About Me

Hi! I’m Katy, and I want to be your friend. Well, I want to be your photographer, but mostly, I want to be your friend. I am a Sports Media and Communication student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, but when I’m not photographing Husker football, I’ve got my camera at the ready for weddings and lifestyle shoots. I love photography because it’s a vehicle for me to perfect an art I love so dearly, and to meet new people. It’s not about the business transaction for me—it’s about the person-to-person connection that happens between me, you, and the light in my camera.


It all started when my Grandpa bought me my first camera. He actually worked for Kodak, and I grew up around photography, always finding joy and nuance in each captured moment. I got really into photography when I got involved with Yearbook at Millard West High School (What’s up, Mr. Hilburn?!). I began shooting some senior portraits for my friends, completing yearbook photo op assignments, and eventually, I started taking my photography more seriously. After taking some digital photography courses on shooting, editing and business from photography industry leaders Amy and Jordan Demos, I was ready to level up. 

Now, I primarily shoot weddings and lifestyle portraits (but I’m down for anything). My focus is on natural, joyful and true-to-life photos. I am here to capture the beauty that already exists all around us and preserve your special day, your bright moments, and your important, timeless stories. I like to think I’m pretty down-to-earth and easy to work with, and I’m always ready to invite your dog(s) to a shoot. Our time together will be fun, easy-going, and confidence- boosting! 

So, let’s make it happen. 

-Katy :)
