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.

Erin and Garry chose beautiful Cambria for their destination small wedding. They had the ceremony overlooking the ocean at the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve along the Bluff Trail. The Bluff Trail is along a wooden boardwalk that hugs the cliffs with spectacular views. The difficulty? Getting chairs all the way out to the middle of the trail…but that’s where I have to do a little shout-out to Beach Butlerz. They are a local company that specializes in making events (from family day at the beach to weddings) easier. I’ve worked with them on several events and each time I’m impressed at how easy they make it look to lug heavy, awkward large things (umbrellas, chairs, tents, sofas, etc.) across deep sand. As I overheard Garry say while watching the Beach Butlerz guy hoofing the chairs both in and out along the long trail, “That’s the best bang for my money at this wedding!”

After the ceremony, we all headed to Stolo Family Vineyards in Cambria. The place was green and lush with all sorts of flowers, weeping willows, and grass. A photographer’s playground. For the kids, there was plenty of open space with games to play and fields to run on. For the adults, awesome wine tasting, shady picnic tables, and vineyard views. I must also take a moment to give one more special shout-out. They used a food truck called Haute Skillet to cater the reception. It was AMAZING. Like so delicious, I actually spent most of my 45 minute drive home thinking about the food. If you have any reason to ever book a food truck, you must check them out. You’d think the food came out of some fancy LA restaurant that had just been reviewed by Bon Appetit magazine.

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!

A Monday wedding with seven people? Sign me up! That sounds like just the thing to brighten up a Monday. Plus, the wedding was held at a beautiful house overlooking the beach in Cambria on a perfectly sunny day, even saw a whale breaching just as I walked into the backyard overlooking the ocean. I could not have ordered up a better wedding day for Pegeen and Philip. Pegeen and Philip described their hopes for the day…small wedding, intimate family dinner, photos on the beach, and a relaxed pace. I had a several “signs” during the day that made me smile and know that things were gonna go smoothly. Philip was playing Paul Simon music during the pre-ceremony and reception (oh how I love Paul Simon!). Pegeen hired one of my favorite on-location hair and make-up artists (Rhonda Johnson). And Pegeen and Philip had Andre and Christine cater their family dinner afterwards. From the happy smiles, effortless conversations, and relaxed mood at dinner…I think everyone was pleased with how the day unfolded. I was grateful that I got to witness it, too.

Megan and Ben had a small wedding at Cambria’s Olallieberry Inn and the day could not have been better for it.  The sun was out, the clouds were high and light.  It was my first time at the Inn, so I was excited to see what kind of pictures would come from there.  It did not disappoint!  Super cool garden and porch for guests to enjoy.  I think it was just the quiet B&B feeling that Megan and Ben were looking for.  I’m gonna give it a thumbs up (and I think the wedding party would agree).
