Amazing Photographer and Experience!
I first met Caitlin at my friend’s wedding in 2016 and when I was looking for a photographer for my own wedding, I remembered her being friendly, helping the couple and family on the day, and the pictures being great, so we definitely decided to reach out to Caitlin. After meeting her in person, we knew without a doubt that we wanted her to be our photographer. She is extremely professional and helpful, making the entire process easy. While we were planning our wedding, Caitlin was easy to reach and was very responsive to any emails and questions that I had for her. She gave us advice about different shots and timing for things like our first look and family pictures that made the day easier and less stressful for us.
On our wedding day, I don’t know what I would have done without her! She was very organized and was aware of timing and our schedule, making the day go smooth. When I was putting on my dress, she helped give my sister and mother advice with the buttons that went along the back, gave me tips to relax and feel good in my dress, and helped me feel calm with her smile and calm presence. When it was time for our first look, Caitlin ensured that our wishes were followed and had no problem telling others who wanted to watch that it was a private thing. She was able to wrangle my family members and have all of the pictures go smoothly. When our ring bearers were crying and didn’t want to be in the pictures, she gave us tips and let one of the boys take a picture with her camera if he smiled in the picture! After the ceremony, Caitlin even bustled my dress for me!
It didn’t take long for us to get our wedding pictures back and we were so extremely happy with how they all came out! She did a great job editing the pictures and it was awesome that we are able to share our wedding gallery so family members can view and order prints themselves! Also, when we got our USB in the mail, it came with a handwritten note and our first framed picture as a gift from her! So sweet!
If you’re looking for an amazing, professional, and helpful photographer, Caitlin is your girl! I definitely recommend her and all of my family was raving about her after the wedding too! Rating 5/5
My husband and I strongly recommend hiring Caitlin Miller of Caitlin Miller Photography. This review will focus less on Caitlin’s outstanding photography skills and instead will explain why one of the toughest parts of our wedding day was having to say goodbye to her. The excellence of her work is clear on her website and is cited by many other reviewers. The pictures she took for our engagement and wedding are phenomenal and we have received so many compliments on them. We found Caitlin through a recommendation from another vendor, and I remember the first time we spoke with her. We had to use Skype because I was out of town on business. Before we hung up the phone, I told her that we would be in contact soon with a decision. We had already spoken with two other photographers and needed to choose. Within seconds of hanging up my fiancé called me and we both exclaimed, “She is our photographer, hands-down!” Within a week we had booked with her. I think what sold us that day was her warm and sunny personality mixed with a drive and clarity that we knew would be useful on a busy wedding day. During the initial call when we were unsure of a specific detail or plan, she did not put pressure on us to decide. She knew that this was the first time we had worked with a professional photographer and made sure to take the time to explain the details and answer our questions. We also felt that her packages and pricing were straightforward, and customizable. She made a stellar first impression.
Our engagement shoot occurred about 6 months later, and it went great. We selected a location that she had never shot at and that we hadn’t fully explored, and Caitlin was completely open (and excited) about it! We hit it off from the start, and at times got a bit preoccupied with chatting with Caitlin. Luckily she is flexible and allowed us to get through all our “must-have” photos. As with any couple the way people are positioned in photos matter, and as a same-sex couple that balance can be trickier to strike. Who sits higher on the hill, or wraps their arms around their partner from behind? Caitlin showed her expertise that day, and we ended up with photos that were diverse and that captured a range of emotions. The moment we saw those first photos from our shoot we knew we had made the best decision.
Fast-forward many months and our wedding day was upon us. As we neared the day communication from Caitlin was always efficient and clear. She prompted us to think about the structure and timing of our first look, to consider having an unplugged ceremony, and made sure to clear-up exactly how we would handle photos with our family. She also shared in our excitement about using smoke bombs to make a dramatic rainbow effect in some of our pre-ceremony photos. Every step of the way we could tell that Caitlin was passionate about her work and always willing to try new things. She made us feel special, even though we knew she had so many other couples that she was working with. The other thing that we appreciated was that she was willing to share her own ideas and opinions-we were so grateful for those and took many of them (she is the professional after all!). Photography on the day of our wedding was perfect, we had a second shooter as well, Carolyn, who was great. My husband and I agree that the best thing Caitlin brought to the day of our wedding was a clear plan (built based on our input) and the confidence to tell our guests, “Hi, sorry-I need the grooms to come with me.” In effect, making herself the “bad guy” in order to ensure we got all the right shots. Caitlin did an awesome job balancing our time with our guests with the importance of capturing the day. In no way did any guest ever have a bad reaction to this, but it was nice to not have to be the one to tell our guests we had to go. We would just point at Caitlin and say, “Oh, Caitlin needs us!” With so much pressure on you the day of your wedding, having this level of support is an absolute necessity. And, again, because Caitlin is so kind and warm-everyone who engaged with her walked away with a very favorable impression. In fact, many guests shared how impressed they were with her style and how unobtrusive she was throughout the event. She is just that good! And for all these reasons, my husband and I are not being overdramatic by stating that saying goodbye to Caitlin the end of the night was hard for us. Caitlin is an amazing photographer, and a great person. She will have your best interest at heart, and you too will be sad to say goodbye. Luckily, you get to continue to work with her after the big day. We are enjoying going through our wedding gallery and look forward to selecting final photos for our wedding album. Photos that capture my husband and I perfectly because Caitlin has the skills and took the time to invest herself into our wedding. Rating 5/5
While my wife’s biggest concern for our wedding was finding a great DJ, mine was the photographer. After searching for a couple of months, we came across Caitlin Miller Photography’s website and decided to reach out to her. Since my wife and I live in NJ, we Skyped with Caitlin. We were extremely impressed with her thoroughness and her bubbly personality and as soon as we got off of Skype, I turned to my wife and said “Caitlin is going to be our photographer!”
