Behind the Lens

Your favorite Midwest / destination
love and portrait photographer

Welcome to Caitlin and Camera, your go-to destination for capturing beautiful moments in Omaha and beyond. I’m Caitlin, an Omaha wedding photographer specializing in natural light and photojournalistic wedding photography. Let me take a moment to share a little bit about myself.

Hello there! I'm Caitlin...

Originally hailing from a small town in Iowa, I made my way to Omaha in 2013 to pursue my college education. I studied graphic design and also indulged my passion for dancing at the collegiate level at the esteemed University of Nebraska-Omaha. During this time, I was fortunate to work for a prominent design agency in Omaha while simultaneously embarking on my own photography venture.

In 2014, Caitlin and Camera was born, stemming from my earlier photography endeavor known as Caitlin Manley Photography. Throughout the years, I have had the privilege of capturing a wide range of photographic subjects. However, it is within the realms of weddings and portraits where my true passion lies. There is something truly magical about freezing those natural, radiant moments that define our lives, and preserving them for a lifetime.

Behind the scenes on a wedding day

As an Omaha wedding photographer, I pride myself on my ability to work with natural light, harnessing its beauty to enhance the emotions and authenticity within each frame. This approach allows me to create stunning imagery that reflects the true essence of your special day. I strive to document every precious moment, from the heartfelt exchange of vows to the exuberant celebrations, with a keen eye for detail and a commitment to storytelling.

My style can best be described as photojournalistic and documentary-inspired. I believe that the most compelling images are captured when people are uninhibited, their true selves shining through effortlessly. By blending into the background and observing the genuine interactions and emotions, I am able to curate a collection of photographs that truly encapsulate the spirit of your wedding day.

When you choose Caitlin and Camera as your Omaha wedding photographer, you can expect a personalized and attentive approach. I understand that every couple is unique, and it is my mission to portray your love story in a way that resonates with you. I take the time to get to know you, listen to your vision, and ensure that every cherished moment is documented with precision and artistry.

I am thrilled to embark on this journey with you, capturing memories that will last a lifetime. Whether you’re exchanging vows in Omaha or exploring a destination wedding, I am ready to preserve your precious moments with the utmost care and creativity.
