Ariel here,

I’m the spunky and energetic photographer behind Ariel Kaitlin Photography! I like warm hugs (if you get that Disney reference then we’re def going to be fast friends), am constantly on the lookout for the best chai, and shout “shit biscuits” just a little too often. I’m here to help guide my fun-loving, nerdy couples through the wedding planning process and offer expletive-laden compliments when they inevitably kill it at their session. Most importantly though, I will celebrate this exciting time in your life with you while becoming a dear friend for years to come.

My absolute favorite part of wedding and elopement photography is working with couples to get those amazing and dreamy couples portraits. I truly believe a relationship is a partnership, and that translates into marriage. The highlight of your wedding should be you and your partner choosing each other every day, and what better way to do that than with photos of just you two?!

Your couples portraits are a time to really show who you two are whether that be funny and energetic or relaxed and cuddly. The couples’ portraits are an extension of who you are as a couple together and the story you tell of your wedding day. With an elopement, you can really strip away all of the fluff of a wedding and get to what really matters: the celebration of you two together choosing to commit to one another for the rest of your days.

"Ariel and Alex were absolutely amazing to work with! First of all they are the funniest people to be around. During our engagement shoot they had me and my husband cracking up!! Ariel is one of the sweetest people I've met she was really focused and passionate about her work. As for their work I cannot say enough about how truly talented they are. All of our pictures came out flawless from the engagement shoot, to my bridal portraits, and of course the wedding photos themselves. Our families and friends were in awe when we showed them the photos they are seriously stunning. They captured each moment perfectly and I could not be happier with the outcome. Thank you guys for everything!!"
