Our Mission

 We believe in marriage as a union – a chosen commitment to stand by one another and go through life together with love, respect, and support. Your wedding should represent the both of you and your relationship together, which is why we put equal focus on both individuals on the wedding day. To us, no one individual is more important because the wedding would not be happening without the both of you committing to one another.

 We are LGBTQ friendly because we truly believe that love is love, all individuals should be treated equally and fairly, and that love deserves to be celebrated no matter the sex or gender identity of the people that love is shared between. We are also a secular vendor but love photographing both religious and nonreligious ceremonies. Your religious affiliation, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or anything else that makes your union unique does not have any effect on our choice or ability to work with you.

 If you would like to learn a little more about me, my journey into photography, or our business, then I would love to meet you for coffee (but I will be drinking tea as I hate the bitter taste of espresso) and discuss! I hope we could be a great fit and Alex and I look forward to being there with you two on your wedding day to celebrate the beautiful commitment you are making with one another!

 Hey there! I'm Ariel, the main photographer and sole editor here - believe us, you don't want Alex editing as he's red-green colorblind! I won't bore you with my 7-year wedding photography background since I'm sure you'd rather know a little bit more about me personally.

 I currently work at Duke as a Research Technician playing with viruses all day. I absolutely love my day job as I not only get to work on many different projects with different types of viruses, but also because I absolutely LOVE science and it allows me to put my biology degree to use! I am very passionate about it and if I get started on discussing developmental biology then I will probably never shut up. I like to describe myself as an outgoing introvert - I love alone time but I still have a bubbly and friendly personality. If you're into psychology and personality types, I am an ISFJ!

 If you would like to learn a little more about me, my journey into photography, or our business, then I would love to meet you for coffee (but I will be drinking tea as I hate the bitter taste of espresso) and discuss! I hope we could be a great fit and Alex and I look forward to being there with you two on your wedding day to celebrate the beautiful commitment you are making with one another!

Meet Alex

 Hey! Thanks a lot for checking out our website! I hope everything looks the way it's supposed to... I'm the web designer, second shooter, and all-around technical guru for Ariel Kaitlin Photography.

 At my day job, I work as an embedded firmware engineer in RTP and have a degree from NC State in electrical and computer engineering. I have close to 10 years of experience in web development (including graphic design) and have the technical know-how to be an effective and methodical second shooter.

 When I'm not working I like to tinker and build small electronic gadgets. I am a fan of home automation projects and, in general, I like utilizing technology to make our everyday lives more simple, safe, and satisfying. With that objective in mind, I strive to make the most out of every moment when I'm photographing in an effort to deliver photos that are elegant, memorable, and enjoyable to look at.
