I would love to chat about your vision for your wedding day, and share any recommendations I may have for vendors and planning.

Ready to get in touch? After filling out my contact form, you will typically hear back from me within 24-48 hours.

Testimonials

“We feel so very lucky to be able to rave about our wedding photos. (Who is lucky enough to be able to do that?!). Katy photographed our outdoor adventure wedding and was the perfect person for the job. She communicated clearly, showed up early, and went above and beyond. She fit in with our family and friends seamlessly and was able to capture little moments of magic throughout the day. And the photos……far far exceeded our wildest expectations! Everyone who has seen our photos are amazed at how brilliant they are. I cannot say enough great things about Katy. I highly recommend her for your special day if you are lucky enough to be able to book with her.”

Dorothy Penaloza, MD

“I’m SO glad we found Katy Nevinsky! Since day 1, she went above and beyond for us, by scouting cool places for engagement photos and going to our wedding venue (without even being asked!) to seek the best places & time of day for lighting. This helped tremendously with planning. Katy is so professional, friendly, easy-going, and the quality of her work is simply unmatched. She is a great listener and she clearly knows what she’s doing. I’ve never liked so many photos of myself – and I love all of the ones she’s taken! We will continue using Katy as our photographer for important life events, as well as fun photo shoots for years! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!”

Jesse Hastings

“Katy is incredibly knowledgeable, not only in photography, but in many other areas of practice beyond the wedding industry. I believe this eclectic knowledge base enables her to see the bigger picture (pun intended) and planfully ensure that the most precious moments and elements of a couple’s wedding are captured! She’s always thinking several steps ahead, and always comes prepared. As an event planner, I personally appreciate her communication style which is very clear, thorough, and direct! Overall, Katy is an excellent photographer and a truly kind person to work with!”

Danielle Wade

Wedding Planner, The Event Alchemists

“Katy photographed my wedding and made it look like something from a fairy tale. She took each photo with such care that each and every shot is stunningly beautiful. She is so easy to work with and had tons of ideas for poses and locations. I’m so glad I chose her as my photographer!”

Caitie Hinchey

“We feel so lucky to have found Katy as our videographer. While we were on our honeymoon she sent the link to our wedding video and we got to relive the day through her exquisite footage and editing. Everyone who watches it immediately asks (while wiping away their tears) “WHO was you videographer?!” Katy has an incredible eye and ability for storytelling that encapsulated our special day better than I could have hoped for! Recommend 10/10”

Pinto Adhola

“Katy is a real artist! We had Katy as our wedding photographer back in 2014, and I have absolutely no regrets. I cherish our wedding photos very much and look at back at them every year on our anniversary. Katy had all kinds of ideas and tricks, and such a wonderful artistic eye!”

Julie Sinnamohideen

My husband and I just finished watching our wedding video and it was phenomenal!! We absolutely loved the quality, Katy really made the most of all our footage! She highlighted the sweetest moments of our day! Her incredible attitude made her a gem to work with… I am in love with her work. The wedding video she created for us was the very best money spent for our wedding. She went above and beyond what we expected & I hope this is not the last time we work with her. Brides, I highly recommend Katy Nevinsky’s videography.

I’d like to add one more thing – Katy is the Tony Robbin’s of wedding/ video services, in my opinion. She over delivers and is absolutely selfless when it comes to service. Your personal touch has made all the difference, Katy. Thank you thank you thank you 🫶

Keila Perez

Katie shot our engagement photos last minute, at a totally new to her spot, at night, in 50mph winds! She handled it all with grace and humor and the photos turned out phenomenal! We couldn’t recommend her enough!

Ariella Hubbard

“Working with Katy was so rewarding! I highly recommend booking her for any occasion or portrait session. Her confidence and creativity was reassuring and the variety of equipment she used impressive. My fiancé and I booked our engagement shoot with her and honestly did not expect to love our pictures as much as we do. This was our first professional shoot and Katy helped us to feel at ease, she utilized ques to direct us into postures and poses that look absolutely amazing! Despite freezing temperatures, she was able to capture our moment flawlessly. We are so happy and satisfied!!

