About Cathy Smith Photography

I am a photographer. And I don't mean only that I can pick up a camera and take a great picture - I mean that every part of myself feels that picture. When I see an beautiful photo, I stop and admire everything about it. When I see amazing moments taking place in front of me, I want to remember them forever, as they are. And I want you to be able to remember them too! I want my photos to capture the entire feeling of a moment in a way that, when you look at them again, you are flooded with the emotions of that moment - that it brings you back to experience that joy over, and over again.

Although I love photographing families and children, I have found that my true joy behind the camera is capturing the emotions and excitement of a wedding day. Being able to experience two people's love, on that most important day, and to capture those beautiful memories, is an awesome honor. When I'm with my brides and grooms, I can't help but get excited and nervous for them! (I've even cried at a few ceremonies!) I'm a sucker for true love, and I want all of my clients to be able to see how they radiate their love on the day they are becoming husband and wife.

My wedding photography encompasses candid and posed portraits, along with my own artistic flair, to create the story of your day, from beginning to end. By focusing on both the small and epic moments throughout the day, the photos and albums I deliver will allow you to experience the wonderful memories and emotions you felt all over again, for years to come!

I would love to get the opportunity to know you and to talk about your plans for your BIG day. Feel free to contact me directly at cathysmithphotography@gmail.com - I look forward to talking to you!

    Awesome Experience!

    Cathy was such a great choice for our wedding! She was so nice and easy going when we had no idea what to do! She had so many great ideas and really made all the colors come out in the pictures. She really helped make our day so special!

    Wedding 03/31/2017

    Cathy did an engagement shoot prior to the wedding day. The quality time getting to know the photographer was great. Being able to create a bond with the photographer before the big day makes it not so awkward on the wedding day! You’ll know a little bit about her as well as her business and how dedicated she is to get the best photos she can. Both sets of pictures came out great! Engagement and wedding! I am so in love with them. Would definitely recommend Cathy for any event!

    The best from engagement to big day!

    Saw Cathy in action for our friends’ wedding and the photos after and knew she would be perfect for us, too. She really captures the “special something” in all her couples. It’s awesome having so many fantastic images that look exactly how amazing our wedding day felt!
