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.

Love, Kate & Sam Read less

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.

It is incredibly difficult to put into words how wonderful Kate Botwinski photography is- their photos seriously speak for themselves. Not only are the pictures that Kate and Sam take breathtaking and inspiring, but they themselves are amazing people! I hired them to shoot our wedding after 2 phone conversations with Kate (after meeting with and interviewing 4 other renowned photographers in the cities). She immediately made me feel incredibly special and you could tell she genuinely cared about my wedding as if it was a dear friends wedding. I didn't even meet Kate until our wedding day-- which may sound crazy to most brides-- but I just knew that she would be amazing as I constantly swooned over her blog trusting that the pictures she takes capture real moments. Kate and Sam were extraordinaire on our wedding day- they put my now husband and me at complete ease and captured us in our natural element which reflected sheer happiness, love, and joy. Since our wedding, the texts, phone calls, fb, instagram, blog posts and sweet package have kept us re-living our wedding day and forever grateful to Kate and Sam for capturing it! I have seriously squealed with excitement on several occasions upon seeing the pictures they took! I adore you Kate and Sam and recommend you with the highest regards. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Wonderful photographers. They are very enthusiastic and passionate for what they do and it shows in their work. They traveled to San Fransico for our engagement photos and they turned out wonderful, I still enjoy looking at them to this day. They just shot our wedding on 9.21.2013 and Kate and Sam were so great to work with. If I had a question Kate got back to me in a timely manner and was a great help in planning our special day. The photos that we have seen thus far are absouletly breathe taking. I would recommend Kate and Sam to anyone for any pictures! Loved working with them!!!

We booked Kate and Sam for our September wedding, and we could not be more happy with our decision. They have a marvelous combination of being extremely talented and extremely fun to work with. In all of our communication, Kate was very professional (and prompt at responding, if we didn't connect right away over the phone/email) and also communicated a great, genuine joy about photographing weddings. We were so comfortable working with Kate and Sam at both our engagement session and on the wedding day. They captured so much of our wedding day and were always nearby, but they were never distracting or intrusive. We've seen a few photos and are very happy with the results, just as we were very happy with the engagement photos.

After going through the wedding planning process, my new husband and I thought the most wonderful vendors were the very busy people who somehow managed to make it seem like our wedding was the only one they had on their plate. Kate and Sam were a perfect example of this - they brought so much genuine, fun, positive energy to our wedding day (and the communication in the weeks leading up to it). We could not recommend them more highly.
