behind take heart photo



Photographing since 2005, Katie Marentes is the face behind take heart photo. She lives and works out of North Carolina but originated from a magical small town in South Georgia, her background is in documentary + fine art photography with a BFA from Savannah College of Arts & Design. She has a huge heart for the great outdoors, animals, the Avett Brothers, and photos that capture spontaneous, honest emotion. 

The reason I do what I do always circles back to a God given desire to cheer, strengthen, and comfort those around me. I wish for the work I do through take heart photo  to be a source of joy and a reminder to my subjects of all that is good in the their world. I would be honored to help tell you story!
