Boston Wedding Photographer – Kate McElwee Photography


Boston Wedding Photographer – Kate McElwee Photography

I’m a Boston wedding photographer with a photojournalistic approach and a style that is fresh, modern and emotional. My specialties? Decisive moments, big hugs, dramatic backgrounds, perfect details, sideways glances, goofy expressions and raw emotion.

Your wedding day is a celebration of YOU, and of your beautiful, quirky, funny relationship. I create bold and vibrant images that capture the essence of who you are, both as individuals and as a couple, through the eyes of the loved ones surrounding you.

I capture how you feel on your wedding day, as well as how those around you experience it. You’ll experience joy and laughter as you relive the funny, quirky moments of your day, and feel deeply loved when you see the sweet, quieter ones. My photos will take you on an emotional journey that is intimate, exciting, and – at times – surprising.

Please take a few minutes to take a look around my site. The portfolio above represents some of my favorite wedding photos from the last few years as a Boston wedding photographer; for a more in depth look at individual weddings, follow the “GALLERIES” menu link. You’ll also see engagement photos there. My most recent work can be found on my blog, and on my Facebook page.  If you like what you see, you can find lots of info on pricing here. If you love my photos and feel I’d be a good fit for your wedding day, please get in touch so that we can set up a time to meet! I’d love to welcome you into my home, and get to know you both – and of course hear all about your plans for your big (or small) day.
