Catherine Ann Photography was the best decision I made for my wedding day (other than the groom ;-) )!!! Katie is such a talented photographer and her photos are so light, bright, and fun. Her and Jay as a team are amazing and so fun to work with. I fell in love with her pictures the moment I saw them and knew she had to be my photographer right then, but once I met her she was even better than I could've hoped for! She is so sweet and personable. During our engagement session she talked us through poses and even showed us exactly what to do to make our pictures perfect. On my wedding day I was a ball of nerves and the moment Katie walked in I felt more at ease thanks to her professionalism, experience, and kind words. In spite of having to work around rain, my wedding day went smooth and everything we wanted still got captured thanks to her. My wedding pictures are a dream (you would never know it was rainy from the pictures!) and I don't even know how to pick favorites because they're all too good! I highly recommend her and Jay and would hire them again in a heartbeat!Sent on 04/03/2018

Katie and Jay are simply amazing!
I knew I wanted to work with Katie from the minute I saw her work. Every single photo she takes is simply beautiful.Sent on 06/05/2019
Throughout the wedding planning process, Katie answered every question we had so quickly and was able to refer us to a few of the incredible vendors we ended up selecting. We were planning from out-of-state, so Katie’s suggestions for vendors and shooting locations were especially helpful!
Katie is such a pro. She takes time to get to know her couples before the wedding with very specific questions and makes sure to be super prepared for the day-of by consulting with you on the shots that are important to you! She also provided us with a detailed timeline which made everything so easy going into the day!
We were already so impressed with Katie before the wedding, but when our wedding day came, we were just blown away. Beyond being the picture of professionalism, Katie and Jay were both incredibly friendly and made everyone feel so comfortable. They were flies on the wall while also being amazing guides and directors for the day. They worked quickly and made everyone feel so comfortable in front of the camera. We have a huge family and had a pretty big wedding party, but Katie and Jay were able to work with everyone seamlessly and capture everything. As a bride who was all over the place, I can’t tell you wonderful it was to have complete trust in our photographers and not have to worry about anything other than marrying my husband! They read the room perfectly and were able to capture photos of every guest and every important moment, whether it was an obvious moment at the altar or a discreet look between two people.
When our photos came back, I was stunned!!! They captured everything so perfectly and beautifully. You can’t even tell that it was a rainy day! Our entire family feels so lucky to have these photos for the rest of our lives to look back on. Each photo is incredibly well-lit, colorful, bright, airy, and most-importantly, perfectly captures the pure joy surrounding the wedding!!! These photos already mean the world to us and we feel so grateful to have them to remember and look back on our perfect day.
I’m simply in awe of Katie and Jay’s talent. We can’t recommend her and her team enough!!

Catherine Ann Photography!
When our wedding planner asked us which wedding vendor we thought would be the most important to us on our wedding day, I answered “photography!” straight away! People say that your wedding day is a whirlwind, and it’s so true! After all of the cake has been eaten and the sparklers have burnt out, your wedding photos are left to remind you of all the love, joy, and excitement you and your spouse shared with your family and friends!Sent on 06/07/2019
Needless to say, I browsed a lot of photography portfolios, and I instantly fell in love with Catherine Ann Photography! Katie’s photos are timeless and beautiful! Charleston is like a fairytale, and I wanted to find a photographer who could capture both the natural beauty of our venue and the joy we felt on our wedding day. To say Katie and Jay delivered would be an understatement! When we received our wedding album, we were overjoyed! They captured every moment and detail I could have ever wanted in the most beautiful way. Being able to look back, relive all of those wonderful moments, and even see all the beautiful details I was too overwhelmed to notice is absolutely invaluable to me!
Also, I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that I’ve always felt a bit awkward and uncomfortable in front of the camera, but Katie and Jay made the whole process so easy! We met for the first time at our engagement session, and with Katie’s guidance, my nerves quickly melted away! They are both so sweet and made us feel so comfortable! Katie really took the time before our wedding to get to know us so that by the time our wedding day came, I felt like we were posing in front of friends!
I absolutely could not be more grateful for Katie and Jay!! The photos they took for us are truly a priceless gift that will last a lifetime! I am so thankful that we chose Catherine Ann Photography to play this important role on our big day, and I would absolutely recommend them to everyone I know!!!
Very Professional and Highly Recommended.
We just did the flowers for my good friend's wedding and got to meet Catherine Ann and her amazing crew! They were so sweet and accommodating to us as we needed to move a lot of our flowers around. I definitely recommend Catherine Ann Photography and really hope that we get to work together again in the future :)
