I would love to be able to tag along with you and help you create the ultimate package of images for your client. I am an extremely passionate person with a drive for excellence in all I do. Photography is a skill, that for me is self taught as well as improved through the wonderful encouragement of mentors. I have been in business for 6 years and have grown tremendously in my love of the art, my eye for the perfect shot and especially in my passion for shooting weddings. Confidence and assertiveness allows me to interact well with clients, effectively communicating to get the perfect shot. I also have a gentleness that allows me to understand and anticipate the needs of the Bride and/ or Groom, and a flexibility to go with the flow, allowing for the day to run as smoothly as possible. I have a flare for creativity, and I am always excited to continue to learn and master new techniques. Should you hire me as Associate or Second Shooter, I guarantee that I will jump in with both feet and give it my all!

“ KATE IS AN AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER, PERIOD, AND SHE IS SUCH AN ASSET TO OUR TEAM ON A WEDDING DAY! SHE CONTINUES TO BETTER HERSELF WITH EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES, LEARNING FROM OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS, AND HOSTING STYLED WEDDING SHOOTS. HER WORK IS HIGH-QUALITY AND ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!
ON A WEDDING DAY, KATE COMES PREPARED WITH A STYLING KIT, TOP-NOTCH EQUIPMENT INCLUDING OFF-CAMERA FLASH EQUIPMENT. SHE IS EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL, YET LIKES TO HAVE FUN WORKING TOGETHER AND WITH OUR COUPLE. SHE MAKES SURE THE BRIDE/GROOM ARE TAKEN CARE OF BY OFFERING THEM A DRINK (AS WELL AS ASKING US IF WE NEED ANYTHING). SHE IS CONFIDENT IN HANDLING THE GROOM PREP AND GROOMSMEN PORTRAITS SOLO, AND SHE IS VERY HELPFUL DURING FAMILY PORTRAITS AND THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE DAY.
WE TRUST HER IN REPRESENTING OUR OWN BUSINESS AS A SECOND SHOOTER AND AS AN ASSOCIATE PHOTOGRAPHER. IF YOU HIRE KATE AS YOUR SECOND SHOOTER, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED; WE PROMISE!"

"KATE HAS A VERY WELCOMING PERSONALITY, IS A HARD WORKER AND EAGER TO CATER TO THE BRIDE AND GROOM IN ANY WAY THAT SHE IS ASKED WITHOUT HESITATION. I ENJOYED HER FRESH PERSPECTIVE TO DOCUMENT A WEDDING DAY WITH ME RECENTLY AS WELL AS THE WAY SHE VERY KINDLY AND OPENLY INTERACTED WITH THE GUESTS AROUND HER. KATE’S ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND OUT OF THE BOX IDEAS ARE WHAT MAKES HER STAND OUT FROM THE REST!!
Kate is prompt to respond to emails and great at communication which takes a load of stress off of you already. She is switching between her camera bodies as I am as well to get different angles which is a huge help when delivering your client a variety of images. She brings great energy and professionalism to the day while being a calming colleague. I have really enjoyed working with Kate and trust her to handle even the rowdiest of groomsmen too!
“KATE MARTIN HAS A CREATIVE EYE. SHE HAS MANY STRENGTHS WHEN IT COMES TO SHOOTING. SHE THRIVES WITH DETAILED IMAGES AND IS GREAT WITH CAPTURING THE CANDID MOMENTS IN THE MAKING. SHE IS FUN AND EASY TO WORK WITH, AND KNOWS HER ROLE AS THE SECOND SHOOTER.”
