Hi, I'm Catherine.

I created Wild Bloom Photography to give modern brides and grooms wedding photography to match their aesthetic: modern, unfussy, and natural. I strive for a warm, comfortable atmosphere that lets you be in the moment with your partner. I specialize in queer weddings, but I love to work with all types of people and have shot all sorts of events: corporate parties with 1,000+ people, small non-profit fundraisers, large barn weddings, and City Hall elopements.

I’m a photographer with over a decade of professional experience in weddings, events, and portraits. I am also a commercial still life photographer who works with clients including Macy’s, Kate Spade, and Tory Burch. My home base is Brooklyn, New York and I shoot weddings in Minneapolis as well (my childhood home). I love to travel elsewhere too!

Testimonials

Catherine put everyone at ease, which allowed her to capture all the warm, natural moments we want to remember from a day that went very quickly. Catherine brought a creative eye for colour and composition. We now have a beautiful album of our happiest day, the kind of photos that make our friends ooh and aah, and where the city where we fell in love has a starring role. Catherine even managed to make it look like we were the only ones on Brooklyn Bridge, miraculously.

Catherine is creative and is extremely talented in her craft. When I share the photos, EVERY SINGLE PERSON comments on the beautiful photos. She captured our day perfectly, not just with the "usual" shots, but really captured our emotions throughout the wedding.

We knew how important it is to hire the right photographer for our wedding and we are so glad we chose Catherine. We met with a total of three photographers. After looking at their portfolios and interacting with them, we decided to go with Cat because her ability to capture details and emotions. And rolls in the big day, Cat and Jonica (our second shooter) were there every time we turn around, capturing every moment.

Catherine is truly amazing! She made every single moment of our day easy and was constantly making sure we were both ok during the day. She and the 2nd photog (Ackime!) made the day so fun and relaxing and I would recommend her to anyone looking for incredible photos that capture the essence of your relationship. Having been through it, I know it's stressful to spend money on vendors, but I truly felt services were worth every penny (beyond!).

Catherine is amazing! She was wonderful to work with: responsive, personable, open to our requests with wonderful, gentle direction at the same time. Neither my partner nor I identify as "photogenic" people, a concern we half-jokingly shared with Catherine, but we look amazing in her photographs. She really captured our wedding perfectly, finding quiet moments and shooting the highlights, too.

Throughout the process, Catherine was professional, kind, responsive and creative. She made us feel comfortable and calm throughout the portrait taking process, which can feel quite tedious after awhile. Another couple at our wedding booked Catherine for theirs because they really enjoyed her style and personality. The photos came out great, we all look so happy and serene.

The photography is beautiful - she has a very strong and unique perspective that really comes through in her photographs, and an ability to capture special moments that you had not even noticed. Her presence was calming and light, she made the process of taking the more formal photographs relaxed and fun. She is extremely professional in all her communications and made the process leading up to the wedding so easy, and was a pleasure to work with.

She was so pleasant to work with! She had many great ideas on photo opportunities as well as being open minded to our own. From her professional demeanor to the way she treated everyone of every age in my wedding party she handled everybody just perfectly and guided us when needed. Her candid shots are priceless as well as the TLC she puts into the final product. I would highly recommend her to anybody!

We could not have asked for more stunning photographs of the weekend – of our friends, our families, the scenery and the party. We could also not have asked for a more easy-going and understanding photographer. She has a very calming presence behind the camera, which is especially important and appreciated on a wedding day. She has an eye for particular moments; for capturing interactions that we were unable to witness or experience throughout that busy day. We would recommend her services 100 times over.

Just looked at our photos and thought about our experience. We can’t believe how lucky we got with Catherine. She was such a great photographer; nice, professional, and wonderful photos!

Catherine did an amazing job photographing our wedding! She is extremely professional and the photos came out beautifully! I look at them every day and smile. She really did a fantastic job at capturing so many moments, details and memories of our special day. She has an artistic eye for creating interesting shots and works super quickly.

On the day of the wedding Catherine was fantastic: warm, pleasant, professional while still being extremely personable, and somehow able to be present at every key moment without being even remotely intrusive. She was able to capture so many extraordinary candid shots—many of which we didn’t even know she was taking. The photos themselves are wonderful: artful, vibrant, and beautiful. We’ve received so many complements about them. We couldn’t be happier with the entire experience!

Catherine was my top choice for a photographer as soon as we met. She is very thorough, attentive, and creative, which were all very important to me in choosing a photographer for our wedding. Everyone raved about her and the photos we have received are more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone planning a wedding!!
