hello! We're caitlin & luke...

traveling husband & wife wedding photo & video team based in Bloomington-normal, IL & EST. in 2011

we're playing with our teddy bear/puppy Oliver, heading on a date night, catching up on The Bachelor, working on our new fixer upper home, or planning our next road trip together!

when we're not serving our sweet C&L couples...


Most days, you can find us working together in our cozy studio & high-fiving each other from across the room when big things happen! We're best friends and we love our pup Ollie, dinner dates, watching The Bachelor, & remodeling our new home... & Caitlin spends way too much time at Starbucks & Target!

We’re mostly known for our passion for PEOPLE over PHOTOS, & our clients fondly refer to us as their friends more often than their vendors!

We love to serve the world by providing brides with an experience far bigger than their wedding and by teaching new photographers how to love their clients well!


We’re Caitlin & Luke, a husband & wife wedding photo & video team based in Bloomington-Normal, IL, serving the Midwest & beyond! 


goodness, we're so happy you're here!!

We’re most passionate about our faith in Jesus, encouraging thriving marriages, educating aspiring photographers nationwide, and living as naturally as possible (with the occasional queso, Chick Fil A or Diet Coke because #balance!). 


We’re incredibly honored to have been featured on the Cake & Lace Blog, the Bokeh Podcast, and to have received WeddingWire's acclaimed Couples’ Choice Awards for three consecutive years! But if we're honest, our favorite features are really the reviews our C&L Couples leave us after their experience with us!!


We're for the bride who believes joyful, authentic, & enduring love is so worth celebrating. Welcome... if you’re looking for photographers who feel more like long-lost best friends than just another vendor, you’re in the right place!

inquire about your date

"Where do I even start with Caitlin and Luke?! These two are the best! We were referred to them by our videographers and I am so happy we found them. From the very first inquiry email, they made us feel so welcomed and that our business really mattered to them. It is easy to get disillusioned with wedding planning when certain vendors only treat you as dollar signs. But Caitlin and Luke could not have given us a more personalized experience..."

“WE HAD OVER 100 PHOTOS WITHIN 3 DAYS OF THE WEDDING AND ALL OF OUR FINISHED PHOTOS WITHIN 10 DAYS!"

MAEVE & elliot

"Caitlin and Luke feel like friends, not just your photographers. They will be as excited for your wedding day as you are (if not more, how is that possible??!). I can’t imagine choosing anyone else to document our wedding day - they care so much about you and your spouse, and want it to be the most perfect day possible. They go above and beyond. If you need help putting on your necklace, Caitlin is there to help. If you hate a flower in your bouquet, Caitlin knows you’re freaking out and will help pluck every bad flower out to make your bouquet perfect. If the guys need a humor break, Luke is on it with his boombox and sense of humor..."

"they use their charm, wit, and kindness to make you feel like you’re the most beautiful couple they’ve ever photographed..."

Mallory & eric

"Throughout our process, we learned SO much from them. On our wedding day, we felt like posing professionals! There was such great teamwork and collaboration happening. Now, when we speak to couples going through the wedding process, we almost feel like experts because we learned so much from Caitlin and Luke. They are genuinely engaged in their process and craft and do so while being great, joyful people. I cannot emphasize this enough-- Caitlin and Luke are simply great at what they do AND it makes everyone around them better. That is an intangible that goes far beyond them creating beautiful images. It was the "it" factor that we will be forever grateful for..."

"even after the wedding, we still keep in touch with them and have already grabbed lunch with them..."

LAUREN & DEAN

"They are truly the most genuine and nicest people to work with. Caitlin makes you feel like one of her close friends from the get go, and Luke just makes you just feel comfortable. They help you plan for each aspect of photos and offer advice and a community for recommendations with all of the stages of your wedding and life as a married couple. My husband also isn't a huge picture guy so Luke was great at making him feel comfortable..."

"They are worth every penny, & we are so grateful to have them as new friends from this process..."

maddie & adam

"On our wedding day, we had a snowstorm that produced 6-8 inches of snow. It was definitely not how we envisioned our wedding day, but Caitlin & Luke reassured us that everything was going to be absolutely perfect, and it really, really was! They helped us stay on time the entire day, and did everything to help make our day go so smoothly. On our wedding day, we got so many compliments from multiple people about how professional and easy-going Caitlin & Luke were...:

"It is rare to work with vendors who are not only committed to their craft, but also take great care of the couples they serve..."

