Meet Katie


My name is Katie Bonnema.

I am a 22 year old newlywed living in Grand Rapids, MI with my husband Zac and our dog Khloe. Anyone who knows me can tell you I love my coffee, good books, reclaimed furniture, perfect golden light and happy people.

I started taking an interest in photography in high school but I never thought about making a career out of it until I was in college and I was feeling totally at a loss with that to do with my life. I took a photography class my 2nd semester and after that I was totally hooked. In the almost 3 years since I have fallen so in love with photography. I love the real moments in between the poses, when people are just being themselves. That’s where you see the adoration of a husband as he looks at his wife, or the complete trust in a child’s eyes looking up at their parents. I love that. I do my best to capture who people are, not just how they look. When you book a session with me I will almost always try to get you to schedule it for the hour right before the sun goes down to get that perfect, golden light. It’s magical and creates the most beautiful images. I adore my clients and there is nothing better than getting to watch them grow through the months and years that I get to capture their families.

I love connecting with new people so leave a comment or shoot me an email and let me know you were here. I’m so glad you’ve found yourself here visiting my little site, I hope you come back again!
