meet Kate

make your day unforgettable

Hello! My name is Katherine Ellsasser Phelps the owner and photographer of Kate Phelps Photography! I come from the small town of Princeton, KY which has a direct effect on where my inspiration comes from. In Princeton, I learned a lot about the simple notion of making people smile. I strive to create moments where people feel like family, not only with a significant other or a friend, but with me as well! My small town style resonates with the fact that there is great beauty in simplicity, and my pictures seek to capture that. My business is creating lasting memories, all while developing a relationship with you to forever cement the happiest days of your life. Photography is my passion, and making you feel as if you were home with your loved ones is the experience I want to provide. As Andy Warhol once said, “The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.” So let's create these moments, one smile at a time.



OK Photography is one of the best in the area! Kate Phelps is one of the most amazing people I know. As a photographer, she works hard to create a fun and relaxed environment for her clients. From graduation pictures, to homecoming pictures, to engagements, family shoots, weddings, etc., she always puts her clients first and makes sure they are getting the BEST! To know her is to love her. 


Kate Phelps photography most definitely surpasses its name. My fiancé and I knew Kate Phelps was going to be our photographer the moment we met her. During our engagement session, she made the time exciting and effortless by capturing each moment perfectly! Kate is so talented I wouldn't want anyone else for our wedding day! KP Photography is the BEST!!!


Kate is fantastic! I have never had photos taken where I truly loved every single one! She captured our family perfectly, in a natural, candid way. She was fun to work with and welcomed our furbabies into our session, which we loved! She went above and beyond, and gave us access to our photos within 24 hours of taking them! We won’t go anywhere else!