ALLISON & BENJAMIN

"Quite frankly, there are not enough words in the world to explain how fantastic they are. Caitlin and Luke have been phenomenal in every aspect of wedding planning. Whenever I had a question over email, they would get back to me almost instantly. The Thursday before our wedding, Caitlin and I had a phone call conversation, prepping for the day. The phone call had been 45 minutes long, and had never made me feel so relaxed and reassured our day would be okay. When Caitlin and Luke say they will do anything you need them to during the wedding day, they are not lying..."

"Caitlin and Luke, you two are one of a kind. I don’t believe any other photographer team matches up to you guys..."

MEAGAN & CARTER

"Makeup, cute outfits, accessories, dresses, and flowers (you know, everything a photographer dreams of) were rather overwhelming to me. Caitlin (and Luke, too!) could not have been more understanding, patient, knowledgeable and comforting for me during all of our photoshoots..."

"Caitlin and Luke not only know how to make a tomboy look and feel beautiful, but they also know how to prioritize, organize and give recommendations for your big day."

rachel & deron

"I can not tell you how many times I messaged/text Caitlin freaking out about wedding details that more times than not had nothing to do with our photos. She was so sweet and so willing to help in every way she could!! That morning she saved the day with extra bobby pins and her warm hugs when I could not for the life of me stop happy crying..."

"It isn't every day that you get married, & it sure isn't every day that you find wedding photographers that you come to love & hold very dear in your heart!"

claire & logan

"Caitlin and Luke were one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day! We were drawn to their work for the bold color, ability to show personality in their photos, and the beautiful portraits we saw in their portfolios. Caitlin was always very quick to respond to messages and helped me with anything I could've asked for, including nailing down a tricky timeline. We have gotten many compliments on our wedding photos and are so proud to share them with family and friends..."

"The amount of knockout wedding portraits that we have from our wedding day is unbelievable."

sarah & josh

"When we first reached out to Caitlin and Luke to enquire for our wedding we knew right away that we wanted them as our wedding photographers. They are extremely quick in responding to emails and are so helpful throughout the entire wedding process. They helped us pick the perfect picture locations, offered advice on engagement photo outfits, worked on wedding day timeline and so much more. Caitlin and Luke made us feel extremely comfortable taking photos and were amazing at providing direction and different poses..."

"We were even given sneak peeks of our amazing wedding photos at our reception! "

heather & jared

"They are such an amazing photography husband and wife team, who are always willing to help out with any part of your wedding day that you might need! We feel so incredibly lucky to have had them be apart of our special day and would recommend them to anyone who is in need of a wedding photographer..."

"Not only did they take beautiful photos, they were there for us throughout our entire wedding planning process..."

Jennifer & kyle

"They are super accommodating, professional, and their communication is unmatched! Not only did they ease my mind about feeling comfortable with them, but they gave us advice on other vendors, helped get the schedule together, and kept everything running smoothly the day of. Choosing them for our wedding was not only the best decision but the easiest!!!"

"Once I found Caitlin & Luke, I never looked elsewhere. From the very first time we talked with them, they made us feel more like valued friends than paying clients..."

kellie & alex

"From the moment we reached out to Caitlin and Luke they were responsive, enthusiastic, and so sweet. Their organization and attention to detail was so reassuring, which made for a much more simplistic planning experience. They are an incredibly skilled team and they were able to capture our personalities and vision perfectly..."

"Having a husband and wife team made for a more personal experience, especially considering they shared a similar faith background as us."

ashley & dan

"Caitlin and Luke are THE best photographers to work with! My husband and I started planning our wedding in 2016 so we have gotten to know Caitlin and Luke over a period of time on a professional and personal level. It is so easy to tell they love what they do! They captured so many detailed moments that we will be able to cherish forever..."

"From the first meeting with them all the way to our reception, Caitlin and Luke pour their hearts into making sure it is the best experience possible."

Ashley & KAleb

"The best part of the whole experience with Caitlin and Luke is that we walked away as friends. They are so down to earth, and have the kindest hearts. The quality of their work is unbelievable from getting fun sneak peeks, or your whole entire wedding gallery just two weeks after your wedding..."

"We both always just felt 'ok' in front of the camera, but when we met Caitlin and Luke, our worries were gone. Caitlin and Luke are the sweetest souls you will ever meet."

