About Your Photographer

As a kid, I told myself I would never have a desk job. Before I finished elementary school I was an actor, painter, writer, and director. If it was creative, I wanted to try it. However, it wasn't until 2008 when I took my first film photography class that I would discover a certain hobby I could use to express my creative side, and help others along the way.

My job as a photographer is way more than just posing people and clicking a shutter. I am eager to capture your essence. The voice, the message, and the passion behind you or your business! Whether I am working directly with you, with your team, or just with your products, the intention is still the same. Anyone can take beautiful images, but not everyone can do so mindfully. 

My partner and I shot weddings together over the past five years, and we found in working together how exactly we can highlight each other’s strengths. Jem is a communications designer and all in all computer/photoshop/design wizard. He helps influence the simplicity and brand message in our personal style. Jem is the Jack-Of-All-Trades here! Whether he’s holding a camera, or helping answer your design questions, his skills and creative eye are an important piece of our operations! 

If you’re seeking inspired photography, or are engaged (congratulations!), I’d love to meet with you over sweets and drinks! Shoot me an email at to get the conversation started! I’d also love to see you on my Instagram @katiedessin where we can get to know each other a little better.


ABOUT My signature Look:

How do we achieve such a classic and bright look in our photography? Glad you asked! We use film, in addition to digital cameras, as our tool to tell your unique stories. The grain and color are charming benefits of film, but I also love the way it slows me down to capture raw, candid, and real life moments. Want to get nerdy with me? Click here to see why I love it so much!
