I’m Cate Furtado and I am excited you took a visit over to my little nook of the internet! I am a cat-loving, tea-drinking, Office-quoting 25 year old. I am a wife to my babe of a husband, Josh. We are currently living in the San Francisco Bay Area and are completely loving getting to explore this city. We moved here almost four years ago but it still feels so new to us! There is always something new around every corner—a restaurant, a coffee shop, a stunning view. Most days you can find me dreaming and planning up our next adventure together, seeking out the next best recipe to cook or sporting my favorite pair of leggings. I fully believe in making the most of the one life you are given and doing what fills you with joy!
Josh and I were married on September 12, 2015 at a private estate in Nevada City, California. We wanted our day to be authentically ours in every way. We were surrounded by nature and our favorite people, we ate our favorite tacos, I wore more cake than I had the chance to eat and we danced the night away to our favorite songs. I forgot to break in my shoes and the clasps on my dress broke right before our first dance but I wouldn’t change anything about that day. It was our perfect day. It was the beginning of our long awaited life together.
You see, Josh and I started dating our senior year of high school and then parted ways for college. I went to Sacramento State and he went to Cal Poly SLO—we spent four years driving up and down California just to keep our story going. It was hard but again, I wouldn’t change anything about it. It shaped us into the people we are today and it is now a fond memory to look back on. Our story was beautifully photographed in our wedding pictures and you can hear the joy we shared in our video.
Our wedding was authentically ours—and yours should be too!
My photography style is real and full of candid laughter. I do everything I can to make sure that your love, your passions and your story are represented in my photographs. Whether its the look on the groom's face when he sees his bride for the first time or the joy of celebrating a milestone in life, I want to help capture your story so that you can look back on the pictures for years to come. I am so lucky to work with people who want their story documented by me and I hope to one day capture yours!
A huge shout out to the amazing & talented Trevor Hooper for our stunning wedding video!
