About

I was born and raised on the island of Nantucket, and for as long as I can remember I’ve been immersed in and inspired by the natural beauty of my home. I always had a camera in my hand when I was younger, chasing sunsets at the beach, at the horse farm where we spent most of our days and documenting my adventures with my friends in scrapbooks too numerous to count. I currently live on Nantucket with my husband Evan Schwanfelder, our kids Millie and Archie and our adorable rescue pup Ziggy.

I spent many years abroad after college and then moved back to this lovely island. Living in such a scenic place and traveling the world to see other amazing sights has helped shape my perspective on photography. There’s incredible scenery everywhere, but it’s the special moments captured in those places that create lasting memories.

In 2009 I enrolled in the New England School of Photography for their two-year professional program and I studied photojournalism, wedding and portrait photography. After graduating I started my business on Nantucket. My photography style is natural and journalistic; my goal is to document the moments and experiences you’ll cherish forever. At your wedding I work within your day, meaning the flow of events is never interrupted and will never feel too directed.

I am committed to capturing the human experience from the smallest elopement to the biggest wedding celebration, from every day life to the family vacation celebrating 60 years of marriage for the grandparents. The best part of my job is that each wedding, portrait session or engagement is a new artistic endeavor with a story to be told. I’d love to talk more over the phone or meet you in person! I believe in getting to know my clients and value our client relationships whole heartedly. I’d love to tell you more about what we do and look forward to hearing from you!

Absolutely blew me away!!

Katie and her team were unbelievable from start to finish, starting from when we reached out to check her availability for our wedding! Her pictures are so unbelievable and captured every big and small moment from our wedding weekend. They truly take my breath away and every guest who’s seen her photos rave about how amazing of a photographer we had. We are so grateful to have worked with Katie and couldn’t recommend her enough for a Nantucket wedding. She knows the Island like the back of her hand and we always felt like we were in the best hands.

Unforgettable Memories Captured Perfectly by Katie Kaizer & Cary Tozer: A Wedding Photography Dream Team!

We had the pleasure of working with Katie Kaizer for our wedding on 9/16/23 at the Great Harbor Yacht Club in Nantucket, and we cannot express enough how exceptional our experience was with her. We knew we were in good hands from the moment we began planning, with Katie's clear communication and dedication to understanding our vision. She went above and beyond, even scouting locations to ensure that we could capture every detail we had envisioned for our special day.

We encountered a significant challenge when a hurricane hit the weekend of our wedding, causing numerous changes to our plans. Despite the unexpected hurdles, Katie remained incredibly supportive and flexible throughout the rehearsal dinner and wedding day. Her adaptability and calm demeanor made us feel reassured and cared for, turning what could have been a stressful situation into a memorable and enjoyable experience.

Katie's talent truly shone through in the photos she captured. Despite the challenging weather conditions, she managed to create magic with stunning shots of our rehearsal dinner, capturing the essence of the night and the joy shared by our closest family and friends. On the wedding day, she navigated the hurricane with a positive attitude, guiding us through different options and ensuring that we still had a variety of beautiful images. Her ability to turn adverse conditions into opportunities for breathtaking shots showcased her skill and dedication to her craft.

Katie and her teammate Cary were not only professional but also brought an infectious positivity to the entire day. In the midst of a hurricane, they radiated calm and encouragement, making us feel at ease and allowing us to focus on enjoying our wedding. From capturing the intimate moments at my childhood home to the beach, town, and our venue, every photo reflected the love and joy of our celebration.

One of the standout moments was the incredible sunset shots during the cocktail hour and after the storm had passed. Katie's keen eye for composition and lighting made these photos look straight out of a magazine, providing us with memories we will cherish forever. We did not have a videographer for our wedding, and honestly, we were a bit nervous about it leading up to our special day. But once we received the wedding album from Katie and Cary, any worries we had disappeared. The album captured our day so perfectly, and now, as we reflect on our special day, we can't help but smile at all those amazing photos. Especially when we look back on all of the epic dance party shots they captured - they added such a fun and lively vibe to our memories!

In conclusion, we wholeheartedly recommend Katie Kaizer and her team for any wedding on Nantucket. Her talent, professionalism, and unwavering support turned a potentially challenging situation into a day filled with love, laughter, and unforgettable moments. If you want a photographer who not only captures stunning images but also brings a positive and calming presence to your wedding day, look no further than Katie Kaizer and her team.

Katie is the best!

Katie is simply the BEST! My husband and I met Katie for our engagement photos on Nantucket in September of 2022 and she was with us every step of the way, leading up to our big day at Galley Beach on 9.9.2023! Not only is she an amazing photographer, but she is also an absolute joy to work with and truly went above and beyond to make our entire wedding planning experience incredible. I was so impressed by her genuine drive to get to know us as a couple – we often hopped on calls to touch base about life/wedding planning updates during the off season and she even went out her way to come meet us for coffee when we'd visit the island for other vendor meetings! Katie helped us with recommendations for other vendors on Nantucket, she sought out the most perfect lighting and backgrounds for our night before/wedding day of shots and was such a help when crafting our day of timeline. The relationship we developed over the past year really helped to make our photo sessions fun and natural, resulting in the most amazing photos from our wedding weekend. Her expertise as a wedding photographer on the island is truly unmatched. We can't wait to have her capture more special moments for us in the years to come!
