When I join you on this part of your journey I want to honor your love and legacy through photography. Not just the things that happened, but the feelings, the experiences, the memories. Those images I capture will become heirlooms, covering your home and passed down to future generations.
An old friend who’s got years of experience, that is.
Before I even pull out my camera, we’ll connect. We’ll loosen you up, share some laughs and stories, and get comfortable with each other. Then when the camera comes out,
I’ve been in the business of serving people for 20 years of my life (that’s more than half!). I’ll bring all that experience and more to making sure you know exactly what to expect and can focus on spending this amazing time with your partner and loved ones.
I’m serious when I say I want you to feel at home. And in our time together, your home is this amazing place.

We live for those wild feelings. We believe in treasured tangibles. Being able to photograph your connection to your loved ones is a dream come true. But it doesn't stop there for me. Our photo journey isn't complete until I know you have tangibles treasures hanging on your walls, decorating your coffee tables in beautiful high quality albums, printed on holidays cards that your friends and family hang on their fridge.
Where do I even start- from the beginning Katie was a wealth of knowledge, professional, responsive, and so polite! We fell in love with her photography, ( I mean, it looks like its from a magazine!) and she made us feel so SO comfortable in-front of the camera. Our engagement session came out even better than we had hoped, and now our biggest debate it to decide which prints to put on the wall. This was also one of our favorite experiences during our stay because it was so unique, and we saw so many parts of the park. She had so much knowledge about Zion, the landscape, and the surrounding area too, that she helped us with so many little questions during our stay. If you are considering an elopement, engagement, or photography session while in the Springdale/Zion area Katie will definitely exceed your expectations and you will fall in love with the photographs she captures of you, and your loved ones.
I initially reached out to her because of the quality of her work, and because she has such an adventurous spirit. But what’s more, is that she offered more than just photography— what we paid for, was for an experience I will never forget.
Not only was she our photographer for a surprise engagement, but she created a custom experience for it. She directed me to a secret and beautiful location to have a set up. She woke up at 6am, inflated the balloons and set up the surprise site; coordinated with the town bike shop and USPS to ensure that our plan was in place; and convincingly acted like a bike tour guide in front of my fiancé to keep the surprise.
It was so special, and so much fun, and I appreciate her beyond measure. She was so easy to connect with, and has a genuine disposition for what she does.
Katie and the Wild Within Us Photography did an amazing job capturing my secret proposal. She was incredibly helpful from the start, helping me plan how to propose and even accommodating a way to include my family in a meaningful way. She was able to truly capture an amazing and wonderful moment that will last us a lifetime, and I am so grateful for both her kindness and her skill in taking these photos. I would highly recommend her to any friends or family without hesitation, and definitely for those of you looking to find a photographer in the Utah area and in particular in Zion, Katie is the one to go with!
