Northern California Wedding Photography bio picture
  • Hello lovelies!

    Thank you so much for stopping by! Here you will find my life adventures with my two boys, along with the wonderful people whose stories I get to be a part of. Including some amazing weddings and engagements!

    I am obsessed with everything Anthropologie, coffee shops and the color pink. Took me a long time to admit that last one ;) My love for photography flourishes on my passion for art and design. I am inspired by beautiful light and genuine love.

    Take your time wandering through everything and when you're done make sure to check out my website!: www.katelynowensphotography.com

This wedding was a first for me, as well as probably a first for all the guests there! Lauren & Tyler fell head over heels in love and got engaged this past winter. Shortly after, Ken popped the question on valentines day and he and Whitney were engaged as well! As these two beautiful sisters dreamed & started planning their wedding, they came up with the idea for them to get married on the same day… enter DOUBLE wedding here 😉 And I have to say, not just ANYone could pull this off!! These four worked together to create the wedding of their dreams and it went off without a hitch.

Their lovely summer wedding took place at Shaffer Ranch here in town. It was the perfect venue to hold their 200+ guests. And even though it was a hot one…it didn’t stop these four from having the BEST day of their lives!!

What an amazing, fun, crazy, busy, rewarding, breathtaking day this was. Lauren, Tyler, Whitney and Ken, thank you for giving me the honor of being your wedding photographer. I loved every busy minute with you FOUR and couldn’t imagine doing a double wedding with anyone else 😉 Much love to you all as you embark on the adventure that marriage is! Enjoy my favorites from your day!!

xoxo,

Katelyn

One evening when I was just lounging around the house, I received a phone call from a VERY excited bride. This bride was kassie! She told me how much she loved my work and quickly asked if I was available on her date. She was READY to book right then and there! What an honor! Her wedding date happened to be on my birthday- my 30th birthday. I didn’t even hesitate to tell her I’d LOVE to shoot her wedding. Brides like kassie who KNOW what they want and LOVE my work are exactly the kinds of brides I love to work with and push my creativity further.

And this beautiful day did not disappoint! It was obvious how hard kassie worked to make it all come together. Every detail and moment was perfection. Kassie & Scott are such a lovely, genuine, kind couple and they truly shined throughout their whole day. Especially Kassie who was radiant- just wait till you see her joyful smile below!!

T.J Farms was such a gorgeous backdrop for Kassie & Scott’s day. They say July is the prettiest time of year there…and I have to agree! Everything was in full bloom -so lush and green. Loved shooting there!

Kassie & Scott, I couldn’t have asked for a better couple or a better wedding to spend my birthday with. You guys made it so FUN and such a breeze!! Enjoy my favorites from your beautiful day!!

xoxo,

Katelyn

It’s hard for me to find the words to fully describe this beautiful day and the love these two share. Witnessing and capturing Kayla & Brandon’s pure, joyful, genuine love was such an honor to be a part of. This day was a long time coming and it couldn’t have been more perfect!

Kayla & Brandon first met in elementary school when they were just babies! Brandon had his eye on the ever so lovely kayla way back then, but it wasn’t until quite a few years later that God wove their paths together and created one beautiful love story. I know I’m not the only one who can see how overwhelmingly evident it is that these two are meant to be.

The colors, the florals, the intricately decorated barn, kayla riding up on horse back with her dad before he walked her down the aisle- their absolutely beautiful day was a perfect reflection and celebration of Kayla & Brandon uniting in marriage.

Kayla & Brandon, thank you for giving me the honor of being your wedding photographer! I loved every minute with you two. Enjoy my favorites from your day!!

xoxo,

Nestled in the hills of the quaint little town of Sunol, Morgan & Ed shared vows as they committed their lives to one another. Every minute of this day was beautiful and the love these two share was overwhelmingly evident to all.

Elliston Vineyards has made it to my list of favorite venues! A historic mansion built in the 1800’s surrounded by rolling vineyards and perfectly manicured grounds. It was the perfect place for this day. It was the perfect place to act as a backdrop for this stunning bride! Morgan could not have been more gorgeous and truly beamed with joy the whole day!

These two are SO loved. Every single person who was there was overflowing with excitement for Morgan & Ed. This showed not only during the ceremony, but right into the reception! What a FUN reception it was. These two along with their guests sure know how to party!

Morgan & Ed, I am so thankful I got to be part of your wedding day! What an unforgettable day it was. Enjoy my favorites!!

xoxo,

I loved these two from the moment I met them…wait…I know how that sounds, but it’s true! I first met Kayla & Brian at the chico bridal show last summer and quickly connected with them. From that point on I knew I wanted to be part of their beautiful day! The feeling was mutual…these two ended up choosing their wedding date based on my availability. What an honor!! And one I didn’t take lightly.

This lovely day took place at Kayla’s grandparents property in red bluff nestled right on the sacramento river. Kayla dreamed of getting married there since she was a little girl…and what an amazing thing to see come to life now! It was obvious how hard everyone worked to make it happen. Including kayla & her mom who put so much effort into every little detail. It was all SO gorgeous!

Capturing Kayla & Brian’s wedding was a dream! Such a beautiful day filled with LOVE from the beginning to end. And a little rain in June didn’t stop this from being one beautiful day! Rain was definitely a surprise to all, but these two made the most of it and focused on celebrating their marriage! These two are truly a perfect match. Brian’s calm & patient demeanor blends with Kayla’s fun loving sass so well. And these two could not be more genuine. I’ve appreciated how real they are from the very beginning!

Kayla & Brian have become friends and the is the thing I love MOST about this job of mine. Building lasting relationships with my couples through their journey into marriage. As cheesy as it sounds, it’s true! Kayla & Brian, thank YOU for giving me the honor of being with you on one of the most important days of your life. I truly loved every rainy minute with you two…and ryder 😉

Enjoy my many favorites from your day!!

xoxo,

Katelyn
