About

On WeddingWire since 2009

We are Katye & Joe. Married Photojournalists.

We have history, we have cameras, we have a height difference. We think two heads are better than one, four eyes are better than two.

You are probably here because you are excited about your photography. You are looking for pictures that will recall moments and memories. Maybe even something a little offbeat. You aren't scared by a little dust on your dress hem, and you’re looking for photographers who value originality. And that's us.

The best way we can describe our work is artistic journalism. Authentic meets creative. We are a married photo duo who both began our careers as news photographers. Our approach is to get out of the way, and capture what unfolds. Observing people, telling their stories, and anticipating moments is in our muscle memory. Combined, we have more than three decades of experience as photojournalists, shooting and picture editing for publications and non-profits small and large.

So now what? You're planning a wedding, and we realize this is but one stop on that completely crazy journey. This is the fun part. We hope you’ll take a peek around some our favorites, there's much to see!

Gorgeous Photos

I looked at a bunch of photographers, but when I found Joe and Katye, I just loved the style of their work. It felt very natural and real, capturing unexpected moments so beautifully. We did an engagement/family session with them in August 2020 (with great results) and got our wedding sneak peeks last week and are thrilled. We can’t wait to see the rest! They were easy to work with, flexible when we had to reschedule due to COVID, and got incredible shots while we barely noticed they were there. Do not hesitate to hire these two!

Amazing Experience

This review is long overdue! My wife and I got married outside of Newburyport in February, 2020 right before COVID-19 came to Boston. We had an amazing experience working with Katye and Joe. Our biggest priority is that we wanted to feel at ease with our photographers, and we were looking for photographers who had captured diverse weddings and diverse couples. Based on the photos we saw of past weddings The Happy Couple had photographed we knew we had found the right people!

We spoke with Katye and Joe quite a few times prior to our wedding. They really wanted to get to know us, who we were as a couple and what we were hoping for. They asked us thoughtful questions and put us at ease.

The day of our wedding it was wonderful having two photographers. They were able to capture special moments between us and our family and friends from all different angles around the venue. The most important thing we wanted was candid photos capturing special moments, and they delivered on this 10X over! We look back on our photos with such happiness. Would definitely recommend Katye and Joe to any couple! Thank you, Katye and Joe! xx

Could not have asked for anything better!

We absolutely loved working with The Happy Couple! We were married in November 2020 and so many of our wedding plans changed due to COVID-19. Joe and Katye were wonderful every step of the way. They were very supportive and understanding of each new iteration of the wedding we shared with them. They even helped us look for new photo locations when our original location fell through. On the day of our wedding, they were professional and followed all safety precautions. They were prepared and great working with all the craziness the day threw at us, including a rainy outdoor photo shoot.

We loved all the pictures of our big day that they shared with us. Both our preview photos and the entire album of photos were sent to us earlier than we expected. Having two photographers was great because we feel like they caught each special moment of day. We couldn't have asked for better photographers!
