Show off your brand's personality with bright and authentic images that help you and your message stand out online.

the lead behind the lens

Hey, i'm katzie

As a business owner myself, I understand how important beautiful images are to your brand. I thrive at brainstorming ideas with my clients and turning their vision into content you can share. I'm so excited to be a part of telling your story and showcasing the work YOU do to make an impact in this world. 

When I am not in behind the camera, you'll most likely find me snuggled under the blankets on the couch, sharing stories with friends around a summer bonfire, or binge watching Parks and Recreation while I edit your pictures.

As long as my friends have known me, there has been a camera in my hand everywhere we go. I'm confident they are relieved that Myspace did away with the online photos of our middle school awkward phase, but the fact that our lives have been documented through each stage of life has been the greatest treasure we share.

Being a photographer has been at the forefront of who I am for the past decade and I've specialized in portraits, events, and weddings along the way. Now, I am adding this dedicated digital home for the branding and lifestyle work that has breathed new purpose, creativity, and life into me.

This handsome introvert is Ben. He is the other half of the Katzie and Ben photography team in business and in life. 

We got married in 2017 and have been photographing weddings and portraits together ever since. While Katzie takes the lead on the brand work, you may see Ben pop in from time to time to assist and support. 

When he is not in front of the camera, he's most likely listening to an audio book, chasing our son around the house, inviting friends over for a board game night, or off camping in the great outdoors.


At the heart of it for most of us is to help, to serve, to inspire, to make an impact, to leave a positive legacy...

While most days you'll find me playful, punny, and drinking wine on the patio, I take my work as a photographer seriously because it is important to capturing the legacies of those I meet. Telling your story through images doesn't just make for a beautiful website or social media feed; it puts food on your table and improves the lives of others who need your message. The world needs you. You have a calling placed upon your heart and I'm excited to help you capture it, because that's mine. 

Everything changed for me two years ago. A dear friend found out the heartbreaking news that her husband had cancer on his spine and were days away from surgery to remove the tumor that would likely leave him paralyzed from the waist down. She asked me to take pictures of her husband and her family while he could still walk, still carry his daughter on his shoulders. As I raised my a camera to my eye, hiding back my own tears, I realized how important legacy is. We are not guaranteed another day. So we need to make the most of the one we have and celebrate the good while it is here. 

So I ask you, what is the legacy you want to be remembered by? What is the deeper reason you started your brand or business?

Katzie is my go to photographer for all of my portraits and content building sessions.

She makes you feel extremely comfortable and like you're a part of her family. She goes above and beyond with making sure that you get the results and photos you want and are looking for. I have never ever been disappointed with the result. Her passion for what she does truly reflects in her work. Book her and I promise you will NOT regret it!!

Katzie was such a wonderful presence.

Katzie came out to take headshots for the women attending a bloggers conference in Saint Paul. While I knew her work would be good, I was still so pleasantly surprised by the quality of the photographs.
Thank you, Katzie!

Quality photography and a positive experience!

Katzie's engaging and comfortable style made me feel less self-conscious as we shot, and the photographs reflected that.