JENNIFER & JOSEPH

"Caitlin was so quick at responding and trying different ideas, keeping family & bridal parties in line to power thru pics and SO FAST at getting images & sneak peeks back! We couldn't be happier that we chose this beautiful couple to photograph our big day..."

"Not only are these two amazing photographers, but amazing people in general! The instant
we met them, we felt a connection..."

DEVYN & PHILLIP

"Ryan and I wanted younger photographers along with 2 people; we got lucky having photographers who are a COUPLE! They were so quick in their replies whether it was via email, text message or phone call, which definitely made everything a lot easier! They were always so polite and would be there in a matter of a second if we needed something (whether it was someone to vent to, or run and grab something during the wedding)..."

"The quality of their work is unbelievable, from a sneak peak only a few hours after their coverage ended or ONLY 2 weeks to get your entire photo gallery..."

MORGAN & RYAN

"The whole process with them was amazing and we are so thankful for them. They are kind and genuine people who care about their customers and the quality of their product. They are quick to respond and are so helpful and knowledgeable. We had a large preview of our wedding photos while on our honeymoon, and had ALL of the photos back within two weeks from the wedding..."

"Choosing a wedding photographer can be an overwhelming experience, but choosing Caitlin & Luke was one of the best choices we could have made for our wedding..."

CHLOE & ZACH

"We could not have had a better experience with Caitlin and Luke Photography!! They are the sweetest people and are truly gifted with cameras in hand. Their direction and encouragement during photos makes it seem effortless for the client which we SO very much appreciated..."

" If we had to do it all over again, not only would we absolutely choose them again, it'd be the easiest decision we'd have to make!"

jessica & jordan

" Both the engagement photos and wedding photos were absolutely gorgeous! We have gotten so many compliments on them. Caitlin and Luke were always quick to respond, had amazing insight to what they have seen work well and what doesn't work well, and were overall an absolute joy to work with. We plan to book an anniversary session with them for next fall..."

"I would recommend them over and over again."

JESSICA & TAYLOR

"They were always checking-in, answering countless emails, offering suggestions and locations for pictures, and they are the nicest people, ever! Caitlin and Luke both understand the stress of wedding planning, and they strive to make this part of the planning and wedding day seamless, easy and fun..."

"they are extremely invested in their clients, their work & their product! they care SO much about their clients..."

lauren & david

"They even kept track of the weather and snuck my husband and I outside the venue when the rain let up for 5 minutes. We have a wonderful range of photos because of their awareness..."

"on our wedding day, it started raining an hour before our photos were scheduled. Caitlin and Luke remained calm, confidant, and professional and found a great covered spot at the venue for our photos..."

Kerstin & kyle

"They did a great job at knowing how to have you pose, which is great for someone like me who would not consider themselves photogenic. They were able to use the time we had extremely well and efficiently, and it was obvious that they knew what they were doing. They prepared us with all the information we needed, they checked up on us frequently, and made sure we got everything we wanted from them..."

"It's nice to know that with everything that comes with planning a wedding, you don't have to spend time worrying about the photographers..."

Kayla & PHIL

"I loved how an engagement shoot was included in the package; this really helped my groom and I get comfortable with them taking our pictures so that our actual wedding day was super easy and relaxed. The actual pictures turned out absolutely gorgeous!! We love how high-quality the pictures are, the huge variety of photos, and the convenience of sharing and downloading them online..."

"they really took the time to make sure we were satisfied with all the details of how our wedding day would run..."

natalie & bryce

"Every photo was stunning and so hard to choose from because they were all perfect. Selecting Caitlin and Luke was one of the best decisions on our wedding day..."

"Caitlin and Luke have become part of the family and we appreciate their professionalism. Every moment on our wedding day was captured and we were astounded by the final product..."

brittany & danny

"Caitlin and Luke were the photographers for our wedding in early September. Both are incredibly genuine people and my wife and I absolutely loved spending time getting to know them! Most importantly, the photos turned out incredible! Could not have been any happier..."

"They were extremely professional and took all of the stress out wedding day planning..."

kaylen & nate

"Caitlin & Luke were the best team we could have picked to work with! They were always so responsive and made sure we had thought of everything we needed to leading up to our wedding day. We had discussed our timeline and details several times before our wedding day so everything went smoothly..."

"Working with a newly married husband and wife team was great, as they completely understood what we were going through..."

