What I care about the most is the real life experiences of my clients. After having photographed approximately 400 weddings, what I have come to value more than a collection of posed images (don't worry...we will have some of those, too!) is a collection of images that represent a day full of joy, real moments and good memories.
Over the past decade as a photographer, I've realized it's not uncommon for only half the couple to be more excited about photography than the other...my goal is to make you both happy.
I am that in between mix of traditional and modern, flexible and assertive, posed and unposed. I am constantly striving to create a photographic experience unique to who you are and photographed in a way that makes you feel the most comfortable.
My goal is for the photos to represent exactly who you are so that when you see the images you feel like yourselves in them. Let me absorb all the nerves and uncertainty that can sometimes come along with being photographed and create a collection of images that tell the story of you!

You've been scrolling social media and photography websites and you've finally landed here. You might be channeling a lot of thoughts and input right now : your parents, a friend/family member who has already been married, your fiance', and of course your own preferences for personality, style and aesthetic for your wedding photography! I hope that you are feeling a connection here and that we can take the next step toward working together!
Because I'm a perfectionist and people pleaser at my core; I want to you to want to work with me as much as I want to work with you! In my mind, that's a perfect fit!
If you are connecting with the work and are interested in a personal, custom experience...let's start the process.
Because client communication is such a big part of my process, once you reach out via the contact form I would love to set up a one-on-one phone or digital call! I want to know your wishes and your feelings regarding the photography of your wedding! You are welcome to include your fiance, parent(s), or wedding planner in this meeting! This is a great opportunity to discuss details and any questions
you may have.
It's not very often you come across an analytical creative, but if you are looking for one...here I am. Once you have chosen to work together, I am here for the journey. I am happy to make vendor recommendations, suggestions on timeline and work together with your other vendors to make the absolute best day possible for you. I want to make sure all your needs are met and that you are signing up to receive a stellar client experience.
I will always communicate with you regarding photo planning/ideas and photo lists before and during your wedding events. I truly believe this level of communication has a positive impact on your final images! I want to translate your memories into your most treasured photographs. My hope is that you look back on this experience with gratitude for choosing to work together and I will be grateful for you as well!
It's a daunting thing to choose a photographer for your wedding day, inviting someone into the most precious and intimate moments of your life. Catherine made that decision so easy! Not only is her work GORGEOUS, but her personality was like a breath of fresh air (even in the stressful moments!) She did all of the thinking for us! Our photos were perfect and I highly recommend working with her!
- Tess + Chris
catherine is organized, assertive, and on top
of every detail!
The reason I choose Catherine from was not from any recommendation; it was from the beauty in her photos and how well she was able to capture an emotion. Our images will keep me smiling for years to come. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend her! Not only is she talented but she has contagious energy that makes her truly enjoyable to work with.
-Amanda + Griff
Her images give me all the feels and I’m excited to have such amazing photos!
Our wedding planner initially referred Catherine to us. After seeing her simply amazing work, I immediately KNEW that I wanted to use her for our wedding. That was solidified after speaking with her over the phone and then of course meeting her the day of our event! We had an usually large wedding party and we love that she made everyone feel important! Catherine is an incredible person! We are so grateful for her work and I would highly recommend her over and over again.
- Katherine + Jonathan
she is genuine, professional and great to work with!
