MAKE Adventure Stories
When an exploratory call starts out with “Well, I know this might seem random, but could we…??? “ that’s absolutely music to my ears 😀 My name is Kate, and I am an adventurer and sporto home-based in the Atlanta Metro area!
After going a more “traditional” wedding/family/corporate photography route for a number of years, I had some of my outdoor friends ask me if I would photograph their cliff-top rock climbing wedding, as they didn’t know (and couldn’t find!!!) any wedding photogs that could *also* climb. (Who knew, right!?!) I agreed *without* hesitation, and it was an AMAZING weekend with one of the most touching & beautiful weddings I’d ever been part of. My sporty & outdoor peeps + the adventures I loved to do anyways = a mind blowing experience… The rest is history!
My little corner of the adventure photography world is that I encourage couples to actually DO the activities they love for their big day instead of feeling confined to the lists of ‘normal’ wedding venues we’re given. Backpacking the Appalachian Trail for a sunrise summit ceremony? Let’s do it! Mountain biking, rock climbing, kayaking, or sailing vows???? Totally! Something else at height, at speed, or off the grid? Heck yeah! I strive with each adventure experience—whether an elopement, intimate wedding, engagement, or, adventure session—to bring beautiful imagery to a meaningful place or activity, *not just* a pretty picture in a pretty place.
If all that that feels a bit ‘much’, no worries! I have mad respect for adventure-leaning weddings too! All that matters is you believe the idea of something *different* & *more amazing* than hotel ballrooms & commercial venues that churn out wedding after wedding. If that’s you, let’s talk. I absolutely believe that with careful research & planning, we can build a wedding experience with just the right amount of adventure for you and your partner, and/or your crew!
What about me? Well… my honey and I backpacked in the Grand Canyon for our honeymoon, and I’m addicted to being outside 😛 My sports of choice are constantly at war with each other for my free time! Hiking & backpacking. Rock climbing. Kayaking & SUPing. Road & Mountain Biking. Running. Camping & Van Life… I love them all! And, I must have been a nomad in another life, as I’m happiest when on the road:-) I’m stoked to meet you & your partner, and to experience what activities & places make your hearts sing as we build your perfect adventure wedding experience!
