A bit about me…

Meet Katrina

For as long as I can remember, I have been mixing life with photography – a passion that comes from a deep desire to document genuine moments in life and capture those fleeting seconds for a lifetime. Moments like these are pure with emotion and hold life as it was in that instant. Nothing is more special than keeping a memory alive with a photograph.

I come from a large family of 7 (that has grown into 23), so I have always been surrounded with so much love and caring. As a logger’s daughter from Michigan, my dad instilled my work ethic: dreams don’t work unless you do, always be kind and compassionate, and keep pushing forward.

I work hard every day to make my dreams come true as an entrepreneur who is living out my passion, photographing you and your loved ones! I admire the natural beauty of all people and strive to convey this sentiment in my work, focusing on your genuine interactions and capturing authenticity in your story.

I hold a degree in professional photography from Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs, CO. I started my professional photography career in 2009, as the primary photographer shooting weddings and events throughout Glenwood Springs and the Roaring Fork Valley. I have since evolved my brand and business, expanding to family portrait sessions, corporate photography, senior photos, maternity shoots, and more.

Windfirm Photography represents my strong roots, growing up in a rural area of Michigan with my family of loggers, as much as it does my passion for photography in the beautiful outdoor spaces in and around the mountains of Glenwood Springs. ‘Windfirm’ is a logging term, referring to trees that are able to withstand strong winds, much like how photography, and the genuine emotion that a good photo captures, can withstand the test of time.

I love photographing all types and sizes of weddings and engagements, even if your big day is a smaller, micro wedding. I believe every couple deserves to have their happiest moments captured in photos they can share for years. Love is love, and it’s my distinct pleasure to celebrate all of it!

My Style

My style is photojournalistic and genuine – focusing on natural moments for each photo, but also blending in artistic elements. The focus is always on capturing the subject in a real and honest way, while highlighting their story with a touch of soft light. I limit my editing and put forth most of the work behind the camera, ensuring the photos will be real, genuine, and uniquely about you.

Creative, easy to work with, accommodating, fresh, fairly priced and hard working. They have the right equipment and are flexible with their time. We've enjoyed getting to know them professionally and would highly recommend them.

Katrina was great to work with! She captured our wedding at the Redstone Inn and was very responsive and worked with us beforehand to make sure she captured all the details we wanted. The pictures turned out great! It'll be great to relive these special memories from her great work. Thanks, guys!
