Cloud Nine Studios Photography


Hello!  We are Caty and Terry of Cloud Nine Studios Photography, a self-taught (University of You Tube), award-winning husband and wife photography team based out of a tiny town of 841 residents in Northwest Minnesota.  Eleven years ago we went on our first date and spent the entire evening talking about photography.  Although photography was a hobby, we never set out to become photographers.  We always say photography found us and we love every single second of our "job".  We go together like milk and cookies:  we're both pretty good on our own but we do our best work as a team.  Caty is the main shooter, Terry is the main editor.  Caty is reserved and quiet, Terry is the comedian.

Since we started our business we've shot everything from a birth to newborns, kids, pets, families, high school seniors, engagements, weddings, and even some professional athletes.

No matter what type of session we are shooting,  we want to capture our clients REAL feelings and emotions.  Over the nearly six years we have been in the industry our style has evolved into something that can't be described with just a couple adjectives:  it's dramatic, emotional, natural, and edgy, just to name a few.  Kayla and Andrew's engagement session from this summer stands out because it is every adjective that describes Cloud Nine.

A couple weeks later the car was ready to go,  we met on a rural county road just before sunset.  We got so many awesome shots in about a half hour.  During that time we had only one vehicle drive down that road:  a county sheriff who happily drove around us, smiled, and waved.
