From the simple, every-day moments, to the epic, life-changing ones. Each is a memory in the making, and they all tell a part of the story of YOU!
Hey there!! I'm Katie Dalrymple, a wedding and lifestyle photojournalist from Sea Isle City, NJ. I have crazy curly hair, a big personality, and am the fur mama of two beautiful rescue pups, Princess Sparkles and Lady Godiva. I come from a large Italian family where there's always a reminiscent story excitedly being told over good food (or just at the counter in the family store). Listening to my family history, and hearing stories about my parents when they were young, or loved ones I never met, may be where my passion for documentation began.
I'm in love with traveling, meeting new people, learning about other cultures, experiencing life through food & stories (and some wine), rescuing animals, and collecting little moments every day of my life. I want to see the whole world, and with every place I've visited so far, I always find that the most exciting and memorable ones are the tiny towns outside the cities. Or the little streets off the main road. The places filled with locals, relaxing after a long day, talking about life, where you can't help but actually feel like you've become a part of their culture just by being there.
This love of small moments with real people is part of the reason I became a photographer. There are so many significant occasions in peoples' lives that need to be documented, but sometimes it's the little, in-between times, that are the most memorable. My goal and passion in my work is to capture authentic moments between people; documenting them creating special memories together. It's these little details that fill in the gaps in our live's stories.

Wedding Pics - Amazing!
Katie is AMAZING! She was wonderful from the start - upfront about pricing, willing to work with us long-distance, and communicated with us frequently to better understand what we were looking for. We had tons of compliments all evening from guests about how she captured so much without getting in the way. Our photos came out perfectly - she managed to capture everything so wonderfully! Everything we asked for, she made work — for example, we wanted more candid shots than staged, so she did just that, all while ensuring we did get the staged shots that we would appreciate later. We are so in love with our photos and her experience & knowledge of the wedding experience & our venue really showed. We cannot recommend her enough!!! You will not be disappointed with her enthusiasm, care, joy, professionalism, and quality.Sent on 07/11/2019

Couldn't ask for a better person to have by your side (except your partner LOL)!
Katie does the work of 5 people! She is amazingly talented, patient, flexible, and calm. Being a bride is pretty stressful and not everyone wants to pose for photos but Katie made every experience fun and efficient. She was a breath of fresh air to have by my side on my big day - can't wait to see our entire album!!Sent on 07/11/2019

Katie Dalrymple did a fabulous job capturing moments throughout our engagement and finally, on our wedding day. She was incredibly professional and easy to work with. She answers your questions via email, phone, and text and is always very prompt in doing so.Sent on 01/11/2015
After our engagement pictures (she traveled all the way to Philadelphia!), I knew we had made the right choice. She had an enthusiasm when working that put me and my not-so-eager-to-take-pictures husband at ease! She had researched the place and came in with so many ideas. She also really listened to my ideas.
In the months leading up to the wedding, she spent SO long on the phone with me in order to get our timeline and all my needs/wants checked off. She had a to the minute timeline. She assured me that she would keep us on time from us getting ready, to the first look, to the ceremony, to the first dance, all the way to cake cutting! And you NEED someone to do this for you. I wasn't stressed about time for a minute on my wedding day. Most of all, because I knew that Katie had it under control. She takes care of her brides and makes sure everything is absolutely perfect.
And her photographs! All of them were so beautiful. She truly has an amazing eye. Her judgement and style are impeccable! She has this amazing photo-journalistic style that when you look at the photographs from the wedding day, she captures such special moments and emotions from throughout the entire day. Since we were doing a first look, she also hired on a second photographer who we also were very happy with.
If you are getting married anywhere in the NJ/PA area, I would recommend Katie in a heartbeat. The wedding day goes by so quickly. I feel so lucky that I have such beautiful pictures that captures our big day.
