It's about more than hiring someone to hold a camera and snap a few pics. Wedding photography is about carefully crafting and capturing the moments of your big day in a way that beautifully tells the story of your love.

After photographing more than three hundred weddings over the last ten plus years, I've really come to value the unexpected, intimate moments that take place on a wedding day. 

The hug your mom gives you before you leave your dressing room. The tear that falls down his cheek when he sees you walking down the aisle. The way the two of you lean your heads together during the toasts. 

This day is about more than the flowers and the shoes you chose. It's about celebrating the start of a new legacy. It's an honor to play a small part in such a significant day and I hope you'll choose me to be a part of yours! 


everything you need to know about


don’t expect to find any AWKWARD PROM STYLE PHOTOS around here. 
I’ll jump right in and get to THE GOOD STUFF, the AUTHENTIC moments.

No career as a model required.
genuine SMILES as you dip your heads together and share a QUIET JOKE together, 
HANDS HELD tight because you never want to let go, 
carefully stolen KISSES as the SUN SETS just below the horizon.

 are you ready?

let’s CHAT



You've thoroughly combed through my website, blog and Instagram feed and you like what you see. So the next step is setting up a time to chat to make sure we're the perfect fit for one another.   

Grab a glass of bubbly, an espresso or your drink of choice and let’s chat!

the next step




Once your date is officially reserved, I'll send over a few goodies to help you prepare for the big day. I'm happy to serve as a resource for vendor recommendations, timeline guidance and more!

and now the fun begins!

the next step




Engagement sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. I’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos.

wedding PREP


I check in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else I should know about your big day.

I was immediately taken by Catie's work online. Her style is so classically beautiful, romantically artistic, and that of

Martha's weddings and Vogue caliber. She has a way with capturing candid moments well and knows how to seek the best lighting (handy device on hand)! In addition, she so patiently worked with us with our ever-changing and disappointing wedding plan changes due to the pandemic. Catie was so gracious throughout the process and it was a great relief to have a vendor we could count on to be there when our special day finally came! The day of our wedding, Catie guided us thorough glamourous poses, captured our vision and our special candid moments, and paid attention to the finer details i.e. making sure my hair was in place, veil etc. She was so naturally positive and joyful for us that day, it really made us feel special. I cannot recommend her enough! We received the highest compliments from many of our friends who said our wedding photos looked that of magazine work. Her work speaks for itself and on top of that, she is truly kind professional, highly organized, and an expert in her craft. As Ansel Adams once said, “A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.” Catie captured just that for us.
