Hey! We are Zach and Cat, a husband and wife photography team, and those are two of our little ones who always cooperate for family photos. :) We have recently had our third daughter, but we are, oddly enough, really bad at having family pictures taken so this will have to do for now. We love shooting weddings, but not for the reasons you might think. We love the organized chaos and constant action of a wedding day. We love how weddings are really just an excuse to throw an amazing party. We love when grooms that "never show any emotion" cry. We love when the dance floor gets a little weird. And we love how weddings are always so unique and different.

We know that having your picture taken can be stressful and not something that you do often. After all, our most recent family picture above is 3 years old. :) So we like to make your wedding day pictures as easy and relaxed as possible for you. And who knows, you may even end up having a little fun! We aren't big fans of pictures that are too posed or cheesy and we much prefer you to be as comfortable as possible because we believe that wedding pictures should look like you. They should remind you of what the day felt like and capture the real moments that happened and not just be one big photoshoot.


We like to create clean and vibrant images. We love real emotions and moments. We love candids and unposed pictures, but we also love portraits because we have tricks to help make you look more candid and natural. We know most people have no idea what to do with their hands...or face, or body...so we are here to help with that.


Zach (Lead Photographer): Believes how well a restaurant makes a fish taco tells you all that you need to know.

Cat: Loves to take pictures of our kids...with her phone. Go figure. PS: Since we just had another kid, Cat is currently on maternity leave, aka trying to find babysitters who agree to watch three young kids for a full wedding day :) So when she isn't able to be there for all or part of a wedding day, we will bring one of our other second shooters who have been regularly shooting with us for years!

“The BEST!!! Zach and his wife are pros!!!! And the nicest people to work with. And the photos speak for themselves. We could not be happier.”

“Have you ever met someone who immediately treated you like family? Garter & Whiskey was that way for my fiancé and I. From the moment we met Zach, we instantly felt at home. They are so willing to answer any question you have and were so incredibly helpful in putting together our day of wedding timeline as well. Not to mention, they're incredible photographers, who gave us our wedding photos in lightning speed!”

“Garter and Whiskey are amazing photographers! Zach is punctual and always full of energy - just ready to create and capture the perfect moments. His eye for the perfect shot is unmatched. I have gotten so many compliments on the photos. The amazing shots captured at my wedding reception, I'm sure made folks jealous because he truly captured ALL the fun we had!”

“Zach and Cat were so wonderful to work with! At both our engagement shoot and on our wedding day, Zach made me and everyone else feel comfortable and at ease. On top of that their work is phenomenal! I HIGHLY recommend using Garter and Whiskey as your photographer!”

“Wow, I could not find enough great stuff to say about Zach and Cat. Fun, easy to work with and gets the best shots, ever! Artistic and able to really capture the feel of the wedding and couple beautifully! These pictures will be treasured for a lifetime. Thank you so much for exceeding any and all expectations!”

“Booking Garter + Whiskey as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions I made in planning my wedding! Cat and Zach were easily one of my favorite vendors and they went above and beyond when it came to our wedding. Another reason I enjoyed having them as our wedding photographer was their personalities. You are hanging out with these people all day. They are really cool, easy going, and fun to be around. My wedding party was obsessed with them. Do yourself a favor and book them for your wedding!”
