A little about me...


The Basics

I am a portrait and event photographer based in Charlotte, NC. I have been learning and perfecting my photography for the past 10+ years, and am full of knowledge and ideas I would love to share with you! 

My Experience

Sometimes I think I was born with a camera in my hand! In reality, I began studying film photography in high school. (They didn't make digital cameras then, but shhh... I'm still young!) I immediately fell in love, and continued my craft through college while not studying photography, I was taking photos at every chance! After the college years I made the transition to digital, knowing this was the career for me! And boy did I work... taking every paid gig that I could find including plenty of unpaid ones! I shot graduations, night clubs, preschools, friends, families, bands, headshots, restaurants, events, models, etc... (I seriously feel like I have shot everything!)  I was fortunate to do freelance work with some of the best photographers and companies in Charlotte fine tuning my style and technique. All the hard work paid off with the opening of Kate Moore Studios, LLC in January of 2016.  Here we take a consultative approach to your photography needs offering you the best in client service with the training and expertise to back it up!

A Style to Fit You

Intimate. Creative. Eclectic. Dramatic. Warm. Personal. Natural.

These are just a few of the words that clients and colleagues have used to describe my work and style. My goal is to make you feel at ease when I am around, whether it is your annual family photo or the charity gala you have been working on all year! The goal is for you to not just enjoy the finished product, but the memory that is created through the experience! These are the moments you want to remember, the ones you want captured, and I am there to make that happen!

What's in my bag?

Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 60D, Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II, Canon 50mm f/1.8 II, Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC Art Lens for Canon, Canon 580EX Speedlite; Other items: Diffuser, Little reflector, Extra batteries, memory cards, business cards, lens hoods, cleaning cloths, and my favorite little creator the Amlong Crystal Prism

On a personal note... 

I am a business owner, photographer, mom (dog and human),wife, visionary, artist, and activist. I also happen to be a perfectionist A-type personailty who never sleeps, and can sometimes be a bit neurotic! My motto in life is that everything happens for a reason, (the good, bad, and in between). As all experiences shape us into the people we become, and I value all that I can possibly take in! When I am not working family is my top priority, hiking, playing games, exploring Charlotte, and volunteering in our local community! It brings us closer as a family and offers value to our lives! We never stop! (Anyone with a 6 year old knows the feeling!)
