I can truly say that I follow my heart and that is what led me here.
I live for a good country song, Sunday night football, and chatting over coffee. My two loves are my adorable daughter, Paityn, and my amazing husband, Kyle. I wouldn’t be the person I am without them. My background in cinematography developed into a passion for photography. This gives me a unique advantage to tell your love story through imagery.
I’ve spent the past 3 years getting to know the most wonderful clients and capturing their most meaningful moments in time. I’m so blessed to have been surrounded by an abundance of LOVE; sweet kisses, pretty flowers, yummy cakes, awesome dance parties, and the cutest munchkins on the planet. All of your love, light, and energy has molded me into the person that I am today. I truly have the most amazing job on the planet, and it’s because of you!
If you’re seeking photos that evoke emotion, that are thoughtfully crafted and delivered, and go beyond the surface, you’re in good hands!
Since I was a little girl, I’ve identified myself as a DREAMER, and my heart has always had a love affair with light and storytelling. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been amazed by people and their unique stories. This passion for people and stories was given life when my parents bought me my first film camera when I was 8 and a mini-camcorder when I was 14.
It wasn’t until my mom passed away 6 years ago that a fire was ignited leading me to pursue my love of storytelling as a career. I discovered a deep desire to help others create a legacy that will stand the test of time. This profound experience in my own life produced more clarity than ever before of how precious time is and not to take any moment, big or small, for granted. It reminded me of the importance and the impact that authentic imagery holds in all of our hearts. This is why your story is a big deal to me, and it deserves to be told! This is your legacy and a part of who you are. I believe that you deserve to have the most compelling, transcendent, and honest photographs. I hold this philosophy dear to me every time I pick up a camera to document your most sacred moments in time.
If you desire a friend, over a vendor - your search ends here. Welcome to the family! I want to be vulnerable with you so that you feel comfortable to be vulnerable with me. Your wedding day is the biggest day of your life, but it's only the beginning to all of the beautiful moments that you have coming in the future that also deserve to be artfully captured. So now the choice is yours. If you also believe that your story deserves honest documentation that brings deep meaning to your story, I’d be honoured to walk this journey with you.
LOVE + LIGHT,
"When you photograph a face...you photograph the soul behind it."

"Right from the first day that Katie and I connected with each other over email, she has been a dream to work with. So detail oriented, professional yet personable, and so so creative and patient. Our friends and family who met Katie and her team absolutely adored them as well – they felt like family by the end of the day!We received our wedding day photos (in record time, I might add) and we were blown away with the quality and quantity of the work she did! Everything is BEAUTIFUL.
We never expected our “Covid wedding day” to be as amazing and special as it turned out to be and one of the main reasons for that was because of Katie and her team! We truly hit the jackpot with this team – I would recommend Katie to anyone!!"
"We are so glad we met Katie and had the pleasure of hiring her as our wedding photographer. Katie has a way of making posing for hundreds of pictures quite entertaining and enjoyable. On our wedding day, Katie blended into the background. We barely knew she was there. This is a real credit to Katie because she captured dozens if not hundreds of intimate close up moments that we would have never thought possible without being intrusive. Some wedding photos make you feel like you are right back
there on your day. That is definitely the case with Katie’s photography.
Katie is amazing!
We have had such a great experience with Katie since they day we met her. She has now shot our engagement photos, wedding and recently, she did a newborn baby shoot for us. She is absolutely delightful to work with. Always thoughtful and attentive to our needs. And she makes the shoots a lot of fun. We feel it’s definitely a business of the heart with Katie. We couldn’t imagine hiring anyone else to shoot our life! We look forward to working with Katie for all of our exciting major life events. Thank you Katie!!"
"I don’t even know where to begin when speaking about our experience with Katie. Meeting with Katie was spectacular- it was like hanging out with an old friend. A few things that come to mind are that she always goes above and beyond, is incredibly professional but also friendly, flexible, and an overall dream to work with from start to finish!
On our wedding day Katie and her team got RAVE reviews from our family. Their professionalism, attention to detail, and organized manner made everything go so smoothly, but they were also super fun and you could tell they absolutely love what they do. Katie and the girls made everyone feel confident and comfortable in photos including myself and my husband. Katie ensured they got as many photos as humanly possible on our wedding day and made sure nothing was missed. She took the best candids and the most beautiful posed portraits. Our gallery is full of photos of our families and ourselves that we will cherish forever. I go back and look through our photos all the day just because they are so stunning I cannot wait to work with Katie again in the future and I highly recommend any bride hiring Katie as their wedding photographer!!"
"My husband and I found the photographer search to be really overwhelming, SO many options! We ultimately chose Katie because of her down to each nature.
Katie was (and still is!) very prompt with her responses.Our photos from both or engagement and wedding were delivered on time as promised. I loved the natural colour of the photos, we really didn't want any extra filters added on. She was willing to adjust her timelines around our always changing wedding day plans, and was more then game to shoot some special wedding touches we had (my dog, fireworks etc).
Plus Katie sent us a really cute Christmas package! loved it! loved the experience, highly recommend."
"My husband and I felt an instant connection with Katie when we had our initial consult. Next came our engagement photos we spent all day with Katie at Scarborough Bluffs and Richmond Hill's David Dunlap Observatory. Spending so much time with her made us feel extremely comfortable for our wedding day.
My bridal party loved her right away so that made all our photos easy to do. The rest of the day just flew by as we went from site to site (condo getting ready phase, the first look, reception venue).
Not only does she do wedding photography, she is great with kids! She is a mom of her own and knows exactly what to do with fast kiddies to get their emotions.
She was amazing from beginning to end. Professional, efficient, friendly and, most importantly, took the most fabulous photographs of our wedding.
We couldn’t be happier with them. She is a true professional. We would recommend any engaged couple to choose Katie as their wedding photographer."
"What am amazing person!! Book with her won’t regret it!
Highly recommend!!! This lady is amazing she is funny, punctual, great time all around. I can’t even begin to explain how much I would recommend her. She listens to what you want and makes you feel so comfortable. Can’t wait to have her at our second wedding next year. (Having two due to Covid) she was so accommodating and flexible with everything."
"Katie is one of the best photographers I’ve ever worked with! Not only are her photos absolutely stunning and the quality superb, but she and her team have been amazing to work with, and she is one of the nicest, bubbliest individuals I’ve ever known. In the trying year that 2020 has been, Katie and her team have been incredible. Our wedding day ended up being not what we had originally planned, but the small family ceremony and celebration was absolutely perfect. Katie and her team were super accommodating, quickly adaptable to the situation, and captured everything perfectly! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer!"
Katie didn't just shoot my wedding and give me pictures. What Katie gave us was so much more!
She captured the emotion of our wedding. With every photo you instantly travel back in time as you can feel the moment again. It was really her candid moments that delighted us. My favorite pictures are from when I didn't know I was being photographed because she caught us in the most beautiful moments. One photo I was trying to distract my son while the second shooter took my husband's family photos, we were just playing around and that picture is my favorite photo of all time. I cherish that picture as he grows that I have that moment captured in time and honestly I didn't even know she was shooting us.
I 100% recommend Katie Crane Photography. She is a wonderful person, easy to deal with and truly amazing at what she does."
