Celebrating 10 years of sought-after experience and masterful imagery, enriched and inspired by YOU.

A decade later, trends and technology have come and gone, but I still have a camera 

in my hands and I love it more than ever. I'm often asked what I love most about being a photographer and honestly, it's meeting legends like you. Really though! You're out there finding the loves of your life and discovering what it means to be the best versions of yourselves and I get to document the story of it all. Your lives have so enriched mine and ten years later it's an adventure I never grow tired of.

ABOUT

I think marrying Christopher was one of the best experiences of my life. He's the Superman to my Lois Lane and best co-adventurer I could have ever prayed for.

I believe that life is staggering and that sadly, we're just used to it. The smell of rain, the turning color of leaves, even our own love stories... we somehow stop feeling the magnitude of it all. I wish there was a way to capture these feelings, freeze them in time so I could replay it again and again when I forget. 

I suppose that's the thrill of photography--capturing the transient. Whether your love is the strong silent kind that shows itself in knowing eyes and tender embraces, or if your love is the loud laughter and infectious kind that can barely contain the joy and excitement you feel... I want to be there. With my camera. Taking snapshots so that time will forever be frozen still.

I believe the best moments are sparked outside expectation, when we let ourselves get swept up in the story that's happening right now, all around us. We can't always plan for these moments--they happen fast... sometimes as fast as the click of a shutter. And they almost always happen when we're not looking around at what everyone else is doing.

This life you're living is the stuff of legends. Be here. Live your adventure. I'll be there too... with my camera ready.

"Kate Noelle is the most amazing photographer I have ever seen! I have followed her blog for years and the moment I get engaged, I knew she was going to be my photographer. She has the ability to capture moments that you don't even know are going on. Also, she very quickly gets a feel for what you want captured... and on top of that, she gets amazing photos in a short amount of time. One thing I didn't realize until post-wedding is how important

the personalities of your vendors are. You are going to be working with these people more than you think; and on a day that holds so much emotion, you need someone that you feel comfortable around. I believe Kate is the type of person you can't dislike. She is honest, open, and comforting. I got a little nervous before my wedding (putting the dress on was an emotional moment for me), but Kate was comforting, yet normalizing, and allowed me to feel all the nerves and tears so I could go on with the rest of the day. I was blown away by her calm demeanor--it was literally the best thing in the world. Kate is also very direct with photos, which works wonders when it comes to family photos. She called people by name and got them in their spots. She is outstanding to say the least!”

 of life. Kate even jumped on a boat and sailed into the middle of a lake in strong wind to get an amazing shot she could imagine in our engagement pictures. If you want more than just the traditional wedding photos...Kate is for you."

"From the moment I met Kate, I knew I wanted her to be our wedding photographer. She is professional, kind, fun, positive, and a blessing to be around. Kate traveled to photograph our wedding in the Redwoods and she was amazing to work with. She offered great professional advice on the timing and  locations we shot at and was really flexible working with our schedule. She was up at 5am that morning, bright and early, to get our 'getting ready' and 'first look' photos, which were around 7:30am due to our morning wedding ceremony!! The entire day, she captured incredible images that take my breath away even still. Her eye for details and capturing moments is AMAZING. You know you are in the best hands with Kate. From the beginning emails, to receiving our images, it was a joy to work with her during the whole process!"

"Kate is truly a gem. She photographed my engagement shoot and my wedding and the photos were everything I've ever dreamed of. She made us feel comfortable and really captured our day so beautifully.

Kate made me feel like the bride I've always wanted to be. She took her time during our engagement shoot to make us feel comfortable in front of the camera. She made sure to get every detail and tons of special moments during our wedding.

 The photos make me weepy and it's clear she cared so deeply about capturing my memories. Plus, she's just generally awesome to be around. 

I plan on using her in the future for family photos! Cannot recommend her enough.

Dear Kate, I could not have asked for a better photographer. You are a true talent and you will go far. You have this ability to walk into a place that you have never been to before and immediately see the best shots and directly communicate with your clients on how to pose and make a perfect picture. It is pretty impressive! We loved your creative eye, your quick ability to see a good shot, and your simple instructions you gave to John and I to get into poses. I have no idea how you do it. You are remarkable. We loved how you were everywhere getting all different angles during the ceremony. Honestly, I think all of my hopes were realized."

husband prior to the wedding, and she made sure we were comfortable in front of the camera the day of. She was very thorough in asking about what time of shots we wanted, and in helping us come up with a family shot list, she made sure we didn't miss a thing the day of. She was local to my destination wedding, so when I started having issues with my venue, 

she even offered to drive out to their offices for me! Definitely goes above and beyond in making sure that everything goes smoothly. We were very comfortable in front of her camera -- she has a soothing voice and is very encouraging and does a great job describing how we should stand or act or where to look. Absolutely would recommend her!"

"Kate is amazing to work with! From pre-event planning to the day of, she was available, approachable, friendly, professional, and she goes out of her way to help. I needed something that was not in her usual packages of service, and we were able to work out something that was a great value and gave me flexibility to add time if needed.
