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, VA where I still live today and though there's no ocean nearby, I have grown to love Richmond and the amazing community I have here. 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 the Outer Banks or traveling to the beautiful Hawaii when I'm able.

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.
