About Me – I love to make people say wow! My emphasis when photographing a wedding is about creativity, fashion and life. I want my clients to feel like their wedding photographs belong in a magazine or as a piece of art on their wall. That’s not to say that there won’t be a handful of traditional photographs to keep everyone happy. My style is a mix of photojournalism and classic wedding photography leaving you with an exciting yet timeless collection of wedding photographs.
Packages – All wedding photography packages include my time and talent as your photographer on your wedding day. I shoot digitally in High Resolution RAW format using top Canon SLR cameras and lenses. This allows me to take an unlimited amount of photographs. After the wedding I will process each image. This involves optimizing color, creating sepia tone and black & white photographs. Once this is complete I will upload all of your edited photographs to an online gallery where you may share them with friends and family. High quality prints and enlargements may be purchased through this service.I will also include with every package all the full resolution photographs of all of the final images from your wedding. These are your wedding pictures and I believe that you should have them. Additional services such as engagement sessions, bridal portraits, enlargements, proof books, albums and more are also available.

FAQ- Where is the best place to have our portrait taken?
Pick a location that is represenative of your personailty. Here are a couple of local suggestions: Fay Bainbridge Park, Hawley Cove, Public Farm land, Battlepoint Park, downtown Winslow, Lyle Beach. I also encourage you to come up with fun and different ways to have your portraits taken including renting a rowboat or making a picnic. Portraits may also take place at a private home.
What time should we start?
I start almost all of my sessions aproximately an hour to two hours prior to sunset for the best lighting.
What should we wear?
I recomend wearing solid colors or simple prints and to avoid wearing anything too trendy. For family groups, I would advice staying away from wearing matching outfits, but instead pick a color theme and incorporate that into different types of clothes.
What happens if it rains on my reserved date?
Living in the Pacific Northwest we know that bad weather can sometimes prohibit a portrait session from taking place. In most cases I will contact you by phone on the day of the session to confirm our appointment. If the weather does not look like it will corporate, we can move the session to a different day.
How long is the turnaround time?
After the portrait is complete, I will edit all of the photographs creating a mixture of color and black and white photographs. In one to two weeks, these will then be placed in an online gallery for viewing and purchase. Prints normally take another 5-10 days to arrive after ordering.

Cathy and Travis Holt
“I was googling va beach wedding photography and Catie’s Photography website link came up. I went through the website and just fell in love with her photojournalism “in the moment” shots.Our meeting was great. We hit it off and I just had to have her. Catie was friendly and professional. She spent a lot of time at the wedding and our photos turned out amazing. It was like we were looking at our own photos out of a magazine. Everything was so beautiful and Catie worked so hard to capture thosemoments and made them lasting memories just for us. Thank you so much.”
Christine and Ed Ronan
Ed and I are absolutely overwhelmed with our pictures. We cannot say enough about how pleased we are with the quality, creativity, and effort that is reflected in each and every print. They are priceless! We are truly undecided as to which ones to order. Not only did our pictures turn out but you were awesome to work with! With all of the wedding bliss you found a way to get Ed and I alone which help us to take a moment to reflect on the true meaning of the day . Thank you! It felt as if you were just one of the family hanging out! Everyone could not say enough about how polite and professional you were. We are getting so many compliments about both the pictures and your interaction with everyone! Thanks for making the day so special and really capturing the moment!
Angela and Dan Burr
“Dear Catie, Our Friends and Family are just floored by the great pictures we have of our wedding day. I love the fact that you are so artistic with your photography, and you manage to catch moments that most photographers would miss. I can’t say thank you enough for capturing some of the most precious memories I will ever have on film, especially the reception pictures. There was so much going on and we love to flip through the photos and relive the day!”
Brin and J.W. Tabacchi
“Working with Catie was an absolute pleasure. The goal of our destination beach wedding was a memorable, stress-free day, and Catie definitely helped us achieve that and capture it all in some really beautiful photos. We couldn’t be happier to share with our friends and family these still frame memories of our special day. Thanks Catie!”
Vicky & Christian Defilippo
“Catie was the photographer extraordinare at our wedding. She was like one of the family, encouraging and guiding us through the day. She had a professional, unobtrusive style. The photographs she took were beautiful and she made me feel like a princess. She was able to capture the true emotion and meaning of the wedding. She didn’t take the events but she caught the glances and tears and of course the crazy dancing. We wish she could be at all of our life events and recommend her whole heartedly.”
Annemarie and Sean Hanrahan
“Hey Catie. I just wanted to tell you that we LOVE the pictures! They are all gorgeous!!! We’ve shared them with lots of friends and family already and everyone has nothing but raving compliments! Thank you SO much for everything. After the wedding I already knew you had done a fabulous job, but now after seeing the pictures I am blown away! We will definitely be contacting you at some point about the photo album. Of course I don’t know how we will ever be able to narrow them down. Thanks again – I really can’t express how happy we are with them!”
Dan and Stephanie Bedell
“We consider ourselves lucky to have found a photographer like Catie for our wedding. Her technology -driven process not only produced countless awe-inspiring shots, but it made sharing pictures with our family all over the country so easy. She knows exactly what a photographer should do – capture the little moments you might have forgotten, and produce portraits you’ll be happy to show your grandchildren. And she manages to do it all in an unobtrusive, friendly and caring fashion. We would recommend her to everyone for any photography need – She is worth every penny.”
Meribeth and Garth Mills
“When my husband and I met Catie for the first time, there was no doubt that she was the perfect photographer for our wedding. She was so professional, friendly and fun! It was very important to me to have the story of our wedding day from beginning to end. Catie was there until the last dance. She captured some our favorite moments – moments another photographer would have missed!”
Emily and Joe Clark
Catie was very professional and great to work with! Her photos covered every aspect of my wedding and gave me many to choose from. She never got in the way. In fact she even took some pictures with guests cameras for them. I have never seen a wedding photographer do that! Everyone is raving about the great pictures that she took and are considering booking her for there own special day! I can’t thank her enough for the great job she did!
Jeanette and Ryan Boze

Catie, you captured the tone of the day perfectly. We all had so much fun just being surrounded by all of our friends, and family, and ALL those kids, and your amazing photography reflects that.”
