Amber & Justin / A Central Florida Engagement

I started talking to Amber and Justin at the beginning of the year when Amber (a bit of a photographer herself) had spotting my work and fallen in love (btw-I love to hear this type of stuff.) We swiftly worked out the details for me to photograph their August nuptials and started to pick dates for an engagement session that would tell their love story; from the first informal date at a FSU baseball game (a mutual love) to their first formal date that involved an ice cream parlor visit (another mutual love, seriously I witness these two scarf down a sundae in no time) to a lake side, mid-run proposal in a grassy field. I couldn't wait! And then the Florida spring time rain came and every time we had a shoot scheduled the heavens decided to bless us with a torrential down pour. every. time. When we got rained out (for the about fifth time) just before I left for a missions trip to Mexico we decided to try for one last attempt at a pre-wedding shoot and planned for the Sunday I returned (less than a week from their wedding). And then we peered towards the sky all day and prayed. Alas...

Amber and Justin, I absolutely can't wait to spend the day with you two on Saturday as you begin your journey side-by-side, stepping forward in faith together.

A big thanks to one of my favorite places in Sebring, our adorable local ice cream parlor Banana Splits, for letting us take over the place for a bit on a Sunday afternoon. You guys are super sweet. And another big thank-you to our God for caring about those tiny details like perfecting patience and a little bit of sunshine after all the storms.


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.
