The Wedding Experience

I am the jumpsuit wearing, coffee binging, laughing, crazy haired, smiling face behind the camera capturing all the beautiful, bold,  romantic, and timeless images throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota.
I truly love capturing weddings with big, fun, and wild families and friends. We're a family of 7 (5 kids is crazy- we know but we always dreamed of a big family and truly love the joyful chaos) and know how important friends and family are during your big day. I value your memories and I will always prioritize our couples having amazing images AND enjoying their wedding day. This means creating a timeline so all of my couples join and enjoy their cocktail hour! I know my couples, I know what shots they want, and I know how to get those incredible images quickly so RJP couples get back to what really matters-- their friends and family. I don't want to brag but our clients love us because we know how to make them laugh, we prioritize them and their day, and they know they'll get amazing images.

The big day!

We meet two months prior to your big day to finalize details, create a timeline, and finish up the family list. Then I arrive and start capturing all the details, memories, and moments and you get to relax and know that I have everything taken care of and you get to live in the moment... with your friends and family... and cherish every single second of your dream wedding.

"Cait and Elliott were incredible! Do not hesitate to book this girl! Cait answered every email and she helped me plan a timeline and our day was perfect because of the extra love and support they gave us!"
— Nicole & Justin

"Do not hesitate to book this girl! Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without her."

I can’t recommend Cait and her work enough. If you are looking for a photographer, you’ve found the best!! My fiancé doesn’t like smiling, and it’s difficult for us to get good pictures, but she had us both comfortable the entire day!
-Britney

"she can capture your most whimsical and unposed moments with grace."

Cait is so amazing! She responded to my emails and texts right away and it felt more like I was asking a friend for advice rather than hiring a photographer. Cait will take all of our family photos and I cannot recommend her enough!! I am so thankful I found her!
-Becky

"I thought I would hate getting my photo taken, but CAIT made it fun!"

Wedding Schedule

I book 12 months+ out but you can check my availability on the calendar page. I only book a max of 15 weddings a year so I am able to give each and every bride the attention and support they deserve! 

how far in advance do i need to book you for my wedding?

All of my weddings are guaranteed online gallery delivery within 4 weeks; with most being wedding being completed within 2 weeks. 

how long will it take to get our photos delivered?

I always tell people its YOUR day so do what you want! Can a first look make the timeline flow a little smoother? Yes. But if you want that once in a lifetime altar moment, we make that happen and we just arrange the timeline around to fit it. I have shot so many wedding with and without first looks that it honestly is what you want your day to be. 

Do you recommend a "first look" on the wedding day?

I recommend at least 8 hours but if you are having any special exits or moments (like fireworks) 10 hours is a better fit for you. 

how many hours should we set aside for wedding photos?

Absolutely! Shoot me an email. I am a big believer in collaboration and what you give out you get back. So, I am always willing to help! 

Do you offer any consulting for other photographers?

I do not do corporate events at this time. 

Do you photograph corporate events?

I love and live in Glenwood City, WI! It's this amazing small town, in the middle of no where, that we get to call home. 

I know you travel, but where is your home base?

Not every image. I take a lot of duplicates and I always tend to catch a few with their eyes shut; but, beyond those blooper shots I edit and deliver every keeper image. So, many of my brides end up with over 900 images in their wedding day gallery! 

Do you deliver every image from our wedding?
