Hi!! I'm Katie! I'm a local wedding photographer in St. Louis that is pretty much in love with weddings!!! There is so much that goes into a wedding!! It is the culmination of years and years of dreaming on the parts of so many people that love eachother. There is so much heart and emotion at every wedding that I have have ever been to and for me that's what makes each wedding so special. It's the love behind every detail, every burst of laughter and every tear that really stops you in your tracks. I strive to capture those moments in my photography. I truly believe that every photograph should be a work of art in itself, meant to tell just one piece of the whole story that is your wedding. :)

Please feel free to look through my work, my website, my blog. If you have any questions please let me know. :)

Katie was the best vendor at my wedding. She was budget friendly and very excited about my ideas. She was always one step ahead of me and had tons of ideas for locations. Having a budget was an important piece of my wedding puzzle and the quality that Katie gave my family was truly amazing. I'm pretty picky so please do yourself a favor, and check her out. I didn't like how other photogs charged me by the hour. Katie stayed all day and even waited till I tossed the bouquet! Can't say enough great things about the professional and sweet manner she runs her company.

Katie was friendly, calming, and accomodating to a bride and groom's needs on a hectic but fun day. We liked how she offered an engagement session prior to the wedding day so we could all get to know each other before the trip down the aisle. She was even willing to go to several different locations for us both for engagement session and wedding day. We loved having her there from start to finish it put me at ease knowing no precious moment would be missed and an priceless image captured. We believed her all day wedding day package was worth the cost as well, for other vendors price rose sognificantly to be there all day. It was obvious she loved taking photos and had a passion for capturing people's most memorable moments. We do however wish that she would have been more observant with small things such as a necklace being tucked into a shirt, cutting the top of the persons head off in close up photo, or having too much light to where images in the photo were faded out or overcome by the sunlight. Correcting these small things would certainly make her quality a notch above the rest. Overall we are pleased with the outcome and we would recommend her for other couples searching for a photographer in the St. Louis and Illinois area.

Getting a great photographer who truly was in the profession for their genuine passion in documenting and capturing incredible moments and special events was truly important for us. With the overwhelming choices of all of the various photographers to choose from, finding the "right" photographer for a reasonable price was such a stressful ordeal that I had to have a friend, who is an avid fan of photography, assist me with reviewing and narrowing down my options for the best picks. After reading Katie's blog and seeing her style, Katie was our top pick and we were fortunate she still had availability on our wedding day. Katie was super flexible, easygoing, personable, and adventurous from the moment we first had contact with her to the day we received our discs of our pictures. We had some unique and last minute ideas for our engagement and multicultural wedding ceremony (primarily a blending of various Vietnamese, American, & European traditions) and Katie was very accommodating and shared the same enthusiasm we had for the scenes and shots. She made us feel at ease and took amazing shots that captured some very special memories. She worked incredibly hard and was very efficient getting our pictures back to us. We definitely hope we can work with Katie again for future events and celebrations!

Katie was 100% outstanding! She was wonderful to work with preparing for our wedding day and absolutely wonderful on our wedding day. She captured the most magical moments of our wedding day and the 1-hour bride-groom wedding shoot on our wedding was so much fun - one of the best parts of the day.

Katie was extremely flexible, catering to our limited budget and lots of family. But she was also really creative; we got really unique, personable shots, that highlight us!

Prior to our wedding I actually wasn't that interested in our photos - I delegated it to my fiance, but I'm soooo glad he found Katie! I have gotten so many positive comments on our photos, it was definitely the best money we spent on our wedding.

Katie was professional, attentive and friendly from our first contact. Katie was the most prepared person involved in our wedding (including myself and all other bridal members!) She pays attention to every detail before during and even after the wedding. With her extensive preperation Katie acted as not only our photography but practically our wedding coordinator the day of the wedding too! She was a part of the entire day - from early morning hair appointment to our final farewell and every moment in between. Not only was I overly impressed with Katie, but her artwork (and really her photographs are truly art) are amazing. Looking through my album was like completely reliving the best day of my life and remembering every small detail and special moment. I can't stress how much we love Katie and her work, but I will say that we have found our forever family photographer. You can't go wrong if you chose Katie Beach Photography!

Katie is amazing! I actually came across Katie's name on Facebook during a time when I was in talks with a few other photographers who either weren't responsive, or couldn't offer what I really wanted. I checked out her page and website and liked what I saw, so I contacted her via email for my wedding. She responded to me within probably 30 minutes, and from that moment on, I knew I had found the right person to photograph my wedding. From our first meeting to go over her portfolio, to this very day when we're ordering prints through her online gallery, Katie is nothing but professional, but also personable and wonderful to work with. My husband and I (along with our families and friends) are blown away with the photos, and I can't wait to have Katie take more pictures for us in the future. Katie is fantastic, and if I could give a higher rating for her, I would! I would absolutely recommend Katie over and over!

Katie did a great job! She was with me all day from the beauty shop to the reception. She even provided a needle and thread when my dress broke! All of our pictures were delivered to us on CDs within 2 weeks and they were amazing! I highly recommend her.

Katie takes beautiful photographs! One of my favorite things about her style is her beautiful use of light. Katie blends into the party, she takes photos of what is happening.
