Hello there!

We are Katye & Joe, a husband and wife team who photographs weddings and events throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic region.

No two photographers are alike, and we're no exception, complementing each other with different styles and ideas. Our process is collaborative, from editing photos to blogging about our various adventures with our couples.

We have each been part of the photojournalism community since 2000 - Joe starting out in Pennsylvania, Katye in California. Photography brought us together in 2003 at Syracuse University, where we earned graduate degrees in Photojournalism from the S.I. Newhouse School. Covering news assignments from small-town cultural festivals, to Capitol Hill hearings, we have fallen in love with storytelling. There is a story everywhere! We began photographing weddings in 2007, and had our own wedding in 2008!

We look forward to discussing your plans, and sharing our passion for photography with you! Read less

When looking for wedding photographers, we both agreed on one major detail: we wanted someone who was professional and documentarian in style. We definitely got both when choosing Joe and Katye at the Happy Couple! The fact that Joe went to Penn State also sealed the deal with my husband!

We met Joe for an initial consultation and hired him immediately. After discussing our vision for the big day we decided to bring Katye in as well to document the wedding from a second perspective. They arrived on the wedding day to scout shoot locations and chose a lovely location for our first look. Our outdoor ceremony was amazing and Katye and Joe pulled us aside during the reception to capture some shots during sun set.

I would definitely recommend the Happy Couple to anyone in DC/New England looking for an amazing photography team!

The Happy Couple Photography went above and beyond for our June 2016 wedding. I knew as soon as I found their website I wanted to hire them, and believe it was one of the best choices we made for our wedding! The photographs are absolutely beautiful and tell the entire story of the day, even the parts I didn't realize he was there for! The photographs were returned within a month, and there were tons of them, both in color and black and white. We chose to go with a photo booth, which I highly recommend because the pictures our friends and family took were so hilarious. I will treasure these photographs forever, and plan to tell everyone I know to hire them!

Joe was an amazing photographer and did a fantastic job on our wedding. He worked with us to make sure we were able to get a good balance of family pictures and candid pictures and was very responsive to our requests throughout the day. We couldn't be happier with the photos!

Selecting Joe as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Not only was he easy to work with and very responsive, but the photographs came out better than we even hoped was possible!

Starting with the engagement photos, Joe really set us at ease as we felt awkward about the shoot but wanted a nice picture to use for our save the dates and to capture the special time in our relationship. Joe was able to somehow get nice, natural photos in an hour despite our initial discomfort with being photographed.

As for the wedding day, we decided against spending money on a videographer, so we were really relying on the photos to capture the events of the day. Again, Joe more than delivered. We have photographs of moments I don't even remember because the day was such a blur! And he managed to take the pictures while seamlessly blending in so we could fully experience the event. Joe was highly accommodating to all of our requests and dealt with requests from family members as well. We hope to work with Joe and The Happy Couple Photography again to capture major life events in the future!

We were delighted to work with Joe and Katye for our recent wedding. From the beginning, they were very communicative and willing to be flexible. On the day of the wedding, they were friendly, professional, and nearly invisible :) We appreciated their good senses of humor and willingness to be creative due to rainy weather. Within about a month, we got our photos, and they were absolutely amazing- better than we could have hoped. They truly captured all the emotions of the day, and we can feel our hearts getting warmer every time we look at them. Can't recommend Joe and Katye highly enough!!

Joe and Katye, a.k.a The Happy Couple, exceeded our wildest expectations on all fronts! Not only was the quality of their work outstanding, they are also wonderful people and a joy to work with. Their energy, enthusiasm, passion for amazing photography, and kindness all contributed to making our wedding day so incredibly special. From adventurous photo shoots post-ceremony, to more intimate moments throughout the day, Joe and Katye were present with us. On many other occasions, when viewing our photo book, I thought to myself "I had no idea they were taking photos of that moment!" This is perhaps the best description of their talent and professionalism - providing direction and collaboration when appropriate, but also discreetly taking beautiful photographs of more intimate moments without being noticed.

My wife and I loved working with Joe and Katye and we cannot give them enough praise for their work, or a high enough recommendation for others interested in artful and skilled photography.

We used The Happy Couple Photography for our wedding on June 6, 2015 and it was an incredible experience. Joe and Katye were super flexible with our requests, and captured the day perfectly. Everyone at the event commented on how professional they were throughout the night. I would 100% recommend Joe & Katye for your event, and we look forward to using them again in the future! :)

When it comes to wedding photography (and photography in general), I can't recommend Joe and Katye enough. Their work is beautiful, timeless, and they are both delightful to work with. We were pretty overwhelmed with the sheer number of choices and styles to choose from. As a journalist and photographer myself, I was relatively picky.. We wanted someone who could take an amazing picture in the camera and wouldn't rely on post-processing to create whatever style is "in" right now, and also someone who could beautifully photograph the planned portraits and key moments of the day, as well as the amazing moments throughout the day that may otherwise be missed. I stumbled upon The Happy Couple on a DC Wedding Blog and several of their photos moved me to tears! They are both trained in photojournalism and it shows in their ability to see small, sweet moments and capture them beautifully. They are also so much fun to be around! After my fiancé and I met with Joe, we canceled our other photography interviews because we had so much fun talking to him, we knew he was the type of person we would want to be around on our wedding day! He also made the process incredibly easy and even let us add a few extra hours to our contract just weeks before the wedding when we realized our timeline was getting too tight. Even when things got a bit crazy right before we had to head down for photos, Katye was incredibly calm and got so many amazing photos. My fiancé and his groomsmen loved having Joe around as they got ready. We were ecstatic when we got our photos back, both from the engagement session and the wedding day. Turnaround was fast (about 3 weeks for engagement, 4 weeks for wedding) and the photos are GORGEOUS. Katye and Joe are two of the best wedding photographers in DC and know how to capture the emotion and beauty of the day. You will not be disappointed- hiring The Happy Couple was the best decision we made for our wedding!

We worked with Joe for our engagement and wedding photos. I was immediately a fan of The Happy Couple's work as I was doing my research on photographers, and I was so happy Joe was available on our May wedding date. Joe was super easy to work with, and had an organized process for everything. And not only were our pictures beautiful, but we got them back in record time! We also appreciated the picture hosting site and format they use to share and distribute our photos. We are so happy Joe was able to capture beautiful pictures on our special day!
