Photographing Kayla and Cody’s wedding day in Clarkston, Michigan a couple weeks ago was completely beautiful! Kayla reached out to me after we photographed another brides wedding that they attended.  To say I was excited might a bit of an understatement! Their intimate Clarkston, Michigan wedding at The Pine Knob Mansion & The Carriage House was simply stunning. Kayla wore a gorgeous convertible Hayley Paige gown! Her whole bridal look was so breathtaking. Just wait until you see her dress, when she changed the convertible gown into a fitted dress, jaw dropping!

Kayla & Cody’s day started out with a torrential down pour. I am sure as any bride, this might be a little stressful. God willing, the rain all subsided as soon we arrived to The Carriage House. These two said I do outside under beautiful lights, and in front of all their loved ones.  Soon after, they celebrated with a dinner surrounded by their very closest family and friends! The entire day couldn’t have been more splendid!

To the newlyweds, truly cannot thank you enough for entrusting us to document your wedding. I am so thankful that our paths crossed, and I cannot wait for you to see all of these photos! Congratulations again you two!

Meet Kate

 I cannot imagine our special day without her. From the moment I inquired back in August of 2020, to our wedding day October 2021, Kate was with us every step of the way. She was amazing at communicating, answering my (many) questions, and making us feel so comfortable in front of the camera! Throughout this process, she\ became a great friend as well. On our wedding day, she made sure we stayed on track with timing, and made it a priority to ensure my husband and I were taken care of. Her positive energy, flexibility, and expertise made the day so much fun and so memorable. Kate perfectly captured our love--her photographs are of the highest quality and have unique touches that represent each of her clients. We are so very thankful that we had Kate be apart of our wedding day. She went above and beyond to make our day everything and more!

We were so lucky to have Katelynn as our photographer! She was truly amazing to work with! We found Katelynn through a friend who had previously booked her for her wedding. Wedding photos were really important to me and I wanted memories that we could cherish for the rest of our lives. After seeing her work, we knew that we wanted her to capture our wedding day! She made coordinating locations and poses stress free. We had a large bridal party and were a little worried about pictures being chaotic, but Katelynn was so patient with everyone and made it look like a breeze! Her kindness radiated all day and our families could not say enough good things about her. She was so great at making us feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera! She also made my sunset and veil photo dreams come true with her amazing photography skills! We are so in love with every picture that she took! She captured the best memories for us and we can’t recommend her enough!
