Catherine was a wonderful photographer to have at our wedding. We had our wedding and reception outdoors on a sunny day surrounded by tons of trees which every photographer knows creates some challenges from a photography standpoint. This was not issue for Catherine, she worked dynamically with the given environment and captured every photo for what it was worth. She was able to capture the full emotion of all the candid moments and framed all the posed photography fantastically! She was also very fun and easy to work with, everyone felt natural and comfortable around her and vice-versa. I would highly recommend Catherine for anyones wedding or any other event

Professional, supportive and incredibly talented
Our wedding was comprised of a variety of outspoken characters you could say and some of the mothers and grandparents had different visions for the photography and weren't shy to make their opinions known. I tried to pull them back in a bit so as to not overwhelm any vendors but Catherine handled it all with grace and seriously impressed even some of the pickiest of family members. Thank you so much for your patience and attention to detail, we can't wait to get our pictures back! Thanks for making our day such a dream and taking the worry out of the photos!

She calmed my nerves and did a wonderful job!
I am a worrier in general so naturally I had a few concerns regarding my wedding and how the photos would come out (specifically about the extremely low light in our venue) but Catherine was able to reassure me and sure enough when I got my gallery it was PERFECT!! Thank you Catherine for addressing each of concerns and doing a stellar job, we are so happy with our photographs!

Catherine is an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !! I very much appreciate her positive enthusiastic energy. Catherine is such a breath of fresh air. I have worked with MANY photographers during the 1,000+ weddings I have Produced/DJ'd over the years and Catherine is one of my MOST Favorite. She is professional, She is Friendly, She was very talented, especially with getting creative photos. Always at the right place at the right time to capture the most amazing memories for her clients (and their guests), on photo. She always had a smile on her face!!! You could tell she LOVED being a photographer. I could EASILY see some of her photos show up on a cover of a wedding magazine. I HIGHLY recommend Catherine!!
