Northern California Wedding Photography bio picture
  • Hi Darling!!

    I'm so glad you're here! I'm Katelyn. Wedding Photographer & Owner of this little business of mine. I've been shooting weddings for over 8years now and have shot over 120weddings! And the truth? I still am absolutely obsessed with my job and LOVE what I do.

    Before you scroll below and check out some pretty amazing couples, I think it's important to know a few things about me so then we can officially be B.F.F's, sound good? I love to laugh...usually at myself (yes, I'm that girl ;), I have an unhealthy iced-coffee addiction & I am a sucker for Goldie Hawn movies (#overboard).

    Now that we've got that out of the way...take your time wandering through everything lovelies and when you're done make sure to check out my website, K?! : www.katelynowensphotography.com.

    Oh! And if you really want to make this thing official, feel free to follow along on instagram ;) There you'll see my daily stories of this REAL life yo and we can get to know each other a bit more.

    XOXO,

    Katelyn

These two are so genuine. And their wedding day was no different! Full of genuine moments & emotion. Full of genuine family & friends there to celebrate Nick & Jenna’s love. And full of genuine love between these two college sweethearts.

Starting as just friends their freshman year of college, who knew all these years later they would be becoming husband & wife at the absolutely gorgeous Palm Event Center in pleasanton! One of my hands down favorite venues to shoot at fo sho! What a beautiful and elegant day this was.

I truly can’t say enough about these two and this day. It was such an honor being part of this celebration of love and not to mention SO MUCH FUN. Seriously. The ceremony filled with heartfelt laughs & crying, to the hilarious toasts and insanely awesome dancing!! A party I didn’t want to leave! But to be honest, I feel that way every time I get to work with an amazing couple like these two and especially when their wedding is at this gorgeous venue!!

Enough chatting, let’s get to all my favorites from this lovely day!! Jenna & Nick, thank YOU for giving me the honor of being your wedding photographer. I am so thankful to have met you two! Enjoy my favorites!!

XOXO,

Katelyn

These two are something else. The love they share is undeniable and so genuine. Vanessa & Shawn were truly meant to be and I mean that with my whole heart! Their beautiful wedding celebration took place where these two met here in chico. They met in college and years later they became husband and wife at the gorgeous T.J Farms.

You would never know by looking at these photos that it was a hot 104 degrees! I do my best to hide the sweat with good light 😉 Plus these two are such a gorgeous pair, they made it EASY to get dreamy photos all day long. Vanessa & Shawn’s day had the perfect fall touches. The florals done by the amazing Cambray Rose displayed this so beautifully! Seriously obsessed.

These two were surrounded by close family and friends and it was obvious how loved they are! Shawn & Vanessa danced the night away with their loved ones and clearly had the time of their LIVES! Which they should, right? 😉 It was such a joy to witness and capture.

Vanessa & Shawn, I truly loved getting to know you both over this past year! Vanessa, I’m so thankful for your yelp review obsession, if not our paths may have never crossed…SO thankful they did!! It was such an honor being part of your beautiful day. Thank you for entrusting me with those moments. Enjoy my many favorites from your day!!

XOXO,

Katelyn

I have hesitated to write this post so many times because I feel my words just won’t do it justice. So I’m going to just keep it simple and focus on what you SHOULD know. This couple is out of this world amazing and their day was beyond MAGICAL in every way. Their head over heels love…the way Dave looks at Camille…and the JOY they both share for each other is 100% the Notebook kinda love. The real deal folks. It was such an honor to be part of this day. Day’s like these remind me of WHY I am completely obsessed with shooting weddings and more importantly getting to know incredible couples like Camille & Dave and share in such a crazy amazing day.

There could be no better way to end my 2017 wedding. The groom played in his own bands (two of them!) and ROCKED the reception. Seeing Camille dance away while her new hubby serenaded her with Dashboard Confessional’s “You have stolen my heart” is a moment I will NEVER forget! And I’m sure she feels the same 😉 Another favorite, seeing Camille & her dad ROCK their father daughter dance in such a unique way that FILLED the whole reception with a crazy amazing energy…you’ll have to just see the photos below to know what I’m talking about 😉

Camille & Dave, I knew from the moment we explored san fran together for your engagement shoot, you two were something extra special and I have absolutely loved getting to know you two and witness the incredible love you share. Thank YOU for giving me the great honor of being a part of your beautiful wedding day…it is definitely one I will never forget.

I could go on and on about the breathtaking bride, how they got married in the church where her parents became husband and wife years before in Camille’s hometown or the absolutely STUNNING reception site, The Prescott owned by Camille’s parents…. but these two right here take the cake and I just can’t wait for you to relive their magical day below!!! Enjoy my many favorites you two. Love you xo

…and friends…here is a extra treat for you… click the link below to play the song I mentioned above while you relive this magical day…it will give you a little glimpse of this incredible day…. “You have stolen my heart” .

xoxo,

My goodness this was a beautiful wedding! That’s all I kept thinking about as I shot this amazing day and now as I upload the images for this blog post. The details alone are enough to make any girl swoon!! My girl Cassondra worked so hard to make this beautiful day happen and it showed in every way. Scribner Bend Vineyards was the absolute PERFECT backdrop for this day. Everything about this venue was picture perfect. From the ceremony area nestled in the vineyards to the stunning reception site. I loved loved it!

This sweet couple are finally married and it was such a joy to be part of! Cassondra & Brian are such a beautiful pair and balance each other out so well. And these two sure now how to par-tay! What a fun group so full of life and ready to dance!! Being next to the river it cooled down quite a bit toward the evening as the dancing carried on and that was a wonderful treat!

Cassondra & Brian, I have loved getting to know you two over this past year. Thank you thank you for choosing me to be part of this incredible day. Enjoy my favorites from your beautiful wedding (yes, I know I’ve overused that word in this blog post…but it’s SO true!) !!

xoxo,

I can hardly believe this beautiful day came and went. Hailey & Brandon booked me over a year and a half before their big day. At the time it seemed SO far away…but then all the sudden we blinked and it was here. The day was finally here where these two high school sweethearts would become husband and wife! And what a truly amazing day it was in every way.

These two grew up in chester so it was only fitting that they would also join their lives together as husband and wife there as well. Bailey Creek was such a beautiful setting for this day. It was my first time shooting there and I loved it. Hailey & Brandon are such a sweet, genuine, fun couple and it was so evident how loved they are! Bailey Creek was filled with practically the whole town of chester.

Hailey (& Brandon) but especially hailey worked insanely hard on every little detail you’ll see below. She is so talented and all her hard work and eye for detail surely paid off! And it was truly a photographer’s dream (thanks for that girl! 😉 )

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

xoxo,

katelyn
