Hi, I'm Katelyn

Maine wedding photographer & Educator

I specialize in romantic and adventurous Maine Wedding Photography. I love connecting with couples who love the New England landscape and want to include it in their day, whether that’s by the ocean somewhere in Acadia, or on top of a mountain in western Maine. I’ve been shooting weddings professionally for 8 years all around New England, celebrating and capturing super cool weddings with incredible couples.

I am so passionate about teaching others in a setting that works for them uniquely. This comes from years of working in a 1:1 and small group setting with kids and teens; learning together, growing through experiences, and coming up with solutions that were tailored to their personalities and needs. The same approach should apply to everyone when they invest in a mentor and their business. Everyone's journey and growth looks different, and my goal is to accommodate that unique path to help photographers create success for themselves.
