Something changes in my soul when I’m near the water. The closest thing I can compare it to is when you return to your childhood home after being gone for years. The water makes me remember my family, and joy. It holds me and protects me. It plays with me and loves me. I’m so happy to be back by the briny blue of the Atlantic. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Shot in Hope Town, Bahamas on a disposable camera #filmsnotdead
I’m constantly told that it’s okay to slow down. I don’t have to accept every job or visit every friend. I don’t have to be everywhere for everyone. ✨ But I only get to do this once. I’m only going to get this body and this mind for a moment, and then it will all change.  So why wouldn’t I try to push every limit, see every place, feel every moment while I can?  So here’s to another Sunday NOT at home 🍻 . . . . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . .

You know that feeling when you’ve just been working SO hard, whether it’s a workout to break a sweat or you’re at your job and things are just flowing, and then you’re done and you feel that rush of joy? That sensation of lightness and accomplishment because your just gave it everything you have... and when all is said and done it worked? That’s how I feel. I’m looking up from these last few weeks, leaving Louisville tomorrow, and I’ve got that high, brain rush of satisfaction for everything that I accomplished on this trip.  Thank you to the clients that allow me to create something beautiful. Thank you to the wonderful participants in my workshop, I will definitely be planning another one soon. And thank you to the friends that welcome me every time I’m here and make Louisville my home. . . . . .  #familyphotography #babyphotography #environmentalportrait #naturalfamilyphotography  #njphotographer #nycphotographer #njphotography #photographynomad  #flashesofdelighg #newjerseyphotographer  #newyorkphotographer #hudsonvalleyphotographer #louisvillephotographer #holdthecheese #photographingtruth #finnrauen #finnrauenphotography #finnrauenkids #louisville #louisvillefamilyphotographer
I never find a woman more beautiful then when her eyes are filled with thoughts.
Another 6 hours in the car today heading to the North Carolina coast... all I can say is there better be a poolside watermelon martini waiting for me when I get there... 🍸
My actual face waking up this morning because today is my Hold the “Cheese!” Workshop!! This workshop is a series of individual mentoring sessions where I discuss how to create more successful images in every day situations. My attendees are women/mothers who are excited about photographing everything from their kids in the bathtub to the perfect sunset photo in Costa Rica. THIS IS SO MUCH FUN. Keep an eye out this weekend for little peeks at the awesome photos these women are creating. . . . . . .  #familyphotography #babyphotography #environmentalportrait #naturalfamilyphotography  #finnrauen #nycphotographer #njphotography #finnrauenphotography #nyc #newjerseyphotographer  #newyorkphotographer #hudsonvalleyphotographer #louisvillephotographer #smallbusinesssaturday #childrenswear #productphotography #louelle #neutral #dailyparenting #thehappynow #kidaccessories #kidstyle #everydayluxury #thatsdarling #ig_motherhood #studiolighting #ecommercephotography #ecommerce #holdthecheese #holdthecheeseworkshop

This weekend was amazing.  I got to teach photography, two of my favorite things that come straight from my heart. I spent a moody, hot summer evening photographing old friends. And I fell asleep last night with a smile on my face 🤗 happy Monday. This is going to be a beautiful week.... even if we can’t all fly out to Joshua Tree to sit at this desert meditation space... I’m sure we’ll all find a way to make do 🙏🏻 . . . . .  #landscape #landscapephotography #landscapecaptures #liveoutdoors #travel #travelphoto #travelgram #getoutside #wanderlust #traveldiary #traveljournal #travelportrait #travelphotographer #resourcetravel  #photographingtruth #holdthecheese #holdthecheeseworkshop #louisvillemoms #photographyworkshop #joshuatree #joshuatreeairbnb #meditationspace #desert #desertphotography #skyhousejoshuatree #finnrauen #finnrauenphotography
I finished 5 blog posts yesterday. Yep. I go the whole year without keeping up on that and thanksgiving comes along and the muse strikes. After the holiday I will start sharing them one at a time. I’m so greateful that I had some time this holiday to reflect on the truly incredible people I’ve met and worked with this year. Never forget to appreciate the people who hold you up.  Happy thanksgiving friends!! . . . . . .  #finnrauen #finnrauenphotography #finnrauenweddings #finnrauenphoto #photobugcommunity #wdofficial #wilmingtonnc #wilmingtonphotographer #wilmingweddingphotographer #ncweddingphotographer #ncwedding #louisvilleky #louisvilleweddingphotographer #ohwowyes #relationshipgoals #epicloveepiclife #muchlove_ig #belovedstories #photobugcommunity #authenticlovemag #radlovestories #loveandwildhearts #couplegoals #togetherweroam #thatsdarling #flashesofdelight #dearphotographerxoxo #shootandshare #lookslikefilm

Wedding dresses seem to carry their own light. Even in the darkest room, they make the bride shine.
