Colorado Springs Photographer
MY NAME IS KATE CARLTON AND I’M A PHOTOGRAPHER IN COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO. I specialize in work as a wedding photographer and motherhood portrait photographer. People would describe my work as romantic, artistic and with soul.
JOURNEY WITH ME
I am passionate about getting to know my clients and their story in life. That is my inspiration; connection. By getting to know my clients on a deeper level I am allowed to create artistic portraits that reflect who you are authentically.
When you meet me, you might get that cozy feeling you get when you're traveling and you meet a nice stranger, and they invite you back to their house, in a town you have never been to, and they make you their favorite local dish, and you drink wine, and coffee, while telling stories about your lives, sitting on beautiful old rugs, that have been worn and loved through the ages with stories of their own, and then you become the best kind of kindred friends, the kind who check in on each other for the rest of time...
I love on my clients as I do my friends and will be honored to document your story. Every part of it from the big events to the quiet moments in-between that are equally and sometimes even more important… so please, journey with me.
"I would give Kate 100 stars if I could. She puts her whole heart into every shoot and it shows. She photographed our engagement, elopement, maternity, birth, and newborn. I can't go one day without looking at at least one photo she has taken. Our birth photos make me cry every single time and I'll cherish her work forever. She's just incredible!" - Julia
COLORADO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
The first time I shot a wedding, back in 2003, I fell in love with everything. The moments of joy, the nerves, the proud family and friends and most of all the couple. The more I learned the more I realized I fell in love with my couples love stories. The simple moments that stay with you, that make you two. The moment when you realized you couldn't live one more moment without the promise of forever. Since 2011 I have photographed weddings all over the US especially through the Rocky Mountains and the Colorado and love every second. I don't charge for travel through Colorado, but I do request a hotel room if your location is over 3 hours away. Contact me today! I can't wait to photograph your wedding.
