Hired to cover 90 events to date.

Trusted by brands ranging from Redfin to Veuve Clicquot, Kathleen Sheffer is an experienced photographer in the San Francisco Bay Area.

In my three years working as a professional event photographer, I’ve learned to see events and spaces from different perspectives. I notice details. I capture candid emotion. Strung together, my images tell a story about your event that you can share for years to come.

Through photography, I tell stories of relationships, company culture, new beginnings, and growth.

But I try not to take myself too seriously. Photography is super fun for me, and it should be fun for you to have me around.

So, here’s a little about me: I love hiking, dogs, coffee, board games, and keyboard shortcuts (especially when they make editing faster). 

I’m an introvert, but I love being around people (I’m still trying to understand this myself). I do not love to be the center of attention. Honestly, I like to eavesdrop and people-watch. Event photography is probably the most appropriate application of that skill.

My clients tell me I somehow seem to be everywhere at once without disrupting the action. Don’t get me wrong — I can shout the rowdiest crowd into group photo formation (even if they don’t speak English — true story).
