Hey everyone! My name is Katie Carlson. I'm a twenty-something adventure photographer based out of the Midwest. I'm an old soul who longs for adventure. We love taking spontaneous road trips to places we decide the night before to visit. I love listening to music and hanging out on the couch when I have free time. I live for cheesy 80's movies and being barefoot. I am married to my best friend/best second shooter ever, Jake! We got married in the mountains in October, and it was the most perfect day ever. We love star gazing late at night. We are also obsessed with Ed Sheeran. We have a fur child named Daisy, and shes honestly the coolest dog I have ever met. My family and friends means more to me than just about anything else on the planet.
I love anything that allows us as a team to think outside of the box. If you have a crazy idea for a session, please let me in. As long as it speaks true to who you are, I'm totally down with it. I specialize in intimate weddings & couples photography. My absolute favorite thing is capturing couples who are crazy in love, whether it's engagements, anniversaries, or just because. I want to capture that real, raw love that most people hope to find. I want people to feel something when they look at my work. In 40 years, when your grandkids ask about the pictures hanging on your wall, I want them to able to feel the love and joy radiating from that old faded picture. When memories start to fade, pictures are all we have left and I love that I get to document the most important day of peoples lives.
I am all about letting the wind blow your hair like crazy. I am so down to chase after the insane sunsets to catch the last bit of light. I will run up the side of a mountain to make sure I capture the perfect shot for you guys, the one that you can blow up to a poster size and hang on your wall. I love raw and authentic moments, and I live for the perfect imperfections the happen at every shoot. Getting messy, hopping fences, and exploring new places is what I live for, so if it's for you too, we will be the perfect match! I also know that my style isn't for everyone, and I am totally okay with it, but if it is for you let's hangout for coffee, tea, pizza, and talk about it!
