The Experience

indianapolis event photographer

as a former wedding photographer, i love using my skills of capturing events in a smaller capacity.  as a mom of two, i've been through bridal and baby showers, first birthday parties and so many other memorable events.  

i know how much these events mean to you and how much work is put into it.  having these moments captured on camera to treasure is priceless.  



In planning my grandma’s 90th birthday, we had forgotten to hire a photographer! Two days before I reached out to Kaitlin who graciously offered to fit us into her schedule the Saturday of a holiday weekend. Meeting her, I understood why she was willing to do that — she is a gem of a human being completely focused on making sure your favorite memories are perfectly captured.

Whether it's at the local Cake Bake Shop in Carmel, or at your home, I'm honored to capture all of the pretty little details you put so much thought into, the candid moments and everything in between so you can sit back and soak in this day with those you love.


-Make Merry Indy

She captured shots that I would not have thought of….what a surprise! She’s generous with her time and we greatly benefitted from her attention to detail.

With years of photographing luxury weddings under my belt and eye to create beautiful imagery, I pride myself in capturing the emotion of the day and making every event feel high end. 

-Jennifer & Matthew

She truly has a gift for capturing the special moments, both big and small, and has been one of the nicest and easiest photographers we’ve worked with. We live in Oklahoma but know that each time we have something special happening in Indiana, we will be hiring Kaitlin to document those moments.

frequently asked questions

when should we book our event?

I recommend booking at least 3 months ahead of time, as there are limited weekend dates available. It's always best to secure a date ahead of time and as we get closer we will finalize a start time as you know the timeline better. 

do you have vendors you can recommend?

Yes!  Having photographed weddings for 5+ years in Indianapolis and photographing smaller events since, I have several recommendations depending on what you're looking for- planners, balloon artists, florists, linens, hair and makeup artists, you name it.  I got you covered. 

What will you photograph during your time?

Everything!  From all of the pretty little details you took so much time to curate, candids to capture the emotion and joy of the day, group photos with you family and friends and even a miniature portrait session for the celebrant.  

how much time do you recommend?

Most clients book between 2-3 hours beginning 15-30 minutes before guests arrive so that I can photograph the details and tablescape. This allows enough time for me to be present for all of the special moments of the day so that you can soak it in.

If you're looking for a full service luxury and stress free event photographer who provides bright, timeless and authentic images, I'm happy you're here! I can't wait to hear from you!
