Organic photography for your heart, mind, soul & strength. The art of capturing natural, honest, true to life images.

the style: free and organic - with a preference to capture the natural things we do when no one is watching.

the method: we believe that professional photography should be affordable. so we strive to make packages and products that cater to the everyday person. we don't push prints, and all of your packages come with CDs of your images - not only does this keep our pricing affordabe, but it keeps us away from the "store front" and instead, where we are better serving you - behind the camera.

the truth: whether the style be photojournalistic, candid, or traditional – it will always be true to the moment. the goal of mustard seed photography is to capture those moments as they occur, both in everything personal and work related... Read less

We worked with Mustard Seed Photography for our Engagement session, Wedding and my Bridal Session. Typically I don't feel comfortable in front of the camera but Kat makes everything easy and fun! I walked away from all three sessions wanting more. She is an incredible photographer and knows exactly what to do to get a perfect image out of every shot! I am not only impressed by the ease of the session or the photos she takes, but her style and editing takes it to another level. The thought and detail that she not only puts into her work but also into her packaging and branding is phenomenal. I highly recommend Mustard Seed Photography! Can't wait to work with Kat again!

Kat with Mustard Seed Photography is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Not only is her work beautiful and elegant, but she is such a delight to work with. My fiance and I both felt that having the best photographer for our wedding was more important to us than tall flowers, expensive decorations, etc -- thus we chose MSP! After all, photos are forever. We are both a bit shy and have never "posed" in front of a camera before, so we were a bit nervous about our engagement shoot. That all disappeared bc Kat puts you at ease right away, simply with the way she gives feedback and makes you laugh -- and, the photos come out great! (which is always a plus)! :) On our wedding day, I knew we were in good hands. She captured all of the intricate little details of the wedding that I overlooked (since I was "getting ready" for awhile) and portrayed them in such a beautiful and natural way. She made sure we got all the shots we "planned" ahead for and also threw in some spontaneous creative ideas too. I am so thankful that we got to work with Kat -- she truly is the best photographer a bride (or friend) could want! I would trust her to capture all of my life's "greatest moments." :)

Kat and Loren did a fantastic job shooting our engagement photos, bridal portraits, and wedding! They have gone above and beyond our expectations! I am very nervous being the center of attention and knowing I'm being photographed, but they did a wonderful job keeping me comfortable and captured the most important moments without me even noticing they were there. Our photos turned out spectacular and I am very happy with the way our memories were captured. Not only did they do a great job with photography, but Kat and my husband became fast friends and she has done so much to help him work on launching his own videography business! Photography was the most important part of our wedding for us because there are no do-overs for capturing those special moments. I felt confident from the beginning the not only would Kat capture them, but that the finished product would be beautiful.

I would highly recomment using them and can't wait to use them for something else!

My fiance and I got blessed to get these two wonderful women to get our engagment pics done with. Our wedding photographer was on maternity leave. I thank her all the time for recomending them. They captured the true love between us and had the patience of Jobe. We got stuck in traffic that ran an hour into our scheduled time and they just smiled and said no stress! Also they were so wonderful with our two dogs we brought along. Absolutely the best!! Can't wait to use them again in my future!!

Kat with Mustard Seed Photography was awesome! We loved her and we loved our photos! Kat photographed our engagements, our wedding/rehearsal and then after wedding bridal portraits. There were so many pictures to choose from and such selection. Despite what she says we are not photographic at all and it was really her skill and direction that made the photos so great. We would highly recommend her and Rachel, the editor who accompanied us on one session, to anyone looking for wedding pictures, engagments, bridals, family portraits-- pretty much anything! Thank you Kat and Rachel for capturing so many of our memories on that special day! We really appreciate all of your hard work!

Kat at Mustard Seed was so friendly and really worked with my husband and me as our wedding plans changed. We originally had plans for a medium sized wedding (and more hours of photography) but finally decided on a very small wedding. We could tell that she cared about our experience and wanted to make our wedding day photos special. She was really sweet, and my bridesmaids and I enjoyed her company while she was taking photos as we were getting ready.

WOW!!!! What an amazing job on our photos! I can't begin to tell you how
phenomenal the photos look! You did such an amazing job of capturing us
in the moment. I love, love, love how your eye caught us through the
camera lens.

All I wanted was a photographer who shot photos candidly and not "posed", and Kat's team did just that! We look natural, and happy with out frozen smiles. Not only did she give us the entire day to shoot our morning wedding, but the album and the cd with over a thousand photos came with in only a week after the wedding.

I recommend Mustard Seed Photo to any bride!

Mustard Seed did an amazing job at capturing all our important moments of our wedding. I felt so relaxed with Mustard Seed taking our photos, which is just what I needed after being super stress with last minute disasters that come along with planning a wedding. We are extremely pleased with our photos, especially since I never felt that the cameras were in our face, however they seem to have capture every second! : ) Kat is an amazing photographer and Rachel is equally as amazing a capturing the perfect picture, they are a dynamic duo!

Most amazing photos ever; I would recommend them to any bride or anyone, she is worth every penny and more!
