Our photos were ready fast and they were AMAZING. As someone who's familiar with photography, I can say with confidence that Katie is truly a professional. She knows how to shoot, rather than photoshop, a wedding. Our photos are stunning! THANK YOU!!! - Amy & Tyler

Hey there! We're Katie & Jay, a wedding photography team located in Charleston SC. We specialize in weddings at outdoor & historic venues for couples planning a more personalized wedding and who value couples portraits and spending time with their guests!



Jay and I take an 80/20 approach to your wedding day. 80% of the time, we stay out of the way and capture things exactly as they happen. The other 20% is when we step in to have you stand in the best light when its time to get ready, direct you into natural and effortless poses, and of course, setting up the family shots. We want your photos to evoke a sense of romance, authenticity, and joy.

We edit your images as little as possible, which is achieved by creating beautiful photographs straight out of our cameras. We don’t use Photoshop and we will not make you look like a different person in the edits. I love sharing tips and tricks for looking your best in photos during the engagement session so you feel like a pro on the wedding day!

Our 80/20 style of shooting allows us to capture not only the beautiful posed portraits, but the authentic moments that make each wedding unique; your father skipping into the reception full of joy, a tender kiss on the cheek from your groom before being announced as husband and wife, your best friend crying when she sees you in your wedding dress. These are the real moments of the wedding day you will treasure for the next 60 years.



Our work has been featured on Southern Weddings, Junebug Weddings, Grey Likes Weddings, The Knot, Project Wedding, Southern Bride, Weddings Unveiled, A Lowcountry Wedding, Glamour & Grace, and The Frosted Petticoat. Read less

Where to begin with how grateful my fiancé and I are for Katie at Catherine Ann Photography?! She was gracious enough to squeeze in a last minute engagement session with us just before Christmas in Charleston, SC! We recently moved to the area and wanted to get our engagement photos in during a very short time window due to my fiancé being in the military and having a limited schedule. Katie was on board without even meeting us first and we ended up having a blast! She is kind hearted, funny, and makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera, which was difficult for me at first! Her photos are bright, beautiful, and captured us so well! Packages are affordable and completely worth the investment! Catherine Ann Photography is a must, especially if you are interested in outdoor and historic venues!!! Love love love!!

We couldn't have asked for better photographers to capture our special day. Katie and Jay went above and beyond in order to make our day super special and they kept everything running smoothly. They made sure every shot we wanted was captured, and Katie is super creative and really does anything to make sure that your pictures will be absolutely perfect. They are also extremely easy to connect with and there were times where I felt like we weren't even working with vendors, but just hanging out with friends! We will definitely be using them again in the future and recommended them to anyone!

I cannot say enough great things about Catherine Ann Photography. To start, Katie and Jay were a dream to work with. When I first spoke to Katie on the phone, I felt such a great connection with her and knew that she had to be our wedding photographer. From the first minute we met at our engagement shoot, my husband and I felt so comfortable with Katie and Jay. They have such a great style of shooting- there were times when I didn’t even realize they were there and other times, Katie/Jay told us just what to do to make our photographs look great.

I was particularly drawn to Catherine Ann Photography because of the look of their photographs. Katie is able to photograph people in such a way that the colors are vivid while somehow remaining soft and a bit whimsical. Jay is a spectacular landscape photographer, and we were looking for someone who could take great photographs of the beautiful outdoor venue where we got married.

On our wedding day, it was great to have both Katie and Jay, because they were able to split up and photograph both my husband and me getting ready in separate areas. During our first look, they did such a fantastic job of remaining in the background so that we could share the moment privately while still having amazing photographs. Katie was great at using the time we had for photographs very efficiently. Jay took a spectacular landscape photograph with my husband and me just as the sun was setting. They are so skilled at capturing the smallest (but most meaningful) moments of the day- they even got a photograph of my husband quickly wiping a tear from my cheek during our vows.

As you can see, I could go on and on about how much we loved working with Katie and Jay as our wedding photographers. They truly are two very talented photographers, and my husband and I feel so fortunate that they were the ones to capture our special day. We would HIGHLY recommend choosing Catherine Ann Photography as your wedding photographer!

Oh my goodness...I cannot recommend Catherine Ann Photography enough! Katie and Jay were SO easy and fun to work with, both for our engagement photos, and on our wedding day. My husband and I felt so comfortable with them, and so we were truly able to be ourselves in front of the cameras, which was what we were hoping for! They captured our wedding day so perfectly, and we had our photos less than a week after the big day!

