Hi, it's Kate!
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME.
I grew up in the Philippines and mostly everyone in my family still lives there. I have very few family in Reno, NV and barely any in the US. Now that I'm a mom, my heart constantly longs for the next time we're all together again so my daughter can experience our love and joy as a whole.
This is why I understand that what you're really investing in as you plan the biggest day of your life is togetherness. Everyone is coming from everywhere and you just want someone to care about the memories you make as you bring your families together on your wedding day.
I get it and I would absolutely love to help.
I love everything about my work, but what I'm most excited about is getting to know you. Most couples feel unheard, so they're worried that they would end up with generic photos. With the Kate Stapleton Photography experience, I'm committed to getting to know who you are as a couple and how you feel towards each other. Because you don't just deserve beautiful photos but they also have to be meaningful. I've helped countless couples feel confident on their wedding day because nobody wants to feel stressed out... life is just way too damn short for that and I'd really love to help you, too!
As a wife and mom...
Family is everything, but planning to have everyone together for a once-in-a-lifetime event is stressful. I feel you! I'm committed to documenting your wedding in a way that feels like "you" because it's personal.
BE CONFIDENT ON YOUR WEDDING DAY.
SPEND TIME WITH YOUR LOVED ONES.
As YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER...
You should know that everything you're doing for your wedding is all worth it. I believe you deserve to enjoy the biggest day of your life, so you can celebrate freely and have meaningful photographs to look back on later.
ENJOY THE BIGGEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE.
FROM PAST COUPLES

-PRISCILLA & DAVID
I met the most sincere person in 2013, my husband Jeff wears his heart on his sleeve. I thought our life was complete when we found each other. But in 2015, we were unexpectedly pregnant and since then our life has been a whirlwind. Our home now is filled with pranks, butt tickles, and lots of big emotions. Day by day, we teach one another how to best love each other and I think we are learning well.
Just like all couples, Jeff and I fight. But as the years go by, we're learning to find a happy medium on resolving our challenges together. At the end of the day, we always come back to one another as people better than the previous version of ourselves.
The biggest lesson I've learned in marriage is to love the person in front of you on good days and on tough days... (especially on tough days!) The way you treat people is a big testament on the person that you are, so love them and love them hard.
