I often get questions about our philosophy and how we get engagement photographs that are so unique and creative. The answer is actually quite simple: I listen to you! One of the greatest joys of being a wedding photographer is that you get to witness and document a journey, one that is unique to each couple. I love spending the first parts of our journey together getting to know you.

Brian and Joanne love the outdoors, they love traveling, but they also love to just hang out together and play board games. After a few weeks of exploring who they are as a couple, we started discussing ideas of how we would translate that into great photographs they’d hang really, really big in the house. Why not Yosemite? And why not make it something with that twist that would be *really them*? That’s how the couch, the frames and the books came to life. I hope you’ll enjoy viewing through their gallery as much as we enjoyed this experience! Can’t wait for the wedding :)

Who doesn’t love the fishies? I love the fishies! So I was super happy when Kelsey & Bryce wanted them fishies in their engagement session :) Bonus points for also bringing the jelly fish to the party. And the best part of it was: that was just the beginning. Hope you’ll enjoy scrolling through this engagement session just as much as we enjoyed shooting it. Can’t wait for the wedding!

I’ve done engagements with World War II planes and vintage Mustangs… but I have to say, it was quite the experience to walk into a huge Shelby collector’s back room and come face to face with a Lamborghini Murcielago (swoon!) and a series (a series!!) of Shelby cars. So when we got to select which Shelby we’d use for the engagement (what? choice?!), I have to admit I blushed and pointed at the 50th anniversary Shelby. Its classic beauty is nothing less than breathtaking, but it couldn’t outshine Linh and Jerome’s equally impressive beauty. You’d think they’re models – but no, they’re a super vibrant couple who braved the Napa rain to produce some of the most amazing engagement photographs I’ve ever created!

So thank you Linh and Jerome… and I can’t wait for the wedding day!

Love,

XXX Caroline

Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to photograph Katrina Patchett, winner dancer of Season 1 of Dancing with the Stars French edition. Well, here I am again, lucky to be photographing the winner of season 2 of Dancing With the Stars, Maxime Dereymez. Maxime will be the all around favorite for the upcoming 3rd season debuting in just a few weeks in Paris.

One of the challenges and really fascinating aspects of working with celebrity dancers is to highlight the different sides of their personalities, which really gets showcased in the way they move. I wanted to make sure I captured some of Max’s silly side, because he has these awesome bursts of fun/crazy laughter!

To finish it off, we did a few more with more Katrina and Maxime together, since they are also professional competitors outside of the show. Enjoy!

I’m so excited to show you this super fun & creative engagement session! Belen & Brian aren’t just fun… they’re FUN. So we needed a really vibrant, fun and creative way to show off their humor and their personality. There’s nothing like splashing paint all over one another, right?

Enjoy!

We are so honored that Jessica & Keith’s wedding was featured in Destination I Do! Magazine. This texan couple chose us for their San Francisco celebration – and what a journey it was! We started at the Legion of Honor and continued to China Beach where Jessica and Keith exchanged vows with the Golden Gate Bridge as their backdrop. I hope you’ll enjoy these photographs – we definitely had so much fun taking them! Congratulations Jessica & Keith!
