Welcome, Friends!

Genuine . Quintessential . Joyful


Hi, I'm Catherine. A dog loving, horseback riding, southern girl who was raised on Chesapeake Bay Blue Crabs, North Carolina BBQ and classic rock, & fun fact: I only have one dimple. I recently moved across the country from Coastal Virginia to the gorgeous Columbia River Gorge in Washington State. When I'm not capturing the amazing bond between people and their horses, you can find me hanging out with my husband, Justin, and two bulldogs, Dozer & Axel, taking in all of the beauty around our new home, snuggled up on the couch  (with dogs in my lap) working hard on my laptop,  or trying to cook a new recipe I found on Pinterest...not because I love to cook, but because I love to eat!

"Catherine Crane Photography = Amazing. Catherine is unbelievably professional and talented. She has a vision and captures it! I couldn't be happier with the Senior Portraits she did for my daughter. Highly recommend her!"

"Catherine has such a great eye for seeing what the picture can capture. She knows how to bring out the personality of those she photographs! I would highly recommend her!"

"I am so pleased with the photos you did for us. I have told everyone I know about you and have shown them my pictures. Everyone loves them. And I positively love the flash drive and it's packaging. Very, very cool. When spring gets here I am going to have you come out and photograph me with my horses."

"These photos are one of my most prized possessions, When I moved and had to put my things in storage I refused to put my canvases in there, so now my mom's house looks like a shrine of us until my house is ready!! Can't thank you enough for doing these, I never knew just how much they would mean to me!"

"Catherine thank you so much for the fantastic photos you took for my son's deployment homecoming! You did a great job! We will absolutely recommend you to other military family members. And thank you and your husband for both of your sacrifices. God bless you both."

Catherine is by far the best photographer I have ever worked with. She captures every expression and her work is amazing!!!
