Hey There! Thank you so much for stopping by my page and for considering me in your search. My name is Kat, and I'm the co-owner and photographer behind East To West Images. I consider myself to be a dreamer, adventurer, and a lover of meeting cool humans. I'm also a newlywed!
With over 5+ years experience in event management, and having helped plan a few weddings myself, I feel confident that I can not only authentically capture your love story, but also navigate a variety of other aspects of your day such as the timeline, vendor coordination, and a stress free experience on my end with flexible payment.
Having been a bride back in August, I know just how exciting and also overwhelming this time can be. Maybe you know exactly what you’re looking for? Maybe you don’t know where in the world to start? Either way, you’re not alone, and I'm here to help.
Basically, I want to take as much of the pressure off of you, so that you can focus on what really matters; being present, enjoying those around you, and celebrating your love story.
I like to shoot in the styles of:

An Unexpected Day
Kat did more for us than I anticipated. We met with Kat a week before the wedding over coffee to discuss our plans and what we had in mind for the day. Coming into it we had almost nothing planned. She was very thorough and asked questions like "are there any people you feel would be best to avoid putting together?" and "what kind of pairing are you hoping to see?" and "are there any sides and angles you do and don't like to see in a photo?" etc.Sent on 07/12/2020
After our meeting, I felt a lot more relieved because things seemed to fall into place for us. But I had no idea just how incredible the day would turn out because of our amazing photographer!
My husband moved from Germany to be with me, so his family needed to fly over for the wedding. His and my family both have a language barrier and never met before - so you can imagine that a wedding such as ours would have been stressful and awkward on many levels. Fortunately for us, Kat has an incredibly positive and attractive personality! She ended up being an ice breaker for us that left both of our families smiling and laughing together throughout the entire photo shoot and forgot that there was a language barrier in the first place. She was definitely a miracle worker for us!
As a side note, I personally felt awkward and insecure about being the center of attention. I was not looking forward to the wedding. I really owe it to Kat for getting me through the day and helping me enjoy it as any bride should!
As for her responsiveness and quality of work, it blew my mind. We got her sneak peak photos the evening after the wedding, and I must say I was more than thrilled. I never liked photos of me as much as I liked Kat's photos. Instead of never wanting to see them again as with any typical photo, I now want to frame and be able to see them all the time! She really captured us and our happiness that day which I will always remember when looking at them. I am truly happy and privileged to have asked Kat to be the photographer at our wedding!
East to West Images's reply:Wow! You have me tearing up over here Anastasia. Thank you SO much for your kind words and for choosing me to be with you on your day. It was such an honor to be able to celebrate and capture your love. I always want my couples to love the photos, but hearing how much you enjoyed the experience means more than you know! Thank you for sharing your moment with me and for taking the time to share your thoughts! :)

Kat is amazing
We hired Kat for 4-5 hours and she ended up staying for about 8 hours to make sure she got all the photos we want! She never looked at the clock, she was one of the last people to leave. Even before the wedding she was quick to respond, so sweet and so so helpful. I will recommend her to everyone looking for a photographer! Thank you Kat for making our wedding an amazing day!! She went above and beyond in every way :)Sent on 09/14/2020
