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.

My now-husband and I met Catalina a year ago to interview her as our wedding photographer. She is sweet, personable, funny, and professional. We not only fell in love with her photography style, but also her personality. And she didn't mind all the questions we threw at her!

We got married in February of this year and feel so blessed to have had Catalina photograph our special day. She has a beautiful eye when it comes to capturing emotion and "the whole picture." When we look at our photos, we recall everything that happened in that moment.

We did a lot of research on Portland area photographers and the market is saturated. However, only a few have an artistic feel to their work - a true photographer's perspective. Catalina is one of the few and that's why we chose her. We really wanted someone to tell our story, while being sensitive to some of the anxieties that come with broken families at big events. Catalina was able to keep everyone organized who needed to be organized, listened to our needs, and made me feel like I was in especially good hands. Our day was perfect, stress free, and now we have a collection of photos to remind us of that day.

She provided a well-organized online gallery to view and purchase prints and share with friends and family, but also provided us with a thumb drive of our collection of edited photos. And the best part - she didn't just download them all and give them to us; she really takes the time to review the ones that are worth sharing. That showed us that she really takes pride in her work and her brand.

We treasure her photos even more as my grandfather passed away shortly after the wedding. He was a guest via Skype - something not easy to capture on film - but Catalina got the shots that I will forever keep safe. We are about to lose another family member who attended the wedding too. I'm so glad we were able to bring all our friends and family together and have those moments professionally recorded.

Catalina is a dream to work with. She is detailed, committed, trustworthy, and just the kind of personality you want around you on your wedding. She made it easy to sit back, relax, and trust that she was getting absolutely everything. She captured details and even some people that I, as the bride, never even got a chance to see on the day of and would have missed entirely if not for her. The photographs she took are absolutely stunning and will be treasured by our family for generations to come. She managed to truly capture how much love my husband and I have for each other and that is priceless. I recommend her to everyone I know in the North West on a regular basis because I truly believe she's the best choice that can be made in a wedding photographer.

There are not enough words to articulate how incredible our experience was with Catalina. She is the total package; an amazing photographer, who I would recommend to anyone! She took two very camera-shy individuals and produced beautiful photographs that really captured our wedding day and aesthetic. She was professional, always timely with her response, and flexible. Additionally, Catalina’s personality was so incredibly infectious and enthusiastic, that she really put us at ease during pictures and somehow elevated us even higher than we thought we already were. It is obvious she loves what she does!

We are so thankful for the opportunity to work with her. She was a fantastic addition to our wedding.

Just a little more to add … My father-in-law used to be an events photographer and could not stop talking about how impressed he was with her. What a gem!

Catalina is the most talented & creative photographer my husband and I have ever encountered. She took our engagement, as well as our wedding photos. She captured the themes we wanted perfectly and was prepared beforehand for her shoots, which made our wedding day (as well as our engagement session) flow seamlessly. During our engagement session she made us feel so comfortable and at ease, providing encouragement all throughout and making us feel like our photo-shoot was the best she'd ever captured. On our wedding day, she brought a vibe of peace-even when we had to rearrange our photo schedule-and made sure she didn't miss a single detail of our wedding day. For both sessions we received our edited photos back within weeks. She gave us all the necessary tools to access our photos and her work was stunning. We were so grateful for the time and effort she put into making our photos absolutely beautiful while still making sure to get them to us in a timely and efficient manner. Before our wedding date, she took time to correspond with us, making sure she had all the specifics in line and that we were all on the same page. Our engagement & wedding photos are more artistic & beautiful than we ever imagined, thanks to Catalina. We are ecstatic to share them with our friends & family-who are so amazed by her work-and to fill our home with the lovely images she captured of two of the most important seasons of our lives. She is highly recommended! You will not be disappointed by booking her!

Where do I begin? When Ben and I were searching for a photographer, we were both very discouraged! The cheapest price we could find in the town where we were getting married was outrageous, and worst of all, the photography was not artistic and seemed boring! Ben's sister had gotten married a few years back, so we asked her for advice and she recommended craigslist. Alas, Catalina. We fell in love with her photos immediately and her price was completely reasonable. As soon as we decided to go with Catalina, I knew we were going to have our wedding captured in the most beautiful way possible, and I was right. Catalina did an amazing job and she was also fun to work with. I am totally in love with our wedding photos and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Catalina has a great eye, she's artistic, fun and just totally awesome! She also drove from Portland to Lummi Island, Washington for our day, so she travels too!
