Katie May Epps is an Indianapolis based photographer who has been shooting for over a decade. She took several photography classes at Ivy Tech in Indianapolis that helped her to find her own style and gain great technical skills in the field. She started working as a second camera/assistant for over a year with a local wedding photographer, before branching out to focus on her own photography. She loves to make people smile by capturing those perfect moments on film, and creating photographs that clients will look back at happily for years to come.
I love creating art! I strive to not only get those perfect shots, but also create something that really excites my clients in what they're getting back from me. I love being able to do something I enjoy that also makes someone else happy.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done families, engagements, weddings, event photography, senior portraits, and cosplay photography. I always try to make the clients feel super comfortable so they don't feel awkward and are more natural. I've been known to make quite a few people laugh throughout the shoot, and not only does it make for a more positive time, but it leads to great candids.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I head the photography department of Ohayocon, an anime convention in Ohio that attracts upwards of 20,000 attendees. One of my photographs was purchased by Arda Wigs, a Canadian wig and makeup company, for their commercial use.
A fun fact about this photographer
I've been a preschool teacher in Carmel, Indiana for around 5 years now, and I am as proud of my teaching work as I am my photography.
