Hello! I’m Molly Kate.

After years of performing in the theatre, I understand that putting yourself in a position to be seen is courageous, trusting, and a little insane. 
Now it's my job to capture you: you amazing, delightful thing, because I know you feel that you deserve to be seen.

I treat every dog I meet on the street like a celebrity. I never say no to free meat at a wedding buffet.
And I will 100% lose my shit and dance my heart out if you play Earth Wind and Fire's "September" at your wedding.
I believe every moment, no matter how simple, is worth capturing.

Also, I love your face.

Real talk: I was a Lord of the Rings nerd in my youth, and Viggo Mortensen's book SignLanguage got me seriously into telling stories from behind the camera.  I started taking photographs with artistic intent with my mom's point-and-shoot camera when we traveled to New Zealand when I was 14.

I continued my interest by taking darkroom photography classes during high school.  My weird love of the scent of darkroom chemicals and the scientific magic of film developing got me hooked on the art form.  Over time my passion grew into photographing anything I found beautiful: be it the wrinkles on my grandfather's skin, a strong and elegant dancer, or a small dead bird on the side of the road.  In 2013, after studying the art form in darkrooms for seven years, I was awarded the Ralph Talbert Photography Scholarship for my accomplishments with photographing with a 4x5 camera and darkroom printing on fiber paper.  In college I mastered working in both digital and film mediums, as well as creating bodies of work that focused on consistent themes and storytelling.

In May of 2014, I earned my BA in Photography from Sacramento State University, and was chosen as the Honor Student for the Department of Design. I now run my business in the San Francisco Bay Area and specialize in capturing the vast range of human emotions at weddings, in family sessions, and portraits.

I love working from home because it means I don't have to wear pants.  If it's cold then I wear my Feejays (YUP, those are pajama pants with feet!).  While I edit I like to listen to podcasts like My Favorite Murder, My Brother My Brother And Me, or I re-watch The Office for the squillionth time.

I'm happily married to a handsome ginger who makes me laugh every freakin' day.