The entire process of working with Caitlin was so smooth. Whenever my wife and I had any questions Caitlin set up a phone call or answered back via email quickly. By the time our wedding day came, I knew the photography would be the least of my worries.
At the reception, we had numerous family and friends approach us saying how great Caitlin was – professional, easy to talk to and just all around amazing. Aside from her phenomenal photography skills, Caitlin knew how to help with additional things like helping pin boutonnières, bustled my wife’s dress, and even taught everyone how to to the wobble! We wanted to get a sunset picture and we weren’t sure if we would be able to due to the weather, but Caitlin went to go check the skyline every ten minutes for us. She went above and beyond that day!
Caitlin Was the only photographer at our wedding, and she took over a thousand pictures. The pictures we received came out amazing, and she captured everything! I am so happy with the decision to hire Caitlin Miller Photography and I HIGHLY recommend her.
I cannot say enough positive things about Caitlin! She is not only an amazing photographer but is essentially a day of coordinator, bustler, wedding godsend!
I make a lot of decisions based on the vibe I get from people. A friend of my mom recommended her and when I met her at the Saratoga bridal show, it was a no brainer. She is so sweet and has such a calm demeanor, which is exactly what I needed!
She made planning from long distance a breeze. She was available for video chats and any questions and also had great recommendations for other vendors. And every other vendor I spoke to throughout the process all spoke so highly of Caitlin and her sweet demeanor.
I didn’t have a wedding planner but for the day of, she was wonderful at making sure the bridal party and other people stuck to our timeline and everything flowed perfectly. It was extremely hot on my wedding day and she was so efficient at getting all of our first look and bridal party photos taken outside without us melting.
She also went above and beyond to help get my gown bustled right away.
She is so professional and got all the shots we wanted, but was so non intrusive during the reception and seemed to just blend in to the background. Photos were edited and we received a USB in the mail and link to the website within 2 1/2 weeks.
If you are like me, and get overwhelmed with all the vendor decisions you need to make, definitely start with booking Caitlin and go from there!
Caitlin was absolutely AMAZING! She is very easy to get ahold of through email and calling. She was even willing to do a FaceTime meeting in the beginning of planning to discuss her packages and what she has to offer. Caitlin answered any and all questions that we had as well as giving us her own professional input. She made sure that the day ran as smoothly as possible the day of the wedding! She knew our timeline by heart and made sure everyone was where they needed to be. Caitlin was very knowledgeable on the fundamentals of the wedding day (i.e. veil, boutonnières, bouquets, bustles, etc.).She knew exactly where to take us in Lake Placid for the most scenic and beautiful pictures! She was able to take us to three very scenic locations in Lake Placid prior to our cocktail hour. She made sure to take pictures of the reception, decorations, and any meaningful wedding related pieces. Caitlin ensured we got pictures with all our of family members and close friends. She was also able to take our ideas, adding her professional input to get the best picture. Caitlin originally told us our turn around time for our photos was 3-4 weeks; however, she was able to get them to use in less than two weeks after our wedding! Not only is she giving us our photos, but she is also having a meeting with us to discuss wall art, which includes getting pictures we have chosen framed or on a canvas positioned in the most perfect spots around our home. We have shared our photos with many of our guests, and there has been nothing but positive reviews. We have also had many couples ask us for Caitlin’s information for their future weddings. Highly, highly recommend!!
Worth every memory
From the first moment we walked up to her booth at a wedding show, my husband and I knew Caitlin was the wedding photographer for us. She is one of the most professional, calm and caring people, my husband and I have ever met. Not only did she offer incredible photo packages but she went out of her way to get to know us and our relationship. For our engagement shoot she traveled hours away from her studio to meet us at the top of a mountain where my husband and I had one of our first dates. We were nervous to begin with but working with Caitlin is natural and she makes stiff posing seem easy and unplanned. Communicating with her over email and text is quick and we always felt that she went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and assured.
When our wedding day came around Caitlin was a calm, level voice in the chaos (especially when dress malfunctions inevitably occurred!) and guided us every step of the way. Somehow, in all the bustle she managed to take amazing photos as well! Afterwards, the process of making our photo album and picking our wall art was so smooth and magical. Caitlin has great suggestions and we put our trust in her vision and design. We couldn’t be happier with the result!
It means so much to us to have our beautiful memories in print on our walls and because of Caitlin’s incredible talent and hard work, it is a reality. If we could do it again, we would not hesitate!
Great experience working with Caitlin, would recommend!
We worked with Caitlin for our June 2019 wedding and September 2018 engagement photos.
From start to finish she was a joy to work with — extremely helpful, professional, and always going the extra mile to explain the details we needed to know, and to figure out exactly what we liked and wanted. She was always ready to answer questions and always replied promptly to an email or call.
Our wedding was on a sunny day at the Inn at Erlowest. Caitlin immediately showed her experience and creativity in taking advantage of all the natural backdrops of the property and light of the day. Most importantly, neither of us is super comfortable in front of the camera, and she made us feel at ease.
After getting our pictures back a few weeks ago, we are still so happy with how they turned out. We already ordered some large canvases for the walls of our home and look forward to ordering copies for our friends and family.
Couldn’t have asked for better!
Caitlin was wonderful to work with. From the minute she got there, she made us feel calm and comfortable. She took care of every detail and captured every picture I wanted (even pictures I didn’t know I wanted!) She was patient, kind, and so easy to work with. Our pictures are stunning, and I am beyond happy we had the opportunity to have Caitlin as our photographer. Rating 5/5
