gumgirl was started by Kathy Miller, an award-winning photographer, who has shot for magazines such as San Francisco, TIME, Details, Elle Girl, Fast Company, and Wired. In addition to her work shooting portraits and photo-essays for magazines, she is known for lifestyle shots, which have appeared in several books and are handled by Getty Images.

Joining her is her cousin and neighbor Erin Katgely, who also studied photography at the SF Art Institute. Erin has shot weddings for 10 years and has also worked as a stylist (her beautiful sense of style can be seen at her San Francisco restaurant, Chez Spencer).

Weddings are obviously a special day. Whether in a barn or on a Caribbean beach, you are likely to be surrounded by your families and best friends and there are a million things going on. Kathy and Erin are there to capture those million things, as well as the feeling of the day. But they are definitely not there to direct the wedding, telling you when to cut garters and throw cakes. Yet documenting a wedding like a photojournalist can also miss the beauty and magic. So gumgirl combines style and documentary to show your day at its best.
