Katie & Alec couples are a special brand of people: They're joyful, full of life, & know they don't just want run-of-the-mill wedding photographers. They want an intentional, carefully-crafted experience so they can focus on what matters most: getting married! Our approach is to get to know every couple we serve so we can create genuine images that feel like them while planning & executing your photography with care. This starts with meeting over ice cream & for a double-date (because we believe meetings are way better when ice cream is involved) to get to know each other. After getting to know you in person, we’ll see if we're a good fit together and go from there...
Yay!! You officially want to be a part of the Katie & Alec family! Now let’s make sure your date is safe and secure so that we can make your dream a reality. We’ll send you an easy-to-use online booking system where you can review your custom package, sign your contract and pay your deposit to make everything officially official. It's as simple as ordering off of Amazon! Now that you’re an official Katie & Alec couple, it’s time to get the fun started!! ....
Next up is one of favorite parts of the experience, your engagement session! Right off the bat, we'll be sharing our exclusive style guide to help you look and feel your very best. From there, we'll get your date on the books and start talking locations. You can book your engagement session as soon or as late in the experience as you want. Have a specific season you love? We can plan your date around that.
Once your session date is here, we'll coach you through our poses and make sure you feel comfortable in front of the camera. It's such a fun, exciting experience centered around celebrating your marriage!
Once we’re 2 months out from your big day, we’ll start making sure that we’re completely prepared for your wedding with our wedding questionnaire! With this we'll gather all the information we need from you & teach you how to build your family-formal list so you won't miss a single shot. We also love creating carefully crafted timelines for our couples to ensure that you don’t miss out on your dream wedding photos! You know all of those gorgeous portraits, fun bridal party shots, and detail images that look like they are straight out of a magazine?? We work with all our Katie & Alec Couples to plan their day so that they can actually have images like that of their own! After years of photographing weddings we know how to create an ideal timeline for a photography-friendly wedding day so you can relax and know your in good hands!
It’s time to get pumped, enjoy yourself and let us work our magic! We believe in telling the complete story of our couples' wedding days and so we always shoot at least 8 hours. Your wedding day will go by so quickly and we'll be there to freeze all your favorite moments in time. Katie will focus on the details & portraits, Alec will be there to focus on the candid, emotional moments that will endure forever. You'll get the best of both worlds and not loose out on either those magazine worthy photos or the candid ones that pull you right back to the moment they were taken. One of our favorite parts of the wedding day is our portrait time with the newlyweds and getting to see you celebrated by your loved ones!
After your wedding day is over, you will receive a curated online gallery full of your wedding memories! It's easy to share with family & friends so you can spread the joy! Soon after your gallery is delivered, you will receive your album design (if you ordered an album!) and you can begin the customization process. All you have to do is check off your favorite photos in your gallery & we'll make sure to include those just for you. It's as easy as that!
We understand just how important this short season of engagement is between wedding planning and preparing for your marriage. Your wedding photos will be an enduring reminder of the love that started it all and will encourage your marriage for years to come. With us on your team you'll get great photos, a smooth experience, and more importantly two people who will cheer you on, encourage your marriage, and always be praying for you long after your wedding day has ended.
To say we were thrilled with our wedding pictures would be a MASSIVE understatement. My wife can't stop looking at them. Everyone that's seen them says the same thing, "They look SOOOO good."(And that's a direct quote) We love how bright and warm the pictures are and every time we look at them we are transported back to our wedding day. Aside from how amazing the pictures look, it was also about how great Katie and Alec are as people. They were genuinely excited for us to start our marriage journey. They stood by and took picture after picture of us with our friends, smiling the whole time. They even captured some great moments of our guests at the reception , which we really appreciated. If there was a 6th star...they'd deserve it. You wouldn't get married without a wedding dress...and you shouldn't get married without having these two as your photographers.
"You wouldn't get married without a wedding dress...& you shouldn't get married without having these two as your photographers."
“Katie and Alec are amazing, incredibly talented individuals and photographers. To say that they go above and beyond would be an understatement. Their thoughtfulness and kindness during our entire experience meant the world to us! We were stress free, and they were a huge reason why our wedding day went by so smoothly. And on top of all that, they produced some of the most beautiful wedding pictures I’ve ever seen. People still come up to me to compliment my pictures while saying, “they looked like they came right out of a magazine!” And they are totally right! Choosing Katie and Alec Photography was easily one of the best decisions we made throughout our wedding planning process!”
“People compliment our photos saying they look like they came right out of a magazine”
“These people are not only sweet, fun people, but they are also AMAZING at what they do! Their passion for loving and encouraging engaged and married couples is so evident in everything they do. It shows through every photo we got back from them. They made posing feel so natural and walked us through the whole thing. The light and airy feel and crystal-clear focus of their photo style makes it feel like a fairy tale. It's hard picking a favorite to hang in our home--they made us feel like models in a magazine! (Speaking of which, like, come on... they've been featured in Southern Bride magazine... nbd.) You will LOVE having Katie and Alec as your photographer! It was the best decision we made about the whole wedding! Love these two so dearly.”

“Book this sweet couple right now!!! From start to finish Katie & Alec have been such a joy to work with. They were very fun from the moment we met them and so responsiveness the entire wedding planning year. They made posing/kissing in front of a camera (which is not my favorite thing in the world) more enjoyable. And their quality of work is absolutely incredible!!! My family and friends cannot stop bragging about them!! They handled our 400 guest count “Big Fat Lebanese Wedding” so smoothly, which is definitely no easy process. You will definitely be gaining a great value/investment if you book them today!”

They will make your day perfect!”

“Amazing. That’s the first word I would use to describe Katie and Alec. They exceeded my expectations in every way possible. One of the things I loved most was the detail that went in to planning out our photos for our wedding. From our engagement session to our wedding day, Katie and Alec were committed to serving us and our needs. They listened to what we desired while also using their own knowledge and creative ability. Katie and Alec are always smiling and always offering their couples a reassuring voice that all is well and handled. I would use Katie and Alec again in a heartbeat”
“They exceeded my expectations in every way possible”
“Katie and Alec are fantastic people who do amazing work. They are so personable and easy to talk to which made us feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera.

We could not have been happier with their work and you will not regret choosing them as your photographers!”
“Amazing! We could not have been happier.”
“All of the memories from our wedding were captured perfectly. From the beautiful personal detail shots by Katie and the endearing candids by Alec, each photo felt intimate and entirely us! These two amazing people are not only excellent photographers, but they are genuinely some of the nicest people we have ever met! They really make an effort to get to know their clients to make sure that the photos truly reflect the personalities of the couple. Their passion and seemingly endless supply of energy made our wedding day that much more special. We truly cannot recommend them enough.”
