MEET KATIE

We are storytellers. Our philosophy is that creating real relationships with our clients will allow us to put more love and personality into our images. 

MEET KELLIE

I am so happy to be a part of Team KEP! Katie has taken me under her wing and I have grown so much in my time with her as an assistant and now as a second shooter. I believe there is beauty in every moment, big or small. I love being able to suspend that moment in time, knowing that someone will cherish it for years to come. That is what puts me in my happy place- along with the moonlight, listening to a new favorite song, and finding a new adventure. Add cheese to any of those scenarios and I am in my own version of heaven.

Hi! I'm Katie, the owner and photographer at Katherine Elena Photography. I grew up in the great state of New Jersey (don't laugh!) but have made North Carolina my home since 2006 and I love everything about the South. I have three of the sweetest little doggies ever, and an unbelievably supportive husband. When I am not sitting behind the camera, I am planning our next adventure. Seeing the world is my happy place. I also love cozying up on the porch with a good crossword puzzle and a cup of tea. I can't wait to learn more about you!

He is my rock. I can't imagine going on all our adventures without him.

Yep, we have three pups. It's not always easy, but their cuddles can make anything better!

We were a Yankees family growing up. Since moving to Charlotte, I've also fallen in love with Panthers football and college Basketball.

Exploring the world makes my heart happy. Nothing is better than adventures with my husband and camera.

travel

This is undoubtedly one of the most exciting times in your lives and choosing someone to capture it is a huge decision. I absolutely love everything about weddings and about all of the couples that I get a chance to work with. My philosophy as a wedding photographer is that I don't want to be just another check off your list. I want to get to know YOU as a person, as a couple, as a friend. Throughout our time together, you'll get lots of special goodies and some amazing information that can be found in my client magazine (yes, a magazine tailored just for my brides!).

Katie shot our engagement portraits as wells as our wedding and she was very attentive, relaxed, and fun throughout the whole process. We love our photos and she was very helpful when I had questions even after the big day!

Katie is so great to work with. She has such an amazing talent and I couldn't have asked for a better photographer to capture this time in my life. On our wedding day she was the calm during the storm. Her laid back and calm personality is what kept me calm. I can't say enough how much me, my husband, and family adore her! Please book with Katie it will be the best decision you make!!

I once read, "if you leave the meeting with a photographer and feel like you were just hanging out with a friend, hire them immediately!" This is Katie exactly! She is so easy to talk to and feel comfortable with, plus her photos are absolutely breathtaking! HIRE HER IMMEDIATELY!!

First and foremost, BOOK HER, you will thank yourself later! From day one when I met Katie I felt at ease. As a person who isn't as comfortable being in front of the camera, I knew we needed to find someone who could give direction to get the best shots. At the meet and greet I could tell Katie was experienced, understood the importance in details and is a part of your team throughout the planning journey. Her passion for her craft runs deep and it shows when she is in her element. It was refreshing to have such a genuine spirit during a chaotic day. The moral of the story is I knew Katie would make our special day wonderful but she exceeded my expectations and made it perfect! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

My husband and I were overwhelmingly delighted with having Katie as the lead photographer for our wedding! Right from the beginning we knew that Katie was going to be perfect for us. The engagement photos captured the love that we shared in the ideal romantic way that we wanted. I really didn’t think things could get better, but then she shot my bridal photos in October and then our wedding photos in November. We were thrilled at the amazing photos that she captured! In the weeks leading up to the wedding she was incredibly attentive, trying to plan out all of the logistics of our day to make sure we were able to get all of the photos that we wanted. She was truly fantastic and I would highly recommend her to my closest friends or family members to capture any special occasion!
