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 the quirks 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!
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:

Made it all so easy and pictures looked amazing!
Kate was absolutely amazing to work with! Organizing a wedding across the country is never easy but when you add in the additional anxiety of being a same-sex couple, the task becomes that much harder. Kate however made the whole experience a true delight. She was extremely responsive via email, made herself available to talk over Skype, and met with us in-person to go over final details less than a week before our wedding. Day of, her and her husband Mike worked their magic, cat herding our family together for various photos; then just simply being part of the party taking all the photos. Their photos really captured our special day so beautifully and we are so thrilled we had the chance to work with them. 100%, would recommend!Sent on 08/01/2019
MKM Photography's reply:Thank you so much, Jean-Paul! I would argue that you & Jesse are the ones who made it easy, with all your cuteness and sweetness! We're so thrilled to have been a part of your incredible wedding day!
Lindsey · Married on 05/26/2019
We are absolutely thrilled with the photos Kate and Mike captured of our wedding day. From the beginning, Kate was proactive in being sure that she knew exactly what we wanted from our photos. She was responsive to our questions and super easy to communicate with. She was also so flexible and understanding of our wedding date change (to which we owe her and Mike a huge thanks)!Sent on 06/23/2019
We received a beautiful array of photos, a perfect mix of portraiture and candid shots. Mike and Kate are a dream duo, capturing the same moment from different angles (the shots of our ceremony are especially wonderful for this reason). The photos are also tastefully edited, not at all over-processed but rather remaining authentic to our memory of the day.
On top of all that, we received photos back less than a month after our wedding (and in the middle of wedding season, to boot!). Mike and Kate's down-to-earth vibes made them a pleasure to be around and we feel so fortunate they were able to photograph our wedding. We highly recommend!
MKM Photography's reply:Thank you, thank you, thank you, Lindsey! It was such a pleasure to photograph you & John and your perfectly sweet, intimate celebration. We wish you both a lifetime of happiness and joy! XOXO

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!!Sent on 05/05/2019
