About Vein and Vessel

Katie Forbis


Katie Forbis | St. Louis-based, available anywhere | What I love most about weddings are the people, the relationships, and the emotions - and that’s exactly what I strive to capture. I'm inspired by light, texture, emotion, movement, and shape. I lightly direct when needed, but when I do I keep it natural and easy. You won’t see me spending an excruciating amount of time posing people down to the inch. I shoot fluidly and I shoot a lot. My goal is to create beautiful images without over-stepping, over-directing, or wearing you out.

I take a documentary approach to photographing weddings. Instead of staging photos, I shoot events as they are unfolding, however that may look. I believe that all love is valid, and I photograph couples from all walks of life regardless of race, age, religion, or sexual orientation <3

    The beauty of Katie's photos speak for themselves--they are emotional, artistic, and eye-catching. But what you can't see in the photos is what an amazing person Katie is. She's exactly who you want to have around you on your wedding day. She is calm, easygoing, and confident, and her photos strike the perfect balance between artistic vision and candid spontaneity. It was amazing how she captured our day while still allowing us to be fully present with each other and our guests. We just can't recommend Vein&Vessel enough. - Nick and Norah
