Hey, Caitlin & Luke Client-to-Be! And welcome to the online home of Caitlin & Luke Photography! I'm Tori, and I truly could not be happier that you're here!!

I'm Midwestern farm girl with a big heart for people and a deep appreciation for meaningful conversations. My goal in life is to turn every passerby into a friend. You never know what you can learn from someone 'til you start a conversation with them. (Yes, I am an extrovert through and through.) 

Come to think of it, that is exactly why I fell in love with photography in the first place. Everyone has unique stories to share with the world, and I want to be the one to deliver the best images that help you tell the best stories possible! I believe the right photos can help enhance your story, moment, or milestone in such a beautiful and powerful way. 

I am very connected to my faith, family, and farm. I have a B.S. in Agricultural Communications & Leadership from Illinois State University. Go Redbirds! When I am not holding a camera, you can often spot me on the golf course, playing guitar, relaxing near a body of water, writing, petting a dog, or attending a community networking event of some kind! 

I’m so happy you stumbled upon this page! I look forward to capturing you and your family you soon!

If you're looking for a photographer who will just show up at your session, take some pictures, and email them to you when they're edited, that's not me. 

I'm fully invested in you and in your experience from the day you inquire with me. As a part of the Caitlin & Luke Photography team, we're always brainstorming new ways to love and serve our clients in ways that far exceed their expectations. We care deeply about our clients and we care deeply that they feel loved and known throughout their entire experience working with us! 

I'll be here swooning over your adorable new baby, laughing with your kiddos' antics at your family session, hearing all about your plans for after graduation, making sure you aren't even a bit stressed during your family shoot, and making sure you feel and look beautiful in the process. 

By the time your session day arrives, we'll be dear friends. It's really the best... and we can't imagine running our business any other way!!

As a brand, we love creating joyful, authentic and enduring images that bring giant smiles to your faces and happy tears to your eyes whenever you glance at them framed on your wall, on your iPhone wallpaper and in your heirloom album on your coffee table. We're here to walk you through planning the perfect session, we're here to come alongside you and celebrate you, and most of all, we're here to serve you in this precious season of your life- whatever season it might be!

Working with us is an experience... and if this experience is what you've been searching for in a photographer, you're in the right place, friend!! Let's grab coffee or schedule a FaceTime... I already can't WAIT to meet you!

01. You inquire!

Yay!! Our process begins the moment you submit your portrait inquiry! To ensure each of our client receives a first-class, unique portrait experience, and because I know I'm not the right photographer for every client, O only accept a limited number of sessions per season and month.

My clients are very unique... they care more about their family and creating authentic moments than a pretty pictures, and more than anything they want an EXPERIENCE and a RELATIONSHIP with their photographer. If we're a perfect fit for each other, we get to move on to the booking process- yay!!

Woohoo!! Once we decide we're a great fit for one another, we get to move on to the next step- officially reserving your date on my calendar! I'll email you a customized proposal complete with the Collection you chose and any customizations you made, and you can sign your contract and pay your retainer online. Now, we're official- let the celebration begin!

You'll be laughing, comfortable, and at ease within 15 minutes... we promise. We'll have a blast getting to know one another during your session, and afterwards you'll get to see about 50 of our favorite images featured on our blog.

"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. Every photo they take of any couple, or family, you can tell how happy the clients are and how hard Caitlin and Luke try in order to take the most beautiful photos. They are super flexible, they return the pictures within a few weeks of the event, the two nicest people I have worked with, reasonable prices, and their responsiveness is outstanding. I would HIGHLY recommend Caitlin and Luke Photography to anyone who wants engagement pictures, wedding pictures, family pictures, etc. It was the best experience during my wedding and the planning!"

"Caitlin and Luke were an absolute dream to work with from the moment we first met up. They were easy to reach, schedule with and were always available to answer any random question. (I actually called Caitlin from Bergners to ask her opinion on sweater colors for our engagement pictures.) Both the engagement AND wedding pictures themselves blew us away - I could not be more happy with everything they did for us. Do yourself a favor and hire this amazingly sweet couple - you will NOT be disappointed!"

TORI

Dear sweet friends,

I couldn't be more honored to be invited to play a role in this amazing season of your life. These are the days you will look back on forever, the days you will tell your children and grandchildren about, and the days of some of your biggest adventures. This day matters... no matter if you're celebrating a little one, a graduation, or anything in between. 

That's why we've put so much thought and care into building our Portrait Collections. From the amount of time I'll photograph you, to the number of images you receive, to the stunning print products and albums we offer, our Portrait Collections are designed to provide the most incredible photoshoot experience possible. It is our desire that your photography experience is as easy, joy-filled, and relaxed as possible.

Within just one month of your session, your images will be delivered via an organized, gorgeous online gallery, where you can print, download and share of your fully edited, high-resolution digital images! Your images are also safely backed up in the cloud. Canvases, prints, USBs, and stunning heirloom legacy albums are also available.




That's why each of our Portrait Collections includes a minimum of 20 minutes of coverage & digital files. That's also why, to ensure EACH of our clients receives a first class & unique wedding experience, I only accept a limited number of photoshoots each year. We run our business the way we do because we care deeply about YOU.

I truly can't wait to hear from you! If you have any questions or if I can serve you in any way, don't hesitate to reach out to me at tori@caitlinandluke.com!

Xoxo!
