chateau st. julien l’ars | france

I have so much to blog that I don’t know where to start!  I thought I would share a bit of where I stayed in France.  I took so many photos there that it will take a few posts to cover it all, but to start, let me give you a glimpse at how I […]

Caroline- I’m already drooling over the photos and uber green with envy of you for getting to attend this workshop. I had planned on going, but due to unforeseen financial circumstances was unable to make it. Can’t wait to see more!

lizet - June 8, 2010 - 9:00 am

lucy - June 8, 2010 - 3:52 pm

you had your own wing?! wow!

Cathy Crawley - June 8, 2010 - 5:38 pm

I don’t normally comment, but I had to this time! I was so tempted to go to this workshop and when I found out you were going to be there I told my regular blog stalker Vesna that she had great company at the workshop. It is so exciting to see the Chateau, but now I kind of feel that I missed out on the opportunity of a lifetime! Eeek. Ok, so Jose in Mexico will help me get over that 😉 But thanks for sharing Caroline, the photos are gorgeous!

caroline - June 8, 2010 - 6:42 pm

lucy, there were 2 main suites in my wing. my suite had 2 bedrooms. the other suite had at least 3 bedrooms.

cathy, oh you’re going to have so much fun in mexico!!! it was so great to meet vesna! hope to meet you someday soon!

caroline - June 10, 2010 - 9:12 am

hi kristin! the first image was shot on my contax with the 80/f2 lens. i’ll answer your other question here too. contax cannot use canon lenses. i have a few carl zeiss lenses for it, but have only used the 80/f2.

*holly. - June 10, 2010 - 11:15 am

MissK - June 24, 2010 - 1:01 am

It’s incredible, Caroline !!!!! I know this place! I lived there a few years at Poitiers which is close to Saint Julien l’Ars. All my family lives in this region. It’s so funny!

Paola - July 9, 2010 - 11:30 am

Ahhh! I sooo want to be there to have breakfast, lunch, and dinner al fresco! And there’s so much eye candy to shoot!!!! Total mental overload right now!

David Beauchamp - July 15, 2010 - 12:25 pm

Caroline vous venez en France dans ma région, à 1H30 de chez moi ( La Rochelle ) et je ne suis pas au courant. Quel plaisir et immense fierté cela aurait été de vous rencontrer. / Caroline France you came in my area, my home at 1:30 (La Rochelle) and I am not aware. What a pleasure and immense pride that would have been to meet you.

Sorry It’s google traduction lol.

Condor’s Nest Ranch | Wedding Venue

A common question I get from photographers is how do I handle all the post production when I shoot 4-5 sessions a week.  A common comment I get from non-photographers is how easy my job is to only work a few hours a day.  Recently, I did some calculations and I shoot about 14 hrs […]

Ahhhh I just LOVE YOUR WORK SO MUCH!!! Especially your weddings and engagement photos – so inspiring 🙂

Sandy - February 16, 2010 - 9:32 am

My dream job would be to become a food photographer, these images are just splendid! This place totally reminds me of a gastronomy restaurant I went to in Chicago called Moto which served foods in forms you aren’t unaccustomed to and they had the BEST service there. I really want to take a trip to Napa Valley with my husband sometime and visit this restaurant! Thanks for sharing and now I’m hungry haha!

Hanna - February 16, 2010 - 9:33 am

I am so glad you guys jumped at the opportunity! It looked like an AMAZING experience. You two deserve it! You captured it all beautifully. . .as always

Jodi - February 16, 2010 - 9:55 am

I’m a HUGE fan of your work and was thrilled to see this post! My fiance and I are going out to CA this Sunday (for our e-session) and we just got reservations to the French Laundry for Monday evening (we were on the waiting list, but someone canceled!)…it’s good to see that we can bring our camera 🙂 Thanks again for sharing such a unique experience and for your LOVELY work!

Nelly - February 16, 2010 - 9:59 am

So lovely Caroline! So romantic!!!

Jared - February 16, 2010 - 2:09 pm

Wow your meal looks amazing!! We dined at the French Laundry last year and it was spectacular. The Moulard Duck Foie Gras was my favorite dish of the night. Did you bring a tripod with you? We sat on the second floor and it was dimly lit. Our pictures were lit with the candle light and I was shooting F1.4. =)

jenny - February 16, 2010 - 2:36 pm

OMG I’m hungry again after reading this blog post and I JUST ATE !! I can’t believe you actually ate all that food ! no wonder you needed a break before continuing ! it’s almost like you can spend your whole day there! Love your food photos, and WANT TO SEE MORE !!

Ariel Yve - February 17, 2010 - 9:04 am

Amazing Caroline! Was is as wonderful as you’d hoped it would be?

Erica - February 17, 2010 - 12:08 pm

CAROLINE. These pictures are so AMAZING. Thank you for sharing them with us!

Sylvia - February 17, 2010 - 12:56 pm

Your eye for the small details in weddings translates perfectly to food photography. Absolutely lovely!

Adrienne Gunde - February 17, 2010 - 3:07 pm

Omg, there are no words! The whole experience looks absolutely amazing – the food of course looks divine, but I LOVE the beautiful surroundings & little “walk” breaks you can take during the meal as well. Thanks for sharing these lovely photos!

Cannelle Et Vanille - February 17, 2010 - 4:43 pm

absolutely beautiful!!!

Kimberly Taylor - February 17, 2010 - 8:42 pm

this post inspired me on so many levels~ your photography is stunning, the food looks incredible, and the fact that they grow their own food is wonderful. We have a restaurant just down the hill from us called the Herbfarm and it too has the five hour meals with the most divine courses paired with fabulous wines. it really is a special experience~ thanks for sharing!

Sissy Lee - February 18, 2010 - 10:36 am

mmm food porn! They looked so delicious but your bill totally scared me. Maybe I’ll just go and visit their garden. Lovely pictures, Caroline!

dorothee - February 18, 2010 - 4:16 pm

mmmm, everything looks soooo good! i’m so glad you guys treated yourself! of the salts, i’m sure one of them was fleur de sal. that salt is so awesome! it’s not too salty, but it enhances any food item it touches. i remember at per se, it was especially good on their breads and the different kinds of butter.

Joyce - February 19, 2010 - 11:01 am

Love your works! You are one lucky girl! I’m sure you totally enjoyed the trip with your great hubby. Thanks for sharing.

jen@greenweddingshoes - February 22, 2010 - 12:09 pm

ravenouscouple - February 24, 2010 - 3:35 pm

midori - February 26, 2010 - 12:55 am

caroline i’m DYING DYING DYING of jealousy. you got to eat at french laundry AND you have beautiful photos to remember that meal by.
