I had been looking forward to Erin & Stephen’s Detroit Athletic Club wedding since Erin booked with me last year. Erin had been following me on Instagram for a while & knew my work very well. Nothing better than a client who throughly knows & enjoys your work! Not only have I loved working with Erin, Stephen, but their entire family was absolutely incredible the entire day. Such a joy to be around, and so much love was genuinely present. I truly loved spending the day with them all!
Erin & Stephen both got ready at the Detroit Athletic Club for their wedding. It was a beautiful day in Detroit, Michigan. Finally, a wedding weekend with no rain! Amen to that. Erin & Stephen had the sweetest first look. Watching Stephen getting emotional over his bride had me choking up behind the lens, for sure! Not only was he so enamored in her beauty, he also couldn’t keep ger eyes off of her, that entire day! You can even see it in a photo I captured of him just staring at her! Love it.
We then headed off to Old St Mary’s Catholic Church in Greektown for their ceremony. It is such a breathtaking classic cathedral. As you will see, their ceremony was effortless, and romantic. After popping some champagne outside of Old St Mary’s Catholic Church, we headed to Belle Isle for their wedding photos.
The day was that of a dream. Such a classic, beautiful, elegant Detroit wedding, to say the least. Erin looked like she was straight out of a Vogue magazine, and Stephen was clearly looking like he was featured in GQ. These two, man, just stunning!
Thank you again so much for choosing us to be apart of your unforgettable wedding day. I truly am grateful and honored to have documented your wedding day.
Congratulations you two! Wishing you a blessed and lifelong marriage full of happiness & love!

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!

Not only was Katelynn super informative about making crucial wedding decisions, but she did everything she could to make us truly feel special. She was flexible, patient, honest, and most of all kind. My husband and I love our engagements pictures and all of the incredible pictures she captured at our wedding. She thinks about every little detail in each shot. We now have these amazing memories that will last with us for the rest of our lives. She has a passion for what she does and will help make your wedding journey so memorable and special.
