junebugHappy new year everyone!  This morning I woke up to an email from Junebug weddings congratulating me on making the 2009 the Best from the Best!  What a HUGE honor!  If you haven’t checked it out yet, take a look at all the amazing images!  It’s such an honor to be amongst such talented people.  The photo above was taken during Judy & Rex’s engagement session.  It was one of my early engagement sessions last season – it partially feels just like yesterday, but also feels like so much has happened since!  2009 was such an incredible year that really flew by!  I am so grateful to be able to do something that makes me so happy.  I met some of the most amazing people and traveled to some amazing places.  I am stoked for 2010 and this was a great way to kick start it!

I was planning to do my personal best of 2009 post but just never got around to it.  I think it would be appropriate to share some of my best of 2009 at this time.  Note:  I still have 13 sessions from the tail end of 2009 to blog, so check back in the next few weeks to see the rest!

Wow, this only took me 2 hours to gather.  But really though, looking at this just makes me realize how lucky I am to be surrounded by so much love.   No wonder I have been so content and happy this year!  It’s really an awesome feeling to be able to witness & document all these exciting times in my client’s lives.  Thanks for the amazing 2009!  Here’s to an even more exciting 2010!

  1. Wow! Just Wow! I came across your blog for the first time this morning (coming in via a friend’s engagement session), and I just have to post a note of congratulations to you — your work is truly stunning. Captivating. You have a great eye for incredible compositions, and you are so creative with light and color, shape and distance. You do such a great job on all of your photos! Thanks so much for sharing your talent on the blog. I’ll be sure to keep you in mind for any portrait needs! :) Have a fantastic 2010!

  2. Caroline, I have been following your work for about 9 months and I am always in awe. Your work is so creative and inspiring. Your work inspired me to finally take photography (a secret passion) seriously and dream big. I’m just in the process of starting my business and want to thank you for being so kind and answering that email months back and letting me know it IS possible. :-) You deserve all the accolades that come at you. Take care and I wish you much happiness and success in 2010!

  3. I’m a lucky guy, because I found your blog :-) Such a amazing and inspiring place. Thanks for sharing! Best wishes for 2010 … Katja

  4. All those are lovely, those are really best one. All of them are so touching, i cant stop staring at it continuously on each of them. very nice.

  5. Thanks Caroline! I’m a friend of Austin Szu (went to high school together) and he told me about your work. Really great stuff. I can’t stop looking at all of it! The reason I asked about the lens is because I heard you use a 24mm, and I’m in the market to buy one. :)

  6. absolutely gorgeous! i was going to comment on my favourite but as i scrolled down there were just too many! you take beautiful shots, you’re a very talented lady x
