MEET KATE SALLEY
Oh hello. I’m Kate. I was born and raised outside of Denver, CO – but have been fortunate to travel the world as a part time flight attendant. My favorite place I’ve been to is Laos (world’s best kept secret, you’re welcome). I’m wild about traveling, love, babies, my faith, photography (duh), and Thai food. My husband thinks I’m addicted to coffee (debatable). My cat is hands down the coolest cat on the street. And I absolutely LOVE being a wedding photographer. I am in search of those madly in love, adventurous couples. The ones who don’t mind a little wind or getting dirty or going on a hike at sunrise. The ones who laugh at each other and don’t take themselves too seriously. The ones who appreciate good lighting and being in nature. If this sounds like you, let’s chat!!
These last couple years I have been developing an approach towards wedding photography that involves great depth in inviting people to see into your story. I want to capture the organic moments that represent your wedding day so that generations to come will interact with your images and feel the emotion and understanding of actually being there. I love candid shots that express authenticity and I am always keeping my eye out for those key moments. Weather you are eloping to Iceland or having a BBQ in your grandparent’s backyard I strongly believe that this part of your story deserves the highest level of preservation it deserves. I consider my style documentary and photojournalist. I do my best to capture the day as it naturally unfolds. My goal is to help make you feel comfortable and relaxed – this creates the more genuine and authentic photos. Engagement sessions or portraits at the wedding will be a mini adventure that make you fall in love with each other even more.
More fun facts about me: I love thrift store shopping. My husband and I are hoping to adopt some kiddos in the next couple years. My favorite drink is an old fashioned. I am a 4 on the Enneagram and my love language is quality time. Also, my worst fear is Karaoke.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE RAVING ABOUT
“Kate was very easy to work with – I am from Chicago and I decided to have our wedding in Colorado. She responded to any emails quickly and was even able to meet me in person for coffee (while I was visiting Colorado) to discuss some extra details about everything. When I couldn’t find a makeup person, I reached out to her and she gave me a list of good makeup people in the area!
She is also an extremely talented photographer who captured the spirit of our wedding. We loved all of her shots and we loved working with her. Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer who was fun, flexible, easy to work with, and talented.”
“We were absolutely thrilled with Kate and felt so lucky to have worked with her on our wedding day. She captured our day beautifully and artistically…the end result is nothing short of stunning. She has such a calming and easy-going presence, yet is also incredibly professional. I cannot recommend her enough! Thank you, Kate for providing us with photos we will be amazed at and will cherish for the rest of our lives!”
“Kate photographed our engagement and wedding pictures, and she did a beautiful job. It was really important to me to have someone who could capture feeling, the little details and our mountain backdrop on our wedding day, Kate did that perfectly. Our engagement and wedding pictures are stunning and I get a lot of compliments on them. I highly recommend Kate for any life event that you want to capture.”
