I have been a professional photographer for about 4 years. I dropped out of law school and jumped into the wedding industry with both feet! It’s been a party!
I am absolutely happiest when I am putting others at ease. It is sometimes no fun being in front of a camera so I do my best to keep everything relaxed and efficient!
I love couples – even more on their wedding day than during an engagement session – If that is ok to say! 🙂 They are just filled with joy and that comes through on film! Beautifully happy people = beautiful photos. It just makes my job a cinch!
I am always noticing beautiful things to photograph while I’m driving. And a few times I have whipped out my giant DSLR while in the driver’s seat and snapped away one-handed. Probably the most crazy/criminally negligent thing I’ve done!
Seriously – the happy people. And getting the family formal portraits done as quickly as possible. Oh, and the CAKE!!
That most of it entails sitting on my bum in front of a computer. But that my happiest moments are when I am with them!
I fiddle around with all sorts of other hobbies. I LOVE woodworking and hiking. And reading nerdy Sci-Fi novels!
Because I am living away from Portland (my main wedding network) for a couple of years, I have started a stock photography arm of my business on the side – selling pre-styled stock photos on Etsy. I create beautiful backdrops for graphic artists and web designers to drop their designs onto for a sweet-action professional look in a jiffy! KateMaxShop.etsy.com
