"ANY OLD HAG CAN TAKE PHOTOS WITH GOOD LIGHT BUT YOU'RE THE ONLY PHOTOGRAPHER I KNOW THAT IS ABLE TO CAPTURE THE GENUINE MOMENTS WITH THE SAME EMOTION AS THE MOMENT IT HAPPENED. I LOOK AT YOUR PHOTOS AND FEEL LIKE I'M THERE AND THAT IS MAGIC, MY FRIEND."
LOGAN

"If I had a dollar for everyone who said that Cathrine was the best photographer they've ever worked with at a wedding, I'd be rich! Cathrine obviously have a gift of photography but she's amazing at doing it in a way that makes people feel so comfortable and valued.”
KELLY

"I CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR EVERYTHING! YOU WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND HELPING WITH THINGS TOTALLY NOT IN YOUR JOB DESCRIPTION. YOU MADE IT FEEL JUST LIKE HANGING OUT WITH GOOD FRIENDS. YOU TRULY MADE THE DAY WONDERFUL. THANK YOU. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!” 
TAYLOR

"you are the most amazingly talented photographer on the planet. these photos are better than we could have ever dreamed. thank you a million times for saving those moments for us and letting us relive that day over and over again."

next step:

You've thoroughly combed through my website and Instagram feed and like what you see! The next step is setting up a time to chat. I'd love to learn more about you and your fiance and hear what you guys have planned for your big celebration. Over the phone, we will go over pricing and talk about any questions you may have. If you're local to Birmingham, Alabama, I'd love to meet you guys at my studio for coffee!

CONNECT

Once your date is officially reserved, you can kick back and relax knowing that the memories of your wedding day are in the best hands (this calls for champagne!). I'll send over a few resources to help you prepare for the big day. I'm happy to serve as a source for vendor recommendations, timeline guidance and more! I'm only a text away.

secure

Hate taking photos? Great! I'll make it fun and easy for you. Let's meet up for drinks, get to know each other and snap a few photos! I think of an engagement session as a great way for us to get to know each other better while you get some awesome photos. I suggest that every couple do an engagement session so that on your wedding day you feel comfortable being photographed. The date and location of the session are totally up to you!

ENGAGE

Two months before the wedding, we will start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else I should know about your big day. With you and your planner, we will form the perfect timeline for you guys so that you can relax and be fully present on your wedding day.

PREPARE

Your big day is here! You're marrying the love of your life,  having a party with your favorite people, and you've got the best team of vendors serving you. You get to be fully present and soak in all the emotions of this day. Words simply cannot describe the beauty of you two uniting. To say I'm grateful that I get to document these moments for you is an understatement.

CELEBRATE

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about 12 weeks of your wedding. At that time, I'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums. I believe that your family's legacy starts with making your memories tangible and that  legacy is too important put in the hands of ever changing technology. Choosing to preserve your memories makes it possible for the generations that surpass you to know your love story.

PRESERVE

This is just the beginning of our relationship. I am committed to document all parts of the life you two are building together–from settling into your new home, starting a business, your growing family, or photographing your siblings wedding. The best is yet to come!

Frequently asked

Film: the ooey-gooey, heart-melty, high-quality, colorful, grain-filled, motion-blurred beauty in a roll. It what you look at when you're flipping through the photos of you as a kid. It's what packs a punch of memories in your face and floods your senses with nostalgia. It's the “Cadillac of Memories,” and Cadillac's come with a price point. The film, the development, and the scanning of the film negatives into a digital format is costly. But I've chosen this medium for the experience I want my clients to have. And I want them to have the BEST. I will be shooting a few different formats of film throughout your wedding day until I switch to digital during your reception.

You bet! Ask about my travel rates.

Why do you shoot film?

do you travel?

That’s more than OK and I totally get it (I turn into a big hive in front of the camera). Don’t worry, It’s my job to make you feel comfortable and get you to open up. Most of the time I’m playing fun music, telling (horrible) jokes and helping direct and pose you along the way. At the end of the day, if you’re open and you really dig the person you’re getting married to, the photos will be amazing.

We are awkward in front of the camera. Is that OK?

Because every wedding story is unique, I like focusing my time on taking photos that help tell the story of the bride and groom as the wedding day unfolds. This includes capturing candid moments that are injected with soul, light and movement. Don’t worry, Moms! I still take classic posed photos, traditional family photos, and fun party shots.

What is your shooting style?
