Happy Out Photography | Pittsburgh, PA

Meet the Dream Team


established in 2014







Hello Bride-to-be and welcome! This is such an exciting time for you! I’m Katie and I started this crazy journey a few years ago and called it Happy Out Photography!

I’m so excited that you found us and because we believe that getting to know our clients is the #1 way to ensure an awesome experience.  I’d love to tell you a little about me! Here are a few things you should know! 

  • Couples in love are my favorite to photograph

  • I prefer light, bright, candid, laughing, posed, true, and stunning images to show off your personalities

  • I never stop learning and trying new techniques

  • Creative nighttime photos are some of our favorites of the wedding day, and it's fun to sneak off to look back at the day

  • I'd rather be wearing tennis shoes and gym attire, but enjoy dressing up every once in awhile (and for every wedding)

  • I have our 2 sweet rescue pups (& mascots) who sometimes drive me crazy, but I love them to pieces

  • These pups also have their own instagram, talk about spoiled!

  • I have always had the wanderlust bug, and dream of traveling all over the US and many other areas of the world

  • I was born and raised in Pittsburgh and spent nearly 20 years devoted to soccer and my teammates

  • You could consider me pretty outgoing and will make a fool out of myself so you can have some great laughs and enjoy yourselves

  • I value family and loyalty and strive to be a better person each day and to make those around me happier

  • I can't deny our love of Starbucks + impromptu coffee dates

  • I LOVE meeting our new #hopbrides and hearing your love story and how we can capture that beautifully