I absolutely loved their 80/20 approach as photographers. Basically, 20% of the photos are posed, and 80% are candid. This approach is so perfect because it helps to tell the story of your day. Our wedding was a destination wedding, so we had many loved ones who could not be there to celebrate with us in person. However, our wedding photos told a story, and I have heard from so many people that they feel like they were there simply by looking through the photos. Katie and Jay are artists, and I am so thankful for their gift!

Our photos were authentic, joyful, romantic, and FUN! Catherine Ann Photography is simply the BEST!

We were absolutely thrilled with the quality, responsiveness and great experience we had with Katie and Jay from Catherine Ann Photography. They were quick to get our engagement pictures and wedding pictures back after each event and we have loved the outcome! They were very flexible with location for each part of our wedding day and offered advice when needed. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs a photography team!

I can't think of a better way to start this review than to say that Katie and Jay took some of the best pictures that have even been taken of me. They photographed our civil ceremony in Bluffton, SC and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Both my partner and I have a tendency to look stiff in photos, but Katie and Jay were inobtrusive during the ceremony and made us feel completely comfortable in the portrait session afterward. The result are beautiful, soft, natural photos that captured special cadid moments, the beauty of the surroundings as well as our love for each other. We treasure our photos! I only wish there was some way I could have them out to photograph our wedding in Italy!

I immediately fell in love with Katie & John's photography after seeing the photos of another friend of mine's wedding. My husband and I loved how natural their shots looked, and the passion and emotions that each frame emphasized. Picking a wedding photographer can be stressful and nerve-racking, especially because you want to make sure you can trust whoever to get every special moment of your big day, and all the extra little things too. Choosing Catherine Ann Photography was the best decision we made throughout our entire year of wedding planning. Although they used to be located in Tampa, FL, within the last year they relocated to Charleston, SC. My husband and I, both being from Tampa, coincidentally had just set the venue to be under a tree in Charleston, SC... as if it couldn't get any more perfect!! Out of ALL the things that we bought for our wedding: the decorations, the food, the drinks, etc. I am most happy with the choice we made by choosing Catherine Ann Photography. My husband and I will now be able to relive that day for the rest of our lives by looking through these photos that Katie and John took. They were very professional and energetic throughout the entire process, they were easy to talk to, and most importantly, made wedding planning SIMPLE. I did not have a wedding planner, but I feel as though I did with all of the extra help we got from Katie and John. I recommend them to any bride planning on having their wedding outside or at a historic venue!

Where do I begin? I cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Catherine Ann Photography!
Because my fiance and I decided to have an intimate wedding, having beautiful photos to share with family and friends who wouldn't be there was incredibly important to me. Catherine Ann Photography exceeded all expectations that I could ever have! The photos that Katie and Jay took look so natural - they literally captured the love between my husband and I in a picture. It wasn't until I saw the pictures that I actually realized what their method was - while Katie was working directly with my husband and I, Jay was off to the side getting the shot from a unique angle; this allowed us to have some great candid photos. Both Katie and Jay are so extremely talented and I was lucky enough to have them both there photographing my special day. Katie was such a joy to work with throughout the entire process - totally professional, quick with correspondence, and easy to relate to. At the end of the day she and Jay were part of the family! I was so impressed with how quickly we were able to view our gallery, as I've heard horror stories of brides not receiving their photos for months! We were even featured on Catherine Ann Photography's blog before we were even home from our honeymoon - it was great being able to see a sneak peek! I thoroughly enjoyed working with Catherine Ann Photography and highly, highly recommend her!

Catherine Ann Photography, (i.e Katie and Jay) were fabulous to work with. We felt so comfortable during our engagement shoot and had an amazing time. She made wedding day pictures stress free, she was efficient without making any of us feel rushed.She is open to ideas from the Bride and Groom but also makes sure to get all the classic wedding pictures that we all love so much. When I was initially picking photographers I fell in love with how a similar pose could look so different- because she truly captures the personality of each bride and groom. She is enthusiastic and you can tell she loves her job and takes pride in her work. She was flexible always available for questions or concerns. My husband and I and my family loved my wedding and engagement pictures so much that she is now doing my sister's wedding!! You would be crazy if you didn't use Catehrine Ann Photography!!
