Hello! Thanks for Stopping By.
Let's Create Beautiful Memories Together!
Kathleen Pace - Originally from Philadelphia Pennsylvania, I moved to Chapel Hill in 2005. I love living in the Triangle!
I photograph weddings and portraits full time. I primarily shoot with two DSLR camera bodies and welcome requests for shooting a few rolls of film. I offer film as an addition to digital negatives.
Most weddings I shoot as a team with my daughter Amelya, she attends Chapel Hill School now and is a great help to me creatively. She assists me with off camera flash and is really rockin' it as a 2nd shooter! Shooting weddings together is a dream come true for me! I get to share a part of what I do, and she gets to see who I am outside of our home, and I really love that! We enjoy taking in all the excitement and emotion of the day! I cry when I see parents get emotional, and she feels the emotions when she sees the BFF's give their toasts. It's difficult to put into words but being a witness to so much love really impacts my life and now that I get to share this experience with my daughter, it makes me feel so grateful. We love shooting weddings together! I have so many favorite parts that I enjoy photographing, but lately, I am LOVING the receptions! Everyone is so relaxed and full of positive enthusiasm during the reception, It's a lot of fun to photograph!
Much of my photography is taken in nature, I love outdoor and natural light photography above all other styles it speaks to me the most. Many couples that hire me have outdoor weddings or a combination of indoor outdoor. My favorite venues so far are The Bradford, High Grove Estates, and The Harvest House. I have also loved the many garden weddings ( Duke & UNC, among them ) I have photographed! I look forward to photographing UNC's Forrest Theater in 2018! Truly an ethereal place! I love local weddings but hope to book the mountains and beaches of North Carolina!
I'm a creative spirit, liberal in my views and welcome the opportunity to photograph any couple of any race, religion or sexual orientation.
My approach is different from many photographers, I am not just another vendor giving them cookie cutter images. I am fully invested in my couples whether they book 6 months or 15 months out. It sounds cliche but by the time the wedding day happens I feel like a friend. I always give little-unexpected surprises to them to show my gratitude. I am fortunate to attract really cool clients that are laid back and just want to have a blast with me.
