Hi there! Welcome to the Catherine Milliron Photography blog, the place where my passion for photography, travel, and business collides.

I love serving and celebrating my couples on their happiest days and I love serving and celebrating other business owners as I share my knowledge and love of business education.

I hope you'll grab your favorite beverage (I'll be sipping a lavender latte) and stay awhile!

Downtown Columbus Short North District Engagement


I met Hannah and Mike through another one of my precious 2019 couples, Christina and Josh. When I first met these two, I knew we were going to be fast friends. We spent their engagement session in downtown Columbus in the Short North district, laughing and dodging the crowds of people as they danced and hugged in the middle of the bustling city. They were so sweet and loving towards each other, and they were willing to adventure and try new things – they even stood in the middle of moving traffic so I could snap a long exposure shot, freezing them in time.

Ohio Indian Mounds Waterfall Winter Surprise Proposal


Anna was one of the first friends I ever made my freshman year of college, so when her boyfriend, Stephen, asked me to shoot his proposal I couldn’t have been more honored. We went and scoped out the location a few days in advance and planned out the whole thing. Indian Mounds Reserve made the perfect backdrop for his surprise proposal and the weather that day was below freezing, so the waterfall was covered in beautiful icicles as the ground showcased a fresh layer of bright white snow.

The Bridesmaid-Photographer: How to Shoot a Wedding…And Be In It


Once upon a time, one of my dearest friends in the whole world asked me to be in her wedding. Saying yes to being a bridesmaid in Megan and Jay’s Michigan winter wedding was one of the easiest decisions I’ve ever made. Then, Megan asked me another question – if I would also do double duty as her wedding photographer. My initial gut reaction was to excitedly say yes, but then my logistical side started panicking. Was it even remotely possible to be a photographer AND a bridesmaid??

Romantic Cleveland Waterfront Sunset Engagement


Taryn found me through instagram after I shot Mackenzie and Josiah’s stunning Cleveland Peacock Ridge Wedding this summer. She and her fiancé, Dan, were planning their Cleveland wedding for the fall of 2019, and after we chatted on FaceTime, I knew we were going to be fast friends. Even though we hit it off well on the phone, nothing prepared me for just how much fun we would have at their engagement session.

From our time at the willow trees lining the road by Taryn’s aunt’s house to the end of our session on the shore of Lake Erie, Taryn, Dan, and I laughed the entire time. Their chemistry was natural and effortless. They ran, played, kissed, and danced while the sun set over the water. The night was perfect and beautiful, as were these two. I can’t even wait for next fall and their October wedding day.

Mulberry and Blush Cleveland Peacock Ridge Barn Wedding


Wowza. These two are precious, precious friends and their wedding was one for the books. I’ve been friends with Mackenzie and Josiah long before their Ohio coffee shop engagement session. Mackenzie was my roommate during my freshman year of college, and I could not imagine a man more perfect for her than Josiah. God 100% made these two for each other, and the way they cherish one another was evident in every aspect of their day.
