WITH KT MERRY

We’ve got a lot in common, you and I.  

We are adventurers, explorers, and seekers—searching for something more: something bigger, grander, and more beautiful than we’ve ever known before. My life and my work have been driven by this search for meaning. 

I began my career assisting some of the top fashion photographers in the world—they taught me all about lighting, composition, style, and working on the road. But when it came time to embark on my own shooting career, I yearned to create images with a deeper meaning—images without a shelf-life. Something more than a trendy glossy for a passing season. I wanted to capture the stories, moments, and feelings that endure.



"i yearned to create images with a deeper meaning—images without a shelf-life...

I wanted to capture the stories, moments, and feelings that endure."

For the last decade, I’ve had the privilege of documenting adventurous, exceptional couples, as they celebrate their marriage and take their relationships to deeper levels of commitment, exploration, and enduring love.

Working seamlessly with my husband and business partner, Chad, we seek to balance the curated with the raw, and composed with the real. We’re there to tell the authentic story of a couple’s wedding day and the journey they took to get there.

Yes, I’m devoted to my art, but I value our client’s experience and the impact of our work above all. In a quest for photography with meaning, images that capture fleeting moments, and oft-forgotten details, we apply the same principles and practices we’ve developed for our signature wedding photography to our work with major fashion houses, editorial partners, and our true passion project: Render Loyalty.
