Hello! We are Kate and Sam and we are a husband and wife wedding photography team based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We are experienced in photographing weddings and engagements throughout the United States and beyond, and we are available for weddings worldwide!

We photograph our clients using both medium format film, and digital cameras. We believe that nothing quite compares to the look and feel of a photograph created with film; rich in color and and grain. All of our wedding collections include beautiful pieces of art. It is important to us that our clients have something gorgeous to hold onto after their wedding has come and gone, so every collection that we offer includes customized art pieces!

Our clients benefit from working with both of us during their engagement session, and of course on their wedding day. Since we are two individual artists, playing together as a team, our clients get the "full package," including two perspectives, and additional extra special photographs of guests, details, and families that a single artist simply could not acheive during a wedding day.

Our past clients will tell you, we clearly love what we do. We love the incredible people that we meet through our work, and we love love love sending pretty packages to our clients filled with art and goodies. We are truly honored to spend our lives capturing couple's love stories for our clients.

If you are interested in hiring us as your wedding, engagement, or trash the dress photographers, please inquire at your earliest convenience. We are currently booking 2014 and 2015 dates.

We were lucky enough to have Kate and Sam there for each milestone of our wedding process. Our engagements, my boudoir session and the wedding day.We are over the moon impressed with what we have seen so far. Your eye for capturing priceless moments is truly a gift. Your patience with our large wedding party is so much appreciated, as well as directing the family for pictures in the church. Everything was so smoothly done. The quality of photography that you both produce is out of this world. Such talent, passion and drive into perfecting people’s most special life moments. It’s truly amazing.

Kate and Sam were phenemenal. My first phone conversation with Kate lasted almost an hour, it felt like we were old friends catching up after a long time and that is a quality I don't think too many people possess! Upon meeting them both, I was instantly more excited to begin working with them. It never felt like a "photo shoot," it felt like friends hanging out who just so happened to be taking pictures. It was very casual, upbeat and fun both for engagement photos and throughout our wedding day.

Kate did a great job of listening to what was important to me in a photographer and what things I wanted, and tailored a package specific to our wants and needs. She was very quick to get back to us when we had questions, help our family members who had special asks, and was just all around accommodating to myself, my husband, and everyone involved.

Kate and Sam work so well as a team, and really have a passion for the love stories they capture in each couple. They really do bring out the best in the people they photograph. I cannot say enough good things!

Kate and Sam truly have an innate, passionate and magical way of capturing every important moment of your day. From tears, to smiles, to the smallest gesture and to the most grand happenings, Kate and Sam's photographs are more than just pictures. They help to tell the story of your day over and over again. In a wedding photographer, we wanted someone that would connect with us. Kate and Sam went out of their way to get to know my husband and I as individuals, and as a couple together. Using that knowledge, they personalized their service to ensure that our pictures were not only representations of our wedding day, but also of our relationship and who we are as individuals. Easy to work with is a true understatement. Kate and Sam make you feel important, make you feel beautiful and truly work their TAILS off to ensure that you are satisfied with your photographs. I have personally used Kate and Sam for other photography experiences, and our wedding will not be the last time my husband and I enlist their service. If you are looking for a wedding photographer that is personal, caring, dedicated, detail orientated, and passionate about providing you with photographs that capture your day in the most amazing way, please choose Kate Botwinski Photography. They are simply the best.

From my very first contact with Kate for our September 14, 2014 wedding, it was confirmed that if we booked them, we were going to be in the best of hands. Throughout our first phone conversation it was hard to tell who was more excited- Kate or myself! Having done what I imagine to be thousands of these phone calls before, she had me feeling like I was the only bride-to-be on the planet. Let's face it, every bride wants to feel that through the planning and on her big day.

