Meet Katy

Hi there! I’m Katy, and I’m the heart and soul of Icarus Photography. I provide custom wedding, portrait and lifestyle photography to Bloomington and south-central Indiana with both in-studio and on-location photographic services.

I strive to make timeless, high-quality photographs that will be treasured by you and yours forever. From maternity shoots to sweet newborns, modern high-school seniors and fairy-tale weddings, I want to tell the unique story of your family’s beginning, middle and happily-ever-after.

I graduated from Indiana University in 2010 with a BA in Journalism, specializing in photojournalism, and with minors in Studio Art and Art History. I completed an intensive photography program in Paris, France, as well as a photojournalism internship with the Bloomington Herald-Times during my time at IU. My work has appeared in the New York Post, Bloom Magazine, American Motorcyclist Magazine, the Washington Times-Herald, Bloomington Herald-Times, on, and exhibited locally in Gallery Walk Bloomington twice.

I was named a Top Rated Local Photographer in Indiana (#4 in 2019) and Top Rated Local Business in Indiana (#78 in 2019), and was named one of the best lifestyle photographers in the Indianapolis area by Peerspace in 2019.

I’m the mother of a sweet, kind and super smart eight-year-old little girl named Sagan, and married to my husband David, a talented actor and director in the Bloomington theater community. They both inspire me to be creative in new and wonderful ways every day. Art makes my heart happy, and photography is my creative outlet of choice. I truly love my job.

Each year, I take on several volunteer projects that are close to my heart. Some of these include Project Middleway, Habitat for Humanity Women Build and an annual fundraiser for the ACLU.

All the best,
