About Catherine

Milwaukee WI wedding photography


It’s about telling the story of your day.  You spend so much time planning your day and making sure it’s something special, unique to you, and perfect-imperfections and all.  Why should your photography be any different?  Photography is about capturing those unique, real, joyful, and breathtaking moments that make the wedding day yours.  

If this sounds like your vision for your wedding day, send me a message!  Lets talk and see if we are a good fit.  If you’re not sure, see what some of my recent clients are saying at the bottom of the page, or keep reading for more information about me.

My name is Catherine and I live in Milwaukee and travel around Wisconsin shooting beautiful and individualistic weddings.  And while weddings are my specialty, I also love taking newborn photos, family portraits, and senior sessions.  I grew up in Ohio, my family is from England (one of my favorite places to travel!), and I now (proudly) live in Milwaukee, WI!  When I’m not working, a lot of my time is spent at UW-Milwaukee where my husband and I work as pastors. I love meeting new students, planning a Friday night event, or getting a cup of coffee with someone. I have a daughter (who is almost one and the cutest!), I love to run, and my guilty pleasure is homemade chocolate chip cookies, on the couch, under a blanket, with a cup of tea.

But back on topic- whatever your photography needs are, I would love to talk with you! I’d love to hear your thoughts and here you are envisioning!  And if you have no idea what you want, send me a message and I’ll help you figure it out.  Whatever you are looking for, Send me a message and let’s talk!

-Catherine Winkelman
