Tiffany and Tony. Where do I even begin with such a whole-hearted and loving couple?! These two are the embodiment of devotion. These two LOVE their families, so much so that they celebrated their adorable nephew’s 1st birthday at their wedding celebration with a cake smash!

So this is Part III of my WPPI 2018 series. You can read more about my adventures in Part I and Part II, where I talk about how to survive and the different kinds of classes and events that go on for any photogs that are new or anyone thinking they want to take the dive and go!  Last year, I heard talk of events going on, outside of what WPPI offers, called "shootouts." These are basically styled shoots that are flawlessly designed and executed by a host, in this case Julie Paisley, who is an AMAZING film photographer and I want to be her when I grow up. So shootouts are styled events hos ..read more

Dani and Nick are from Chicago, but have a deep deep love for Southern California, so they knew they wanted to incorporate all the beauty we have to offer into their engagement photos! On our planning call they just couldn’t decide between a vineyard or the beach, so I said, “Why not both?!” One of the great things about San Diego, is you can get from sprawling hillsides to the beach in 30 minutes, cause we have it all! We started their engagement session with a romantic, carb and wine filled afternoon at the picturesque Cordiano Winery, nestled in the hills of Highland Valley in North County ..read more

  You hear about “associate photographer” when the photographer you want to book for your wedding is unavailable, or maybe their package is out of your budget. They referred you to their associate photographers. So what even are “associate photographers”? Although associate photographers have been around for a long time, we understand it is a new concept to you. This can cause a lot of confusions and fears. You are afraid they are inexperienced, not as good as the main photographer. Their prices are usually lower than the main photographer, which makes you believe even more that they are ..read more

Boy meets girl at party. Boy likes girl. Girl tells boy to stop talking and just kiss her already. And that’s the “meet cute” story of this incredible duo. Susan and Jeff are both in the fast paced exciting world of film and tv, with Susan being a kick-ass publicist for Disney and Jeff, a show writer! We really wanted to brainstorm the perfect location for their engagement session, since their free time together is a precious commodity with the demands of their careers to consider.

How Many Hours of Photography Coverage Do We Need for Our Wedding?
Cate Bachelor Photography
by cate batchelor
8M ago
You hear this question and you start to sweat. I get it. It’s a bit daunting to hire a photographer when you don’t know what you actually need. Are 8 hours of coverage enough to photograph your wedding day? Or do you need closer to 10 hours? Could I really need 12 hours (yes. some clients do!). The amount of photography coverage you need for your wedding affects who you can hire because it affects your total photography budget. So how many hours do YOU need? Every wedding day is totally different, however, most couples need between 8 – 10 hours of photography coverage to make sure the getting ..read more

Deep Breathe Hokay…so…2020. Wow, a lot to unpack there. When ‘The Rona’ hit the world, couples and wedding vendors alike were left dumbstruck and scrambling to navigate the unprecedented Force Majeure sweeping the nation, shutting everything down in its wake. In March, just a few weeks before their April wedding day, Hannah, Bryan and I sat down to virtually meet with each other over Zoom (a novelty that would soon lose it’s flavor) to discuss WTF do we do now? We sat in shocked silence at first, just staring at each other in disbelief through the computer screen. Hadn’t we JUST met up for dri ..read more
