I'm a lifestyle and fine art wedding photographer based in Rochester and available to travel throughout Western NY. Specializing in wedding and engagement photography, I provide an intimate experience from the initial meeting through to the delivery of a collection of images; your memories preserved as everlasting works of art.
I enter every wedding day full of excitement, bringing my enthusiasm and expertise to make sure you feel at ease. Part of a photographer's job is to make their subject feel comfortable in front of the camera. This has always been easy for me - I love the people I photograph and believe in renowned photojournalist Alfred Eisenstaedt's words, "It is more important to click with people than to click the shutter." I try to radiate positivity during every shoot, knowing my attitude can be reflected in my subjects. That being said, for a large part of weddings I go unnoticed, quietly searching for the fleeting moments that I know you'll want to look back on forever. This is your day, and I am there to document it. To make sure that you end up with photographs that serve to bring back these wonderful memories for years to come. After all, wedding photos are often those that are passed on through generations. Keeping this in mind, I strive to take photos that will withstand the test of time, hundreds of small works of art that can stand alone, or be pieced together into the story of a beautiful day filled with love.
For me, nothing beats the rush that I get while shooting a wedding, except maybe the response clients have for the photos afterward. Every wedding I photograph is an honor. I make sure to capture all of your friends and loved ones, the beautiful moments, the powerful emotions, and the obvious and not-so-obvious details to tell the timeless story of your wedding day.

easy to work with!
I have always admired Katie Finnerty's stunning photography, so it made sense to hire Katie to do a photoshoot before I got married. Katie is such a pleasure to work with! She made me feel so comfortable and I would recommend her to anyone. Her studio space was stunning and I was very happy with the photos! The turnaround time was reasonable! I would absolutely work with her again in the future.Sent on 07/01/2019

Beautiful photography and beautiful people!
I've been a Katie fan for a while. I knew without a doubt after the first time I saw some of her work, that I wanted her to capture my wedding. When the time came, we were lucky enough to have Katie and her husband Mike shoot our special day. They are two of the nicest, most talented people I have ever met. Not only did they take STUNNING photos of our day, Katie and Mike were rays of sunshine throughout the day. Katie offered words of encouragement and praise and made me feel like a model all day long. Mike was on top of everything! I would set my bouquet down and panic about where I had left it. Then I'd turn to look for it and Mike had it right there to hand to me. Katie put together an amazing timeline for the wedding day and worked tirelessly to perfect it. She thought of EVERYTHING and her and Mike's organization made capturing so many family photos a breeze. I can't say enough about what positive energy Katie and Mike brought, along with beautiful, natural photos that perfectly captured our day. Katie not only provides a service, she enhances the overall day. I'm so happy we were able to work with Katie and Mike!Sent on 06/11/2019

Perfectly captured the day
My husband and I are so thankful that Katie was able to be our wedding photographer. Not only did she capture every single moment so perfectly but she made the entire planning process and day of so easy and fun! She is one of the sweetest people and so beyond talented! We have shared the link around with our friends and family and every single person can’t get enough - we are still getting compliments! She created such gorgeous pieces of art that we can look back at and remember the day as if we were still there living it - I’m still trying to figure out how many walls in my house I can fit photos on because I want to display them all!Sent on 12/11/2018
