Why I can’t wait to document your day

It is my greatest honor to document your special, intimate, once in a lifetime moments. I do not take it for granted one bit. It is an even greater honor to collaborate with you and tell your story in a way that is true and unique to you and you only...in a way that is artful and expresses your creativity. 

I have been in the wedding industry for 10 years in all different capacities and have been a professional photographer for 5 years now. It is my DREAM job and i'm unbelievably passionate about every part of it. I promise to give you the experience of a lifetime as well as give you photos that will last forever. 

Together, we will walk through this story-telling adventure together. I promise, you are going to love every moment. So what are you waiting for? Are you ready to have the most creative, once  in a lifetime experience?

- Laura and connor (couple)

"I truly cannot shout 'CHOOSE Kate Hensley as your photographer!!' loud enough. The pictures from me and Connor’s big day are OUT OF THIS WORLD and while Connor and I love them, so does everyone who sees them. It was super important to me to have someone who was going to see my vision and put it at the forefront of what was captured, and she did just that by literally knowing my timeline better than I did… Her pictures are so authentic and she somehow made us feel super natural in front of a camera. It really was just like someone was following us around all day - no cheesy poses, just raw, real moments. She was super flexible and I could tell she wanted me to have the best pictures possible… One thing that stuck out to me was our engagement shoot. We had a day planned, but I was concerned about the weather and Kate was SO WILLING to change the date (that means traveling + her accommodations) so that we were as happy as possible. It all ended up working out perfectly (you’d know if you saw the pics, lol). As IF her photography skills aren’t enough, I had a bunch of recommendations come in (from having multiple sisters and friends who had recently gotten married), but Kate initially stuck out to me because of how personable she is. That word doesn’t even do it justice - Kate sent me a goodie bag and hand written note 1 month away from the wedding just as an “I’m excited for you” message, called regularly to check in and make sure the day would be captured just as I wanted it, and honestly became a great friend. Having Kate as a photographer was an entire EXPERIENCE and the best decision I made when it came to my vendors."

- Kortnee and will (couple)

"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Kate on not one, but two occasions. Once for branding photos and the other a fun creative elopement shoot. Kate is sooo easy to be around. Instant ease that allows you to take the “pressure” off and be yourself in front of the camera. The results are real and authentic photos of the subject. The days of wanting staged photos are gone once you shoot with Kate. Her photos capture the essence of you and what a treasured gift that is to pass on."

- Slouise (actor and makeup artist)

"I could not recommend working with Kate enough! She is sincerely the most creative and talented photographer I have ever had the pleasure to work with. We worked together to create marketing material for my new makeup business as well as some personal branding photos for social media and her photography (as well as the over-all experience of the shoot and the locations she found for us) exceeded far above what I could even imagine what was possible! Not only is she extremely talented and easy to work with, Kate is also a very kind person who went above and beyond to make my visions a reality. I can't thank you enough Kate!"

On Your Wedding Day:

01

I promise to be your friend. It is so important to surround yourself with people that will love on you and encourage you on your big day. I am there to care for YOU and will do that in every way possible. I will keep your day as stress free as possible and really, be your hype girl as you marry your man!

02

I’ll arrive bright and early to settle in quickly and say hi to everyone before I start shooting. I want to make sure that everyone (especially you) is 100% comfortable and pumped for the day ahead.

03

 I’ll be the chameleon you want me to be – whether you want me to be the ringmaster herding everyone up for a shot, or to sneak around in the background, capturing all the natural, candid moments. No cheesiness or cringy, forced poses here!

04

Throughout your day, I’ll be weaving in and out to make sure I catch every precious moment, including moments that went unseen. That quick kiss at the dinner table or tucking that loose strand of hair behind your ear. All the moments that make your heart flutter.

This is where the magic happens

Editing your photos is one of my favorite parts of my work, it's where I get to make your story come to life and get to truly be an artist. That being said, it is never a rushed process for me. I spend hours pouring over your photos to make sure they tell your unique, true to you story....the one only you can tell. 

My style of editing comes from inspiration from vintage/retro vibes. I use more muted colors and some grain for texture. They come out feeling timeless. 

I will always  pour my heart and soul into recreating your day all over again, so that you will have memories to cherish for years to come

I take a lot of time to edit your photos in a way that is artful and reflects the story of your session or day. 

For weddings and elopements, you will receive 10-20 sneak peek photos within 3 days and your full gallery within 8-10 weeks.

For sessions, you will receive your photos within 2-4 weeks.

A second shooter is ALWAYS an option to add on to any of my packages! If you are unfamiliar with a second shooter, it is essentially a second photographer I would bring along with me that would get different angles/a different perspective. 

I am fully confident in photographing your wedding solo and would love to chat to see if a second shooter is right for you or not. I always bring photographers I work with frequently and trust tremendously.  

Do you have a second shooter and do I need one?
