THE HEART BEHIND OUR WORK

I know you love the subtleties; those brief touches or quick glances across the room from him. Maybe that’s how your story began, yours and his, in those moments that will weave their way through every second of your wedding day.

On that day, everything will change. You’ll walk towards him gracefully, gently touching his elbow and he’ll pull you in like he always does. That pause, that beautiful moment just before he embraces you, tells a story. The look on your face holds your history together. In that moment, history is happening, and I don’t want you to forget it.

As he pulls you in to kiss your cheek, another miracle is happening. The imperfections of two people fade away and all that is left is the purity of love.

On that day, you will stand before your dearest friends and promise to choose each other, forever. There will be a million divine moments of laughter that day, brief moments that will fade away as quickly as they came. As you are living them, I will keep them, tucked away behind a lens that is looking at your story through legacy.

You were meant to be with him, and history will be marked by those moments. I want to hold each one for you because one day, you’ll walk down the halls of the home you raised your children in. You’ll pass the hallway decorated with your story, with the subtle moments of that day that changed everything.

Each image is an invitation to relive the feelings of being his bride and you’ll take it. You’ll feel the way you did, and you’ll be able to tell your grandchildren your story of being his wife that began on that day. They will have watched you live your love story their entire lives and they’ll beg you to tell them the story again. And you will because you can still remember the feeling of touching his elbow, and the feeling of him pulling you in close, and the pause just before he whispered,

“I completely and utterly adore you.”

"Catie is absolutely incredible. Not only is she the nicest person ever, but she gave us the most beautiful portraits for both our engagement session and our wedding. There were so many candid moments that she captured that I am so happy to have forever. She is professional, responds quickly, and is just awesome to be around. Working with her was so smooth, which is such a blessing because photography is a huge deal for a bride. I would highly highly recommend choosing Catie as your wedding photographer!"

"From the moment we met Catie we knew…she would be a forever friend! Not only is she extremely talented, creative, and professional, but she is thoughtful, funny, patient, and brings out the best in you for your photos. Her attention to detail and passion for photography is something that we noticed right away and is evident in all of her photos. Catie made each moment a memorable one, which we are so grateful for, and we couldn't have asked for a better person to capture our engagement and wedding. Truth be told, she was kind enough to act as our witness for our wedding at City Hall (have to take care of paperwork before a destination wedding). Now, because of her sweet gesture, she will always have a special place in our hearts."

"People warn you all the time that wedding planning is stressful, but you know what, the day of can be pretty stressful too - getting ready, hustling from place to place, etc. Working with Catie was the EASIEST, more stress-LESS thing that day. Echoing what everyone else has said, Catie is a true sweetheart. Very warm, very kind, and VERY professional, she quelled all my anxiety storms leading up to the wedding by answering all my inane emails within the day (if not within a couple hours) and providing me with info and context. I knew those were promising signs, but I think the day of is when she truly shined. Catie was prompt, ensured we got the photos we wanted, made sure we stayed on schedule, while remaining patient and positive the ENTIRE time!!! And the final product? They're just astounding. It's so hard to choose favorites... even between categories! Just so many "awww" moments from a day that whizzes by :) I really can't say enough nice things about Catie. Seriously, do yourself a favor: book her, cross it off your never-ending list of things to do, and pat yourself on the back for a job well done! You can thank me, and all the other posters, later!!"

"Catie is a complete joy! I think aside from her talent, her contagious smile is what makes her clients so comfortable and makes the photos turn out beautifully. Catie was there from beginning to end on our special day and was incredibly conscious of making sure she captured all of the special moments without being intrusive. A couple stand-out moments for me: After we were married we were taking couple portraits together. My husband and I are not people who get photos taken a lot, and I think Catie worked us through that perfectly. She said to Andrew, "Tell Michaela what you were thinking when you first saw her." He whispered in my ear and now when I look at the photo Catie snapped I can remember that moment perfectly. Second, we walked into our reception and we opted for a sweetheart table. When we sat down we were greeted with a photo Catie had taken less than an hour ago, in a beautiful silver frame. There is a personal connection Catie has to this momento from her own family and it is something I will cherish forever. I cannot recommend her enough and I am sure from your first meeting you will understand all of the positive reviews."

"I would give Catie 6 stars if I could - she is that great! My fiancé and I planned a vacation to San Francisco and my fiancé (then boyfriend) planned to propose to me on this trip. He contacted Catie to capture the moment by the Golden Gate Bridge when he popped the question. On this particular day, it was foggy, dark, and COLD! But, Catie did an absolutely amazing job and the pictures turned out better than I could ever imagine. Not only were the pictures amazing but I feel like I gained a friend because she is just the sweetest and we have kept in contact ever since :) We love her so much that we plan on flying her out to Charleston, South Carolina to photograph our wedding! We wouldn’t want or trust anyone else. She is truly so sweet, so genuine, so talented, and such a pleasure to work with. Booking her for your wedding is the best decision you can make!"

"When I first met the photographer (CLP), I immediately fell in love with her work. I met her at a wedding in San Diego (as a wedding coordinator) and I could not believe how amazing she was with the bride and groom. She has a very chipper and positive attitude, stays on task with the timeline, gets in as many photos as possible (even beyond the photo list), and has a very consistent style to her work. She had great patience to work with us and we love her for that. As a coordinator, I've seen so many beautiful photos, but I sincerely gravitate to CLP's work! I even made it clear to her and my friends that she would be my photographer for my wedding. When I got engaged, the first thing my now-husband asked, "Who do you want as our photographer??" I told him, "Catherine Leanne!" Even after he searched other photographers who have done multiple weddings at the venue, we kept coming back to CLP's work. After the wedding, I had this nervous excitement to see a tag on my Instagram. Behold, it was a picture of me and my husband... And it was jaw-dropping amazing!

I say... If you could have a photographer that nails your day perfectly and continues to amaze you with their work over and over again, GO WITH CLP! Worth every penny spent."
