Western PA wedding & portrait photographer

for life's biggest moments

Kate is a miracle worker and magician of all things camerawork. She has an open effortlessness about her, instilling in her lucky models a true sense of trust and ease. During our session with 9 humans and 3 dogs, Kate enthusiastically brought her flawless vision to life, resulting in the kind of intimacy most photographers simply can’t convey through their work. I can’t recommend Kate highly enough; her distinctive brilliance will add an element of warm familiarity to your photos. You’ll be disappointed you didn’t find her sooner! - Jamie K.


The photographer behind the lens

Hey there!

I’m Kate Marodi! This is Buddy, the Marodi Media mascot and #1 good boi.

I'm a dog-lover and photographer. I shoot lots of weddings, and also find big joy in documenting your everyday moments, including that one family session where the kid cried for about 90% of it, and I *still* delivered over 70 shots…Mom was very impressed!

Have you ever been at a crowded house party, and out of all the people in the room, the dog sits next to you? That’s how I feel when folks hire me: Chosen. Trusted. Most likely to provide comfort during an unexpected thunderstorm.

about me

I cannot say enough about Kate, the owner of Marodi Media. She is kind, flexible, easy to work with, and answered every question I had! She spent all day with us (literally until midnight) capturing our wedding! I gave her a list of photos that we wanted and she made sure to snap them all and then some. She made a point to take photos of all the guests, too. The package we chose included a second photographer and a physical photo album as a keepsake. The album is so beautiful. Obviously we were, but all of our family and friends were also so impressed with her work. She finished our photos in just over a month after our wedding! Thanks to Kate, we will always have these lovely photos as memories!

Kate is the best! She made us feel comfortable and posed us in ways that felt very natural. If you want pictures with your pets you have to use Marodi Media. Kate is fantastic with our pup and the results are amazing. I can’t recommend her enough!

Kate was a great photographer to work with! I received my photos back in a timely manner and she included previews before the whole set came out. She had many different posses for us to do that we loved. Kate was very personable and welcoming in our session. I look forward to working with her in the future!
