Kind Words

Meredith & Chris

“We are recovering from the wedding but didn’t we didn’t want to let any time go by before thanking you for everything you did at the wedding! We wished you could have stayed and ate and danced instead of working because we all thought you were a lot of fun. We haven’t even seen the photographs but we know they will be fabulous. Even Uncle Haskell said you were amazing as he watched your careful portrait shots! Anyway…part of what makes you so wonderful is your way with people and we just wanted you to know how much we appreciate you.”

“Sean Cayton’s photography was absolutely superb! He was accommodating; his pictures were beautiful capturing special effects– lighting.etc, I would recommend him to everyone! He has given us a beautiful keepsake of our daughter’s wedding.”

“We’re excited to share our pictures with everyone who attended our celebration! Most importantly, we are incredibly glad you were our photographer. Everyone we talked with said you were so dedicated and engaging, we’ll be in touch soon.”

Rachel & Trevor

“I could not have asked for a better photographer for my engagement and wedding. Sean was one of the easiest photographers I have ever been around. One of the best things about our photos is that Sean let us be US. He didn’t spend the whole day trying to force us into awkward poses we weren’t comfortable with, but rather followed us around and captured some of the sweetest and most authentic moments between us. I am so impressed with how quickly he got the pictures back to us as well, it was as quick as I have ever gotten photos back and they were amazing on top of that and there were so many great ones to choose from. The pictures are better than I had hoped they would be, he perfectly captured our personalities and our love in a natural way and I appreciate the way he worked so hard to work around us allowing us to be ourselves! I am so thankful we have some incredible photos that document our special day. Sean did not let us down!”

“My name is Anna. I’m calling to thank you for the visual treat, your advertisement in this week’s Independent. I’m the lady who called at the end of September because I was just so impressed with the beautiful photograph you had that week. I just compliment you on the beautiful work you do and I enjoy looking at your advertisements every time they come out. I’m 88-years-old so I’m not about to be using your services but I do enjoy seeing your work when it appears in the Independent. Again many thanks for your lovely ads. Bye now.”

Lousia & Brendan

Where do I begin in thanking you for our unbelievable wedding photos? They are amazing!! I can’t tell you how many compliments we have already received… not only that, but your presence as our photographer as well! Everyone truly enjoyed your company which is more appreciated than you know! We look forward to more photo sessions with you in the future!!”

“It’s been almost a year since our wedding, and thinking back on the occasion made me want to write this review. In summary, Sean is fantastic! Fabulous photography and so easy/flexible to work with. Planning a wedding with many moving parts, I decided to limit my priorities (because with mothers and mothers in law you don’t always get your way!). My priorities were my dress, dancing/music, and the photography. And I am so glad we went with Sean! From the first meeting, he was very easy to work with and receptive to my thoughts and ideas. I made a list of shots I wanted, and gave him creative control over the rest. And boy did he deliver. From the formal, posed shots to the candid (my personal favorite), Sean’s photography really captured the spirit of our wedding.”

Sean Cayton is hands down the best thing you could spend your money on. He is worth the investment. Sean is so perceptive to his clients that he doesn’t really have a “style.” His style so purely reflects the character of his subjects.”

Blake & Charlie

“Sean was the perfect photographer for our elopement. We are both very camera shy and had been dreading the thought of a camera being on us for two hours, but he made us feel so comfortable. He was available at all times leading up to the day of the event, and he was willing to help in any way possible. Looking through the photos he sent, we were blown away by the moments he captured, and the colors and the light in each of them. He got so many different shots, with completely different backgrounds and emotions. Our problem now is that there are too many amazing photos to choose from. We could not be happier that we found Sean and we highly recommend him to anyone out there looking for a photographer!”

“Sean, What can we say? We are indebted to you! Our photos are beautiful – elegant and very much reflect our spirit. We can’t say enough about you and your work. We are thrilled that we have your photos to remember our day.”

