A real, live person from the start
Experience driven customer service with your needs in mind
Session wardrobes designed with you
Wall art created for you taking in to account your wants, needs, and home design
A fun, relaxing photo session with no added pressure to perform
Sitting fees range from $150-$350, which include your session time only. Prints begin at $150 and most of my clients average $1500-$3000 per selection appointment. The beauty of this process is that you are guided every step of the way. I will never just hand you your pictures and leave you to figure it out on your own.
During the selection appointment I help you to stay objective and only purchase the images you are in love with. That way, when we install your art, you have a great feeling of accomplishment and pride.
My family and portrait clients first pay for their session time. This only includes the time and talent of your photographer (me) . I have no minimums which allows you the freedom to only purchase the art that you love! After your session we will schedule a selection appointment.
In this way you won’t be thrown a handful of digitals and told “ good luck”. Deciding what to do with your images and ordering can be time consuming and overwhelming. With this expertly crafted process you walk away feeling accomplished in record time!
As always, any image that you purchase will come with a companion digital for sharing on social media.
“ Just wanted to tell you, you have easily become one of my favorite photographers 😍😍Like, ok I’m going to try to explain This- ya know when you’re scrolling thru FB or the internet or insta or whereever and you come across photos of women or men, or children and you’re just like “omg, are there actually people out there that are that gorgeous without even trying, like natural beauty!?” And it just kind of stops you, like damn, just so damn beautiful, but then you think, ok, that person is probably fake, or at least like some plastic surgery, dyed hair, SOMETHING! There’s just no such thing as “that beautiful.”
Well when I’m scrolling thru, I see your pics (don’t see the name first, always notice the picture) and I’m like, “another gorgeous photo by some photographer that real people could never afford. This is some hoity toity photographer that somehow makes these gorgeous photos, that you don’t see anywhere but hanging up in royalty’s home.” But then I see your name. And it’s like OMG that is Katie’s photo! I mean that is a real person, a real person who taught herself that talent, and it makes it so damn real and raw and amazing!
So... that’s how I feel when I see your pictures and I feel like the post just went weird 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 “

“My nephews wedding was so amazing. I know the photos will help me relive the magical day. Thanks Katie for all you do. You are amazing and will recommend you to everyone I know.”
“ Katie gave us the most beautiful, dreamy engagement photos that perfectly captured "us." I can't stop looking at them! Neither my fiancé nor I normally like being in pictures, but Katie made the session really fun and easy so we felt and looked like models in the pictures :) I love her style of photography. Can't wait to do it again for our wedding! Katie is delightful to work with, and she really makes sure her clients are well taken care of. Awesome photos+ 1 awesome photographer = 5 stars! “
“ Katie met with us at coffee shops to go over options. She basically planned out our wedding day schedule. She made us feel so natural and calm during the engagement pictures and during the wedding day - every picture is so candid and fun! She let us be ourselves. It came through in the pictures. We recommend Katie wholeheartedly. “
Katie and her assistant were amazing at my daughters Wedding at Simply Ballroom, Omaha on June 23, 2018. They were both very organized, professional, calm and extremely patient. Katie did an amazing job on their engagement pictures and I can’t wait to see all the beautiful shots from the wedding! Highly recommended!
“ Katie did our wedding/reception pictures. Everything went so smooth from consultation to the stress of the big day. I was worried how I was going to be with a camera in my face while I was thinking of other things but Katie made that worry go away. My husband and I thank you Katie. “

“ Katie was so sweet! She made us feel so comfortable and was very involved in our day-of activities. I'm absolutely OBSESSED with how beautiful our photos are. They came out just as perfect as she helped make our wedding day!! Shes fun, and full of energy ( in the best way ) and I'd easily recommend her for anyone in search of a photographer! "

“ Katie has a special way of making you feel comfortable enough to be yourselves and then some. I am the worst person for planning......anything really.......and she even helped with some planning for our big day. Turn around on our pictures was FAST! Thankfully she LOVES to travel, so I don't feel like we have lost her completely since leaving Omaha. Can't wait to see what other life changing memories Velvet Sage helps us capture <3 “
