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

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 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.

Kate and her husband, Sam, were the best vendors I had for my entire wedding expierence. I found Kate online, and was immediately blown away by the beautiful work she does. As I browsed through her work, I could feel the emotions these people I had never seen or met were feeling. She has a true gift of capturing every memorable moment. From that point on, I didn't want to look for another photographer. I called Kate that evening, and we had a lovely long chat about just about everything. We talked like we had been lifelong friends. She is so personable, and just a true genuine sweet person. We decided to do an enegement session first, and I'm so glad we did.
My fiancé and I had never done professional photos before, so this was brand new to us. Kate and Sam made us feel so comfortable, and the pictures looked so natural and unforced, not 'posey' but really genuine. She helped me throught the wedding process, checking in, reccomending vendors she loved, and just being there during what can be a very frantic process! She was excellent about helping with the day of schedule, which definitely put my mind at ease. When the big day came, she was there, ontime, ready, and so supportive. Sam and Kate are not only a beautiful couple, and team, but so talented, and passionate for their work. Nobody could work harder, or care more about your wedding, and making you feel and look more beautiful than you could ever imagine.

Kate + Sam are so incredibly talented and highly recommended. They did our engagement pictures, wedding pictures and we booked them again for 2 shoots with our entire family! We are in love with their work and love the experience they bring to every shoot, and that's something you just can't compete with. Every moment is fun, they are very tuned into detail and, on the wedding day, they are so tuned into the needs of the bride and groom! Needless to say, we found our lifetime photographers.

When you book a vendor who is of such high quality, you expect great service and a great product. Kate + Sam do all of that, while running a high quality and highly productive business, but they also really CARE. You will get a beautiful product from two exceptional people who simply care about other people.

Thanks Kate + Sam!

There are not enough words to describe how amazingly wonderful it was to work with Kate and Sam! They are the most genuine, down to earth people, and spend countless hours getting to know their couples to make the day completely perfect and seamless. I don't know how they captured each moment of our wedding day so magically, or how our personalities show through each and every picture, but I do know that there are no other photographers we would have shared that day with. It is crazy how fast you forget some of the details of your wedding day, but when we sit down and look through our photos together, every memory comes back. We LOVE Kate and Sam of Kate Botwinski Photography!!! You couldn't make a better choice than to share the planning and memories of the best day of your life with this amazing couple!

I stumbled upon Kate Botwinski's blog while helping a close friend plan their wedding and completely fell in love with their pictures and the way that they captured the emotion of each couple. When I became engaged a short time later, I emailed Kate the very next day as I knew I had to have them for my own wedding. I was plesentaly surprised when Kate called me back the very same day and after talking with her, I felt as if I had known her all my life-- we clicked so well! I knew they were the perfect photographers for our day and now a year later and the wedding behind us, I am even more thankful for that decision.

Kate and Sam were so amazing throughout the entire wedding process, the best wedding vendor we used hands down! They take the time to learn about you and how you work as a couple and incorporate that into the pictures that they take! Everyone that has seen our engagement and wedding pictures have commented on how they can see our personalities and the way that we love eachother come through in our photographs. And not only that, but they also document their time with you on their blog in a way that is so sweet and special. Kate's talent of writing is just as amazing and beautiful as the pictures they take. Having the day recounted through their eyes was such a wonderful added bonus!

I would recommend Kate Botwinski Photography to anyone! Not only will you get amazing pictures and beautiful words that far exceed your expectations, you will walk away with the most geniune and sweet new friends!

Kate and Sam are awesome. We had so much fun shooting our engagement photos with them, and they were the BEST on our wedding day. They are genuinely nice people, and so so so easy to work with. (Advice to future brides - find a photographer you LOVE. Since they are around you all day, they are the one vendor that can absolutely make or break your day.) Kate and Sam were so easy going on our wedding day, yet still did a great job getting every shot we wanted!

The reason we put a 4 for value is simply that they are fairly expensive. You do get a lot for your money, and we still think it was worth spending more than we originally planned. Although you may find cheaper options, the quality of their photos are unmatched -- and Kate and Sam are the nicest in the business. I'll say it again - they are so genuine, and truly care about each of their clients. (Kate was in tears about 3 times behind her camera on our wedding day! How sweet is she!?) They're the best, we'd definitely recommend them!

