Hi, I am Katie Skinner.
I am a self taught photographer based in Grand Rapids, MI with a passion for travel and meeting new faces from around the world. I love the quiet moment's of wedding days, clean and natural aesthetic, and letting my imagination wander when putting together a creative shoot. I like to use the resources I have around me to make something beautiful and don't like the over use of props. When documenting, I always take my time and put all of myself into what I'm doing, I feel that this is what really makes each photograph come together. When I'm not photographing I'm probably editing, reading, spending time with friends or family, redesigning my house - I love interior design, wishing I was somewhere warm or most likely - doing some sort of art, my favorites are pottery + paper making. I have been married to Ryan for 4 years and he is a constant reminder to me that I can be or do anything I set my mind too. He accepts me for my creative quirks and encourages me to dream bigger than yesterday. He is the love of my life.
“Kate captured our Nigerian rehearsal and wedding day to perfection. She captured the spirit and love we felt. She was a joy to work with and navigated many excited guests to get each and every breathtaking shot. We are eternally grateful and will cherish these photos for years to come. Thank you!!! Mr. & Mrs. Yahaya Gwamna.”
