Hi there, my name is Audra! I began Party Cat officially in September of 2015, but it's something I had dreamt about for what feels like forever. A way to connect my love for photography and handmade décor in one adventure is still a little unreal to me. Work is fun when you genuinely love what you do! And still, after 4 years of running this lil business of mine, nothing makes me happier than making people giggle in a photobooth!
In 2011, my amazing husband and I (and our three cutie cats) moved to Portland shortly after both receiving a BFA in Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design. We have been living here and loving it ever since!

"Audra's photo booth was the best we've ever seen. The props were unique and beautiful, and allowed our guests to create whimsical stories with their 3 panel photo strips. Our guests pasted copies into a photo book, which we will treasure for years to come. The handmade background was a lovely touch, the price was good, and on top of it all, Audra was a joy to work with. We could not be happier."
"Audra and the team at Party Cat were fantastic! It was easy to book, there was terrific clear and timely communication and added an element of surprise and fun to our annual fundraising event. I would absolutely work with them in the future and couldn't recommend them more highly for any event that you may have in mind."
"I came across Party Cat at their very first bridal show earlier this year and hired them on the spot. Best decision ever! Audra (the owner) specializes in creating cute props and backdrops that are custom to your event. I am creatively challenged and had lots of crazy ideas but she listened carefully, was easy to collaborate with, and ended up making the photo booth area at our wedding look fabulous and perfectly in tune with our decor. Add in the fact that she is super friendly and fun to be around, and you can understand why everyone in attendance - from 82-year-olds to toddlers – had a blast in the photo booth. My husband and I are so glad to have these photos as fun souvenirs of our special day. You should hire Party Cat, too! You won’t regret it."
"If I had to recommend only one vendor from our wedding (and I really loved most of them), I would have to suggest Party Cat! I knew from the beginning stages of planning our wedding that I wanted a photo booth but didn't know how to make costs work once I found out how expensive it can be. Audra was lovely to work with and we were able to decide on a package that fit my budget. I was thrilled day of with the custom backdrop Audra created from the inspiration pic I had sent her as well as the custom props. Our guests definitely enjoyed the photo booth but I was the one stuck around all night!"
