kristen catoe for Emma Dallman Photography


from kristen:

โ€œMy name is Kristen Catoe and I am utterly drawn to joy. Smiles, laughter, the giggles... of course! But honestly, I'm chiefly attracted to the mundane, hard work, daringly romantic, consciously chosen, diving in with both feet kind of sacrificial happy. The kind of joy you're striving for as you plan your wedding day. See, you and I both know that life is hard work and love doesn't always come easily. But there is such beauty and jovial-sing-song-magic when we pause life's chaos to gather each other up and savor the scope of all there is to be grateful for.

Maybe that's why I adore weddings so much and have saturated my life in them for over 15 years now, first in the event planning capacity and now as a photographer. On your wedding day I'll bring experience and knowledge and a whole lot of camera gear. But mostly, I'm there to be your biggest, third-wheeling cheerleader. Your wedding is about you and about your love. And it is nothing but a humbling honor to step into your world and beautifully seek out and document all that makes you both uniquely, wholly, simply you.โ€
