I'm Kat, and I'm an intimate wedding and elopement photographer based in Saint Paul, Minnesota - but I'll happily travel anywhere as long as there's a good hike or a coffee shop nearby (I don't actually drink coffee, I just like the viiibes).
As someone who grew up hating rom-coms and avoiding all things lovey-dovey, no one was more surprised than me when I found myself photographing weddings and crying at every ceremony and father-of-the-bride speech. My cold heart melted, and now I can't imagine doing anything other spending the day with two folks who are madly in loooove.
What I love most about this gig is capturing the authentic, genuine, and behind-the-scenes moments throughout your day. You'll never see me awkwardly posing you - I am alllll about making sure you feel comfortable and like YOURSELF. You probably will see me being a third-wheel all day and sprinting somewhere at least once (there's a reason I always wear sneakers!).
I was born in Venezuela and my family immigrated to the United States when I was five years old! I actually started kindergarten without being able to speak any English at all. I still speak Spanish fluently, and my favorite thing to do on the weekend is make arepas or empanadas for brunch.

My absolute favorite thing in the world is heading outside and doing something that makes you say "woooah". Kayaking, canoeing, camping, sky diving, bungee jumping, hiking in the desert, on cliffs, up mountains - you name it, I've done it. My dream is to visit every single national park!
My most recent adventure was road tripping through Colorado with my best friend. We slept in the car for a week, visited three national parks, hiked, and had the best time. Ready for the next adventure!
Love is love. Black lives matter. Immigrants make America great. Climate change is real. Women's rights are human rights.
