hills were nice and green still. That doesn’t last long enough here on the Central Coast. I’m looking forward to their wedding later this year!

Daniella is a twin. Adam is a twin. Daniella married Adam at Mountain Winery…and their twins were the maid of honor and best man. AND, their twins are dating! I found only found that out when the toasts were being said and I kept looking around to see if I was being punked. What are the chances, twins dating twins?

Mountain Winery was a new venue for me and I was pleasantly surprised. Fantastic views of the San Jose area, great stone buildings and vineyards, plus a super nice staff.

Mary and David chose a stunning venue for their wedding. The McCormick Home Ranch is a family-owned venue…as in the family still lives in the home and helps coordinate the smooth operations for weddings. They’ve made it an art form in fact. The gardens are perfectly manicured, the lighting is well-placed (or is that something only photographers notice?), and the weather is perfect (ok, maybe the McCormick family didn’t make that happen…but I wouldn’t put it past them to have that talent).
