Cat Pennenga Photography » Modern & authentic photography inspired by love!

Hi I’m Cat!

My heart

Hooray, I’m so happy you found me! A wedding photographer with a background in fashion and photojournalism, I am totally and unabashedly inspired by love. I get giddy over gorgeous details, sparkly things and beautiful light. My clients mean the world to me, and I am honored to document their day from the biggest moments to the most intimate and quiet times together. Inspired by each new couple, I love to find unique ways to create images that are romantic, authentic and stylish.Botanica_AboutPullQuote

My love for & fascination with people led me to photography and it drives me in my business every day. I have worked in publishing, fashion and academia but nothing inspires me more than two people in love. A Florida native with a bit of a gypsy soul, I married my best friend and settled in my hometown after living in 7 cities. I’m crazy about my wire-fox terrier Rufus, gummy bears and coffee, not necessarily in that order.

I want to know what my clients are crazy about and what inspires them! It is so important for me to connect with my couples, so they can trust me to capture their day and tell their unique story. As a wedding photographer I strive to provide more than just a service, but instead a custom, hands-on experience from start to finish.

My Process

Let’s meet! Relationships mean everything to me – with my family, friends and my clients! I love to hear your story and build a friendship so you can trust me with your most precious and exciting moments. We can chat over coffee, donuts or wine OR on the phone if you’re not local (coffee, donuts and wine can still be part of that!). I provide unlimited consultations to create a timeline that takes advantage of the best light, and keeps you and your loved ones relaxed on the big day. Once you decide to work with me (yay!) you will sign a contract and pay a retainer to confirm your date. You will always get me on your wedding day, I do not hire my weddings out! A couple months before the wedding, I will send a thorough worksheet so we are on the same page about your final locations and timelines & you can choose your specific portrait groupings so there is no stress on your happiest day. Then you live happily ever after!
