I love it when worlds collide — Sean, the groom, has been my faithful letterpress printer for years and now it was his turn to get behind the camera. Him and his lady, Marta, are straight out of a Vogue magazine (just wait…) and I couldn’t have been happier to show up on a 78 degree beautiful September day to photograph the two of them.

And a huge thank you to the extremely talented Julia Manchik for joining me.

  • Savanah Loftus - Carina! What a stunning collection of photographs. Beautiful couple, those details, your understanding of light is off the chain. :)

    I usually HATE camera flash photography, but these reception photos look AHHmaazing!! Would you mind sharing a little of your technique? I’m stumped on how the people are nice and crisp while it appears there is a long exposure on the ambient background lights.ReplyCancel

They say timing is everything. And it’s true. Same place, same time (ahem, a Husky tailgate)…. and a meeting that would turn into a relationship. One that would eventually turn into a proposal (and soon-to-be-wedding) in Hawaii. These two are proof that a promise of a lifetime can come when you least expect it. So excited for Nancy & Greg. Oh, and throwing in a Porche Speedster brought this session to a whole new level.CASPhoto_NancyGregBlog-3CASPhoto_NancyGregBlog-4CASPhoto_NancyGregBlog-6

Theres been a funny thing happening over the last 6 months — opportunities that arise that really push me out of my comfort zone. Yes, weddings may be my sweet spot, but when Leah & Danielle of Equestrian Culture Magazine approached me about executing a styled fashion shoot for their new Fall issue, I knew we had something good brewing here. That little tinge of nervousness going into a shoot like this has been pure gold. Just enough of “gosh, I hope this goes well,” to create work I’m really proud of.

And I will say, nothing quite trumps the feeling of seeing your work in print. And I’m so excited that this is my first cover! You’ll have to pick up an issue to see which images they used in an amazing 7-page feature.

Thank you to the beautifully talented Kristen Lawson for hair/make-up, Ashleigh & Alexa for modeling, & Leah & Danielle for having me. This team was a dream to work with.

It’s the split second moment when the stars align so perfectly it’s almost audible. Well, it is. It’s me yelling like an idiot “holy sh*t” at what we just captured. And then there’s that quiet, slow exhale at the end of the day where you feel so content. Lucky, fulfilled,  just straight happy. Whatever you want to call it. Pretty much just amazed at the types of weddings you get to be a part of.

Sonya & Lane. They are the type of people who are such an absolute joy to be around. When the speak to you, they look you in the eye, speak with intention and make you feel like you’re the only person in the room. They hug, they squeal, they praise. They make you feel like family. And when that is coupled together with an unwavering trust in what you’re doing on the other side of the camera — magic happens, people.

THEY picked amazing spots for portraits. Thought about flow, transitions, timing, lighting, backgrounds & foregrounds and it all came together so beautifully. They involved family & friends at the right place and right time, and in turn created a wedding day that was exactly how they had envisioned. Never too far from one another the entire day, and always grasping for the others hand or throwing a wink or glance across the yard.

I’m so happy to have been there, on Whidbey Island, with Sonya & Lane.

And sorry I’m not sorry for the photo overload.
