Jesse and Jen are FANTASTIC to work with. My husband and I worked with them for our engagement and wedding pictures. We are beyond thrilled that we selected them to capture such an important time in our lives. They were accommodating, professional, flexible and fun to have around on our big day. The entire experience was easy, which is what we were looking for in such a hectic time! I highly recommend Catalyst and will for sure be using them in the future. Thank you, Jesse and Jen!!!
Jesse and Jen are seriously amazing! We just had a family/maternity shoot and the pictures couldn't have turned out more perfect. They gave me exactly what I wanted and somehow managed to get the most amazing pictures of my 2 and half year old that I can't ever get to smile. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer!
Catalyst Design and Photography created my son's senior graduation photos this past October. They were willing to also take a few family shots of the five of us. The results were awesome! We sent out one of those family pictures with our Christmas letter (the one where we are sitting one curb in front of the Nordlof with linked arms) and we have received numerous rave reviews from our friends and family.

It is so wonderful to have these photos on our computer and the freedom and license to print them as we wish. We look forward to having Jesse and Jen take future photos of our family.

Endless thanks for capturing our beautiful family in the town we love, Jesse and Jen!
Jen & Jesse are fantastic! We wanted a photographer for my daughter's wedding that had more of an artistic eye and photo-journalistic style. We needed photographers that had experience and expertise in taking low-light photos, since the ceremony was taking place just before sunset. We looked at many photographers and viewed tons of photos, and then we found Catalyst. I tend to be a bit of a control freak, so letting strangers take control of such an important part of the day would normally be very difficult for me. Not so at all with Jen and Jesse! From the first conversation on the phone to the first meeting in person to the big day, we felt as if we were working with family friends. Even though they were working the Wedding Day, we were thrilled to have them share in the celebration with us, and we can't wait to see all the photos they took (the wedding was just two days ago)! If they are even half as good as the engagement photos, we will be thrilled! Jen and Jesse are phenomenal photographers and they went above and beyond to help us with the organization on the day, coordinating with everyone from the videographers to the DJ to my sister and sister-in-law who were in charge for the day. We couldn't have asked for better people to work with and we would definitely recommend them for everyone's photography needs. Thank you both so much for making the day perfect and celebrating with us! We hope you keep in touch!
We had struggled to find a photographer that could give us natural looking pictures. With the other photographers we tried, we always left feeling disappointed and like we'd spent too much money for the photos we received. But Jesse and Jen made the whole session so enjoyable! Our daughter was so comfortable with them that she acted with them as if she was just with mommy and daddy, and her little personality came right out in the photos! We couldn't be happier with the results. We will continue to have our family pictures taken with Catalyst. :)

We were lucky enough to have Catalyst Design and Photography be there for our engagement photos as well as our entire wedding day. Jen and Jesse seemed to capture every natural moment and turn in into a memory. We could not have asked for more perfect pictures not to mention two incredible people. After meeting Jen and Jesse we knew that we would not have to be concerned knowing that whatever direction they decided to take would turn out even better than the picture before. Our wedding party and our guests have also raved about how great they were to work with and have around. We will recommend Catalyst Design and Photography to anyone looking to capture any moment and we can't wait to work with them again in the future! That's right Jen and Jesse we will be back!

We can't say enough about Catalyst Design and Photography! Jen and Jesse were so wonderful to work with and their photographs are absolutely beautiful. They were totally open to ideas we had and came with their own ideas as well, which was much appreciated. They were also both cool as cucumbers as they managed our rather large and unruly group! Suffice it to say, I think we know who will go with when it's time to take family portraits someday!
Catalyst also designed our wedding invitations and programs. We told them the kind of feeling/style we were going for, showed them a few aspects of other invites we liked, and then set them loose. The finished product was exactly what we wanted!
Many many thanks to Jen and Jesse for capturing our day!

Fabulous beyond words!! Jen and Jesse double team it for amazing shots from multiple angles and are also efficient by having two photographers available. Great eye for a shot and such beautiful and original photography. They truly capture their subjects. Great communication, flexibility, creativity, and even a great value! Thanks Catalyst!

We had Jesse and Jen do our family photos which was so important to me especially since my whole family can only really spend time together in the summers since some of my step children live in Scotland. Anyways, not only did they do an amazing job on the photos, but they were so creative and easy to work with my large family. Not to mention the turnaround time on the photos blew me away it was so fast!! Plus they were very flexible with my schedule as you can imagine it's not easy to get all eleven us us together at one time. I hope to use them again the next time we get the whole gang together again!!! Thanks again for these unforgettable memories you helped us capture!!!

When we got married, we chose our photographer based on price alone. Looking back, I wish we would have chosen a photographer that we loved. This summer, we had the chance to recreate our wedding photographs with Jesse and Jen on our family farm. What a memorable experience! Jen and Jesse were fantastic to work with and the pictures turned out amazing. I have the "re-takes" all over our house, even though we've been married for 4 years now and most of our original pictures have been taken off of the walls. I would recommend Catalyst Design and Photography to anyone! They are easy and fun to work with, creative, and artistic. I'm just waiting for another opportunity to have them photograph for us!

I cannot be more impressed with Catalyst Photography and Jesse and Jen. They are professional, attentive, fun, fantastic artists, and made some incredibly un-photogenic people look absolutely amazing. I've only seen 6 of our professional pictures so far, but I know that every single one of them is going to be incredible. I am SO happy we booked them for our wedding, and I VERY HIGHLY recommend them to everyone! Great people and great photographers!

Jesse and Jen were beyond amazing. They knew exactly what they were doing, and were SO MUCH FUN! They really added something special to the day. We live in Madison and it was totally worth it to have them travel up here. I only wished we lived closer so we could take more pics more often... but I know we'll be down to visit and will have them do more family pics with the dog :)

We also got our pictures back in record time! I'm always so anxious to see pictures right away, and we got them back WAY sooner than I could have hope for! Can't wait to do more family pics with you guys!

We used Catalyst for our family pictures, which wound up turning into engagement pictures. My fiancé proposed half way through the photo session. They turned out wonderfully. We are grateful Jesse and Jen captured the moment so artistically and beautifully. It was no question who we were going to use for the wedding, which is coming up so quickly! Can't wait to see what they have in store for us this time :)

We have had Senior pictures taken as well as family pictures!! We have loved every picture!!!! Awesome job both times! Great quality and attention to detail. Can't wait to do it again!!
