Asset 2

We’re Kristen and Joe Catoe and we love photographing weddings together. More than that though, we’re best friends and have been married for over 15 years. (How are we this old already?!)

Kristen is the lead photographer and the face of the business. As you chat with her you’ll find she’s deeply intentional in caring about you and your story. She has an artful eye as a published photographer and will build your confidence throughout the whole process. Our favorite weddings though are the ones we get to photograph together! Joe is keen for the most deeply candid moments. His love for people and attention to detail makes his photographs irreplaceable memories in your final gallery.
