        ABOUT US

        Inspired by classical art, dramatic lighting and simple moments. The team at CDP always treats weddings like a story, one they capture with an artistic and documentary edge. With moody black-and-whites and bold colors we strive to create the most honest representation of what happened throughout the wedding day. We are all about looking at weddings differently - that means working with clients who start new traditions for their wedding. We don't just focus on the big moments, we know how important the small ones are going to be years down the line.

        Ashley Barrett

        Lead Photographer / Owner

        Caitlin has been shooting weddings for seven years now and she couldn't love it more. She is a hybrid photographer. She opened CDP four years ago and has shot over 100 stunning weddings since. She's inspired by light, classical art and vintage film photos.

        She loves traveling, riding bikes, and going to record stores. When she's not shooting she's hanging out with her dogs, guinea pigs and horses.

        Film Photographer

        Nick has been shooting film since 2014. His primary cameras are a Nikkormat FTn, Yashica T4 and a Mamyia 645. When he’s not shooting he’s usually listening to records, spending time with his two dogs, and cooking vegan food.

        Nick has a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science and a master’s in Nonprofit Management. His interest in nature influences his work and is always a source of inspiration.

        Lead Photographer

        Ashley is an incredible photographer- she's been shooting for over 10 years, ever since she got her first point-and-shoot Kodak camera when she was 16. She captures your memories and life events with care and honesty,

        Her philosophy "These are your moments. I just get the privilege of documenting them for you. I promise that if you put your trust in me, I'll do everything I can to capture your memories with attention to beauty and light."
