About

Hi! I'm Cathrine Taylor, a soulful photographer based in Birmingham, Alabama.  
When I'm not photographing weddings and families, you can find me dancing in the kitchen to old records and daydreaming about the next item I want to check off on my bucket list.

MY manifesto

When I look back into my past, I have a hard time recalling memories that weren't documented by my family or friends. Family photos and handmade scrapbooks are some of my most prized possessions because they help me remember the moments that so easily slip my mind. My favorite photos of my past are the ones that were taken on instant film cameras or cheap disposable cameras. The photos aren't perfect—they have a soul to them. The movement, grain, bold colors and flash stimulate my senses and help place me back into the moment when the photo was snapped.
 
This is what I want for you. I want for you to look at the images of you and your loved ones and be flooded with the emotion you felt on the day the photographs were taken. I want you to remember with all of your senses how uniquely beautiful your life is and what it felt to love and be loved in that moment.
