Dara + Andy / Hitched

I have made many-a-promise to you all about what you were going to get to take a gander at in the near future on my blog that have never come to pass, so no more promises. Just a little cheesy idea this time. I continue to get invited to capture stories through beautiful photos and every time I am dying to share them with you, but all those little gems sitting on my hard drive and on discs in people's homes scattered throughout the south eastern U.S haunt me. I feel like I might get slapped by everyone of those images if I shared another image before them, out of order! The horror! (Talk about a "rule follower" over here.) So I have tried to obey the rules and keep some sort of order to things but in turn have not shared a darn thing I promised with you all.

I was trying to come up with a loose way to unearth the treasures from the past year in one post per week. And of course every cheesy name came to mind (Tuesday's Treasures, Flashback Friday... and on-and-on with the cheesiness. I can't help it.) Nothing came to mind that was cute or clever or witty or remotely cool in any way. So I decided to pick the cheesiest of them all and go with Throwback Thursdays! Holler! Which means that I plan to post each Thursday some images that have never been shared before (don't hold me to it.)

This week I start with Andy and Dara's grand December wedding in Wauchula, FL complete with a theatrical setting beneath the oaks, picture frames on twisted limbs hung with ribbon, a full orchestra, over 500 poinsettias and a truly beautiful bride and groom.

Thank you, Sarah Sandel, for your second shooting skills!


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.
