The experience

Meet the storyteller:

Katie Merrill-Skeele

Hello there! I'm Katie and I'm so glad you're here.
I have always been a dreamer.  Since childhood I have had a desire for adventure, and wanderlust deep in my soul.

I grew up in a tiny town in Central New York, exploring the woods, and losing myself in constant daydreams.  I have a profound love for nature and all things wild and free.  I married the most amazing man, and we have one of the most amazing kiddos.  We love everything about the life we have built and pride ourselves in our family and  our work ethics.

I love to capture my client's stories in the most stunning places and in the most unique ways.

Photos that mean something.

Photos have the power to preserve the most precious and connected moments of your life.  Photos of your wedding day, the people you love the most, the sweet season expecting your baby, the birth of your baby, you as a new family, yearly photos capturing the fleeting seasons of life.  The big and all the moments, the wild and the sweet.  These photos mean something.  They hold value today and for years to come.  For yourself, your family and any future family.  Life moves fast and these moments last forever when artfully and passionately preserved in photo form.
