About by Kathryn Cooper Weddings || Unique, Beautiful, and Quirky Destination Wedding Photographer




I capture unique, beautiful, and offbeat celebrations all around the world. My clients lean towards the nontraditional: They don't want your average, run-of-the-mill day, and prioritize joyful, adventure-driven photos over regular ol' poses. I'm a photojournalist who fancies a lot of creativity mixed in, and people say my style is fun and one-of-a-kind! So whether you're getting married in New York, California, the Caribbean, or India, I'd love be there to capture the most wonderful and unique moments of your wedding, small or large.





I take photos that tell your unique story, and not the cookie-cutter wedding shots you see every day. For my awesome clients--who typically come to me because they're nontraditional or want something a wee bit different--average photos just won't suffice. I get to know you--sometimes over a period of years, and sometimes just through emails and such--and I get to understand your personalities, your style, your body language. I get what works for you and what doesn't, and shoot every wedding in a unique way. It requires a lot more creativity on my part, and a lot more post production, but in the end, I take pride in delivering something that makes my work stand out from most everyone else. The shots you receive represent you and your day, and you'll never see me do those exact same shots at another wedding. 


Pricing for 2019 starts at $900 for small elopements. Standard weddings start at $2850, or $2000 for smaller packages--and I do custom pricing for unique engagement sessions and nontraditional, multi-day celebrations that include an adventure session. Once you've contacted me with your wedding date and details, I'll send you my PDF of packages. 


I'm LGBTQ friendly, have photographed couples in helicopters and under water, and am always up for a wedding adventure.  The more adventuresome you want to get (Going on a safari in Kenya--which I just did in winter 2019? Want your engagement photos on a roller coaster in Florida? Eager to hike to ice caves in Iceland?), the more I'll admire you for it!





I'm a full-time photographer based in New York and California. I fly for work every few weeks and shoot all over the world, and have lived on three different continents. In winter 2019, I spent two months photographing around Africa--so I'm no stranger to adventure. Scuba diving, cooking, cliff jumping, and laughing too loudly are just a few of my favorite activities.
