      To ensure a premium experience for her exclusive network of clients, Catherine accepts only a limited number of wedding assignments. With grace, skill, and positive energy, she has earned a strong reputation for exceeding expectations and often forges relationships with her clients that endure for years beyond the wedding day.


      Words cannot express how much we loved working with Catherine. My husband and I looked through countless photographers for our Lake Tahoe wedding--Catherine's photos were our absolute favorite, so we submitted a form inquiring about our date, crossing our fingers that she was available. What set Catherine apart from every other vendor we worked with was that she didn't just reply to the questions in an email--she called and had an hour-long conversation with me about our wedding, what we were looking for in a photographer, and just learned more about ourselves personally. I immediately felt like she was more of a friend than a vendor. Not only were she and her fantastic assistant, Kyla, very quick to respond and communicative, but they went above and beyond. They helped provide recommendations for other vendors and even offered advice on how I should do my hair when I expressed I was torn between a few options. I also appreciated her honesty with the area and how pictures would turn out. We floated the idea driving to some other locations along the lake, but she noted that the light would be too harsh at that time and the location would take us away from our wedding for too long. She knows that area like the back of her hand, and made sure we got the best results. Fast-forward to the wedding day, and our experience with her was nothing short of amazing. Not only did she make us feel comfortable doing a lot of different poses, but she knew exactly what to do and how to arrange the furniture and lighting--and did it quickly. Several of our wedding guests were also singing her praises and have inquired about her doing their own family portraits. She truly is the best at what she does. We already plan to work with her again for our first family photos! MARRIED: July 11, 2021 VENUE: Plumpjack Squaw Valley Inn Nicole
