Catalina photographed our Portland wedding elopement and she did an absolutely fantastic job. The weather was horrible; freezing cold, raining and windy, and she was a total trooper. She got us EXACTLY the kind of Christmas photos we were hoping for, with sparking lights and a warm glow.
Catalina took us all over town to get the best kinds of backgrounds for our photos, and gave us the urban vibe we requested. Catalina isn't into the staged, dorky wedding photos of generations prior... she tells a story with her art, and really captures the love between the couple. I highly recommend her work to anyone looking for a photographer to make their day special.

Planning a wedding can be daunting and finding a wedding photographer that you feel can truly capture your wedding story can be even more stressful! A dear friend recommended Catalina Jean Photography after I had been scouring websites for Portland area wedding photographers for days. Once I saw her site I immediately contacted her for an appointment. When we actually met Catalina Jean, heard her passion for her career, and saw her portfolio of work I knew the search for the best Portland wedding photographer was complete - we booked her ASAP!

Once our wedding day arrived I was so excited for Catalina's arrival and to see how she would document our wedding story. My husband and I felt completely at ease with Catalina and I truly feel she captured our love, personality and the vibe of our big day. She was very professional, kind, and most of all you could feel how excited she was for us on our special day and how honored she was to be the one to capture it all for us.

Once we received the final images we literally lost it - the images she captured are literally works of art. The wedding images are incredible and I am so grateful that we went with Catalina Jean Photography for our Portland OR wedding - we will have these incredible images forever. I highly recommend purchasing one of Catalina's fine art wedding albums. We purchased one and again Catalina was great to work with during the creation of the album. It's so nice to have this album to look through with my husband that tells our wedding story from beginning to end.

I cannot speak highly enough of Catalina Jean Photography - thank you Catalina for capturing our wedding day and most importantly capturing all the love.

Working with Catalina was a dream come true. From our initial consult an on, it never felt like a vendor interaction, but more like a bunch of friends making plans.
During the whirlwind that is your wedding day, everything goes by so fast, but Catalina was able to keep us in the moment, enjoying eachother, while capturing our love in a way that I didn't know was possible.
Even months later, looking at our photos takes me back to those moments as if I'm there all over again, reliving the happiest day of my life. We feel so incredibly lucky to have had Catalina as our photographer.

Wow, what can I say about Catalina? She is the most talented photographer you will find to document your special wedding day or event. Her pictures speak for themselves, but I can attest that they are so beautiful, and she expertly captures the emotion, small moments, and precious candids throughout the day. What's more, she is incredibly kind, professional, communicative and a pleasure to work with. Many of our guests commented on how nice and professional she was at the event, and I so enjoyed meeting and talking with her in the planning leading up to the wedding day. She got us back our photos very quickly, and they were more amazing than I could have ever imagined. So many people have commented on how beautiful they are! I highly recommend Catalina to anyone looking to document a special moment in their lives!

We wanted a wedding photographer who could capture natural, timeless and candid images of our intimate 10-guest wedding. Catalina was a perfect fit for us in so many ways. To start with, she was enthusiastic and gracious about shooting our wedding despite its small size, which was not the case with many other vendors we reached out to as we planned our wedding. From the planning stages, to our actual wedding day, to delivering all our photos a few weeks later, Catalina was a total pro. She is warm, super skilled and has an incredible eye for capturing emotions that we now get to relive through all our photos. We are both pretty camera shy, but Catalina put us at ease and we ended up with so many portraits that really captured who we are. We only had Catalina for a couple hours, so we were very surprised and impressed when she gave us hundreds of gorgeous images, from portraits to candids to beautiful detail shots of our location that I didn't think to ask for, but am so grateful to have. On the day of our wedding Catalina came early and scouted out a number of spots to shoot and kept us on schedule and relaxed, even when the coming rain meant that we had to move our outdoor portraits to before the ceremony at the last minute. I can't over emphasize how valuable it was to have such a calming and competent person making things work when we were too overwhelmed to think clearly. When you work with Catalina, you know you're in good hands and have nothing to worry about! If you're not into cheesy flash-lit portraits and are looking for someone who can tell the unique story of your wedding through heirloom-quality images, Catalina is your photographer.

I'm so glad that we found Catalina. Both she and her husband photographed our wedding, and they were both so fun to work with. Catalina was very flexible about travel (coming to a remote island in another state), and very prompt and communicative in all of our interactions before the wedding. Catalina also offered a range of options that helped us get just the right amount of photo coverage without being at all confusing. On the day of, she and her husband actually showed up early and took photos of the set-up process, which turned out to be some of my favorites. The images she captured of the ceremony, dinner, and the party afterwards are beautiful, and really come together to tell the story of the whole day. I 100% recommend Catalina, she is an absolute gem.

Catalina was an absolute delight to work with. Her work is incredible, with a unique, creative angle to them - so much more special than generic photos where everyone just smiles at the camera and does standard poses. I knew that I wanted our photos to have an editorial feel, and when I found her website I saw that she was just what we were looking for. She was a bit out of our price range, but I contacted her anyways, hoping that we would be able to work something out. She was very accommodating and let me know what options we had with our budget, and we were able to pick a perfect package. My parents didn't understand why I was so adamant on having a wonderful photographer - they said they never even look at their wedding photos. That is exactly WHY I wanted an amazing photographer! So that I could enjoy looking back at our photos. Catalina was so professional, friendly, helpful during the entire process, which was awesome considering I was the wedding planner and we had about two months to figure everything out! Not having to stress about the photography was a huge weight off my shoulders. She asked great questions about what types of photos we'd want, the time frame of the ceremony, and during the day of was very laid back and easy going which was great because it was a stressful day! She got countless "money shots" in such a short time which I was very thankful for - and that takes talent! She scouted the event location beforehand and had plenty of ideas for photos but also went with the flow and played around with different locations. The result was a beautiful collection of photos that capture the feeling and memory and energy of that day. They are not just photos, they are almost alive. Catalina is a true artist with an incredible talent to harness peoples' spirits through photography. I am so thankful that we found her and that she was willing to work with us! You could not go wrong selecting her as your photographer for a special event.

Catalina was an incredible find! My husband and I just happened across her website on a quest to find a wedding photographer that focused more on feelings and nature than on pomp and showiness. We could not have been more impressed with Catalina's skill at capturing moments that bring back floods of warm memories as well as her professionalism, kindness and passion for her job and life. I give Catalina my highest recommendation as a photographer and am fortunate that she is part of our wedding story.

There is no one better I can think of to take wedding photographs, or capture any of life's important moments. She has an unbelievable eye and an intuition to capture breathtaking images. We could not have been happier with the moments/photographs she had taken for both our engagement and wedding. She has all the great qualities of a professional photographer: she's on time, responds to your emails/questions in a timely manner, easily accessible, does her homework/research/scouting (on clients and venue), accommodates the "feel" her clients want in their portraits, and above everything else is very personable and easy to talk to. Catalina is an amazing artist with the ability to make moments last a life time. I will be using her services in future and recommending her to others.
