Residential Photography

Whether shooting interiors or exteriors, historic or vintage-inspired homes, modern meccas, or architectural masterpieces, Catherine Nguyen Photography captures the personality and life of the spaces she shoots, ensuring results that truly reflect the owner's lifestyle. Catherine also worked as the still photographer for HGTV's Love it or List it.


Editorial Photography

Catherine Nguyen Photography is frequently featured in the award-winning Walter Magazine, where her images bring dimension and clarity to articles across a wide variety of topics. Catherine's training in food, lifestyle, fashion, and hospitality give her the diverse experience needed to successfully complement each piece.


Commercial Photography

Where you work. Where you play. Whether an eclectic wine bar in Raleigh or a modern office space in San Francisco, Catherine's background in marketing and brand management gives her the perfect perspective for highlighting these spaces: Their versatility, their functionality, and above all their aesthetic appeal.


Branding Photography

Branding sessions require a thorough and intimate understanding of the client's brand as well as a desire for authentic representation. Catherine tells those stories, helping clients to establish or refresh that image. She forges lasting relationships with her clients to ensure their messaging remains fresh and consistent over the long term.
