Melissa & Mike, So In Love

One of the most interesting and surprising things I have found that comes along with photographing weddings is the vantage point that it gives me to observe pure and simple love. At the end of the day I find myself surprised at the way and I have seen love manifest itself, those things that make the bride and groom distinct and unique as a couple. Mike and Melissa were nothing less than extraordinary. The only description I can give is that it is evident that they are "so in love."

After they said "I do", there was a hustle and bustle around them, friends and family milling about, a schedule whirling by, a coordinator shutting down the church, and then there was me and my giant camera invading their space and telling them what to do (I even climbed into the back of the limo with them) but it was like the rest of the world disappeared, nothing else existed, not even me, it was just a bride, a groom and their love. Thank you, Mike and Melissa for inviting me in to such a beautiful love.


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.
