Meet 

Caitlin Shulman

Owner and lead photographer of caynay photo

Most days you will find me at home with my husband, Philip and our two dogs Porter & Norman. We are homebodies by nature so there is nothing quite like curling up with a good book and a bowl of pasta.

I moved to Madison after college in August of 2012 and met Philip in August of 2019. Over the last 10 years, Madison has always felt like home. In our free time you can find us enjoying our backyard, out for a walk, or grabbing a delicious dinner downtown. 

After we were married in November of 2021, it solidified my goals even more as a photographer. Working efficiently without compromising versatility allows my couples to receive beautiful imagery while also feeling present on their day.

Your photographs should be as magical as your wedding day.

the Perfect pair

Much like your partner, the timeless bespoke satin gown, the perfectly fitted tux. The pieces that naturally fit together with ease and beauty. Those are the couples Caitlin loves most.

Choosing your wedding photographer is a big deal. Whether you've landed here by yourself or your planner has paired us, The Caynay Couple trusts that they are in the best hands. They value celebrating alongside the people they love most during a day that feels like them.

They are kind, welcoming, and ecstatic about love. By valuing their family and friends, The Caynay Couple is looking forward to being present on one of the most important days of their lives.

The ones that have my whole heart.

three of my top favorite photographs taken this season.

The movement from the veil is everything here. It truly is the piece that changes it all.

I love the flicker of the candles on the wall, the neutral palette with pops of green. The even lighting? Obsessed.

Speeches are one of my favorite moments to shoot. With classic images like this who could disagree?
