Allison & Travis' Wedding

Early last year I spent an afternoon helping my dear friend Lauren Waugh letterpress beautifully designed invitations for what looked like a fabulous wedding taking place in the spring. Come to find out Lauren's friend's Allison and Travis were searching for a wedding photographer and, well... the shoe fit! Allison and I had several long distance conversations (she was planning her Statesville, NC wedding from California), and the more we talked the more and more excited I got about the day.

I grabbed my favorite photo-buddy Pam Brennan and we headed out to Statesville last Saturday. The wedding was so much fun and despite the threat of rain it held off until just as the reception was ending. The whole day turned out beautiful! My favorite things about weddings are all those little details that make the day uniquely representative of the bride and groom. From a oddly funny card, a sapphire ring, an "Ace" of a cake, a beautifully rusting bicycle filled with flowers to the uncorking of a bottle of champagne that was given to Allison's parents the day she was born, the entire day was filled with little mementos of their lives up to this day. These pictures now mark the beginning of a new collection from this day forward.

I thought I would also include images of the beautiful invitation components Lauren designed (photos by Alberto Rigau)...


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.
