Rhode Island Wedding Photographer

Hi, I'm Katie!

I’m a professional wedding photographer based in Rhode Island and love photographing weddings.  I get told often that I have a calming effect on people.  Turns out that’s a pretty useful quality for a wedding photographer.  After all, I see people during one of the most emotional days of their lives…and I wouldn’t have it any other way.  Being there to capture every hilarious, joy-filled, tender moment on your big day is why I do what I do.  And I’d love to tell your story and help you relive the magic of your day again and again.

To Wedding Photography

I am a documentary-style photographer, which means I like to keep it real.  Simply put, I believe your wedding day should be as uninterrupted, unscripted and unforgettable as possible.  This means way less time posing in front of the camera and way more time out on the dance floor with family and friends.  

After all, you spent months planning the perfect wedding, you deserve to enjoy every moment of it, and I’ll be there to capture everything as it happens.

Don’t worry – we’ll get some beautiful formal photos too.  When the time comes, I’ll find the best lighting and backgrounds and snap away so we can get you back to your party as soon as possible.

Katie and Brave Hearts Photography are the BEST

We had an absolute blast working with Katie! From our first meeting in November through our wedding day in July, Katie was awesome. She made our engagement session an unforgettable time and then absolutely CRUSHED it on our wedding day. She was so well prepared in terms of equipment and knowledge of my wife and I as well as our wedding party. She lightened the mood and was able to capture the joy of our day so perfectly. Her demeanor and the way she handled herself made her blend right in and the photos she got were breathtaking. I would recommend Katie in a heartbeat.

Friendly, Flexible, Patient and TALENTED!

We had the best time working with Katie at Brave Hearts! She was such a joy to work with, and so endlessly patient with our requests and vanity (two Leo brides is no joke!) She took incredible photos that perfectly capture the joy and energy of the day - we are so grateful to have so many awesome shots! She is incredibly professional, but so friendly and flexible; and her work is just stunning. We had the best day, and the photos show it!

Curacao Destination Wedding

Brave Hearts Photography did an amazing job for my destination wedding in Curacao. She was very professional and easy to work with. Katie has a very laidback style and is flexible in terms of helping you capture your vision. What I really liked about her work is that she knew how to capture the wedding moments in a natural way. After our wedding ceremony, we had a brass band parade that Katie captured so well, the picture she took actually ended up going viral all over Curacao on the front cover of numerous newspaper! We were so surprised but thrilled to have this additional memory and we honestly have to thank Katie for capturing such an amazing shot. I would definitely recommend Katie for photography work, simply amazing.

Katie was a joy to work with leading up to our wedding, she is an absolute PRO! I was unsure of how everything would be coordinated on the day of, and Katie made sure it all happened for us - she knows exactly what needs to be done in order to capture all of the right moments and she made sure it happened in the most natural and comfortable way for everyone. Her presence is one you want to have around on your wedding day. If you are deciding between photographers for something, I can honestly say you will be blown away by Brave Hearts!
