Katie is fabulous and I feel so fortunate to have worked with her over the years. Katie was nothing but accommodating when it came to anything including engagement pictures and working around the weather to last minute details on the big day! I have to give credit to Katie for... Read More being the only one to keep my sane on our wedding day! We had spent hours scoping out the perfect spots to take pictures for the big day just to find the day of that our (maybe a little too rustic) barn had completely collapsed! Katie kept her, and my cool and found something equally as beautiful right down the road to take pictures. Fast forward 1.5 years and she was the first person I contacted when we wanted family pictures when our beloved dog was diagnosed with cancer. She made that day just as memorable as our wedding day and shared both laughter and tears with us. I truly cannot explain how grateful I am that we were able to find Katie for our wedding. She treats each couple as more than clients and is passionate about her pictures and career!

Katie not only does a phenomenal job but is so fantastic to work with! After seeing her work at our friend's wedding we knew she was the perfect photographer for us. During our engagement photo shoot she helped us scope out awesome locations and made us feel so comfortable.... Read More Leading up to our wedding day she promptly answered all my questions, calmed all my fears, and came a couple days before to finalize the details in person. On our wedding day she kept her calm through all the crazy and still managed to capture the most amazing pictures. Katie is so personable and really gets to know her clients which makes her so fantastic to work with. Looking through our photos she was able to capture everything so perfectly, from our emotions to all the little details. In addition to working with her on our wedding day I also worked with Katie on a boudoir photo shoot as a wedding present for my husband. I definitely was nervous before we started but Katie made everything so relaxed and even met with me afterwards to let me assist in designing the book. In the future, she definitely is the first person we would contact for all of our photos.

Katie has exceeded our expectations! She is a pro when it comes to capturing candid moments and going with the flow. But not only was she professional and accommodating to our requests, she went above and beyond her duties when she stayed over her contractual time to make sure... Read More she captured our surprise gift from my mom-in-law. The UW marching band was suppose to come at 8:30pm but didn't show up until after 9:15, and Katie didn't hesitate to wait around until they arrived. In all honesty, I couldn't imagine a more perfect photographer.

I wouldn't have missed the band!!! Your wedding was beautiful, thank you so much for letting me be a part of it!

Where do I even begin? Everything Katie and her team do is simply the best, truly couldn't have asked for a better photographer for my wedding. My husband and I really were looking for someone to help us with picture ideas and making sure we captured all the moments on our... Read More special day. Katie went above and beyond our expectations, one of our favorite moments from our day was the time we had prior to our reception just Katie and us taking pictures around our reception venue. It was truly that special moment every husband and wife look forward to on their special day, a moment to take everything in and just enjoy each other while doing so. Some of our favorite pictures were taken during this time with Katie. Another one of our favorite things about having Katie as our photographer was the photo ornament she shipped us (completely unexpected), to help us celebrate our first Christmas together. Literally was our favorite Christmas gift and was so thoughtful!!! Katie, you made our day so special and we cannot thank you enough! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

Katie is seriously amazing! We chose Katie because we had seen her work with one of our friends’ weddings a couple years ago and loved their photos, and in addition, her prices were very reasonable. We are so glad we made the choice to have her as our wedding photographer!!!... Read More Right from the start with our Engagement shoot, Katie made me and my husband (and our energetic dog) feel comfortable in front of the camera, and the pictures turned out awesome!!

She knew exactly the shots I wanted and made sure she got all of them :) We are SO happy with how our pictures turned out and could not have asked for a better person to capture our special day!! Bob also did a great job assisting Katie and getting some awesome candids throughout the day. Leading up to the wedding, Katie was super responsive and helpful, answering all my random questions.

Katie was great to work with. She was easy to communicate with by e-mail (and responsive), which was very useful throughout our wedding planning.

Katie is seriously the best; I don’t know where to start!

She was very... Read More responsive in communication from the start and all the way leading up to our wedding day.

Meet The Owner

Katie Trumm

Katie and her husband Josh started this business in 2010 as a side profession while she was working full-time. As she built up her clientele, she became busy enough that working, family and business were becoming too much. After some financial consideration and market research by she and her husband, they decided to make this a part time passion into Katie's full time career. Katie graduated from the University of Platteville with a Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design and a minor in photography. We do a minimum of 20-25 weddings per year, as many as 35.
