About MKM Photography

Hey! I'm Kate! With my husband, Mike, I comprise MKM Photography--a duo of enthusiastic and nerdy wedding photographers based in Durham, North Carolina. We have a deep love for the weird and authentic in everyone: from tattoos and fandoms to every honest expression of emotion you can muster. We want to share in your excitement, quiet or loud as it may be, about all the love, joy, intimacy, colors, details, and everyday bits of magic that make up your life and your wedding. With a focus on moments and emotions over poses and “perfect” backdrops or expressions, our primary goal is always to create beautiful, authentic images that capture who you are: as individuals, as a couple, as a family. Our favorite people love hard and laugh deeply, own all of thequirks and weirdness that make them real, value photography and its ability to tell a story that lasts.

All of our weddings and portrait session bookings include digital copies of all final, edited images delivered to you via online gallery download with a printing and usage rights release. Kate is always available to answer questions, help plan, discuss details, or just generally nerd out by phone or email. Get in touch today to set up a consultation!

Services Offered
Our basic wedding package includes eight (8) hours of wedding day coverage by both Mike & Kate, as well as an engagement session. Everything else is added on an a la carte basis--options include:

  • Extra hours of wedding day coverage
  • Love the Dress sessions (a catch-all for photos in your wedding dress, including everything from traditional bridal portraits to a full Trash the Dress session!)
  • Boudoir sessions
  • Newlywed sessions
  • Heirloom wedding books
  • Gallery-wrapped canvases
  • And more! Just ask!

Areas We Love
In addition to living and working in the Triangle, we would be thrilled to photograph your wedding in...:

  • Any other North Carolina destination, from the mountains of Asheville to the Outer Banks and more!
  • Tampa / St. Pete, FL
  • Columbia, SC
  • Eastern PA (Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton, Philly, and NEPA)
  • Pittsburgh, PA

We look forward to hearing from you!

    Absolutely awesome

    Kate is fantastic. Obviously her portfolio speaks for itself but we were looking for a photographer with a great personality to get the best pics out of us, and we found that in Kate! She and Michael are a great team and everyone in our wedding enjoyed working with them. She’s also super responsive, stays on top of schedule, and is respectful of all guests and all backgrounds. We highly recommend!!

    Beautiful Fall Wedding

    Let me just start by saying Kate is an absolute joy to work with! She's funny, down to earth, and super sweet! She did our engagement photos which turned out beautifully and our wedding photos were even more gorgeous! She was very responsive and answered any questions I had and made recommendations in areas where I wasn't sure what exactly I wanted yet. She was able to manage our crazy families for family photos and got great shots of our kiddos too! Her husband Mike got some really incredible shots as well and was great at getting the guys together for some shots with the groom. I would absolutely recommend this dynamic duo to anyone in search of photographers for wedding/engagement/family/anything!!!
