Catherine Forge is a photographer and historian based in Melbourne, Australia. She specialises in photojournalism, portraiture, weddings (limited bookings), arts events and nature. Born in rural Victoria (Gippsland), Catherine’s journey into photography grew out of her connection to the rural landscape and her interest in history. She holds a Bachelor of Arts (honours in history) and a Master of Public History, and is currently working as curator and photographer with Melbourne Museum. Her most recent work is aimed at documenting the untold stories of Australian women on the land via the museum’s Invisible Farmer Project.
In 2016 and 2017 Catherine was listed by Junebug Weddings (USA) as one of Melbourne’s top ten wedding photographers. Catherine’s approach to wedding photography is journalistic and relaxed, and her wedding work has been published internationally and nationally.
Catherine lives with her husband Nick and dog Milo in Melbourne and enjoys bushwalks, gardening, live music and the occasional dorky dance. You can get in touch with her here.
