My name is Katie Chavarin and I'm a wedding, portrait and lifestyle photographer born and raised in the City of Stars also known as Los Angeles, California.
I photograph mundane things to give them life, way too many photos of my dogs (I promise they love it), palm trees galore and my food (sorry, not sorry).
But the things that give me life is when I get to photograph people in love, playful children, and creative entrepreneurs to help bring visuals to their businesses.
I first started photography when I was in the fourth grade when my dad gave me my first 35mm film point-and-shoot camera and fell in love with photography. I continued this passion for photography and studied Photojournalism in college and decided that documenting life was not only fun but a necessity and a privilege.
My mission is to create images of love in all forms; whether its with your partner, your family, your creativity or a love for yourself. Because all forms of love are magical reasons to celebrate.
