[Creative Visionary | Wedding Master | Bold Soul | Lover of Laughter | Studio Assistant + Associate Photographer ]
Molly Kate is the lead associate photographer at Kreate Photography. She is a lead fine art photographer for weddings + lifestyle photography sessions.
There are only so many days in the year, and the demand for my services has exceeded what I can take on alone. I launched the Associate Program in 2016 after many months of cultivating a strong personal and professional relationship with Molly Kate.
The foundation of my business is my client relationships. I believe that each and every person I work with should not only receive extraordinary images but impeccable customer service and communication throughout the process. Offering Molly Kate means you experience flawless professionalism and receive the timeless fine art photography style that led you to Kreate Photography in the first place.
Molly Kate is a talented, creative and energetic photographer. She has photographed 60+ weddings for me and each one was beautiful, artistic and thoughtfully curated. As an entrepreneur with 10+ years of experience, I know talent and authenticity when I see it. Molly Kate has the gift and I am thrilled to have her on our team. I've expanded Kreate Photography so that we can continue serving couples, families, businesses, and individuals throughout California, and beyond.
It's no secret - I love LOVE.
"Love is a many splendid thing, love lifts us up where we belong, all you need is love!" (also, Ewan McGregor is a dreamboat in Moulin Rouge)
With a mix of documentary-style and fine art photography, let me be the one to capture every little moment you'll treasure for years to come. My priority as a photographer is capturing the moments during a wedding that are both beautiful and authentic.
If you love experiencing bold emotions and belly laughs, we're gonna get along just fine.
Live with wild abandon.
Laugh and be beautiful.
I started photographing at 14 when I took a trip to New Zealand and was enthralled by the beauty of the magnificent scenery. I continued my interest by taking darkroom photography classes during high school. My weird love of the scent of darkroom chemicals and the scientific magic of film developing got me hooked on the art form. Over time my passion grew into photographing anything I found beautiful: be it the wrinkles on my grandfather's skin, a strong and elegant dancer, or a small dead bird on the side of the road. In 2013, after studying the art form in darkrooms for seven years, I was awarded the Ralph Talbert Photography Scholarship for my accomplishments with photographing with a 4x5 camera and darkroom printing on fiber paper. In college I mastered working in both digital and film mediums, as well as creating bodies of work that focused on consistent themes and storytelling.
In May of 2014, I earned my BA in Photography from Sacramento State University, and was chosen as the Honor Student for the Department of Design. I now run my business in the San Francisco Bay Area and specialize in capturing the vast range of human emotions at weddings, in family sessions, and portraits.
I love working from home because it means I don't have to wear pants. If it's cold then I wear my Feejays (YUP, those are pajama pants with feet!). While I edit I'm either listening to My Favorite Murder podcast or watching The Office for the squillionth time. I'm happily married to a handsome ginger who makes me laugh every freakin day.
"Katie was an amazing person to work with for our favorite day thus far. From the first phone call asking for information about pricing and availability, she was professional while still warm and attentive to our specific needs. With our particular budget, we were able to work with Katie to connect with one of her amazing associate photographers - Molly Kate. Communication leading up to the wedding day was easy and always timely, and our in person meeting to discuss particulars felt like we were talking to old friends. We couldn't have asked for a better team to work with.
The day of, Molly Kate and her assistant photographer were amazing and captured everything we could have asked for and more. All our guests were impressed with how seamlessly Molly Kate worked and we are thrilled with the quality of the photographs. Even the follow-up from Katie and her team was beyond thoughtful. Our digital library was beautifully crafted, and the thumb drive of photos was sent in an engraved wooden box with our names. All the small details made choosing Kreate Photography and Design without a doubt the right one!"
