Absolutely, I am still taking a few weddings a year! I love capturing authentic love and being around a group of people celebrating. That’s still something I’m passionate about! I’d be happy to send you galleries to look at.
I offer 6 sessions a month Sunday-Friday. Sunday’s book up FAST! Take a day off and pamper yourself. More than likely, you deserve it. I book 3 months in advance. I say book it now just to get yourself on the books. Right now, I’m booking for july-sept 2021.
Approximately two weeks after your session you’ll come back to the studio and you’ll see a slideshow of your images.. This is my favorite part. I step back and let you see YOU all the power and strength you showed off. I’m ALREADY SCREAMING FOR YOU!! YESS! All of our hard work curating these images that day come to life for you.
There is a $175 session fee to reserve your date. This includes 3 hours in the studio, hair, makeup, styling assistance, and ordering session. You’ll purchase your product approximately two weeks after your session.
Products range from $800 – $2300 with 'A la carte’ options starting at $145.
Cate Autumn Studios is located in Jackson, Michigan. The space has the most beautiful natural light that pours in and creates a dreamy atmosphere. The studio is on Cate’s property. It’s really beautiful during the warm months. You’ll come down the driveway and see green grass and gorgeous plants and flowers.
Honestly, I’m not even close to exaggerating here, wardrobe is not that crazy important the way that I shoot. Please don’t feel the need to run out and buy all the new things. I can do a completely versatile and awesome shoot with just a scarf, or the sheets, or sweater. Truly don’t stress about it. My style is “I’m not trying too hard - chic.” You may bring up to 4 outfits. Black, white, nude are great for black & white portraits.
#1 RULE: Do not show up in outfits you don’t love! Try everything on beforehand.
#2 RULE: Avoid crazy patterns, neon, or props.
# 3 RULE: If wearing thigh highs, purchase 1-2 sizes too big from the size chart on the back. Not kidding.
My theory is that part of loving yourself is loving your authentic body. We may remove non-permanent blemishes or imperfections, or even small scars upon request, but never edit out something that’s a permanent part of you. I do responsibly smooth skin and enhance your beautiful eyes.
