Hello and welcome!

I'm Caroline and I am a passionate photographer, former art director, lover of travel, the ocean and all things tropical! I was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia but frequently visit Virginia Beach and the Outer Banks! I travel as much as I'm able because I love experiencing new cultures and meeting new people. Being outside makes me happy and I try to bring the outside inside (I have way too many plants!) I learned to surf in college and love hitting the waves in Hatteras or Hawaii!

My photography background

Photography has always been one of my greatest passions. From the time I was little, I was fascinated with the world that photography opened up to me. I grew up with a camera in my hand, starting out with a tiny pink film camera, and by the age of eight I was saving up my allowance for my first digital camera. I have always loved documenting people and places, so much so that I  used to photograph all of our family holidays and create slideshows of the day just for fun! I attended college at Old Dominion University where I earned my BFA in Photography and studied abroad in Costa Rica where I created a video documentary of my travels, interviewing the locals I met. Since graduating I have photographed for Charleston Magazine, art directed and photographed for Virginia Living Magazine and traveled all over the world photographing and enjoying the true culture of the places I visit. I began photographing weddings in 2011 and totally fell in love! Capturing love stories is an amazing thing to be able to do for my couples. I love being able to truly capture love stories and personalities in a way that tells the story that is uniquely you!

My philosophy

A photograph is a special thing because it can tell an entire story with no words, evoke all kinds of emotions and spark memories from years past. I love my clients and believe fully in getting to know who they are because I believe it is the only way to truly capture their story and personalities. I take special care when working with my clients, from our initial meeting, through the planning process, to your wedding day, the delivery of your photographs and after. I believe in clear communication throughout the entire wedding planning process so that you know what to expect from me and I know how to best serve you as your photographer. Some of my past clients have become good friends and it is such a treat to be able to keep up with them, even years after their wedding!  If you think I could be a great fit as your photographer, I would love to meet you! Say hello.