Cynthia & William

“We were so happy with our experience working with Sean Cayton on our wedding day! He was very professional and easy to work with. On the day of our wedding, he made us feel comfortable and was very efficient in getting the shots we wanted so that we could have time to enjoy ourselves. He did a great job of capturing our wedding and reception. The photos are absolutely beautiful. We couldn’t be happier.”

Whitney & Trey

“Sean took our wedding pictures in Keystone, Colorado. He did such a great job! We couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos. He had our photos to us in a timely manner, captured the moments without being intrusive, was very easy to work with, and our pictures were amazing.”

Patrice & Brad

Bride and groom embrace with purple bouquet and tattoo.

“Sean photographed my wedding and reception and each step of the way he was personable, attentive, punctual, and extremely creative! My husband and I had so many wonderful photos to choose from and nearly every shot, including ones with our family, were perfect. There were also a great variety of formal and candid shots with easily accessible, organized folders when we received them just a few days after our wedding! We have already recommended Sean to other friends and family for their wedding.”

Heather & Dale

“We have our album and I ABSOLUTELY love it! I really couldn’t be happier with your work and presence throughout the arc of our wedding planning and wedding. When I look back through my pics I FEEL my day again — the joy and the nuances. And I can’t tell you how many of our friends have complimented your work! I get a lot of, “Heather, this should be in a magazine!” You were a joy to work with, Sean, and the album is a joy to look through. I pick it up when *I* need a pick-me up.”

Julie & Russell

“Sean was a pleasure to work with throughout the wedding process! Not only did the guests comment on his fun and kind presence, but he made the groom and I feel as comfortable as possible while taking the pictures. We love the photographs of the wedding at the Denver Botanic Gardens! They are beautiful, creative, and perfectly captured our happiness and emotion on that day. We couldn’t have asked for more, thank you, Sean!”

“Thanks so much for everything you have done. The canvas print, upgrades to our album, getting them in time for holiday gifts and most of all – making our wedding special and helping to make this memory last forever. You are great at what you do. It shows that you care and your passion shines through.”

Jacqueline & Brian

“You have such a gift Sean and we all feel so fortunate to get the benefit of your talent. Not only do we have wonderful documentation of such a special event, but we have something REALLY SPECIAL to show the multitude of people who could not be there. I love that they all “feel” the joy of the day. Only you could have done that! Thank you does not begin to express our gratitude!”

Wedding Planning Tips

“Having worked with Sean on a number of professional projects over the years, he was the only person I could imagine photographing my wedding. Not only is he a gifted photographer, he is a kind and generous person. He took the time to get to know my fiance and structure an engagement shoot that reflects who we are as people, climbing through theatre scaffolding and fording icy rivers to get the perfect shots to tell our story. At the wedding, he scouted beautiful locations, managed our time expertly, charmed our guests thoroughly, and created a portfolio of images that made us shed tears of joy. So many of our guests told us afterward how impressed they were with his professionalism and the genuine delight he took in documenting the celebration, and of course we’re still hearing about how much people like the photos. Our wedding did not have a large budget, and most of it was DIY, but our contract with Cayton Photography was worth every penny for the ease of mind that comes with having a consummate professional to document the day down to the last detail. We owe such a debt of gratitude to Sean, and can’t recommend him highly enough.”

Alexandra & Colin

We could not have asked for a better photographer. We used Sean for both our ceremony and engagement photos. He was simply amazing. He was responsive with our requests and was quick to offer suggestions. He was truly a professional in every sense of the word. We did not have a “first look” ceremony, so we might have run into a time issue if it hadn’t have been for Sean. He was so efficient that we were able to get many of our photos done before the ceremony. Sean was also lightning quick with getting the photos formatted and uploaded. Our pictures were available within a week of our ceremony. Sean offers flexible pricing and purchasing options. We have gotten numerous comments about how wonderful the photos turned out. Trust us, use Sean at Cayton Photography.”

“I am overjoyed by the photos we got of our wedding. Sean was everywhere – even our guests commented on how he seemed to be in the right place at the right time, but not at all intrusive to the festivities. He got the shots we wanted, and some we didn’t even think about. He got shots of our guests that were fantastic and captured the feeling we were going for, easily. He was laid back and confident, putting us at ease and we got our photos much more quickly then I expected. We are very, very pleased.”

