Happy Monday, friends! We are SO EXCITED to officially be launching our all new brand with you all today! This has been in the works for months, and it’s something we’ve dreamed about for years. It feels so surreal to finally be able to share the finished results with you guys today! Woohoo!!

We had the privilege of getting to work with the talented ladies at With Grace and Gold for our new, custom brand- and they truly knocked it out of the park!!! I literally cried the first time we got to scroll through our new website… no lie. Luke and I waited to look at it until we could do so together, and we even air-played our new design to our Apple TV so we could see it nice and large! 😉
It’s so surreal to see this brand & how well it represents the past nine years of passion that have been poured into this business of ours. We couldn’t be more excited to unveil everything with you all TODAY! We certainly didn’t expect to be launching a new brand in the midst of a global pandemic, but this new brand has actually been a sweet bright spot in the midst of a really weird season, and we’re grateful for how the timing has worked out. 🙂

⁣⁣The heart behind our business can be summed up in three words: “More than photographers.” This is one of the most common phrases our couples use when describing their experience with us, so those words have truly become what we’ve framed our entire business around. It’s our ultimate mission to be MORE than photographers to every couple we get to work with! ⁣⁣
Our couples are so much more than just a client to us, and we actually don’t even love the word “client,” because it feels so impersonal to us! 😉 We genuinely adore each of the 100+ past couples God purposely chose for us & are so grateful that our new brand conveys the level of care we pour into every client relationship. It makes us so excited for all the future couples we’ll get to add to the #CaitlinAndLukeBride and Groom family!

All decisions we make for our life & business will always be framed around 1 Corinthians 13:1-3. It basically says that if we do anything without love, it doesn’t matter at all. No matter if we’re serving a couple or teaching & encouraging another photographer, it’s our hope that this verse is apparent in how we live our life & run our business!
No matter if you’re a treasured past couple, dear friends & family, or you just like following along to see pretty pictures {and Oliver, of course 😉}, it’s our hope that you feel that same love & care just from being a part of this online community!

We want to say a huge thank you to:

  • Andra & Kelly of With Grace & Gold for the INCREDIBLE job on our new brand and website! We threw a lot of goals, dreams and ideas at Andra and Kelly, and they turned it all into the gorgeousness you see right here on the new site and blog. We truly couldn’t be happier and adored getting to work with them!
  • Our good friend Jessica Lauren for the gorgeous photos of Luke and I you see all over the website!
  • Our incredible Caitlin & Luke Bride and Groom community! We wouldn’t have a business if it weren’t for God and the hundreds of you we’ve had the privilege of getting to work with! 🙂
  • All of YOU – our family, friends and followers for all the encouragement about our new brand! The support we’ve felt is so special.

We invite you to spend some time browsing the new site! A few of our favorite features include the “His & Her” and “True or False” sections on our About page, the “How Working With Caitlin & Luke Is Unique” & updated galleries (!!!) sections on our Weddings page, and our totally new Education page sharing all sorts of resources for photographers. There is so much to see and explore!

Yay!! We’re so excited to launch today and couldn’t be more grateful to be entering into a new season for our brand and our business! God has been so good to us, and we know it won’t stop now. Thank you to all who have supported and loved us over the past 9 years since this business started, and the last 4 years since Luke and I went full time!

So much love,
Caitlin & Luke
