We had Cait do a family photo session for us and she was AMAZING. As a new mom to baby #3 I'm pretty self contious but she made me feel like I was a model. She was also so amazing with the 2 older kids and completely silly with them to get them to open up! I was blown away when we received our gallery and had a hard time choosing what one to print for our wall. 10 of 10 would recommend Cait to anyone.
Cait is the best! Truly! Fun, easy going and most importantly she was so patient with our daughter during family pictures. She worked around our schedule. When it came to wedding pictures she was willing to move from location to location, use props and most especially make us laugh, since I am the stiffest most awkward subject lol. She helped us relax and have fun!
We have the pictures she took of our family all over the house! Also shoots with her are just natural and fun. We have a little girl and nothing felt overly pushy and she was just so patient with our daughter and worked around her schedule. She's truly the best out there.
My fiancé and I got engaged this past December (2017) while we were both home visiting our family on Long Island. We wanted to get engagement pictures taken as soon as possible because she is still in college and I just graduated and am now in the military. That being said, to be able to plan a day to take pictures would be a pain in the butt with us living apart at the moment. My sister knows Cait and gave her a call for us and she hooked us up!! She drove out to us and took amazing pictures in below freezing temperatures right on the water...which means there was a wind chill that made it even colder! To take the pictures back home was really meaningful and the fact that Cait took the time for us meant a lot. She was fun, bright, and full of positivity and made the whole ice adventure worth every second. We are beyond happy with the results and would HIGHLY recommend her for any of your picture taking needs! Thanks again Cait!!
Cait was our intern at my job several years ago. I have followed her work since and have become increasingly impressed with her work. I had my work headshot taken by Cait. She was sweet, professional, and made us all feel super comfortable and beautiful. Highly recommend Cait to anyone who wants to have the whole package!
I had a wonderful experience using Cait McCarthy photography. I have always wanted to get professional photographs of my family but was shy about it, but on a whim I decided to try it. I was worried that my children would feel shy but Cait greeted us with a smile and even gave each kid a donut upon our arrival. We decided to have a family lifestyle and a portrait session done by Cait. She had a fun selection of music to play for my twelve and ten year old. They felt comfortable right away, and she was able to capture them smiling and interacting, ( no fake smiling pictures like I normally get). The kids actually enjoyed it. Cait has a nice studio that we had a blast in. My husband is an author, and asked Cait to take some shots of him and they came out very professional. After taking some beautiful family photos Cait told us that she had a special beach right by her house with a tidal pool. When we reached the beach Cait took beautiful pictures of my family. She even was able to capture the reflection of my daughter in the water. I will cherish these pictures forever and Cait was able to capture my family how we really are ( only better lol) Thanks again for a fun day. I am so glad that I used Cait McCarthy photography.
I cannot say enough great things about Cait McCarthy. She was the photographer at our daughter Amanda’s wedding on Sunday 6/17 & it was the best experience ever. I can honestly say that we are now members of The Cait McCarthy Fan Club! Cait is an old friend of our daughter’s from JHS so Amanda already knew her but then we saw her work & were very impressed. Not only is she very talented, but she also has a great sense of humor AND was able to put up with us! Thank you Cait for a wonderful day with you & the “sneak peak” you sent us of the wedding photos. We look forward to seeing ALL the photos in the near future. We would use you again in a heartbeat & will recommend you to everyone we know. Please do not hesitate to use us as a reference.
My entire experience with Cait was an absolute pleasure! She has a way about her that brings out the best in you- which is truly a GIFT when getting your photo taken. She’s upbeat, understanding, and blew past all expectations! I have versatile, fun, and classic shots that capture who I am + what I do- the perfect refresh that my business needed. Can’t wait to work with Cait again!
Cait photographed our wedding last summer, and her professionalism, creativity and flexibility captured the event beautifully. She made everyone feel so comfortable during the formal photos and caught our favorite moments from the reception. Not only is her work gorgeous, but she was a delight to work with. We cannot recommend her more highly.
Cait has photographed several of my events at Lincoln Center and always knocks it out of the park! Great with low light environments and capturing the spirit of the musicians!
We had an all around wonderful experience with Cait. We chose Stony Brook University for the shoot because it is where my husband and I met. Cait was very eager and excited to be on campus with us to help capture our family. She did a wonderful job choosing the right places/lighting/shots. Some of my favorites were the candid shots she was able to capture. You can really tell she loves what she does and definitely has the talent for it. We will cherish these photos and are so happy to have had the opportunity to work with her.
Cait is a very personable, friendly photographer who is very accommodating. She exudes confidence and skill in using natural light. Our photos were delivered professionally in a timely manner. Cait created beautiful photos of my husband and I for use in our creative business and captured our personalities well. We were impressed with the photos and are so excited to show them off! I don't think you will regret working with her, she's great!!
Doing a shoot with Cait was so much fun! Hands down the most comfortable I've ever felt with a photographer. She has a ton of experience in the acting world herself, so she knows how to get exactly what you are looking for look/type wise in a shoot. She also moves quickly with setting up shots and switching looks, so it doesn't take up your whole day...which is awesome. AND the lighting! Girl knows how to work with natural light. I can't recommend working with her enough- she is super understanding, accommodating, and straight up really good at what she does. SO happy with how my headshots turned out!
Cait is an excellent photographer! She has collaborated with my floral design company on several projects and we couldn't be happier with her work.
Cait is getting me booked! Her warm spirit and kind direction allowed for some amazing headshots to be birthed! She creates an environment YOU feel comfortable in. My shots are getting me into great rooms, what more can an actor ask for? All hail Cait the Great!
Cait is extremely talented and has a true gift. She captures the essence of who a person is within her images. I’m so excited to use my headshots for my business and I know this will elevate my brand to new heights!
Cait did such an amazing job photographing my son's baptism. Every single picture she took was a keeper. I am recommending her to my friends with small children and I can't wait to use her again! Absolutely wonderful work!
I was able to do a shoot with Cait at her home studio and it was such a fun experience. She had all the right equipment to bring my photos to life while also being a great host. Time flew!
I love working with Cait! She is such a warm and engaging person, which makes taking photos with her a walk in the park. She is always interested in what we (as the client) want out of the shoot and works with our ideas. Not only has she done headshots for me, but Cait has worked on creatives that have facilitated different looks that I use for my Acting website. She is extremely professional and considerate. Her studio space is very welcoming. I highly recommend Cait Mccarthy Photography.
