Laura + Alexander | Holy Trinity and Park Hyatt Wedding | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer

Laura + Alexander | Holy Trinity and Park Hyatt Wedding | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer
Today's wedding is one I had been highly anticipating for a while! When I first met Laura and Alexander at Northside Social (one of my favorite Arlington spots) we hit it off right away. Between Alexander's Parisian connections (he's spent a lot of time there, is fluent in French and OWNS a French bakery!), their easy-going attitudes and spot on Seattle res[...]

Film Photography From Our Pacific Northwest Trip | Washington D.C. Film Wedding Photographer

Film Photography From Our Pacific Northwest Trip | Washington D.C. Film Wedding Photographer
I've been trying to shoot more person film work recently. I've found that it really trains my creative mind and eye by forcing me to assess ideal composition and subject matter. I shoot medium format which means I only have 16 shots on a roll film...and by the time you get done with all the developing costs it works out to costing around $3 per shot you take. So needl[...]

Year 5 | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer | Valentine’s Day

Year 5 | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer | Valentine's Day
This love thing. I'm still trying to figure it out. I thought I knew it when I loved my first pet more than I thought possible. I thought I knew it when I felt loving feelings toward old boyfriends who did nice things for me. I thought I felt it when I said yes to Ben's marriage proposal, strung out on a high of emotions that I thought were genuine love. But now[...]

Moving Plans + Trusting the Journey! | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer
I have some big news for me, Ben and Camille Catherine Photography! This Spring we've decided to pack up, sell a lot of what we have and move back to downtown Boston!!! (At least for a few months!) We are SO excited about this upcoming change that will happen mid-June after Ben's Air Force commitment is finished. For those of you who don't know, we came to D.C. alm[...]

2017 Goals + Big Changes for CCP! | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer | International + Desination Photographer
One of my New Years resolutions for my business was to be more timely with blog posts...and it looks like I've already failed! Here it is January 10th and I'm finally getting around to thinking about 2016 and what I want this NEW year to look like. I have a defense though!!! Hear me out. I find the expectation that goal setting comes right at the new year to be [...]

Midweek Musings | Camille Catherine Photography Journal | Washington D.C. Wedding Photography
Happy New Year everyone! I know I'm a bit belated here but I BROKE my elbow over the Christmas holiday and have been a bit slow getting caught up on work and up to being a fully functioning member of society again. How did it happen? I know you're hoping for a cool story but I simply slipped on some black ice in Minneapolis while visiting Ben's family. Where I was GOI[...]

A 2016 Wedding Season Recap and Thank You | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer

A 2016 Wedding Season Recap and Thank You | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer
I can't believe 2016 has almost come to an official end. It seems like just yesterday I was photographing some of these weddings! I could never have dreamed that 2016 would have been so FULL. Full of amazing clients, learning and making new friendships with people I never would have met if not for Camille Catherine Photography. I want to take a minute to thank ever[...]

Amanda and Chadd | Westin Annapolis Wedding | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer

Amanda and Chadd | Westin Annapolis Wedding | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer
Amanda and Chadd are my kind of people. When they first booked me to photograph their Westin Annapolis wedding they let me know that they were laid-back and casual and didn't want a fussy engagement session. Instead they opted for something super natural and that reflected their personalities! Since both of them grew up around horses and riding they decided that doing[...]

Michelle and Barry | Morais Vineyards Wedding | Northern Virginia Wedding | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer
I feel in love with Michelle from our very first point of contact. The more I've gotten to know her over the past year or so the more I've gotten to know the specific qualities she possesses that make her such a wonderful person. Warm, considerate, fun, caring, stylish (check out the bow on that wedding dress!) and a lover of food (perhaps even on my level?) are all t[...]

Shannon and Zach | Governor Calvert House Annapolis Wedding | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer
  There's obviously something magical about the month leading up to Christmas. But throw in a wedding and a cute waterfront, historic town? You've got heaven. Zach and Shannon are such a sweet couple and I've been looking forward to their December Annapolis wedding at the historic Governor Calvert House for a while. I first met Zach and Shannon last spring [...]

4 Ways To Get More Wedding Inquiries | How to Grow Your Photography Business | Washington D.C. Wedding Photographer
Recently, I've been getting a lot of inquiries for coffee dates and mentoring sessions from people who want to start or grow their photography businesses. Sitting down with people to chat about this is one of my favorite things to do because I know the struggle. I'm by nature a skeptical person. I was skeptical I was ever going to be able to be a full time wedding pho[...]
