    Katie is fantastic! Her photos are beautiful and they captured the day better than I could have hoped. Our guests even commented on how much they enjoyed her. To have a photographer who adds humor and joy to the celebration was a unique gift.

    If there is one thing I am don't like, it's getting my picture taken. It is one of the most uncomfortable things there is. However at Lampshade studio, Katie helps you feel comfortable, and she turns getting your picture taken into a fun time. She also makes the best Senior/Wedding announcements! Getting your picture taken at lampshade is always a great experience and they always get the shot you are looking for!
