Hi! My name is Cathi and I am a Wedding Photographeroholic! What
does this mean you might ask? Pull up a chair and let me explain.
No, I did
not just go to my local camera store, purchase a camera and call myself a
photographer. I went to college, majored and graduated with a degree in
photography, with a focus on weddings. I have always been artistically inclined
and figured out early on that I wanted to do weddings. Weddings and weddings
only! I was excited at the thought of being at a party on the best day of
someone's life every time I went to work.
weekends everyone my age was partying while I chased down and interned my
favorite photographers in the area. I was willing to do anything from sweep the
floors, answer phones, billing to scheduling appointments in order to make sure
I had all of the necessary skills when I was ready to open my own business. I
probably cleaned a toilet or two. To be completely honest I do have a thing for
office work, organization (office supplies and post it notes are my thing),
production, and cleaning... so this did not feel like work at all. I still tell
myself it was much better than going to those parties I missed!
Here are some other things I love in addition to my love of photography:
- I have two adorable fat dogs named Kingston and Bronx. I found them in a box
on the street when they were just six weeks old. They have been such an amazing
blessing ever since.
- The artist in me loves to express my art in other ways; I am into interior
design, I love to paint, draw, walk the aisles of home decoration stores and
getting my hands dirty with a power drill! Cool chairs and frames are my weak
- Music is a pretty big deal to me. From the moment I wake up until I go
to sleep, I either have my phone, the radio in the bathroom or the Pandora on
my computer blasting. Yes, I have a karaoke machine and am currently taking
lessons on how to play my guitar.
- Being a big kid at heart, I love to stay
active and enjoy the sun on my free time. Rafting, biking through the
beltline, practicing my rookie golf swing at the range, playing pool or bowling
are some of my favorites. I am also a pretty big comedy club junkie.
