We are Kate & Karl Kloos, and we fell in love with the idea of being wedding photographers almost as instantly as we fell in love with each other. We met in college where we both were studying photography, and the attraction was instant. Over the past five years we’ve gone from students with a dream, to photographers who are lucky to celebrate every weekend with the most amazing people, in the most amazing places. It has been a whirlwind of adventure and we are so freakin’ thankful for each and every one of our couples who help make our dream come true! We love getting to know our couples as friends, and we take that honor seriously.

We currently live in the Como Park neighborhood of Saint Paul, Minnesota with our crazy little cat, Pickle. We’re usually out shooting or in front of a computer somewhere, but when we are off the clock, you’ll find us exploring new places, working in our gardens, trying out new breweries, or spending some quality time with our amazing families.  You can follow along with our wedding escapades: @tandemtree.


Kate and Karl combine professionalism with a clear passion for photography. Simply stated - Kate and Karl exceeded all expectations. Our photos were the most important aspect of our wedding day and we never once worried about how they would turn out. You will not, even for a moment, regret using Tandem Tree.

From the first moment my husband and I met Kate and Karl, we knew these were people not only we wanted to photograph our wedding but to have as friends. I cannot say enough good words about these two so chose them as your photographers and you'll find out why they're the best!

Tandem Tree Photography is just simply the best at what they do! I continued to be impressed by their work and professionalism throughout the entire process, plus they are so energetic and fun to work with! They put tremendous effort into the little details of their work, trust me you will be blown away!

Working with Kate and Karl was so much fun! They are very detailed, full of awesome ideas, and extremely interactive. They made us very comfortable in front of the camera. I can not thank them enough for all of their hard work and being apart of our special day. I highly recommend Tandem Tree!

These two are unbelievable. My (now) husband and I met them after finding them on the internet and from the moment we did, we were sold. They are comfortable with who they are as people and they make you feel comfortable from the moment you sit down together. If you can, book these two!

- Sarah + Justin -

I honestly can't say enough about how incredible Kate & Karl are at what they do. Their attention to detail kept our wedding day perfectly on schedule, and I can't even count the number of guests who came to us with comments on how much they adored Kate & Karl. Booking them is the best decision we made for our wedding, hands down.

Your wedding photos will be one of the few physical things from your day that will last for years. Our couples appreciate the art of photography and make it one of the highest priorities for their day. In our minds, the perfect wedding photography is genuine and captures not only your day as it unfolds naturally, but also who you are – your story. Good photography should go beyond the visual element to provoke an emotional response that reminds you of how you felt that day.

We love to seize every expected and unexpected sweet moment, all while making sure to step just outside the lines of convention. If you feel that you connect with us and our work, we would love to buy you a coffee, hear your love story, and talk all about your plans for the big day!