Jamie Milletary

“Katy is an absolute miracle worker. We were shooting during a wind storm in what felt like sub-zero temperatures, and despite our cheeks being frozen in place, she made our pictures look straight out of a fairy tale. 10/10 would recommend to any and everyone. If you’re looking for someone kind, direct, professional, and who can make even the most camera shy of us feel right at home— you found your gal!”

Jackson Solomon

“Katy is the sweetest and so organized. Her attention to details does not go unnoticed. She also brings such a fun vibe to the day and will keep you smiling and laughing, even in 90 degree dry heat in the dead sun! Highly recommend working with her! So much talent!!”

FAQ

Do you have insurance?
I do! Just let me know if your venue requires a certificate of liability, and I’ll send that over to them.
How many pictures will we get?

Depending on whether or not you book a second photographer, you can expect anywhere from 30 to 100+ images per hour of photographing. Keep in mind this estimate varies depending on your wedding package, number of guests, venue type, and other factors.

What's your backup plan if you can't photograph our wedding as planned?

In the very rare event that I’m unable to photograph your wedding, I’ll make sure you’re covered by one of my colleagues or my contracted assistant. I have never missed a wedding (knock on wood) but I have covered weddings for others. It’s every photographer’s worst nightmare, so we all typically have each other’s backs and it seems to be pretty easy to find coverage, thankfully!

Do you do destination weddings?

While I am based out of Bend, Oregon, I love to travel, and have served clients all over the U.S. (I have lived in Oregon, Washington, Pennsylvania, and Hawaii, and these are some of my favorite places to travel back to!) I am also open to traveling outside of the country with advance notice.

Do you touch up images in our wedding gallery?

Every digital image delivered is post processed with my unique signature style of editing. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and other corrections. “Retouching” is not included; this includes but is not limited to: blemish removal, hair flyaway removal, lint removal, removal of bags under eyes, removing objects from the scene, adding objects to the scene, changing the size or shape of body parts.

What happens if it rains during my outdoor ceremony?

I am prepared with rain gear for my cameras and cute clear umbrellas for outdoor portraits. I honestly love photographing in the rain, there is something magical about how the photos turn out.

Do you deliver every image you shoot?

No, only your best images will be delivered (don’t worry, you won’t miss any of the good ones!). Trust me, you do not want to have to sort through all of the duplicate images, test shots, and missed focused shots. Not only is it overwhelming to look through everything, it would degrade the overall product quality.

Can you take drone portraits?

Yes, I am licensed for commercial use by the FAA (part 107). Certain weather and areas can restrict drone usage.

How long will it take to see our photos?

My turnaround time varies by season. You’ll be able to view your photos in an online gallery anywhere from 6-12 weeks after your wedding. You can also purchase professional quality prints and albums directly from your gallery!

Do you work with assistants or other photographers?

Yes, additional photographers can be added on to wedding packages. Sometimes I’ll bring an assistant or intern photographer at no additional cost to you.

Do you also offer video services?

Yes! I have several photographers and videographers that I work with to be able to offer both, inquire for more info!

How far in advance should we book you for our wedding?

Typically, couples book me about 13 months before their wedding date. I encourage you to reach out as soon as possible about my availability, even if you’re planning on a shorter time frame.

What camera gear do you use?

I use a wide range of Canon camera gear, and gear that is compatible with canon camera bodies. I currently photograph with a Canon R5 and R6 Mark II. Each of these cameras simultaneously record your images on two memory cards so your photos are always backed up.

I have downtime between events on my wedding day. Will I be charged for that downtime?

Between backing up images, setting up for the second venue, traveling to the second location, taking venue and detail shots, and making up for lost time due to unforeseen delays, there is never truly downtime during wedding days. In many cases, we use that “downtime” is used for portraits of you and your significant other.

What happens if we go over the contracted amount of time?

If you would like us to stay, we will charge the rates specified in your contract rounded to the closest 30-minute increment.
