Her quality is truly unmatched. She is unreal and we will never be able to thank her enough for documenting such special days in our lives in a such a beautiful way. She's not just our photographer, she's quickly become a friend and someone we will recommend couples to until the end of time.

From the moment we got engaged, we knew we wanted Caitlin to photograph our wedding. Not only is she incredibly relatable and kind, she is extremely talented at everything she does.

Caitlin makes the photography side of your wedding completely painless. She stayed on top of her timeline while checking in on us periodically and the day of our wedding. Hire her period. We’re thrilled to have chosen her as our photographer.

Caitlin was a dream to work with! She not only was exceptionally responsive and communicative, she was also exceedingly professional during our wedding, and most importantly, produced the most incredible set of images we could have hoped for. Everyone who has seen our pictures has described them as "stunning," "breathtaking," and "gorgeous," and we couldn't agree more! The pictures far exceeded our already high expectations. Among all of our wedding vendors, Caitlin stood out as punctual, responsive, professional, knowledgeable, confident, and enjoyable to work with. We know that any bride and groom will be beyond thrilled with Caitlin and her work!

Caitlin was absolutely great to work with for our wedding! She made us both feel comfortable during our engagement photos which then carried over to the big day. She helped with a timeline for the wedding day and sent tips and tricks for the photos (what to wear, how to relax, etc). We are in love with our photos from Caitlin! She did an amazing job at capturing our wedding day and we are so thankful for her! Her turn around time to get the pictures is very quick, as well. We will definitely be calling Caitlin anytime we need a photographer in the future!

To know Caitlin, is to love her. She has such a bubbly, fun personality that makes you immediately feel comfortable in front of the camera within seconds of meeting. My husband hates getting his picture taken and even he was singing her praises as we walked away from our engagement shoot and would rave to all of his friends about how excited he was to have her there for our big day. Friends and family were equally as impressed with her work and personable nature, and we received compliments about her all day.

Her quality is truly unmatched. She is unreal and we will never be able to thank her enough for documenting such special days in our lives in a such a beautiful way. She's not just our photographer, she's quickly become a friend and someone we will recommend couples to until the end of time. Thank you for everything, Caitlin. We love you!

For my husband and I, photography was the most important aspect of our wedding day. From the moment we got engaged, we knew we wanted Caitlin to photograph our wedding. Not only is she incredibly relatable and kind, she is extremely talented at everything she does. She helped with details down to the exact timeline of our day, texted us reminders, and was so excited and flexible. Caitlin was extremely responsive throughout the whole wedding planning process. Caitlin made us, our friends, and our families feel so comfortable- she works so fast, talks to you the entire time, helps adjust poses/hair, etc. I know some of our bridal party will be reaching out to Caitlin for their upcoming weddings because everyone was so impressed with her work. We can't recommend Caynay enough!!!

Caitlin is an angel photographer!! She makes the photography side of your wedding completely painless. She stayed on top of her timeline while checking in on us periodically and the day of our wedding. We hired her to shoot our wedding in Chicago and she was always on top of things from Madison, WI. She even arrived EARLY the day of for extra wiggle room! Her turn around is quick too! We got a sneak peak within 24 hours and there’s a ton of sneak peak photos to get you excited for the real deal. Hire her period. We’re thrilled to have chosen her as our photographer. From the photos we’ve seen so far.. they're just absolute perfection.

we're ready to inquire!

fun fact: i've taken a photo with almost every couple.

This tradition started quickly after I started working in the wedding industry. It's because after all the emails, your engagement session, following you on socials, and feeling like a small part of this journey... I am SO unbelievably excited to be celebrating your marriage. I love my job. I do. But in the moment of these photographs it isn't about that.. It's about grabbing a memento that means so dang much to me. By joining the Caynay Family you're not just gaining a photographer, but a friend.
