Every move we make is based on intention and a heart of service. With an incredibly organized and detail-oriented approach, we produce a personal and stress-free experience. Our hope is that everyone we work with feels like the most important person in the room – especially our clients. We guide each of our clients, providing direction that gives them the confidence to feel comfortable in front of the camera.
After over 9 years and 200+ weddings photographed, we have the passion, knowledge, and experience to provide an incredible experience. Our team offers both photo + films to ensure that you get a seamless experience with a consistent style.
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, thoughtfully-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 + wedding film 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 offerings selections, 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? Want to travel somewhere fun? We can plan your date around that. You can get as creative with your session as you want, from renting a vintage car to incorporating a bouquet of fresh flowers.
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 and film story 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 + film! 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 digital memories like that of their own! After years of shooting weddings we know how to create an ideal timeline for a photography + film-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! For films, you get a gorgeous custom gallery as well with the ability to download your film and ceremony video with ease. 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 + film 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 + film, 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.
Not only are Katie and Alec incredibly talented photographers, they are some of the sweetest, most genuine people you will ever meet. They truly invested in us and made us feel calm and comfortable throughout the planning process and our wedding day. I can always count on Katie to hype me up and make me feel like a million bucks, and I can count on Alec to crack a joke and put everyone at ease. They kept us on time without rushing us, allowing us to enjoy the moment while still getting every photo we wanted. Thanks to them, our engagement and wedding photos are classic, timeless, and true to life, perfectly capturing and preserving our memories. I feel so truly blessed to know Katie and Alec, and I’m so grateful for the love they’ve poured out on us. More than just our photographers, we count them as life-long friends, and I know they will be cheering us on in our marriage for years to come.
"Thanks to them, our engagement and wedding photos are classic, timeless, and true to life, perfectly capturing and preserving our memories."
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."
I have too many amazing things to say about Katie & Alec. We chose them knowing how beautiful our photos would turn out but we did not know how sweet, funny and dedicated these two would be. Their commitment to us as a couple not only made us feel more comfortable around them, but helped us with our stress level during difficult times. When we sadly had to postpone our destination wedding due to COVID, they kept their word to making our wedding day special and drove from Alabama to our home in NC to photograph our small 10 person ceremony. I am forever thankful that I will have pictures from our wedding day, even if it wasn’t how we planned. Moving past that day, they were by our side to be available for any day we needed for our postponement. We ended up celebrating our 1 year anniversary with a vow renewal at our original ceremony location in Newport, RI with Katie & Alec by our side. As a bride, you want to know that your vendors care about YOU and I can’t imagine either of our days without them. We now have the most beautiful photos from the best days of our lives and two new friends by our side!

“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”
There are no words to describe how amazing Katie & Alec are. They supported my husband and I through 3 postponements during covid. They captured our engagement photos, elopement day, bridal portraits, and our long awaited wedding day. Every photo captured my husband and I’s relationship perfectly!
They became like friends to us and made such a lasting impact on our wedding season and life. There are many amazing things about Katie & Alec. Having a husband and wife duo is a plus because they showed us all of the poses, they both captured photos, and Alec was the best veil tosser. Katie fixed my hair many times in photos because she knew I cared about the details. To explain their character even more, Alec drove all the way to their house during the wedding to bring me shout wipes. Katie also bustled my dress too many times to count since it kept falling out. They are so so sweet and even our guests were raving about them! They went above and beyond these past 2 years. We 100% will use them for our future family photo needs, because we are now apart of the KAfamily. You can be apart of their family too and you won’t regret it!!!
"When you book Katie & Alec, you are not just getting photographers, you are getting the most CARING people who truly are excited to celebrate YOU."
“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.”
“Reasons why you will love Katie & Alec: It was the best decision we made about the whole wedding”
“Katie and Alec are nothing short of amazing! They get the smallest details and make sure that you get everything that you want! They pay very close attention to detail and we could not imagine using anyone else for our special day! We just got our photos back and we are so in love! Highly recommend using them! They will make your day perfect!”
“Katie & Alec are nothing short of amazing!”
Truly the best!! Katie and Alec went above and beyond for everything with us! They’re not just a vendor on your list; they truly care about you as a couple and want to get to know you outside of being your photographer. They are extremely personable, professional, and quick to respond. They continually checked in on us during our engagement season to see how we were during and to see if we needed anything. And obviously their pictures are flawless!! We got our engagement and wedding pictures in a very reasonable amount of time and we were blown away at how beautiful they were!! I cannot recommend Katie and Alec enough!
"Truly the best!! "
“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. They are client focused with their timely delivery of photos and directing families and the bridal party into the perfect positions the day of. Katie and Alec are thoughtful and reassuring throughout the wedding process and coordinate with you for a detailed timeline of the day, which was so helpful! 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.”
