Catherine Rhodes Photography 
is simply the best!

Kelli and Grant

First of all, aside from her photography business, Catherine is one of the greatest people to be around. She knows how to make anyone feel comfortable and beautiful... which is essential to capturing great photos. She makes taking professional pictures easy and fun! Catherine has a talent and an eye for what will turn out to be an amazing collection of photos, all of which describe the couple well. We were more than impressed with all of our engagement and wedding photos, as were our friends and family. She's someone who LOVES what she does for a living and it shows. We have had more compliments than imaginable on our wedding photos, and that is all thanks to Catherine. 

Allison and Mike

We seriously had the BEST DAY EVER! Thank you so much for capturing our exciting day. We had so much fun. We got so many compliments on what a great photographer we had! Every single one of my bridesmaids said "she makes me feel like I look so good!". I was like ... "well you did!!!" Wow. It's so exciting. Thank you again Catherine (and to your fabulous team!). We are still on Cloud Nine!

Megan and David

Catherine is truly amazing at what she does. As soon as I got engaged, I knew I had to have Catherine as our photographer. She is professional, accommodating, and an absolute pro. She put my mind at ease leading up to our big day, helping me to put together a timeline and a list of “must have” pictures. I know my Mom really appreciated this too, knowing we would prioritize capturing all of the important family pictures and special moments. The day of the wedding, Catherine was such a calming presence! Not only did we have so much fun taking pictures, the final product was absolutely stunning. We get so many compliments on our beautiful pictures, all thanks to Catherine! Seriously, I could not recommend her highly enough—best choice we made while wedding planning.

Seriously, I could not recoMmend her highly enough, best choice we made while wedding planning.

I had seen her work from other friends of mine and knew from the get go we had to have her. Catherine was able to listen to what we wanted and made my now husband so comfortable. This is a man who can't take a serious picture to save his life and the pictures turned out amazing. We plan on hiring her again for our future family sessions and I have already recommended her to several friends who are all thrilled with their photos!!!  

Catherine made the stress of finding a wedding photographer non existent!

Mallory and Vann

Catherine Rhodes Photography exceeded our expectations for a wedding photographer.

Hillary and Derek

Catherine Rhodes Photography exceeded our expectations for a wedding photographer. Catherine is professional and a true artist who sincerely cared about who we really are as a couple. She guided us in a way that was natural and relaxed capturing beautiful moments we will be able to look back on forever.

Samantha and Caleb

We can't say enough good things about Catherine. She really was absolutely amazing and a perfect fit for our day. Not only was she super personable and friendly, but she was able to navigate our unique family dynamics with ease. We were afraid it would be awkward or insincere but Catherine has this magical ability to make anyone and everyone feel comfortable in their own skin. I loved her so much I wanted to invite her to our Christmas but my new husband felt that was inappropriate, hah! All in all, she was worth every penny. A photography wizard with the most delightful personality. 10/10; would recommend.

Taylor & Sam

From our first meeting, Sam and I knew that Catherine would be our perfect wedding photographer. We appreciated her organization, flexibility, and her genuine interest in getting to know us as a couple. On our wedding day, even though we were filled with excitement and nerves, we had absolutely NO worries about our photography. It meant so much that we were able to trust Catherine to capture all of our favorite memories of such a special day. She made us feel incredibly comfortable in our own skin, and she was able to capture our relationship in every photo. We couldn’t be more grateful to have worked with Catherine and her amazing team!

Having those memories is the greatest gift we could receive.

We had such a wonderful day thanks to you!

Taylor and Jared

I wanted to send over a quick note to THANK YOU for all your help throughout the wedding planning process. We had such a wonderful day thanks to you! You (Catherine and Trisha) made us feel so relaxed and captured all of the important moments throughout our day perfectly! Jared and I really appreciate you being apart of our special day and will definitely recommend your services to our family and friends. Thank you!