We absolutely adore everything about kate botwinski photography! Kate & Same are a kind, creative, inspirational, talented couple! The minute you meet the couple, it's impossible to not fall in love with them. Not only do they do fabulous work, they do it in a painless, fun manner while also being very professional. They were very respectful of any special requests we had asked and just very accommodating. We will be calling them back for family photos someday! :)

The minute you meet the couple, it's impossible to not fall in love with them. Not only do they do fabulous work, they do it in a painless, fun manner while also being very professional. They were very respectful of any special requests we had asked and just very accommodating. We will be calling them back for family photos someday! :) Read less

Kate and Sam of Kate Botwinski Photography provided us with SO MANY wonderful photos of our wedding day and engagement. In addition to the photos, Kate and Sam are a great team and very easy to work with. They made us feel comfortable and they were flexible with ideas that we had pertaining to our photography sessions. Their heartfelt blog posts about each couple are genuine and illustrate that they truly get to know and appreciate each couple they come in contact with. For quality photos, I highly suggest Kate and Sam to other couples. They are wonderful people, and I am lucky to have worked with them!

I can't say enough good things about the Botwinski's. Since I was planning from out of town I wasn't able to meet Kate until my wedding day, however her enthusiasm over the phone and through e-mails was contagious and I had no reserves about booking her. While taking pictures on the big day she was able to keep on schedule while still making sure we all moved right along. I would recommend her to ANYONE!

Truly my favorite vendor! I am crazy about their work! Kate was extremely helpful in creating a timeline for the day of the wedding and she kept us on schedule. She went out and scouted photo locations ahead of time and met with me to discuss them! I love her visions and I can't wait to see our final photos :)

This is actually a review from the mom of the bride, not the bride, but
I honestly can't even tell you how much I loved having Kate and her husband Sam photograph our daughter's wedding! From the engagement photos on, we have been SO impressed with everything they've done! They managed to capture what seems like every aspect of the wedding with incredible detail, artistry, and beauty! I'm so happy that we'll have such wonderful memories to look back on and cherish throughout the years to come...

Not only did the photos turn out beautifully, but they are also very prompt and professional! They did all the extra photos we requested and were helpful with their suggestions and ideas. Kate came up with some wonderful ideas for location photos in an industrial area with some interesting buildings and railroad tracks that were taken between the wedding and the reception. It really made the photos unique and wonderful!

I also can't say enough about how wonderful they are as people! So easy to talk with and be around...they didn't feel like a vendor there to do their job...they really felt like family! They even managed to make me forget how much I hate being in photographs! I'm excited to use them for all of our future photography needs and they'll always be part of the family! I'll be recommending them to everyone I know...

I was so thrilled to work with Kate and Sam for a wedding in April 2011. It's so easy to see why people love working with them! They were so personal and kind and professional, I could tell that they truly loved the couple that they were photographing and you could definitely see it in the photos that they took! Absolutely STUNNING!

As a wedding coordinator, I really appreciated their professionalism and ease as I worked with them leading up to and on the day of the wedding. I will be recommending them highly to my clients and to anyone considering them!

Beautiful photos, wonderful people, excellent service!

Kate Botwinski Photography has been wonderful to work with. They were flexible in the packages, making sure I had everything I wanted, and cutting things I didn't need. Kate and Sam are full of energy, and very professional. My favorite wedding vender by far! They create beautiful pictures, I couldn't be happier with the results!

Kate Botwinski Photography did a great job on our wedding day (and our engagement photos). The quality of her photos are some of the best we've seen and they're a blast to work with. The photos that she was able to produce definitely exceeded our expectations and captured our day perfectly. The drawbacks that we experienced with Kate Botwinski Photography were a) the accessibility we had to our pictures and b) the price. They don't distribute discs of your proofs so if there is a picture you want, you HAVE to purchase a print (the prints are very expensive). Their package rates were significantly higher than other photographers as well. Bottom line: they take great pictures and will capture your event extremely well, but they're expensive, and you're going to have to spend a lot of money above and beyond your package rate if you want hard copies of specific prints.

Where do I begin with telling you why I think you should hire Kate Botwinski Photography for your one and only day? The product; her pictures, are real. They capture almost every emotion and action that happened during our wedding day. When I look at our pictures I am instantly taken back to the excitement I felt when I walked down the isle or the love I felt as my daddy talked about his baby girl growing up and getting married. The best part though, is it isn't just me who sees the trueness of the day, it is that everybody else who views the pictures does as well. Then there is the extras. It isn't just the day of, it is when you see the finished book or the printed enlargements that your pictures come to life. Kate puts so much time and energy into making sure the work she physically puts in your hands is perfection. But almost more memorable than the amazing work that Kate does is her personality and character. This woman truly loves hearing about your love story, or the little details you've spent hours working on that no one else will notice. She doesn't just show up to snap some pictures and leave, she genuinely cares about who you are as individuals and as a couple to give you the shots that are perfect for you, not just the average joe. From the first moment you talk with Kate on the phone or in person, you will understand why her heart and her passion will win out any other photography vendor you could choose. As an art teacher I was very concerned with our photographer and the quality of their work and I HIGHLY recommend Kate Botwinski Photography for your choice of photographer on your wedding day.
