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:

Professional, thoughtful, fun, talented!!
Kate was so wonderful to work with for my boudoir photos! She was prompt in scheduling and emailing prior to the shoot, she was able to answer all of my questions / hesitations about doing boudoir as a wedding gift for my fiance. When I showed up to the airbnb I chose, she was already set up with ideas, lighting, and had even warmed up the house so I wouldn't be cold!! So thoughtful. She coached me through everything and made me feel comfortable throughout the hours she spent making sure we got a good variety of shots. The photos came out better than I would have ever expected and I can't wait to give this gift to my future husband! 10/10 would recommend!!Sent on 01/11/2020
MKM Photography's reply:Thanks so much, Sarah! You made my job so easy! :-D I know your fiancé is going to LOVE the images—I'm super happy with what we were able to come up with together!

We were so glad we went with Kate from MKM Photography. She was very responsive and willing to work with us for our small ceremony during COVID. Not only was she respectful of the privacy of family members (regarding posting publicly) but managed to capture beautiful photos - even on the rainiest of wedding days. The turnaround time for our photos was surprisingly short! Would highly recommend.Sent on 02/09/2021
MKM Photography's reply:Thanks so much for your kind words, Carmen! You guys were a delight, and I loved the intimacy of your wedding! Happy to capture it for you! :-)

Kate took our engagement photos a couple months before our wedding and they were great. Neither of us like being on the lens side of a camera and she made us both pretty comfortable and got some amazing shots. That time with her made the wedding day so easy because we were already familiar with her. She and Mike captured everything - all of the little personal details of our day, amazing photos of the ceremony, family photos, grand photos of the two of us and fun pics of the reception. They were always there to capture a moment, but it never felt like they were in the way. They kept us on a tight schedule between the ceremony and reception and we laughed and enjoyed the process with them. Both Kate and Mike are so fun to be around and put us immediately at ease even when getting us into photogenic positions. My husband even commented on how comfortable he was with the cameras and he HATES to have his picture taken. And to top it off, the photos are AMAZING!!! Everyone who has seen them have raved about them and commented about how well they capture us and the love that filled the day. I can't stop scrolling through the previews. I can't wait the see the rest of them!!! We'll be calling MKM for our next photography needs!Sent on 10/25/2020