Ali and Jon

Working with Catherine was perfect. From first correspondence to receiving our photos after the wedding - everything was prompt, smooth, no stress, and the pictures are AMAZING. Catherine was a joy to work with. We were under a lot of stress planning our big day by ourselves, but we were able to count on Catherine to make sure we didn’t miss any special moments. Catherine made us feel comfortable and was excellent at giving prompts to make sure that everyone looked their best for the pictures. We feel so lucky that we found Catherine to capture our wedding! We could not be happier with our photos!

Cassie and Daniel

Working with Catherine was hands-down the best decision I made for my wedding day. A friend had told me about her photography and after looking at her website for a mere 2 minutes I just KNEW she was the one I wanted to capture our day. She was responsive, understanding of my ‘vision’, and always easy to get a hold of. On the day of, while I’m trying not to freak out or pass out, I would just look to her to know what was going on. No, she wasn’t my wedding coordinator, but she kept me on time, on schedule, and the pictures flowing. She is organized and very good at directing a room (which you REALLY need when it’s time for family photos).

My friends thought the pictures of my husband and I slow dancing were from a movie shot in the 40’s or something! 

We can’t recommend 
Catherine Rhodes Photography enough!     

Erin and Mike

We are so grateful we chose Catherine Rhodes Photography for our wedding day. Our photos are absolutely stunning, and we love getting the chance to relieve the day through these images. We were also surprised to see so many beautiful photos of our guests – it was so special after the day flew by in a flash to get to see our guests enjoying themselves, which was our number one priority! Catherine made us, our wedding party, and our guests feel comfortable being photographed, and the result is images that look natural and reflect the joy of the day.

Highly, highly recommended. Thank you for everything Catherine!!!

Christina and Dan

We hired Catherine to photograph our Maine camp wedding, and chose a package that also included an option for engagement photos, which she came to Boston to shoot. We can't say enough wonderful things about Catherine and her work, our engagement and wedding pictures are STUNNING!!!!! We were very particular about hiring a photographer, and we couldn't find anyone whose pictures compared to Catherine's. She did beautiful blog posts of both our engagement session and wedding, and the turnaround time to get our photos was very quick. 

Courtney and Kevin

Catherine was absolutely amazing to work with! Our wedding photos were one of our most favorite things about the entire wedding process! She was there every step of the way, constantly making herself available to help answer any questions we had about the process! Not only was she extremely professional and knowledgeable, but she was so creative and fun! She made Kevin and I feel at ease the entire time. Our wedding photos turned out beautiful and we could not imagine being any happier with the result. We would HIGHLY recommend Catherine and her team for your engagement and wedding photographer!

Not only was she extremely professional and knowledgeable, but she was so creative and fun!

Sara and Kevin

Catherine is the best. She is the perfect mix of professional and personal and her work is phenomenal. She's photographed three important family events for us (my brother's engagement, my engagement, and my wedding) and each time her work blows me away. I can't say enough about the quality of her work and how lovely she is as a person. She's the only photographer I want to work with moving forward to capture what our future brings.

She is the perfect mix of professional and personal and her work is phenomenal.

Olivia and Scott

Excuse me while I grab some tissues!!! Ugh catherine we're so incredibly lucky to have this experience documented in such a beautiful, memorable and professional way.

Excuse me while I grab the tissues...

Jenny and Paul

Aside from her flawless skills in photography, Catherine showed a true level of professionalism that was unmatched by any other photographer we had previously encountered. She made us and everyone that was a part of the wedding feel comfortable and natural. Never sacrificing detail, she worked diligently in weeks leading up to the wedding on our timeline , making sure she and her wonderful assistants were present to capture every moment. In the realm of wedding photography, there's Catherine Rhodes on top and then there's everyone else.

If Catherine is available for your wedding day you HAVE to book her!! She was by far one of my favorite wedding vendors! From the very beginning she was professional and so sweet and made me feel relaxed throughout the whole planning process. I knew I could trust her with the timeline and sticking to the plan we carefully crafted together. She really is a pro at the whole wedding thing!! Her work is beautiful, she truly has a gift! Catherine captured the beautiful little details throughout the day and I am so thankful I have our pictures to look back on. HIGHLY recommend!!! Thank you, Catherine!!