“Dear Sean, Thank you so much for photographing our wedding day so beautifully. Our friends and family had so much fun with you and we have loved sharing our amazing photos with them. Thanks to you hard work we will have this wonderful narrative of that day preserved always! It really is special to us:) Best Wishes to you and your family!”

Brie & Michael

“Sean is a rock star at taking photos! He looks for and captures those special moments, looks, and actions. He also has a keen eye on how to best position people in the pictures. It would be a gross understatement to say we couldn’t be happier with our daughter’s wedding photos. There are no opportunities to retake wedding pictures. If you want to be 100% certain your wedding is captured, hire Cayton Photography!”

“Dear Sean, Just a note of thanks for the outstanding job you did on our wedding photos. I can’t tell you how many times Ashley has mentioned how happy she is with them. Needless to  say, it’s something we’ll be grateful for all or our married life together. You’re truly gifted.”

Jessica & Bryce

Wedding couple raise their hands in celebration at the end of their wedding ceremony at La Foret Conference and Retreat Center.

“Sean is an exceptional photographer. The moment we opened up our online album for the first time we were instantly captivated. Even with hundreds of photos we spent the entire night looking and cherishing each one. We had the difficult task of choosing only 20 for our main album even though we will have digital access as well. He captures posed and candid photos and understands lighting wonderfully. He is friendly and worked well with everyone in our party. During the ceremony he captured every essential moment and I never noticed his presence intrude upon any of the moments.(Though to be fair my wife had all of my presence of mind). Regardless, these memories will be forever remembered. We have so many beautiful memories that will remain with us forever. Thank you Sean.”

Madelaine & David

“Sean captured moments we completely missed in real time, for example, the ring bearers raiding a box of graham crackers just before the ceremony since no one remembered to feed them lunch. Wouldn’t trade that pic for the world! Sean brought energy and enthusiasm that made even the standard picture-taking so much fun that pure joy resonates from every image. Sean was clear and concise in all our dealings and made absolutely certain we understood what we were buying. There was no pressure, ever, to go with the more expensive option. Cayton was flexible and accommodating before, during and after the wedding. So glad Sean was our photographer.”

“The pictures are freaking amazing! I have never been able to look at a picture and remember exactly what I was feeling when it was taken… You captured who we are. You captured the beauty and warmth of our Colorado. I had all of these memories of the arcade and the Broadmoor as a little kid, and you helped US create new memories of these very nostalgic places TOGETHER!!! That meant so much. I look at those photos and I never, ever imagined we could look so good!!  I don’t know how you do it, but you see it all, and some how, SOMEHOW, you can create this amazing photo, with two goofy people, catching the genuineness of a moment, the emotion, not forcing it, not dictating how YOU think it SHOULD be. Everyone from family, to the nurses in the new office I’ve only been at for a week, were beyond blown away, they were moved by your work. You have no idea how much this means to us. Thank you.”

Esther & Jason

“I really want to thank you so much for your BEAUTIFUL photographs of our wedding day! You were so great to work with and really made Jason and I feel so comfortable with you! Our guests couldn’t believe you weren’t simply a guest at our wedding because of how wonderful and friendly you were with all of us! I still get compliments on how gorgeous our pictures are and how they seem like they’re straight out of a bridal magazine… Thank you so so much. You’re the best!”

Virginia & Richard

“Richard and I count ourselves as so very lucky to have had such a unique moment in time captured and preserved in such a way that even a year later, the story is so clear and the memories so vivid. We asked Sean to tell a rather intimate story of a couple marrying for what seemed like the first time and who had invited only twelve guests to celebrate with them. The unique challenges that this wedding created required a professional who could be creative and effective on a much more personal basis. While our closest friends and family gathered for a weekend of celebration, Sean was able to not only relay in pictures how important these people are to us, but did so in such a way that we missed him when he was gone. The story that he was able to tell as a result of his creativity and talent is something we will cherish for all time. We are forever grateful.”