On top of our wedding day, we opted to have Kate & Sam do our engagement photos and day after shoot. Having had facial reconstruction surgery in the past and being extremely self conscious for photos, I was super nervous. We met with Kate & Sam before the session. They were so kind, supportive, and hilarious! We ended up having the best time during our shoot! I have never felt so comfortable in front of a camera and did not want our shoot to end. I was moved to tears when we saw our photos. Sometimes the quality of something created by somebody just surpasses any words we have, and that is how we felt about our photos.

Kate & Sam handled our destination wedding with flexibility and ease. There wasn't any added stress one might think there would be when hiring photographers from out of state. If anything, they made our wedding smooth and relaxing, which was important for our intimate, romantic wedding.

Through the process of working with Kate & Sam, I went from being completely averse to having my photo taken to having a genuinely great time with my fiancé and then husband in front of Kate & Sam's cameras. I have never felt so beautiful & loved in my life. Kate & Sam's work speaks for itself. They create the most romantic, beautiful, love filled photos out there. The part you don't get to see is that they are the best people to work with and are 2 of the greatest, most genuine people you will ever meet in your life.

Kate & Sam are best photographers in the Twin Cities, hands down. I have been part of weddings and experienced other photographers, but their talent and quality make Kate & Sam truly unmatchable. They are such a unique team and are the sweetest vendor you will encounter. They put great effort into making beautiful photographs that will exceed your expectations. The way they collaborate while shooting photographs is great as well, capturing images from every angle and prospective possible. They make you feel comfortable in front of the camera from the first moment. They make a connection with each client and experience the emotions of your day with you. Our wedding was at the Woods Chapel and Wayzata Country Club and they knew exactly where to take us and exactly what photographs to take without my groom or I having to put thought into it. You will not find photographers as professional, talented, genuine & friendly as Kate & Sam. I highly recommend them and encourage couple's to spend a little extra on your photographer as these images will be with you forever.

Kate + Sam, they are simply amazing!! My husband had hired them for our proposal as a surprise and when he brought home the canvas print I fell in love with the pictures and their work! There was no doubt in my mind that I wanted Kate + Sam to be our engagement and wedding photographers. My only problem was, they were a little higher then I what I had budgeted for but being that pictures are so extremely important to me and you only get one chance at your wedding day I knew I wanted the best, so we expanded our budget and hired them! We couldn't be happier that we did!!

Kate + Sam are so easy and wonderful to work with. Kate helped so much with the planning of the day and making sure I was at ease. After talking to Kate I knew with them we were in the best hands possible. The day went very smooth, with there help! They made sure they got every picture we wanted plus more! After the wedding when we got our proofs back, it was so exciting because they turned out even better then I had expected. All the prints that we have ordered, we couldn't be happier with the quality of work they do, it's always fun getting their packages in the mail!! Everyone at the wedding everyone said how much fun they were to work with. We couldn't be happier we chose Kate + Sam!

Kate and Sam are the most amazing photographers around! My sister had used them for her wedding three years ago and I knew that they were the best! They photographed my wedding which was almost 2 weeks ago! We have already seen a few different photos from our day and they are all stunning! Any photo that we wanted throughout the day, they were right there to take it! I would recommend Kate & Sam to anyone, they are the most amazing photographers and they will make you so comfortable the day of your wedding!

We hired Kate and Sam to photograph our wedding. Readers of this review would be wise to do the same. We did not make this decision lightly, we interviewed at least four other photographers before thankfully contracting with the Botwinski's. Thankfully, because we are certain we could not have made a better choice. Kate & Sam were such a joy to work with. They instantly put us at ease - not such a simple task before saying "I do" and committing your life to another person - and made our day fun. They were hard-working, enthusiastic, passionate, creative, dedicated, respectful, attentive...the list could go on. Just take our word and hire Kate & Sam. They will enhance your wedding immensely while capturing brilliant photographs that will allow you to reflect on that day forever. The 9/27/2013 couple is grateful to Kate & Sam and jealous of the couples they have yet to shoot. We loved our experience with them. Thanks.
