My name is Katie Iredale and I am a traveling wedding and elopement photographer based in San Diego, California. I welcome all couples. Love is love is love. I’m here for the adventurous, the not so adventurous, the proud house-plant parents, the succulent killers, those who can quote every episode of The Office, and those who can’t. If you’re in love and you wanna marry the heck out of your person, I’m here for it. You invest your heart, energy, time, hard earned money, and so much more into planning a wedding… And when the day finally comes, it’s so beautiful, emotional, and exciting… But it also flies right by. You deserve to relive your wedding day again and again, forever. And that’s where I come in: I have a photojournalistic approach to wedding photography combined with the perfect hint of portraiture. A storybook with many chapters – a page turner – a tear jerker; I will create a visual fairytale of the day you get married.

“She has been an absolute blessing to work with from the start! She is one of the most beautiful souls I have ever encountered. Taking photos is uncomfortable in front of someone who you don’t really know but with Katie it’s not like that. She knows EXACTLY how to make you feel like you’re taking pictures with your long lost best friend!! Her consistency and compassion with her clients is unmatched. Her photography style is breathtaking and something you won’t find with another photographer. I highly recommend her not just because of her photography but because of how prepared and hard working she is. Also, she is one of the COOLEST people to hang out with because she just goes with the flow and did I mention how funny she is?! She’s the best! Katie thank you for giving me the wedding photos of my dream!! WE LOVE YOU and couldn’t recommend you enough!!!! If you’re thinking about booking with her, DO IT IMMEDIATELY! You won’t regret it.”

"There aren't enough words to describe how much we love our wedding and engagement photos. Got married 1 month ago now and I've looked at our photos every. single. day. I'm obsessed with how well she captured our emotion in such a real yet artistic way. I followed Katie on Instagram because of her talent and once we got engaged, we both knew we wanted her to take our photos. Plus, I felt like we were already friends just from interactions through her photos, captions, messages. Every person that we've shared our photos with have raved about how amazing they are and how beautiful. Katie, thank you for sharing your gift with us and capturing our special day that we've waited so long for!"

"Katie is simply incredible! Not only does she deliver absolutely stunning photos, but she is also an extraordinary person. I could not think of anyone better to photograph my wedding with my crazy family. She coordinated our photos so well that it flowed seamlessly with our program. It was cloudy and rained a decent amount on our wedding day, but I can honestly say that I did not worry for a second that my photos would be anything short of breathtaking. She is trustworthy, hilarious, talented, patient and just a wonderful person inside and out. That's the kind of photographer Katie is and I would book her again in a heartbeat."

"I fell in love with her photography instantly. The colors, the lighting, the intimacy, the emotion... Her style is eye candy. Reaching out to Katie was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Amidst all of the chaos she stayed cool as a cucumber and captured my wedding in the most beautiful way. Not only do we admire her work, but getting to know Katie will forever be a special part of our wedding day. This girl is a super star both as a person and as an artist. I needed to trust my photographer in capturing my big day, and she exceeded all expectations. Would I recommend Katie? A million times “yes”. Love this girl, love what she does, and love how she captures memories that will last for years to come."

"I was lucky enough to find Katie on Instagram and booked her for my engagement session. My fiancé and I liked Katie instantly upon meeting her and she made us feel at ease, comfortable, and ourselves during the photos. Then, we saw the pictures and the way she captured us so naturally and genuinely and we knew we needed her for our wedding. Hiring Katie as our wedding photographer was one of the things we list as "that went really well" for our wedding day :) She felt like part of our family. She helped problem solve where the heck we were going to do pictures were there was a torrential down pour and her low key attitude was much appreciated on a day that can feel a bit stressful for the couple. Katie captured our day perfectly. She got the best parts of our favorite day easily and I would hire her a hundred times over. I look forward to finding any reason to get pictures done with Katie!"
