Engagement Photography

Planned a surprise proposal for the girlfriend (Fyi: not easy to do). Cathy was absolutely amazing with everything from helping me find locations to finalizing one and suggesting spots and configurations and arriving well before time to make sure she's at the perfect spot and hidden in plain sight! My girlfriend had no idea that she was being clicked the whole time. The pictures ended up being superb as well and were delivered to us on time and with a personalized link we could share with our loved ones. We had her puppy grace the occasion and made the engagement worth way more! 100% recommended

I couldn't have asked for anything more from Cathy! She is talented, thoughtful and overall a joy to work with. She was helpful in providing me with suggestions on when, where and how to get the perfect shot for my proposal. She was on-time to the location and then we had an enjoyable session with her, taking photos in a few different spots. On top of everything, she was able to share the photos with us digitally later in the same day so we could send them to our friends & family. We are so glad to have had the opportunity to work with Cathy and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a talented photographer to capture beautiful moments & memories.

Cathy is amazing! We hired her for a family photo session at an outdoor location. She chose some great spots within the park, and produced beautiful photos of me, my wife, and my baby. My wife was extremely happy with the results, and she's usually a tough one to please. Cathy was very responsive and communicative throughout the whole process, had very fair pricing, and was just a pleasure to work with since she's such a nice, sweet person. I highly recommend her for all your photography needs!

Cathy was so easy to work with and made the shoot super fun for us. She even brought a blanket for me to wrap myself in between photos since it was a little chilly. Such a wonderful experience and we are in love with all the photos.

We have not been able to take our photos due to illness but Cathy has been so great and patient. We are looking forward to our session hopefully by the end of this year or early next year.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Standard pricing for portraits is $275 per hour. Weddings are priced differently so please message me for packages and custom pricing.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My typical process includes a lot of communication! I typically like to send out my calendar to the potential client so they can get a good understanding of my availability. Once they have settled on a date, I send them a questionnaire to learn more about their expectations and get to know them better. A booking proposal will be sent afterward where the contract is signed a retainer fee is paid. The client can choose the location if they wish, or I can always give suggestions to popular spots based on what they are looking for.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Coming from Sacramento, there were not many sights to see. Once I moved to San Francisco, there were so many different sights and beautiful spaces that I started to want to capture them all. I started off doing landscape but always felt something was missing. People! I then picked up some weddings and started doing portraits and it just gained traction slowly but surely ever since.
