About

$3,200 Most Popular Price

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!

    Amazing photos from an amazing team!!

    I found Kate through the OffBeat Bride website. We were having an unconventional vow renewal - Pi Day/Space/Marvel-themed - and we wanted a photographer who was as geeky as us, but, had the photography style I was looking for.

    Kate and Mike fit all of that and more! Kate was simply amazing to talk with and answered any and all questions. She and her husband, Mike went ABOVE and BEYOND and the results couldn't have been more perfect. I love, love, LOVE how detailed-oriented she is. All the vendors were so impressed with her through timeline.

    I am truly thankful for meeting Kate and Mike. They are an amazing team and I would highly recommend them. I need to have another event just so I can hire them again!

    MKM Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much, Amanda! Everything you planned was phenomenally executed, and you guys were a blast to work with. Sign us up for next time! :-D

    Just Hire Them

    Kate and Mike are not just great photographers but really great people. We are not big on taking pictures and so we wanted someone that made us feel comfortable enough to capture a sophisticated but still appropriately dorky version of us. From our first meeting and engagement session with Kate, she was a delightful human and she put us right at ease.

    With Kate and Mike, you get a perfect balance of feeling like they are totally prepared and in control of the situation and yet 100% on board to play around. I'd point at something and say "huh that looks cool" and Kate would respond with "absolutely let's try this angle and see what happens." Kate is also very thorough in running through all of the moments and pictures you want beforehand so you never walk away thinking, "dang I really wish we had a picture with X person."

    Some specific fun moments: Kate acting as my mobile purse all day and then producing even more things I didn't know I needed from her magical pockets like Mary Poppins. Kate leading the dancefloor in the Wobble with two cameras slung over her shoulders after I realized I forgot the steps. Mike teaching the guys how to fold pocket squares and then still folding most of them himself :)

    You guys are the best.

    MKM Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much, Sarah, this is so kind! YOU guys are the best, we had a blast working with you, and we wish you every possible happiness in your marriage and life together!
