I'm Caitlin! A wedding & engagement photographers based in Madison, Wisconsin. I've lived here since 2012 and each day fall a little more in love with it.
Most days you'll find me at home with my husband Philip & our dogs Porter (golden doodle) and Norman (mini dachshund that joined our family after this photo was taken). I'm a self proclaimed music junky & an active Peloton rider. I'm a homebody and a lover of all things carbs.
I run my business with a hands on approach. From helping you build a timeline to offering up advice on what to wear for your sessions. If you have a question about anything wedding related, I'm here for you.
I've LOVE the opportunity to photograph your bid day. Let's make some pretty photos together.
I am a wedding & portrait photographer based in Madison, Wisconsin. I've called this city home since 2012 and each day fall a little more in love with it.
The same year I moved to Madison I started my business. 10 years & 150+ weddings later, I can confidently say I specialize in natural light portraiture that is full of vibrancy & light.

When we were planning our wedding there was a few things we knew for certain.. We wanted the event to be classic, romantic, and intimate. We wanted our relationship to be the importance of the day and we wanted really really good food.
Surrounded by only 28 people, we celebrated our love & the relationship we have built. Philip is my absolute best friend.
Our wedding photographs will go down as some of my most prized processions. My job has always been important to me but it wasn't until this day that I truly realized the impact of a photograph.
The people we love most perfectly captured on one of the happiest days of our lives.
It's true. My right hand is essentially useless and isn't capable of much. Left handed people actually out number the righties on my moms side of the family. Philip is ambidextrous which i'm sometimes jealous of. Especially when writing with a pen on notebook paper #smudgelife.
Caynay is actually what I nicknamed myself when I was a little girl. "Caitlin" was a bit hard to say so Caynay was born. When I was at the beginning of building my business, "Caitlin Stemper Photography" didn't have a good ring to it.. So Caynay Photo was born!
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.
