I've always been into classic art - I've spent many years studying painters and famous photographers, working on perfecting my storytelling skills wasting tons of disposable cameras as a kid. My parents realized this was something I should pursue and gifted me my first camera, a Nikon just like theirs. I grew up shooting black and white film in high school and continued my love into college at Texas State.
Each weekend I get the opportunity to be present for a single day in your life that cannot be re-created, an emotional turning point, a new chapter with loved ones. Weddings are a lot of work, and hiring a trusted and professional photographer to craft a visual story of your day is such an important decision.
For every single client, I work hard making sure photography is the most seamless part of the entire event. I put everything I have into making sure your day is covered without a moment missed. During the day I strive to work from an organic, documentary perspective. Being quietly present during important parts - as unobtrusive as possible - but taking a few moments for portraits of just the two of you. My clients love Austin, value art and hiring a professional to do the job, are creative minded, and live in the moment rather than worrying about outdated traditions.
My favorite things are simple. Black and white stripes, photos of candid moments, midcentury modern furniture, Texas wildflower bouquets and a good evening of laughter and wine with friends on patios strung with Christmas lights.
On your wedding you can expect me to be working from an organic, documentary perspective. I'll be quietly respectful and unobtrusive during important parts, but happy to join in the dance floor shenanigans. You can expect I'll deliver unique, bright, colorful images for you to enjoy for the rest of your life.
No other vendor spends as much time with you before, during and after the wedding as your photographer will. Make sure she's the right one for you. Caitlin McWeeney Photography is proudly LGBTQ+ friendly and welcomes all.
