Client Testimonials & Love Notes 

Alex & Danielle M.

"Catherine was a wonderful photographer to have at our wedding. We had our wedding and reception outdoors on a sunny day surrounded by tons of trees which every photographer knows creates some challenges from a photography standpoint. This was not issue for Catherine, she worked dynamically with the given environment and captured every photo for what it was worth. She was able to capture the full emotion of all the candid moments and framed all the posed photography fantastically! She was also very fun and easy to work with, everyone felt natural and comfortable around her and vice-versa. I would highly recommend Catherine for anyone's wedding"

Erik & Christine J.

"We feel so lucky that we found Catherine and Robert to be our wedding photographers. They worked in perfect unison to capture our day in an amazing way. I was made very comfortable with them from the beginning, I felt that they were very thorough when it came to our meeting, I could see that they genuinely cared about our wedding pictures. They were very friendly at our wedding and our families really warmed up to them. But the best part by far was the quality of images we received. I still remember us receiving our digital gallery and crying, seeing our day from a new and creative perspective. Me and my husband are endlessly thankful for them being such an important part of our wedding experience!"

Dj Scott Fijolek

"I have worked with MANY photographers during 1,000+ weddings I have Produced/DJ'd over the years and Catherine and her partner were one of my MOST Favorite. They are Friendly, Always at the right place at the right time to capture amazing photos, they always had smiles on their faces!!! They were very talented, especially with getting the right lighting for the photos. I could EASILY see some of their photos show up on a cover of a magazine. They are professional, and I LOVED how they were able to get people to smile for a photo (even the people that don't usually smile for photos) From a DJ's point of view, they were SO FUN to work with, and we worked extremely well as a team together to make sure that the Bride & Groom had the BEST night of their lives and the BEST photos to remind them for the rest of their lives. I HIGHLY recommend Catherine Straume Photography!!"

Marel & Richard K.

"Catherine and Robert took photos at my wedding on September 15th 2012, we got married on the beach in front of a lighthouse and she really captured my day beautifully! Her and her husband made a great team and she was able to make my whole family and wedding party so comfortable during our portraits. I explained to her the style I was looking for and she really hit it out of the park! I remember looking back through the photos and re-living my special day all over again, it brought tears to my eyes. She has great rates and even more amazing results, worth every penny! I highly recommend Catherine Straume Photography to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. I can never thank you enough for those beautiful memories!"

"I couldn't have had a better experience! I had thousands of photos of everything! We chose not to video our special day.. and we didn't need to. Our photos create a beautiful timeline of our ENTIRE day! A gentleman photographer with the men and a lady photographer with the ladies. Truly captured the essence of family, romance and full family love! We also had our engagement session with Catherine... I can't say enough great things about Catherine Straume Photography! I will ONLY use her... and ONLY recommend her for every special event! My guests commented afterwards, "Man, that photographer was everywhere! " Awesome, friendly, comfortable, and SO talented! My first impression was... "shes young"... that's only because she was BORN with this talent! It's truly a passion and it definitely shows!"

Tiffany & Brady R.

"She did just an amazing job. I love all of my photos. Very responsive when getting back to me. Had photos to me in about a month and then did extra editing on our favorites and had those to us in a few weeks. Great personality and great style."

Ashlee & Nick D.

"Catherine was amazing!!! Listened to everything I wanted. Captured all the pictures I wanted and more. Made my wedding a true dream. Pictures are priceless and I was happy with every single picture she took. She even reminded me when my time was almost up and asked me if there were any pictures I wanted and make sure I had all the shots I had asked for. She even went the extra mile and blew up a picture of my Husband and I, as a wedding gift and gave us a wooden flash drive with a picture of our wedding rings engraved on it."
