My story

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 8 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 why we should not 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, transparent, 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.

My Favourites

Who am I?
1. I am a caring wife and mother to my adorable daughter, Paityn.
2. Paityn is my savour, strength, and hope.
3. My family is my entire world. They give me my purpose and everything I do is for them.
4. My dad is my hero, my mom is my inspiration, and my stepmom is my biggest supporter.
5. I am a bit of an empath and peace keeper. I’ll do anything to try and avoid confrontation.
6. I like to make people laugh and can take a wee bit to get to the punch line.
7. People say my cackle makes me unique!
8. I live for a good country song. I like to belt out and leave everything out on the dance floor.
9. I adore a good pair of cowboy boots.
10. Peyton Manning and Tom Brady are among my greatest sports heroes of all time.
11. Chocolate is my sweet addiction and usually cures my sweet tooth.
12. I am a team player and love collaborative thinking.
13. Being active in yoga is where I feel the most grounded.
14. I am a hopeless romantic and a big dreamer; Hallmark Christmas movies can make me feel giddy inside.
15. “This is Us” is one of my favourite shows; and I usually have a tissue box beside me.

I don’t believe in sessions that are a one-size-fits-all! I believe all of my clients need an incredible EXPERIENCE that can be cherished for years to come! I strive to capture organic moments that will be timeless, passionate, raw and genuine. My goal for each session is to create a unique and breathtaking photography and cinematography experience for you and your family.

My philosophy

"When we met Katie, we immediately clicked with her energy.   Katie was an essential part of our day, and I could not imagine it without her. She was always up for phone calls to brainstorm ideas, and helped me plan out a special first look with my now husband. She scouted the venue in advance, and made a story board to help us think of different looks to capture at our venue. At our elopement, Katie effortless captured all moments, our laughs, our nervous smiles, and the moment we were husband and wife. She made sure everyone was comfortable the entire day. She has a great sense of humour and was able to keep us laughing and captured real, authentic moments. I highly recommend Katie Crane Photography!"

"I am beyond grateful that I chose Katie as my wedding photographer. Not only is she one of the most humble, funny, and easy going people I know, she is also amazingly talented. Katie and her team were so professional, knowledgeable and fun to work with. Getting married during covid was very stressful, but Katie made everything run so smoothly throughout the whole process and was so helpful the day of my actual wedding. We developed such a good relationship that has now become a friendship. I would highly recommend Katie to any person looking for high quality, natural, and whimsical photos to capture their special day."

"My husband and I are so grateful and lucky to have worked with Katie and her team to capture our engagement photos and our wedding day! Katie is so attentive and you can tell right from the first time you meet her that photography and capturing life's special moments is her passion and she pours her whole heart into it! She makes you feel so at ease and so comfortable while shooting as well. This was our first time having professional photos taken and we felt like we were spending the day with a friend. She goes above and beyond to make sure you have a great experience from start to finish and the photos are absolutely gorgeous and capture everyone's spirit so well. Thank you so much Katie, for everything! I would highly recommend working with Katie to capture any of life's most special moments!"

Katie will start out as your photographer but quickly become a friend!  She managed to capture the best moments! Our family adored Katie from the moment she arrived for the getting ready photos right through to the end of the night when dancing started. She made everyone feel so comfortable in-front of the camera. She also somehow managed to go unnoticed throughout the reception to get some of my favourite candid photos of the night showcasing the love and joy that was pouring through the room. We are transported right back to our special day every time we look at our photos and have Katie & her team to thank for that. She is a wonderful, kind and genuine person who wants nothing more then to make sure your day is captured perfectly, her talent is unmatched! I would highly recommend Katie to anyone!

"Working with Katie and her team was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! It was a whirlwind to plan, and cancel, and re-plan a wedding through the pandemic, but Katie was flexible and so supportive throughout, working with us to come up with creative solutions and timelines to ensure our day went smoothly and we made many beautiful memories. We just got our album back and we are in love with the beautiful work that she and her team did. She is so kind and dedicated to her clients and her work. The pictures and video are beautiful and we feel so grateful to have connected with Katie!"

"If there was a 6th star it still wouldn't be enough. Katie and her team blew me away. Incredibly accommodating and meticulously detail orientated. I have high expectations and they exceeded every one of them! I could write a novel on how great the experience was from start to finish. I would hire again and again. I will recommend every chance I can get. Delaney and I are forever grateful!"

"Working with Katie was amazing and fun. Katie helped us capture our maternity shoot. She was very responsive and patience with me as I wasn't sure what I wanted to do. On the day of, Katie made us feel super comfortable. She captured both "in the moment" and "posed" photos. We couldn't stop laughing the entire session.

Thank you Katie for the beautiful photos. We highly recommend working with Katie for any of your photography needs."

"We had booked Katie for our engagement photos and wedding in 2020. With the pandemic it was very stressful and difficult to work dates out.  Her communication was on point from day 1. She was constantly keeping in contact at the right times to make sure we were happy and still moving forward with our wedding date. On the date of our wedding Katie and Rachael were on point and made sure we were happy. They found all the little details needed to capture on our special day.  We couldn't be any happier choosing Katie to capture out special day. Thank you very much Katie!"

"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!!"

"Meeting with Katie was spectacular- it was like hanging out with an old friend. She always goes above and beyond, is incredibly professional but also friendly, flexible, and an overall dream to work with from start to finish! Katie and her team got RAVE reviews from our family. You could tell they absolutely love what they do. Katie made everyone feel confident and comfortable in photos. 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 cannot wait to work with Katie again in the future and I highly recommend any bride hiring Katie as their wedding photographer!!"

"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 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. "