Happy First Anniversary to Jess + Mark!! One year ago today we were sneaking away from their family and friends so we could capture this amazing sunset kiss. I hope you guys have a perfect weekend together and celebrate how far you’ve come. . . . .  #elopementlove #freespiritedbride #offbeatbrides #honestlove #weddingphotoinspiration #flashesofdelight #weddingphotomag #junebugweddings #weddingforward #wdofficial  #theknotrealweddings #boutiquephotography #newjerseywedding #njweddingphotographer #newjerseybride #njweddingphotography #newenglandwedding #newenglandweddingphotographer #bespokewedding #newjerseyphotographer #newjerseyweddingphotographer #hudsonvalleyweddingphotographer #hudsonvalleyphotographer
Oh hey #fridayintroduction! I’ve neglected to really introduce myself on this profile in the past and I’m hoping to change that. ➰  So hey! I’m Catherine. My company is called Finn RAUEN because I wanted to name my company for something bigger than just little ol’ me. So Finn is my childhood nickname, and RAUEN is my husbands last name, my tribe name. My photography is about the past and the future and these fleeting, impossible, right now moments we call the present. And that’s what I wanted to bring into my name. ➰  To answer to the next question I’m always asked, I will answer to Finn, but I’ll always introduce myself as Catherine 🕊 because that’s the woman my mama raised. ➰  This photo was taken in Germany, which is my birthplace and favorite place in the world. I’ll always love the memory of the fog on the river and how very quiet this small town was on this early morning. . . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . . . #fridayfollows #communityofmakers #intimateweddingphotographer #getoutside #explorer #adventureweddingphotographer #elopementphotographer #microweddingphotographer #startwithwhy, #theartofslowliving, #livemoremagic, #livethelittlethings, #thehappynow, #flashesofdelight, #doitfortheprocess, #makersgonnamake, #communityovercompetition, #postitfortheaesthetic, #creativepreneur, #risingtide, #dontquityourdaydream #pursuepretty, #calledtobecreative, #creativityfound  #finnrauen #finnrauenphotography #finnrauenweddings #photobugcommunity #finnrauenphoto
Late season wildflowers are filling my heart right now. Fall weather might be unpredictable, but my couples (both engaged and married) are finding the best of luck in sunsets, wildflowers, and love in the air. . . . . .  #engagement #howheasked #njengagementphotos #catskills #poconos #hudsonvalley #nyc #nycengagements #mountainengagement #sunsetengagement #passaiccountyphotographer #bergencountyphotographer #hudsonvalleyphotographer #newjerseyphotographer #nycphotographer #offbeatbride #naturalengagementphotos
This image sends me with its simplicity 😍... but some things aren’t so black and white. Lets talk "Ideal Client" 😱. It's really hard to do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was talking with some fellow photographers recently and 'Ideal Clients' came up.  The reality is, we have to have business plans, marketing plans, intentional aesthetic, AND, as business owners, we have to identify who our target clients are. It’s brutal, because I know most of us are doing this work out of passion, not because we wanted to pick sides on a playground.  It’s so hard to admit that not every client is an 'Ideal'... (ugh-stab-in-gut-so-painful-to-say)... but sometimes we have to address that in order to move our business forward. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m sharing this reality because I don't want you, as a client, to misunderstand a marketing strategy as a lack of passion. I definitely have an ideal client for my business. But here's the important part, the part that comes from the deep parts of my heart: Yes I do have an ideal client. But in no way does that mean I give any less love, effort, blood-sweat-and-tears for someone who falls outside of the "ideal" category. I don't want any past, present, or future clients to think that if I talk about an "ideal" that my time with you means any less to me. It doesn't. It means everything to me. . . . . . . . .  #adventurouslovers #heywildweddings #rockymountainbride #rmbcolorado #wildhearts #photobugcommunity #wdofficial #ohwowyes  #smallbusinessowner #muchlove_ig #belovedstories #photobugcommunity #authenticlovemag #radlovestories #loveandwildhearts #couplegoals #inspiremyinstagram #flashesofdelight #dearphotographerxoxo #shootandshare #lookslikefilm  #finnrauen #finnrauenphotography #finnrauenweddings #finnrauenphoto
