While Tina and I were brainstorming for their engagement shoot, she sent me a photo from one of max wanger’s engagement session as her inspiration.   I was in love with the pink balloon!  When they showed up to our shoot with a pink balloon, I was as like a kid in a candy store!   They are so fun and cute together.  It was pure joy running around Griffith Observatory with them.  I love the pink balloon they brought along – I’m so glad they came across the idea!  Thanks max for the inspiration!

Don’t let the balloon’s cuteness fool you – it was really strong!!

Thank you Tina & Tim for such a fun shoot!  I can’t wait for your wedding in April!

  1. Caroline I am working on featuring a blog post focused on balloons used in wedding photography and would love to feature you. I first wanted to check in with you to see if you’d be okay with that! I will for sure post a link to your website and credit you as the photographer. The images are gorgeous!!!

    Thanks Caroline,


  2. Caroline, I am new to your website and love these photos and pink balloon for this e-session for T and T. Very nice! So subtle and soft and to me very vintage.

  3. Hi Caroline! I had to come on your blog and see the infamous balloon :) Your images are A-MA-ZING! Fabulous work! It was great meeting you two yesterday!

  4. Mary, yes! Thank you so much for sharing that link. My client approached me with the idea she saw from Max, but I didn’t know the girl was jhoana Goddard. Thank you for that info!

  5. Oh wow, I am so glad I stumbled upon your site through weddingsintheworld. I noticed your last name, so I had to check you out for myself! I love this balloon theme you got going on in this e-session. So clever and cute. The last 3 shots are truly awesome!

  6. Caroline you rock! These are adorable, I think the one where he’s floating away is one of my all time favorite photos! I can’t stop staring at it :)

  7. Oh-em-gee, LOVE this session and of course ADORE the pink balloon! They’re such a cute couple and the balloon definitely adds a wonderful touch to every image! I have been dying to do a session with balloons :) Really awesome shots and love the post-processing on them as well!
