Every love story is unique, and I want to tell yours in a way that is authentic to who you are as a couple. During your wedding I will be a photojournalist, a fine-art photographer and a portrait photographer. In the end, I want to create images that blow you away. Photos that show just how beautiful the day was!
My biggest goal is to create images that are deep enough to hold the memories of your day. A day that was everything you wanted it to be! You will also have someone you can come back to for photography that you know will cater everything to your needs while capturing beautiful work.
It is important to me to get to know you so I can give you the best service and photography.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How would you describe your photography style?
While my photography comes from a fine art perspective, my main goal is to tell the story of your day and your love. Sometimes I like to blend in and take a photojournalistic approach, other times I set the scene and my intent is to produce fine-art. The family portraits part of my weddings are usually classic portraiture. In any case, my style comes from a combination of inspiration I feel in the moment and what I know about my couple's vision for their wedding photography.
What are your wedding day rates?
My clients spend between $900 and $3,200. You can view my collections here. Collections serve as a guide to Katiedid Wedding Photography. If you do not see a Collection that fully meets your needs, please email me and I will be happy to create a Custom Wedding Collection for you.
Why should we hire you?
I will make images that are what you wanted them to be; and then some! Everything I do is about making my couples happy. Being able to serve my clients in a way that sets them at ease is very important to me. I will be a positive presence on your wedding day. You two will have someone you can come back to for photography that you know will bring the joy and fun while capturing beautiful work. With me you will know that I have you covered. It's one less thing to stress out about!
Do you book destination weddings?
A large amount of my weddings here in the OBX are with couples who are coming from out-of-town. I love meeting with my couples long before their wedding day so that they can get to know me and make sure I am the right fit for them.
Are you getting married somewhere outside of the OBX and want me to be your photographer? I love to travel! I like to get to a city two days before the event to get my bearings and have a good plan for photography. Fill out the contact form and I'll send you a custom quote for your location!
How do I order an album and what is the album process?
One of my wedding coverage packages includes a custom album. When the gallery is uploaded you will have the opportunity to select your favorites for the album. Then I will send you a proof for approval. We will work together until we have the perfect layout for you. At the end we will go over a couple final options like cover material and color. If your coverage collection does not include an album you can order one on your online gallery!
Who will be photographing our wedding?
I hope you choose Katiedid Photography to be your wedding day photographers. If so, I'll see you there! Every package includes photography coverage by me. Most of my plans also include a second photographer.
How do we book?
Questions answered and you're ready to commit? Awesome! When you're ready to make it official I'll send you a link to a custom online portal just for you! This is the space where you will have your contract, payment portal, and photography planning materials all in one place!
To reserve your wedding date I require a 50% deposit & signed contract. The remaining 50% is due 2 weeks before your wedding day. You can even choose to autopay to give you one less thing to do the month before your day!
How do we schedule a session with you?
Because of my busy weekend schedule with weddings, I only schedule portrait sessions Monday-Thursday.
The best way to set up a session is to give me a call when you're ready to book. I tend to book up fast and chatting over the phone is the best way to give you up-to-date availability. It's also a great way to start planning your session!
To ensure my clients receive individualized care, I take on a limited number of weddings per year. I always want to provide the best service to make my couples feel at ease, knowing their vision for their wedding day photography is in good hands.
Most of my wedding coverage packages include:
A second shooter
Engraved flash drive in a keepsake box
Sneak peak within 48 hours of the event with social sharing
Custom editing: Over the years I have honed my editing process making images look their absolute best.
What people are saying about Katiedid Photography:
“Thank you Katie for taking these lovely photos of my wedding. Our family is in awe of how beautiful they are! ” -Emily
"One word... AMAZING. Katie and her assistant did an AMAZING job capturing our day and I honestly could not be happier with the photos. I highly recommend her!!" -Rochelle
"Katie did an absolutely fantastic job! Her photos came out absolutely beautifully and we could all not be happier. On top of doing an outstanding job professionally, she was so much fun to have at the wedding! There is no doubt that she added to the experience in many ways, and she was worth every penny. When I need a photographer in the future, I have no doubt that I will hire her." -Brie
“Katiedid Photography is a dream to work with – she’s very patient with children sessions, which makes parents feel so much more at ease. She’s also very flexible and inventive. We were at a loss for where to do my son’s smash cake session, and she found inspiration and the perfect backdrop from our shed in the back yard (seriously, she made our shed look fabulous, and our son, of course too!). With my most recent maternity session, I felt like I was apologizing over and over for my 2 year old’s tantrums, but she easily made the best of the situation and I can’t wait to see the proofs from that session!” -Lauren
“Katie is an AMAZING photographer! She is extremely creative, very respectful of your wishes and will do whatever she can to make them come true! She photographed my wedding and captured all of our meaningful and special moments! She is hilarious and an overall joy to work with! We would definitely use her company again and we couldn’t have asked for a better package, price or photographer! Highly recommend her!" -Whitney
“I cannot say enough positive things about Katie. Just go ahead and meet with her. She has the perfect balance of professionalism, charisma and sense of humor. All you have to do is stand there and follow her directions and believe me you will not regret it. She did our engagement photos and our wedding and folks cannot stop saying how amazing she was. The best part is that she lets you enjoy the night with your family and friends, captures it all and never makes it feel invasive at all. The quality of photos is unmatched. We are so excited to continue working with her.
Thank you Katie!!!!” -Karla
“Katie’s AMAZING! Once I saw her photos, I knew we wanted her as our wedding photographer. From the very start, she was super responsive and upfront with her contract, expectations, and price. She answered all of my questions ASAP and kept in communication with me throughout the process. She arrived early on the day of my wedding and we were able to get some amazing shots of my wedding party getting ready. Her second shooter and photo assistant were also friendly and easy to work with. Our photos are coming back, and I'm totally in love with them. Katie may hear from me again in a few years for baby photos! She is a dream and I'm so happy she was there to capture our special day.” -Jennifer
“We have absolutely nothing but great things to say about Katie and her crew! They are SO friendly, fun, professional and amazing at what they do! We even had some picky requests and they were more than happy to accommodate us.” -Kristen
“My husband and I used Katie for our wedding in November and we absolutely love her! Everything from the beginning to the end has been such an easy process. She did our engagement and wedding day photos and we love them! Our wedding day went by so fast (just as everyone says it does) but we have beautiful photos to relive the best day of our life all over again.”
