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. She had photos running on a slideshow during our reception of the ceremony with no editing and they looked stunning. THANK YOU!!! - Amy & Tyler

Hey there! We're Katie & Jay (yep, thats us up there!), 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 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 Grey Likes Weddings, The Knot, Project Wedding, Weddings Unveiled, A Lowcountry Wedding, Glamour & Grace, and The Frosted Petticoat. Read less

Katie and John captured the magic of our big day perfectly! Some pictures make me laugh out loud and others make me cry happy tears. Pictures are the only part of the wedding day that lasts forever and I couldn't be happier with how our photos turned out. Katie's style is so romantic, natural, light and airy. I highly recommend her. She's super talented, a total sweet heart, and very easy to work with. We can't thank her enough!!

We had a destination wedding in Charlston S.C. Didn't know anyone there and luckily found Catherine and Jay. With all The things going on, we never had to worry about our photographers. They truly made not only our wedding worry free, also the engagement photos as well.
They were a lot of fun to work with, and made the whole experience a true joy! We had a lot of fun, and Jodi and I are so appreciative of how simple and effortless you both made this seem.
Within a week we had all of our photos to share with all of our friends and family.. Yes within a week! I've heard horror stories of people waiting months for there photos to get back to them. Then the photos they received were not even that good. All the photos we received were incredible. Not to mention about a month later we received our very own personalized wedding album!
Very professional, tons of fun to work with, and just a all around great experience.. Also no hidden fees, what They said Is what we got! Highly recommended to anyone looking for a worry free and fun time!

We absolutely adored having Catherine and John photograph our wedding! Having a wedding out of state is definitely a challenge, but right from our very first phone call Catherine put us at ease and we knew we had a couple to help us on every step of the way. Our wedding pictures we so much better then we could of imagine. Everyone is still raving about how great our photographers were and on how stunning our pictures were. I LOVED how quickly we got to view our pictures (they were available by the time we were home from our honeymoon!)

Thank you Catherine and John for being such amazing professionals to work with!!

I can not figure out how to accurately describe how happy we were with our experience working with Katie and John! From the beginning we were so impressed with the personal touches that set Catherine Ann photography apart from other businesses. Katie is a true professional who goes above and beyond for her clients. They were easy to get in touch with, fun to interact with on the phone or Facebook and a joy to work with on the wedding day. Their attention to detail made us feel so special with little gifts in the mail and updates via email. Above all, I am so in love with the amazing photos. They are colorful, clear, and beautifully composed. I would look at them multiple times a day just reliving the memories. They captured every emotion!! This will absolutely be the best investment you make of your whole wedding. At the end of the day, the only thing you really take away are the memories and the photos (and a wonderful spouse haha). So trust these two to capture your wedding memories... you will be glad you did!

Our wedding was so perfect because it reflected our love. My husband and I were so excited to see the pictures, I couldn't wait to see what the ceremony looked like from his perspective and he wanted to see the pictures Katie took of us around Charleston! Before the wedding Katie immediately put me at ease and having her capture the most important moment of my life, was the easiest decision I made during the wedding process! Knowing she was in charge took all of the weight off my shoulders. She and John are the perfect team. The pictures they took are simply breathtaking. Kyle and I opted to take our pictures after the reception in our favorite places around Charleston. Katie and John worked together to capture these gorgeous places for us. It was so worth it to be able to spend time getting pictures of Kyle and I together, in our first few hours as husband and wife, in one of our favorite cities!

I am so grateful that I found Catherine Ann Photography. I have looked at other couple's photographs from their weddings but they do not have the life in them that Katie's photographs do. The pictures show my relationship with my husband to the tee. Even now we look back over the pictures because it really does bring back the day so clearly! AND Katie made the viewing website so user friendly!

Thank you Katie and John for capturing these memories and for being the calm in the storm on our wedding day!

I cannot express enough how happy I am that my husband and I chose Catherine Ann Photography for our wedding! Katie and John were absolutely amazing. They're both so kind and so easy to work with. They helped make our day go so smoothly and everything went as planned. We also were so thrilled with our pictures. The turn around was so fast, we had so many pictures to go through and they were all perfect! They took so many great shots! They knew certain pictures that were important to us and they went above and beyond. Their use of lighting is exactly what I wanted and I'm so happy with all our wedding pictures! I highly recommend them to everyone and cannot thank them enough!

Within 2 minutes of meeting Katie i knew she truly cared about us and our event and knew she would be more than just a photographer at our wedding but someone to celebrate in it with us!

Katie and John first did our engagement photos which were spectacular, we couldn't be any happier with how they turned out. They got our 'champagne and cupcake picnic in the park' theme right away and got all the photo poses we wanted, including john even climbing a tree and throwing heart confetti all over us!

The wedding photos were even more gorgeous!! I was literally blown away by how beautiful they came out. The natural lighting they use is so perfect and brings the true natural beauty out in every photograph. Katie and John captured every magical moment, ones we didn't even know they got!
We especially loved our bride and groom photos on our vintage couch out in the garden, they made it look as good as a vogue photo shoot!

Catherine Ann Photography completely exceeded our expectations! Katie and John put such a personal touch on our wedding, we will even remain friends with them after all of this!
They are the sweetest people we've met, listened to every request we had and even dressed in the cutest vintage attire to fit the theme of our vintage, garden wedding.

Thank you Katie and John for capturing our special day and moments that we will cherish forever. It would not have been the same without you, we are forever grateful.

I highly recommend Catherine Ann Photography, i promise you won't regret it!!!

Kate and John are the most amazing people and photographers. I knew looking at their work and our engagement session that they were excellent at what they do, but looking at our wedding photos I was completely blown away! I was able to relive every moment of my wedding that had become a blur. There were aspects of the day I had missed due to all of the commotion, but they caught it. They caught every moment just perfectly and I cannot thank them enough for it. Every moment between Mike and I, details of our décor, the entrances of our family that we missed, etc. I am so incredibly thankful for these two people and their amazing talent.

Most people only get one shot to get their wedding day right. I like to think I'm part of that lucky group, and so I knew I had to have the best photographer for my wedding day. Katie packed her bags and joined me and my fiancé in picturesque New Orleans,LA. She managed to capture the mood and the unique flavor of the city while not missing a single detail in regards to our more intimate moments with friends and family. I'm so glad I chose Katie to join us not just the day of, but for the entire weekend- it really paid off! I would absolutely use her services again and would recommend her to all my friends and family!!

Katie and Jay were absolutely wonderful to work with!! I found them online while searching for natural light photographers in the Tampa Bay area, and instantly fell in love with their work. From the start, Katie was very responsive to all my emails and willing to answer any and everything I had questions about. The quality of work that she and Jay provide is beyond excellent! The photos they capture are raw and naturally stunning! Not only did we receive AMAZING wedding photos, but we gained 2 new friends in the process. I would use them for every event in my life, if I could. Just wonderful!
