Hey y’all! I’m Kate, the proud face behind Kate Taramykin Studios. I’m a New Jersey-born, Florida-raised girl who thrives off of sweet tea, yoga, and wooden-wick candles. Most days you’ll find me either at school (I double as a business owner + college kid, which is a pretty sweet deal if you ask me), wandering around Disney World, or at home, snuggled up with my cats (I’m a total homebody). I’ve been a creative mind since birth (I kid you not, I started writing poems when I was 2 years old), so it’s really no wonder that I’ve gotten myself into such a creative industry.

I believe in strongly in chasing your dreams. I knew at the young age of 14 that I wanted to be a photographer when I grew up, but I very quickly decided that I was already as “grown up” as I needed to be. So I became obsessed, spent all my time doing research and taking courses, and within a year, I had opened my business. Over the years, it has grown into so much more than I ever could’ve imagined, and my dreams & goals now are way bigger than I even knew they could be! Y’all, I cannot wait to see where this journey takes me.

My job means the entire world to me. I do firmly believe that God has a calling for each of us, and I believe this is mine – to serve those around me by allowing them to preserve their most precious moments in a truly timeless manner. I am so incredibly blessed to be welcomed into the lives of so many beautiful people and to be able to witness & capture such special moments in their lives. I thank God every day for this ability and opportunity, from the bottom of my heart.

If you think we’d be friends (and I so hope we will be!), send me a message using the Contact page above. I can’t wait to hear from you!

THE THINGS THAT MATTER MOST

BECAUSE THESE MOMENTS MATTER.

I truly believe that every single moment we have here on this earth is a gift. I believe that this life is a crazy, beautiful, magnificent journey, and every little part of it is meaningful. Every moment is unique and irreplaceable. How could you not celebrate that?

Photographs are amazing – they take those small moments, ones we may not have even noticed otherwise – and preserve them forever. This is why I do what I do, y’all. It’s not about money or success. It’s about capturing your life’s most precious moments in a beautiful, artistic way so that you and your loved ones can cherish and remember them forever.

ABOUT KTS

I believe moments should be captured. Even the small ones.

I really do feel that I have one of the best jobs in the world. As a photographer, I get to step into people’s lives (even if for just a short period of time) and help preserve their story in our world’s history. How freaking cool is that??

I am a storyteller, here to help you capture and share the stories of some of the biggest moments in your life. I aim to capture each of those moments absolutely timelessly, which is a large part of the reason why I’ve chosen to shoot film. There is no medium, no style or trend, that has stood the test of time better than film. There is also nothing that inspires me, personally, more than the softness and depth of film photography.

 

I aim to create more than just photographs – I aim to create memories.

Yes, these days will likely be memorable no matter what (it’s not every day you get to be in front of a camera, now is it?), but the experience you have during the time we’re together is the most important part of it all, in my opinion. When you look back at your photos, you won’t just remember the day as a whole; you’ll remember the exact moment that particular photo was taken. Trust me on that one! I’ve had my photo taken so many times, and each time I look back, I remember so much about each photograph individually. It’s honestly such a cool process, and I’m so blessed to be able to bring that feeling to the hearts & homes of others!

Let’s be real, y’all: how you feel, what you’re thinking, it all plays into the memories you take away. I strive to make your experience as wonderful as possible, from the first messages to the final delivery. Y’all mean the world to me, and I want to make you feel that! I want you to look back at your photos and remember a laid back, stress-free experience filled with laughter, joy, and lots of good conversation. If this sounds like the experience for you, let’s chat! I can’t wait to hear from you!
