A FRESH APPROACH TO ROMANTIC WEDDING IMAGERY
ADVENTURE SEEKER WITH A FLAIR FOR
ARTISTIC WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
I love the connection people have with photos. We all collectively recognize the importance and value of preserving pieces of time. It's always for that same reason why any of us pick up a camera.
When I photograph someone, I feel a sense of connection to their lives. I am given a window view into their world, and it's a true sentiment of trust that is shared between us.
Being granted a place on the shelves of time, framed by multiple generations is a concept that I can only describe with goosebumps. It's the reason I love being behind the camera.

MY FINAL IMAGE SET IS A FUSION OF
SPONTANEOUS AND PURPOSEFUL PIECES
THAT FEEL NATURAL & AUTHENTIC
My approach is deeply rooted in my Fine Arts background. In each environment, I study composition and textures, and am constantly tracking the quality of light for it's sublime ability to affect the viewer. I appreciate many different styles of photography, but am drawn to high-contrast images, allowing the shadows to describe the setting as much as the light does.
Yet, photography is so much more than lining up the technical aspects with the artistic esthetics. Much of my instincts as a photographer come from an ability to read a room and understanding how to influence a meaningful moment with subtlety and creative finesse. I believe in encouraging your unique rhythm and feel it is the key to photos that truly shine.
"I am LIVING for these photos!!! The highlight film, the photos, I’m obsessed with all of it!! You did an amazing job, and I am SO grateful that we had the opportunity to work with you!! Thank you a million times!"
"Cassandra captured our wedding day like no one else could have. Everything was so genuine and easy. Cassandra has an incredible talent, and she makes the experience fun."
"We are OBSESSED with every photo you sent us! I truly don't think that I could have asked for anything more. Thank you so much for making our day a dream."
"Well, Cassandra ABSOLUTELY knocked it out of the ballpark. On the wedding day, she was a pro at setting up specific shots as needed, blending into the background when appropriate, but still capturing the perfect candid moments and shots as they appeared. These photos were so much more breathtakingly beautiful than we could've imagined."
"Blue Canoe Photography was an absolute dream to work with both in engagement and our wedding. Cassandra was completely attentive, funny, and above all, a brilliant photographer."
"Cassandra was absolutely amazing. I was hesitant that since we were eloping it would feel small but she made our day look exactly as it was… full of love and happiness. She captured some of the most breathtaking shots and we are lucky enough to look back on these photos for the rest of our lives."
"Not only did my husband and I feel seen and captured as we truly felt on that day, she took absolutely beautiful photos of our family and friends. I am incredibly grateful that we chose to work with her."
"The more times I look at our wedding photos, the more impressed I am every time. Absolutely blown away! Candids, posed, action shots, family photos, classic, artsy, ANYTHING… Cassandra did a fabulous job with all of it! No matter your style, she could do it."
"Cassandra was wonderful! She was easy to work with, listening to what we wanted and communicating well. Her pictures were amazing - truly capturing the emotions of my daughter's wedding."
Blue Canoe was inspired by a conversation I had with my sister on her wedding day. Our father was to row her in a canoe across a large pond where her wedding aisle began. Several canoes lined the dock, when she asked me which color canoe they should take. I responded with, "The blue one, of course!"
She got her "something blue" and I got the name to my photography business.
