Dreaming Out Loud & World Domination || Destination Elopement Photographer

There’s no point in keeping your goals and dreams a secret. They’ll never come true if you don’t actively take steps to make them happen. Even if it’s just the small step of whispering to the universe what you want, and seeing if anyone’s out there listening. It can’t hurt.

This sweet little business of mine… oh how it’s growing. Everyday I am more and more astonished. This niche I wasn’t even entirely sure I could make a living from… I had no idea how it would explode this year. The places it would take me. But the funny thing about accomplishing something huge is that it just makes you even more ambitious. And so the last few months I have been sitting around thinking… what next? Where do I take this business of elopement photography next? And of course – the answer was ridiculously obvious. The road. Duh.

Aside from friends/family/my cats… the two most important things in my life are photography and travel. And I have dreamed and dreamed of ways to bring them together. Travel photographer, right? I love travel photography, but it is not for me. Elopements have my heart. And I want to photograph YOURS. Whether it’s here in New York City or across the sea. I want to go to whatever magical destination you are having your elopement or intimate wedding. That is the big plan for 2013 and 2014. That is the next step for this business. I have a lot of ideas on how to make it happen, but I want to spend a lot of time on the road in the next few years, and I want to photograph ALL THE ELOPEMENTS.

I’ll literally go anywhere, but I’m putting out ten places that I’d like to photograph an elopement in by the end of 2014: The Canary Islands; Rome, Italy; Santorini, Greece; St. Petersburg, Russia; Nice, France; Paris, France; Montreal, Canada; Costa Rica; Juneau, Alaska; and Berlin, Germany

So let’s do this. Help me take over the world.




LOVE this Katie!!!

Booyah! You looked and saw you love to travel so I’m hoping for many twinkling Paris lights or sandy beaches in your future. I’m figuring out just the opposite, ha!


Amazing! Thank you for being such an inspiration :)

HELL YES! Ah I can’t wait to see the places you go :-D

Ok. I am not even kidding. We HAVE to actually meet in person. This is ridiculous. Because for serious? I would LOVE to do the very same thing, but can’t quite figure out how to make it work. My passport is at the ready always. Can we scheme together?? :-)

I really really super duper admire you. Lots.

You’re the best. Such an inspiration – it is ridiculous. You rock!!!

WOW – thank you all so much for your sweet words! Totally overwhelmed by the positive reaction to this post.
