Samantha & Bryan

Samantha and Bryan's entire wedding was themed around the oak. They were married beneath a giant live oak on the front lawn of Samantha's parents home and the reception took place beneath the twisting limbs of an oak grove in their backyard. Their wedding invitation (designed by myself) featured an oak silhouette created from an image of the same oak they were to be married beneath. But the connections ran much deep than that. The oak for them meant more than the physical tree they said their vows beneath. It represented what they desired in their marriage and family. To communicate this message even more richly they gave each guest as a favor an oak seedling with a tag that read...

In life, as in marriage, we are to be oaks of righteousness. The oak draws from its roots, as we should the word of God. It reaches up, as we should to glorify our king. It reaches out, as we should to save those around us and live by example. It gives back bearing fruit and shade as needed by those around us. Be an oak; plant your roots deep in your faith, drink up the water of life and you will grow, reach out, and shade.


About Caroline

I decided my destiny was to be an artist at age five when I won an honorable mention in a art competition in kindergarten. Ever since then I have been following a dream that has manifested itself in a variety of rewarding and delightful ways. I have practiced in the field of graphic design for over 8 years and recently acquired my Masters in Graphic Design at NC State University in Raleigh, NC (check out my design portfolio by clicking here if you like). But a passion that has stuck with me ever since I got my hands on my first Nikon camera in my undergraduate art education at Florida State University is photography. The instruction I received there was but a seed in what would develop over the next years of my life. Recently I have begun photographing people in their celebrations of life and could not feel any more blessed to be a part of capturing those memories.

About This Blog

A great american writer once wrote, "If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world, and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan my day." EB White penned the thoughts of my own heart. One part of me is a graphic designer working to challenge the world, seeking out problems and striving to create avenues for change. The other part is seeking out the beauties of the world and working to capture them in our memories forever through photography. This is what you will find here. Me enjoying the world. I have been truly fortunate to photograph such incredible people at truly beautiful moments in life. I can only hope that the images I've collected will forever keep alive those thoughts and emotions that swelled in their hearts and minds that day.
