I want to tell your story

sonder - n. The realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own. 

One of the most important decisions you make during the wedding planning process is deciding on a photographer. Sonder is passionate about capturing vivid moments between real people. With so many photography options out there, it’s important to choose a photographer that edits in a style you love and someone you connect with from the start. It’s also imperative to find a legal company that protects your best interests, pays taxes, and has experience to offer you as a client.

Over the years, I've developed a romantic and whimsical editing style, with pink tones that compliment all skin types. Other photographers might edit more “moody” or “bright and airy.” Those style choices are up to you in who you pick!

What sets Sonder apart is my love for visual storytelling. That means I want to hear your story -- how you met, how he proposed, and what you’re most looking forward to about your wedding day. Snapping a photo is easy, but directing a client and leading them confidently throughout their shoot after understanding who they are -- that distinguishes good photographers from great photographers.  

So whether it’s splashing through waves in formalwear for “the photo” or chasing the light to get that golden hour glow, let’s adventure together! I'll bring my camera and take care of the rest.

MEET KATELYN HOLM

 

Hi! I'm Katelyn, owner and lead photographer at Sonder Photo. I started Sonder in 2018 after four years working as Katelyn Holm Photography. Why the name change? I love words, and the word “sonder” really encapsulates why I love photography.

I grew up in Willis, Texas, but now consider myself a city-dweller, living in Midtown, Houston. In 2014, I graduated from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism, and made almost all of my lifelong friends at that small, Central Texas university -- any Crusaders out there? My photography skills were orginally tailored to newspapers and have grown into a passion for visual storytelling, portraiture, and all things wedding.

When I’m not photographing your favorite moments, I'm probably writing alternative music news for Strife Magazine or blogging about ways to travel on a budget. I love exploring the unseen parts of big and small cities, concert-hopping, binge-watching Brooklyn 99 or The Office, and travelling both nationally and internationally. 

Let’s find a great coffee shop to meet at -- I have a caffeine bucketlist I would love to share with you.
