photography packages and standard rates

Our rates are highly competitive and unlike other photography services, Catcha Star provides an unlimited licence to reproduce your images. This means you may reproduce the images anywhere and as often as you like. We supply you with both digital high resolution print and online master copies of your images ready to be printed, or to be shared with friends and family online.
