I am Kate Ensign. Owner of Ensign Photography, located in Ephrata, WA. I am up to traveling anywhere in the beautiful PNW and beyond.
First and foremost- I am a wife and mother to 3 beautiful children. My passion for photography runs deep in my very bones. It's always been a lifelong obsession for me but it truly began in 2011 when I purchased my first Canon, a Rebel T3i. I didn’t start to take it seriously as a profession until the birth of my children (and muses) were born. I now shoot with my trusty Canon 6D Mark II and 50mm and 85mm lenses.
I LOVE to document LOVE. Couples are my passion and I am proud to call myself a professional third wheel. I got married at 17 - still in high-school to the love of my life, Mark. We were called crazy (YUP), reckless, you name it! Now 13 years into it, I know that a marriage continues long after your wedding day as an amazing roller coaster journey, a life long commitment, A CHOICE. Choosing your spouse day in a day out. I want to capture photographs that will be framed on your mantle, in your hallway, inside your wallet, so that you always have those loved ones and those memories near. I want a little piece of my art to in some way, be there through your journey as you recollect with your grand kids, photographs of your engagement and wedding photos.
I want to get to know all my clients on a more personal level; hear your stories and capture the realness of you and your relationships. I promise to make you laugh and feel comfortable in front of my lense and capture a glimpse of your life's most precious moments with fresh perspective and a artistic eye.
