I’ve been waiting months to share this shoot with you all, and excited it was just recently published on Style Me Pretty.  Tricia Fountaine designed this beautiful wedding to inspire brides everywhere to think outside the box and let your personality/story shine.  The message behind this is that we each much enter the relationship as strong individuals, but with an open heart for each other.  The open-heart altar represents the openness that they enter this union with, and below, the eagle owl and serval represents their individual inner strength.

Behind the scenes note: these animals joined us from a local conservation.  Working with wild animals is a whole other ball game, but I love what we were able to get in the short time we were given.  The best tip I can give you is spend some time observing the animals so that you can anticipate their movements, and be ready for that instant when they’re finally in a position you want… it’s a lot like shooting babies.  You can’t tell them what to do, but rather have to move with them. 

I love the hanging wisterias on the open-heart altar.  And the hanging candles…

And isn’t this bouquet to die for?  Looks like cabbage. 

And the dreamiest dinner setting, underneath a sycamore tree.  I love the use of moss as the table linen.  It looks like the table has been there forever and the moss is growing around it.

And how about this dreamy suspended dessert spread?  I love how beautifully it hangs from the Sycamore tree.  And again, the gorgeous moss table cover.

And how perfect to have a bed waiting for you at the end of the reception.  Kick off your shoes and snuggle up!

Wow, gorgeous work as usual!


Holiday Mini Portrait Sessions

Many of you have requested that I offer Mini Sessions for this holiday season, so I’m really excited to announce a collaboration I’m doing with the talented Nikki, from Akula Kreative.  Nikki is designing some exclusive Holiday cards for us.  Each mini session will include 25 cards and envelopes.  This is a great opportunity for those who are looking for some good photos to choose from for their holiday cards, and do not need a full hour session with me.  These sessions will be roughly 20 minutes (one roll of film) and will take place outdoors in Pasadena.  A welcome letter with details will be sent to those who have a spot.


Should I get my hair &  makeup done?

I want you to feel beautiful and confident.  Confidence radiates in photos.  I recommend getting hair & makeup done if you’re not used to doing your own.

What time should I show up?

Please arrive at least 15 min before your scheduled time.  The time you reserve is the time we begin.  Arriving late cuts into your time so plan ahead and pick a time that you feel will work best for your family, especially the children.

Can I bring props?

Certainly.  Keep is simple though as we won’t have time to do any elaborate set ups.  Your welcome letter will include suggestions that work well.

What is your cancellation policy?

With 48 hour notice, you’ll be able to apply this as a credit towards a future shoot… though it may have to be a full session if I am out of mini sessions.

Can I purchase additional items a la carte?

Digital files, additional Christmas cards, and other prints and enlargements are available a la carte.  The most popular items will be detailed in your welcome letter.

How many people can I bring?

Since this is for your holiday cards, I recommend just your immediate family.  This fee includes up to 5 people.  Additional people can be added on for an additional sitting fee.

How do I reserve a spot?

Select your preferred time and click “reserve my spot!” above.  It will take you to paypal where you can instantly pay and reserve your spot.  First come, first serve.  Hopefully there are no glitches with paypal!  If you are having any issues booking through the button above, please email me at caroline [at] carolinetran [dot] net.
