    Oh man Caroline. I just love how you see and capture the world. It’s this honest story telling that is so artistically done it slays me. So beautiful. Absolutely adore the image of the ring bearer looking at her veil.

    You seriously blow my mind everytime. Love the way you shoot and approach every moment so perfectly, but keep it so real.

    My dear friend, you’re not capable of producing anything less than stunning. Monica & Luciano must be so happy with these! My favourite has to be the shot of L at the beginning of the first look.

    your candids of them together are so perfectly beautiful. the black and white of them in the back of the car is sublime.

Courtney + Dan // A Chicago Engagement

A few years ago, I put a call out for an intern. After many emails from wonderful candidates, I received an application from someone in the form of a scrapbook. Inside were photos, beautifully written words… and heart. When I closed that book, I just knew this was someone I wanted to have in my life. After coming all the way from Wauchula, Florida to Charlotte, North Carolina (where we were living at the time), Courtney spent three months shooting and working with me in my home office. She not only went over and above anything I asked of her, she loved on my family, and by the end of it all… became my family.

When I heard she fell in love and got engaged, I was over the moon excited to know that I would be seeing her again and meeting this love of her life. Dan & Courtney came to spend a weekend with us in Chicago, so we walked around the North Shore and downtown Chicago area getting photos of these two amazing people. Their love, affection, and respect for each other was so apparent, it’s hard to imagine these two ever being apart.

I cannot wait to photograph their Wauchula wedding this November.

    Those first three make me feel like I’m watching a Wes Anderson film. They are all truly perfect photos from first to last.

    Once upon a time there was a Caroline, and she shamed all other engagement shoots because this one is so awesome.

    That final shot tho O_O

    beautiful capture, emotions, details, feel. I rarely comment or view on other wedding photographer’s sites but just wanted to tell you I love it!

  2. -

    You know what I love about this? Everything! But you know what I especially love about everything here? How freaking real it is. Such awesome moments, so many fantastic, genuine expressions of joy. Yes, yes, yes….this is awesome wedding photography. The backlit night shot is also pretty stellar. So…yeah…all of that. High five!

    Love that walking up the aisle shot. Also great energy in the dance shots. Really creative motion blur, very brave, I love this style but always worry a couple would say “it’s blurry”!!

  4. -

    I want to nominate this wedding for some kind of “best use of a veil” award. Seriously stunning, with the light hitting it from behind in so many shots and that great one where it caught the wind. Beautiful work!

  5. -

    My favorite is the bride and her father walking down the aisle! You really captured the expressions of the couple throughout the day!

    Lovely wedding photo’s. such a wonderful collection of black and white wedding photo’s the looks awesome.

    Sorry Caroline I just realised my previous comment went to your next blog post Maria and Aleks. Just a quick note to say your photography is lovely and I particularly like the processing of the black & white images which many wedding photographers seem to not do terribly well IMHO. Thanks for sharing your inspiring work, Pervaiz
