What I do for you

I don’t just go through the motions or run through a standard list of poses, because your wedding deserves more than that. Although I have a consistent style, every wedding is different. I have a little notebook that I write shooting ideas in, and start with a blank page for every wedding. I won’t make you stand and smile at the camera endlessly, because there’s a lot more to uncover in your relationship. On your wedding day I get right in the thick of everything, on the dance floor and sometimes on the ground. During your portrait session I direct you and help you not feel awkward, because seriously no one knows what to do in front of a camera.

Aside from the photos, I’m a logistics person. I look ahead at traffic conditions, photo permit requirements, and anything else that could be a source of stress. I love planning and most people don’t, so I’m happy to take the reigns and help you out with the annoying stuff.

It’s pretty simple: I want you to have a good experience and be in love with your photos. I’m a one-woman business, so when you hire me you’e getting my passion, knowledge and photography expertise, and that’s the whole package. Nothing too froofy or over-the-top sweet, just artistic, candid photos and a calm experience.


Your family and friends, the little details you made by hand, the weird faces you guys make, the dirt on the bottom of your niece’s feet, cake crumbs, the epic landscape around your venue.


I’m super responsive to emails and calls–no waiting for days on end to hear back from me. I want to take away from your stress, not add to it. I keep you in the loop along the way and am all about planning ahead.

Who I am

I’m Kathleen, a 5’2″ Italian-American wedding photographer based in Southern Connecticut. I have a background in film studies, art history and drawing, which definitely influences the way I shoot. I live with my British husband in our little apartment overrun with books and boxes of tea.

Some things I like to do when I’m not shooting are writing comedic poetry, reading graphic novels and quoting Seinfeld. One of my goals in life is to shoot all 50 states on 35mm film. I’m almost halfway there.

Sound good? Let’s talk!
