– Delightfully different elopement photography –
Ready for a wedding adventure tailored to your favorite types of spots, your best ideas, and your personalities? I’m Kathryn Cooper, owner and lead photographer of Kathryn Cooper Weddings, and I will help you create+document the most incredible celebration of your lives.
If you crave adventure, want to do something awesomely different on your wedding day, and consider yourself nontraditional/quirky/offbeat, then we’ll definitely get along swimmingly. I document weddings and elopements ranging from slightly unique to uber-adventurous, and I’d love to chat about your dream celebration!
My couples are real people–not models–who want to break away from spending their money on a crowd staring at their every move. Instead, we’ll discuss the best way to celebrate exactly what YOU’RE looking for, whether it’s 4 hours of views and waterfall vows in New York’s Catskills, or a multi-day adventure around my favorite spots in Iceland.
If you’re still digging my vibrant, adventurous style, I’m betting you’re also…
– Huge lovers of the outdoors and into quirky locations and epic activities
– Excited to get away from crowds and go for a hike/kayak/helicopter ride/glacier walk/parasailing adventure
– Lovers of adventurous, fun, uber-creative photos
My photography style is a modern-day blend of your personalities, my colorful and candid style, and personalized, innovative techniques that will make your photos stand out. I don’t just capture beautiful adventure photos: I actually get to know you and create a delightfully custom experience based on where we’re headed and what you love. The result? Uniquely YOU photos.
As a New York elopement photographer and destination wedding photographer, I photograph elopements and intimate weddings all around the country and world, and am based in both New York (Hudson Valley/NYC with travel to the Finger Lakes, Adirondacks, and entire Northeast) and California (Bay Area/Yosemite/Big Sur/Napa). I’ve also lived in Asia, Europe, Hawaii, and the Caribbean, and have photographed couples on 6 continents (all but Antarctica!). I’d love to trade travel tales that are awesome, crazy, and occasionally embarrassing while we’re hiking/boating/adventuring.
All couples are welcome at Kathryn Cooper Weddings! I take joy in capturing events for people of every religion or no religion, LGBTQ+ couples, and anyone else who is celebrating an important life milestone. Pets are welcome, too. Whether you want photos of your small ceremony in Yosemite, or want us to go on a whole weekend hiking and camping experience in Iceland, I’ll bring my 10+ years of worldwide photography experience and creative eye. Whether you’re eloping in New York City, getting married in the Catskills or Adirondacks, or saying your vows at a waterfall in the Finger Lakes, I cover all of the Northeast and more. I can’t wait to meet you and capture your celebration!
