Hope + David (...and Sarah + Caroline)

Hello all! I was planning for my next wedding post to be Andy and Dara's gorgeous and grand December wedding but I thought I would sneak another one in here for you. A few months back I got a phone call from one of my favorite photographer friends, Sarah, with a request, could I step in to photograph a wedding she had contracted in early March in case of a crisis? I of course, said yes and then simultaneously put the date on hold and began praying that said crisis would stay far, far away for my dear friend.

A few weeks passed. Crisis arrived. Sadness abounded.

Sarah and I began to work through the details of how I was to be her "photographer ambassador" at the upcoming wedding. Lucky for us Hope and David are some of the sweetest and understanding people on the planet. And thank you to all the folks in the community that eased their nerves over not having the beloved Sarah but rather this girl Caroline, whom they didn't know much about at the time, there on their big day. :) I loved getting to know Hope and David plus their friends and family. I adored being a part of their beautiful celebration. And I am thankful that I had the opportunity to step in and partner with a dear friend.

Sarah wrote a bit about the process in a teaser post on her blog here.

And to find the full post of the Sarah + Caroline collaboration and the images of the Hope + David wedding day check out Sarah's blog post here.


And another big thank you to Jen Lindley for stepping in and helping me out on the wedding day by carrying things, running around, and forgiving me when I got a little bossy from time to time. Collaboration rocks! Thanks Jen!


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.
