Kathryn Ivy Photography
I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based here in Richmond. I specialize in a romantic and classic style of photography. I'm a hybrid photographer, incorporating both digital and film photography into my work. Using both mediums allows me to create a collection of photographs that capture the essence of my clients as well as stir up emotion as they look through their photos for years to come.
At the core of my work is a love of memories...the importance of preserving moments in time forever. I imagine your grandchildren thumbing through old photographs from your wedding - the printed edges curled and faded under the wear of many hands flipping through them. Your job is to live in the moment, soak it all in. My job is to capture it all beautifully.

Kathryn is simply wonderful!
Kathryn was the perfect choice as our wedding photographer. From day 1, she was organized, responsive, and friendly; by far the easiest vendor I worked with! On the day of the wedding she was efficient and captured the exact style of our wedding that we wanted to portray. Our bride-and-groom portraits are phenomenal, the detail shots on-point, and our guests are ecstatic about all of the dancing photos she captured from the reception :) Kathryn’s style is elegant, refined, and fun – the perfect combination in wedding photography! We will cherish our photos forever, and we could not have been more pleased with how they all turned out.
Wedding and engagement photos review
Kathryn is super friendly, prompt, and talented. I love all of my wedding photos and what ended up being almost even better (or maybe why I loved so many of them) was that she made us feel super comfortable and calm in front of the camera. This is something I had no idea how much I would appreciate until the day came! The pictures on her site speak for themselves, you will love working with Kathryn.
Kathryn photographed my wedding in May 2017 and did a fabulous job! She was extremely responsive, organized, and professional. She perfectly captured every emotion and detail of our day - from the invitation and ring shots to the first look in the winery vines and our sparkler exit. She worked closely with me to accommodate all of the photos I wanted in our timeline, still allowing us to enjoy cocktail hour and more time with guests. Kathryn is great at directing the bride and groom so that "poses" look natural, and also capturing true candids. We did our engagement shoot with her before the wedding which helped us to become comfortable with each other and her behind the lens. I couldn't recommend Kathryn more - I am so happy I found her!
I cannot praise Kathryn enough for her incredible work. Our process with her began at my best friends wedding. She was so calm and cool during all of the madness that is wedding day. I admired the way she composed herself and spoke to our group. On that day, I told her that I would be contacting her for my own wedding and when the time came, I did! Our engagement photos were a breeze. Kathryn captured exactly what My fiancé and I wanted! In the wedding planning process, she kept me informed and she was incredibly organized. She knew every shot I wanted prior to the day of. She had a plan and executed it perfectly for our big day! When our timeline ran late, she was flexible and prepared to adjust our picture schedule, while still ensuring we had every shot we wanted (and my list was LONG). Kathryn’s photographs are beautiful and she is so careful in capturing your precious moments. In addition to her talent, she is one of the kindest women I’ve ever met and that was such a critical element on our big day. I can’t recomend Kathryn enough!
Love love love!
I don’t have enough positive words to use about Kathryn and her work! She is fantastic! She’s not going to be just your wedding photographer, she will become your friend and photographer for life! I recommend her to everyone I know! Her work is stunning and she truly captures every moment that you want to remember from your special day.
Kathryn was amazing from the start! We did an engagement shoot with her first and she immediately made us feel comfortable. We had both never taken professional photos before but she made it look like we had been doing it forever! On our wedding day she made me feel calm and everything went so smoothly, not to mention the pictures we received were gorgeous! She is the best and we would recommend her to anyone!