Anna & bryan

"Caitlin and Luke are the sweetest and the best! I have always loved looking through their engagement/wedding pictures and knew that I wanted them to be my wedding photographers. It was the best experience during my wedding and the planning..."

"the two nicest people I have worked with..."

madison & alex

"After seeing Caitlin and Luke Photography’s beautiful photos on my Facebook feed, I knew Caitlin and Luke were a perfect fit as my wedding photographers. Our wedding day photos were also sent back with a few weeks and were breathtaking. I highly recommend their services because this pair ensures your wedding day will be perfect..."

"Our wedding day went so smoothly with Caitlin and Luke, and they photograph your wedding day so subtly that you cannot tell they are there..."

It is so easy to tell they love what they do! They captured so many detailed moments that we will be able to cherish forever..."

"FROM THE FIRST MEETING WITH THEM ALL THE WAY TO OUR RECEPTION, CAITLIN & LUKE POUR THEIR HEARTS INTO MAKING SURE IT IS THE BEST EXPERIENCE POSSIBLE."

JENNIFER & JOSEPH

"The best part of the whole experience with Caitlin and Luke is that we walked away as friends. They are so down to earth, and have the kindest hearts. The quality of their work is unbelievable from getting fun sneak peeks, or your whole entire wedding gallery just two weeks after your wedding..."

"WE BOTH ALWAYS JUST FELT 'OK' IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA, BUT WHEN WE MET CAITLIN AND LUKE, OUR WORRIES WERE GONE. CAITLIN & LUKE ARE THE SWEETEST SOULS YOU WILL EVER MEET."

DEVYN & PHILLIP

"Caitlin was so quick at responding and trying different ideas, keeping family & bridal parties in line to power thru pics and SO FAST at getting images & sneak peeks back! We couldn't be happier that we chose this beautiful couple to photograph our big day..."

"NOT ONLY ARE THESE TWO AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHERS, BUT AMAZING PEOPLE IN GENERAL! THE INSTANT 
WE MET THEM, WE FELT A CONNECTION..."

MORGAN & RYAN

"Ryan and I wanted younger photographers along with 2 people; we got lucky having photographers who are a COUPLE! They were so quick in their replies whether it was via email, text message or phone call, which definitely made everything a lot easier! They were always so polite and would be there in a matter of a second if we needed something (whether it was someone to vent to, or run and grab something during the wedding)..."

"THE QUALITY OF THEIR WORK IS UNBELIEVABLE... A SNEAK PEAK ONLY A FEW HOURS AFTER THEIR COVERAGE ENDED OR ONLY 2 WEEKS TO GET YOUR ENTIRE PHOTO GALLERY IS BEYOND AMAZING..."

CHLOE & ZACH

"The whole process with them was amazing and we are so thankful for them. They are kind and genuine people who care about their customers and the quality of their product. They are quick to respond and are so helpful and knowledgeable. We had a large preview of our wedding photos while on our honeymoon, and had ALL of the photos back within two weeks from the wedding..."

"CHOOSING A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER CAN BE AN OVERWHELMING EXPERIENCE, BUT CHOOSING CAITLIN & LUKE WAS ONE OF THE BEST CHOICES WE COULD HAVE MADE FOR OUR WEDDING..."

"We could not have had a better experience with Caitlin and Luke Photography!! They are the sweetest people and are truly gifted with cameras in hand. Their direction and encouragement during photos makes it seem effortless for the client which we SO very much appreciated..."

" IF WE HAD TO DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN, NOT ONLY WOULD WE ABSOLUTELY CHOOSE THEM AGAIN, IT'D BE THE EASIEST DECISION WE'D HAVE TO MAKE!"

JESSICA & TAYLOR

" Both the engagement photos and wedding photos were absolutely gorgeous! We have gotten so many compliments on them. Caitlin and Luke were always quick to respond, had amazing insight to what they have seen work well and what doesn't work well, and were overall an absolute joy to work with. We plan to book an anniversary session with them for next fall..."

"I WOULD RECOMMEND THEM OVER AND OVER AGAIN."

"They were always checking-in, answering countless emails, offering suggestions and locations for pictures, and they are the nicest people, ever! Caitlin and Luke both understand the stress of wedding planning, and they strive to make this part of the planning and wedding day seamless, easy and fun..."

"THEY ARE EXTREMELY INVESTED IN THEIR CLIENTS, THEIR WORK & THEIR PRODUCT! THEY CARE SO MUCH ABOUT THEIR CLIENTS..."
