I’m Kate, owner and lead photographer of Kate Cherry Photography, LLC. Photography is more than a passion for me; it's my way of life. It's the way I see the world, constantly finding the beauty in everything and making it come to life through images that are meant to be enjoyed forever. Whether it is a bride walking down the aisle to profess her devotion to the love of her life, or a new momma taking in every moment of her newborn's sweet breaths against her chest; these are the moments worth capturing that make you come alive and truly feel when you look back and see them over and over again.
I grew up on top of a mountain in the gorgeous Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. It was there I first learned to appreciate all of the beauty God has given us, whether capturing a sunset through a painting or later through the lens of a camera.
My journey with photography took off in high school, grew through college and really blossomed after getting married to my college sweetheart in 2007. In love with documenting love and all things that make you feel, I officially started my business in 2011. Two kids later and a couple of moves across the country, I’ve discovered the beauty of motherhood and all of the realness that entails. As life shifted, I realized more than ever I wanted to document the fleeting moments of time that were moving so fast, both for our family and for others.
Family is what drives me and is at the heartbeat of who I am. It’s why I have such a desire to capture moments for those who are in a new beginning and starting their life as two becoming one or expanding their family with little ones. The moments move fast, and life is ever-changing. I believe in real laughter; I believe in authentic and genuine connections; and I believe that God designed us with a purpose in mind for us to tell and share our stories. What better way to do that than capturing heart-felt timeless memories to share with loved ones for years to come. It’s the way we are able to keep our stories alive.
