Hi! My name is Katie Ludolph. I'm currently residing in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I am extremely passionate about photography. Ever since I was young I have been interested in taking photos. For a while I had an iPod touch that I went around snappin' pics on. Don't laugh—we all had to start somewhere right? When I was in 5th grade I got my first camera for my birthday. Of course it was just some $50 point-and-shoot camera from Walmart. But in the eyes of a 12 year old, that camera was the key to my future. In the years to come I upgraded to my first DSLR—that was when the fun really began. Ever since I have been devoted to learning more about photography.
I have recently, in the past several years, found my niche in portrait photography. I love the nature of people. I love the emotions, attitudes, and stories you can capture in one single image. People aren't kidding when they say a picture is worth a thousand words. I believe people are the most fascinating things to photograph in the world. I can't go anywhere without seeing people and envisioning the scene in a photograph. I take a mental snapshot. I note their gestures, their facial expressions, the way the light shines behind them. I envision all these minuscule details as great works of art
I moved to the OBX ten years ago, and not too long after began my interest in photography. Our little sandbar is a place like no other, providing a unique and captivating environment to hold your wedding. Complimenting my eye for photography, I have a heart and passion for our little islands. They are truly so special all around, and I believe it is a magical place to begin your journey into marriage. Salt air and ocean breeze is near and dear to my heart. Something I love just as much is learning your love story, it brings me so much joy to have a place in your journey.

"Katie is absolutely AHH-MAZING! I had reached out to her, less than a week before I'd be in NC, and THANK GOODNESS she had availability. She got us in, rescheduled due to a storm and STILL got astounding pictures while trying to race against another storm. Her talent is impeccable and her incredible personality made the session that much more enjoyable. I dare you to give her a shot, because she will NOT disappoint."
