meet Caitlin

Caitlin Kellagher is a US- and Australia-based photographer specializing in commercial lifestyle, portrait, and wedding photography. 

Extraordinary scenery and genuine emotion are the hallmarks of Caitlin’s work. Known for her raw and adventurous imagery, Caitlin takes a spirited, enthusiastic approach to shooting that captures the beauty and energy of her subjects. She uses natural light and a combination of medium format film and digital photography, adapting her technique to suit the mood and style of the shoot. 

In just two years, Caitlin photographed editorials, weddings, and landscapes on six continents and more than 30 countries, including Thailand, Spain, England, South Africa, Japan, and more. She is currently based in Sydney, Australia, but continues to take work in the US and around the globe. 

From bungy jumping off the cliffs of New Zealand and white water rafting the Zambezi River, to swimming with turtles in Hawaiian craters and diving with sharks in South Africa, Caitlin embodies the adventurous spirit of her photography. Her ultimate mission is to spend every day with couples, brands, and individuals with the same thirst for a worldly life.


Caitlin’s work has been featured in top wedding publications, including Style Me Pretty, The Knot Magazine, Southern Weddings, Brides, Green Wedding Shoes, Wedding Sparrow, Magnolia Rouge, Rock n Roll Bride, Baltimore Bride Magazine, and more.
