candid wedding photos for fun couples who want to be in the moment on their wedding day!


"Catherine Ann Photography was the best decision we made for our wedding day! I was a ball of nerves and the moment Katie walked in I felt more at ease thanks to her professionalism, experience, and kind words. In spite of having to work around rain, my wedding day went smooth and everything we wanted still got captured thanks to her. My wedding pictures are a dream (you would never know it was rainy from the pictures!) and I don't even know how to pick favorites because they're all too good! I highly recommend her and Jay and would hire them again in a heartbeat!" -Savannah

What to expect with us on your wedding

Your wedding day is a celebration, not an endless photoshoot! Charleston is a big destination wedding location, so your guests are coming from all over to celebrate you and you should be spending time with them.


But what's the secret sauce so you CAN spend time with your guests? By doing a First Look, which will allow you to spend 45 minutes of cocktail hour with them. Are you planning on sticking to tradition? No worries! We dont require First Looks, but please know you WILL miss out on your entire cocktail hour and therefore time with your guests and you will receive 40% LESS couples photos than those who do one.


Jay & I take what we call an 80/20 approach to how we capture your wedding so that your photos are a mix of romantic, candid & fun!


80% of the time, we're capturing things as they happen naturally - a hug from grandma after the ceremony, an impromptu Spice Girls sing along with your besties while getting ready, your parents crying when they see you in your dress for the first time, laughing with your cousins while sharing a bourbon at cocktail hour.


The other 20% of the time we take a more active approach by directing you into the best light when its time to FINALLY step into your wedding dress, we'll help you to have natural looking couples portraits that are actually fun to take (rejoice, Grooms!), and of course we'll tell your wedding party & family how to stand and what to do with their hands.
