katch studios ~boudoir

I’m very excited to announce that I’m going to be branching off from Cheryl to do some new work in boudoir photography here in Edmonton.  Don’t worry though, we’re still as strong a unit as ever in our wedding & lifestyle photography– I’ll just be doing some  fun stuff on the side too.  Alongside my favorite makeup artists and stylists, we’re going to be offering both private boudoir sessions, as well as boudoir marathon sessions.  This is a type of shoot that I think, if done well, can produce some of the most beautiful, sophisticated and engaging photography.  For more information, check out our new blog dedicated to just our boudoir work:

Thanks for your support and I hope you’ll visit the new blog often to check out what I’ll be up to!

michele dyson Ummm…..yah. You kinda, sorta ROCKED this session! Crazy about all 3, but I ADORE the last image:) You are gonna go farrrr with this new venture. Congrats!!

the khan family

This family holds a very special place in my heart.  Priya & Shawn were actually the very first wedding Cheryl and I officially shot as “Katch Studios”.  They took a wild chance on us way back when and to this day, their wedding photos are still some of our all time favorites.  They’ve now grown into a beautiful little family with the addition of their crazy-cute little boy Raiyan, and I was so happy to spend this lovely fall evening with them as we captured some awesome moments.  Over the years, we’ve become great friends and judging by the way my daughter Aaliyah loves to snuggle and paw at Raiyan, I’m suspecting we may have a little love connection to watch out for in the future 😉    Here’s some of my favorites from their shoot~

Are they not the most gorgeous family??

I love how you can see Shawn and Priya’s shadows in this picture of Raiyan~

Oh my~ Priya you look gorgeous!  Props to Susan Gill for the killer makeup job as usual!  Hit me up if you’d like to get her info.

Priya & Shawn~ You two still look just as amazing as you did on your wedding day, and it goes without saying that you’ve created a beautiful and sweet little man in Raiyan.  Love you all!!

Anita Omg Kat these pictures are amazing! Love them. Priya looks stunning.

Shaila Pillai Thank you Kat!! Wonderful shots!! Great perspective!! Love the mood the photos convey. Only you could capture Raiyan’s many faces so well. Love your natural style. To this grandma, Raiyan’s slide show is like short stories, each picture telling a story because of the context in which the background appear along with Raiyan’s expressions. Amazing how the dry fall leaves add so much life to the pictures. Splendid B&W shots, bringing an 1800 feel to them. Love the crystal clear focus of the eyes, esp. Priya’s. Kat, your passion for photography shows in each picture you take. These set of pictures must’ve brought you a great deal of satisfaction as a photographer. Congratulations!!

Priya What can I say Kat? You have once again managed to capture precious moments that we will cherish forever. We laughed many times tonight at every expression caught on camera by our little money! You have really made our night. Thank you so much for the beautiful slideshow! You are so talented, my friend! Shawn and I love, love, loved all of the pics! Thanks again, Kat!

Love, Shawn, Priya & Raiyan XOXO

Divya Priya, Shawn, AND MOST HANDSOME little man I have ever laid my eyes on, Raiyan: The three of you make the most beautiful family ever and I am sooo happy to call you my friends!
Kat, I too have loved your pictures since I saw your slideshow at Priya’s reception. There’s something about the way you capture each moment and from every photography blog I have seen so far, you are my favorite!! 😀

October 31, 2010 - 7:19 pm

Jessica Carson I still remember seeing the photos of Priya and Shawn’s ceremony during their reception slideshow: they took my breath away. I particularly remember the close-up of Priya’s eyes. You captured their love for each other then, and now the joy they share as their family grows.

elena & jack: engaged

These 2 lucky lovebirds are going to be having what’s sure to be an amazing destination wedding in Las Vegas (sooo jealous!) but lucky for me, they wanted to get some engagement pictures done here in Edmonton first.  I was delighted to do the honors and we had a really awesome evening together as we snapped some cool pictures all over downtown.  What I loved the most about getting to know them was how much they really seemed to love being around each other… I’m telling you, it was constant belly laughs, goofing around and warmth– they are each other’s best friends and you can just tell.  It’s shoots like this one that are just so effortless and fun that I can hardly really even call it “work”– Elena & Jack, I’d hang out with you two any time!  But maybe next time I won’t follow you around taking pictures of you in dirty alleys? haha!  Hope you all enjoy some of my favorites from their pretty summer evening shoot.

Love this shot!  You guys are beautiful.

K, can you guys be any cuter?  Don’t think so.

Then it was off to where it all began~ Red Star Pub.  This is where Elena & Jack first met.  Super cool place I’ve never been to before, let alone shot inside.  Loved it!

It was the perfect place to play around a little more with some off-camera flash.  Special thanks to my hubby Gurdeep for pulling “light duty”.  He’s really starting to let all these responsibilities get to his head 😉

Yummy light!  And of course, stunning couple.

Then, another location and outfit change later (man, were we ever efficient!!) we finished off the shoot at the Art Gallery of Edmonton.  Chic goes well with chic 😉

Elena & Jack~ I genuinely had such fabulous time hanging out with you guys and hope your wedding is the crazy fun time I think it’s going to be!

Lots of love,
