Meet Caitlin

From the beginning of my career, I have always been aware of just how impactful wedding photographs can be. One of the biggest celebrations of your life is made up very few pieces that can last for generations. Your photos are one of those things.

Philip and I were married on November 19, 2021. Our weddings photos will be something that I reflect back on over and over and over again. The people I love most perfectly captured on one of the happiest days of my life. The laughter, hugs, those in between moments. They make my heart so happy.

Capturing your wedding day, to fully encompass just the magnitude of your love is of utmost importance. The look your momma gave you when she helped you slip into your dress, the smile your partner had as you walked down the aisle. Remember your day exactly how it happened. With vibrancy, joy, and love.

the wedding process

01.

Once we're officially official, you'll receive an 80 page Wedding Experience Guide. This guide has everything from a sample family formal list to a timeline template. You'll also have the opportunity to book your engagement session! This session is one of my favorite parts of the wedding experience as it allows us to hang out & take pretty photos along the way.

02.

100 days out from your big day will be when we jump into timeline building. With a simple questionnaire, I am able to get a better look into your day & understand your priorities. After 130+ weddings,  let's make the most of our time together.

03.

It's OFFICIALLY here! You're getting MARRIED. Let's celebrate and have the most beautiful day ever. Shortly after your wedding you'll receive a sneak peek, a custom blog post, and gallery delivery will be in your inbox within 2-3 weeks.

After inquiring, I will send over The Wedding Investment Guide. This guide will give you an overview to the client experience and what it means to be a part of the Caynay Family. If you decide to proceed forward (which I hope you do), I'll send over your client portal and a contract. To book your date, I require a signed contract and a five hundred dollar retainer.

lets start at the beginning

the wedding process

how it works

01.

initial inquiry

You reach out. I send over some additional information & then I answer any and all questions you may have. If you're ready to book we can move onto step two.

02.

booking

Your Caynay Photo portal will be activated. This will be your main hub with everything important. Your contract, payments, + questionnaires will be done via this portal.

03.

engagement session

My favorite part of our time together. There is something so special about getting to know my couples more. Best part though? We get some pretty photos along the way.

04.

100 days out

100 days out from your big day is when we will jump into timeline building. With a simple questionnaire, I am able to get a better look into your day & build a fully customized timeline that makes the most sense for you.

05.

30 days out

One month from your big day is when you will receive your wedding questionnaire. This questionnaire is my lifeline for your wedding day. From family formals down to your vendors. It allows me to walk into your day ready to go.

06.

hip hip hooray! It's wedding day!

It's officially here! You're getting MARRIED! Let's celebrate and have the most magical day ever!

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.

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.

LOVE YOUR IMAGES BEFORE YOU EVEN SEE THEM.

Over the years I've learned that the wedding experience has a lot to do with how you make people feel. It is not uncommon that when I say goodbye to a couple (or even their parents) at the end of the night that I hear words of affirmation. Things like "comfortable" and "joyful" and "we just know you did a phenomenal job" are things frequently said. On your wedding day, I want you to feel loved on, taken care of, supported, and heard. I want you to not feel like you have spent the entire day in front of the camera and that your wedding party was able to enjoy their time. I want us to part ways and for you to feel, without a doubt, that your day was captured to its fullest potential. I want to do that for you.

When it came time to pick our photographer, I didn't even have to think about it; I knew it had to be Caynay Photo.

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.
