who, me?

Hey you! Welcome to KEP. I'm Kate, owner and principal photographer (she/her). I'm a photographer living in the East Bay focussed on queer, non-binary, offbeat, and unique couples all over the globe.


I focus on LGBTQ+ weddings because, as a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community myself, I really felt a need to provide inclusive, safe, and unrestricted wedding services to everyone. My goal is that anyone who comes through my door feels seen, heard, appreciated, and celebrated during this exciting time in their life.

Everyone has a story and I feel like my job is to capture the essence of yours. I love getting together over a glass of wine to chat about your vision. My goal is to build a close connection with you from the minute you walk in so we’re ready to create some serious magic when your wedding arrives.

Experimenting with lighting, exploring new locations, and allowing you the space to be uniquely you in front of the camera always results in awesome photos that you’ll be stoked to share with family and friends. In addition, I offer tons of unique printing and album options, so your wedding photos don’t get stuck in the cloud never to be printed. I strive to make every second you spend with me a joyful occurrence that leaves you feeling thrilled about your wedding photography experience!
