kind words from my couples:

"You're in great hands with a photographer that communicates well, shoots incredible images and is prompt with her delivery of final albums. It was so much fun to be on our honeymoon and go through our images... that's how fast she was! Caity is a girls' girl and is so fun to work with. I highly recommend Caity to brides looking for a top notch photographer!"

-Allie
a 2018 CKP Bride

"There were so many great things about working with CKP, but one of my favorites was that Caity was by my side for months leading up to the wedding. I'm a big planner, and she was always available to talk through logistics, answer my many questions, and stay more organized than I was! It helped to have someone who understood the importance of planning ahead to orchestrate a day that looks flawless, and when the big day came, I knew I didn't have to worry because Caity knew what to do."

-Megan
a 2018 CKP Bride

"My entire family RAVED about how fantastic everything was... I would love other brides to know that CKP has everything covered! If you decide to go with CKP, you can have peace of mind knowing that all of the bases would be covered and your wedding day will be flawless!"

-Molly 
a 2018 CKP Bride

"Hiring Caity was one of the best decisions that we made for our wedding. She was the most organized vendor we had BY FAR!! Thanks to her and her amazing attention to detail and thoughtfulness, our engagement session and wedding day were fun and relaxedThroughout our wedding planing, we learned you can't put a price on vendors like her. She was so amazing, and my bridesmaids and family repeatedly commented on how great and on top of it our photographer was."
