Catherine came highly recommended by friends, and we’re so glad that she could shoot our City Hall wedding on very short notice. She was professional, organised, sweet and fun. Catherine put everyone at ease, which allowed her to capture all the warm, natural moments we want to remember from a day that went very quickly. Catherine was super efficient at getting pictures of all the family configurations we needed, and brought a creative eye for color and composition. We now have a beautiful album of our happiest day, the kind of photos that make our friends ooh and aah, and where the city where we fell in love has a starring role. Catherine even managed to make it look like we were the only ones on Brooklyn Bridge, miraculously. If you want to look like a rock star, you won’t regret having Catherine photograph your wedding or special occasion!

Catherine from Wild Bloom Photography was fabulous—better than we could have imagined! She consulted with us in advance and answered all our questions promptly and thoroughly, accommodated particular requests and concerns, and was extremely communicative and responsive in advance of the wedding date. On the day of the wedding she was fantastic: warm, pleasant, professional while still being extremely personable, and somehow able to be present at every key moment without being even remotely intrusive. She deftly handled the (very large) family portraits we requested, and was able to round up and instruct people for big group shots while still keeping the mood jovial. For the posed pictures of the two of us (which we both thought we’d hate doing) she helped put us at ease, and made the process very enjoyable. In addition, she was able to capture so many extraordinary candid shots—many of which we didn’t even know she was taking. The photos themselves are wonderful: artful, vibrant, and beautiful. We’ve received so many complements about them. We couldn’t be happier with the entire experience!

Catherine is amazing! We hired her to photograph our wedding based on a great review from a friend whose wedding she also photographed. She was wonderful to work with: responsive, personable, open to our requests with wonderful, gentle direction at the same time. Neither my partner nor I identify as “photogenic” people, a concern we half-jokingly shared with Catherine, but we look amazing in her photographs. She really captured our wedding perfectly, finding quiet moments and shooting the highlights, too. Never having been photographed professionally before, I was a little worried it would be uncomfortable, but Catherine made it all feel easy. My partner and I both recommend her without hesitation. Thank you, Catherine!

Wow! Catherine is amazing. She photographed our recent March 2015 wedding at the River Café in Brooklyn and we were just in awe of how Catherine works. She has such a calm and sweet disposition but she is in ultimate control of the room and the setting. Everything around us seemed to be chaotic, but she was able to reel everyone in and get the composed shots we wanted. My husband and I wanted mostly candid shots because we just think they are more fun and I am very uncomfortable in front of a camera. She blended into the background and I almost never knew she was taking photos. Within days she sent me a link to some of our photos and they were gorgeous. Catherine was recommended by my cousin and we’re so happy we went with her. We highly recommend Catherine as a photographer. Just amazing.

Catherine photographed our wedding celebration in May 2014. She was a delight to work with. I mentioned to her that my partner and I are not very fond of having our picture taken. From the beginning she set us right at ease and made us very comfortable. She took great shots before and during the event, both inside and outside. In reviewing the photos when we got them, it was amazing to see all that she had captured that we were unaware of (and so happy that she did). Our guests remarked how wonderful and unobtrusive she was. We couldn’t have been happier to have Catherine photograph our big day, and we recommend her highly and without hesitation!

We were lucky enough to have Catherine be our wedding photographer. We are from Denver, and were married in New York City (Central Park). I was a little bit nervous handling everything by phone, but Catherine made everything very easy. We spent some time by phone before the wedding, so I could let her know about some specific photos that I wanted. She was very responsive and understanding of our needs. She came to our hotel while we were preparing for the ceremony and was very easy to be around. Catherine is creative and is extremely talented in her craft. She was able to provide several photos we could share immediately, while she edited other photos. When I share the photos, EVERY SINGLE PERSON comments on the beautiful photos. She captured our day perfectly, not just with the “usual” shots, but really captured our emotions throughout the wedding. I would HIGHLY recommend Catherine to be your photographer. You will not be disappointed!

Catherine Hunsburger did such a wonderful job capturing our October wedding in Manhattan. Throughout the process, she was professional, kind, responsive and creative. She made us feel comfortable and calm throughout the portrait taking process, which can feel quite tedious after awhile. Another couple at our wedding booked Catherine for theirs because they really enjoyed her style and personality. The photos came out great, we all look so happy and serene. I definitely recommend Catherine!!!

Catherine photographed our wedding July 2014. She was so pleasant to work with! She had many great ideas on photo opportunities as well as being open minded to our own. From her professional demeanor to the way she treated everyone of every age in my wedding party she handled everybody just perfectly and guided us when needed. Her candid shots are priceless as well as the TLC she puts into the final product. I would highly recommend her to anybody!

Catherine photographed our wedding in Maine and captured every wonderful moment in full. We could not have asked for more stunning photographs of the weekend – of our friends, our families, the scenery and the party. We could also not have asked for a more easy-going and understanding photographer. She has a very calming presence behind the camera, which is especially important and appreciated on a wedding day. She has an eye for particular moments; for capturing interactions that we were unable to witness or experience throughout that busy day. We would recommend her services 100 times over to anyone who is looking to capture the timeless beauty of any special occasion, especially weddings! There is a reason why the reviews are so good – because we have seen the truth of her talent!

My husband and I are from Texas and were planning a destination wedding in New York. We selected Catherine due to what appeared to be her eye for capturing the moment and while preserving the reality of the image. She is very nice and has a personality that instantly puts you at ease and lets you know to enjoy the moment. She guided us through several shots around the church with and without some of our gathered guests and the outcome was simply beautiful. Overall, we were very impressed with her professionalism and the quality of the end product.

Just looked at our photos and thought about our experience. We can’t believe how lucky we got with Catherine. She was such a great photographer; nice, professional, and wonderful photos!

Catherine photographed my wedding. Her photography is beautiful – she has a very strong and unique perspective that really comes through in her photographs, and an ability to capture special moments that you had not even noticed. Her presence was calming and light, she made the process of taking the more formal photographs relaxed and fun. She is extremely professional in all her communications and was early to my event. She made the process leading up to the wedding so easy, and was a pleasure to work with. I can recommend her without any reservations!
-Lauren & Pei
Our photographer, Catherine, was on time, delightful to work with and provided awesome photos. She made our big day less stressful and captured it beautifully. Plus the price was great, especially for the quality. We would highly recommend!

Catherine did an amazing job photographing our wedding! She is extremely professional and the photos came out beautifully! I look at them every day and smile. She really did a fantastic job at capturing so many moments, details and memories of our special day. She has an artistic eye for creating interesting shots and works super quickly. I would highly recommend her work!

I hired Catherine to photograph my wedding. From our very first meeting she made my wife and I feel relaxed, comfortable and confident in her abilities. She listened to our photography ideas and wishes, asked incisive questions and gave us all the time we needed. Her prices were very competitive. On the big day, she arrived promptly and got us through the ‘formal’ family portraits quickly and painlessly. She and her assistant captured every aspect of our beautiful ceremony, the space, the guests, the food, the decorations, etc. Catherine took lots of great photos of us and our guests looking great, having fun, and yet we never felt hassled or that she was in our way. The photo files were delivered right on time and as agreed upon. My wife and I and our families were thrilled with both the quantity and quality of the photos, and the naturalness and sense of fun and friendship she captured. I would definitely recommend her.
