MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHERS

We agree on the big things in life like our shared Catholic faith, loving and serving others well through the gifts we've been given, and (of course) being a coca-cola only household. But when it comes to our personality types and interests, the two of us are the classic example of opposites attract. She's an extrovert, he's an introvert, she's artsy, he's philosophical, she's a Netflix binge watcher, he's a bookworm.

We think this is the perfect scenario for YOU because you always have someone on your side who can make you feel comfortable and relaxed while being playful, which is the secret ingredient to the BEST photography experience.

Ben asked Katzie out on their first date: St. Paul Saints Baseball Game.
(There was fireworks and boyband music - win!)

December

"Yeah, I will marry you!" were Katzie's teary-eyed words as Ben proposed under the lights in Rice Park on the day after Christmas

June

We tied the knot on June 23 and had so much wedding-day fun that we danced until the DJ closed at midnight  + we took a 2.5 week honeymoon back to Italy!

Our Story

Because YOU'RE PROBABLY WONDERING

It's a question we get asked a lot and to make it simpler, say this combo ten times faster: K.8.Z. 

Ben thinks its as cutesy as she is, but he might be biased. 

How to pronounce Katzie



Our mission in life is to preserve the legacy and love of others and to glorify God through the gifts He has given us.

In our career as photographers, we are invited into the most intimate moments of a person's life. We celebrate all of their happy milestones from graduating high school, getting engaged, saying I do, and growing a family. We don't take a single moment for granted because we've been honored and humbled to also capture the legacy of others in times of trial and suffering. In those moments, we revisit their photographs to remember the best of their life, their light, and their legacy. 

We are grateful beyond measure that we can use our passion for photography to answer that calling together as husband and wife.

The heart behind what we do

Rejoice with those who rejoice;
weep with those who weep.
- Romans 12:15
