“Dear Kate, We are not certain how to begin to thank you for your incredible photography. We may have verbalized this before, but it is certainly worth repeating – you are wickedly talented. You were able to capture emotions, energy, and most importantly, love in every picture. It’s the work of an artist. In addition to your obvious talent, the passion and dedication you bring to your work is apparent. There is a quiet calmness in your approach that put us and our friends and family at ease. You are truly a remarkable professional and individual. Thank you for capturing and highlighting each moment of our wedding. You definitely made our special day a memorable one.”
ANTHONY + CHAD
BOSTON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER – KATE MCELWEE PHOTOGRAPHY
I’m a Boston wedding photographer with a photojournalistic approach, and a style that is fresh, modern, and emotional. My specialties include decisive moments, big hugs, dramatic backgrounds, perfect details, sideways glances, goofy expressions, and raw emotion.
Your wedding day is a celebration of YOU, and of your beautiful, quirky, funny relationship. I create bold and vibrant images that capture the essence of who you are, both as individuals and as a couple, through the eyes of the loved ones surrounding you. I capture how you feel on your wedding day, as well as how those around you experience it. You’ll experience joy and laughter as you relive the funny, quirky moments of your day, and feel deeply loved when you see the sweet, quieter ones.
While my photography style is rooted in wedding photojournalism, capturing moments as they naturally unfold, I’ll also create a series of kick-ass portraits of the two of you. I want you to swoon when you see your wedding photos … swoon, laugh, gasp, and maybe even cry!
