MEET KATI NICOLE
I was born and raised in the PNW in a small little town named Anacortes, but have lived in Portland for the last 17 years ( ish ) and completely love it.
Although I’ve been shooting for over 6 years, I began seriously traveling to capture engagements, weddings and elopements in the beginning of 2017 and I haven’t looked back since. Travel has introduced me to so many opportunities to explore our world and to breach my comfort zone. Whether it’s hiking, camping, or jumping into a freezing cold lake/river/ocean, my goal in life is to chase adventure, to have fun, and to eat all the sour patch kids. One of my favorite things about my job is getting to interact and really get to know my clients, every time I meet a new couple for coffee or drinks, it’s as if I am meeting potential best friends, and this feeling is one of the best in the world. I like to do things a bit ( a lot ) differently too; I work with direction, with raw emotion and typically don’t do much, if any, posing. To me, this creates comfort with my clients and I, and on top of that, it’s way more fun, and hey, I like fun. My inspiration comes from my couples; listening to them tease each other as we hike up to a waterfall, or watching as a groom zips his new bride into her dress. These are the real moments I draw on and really find passion in capturing, and I would absolutely love to be a part of your adventure if you’re into having some fun together!

WHAT CLIENTS ARE RAVING ABOUT
We went in search of a photographer who could truly capture the moment and the people. We found that – and so much more – in Kati. Professional in every way, she listened to our specific needs and wants, asked the right questions, guided us in the process, and followed through with visually stunning photos from our special day. She offers a tremendous passion for her work as well as talent. In fact, I don’t know who was more excited that we were getting married…the two of us or her! She is – without question – the best photographer I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. Thank you, Kati!
I’ve never met anyone who could capture the most genuine moments! Kati did our engagement photos, and she is extremely talented. I am definitely flying her to our wedding destination so she can be our wedding photographer, I wouldn’t want anyone else to do it! On top of her amazing abilities as a photographer she is such a sweet person, and truly puts you at ease during the shoot. My fiancé and I had a blast during our session, and can’t wait for many more to come! Thanks Kati!!!
When we were looking for a photographer for our wedding, we got so much more than we could’ve imagined. With several people from around the country coming to celebrate our big day, we knew we needed someone who could not only capture that special day, but the emotion and essence of the people joining us. I’ve worked with a lot of photographers over the years and finding that in one person is really special. We are forever thankful she was there to capture our day.
