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

Kate and Mike are the best!
Kate and Mike were a joy on our wedding day. They were discrete during our ceremony, were super efficient during our family portraits, and took very fun shots at our reception. Kate was incredibly organized and responsive in the months leading up to our wedding and was understanding and flexible to any schedule adjustments we needed to make. And, most importantly, the photos turned out amazing. I would highly recommend her and her husband for any of your wedding photo or family portraiture needs. We are so happy that we chose to work with them.Sent on 12/29/2019
