Hello! I’m Caitlin.

I’m a wedding + portrait photographer in Portland, Oregon.

You probably already knew that.

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: 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.

 


 

This is starting to feel a little too much like a dating profile, so I’ll cut to the chase:

 

→ You’ve got questions? I’ve got answers.

 

→ Or, just hop into my inbox so we can start this friendship already.
