I'm Katie!


I've had a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember. I saved up for my first point-and-shoot at the age of 12 and instantly fell in love with capturing a person in a photograph (to the dismay of my big brother). Years of planned out "friend shoots" passed before I really considered making this a profession. While going to school in California, I met so many inspiring creatives that encouraged me to seriously pursue it. Since starting my business in 2016, it's been nothing but a dream. I love every part of being a photographer, except maybe the headaches that accompany long days of starting at my computer screen while editing.

It always feels weird to introduce myself over the internet, because if I saw you in person I'd probably just want to give you a big hug, but here goes!


Formally known as Katie Beiler, I am actually now Katie Schlabach! (pronounced SHLAY-BAW). I'll be keeping Beiler in my business name for a bit so you can all still find me!


I'm a follower of Jesus Christ and I am passionate about the Gospel!


I am a born and raised Floridian. Even though I love to complain about the heat and the lack of seasons, it will always be home.

My better half


Meet Cameron, the better side of me.


We got married in August 2018 on top of Sunset Rock in Chattanooga with only our parents in attendance (check out our wedding video here) and our life has been a whirlwind ever since! We spent the first two years of our married life in Fort Lauderdale, where Cam served as a worship leader for our church's youth group. Now, we reside in Sarasota to be closer to my side of our family as we start our own family.
