I'm Catherine, but you can call me Catie! I'm a wedding photographer based in Charleston, SC specializing in outdoor weddings for joyful, bright couples with adventurous souls.
In my free time you can find me reading a good book, daydreaming about Disney, eating way too much sushi or watching The Office or Glee with my Golden Retriever, Toulouse, and my gray kitty, Gus. Yes, they are both named after Disney characters!
Weddings are filled with such precious, intimate moments and I am here to capture all of them! Let's face it, your big day will go by so fast and before you know it you will be on a plane in route to your honeymoon. And when that wedding gallery hits your inbox all the memories will come flooding back to you. Your first look where your now husband was holding back *happy* tears, exchanging hugs with family you haven't seen in years, dancing with your dad, and walking down the aisle moments after sharing your vows and exchanging your first kiss as husband and wife.
Majority of your wedding day you will find me snapping all of the candid and unplanned moments that you may not remember. All I want you to do is smile, have fun and soak it all in. You will be looking back on these photos for years to come!

I'm pretty sure I was born already obsessed with Disney. I remember constantly having Disney movies playing and dreaming of being a Disney princess.
My mom used to work at SeaWorld when I was little, hence my obsession with stingrays.
My top 3 favorite foods all start with the same letter: Spaghetti, Sushi, and Shrimp & Grits
If I wasn't a photographer I would be working with animals/ocean life. My dream when I was little was to be an Orca trainer at SeaWorld!
Traveling is one of my favorite things, but I am terrified of flying and heights.
I love musicals. I think my obsession started with High School Musical. No shame.
I'm an avid reader. every time I pick up a new book a little butterfly flitters in my stomach.
Tom Hanks is my all time favorite actor. My favorite movies he's in are Saving Mr. Banks and Big.
Gummi bears and ice cream are the two sweets that I can never resist. Ice cream sandwiches are good on any day of the week!
There are 4 things that I will never get tired of watching: The Office, Glee, Harry Potter and romantic comedies.
Fifty First Dates is one of those romantic comedies that will NEVER get old.
I feel so blessed every day that God has given me the opportunity to share his love with others through my photography.
