I'm a wife and a mom to a toddler and two rescue pups. I love sunsets, margaritas, gardening, making lists, and going on adventures. I hate being the center of attention.

I'm a professional wedding photographer based in East Greenwich, Rhode Island and I love every part of my job photographing weddings. From the subtle glances, to the tears of joy, to the epic dance moves. Capturing your special moments is a responsibility I do not take lightly.

I regularly photograph weddings in Newport, Cape Cod, Connecticut, and the Boston Area.

BEST OF 2022



Simply put, I believe your wedding day should be as uninterrupted, unscripted and unforgettable as possible. After all, you spent months planning the perfect wedding, you deserve to enjoy every moment of it!

My ultimate goal is to tell the story of your wedding fully and authentically. I don't stage anything, I let real moments unfold naturally. I want you to be able to laugh, cry, dance, and enjoy your wedding day without stopping to manufacture photos.

I also believe in taking a little time to make some beautiful candid-posed wedding portraits. We'll find beautiful light, stunning backdrops, and I'll help you be yourselves in the photos.

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 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. [...] 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!

Katie was a joy to work with leading up to our wedding, she is an absolute PRO! [...] 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!



I'd love to hear from you!