"When it's time for souls to meet, there's nothing on earth that can prevent them from meeting, no matter where each may be located. When two hearts are meant for each other, no distance is too far, no time is too long, and no other love can break them apart." . . . . . . .  #weddingportrait #indianweddin #inyoureyes #elopementlove #freespiritedbride #offbeatbrides #honestlove #weddingphotoinspiration #flashesofdelight #weddingphotomag #junebugweddings #weddingforward #wdofficial  #theknotrealweddings #boutiquephotography #newjerseywedding #njweddingphotographer #newjerseybride #bespokewedding #newjerseyphotographer #newjerseyweddingphotographer #hudsonvalleyweddingphotographer #finnrauen #finnrauenphotography #finnrauenweddings #finnrauenphoto #dirtybootsandmessyhair
I. love. this. moment!  I took two photos. One was my lovely couple in perfect symmetry.  The other was this one, blissfully interrupted by a jogger. And I absolutely love it.  This is New York! There are no private moments. There’s no intimacy, your life is deeply intertwined with the people around you whether it’s convenient or not.  So Mr. Jogger, Sir, thank you for framing a moment with connection and culture. I couldn’t have planned this if I tried. .. . . . . . #brooklyn #nyc #nyclifestyle #newyorkculture #nycengagementphotos  #finnrauen #finnrauenphotography #finnrauenweddings #finnrauenphoto #ohwowyes #relationshipgoals #epicloveepiclife #dirtybootsandmessyhair #muchlove_ig #belovedstories #photobugcommunity #authenticlovemag #radlovestories #loveandwildhearts #couplegoals #inspiremyinstagram #togetherweroam #fromwhereisatnd #thatsdarling #flashesofdelight #dearphotographerxoxo #shootandshare #lookslikefilm
Less than a year ago, I met this woman. One of my best friends brought her across the ocean to be at my wedding. Two days later I was there when he proposed to her, and I got to be a part of a beautiful love story. And then this year flew by and they got married and I had the chance to know Suzannah better and better. Today is her birthday and that’s something worth truly celebrating. The world is a better, lighter, kinder place with her in it. Happy Birthday, @equisimon . You have my heart. . . . . . #happybirthday #27years #dearestfriend  #destinationelopement #destinationproposal #elopementphotgrapher  #elopementlove #freespiritedbride #offbeatbrides #honestlove #weddingphotoinspiration #flashesofdelight #weddingphotomag #junebugweddings #weddingforward #wdofficial  #theknotrealweddings #boutiquephotography #bespokewedding #finnrauen #finnrauenphotography #finnrauenweddings #finnrauenphoto #elopementphotographer #intimatewedding
OUT OF OFFICE The husband has planned an entire day as an early celebration of our anniversary. All I know is that I’ll be donning an evening gown at 1:30 in the afternoon and I’ll be home before my carriage becomes a pumpkin again. (P.S. always rock the seat ✌🏻) Photo credit to @kelseyannrose who was an excellent third wheel on our California adventure this year ❤️ . . . . . . #engagement #howheasked #njengagementphotos #catskills #poconos #hudsonvalley #nyc #nycengagements #mountainengagement #sunsetengagement #passaiccountyphotographer #bergencountyphotographer #hudsonvalleyphotographer #newjerseyphotographer #nycphotographer #offbeatbride #naturalengagementphotos #anniversaryphotos #anniversarygift #whimsicalengagement #southerncaliforniabride
