Katie was great to work with. She took family pictures for us with our 2 year old who was not behaving well at all! She was super patient and somehow managed to get great pictures even though he was crying almost the whole time!Oct 22, 2018Verified
Katie was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! She is very responsive and her customer service skills ate superb. I've found my forever photographer!!!Sep 17, 2018Verified
Katie was a pleasure to work with and the photos turned out better than I could have imagined! She was patient and engaging with my reluctant crew and did an amazing job capturing our personalities and interactions (even with my wild and wiggly 3 year-old). I highly recommend Anchor + Oak!Aug 26, 2018Verified
Katie was the best! She was incredibly easy to work with, kind, and attentive. On top of that, her photos are GORGEOUS! I can’t stop looking at our photos. She captured us perfectly, with our banter and silliness. I highly recommend Anchor + Oak!Dec 12, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Due to the competitive nature of Saturday weddings, rates have a minimum of $1,500 starting at 4 hours. (300-500 final images) Keep in mind, when hiring a photographer, you're hiring an artist! Things you should look for are style, quality and consistency. The reason wedding photography is pricey is because we invest thousands of dollars in high-end equipment + software into providing the best experience for those on the other end of our camera. It takes a lot of money, time + talent to perfect our craft so that you can receive the best of those three! My rates are already discounted through Thumbtack. I am willing to work within your budget if it is within reason!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I highly value capturing the true personality of the people I create with so asking questions and learning about you is a priority of mine! WEDDINGS: When booking to secure your date, there is a $300 deposit to reserve your day and a contract that states we are both committed to each other for that date. My process includes getting to know you! I want to hear your story so I can share it best through your personalized images. ENGAGEMENT: when booked, I'll ask you questions via email to get to know you as a couple and best prepare for your session. If booked within a wedding bundle, I send a fun worksheet to fill out together. PORTRAIT: meeting 15 mins before we begin shooting will allow us to get familiar and comfortable. I am very casual and if you're nervous in front of the camera, don't worry, I'm not! We will certainly have a great time and create some memories. *note: a contract and a deposit is standard within wedding bookings to secure the day for both parties.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am completely self-taught. 7 years ago I embarked on the journey of freelance photography and never looked back. I hold a BA in Musical Theatre from the American Musical Dramatic Academy of Los Angeles, so storytelling has been a theme and passion of mine since I can remember.
