I love weddings, and would love to photograph you with the one you love the most.
Originally from the second largest city in Iowa (I know nothing about corn) with a decent chunk of time spent bopping between Oregon and Minneapolis (fact: forget about St. Paul — Portland is Minneapolis’ West Coast twin) since 2009, I permanently relocated to Portland in 2015 and haven’t looked back.
Hellooo! Winter is green out here!
I love color, bending the rules, and anything a little out of the ordinary. To this day, my favorite non-photo job was the summer I spent as a camp counselor with low-income and at-risk youth. The visual storytelling of Joe Wright and Terrence Malick (and as of 2017, I better be adding Christopher Nolan to this list – Dunkirk, anyone?) films leave me speechless.
My non-photography hobbies include spending too many hours cozied up in bed watching a new, *random* Netflix/Amazon Prime/Hulu find, spontaneously breaking out into solo dance parties, defying tempation in the Trader Joe’s freezer aisle, trying not to trip over things in public spaces, and eating/drinking my weight in Cheetos/gin and tonics.
The only phrase that I feel accurately describes my delightfully capricious persona is “semi-pragmatic daydreamer”: I have a tendency to swing between being hella neurotic (attention to detail! as unnecessarily prepared as a Boy Scout!) and hella laid back (go with the flow! up for anything!) which I feel uniquely prepares me for the ebb and flow of a wedding day.
"You have blown us away! We cannot thank you enough---you are a truly genuine gift to us! These pictures are far beyond anything we could have dreamed of having as a remembrance of our very favorite day. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thankyouthankyouthankyou...
for the INCREDIBLE pictures and your friendship! Our hearts are FULL. xoxoxoxo"
"We appreciate everything you did for us on our wedding day, before and after! The photos you took are absolutely beautiful! We know how much time it must’ve taken for you to edit them, and they look perfect."
"Just looked through them all... we are speechless and have tears in our eyes. Beautiful beyond words. Thank you for all of your hard work and energy you put into those captured moment in time. We will be looking at them 24/7 for the next few weeks."
"Caitlin, I LOVE the pictures! You did such an amazing job at capturing every moment for us. You are so gifted and have such a great eye. Thank you so much for everything!"
