Catherine Rhodes Photography


Photography has always been a big part of my life. Growing up, my Dad had a camera in his hand every place our family visited from Florida to Hawaii it was always an adventure! At the age of 10, he gifted me my very first camera. After rolls and rolls of film with my Canon AE-1, I knew photography would have a long lasting spot in my heart. So I set out for school at Hallmark Institute of Photography and fell in love with weddings on a little horse farm in the middle of New Hampshire.

Now with over 200 weddings photographed and 14 years of experience I am happy to still say I love weddings just as much as I did during that very first event! Along with an amazing photography business, I am so happy to say that I'm married to my other half, Matthew. Experiencing an engagement and wedding for myself has been amazing and truly helps me relate to the wonderful couples and their individual love stories documented by my camera!

On top of all of that, I am Mama to the sweetest little boy around, Oliver! He is the light of my life and truly helps me see the importance of capturing these fleeting moments!  When I'm not spending time with my sweet family, I'm an avid traveler, foodie, and dog mom to an adorable pup! I can't begin to tell you how honored I feel to photograph these amazing days, the moments, the love, it's all very surreal to not only play witness to. but to document as a piece of your family history. 

Congratulations on your engagement once again, I absolutely look forward to getting to know both you and your fiance in the near future! Here's to those priceless moments we'll capture on your very special day!
