“If you’re looking at this you know there are a thousand photographers in the area; stop looking immediately and hire Caitlin Thomas Photography! I was overwhelmed with choices, but we knew right after meeting with Caitlin that she was it. Her work (and her associate’s work) speaks for itself. They know exactly what they are doing and will make sure you get beautiful and polished but natural looking photos. We got so many compliments about our photos and how amazing they looked.

In addition to talent, Caitlin and the other girls are just super nice, helpful, and comfortable to be around. You won’t feel awkward having your pictures taken. It’s like being around a friend who just happens to have a camera. Caitlin also helped me answer some non-photo related wedding questions so everything could run as smoothly as possible.

I whole-heartedly recommend this photographer. Photos are one of the most important aspects of the wedding, and you will be so happy with this choice!”

“After our first meeting with Caitlin, we knew she was perfect for our day! We had a blast with her during our engagement shoot and she had great recommendations on locations around the city! Caitlin and Jennie were our shooters for the wedding, and they were so much fun! It is like you are hanging out with friends, not vendors. They were very professional and took absolutely AMAZING photos. When our wedding was running late, they even stayed longer to make sure they got all the shots. I usually don’t like photos of myself, but truly love EVERY SINGLE PHOTO that she took on our day! I would recommend her to anyone! She captured our day perfectly!”

“Caitlin was so accommodating during the planning process, regularly emailing and skyping with us to plan out our wedding day. We met with her in person the week before the wedding and she really put all of fears at ease. We talked through the general photography plan, she suggested locations for our first look and group pictures and even made sure we had a contingency plan in the event of rain. On the day of, Caitlin and her second shooter Jennie were ultimate professionals. From the minute she arrived at the bridal suite she put everyone at ease and fit in like we had been lifelong friends. I have to admit that I was a bit concerned about being awkward in front of the camera but she was so impressive and really made it all feel effortless. Not only that, she was extremely sweet in her instructions and worked with great speed so that we weren’t all standing around unnecessarily while she thought through next steps. Once the entire wedding party was together, Caitlin totally let us dictate where we wanted to go to ensure that we got all the pictures we wanted and when we were out of suggestions she let her creative genius guide! I absolutely love the way out urban pictures turned out and am so thankful that they aren’t your typical awkward, forced wedding photos. Caitlin did an incredible job capturing candid shots that genuinely evoke so much emotion without being cheesy. I will also say that she was incredibly accommodating during our family photos. I have a large, at times unruly family and she was able to get all our requested family shots done quickly and painlessly! She continued to check in with me throughout the night to make sure she was getting everything I wanted and had a sneak peek of our pics up just a few days after the wedding. We received our full online gallery in less than 3 weeks. I’ve received non-stop compliments about how beautiful our photos are!! I wholeheartedly recommend her!”

“After Caitlin photographed a friend of mine’s wedding a few years ago, I knew that I wanted her to shoot my wedding as well! It was one of our best wedding-planning decisions! Caitlin and Sam were extremely professional and easy to get along with. We planned our wedding from out of state, and it was so easy to get in touch with Caitlin via email or phone/skype during planning. Since my husband and I are shy, we were worried about feeling awkward in front of the camera but Caitlin made us feel so at ease during our engagement and wedding photos. On the wedding day, we didn’t have many specific shots in mind and we just trusted her to photograph our day and it was amazing! They were so fun to hang out with too. I LOVE the photos, and we have received so many compliments from our guests, many who have said they are the best wedding photos they’ve ever seen! The best compliment comes from my husband, who said the photos make our wedding look even more beautiful than we remember it ☺”

“I am so happy that I decided to use Caitlin Thomas Photography for my wedding. From our first conversation, I knew Caitlin and Jennie were fantastic. My husband and I planned our wedding from out of town in 4 months, so we certainly were not the easiest clients to work with, but Caitlin and Jennie were amazing. They were so flexible and even met with us over Google video chat, since I could not make it to Pittsburgh. We had the pleasure of having associate photographer Jennifer shoot our engagement and wedding photos. She was absolutely fantastic! It truly felt as though one of our long time friends was photographing our wedding. She arrived on time, was very professional (even though I was running behind schedule), and flexible when I added on additional family photos the day of the wedding. She dealt with my overbearing family and kept everything moving smoothly. She kept me calm and even when a guest accidentally spilled red wine on my train during cocktail hour. Jennie captured the most beautiful moments of my husband and I’s special day, and we are so grateful for that. Our wedding photos were finished in about 1 week! The photos are more beautiful than I could imagine and the editing was flawless (there is no sign of any red wine on my wedding dress!). My family and I are so impressed by the quality and quantity of the wedding photos. I am so happy that I chose Caitlin and Jennie for my wedding photography. I am excited to have another big life event just so they can photograph it! I have already recommended them to my friends getting married next year.”

“I cannot say enough about how wonderful Caitlin was to work with for our engagement and wedding photos. Caitlin is cheerful, exceptionally responsive and a calming presence in the most whirlwind of times. She never made us feel like a burden when we changed schedules or changed our minds on the pictures we wanted, but was also assertive enough to provide her professional opinion when necessary (like making us take a few engagement shots outside on the street when rain derailed initial plans – shots that became some of our favorites). She and her assistant Sam have a style that is both beautiful and photojournalistic, capturing amazing candid moments in secret throughout the wedding day. Caitlin then went above and beyond the call of duty to take pictures of our venue after the day, including one amazing (but somewhat harrowing) pic from a rooftop ladder, because we had mentioned we wanted some venue pics. A good photographer is essential to your wedding experience, both in capturing the day and making you feel comfortable with being thrown into the center of attention, and Caitlin knocked both out of the park. Thank you for everything Caitlin

“I had been following Caitlin’s work for a few years before getting engaged and KNEW I wanted her as my wedding photographer. Needless to say, Caitlin was the first vendor my husband and I booked for our wedding. From our first meeting to the wedding day, Caitlin was a DREAM to work with. Our engagement session was so much fun – Caitlin hopped in our car and we traveled around Oakland (with our dog) and had the best time. The photos (especially of our pup with my engagement ring on his nose) turned out incredible. Fast forward to the wedding day – Caitlin and Sam (second shooter) were the best – they fit right with our family and friends! They truly captured our day perfectly – when I saw the photos for the first time, I cried. I am still speechless. A side from being a rock star photographer, she is a truly genuine person who I am honored to now call a friend. Thanks so much Caitlin!!”

“Choosing Caitlin Thomas Photography was one of the best decisions I made in my wedding planning process. I am literally OBSESSED with my pictures. She has a very easy going personality that makes you feel like she’s just a friend hanging out with you that happens to take awesome pictures. Caitlin and her assistant Sam were with us on our wedding day and they were so amazing. They got all of the shots that I asked for but some of my favorite ones are when she caught little moments that have so much meaning and would have been otherwise unnoticed. They were a joy to work with that day and helped me feel so relaxed and calm. Her beautiful pictures and endless positive reviews speak for themselves and I will definitely keep her in mind for future photography needs–she does family pictures too! :)”
