Cate graduated in 2006 with an Associate of Science in Professional Photography from McIntosh College. It is there where her passion for medium format photography first developed. This premium level of high-end photography is a service she still provides for all her weddings, elopements, and engagement sessions to this day.
Workshops are another way Cate has expanded her photography education. Creative and intensive, week-long photography workshops have been a constant presence in Cate's educational background and are planned into the future. What makes these workshops an important piece in her photography style, is the intention of growing her craft, learning the latest techniques, and networking with photographers around the world. These workshops encompass a variety of subjects like landscape techniques, wedding-specific intensives, and commercial/stock photography. She had attended The Maine Media Workshops in Camden, Maine and several at Rocky Mountain School of Photography in places like Missoula and Kalispell, Montana and Yellowstone National Park.
In 2015, Cate spent 9 weeks in Missoula, Montana at Rocky Mountain School of Photography and completed an Advanced Intensive photography program that covered all aspects of photography, from weddings to fashion to commercial and more.
I often describe my style as romantic storytelling. As a photographer who specializes in weddings and smaller elopement events, I try to connect with my couples in a way that helps them feel at ease in front of the camera. This allows them to relax and enjoy the day, moment by moment. From this point, I am able to capture the emotion and natural expressions as they happen. Yet, I also stress the importance of photographing a family together in a more formal way. I feel these types of images last far beyond the wedding and document who we are, and who your family is, at a specific second in time.
I am passionate about New Hampshire and I really enjoy working with couples who share a love for the beauty of my home state. Many of my clients talk of their memories of visiting the mountains or lakes with their families as children and their wish to maintain this legacy into adulthood with their partner. I cannot get enough of these stories! Your connection to New Hampshire is the same I feel when I look out my window every day and is 100% the reason I choose to work and live here. I cannot wait to hear about your connection and share with you some of the most amazing locations and venues for your photos.
