The Wedding Experience

Wahoo!! EEE!!! We’re a match! I’ll send you a short questionnaire and contract for your wedding experience. Your date will officially be secured once the deposit is paid. We'll then schedule and plan your engagement session. Together we’ll find the perfect location and talk through outfits to make your vision a reality!  At your engagement session, you'll be able to get in front of my camera for the first time. I'll guide you through the posing process to create fun, natural photos that are true to you! Once your edited images are complete, you’ll receive your online gallery and we will have a meeting where you can purchase prints, albums, and wall art.

A few months from the big day, I'll send you another questionnaire and then we'll set up a detail day and timeline call. The timeline call ensures the day will run smoothly and will assist me in capturing all the special moments

wedding day! OMG! EEE!!! It’s finally here! I want to give you the gift of “being present” on your wedding day. Because of your custom timeline, you get to relax and remember every aspect of your wedding while I and my associate step into your story. It’s about the moments you share with those you love most. It’s your day, where you have all your favorite people in one room. So, all you have to worry about is experiencing that day as you want, and I will just be on the sidelines documenting each moment as it unfolds. My favorite part is seeing you just be yourselves and enjoying your time with your family.

I know the great anticipation that comes with waiting for your gallery! So within 72 hours, you'll have a preview of your images and the entire gallery will be delivered to you within 12 - 16 weeks. When photos are printed they have a soul and you’ll be so much more attached to those memories than you ever thought you would. At the end of it all, I want you to have gorgeous, timeless artwork that you are proud to display in your home, whether it’s an heirloom album, a gallery wall, and/or statement piece. You deserve to have these beautiful memories displayed: every time you flip the pages I want you to be reminded of how you felt in those moments, the love that others have for you, and you have for them. After all, in the end it’s the real moments with your favorite people that are what matters most.

One of my favorite parts about being a wedding and lifestyle photographer is the unique opportunity to step into seasons of life. Getting to know my couples (their personalities, their passions, their journey) allows for a personable experience that often develops into sweet friendships even beyond the wedding day! My hopes and dreams are that your photos will not only be beautiful, but that they will be a reflection of your authentic relationship, they will remind you of how you felt during each part of your day: bursting with emotion, excitement, joy, and happiness. When you look through your wedding album in 50 years, I want you to feel the love, and remember the sounds of laughter.

The Process

Does this resonates with you?

Heck yes!





"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."

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!

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.

"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!!"

Andrea + Scott

"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. "
