I'm a luxury family photographer serving families who desire a stress-free & joyful photoshoot by providing an experience that allows my clients to enjoy each special season & receive jaw-dropping, joy-filled photos they'll pass down for generations to come.

Hello, friend! I'm Caitlin.

The Portrait Experience

the C&L Milestone Collective, Classic Session & Mini Session are each crafted to offer exactly what you need to enhance your portrait experience & memories.

Marriage & Motherhood

Your everyday is breathtaking.

Feel the overwhelm melt away... helping with the details is what I'm here for. 

As your photographer, it's my role to ensure you stay stress-free and can fully enjoy your photoshoot experience, which will allow you to enjoy every second of your session, and also to get those jaw-dropping photos you can't wait to share with your friends & family (and Instagram, too... let's just be honest!) for generations to come.

to you

From the moment she inquires, I make it my mission become lifelong friends with each client I serve. As a retired wedding photographer of 10 years, to this day, I'm still in touch with dozens of our past Caitlin & Luke Brides, and many have become dear friends of ours.

I'll be there from inquiry through gallery delivery for questions, outfit planning & whatever you need along the way. Everything about what I do is centered around how much I care for you as my client and friend!

My Promise

My #1 priority is ensuring that you feel loved, known and cared for.

Before each portrait session, I pray over my client's family and for their shoot with me- that their photoshoot will be a sweet, joyful celebration of their family's story. When you look back on your images, I want you to catch your breath and say, "These feel like us!" - and be filled with joy as you relive each tender hug, each silly laugh, and the way your little one held your hand, feeling afresh every emotion you experience as a parent in this fleeting season.

After 10 years and photographing hundreds of weddings, we shifted our business to fit our season of life with a toddler and another baby on the way. I'm right here with you; I know you’re busy, tired, and you want someone to plan the tricky photoshoot details & give you photos that document exactly how your family is, right now.

joyful, authentic marriage & motherhood

I don't believe clients should wait months to see photos! I deliver photos fast, so you can enjoy your memories right away.

quick turnaround

You'll always know what to do, & I will work with you to create natural & comfortable poses!

natural posing

It's important to me that your images look the way each moment felt, so I edit in a timeless, natural & classic style.

why you need a husband and wife photography team:

While Caitlin photographs the girls getting ready together, Luke photographs your groom doing the same!


With both of us there, we can photograph two things at once, saving valuable wedding day time!


As a husband and wife team, we have photographed over 100 weddings- creating consistency in our experience for couples!


Our friendship begins

Caitlin and Luke Clients are a very unique tribe. In order to provide an incredible experience & to be present as a wife and mother, each year I serve a select number of couples & families who deeply care about the quality of their family memories & prioritize photography. They desire a genuine relationship, an unparalleled experience, and to work with the same photographer for years- someone their littles can become comfortable with. Once we’ve determined we're the perfect fit, I'll send you my Investment Guide, and to safely secure your date, you’ll officially book me online.

Once you’ve become a Caitlin & Luke Client (cue the confetti!), you'll receive our exclusive C&L Client Resources, including a session prep guide, a preferred vendor list, and more! Caitlin will offer the option to schedule a phone call where, we’ll craft a custom session vision & list of most important photographs, designed with your priorities as the focus. I'll guide you through planning locations, hair & makeup, outfits, & more. Remember- you’re never left to navigate this alone. 

Step One

SessION Preparation

As your session day approaches, we’re here for any & all questions that may arise! Because I believe no client should be left alone to plan their photoshoot, I'll assist in every step of planning. Before your session, you'll receive a Pre-Session Questionnaire from me. Your answers help me serve you best on your session day! When your session week arrives, we'll chat one last time via email to ensure we're on the same page before your shoot, answer final questions, run through outfits, and calm any nerves you have!

All this preparation is how I ensure my clients receive a finished gallery full of photos that surpass every dream they ever had for their images! Bring on the signature C&L sunset photos, the precious baby snuggles, the joy-filled {and slightly chaotic!} full family shots, the smiling family portraits your parents & grandparents will treasure, & of course, plenty of photos of you real selves… since I've been a photographer since 2011, I'm a professional at crafting photoshoot experiences that ensure you have time for all the photos that are most important to you!

Step Two

Your Photoshoot Day

This is when the fun really starts! Don’t worry one bit… it’s our job to teach you everything you need to know about being in front of the camera! I'll teach you all of it: how to pose, how to look and feel natural, and you’ll never have to wonder where to look, how to stand, or what to do with your hands! After your first few minutes & set of photos, you’ll feel 100% confident and like a total pro… it never fails. Not to worry if you’ve never had family photos or if your husband hates taking photos… after 10 years photographing grooms & groomsmen on wedding days, I know how to help guys feel comfortable in front of the camera!

I'll ensure you feel gorgeous & comfortable the entire time, and I promise to fix your hair, make your kiddos laugh, and never let there be silence while photographing you. Your only job is to laugh & love on your family! Following your session, you’ll see your session featured on our social media, and you can use the final photos in your home and online. Please feel free to share with your friends and family, too!

Step Three

Gallery delivery

Forget having to wait months for your finished photos! Within just 1 month, your finished images will be delivered via a curated, organized online gallery! We encourage our families to look at their gallery together and to make it a night they'll remember forever… complete with a glass of wine for mom and dad, some pizza for the whole family, some favorite music playing softly in the background, and candles lit. (Cue all the happy tears!) I invite you to simply text or email your gallery link to your family as soon as you’d like to… it’s much easier than passing a USB back and forth.

Galleries are also accessible from a mobile iPhone link, and they are safely backed up online for 10 years.
Within your gallery, you can download, share and order prints of your favorite photos, and we organize the photos into easy to navigate folders for each year & each session, so you can always find your favorites easily! Now, it's time to choose images to hang on your walls, another step I love helping with. I'm over the moon to assist you with selecting the heirloom prints you’ll pass down for decades to come.

Step Four

The relationship continues…

I adore continuing our friendship with my clients long after their session has come and gone! In fact, I still photograph almost all of my couples and families an average of 1-3 times each consecutive year! Luke and I love grabbing dinner with past clients, & I love photographing them as their families grow. I'm ready to document every family milestone to come! Your first shoot with me is truly just the beginning.

I frequently photograph shoots for our Caitlin & Luke Clients' family and friends, too! I can't wait to continue our friendship as your love and family grow with each passing year. We will take any chance to catch up over dinner or drinks with our past clients, particularly if we're shooting in the city where they live! With Caitlin & Luke Clients living all across the United States, from California, to Arizona, Wisconsin, Florida and beyond, our travels are always exciting chances to reconnect with the sweet people who will forever be known as Caitlin & Luke Clients and part of our brand's family!

Sweet Words from Past C&L Clients

"Words cannot express how *highly* I
can speak about our experience with Caitlin and Luke."

- The Bozarth Family

"Words cannot express how HIGHLY I can speak about our experience with Caitlin and Luke. What grabbed my attention to contact C+L was how incredibly organized and detailed their website was. I could tell from the start that this is their passion and they put a lot of time and effort into creating their business. They have so much experience and their talent shines through the galleries they share on their blog. They both made us feel so comfortable with the process and took the time to FaceTime us so that we could all get to know each other.

From sending us the sweetest welcome gift, to the constant collaboration and updates, C+L are incredible to work with and made our wedding planning experience so enjoyable. The most impressive part of working with C+L was their turn around time for our pictures. They got us our entire wedding gallery back in just two weeks.

I am so thankful for our entire photography team for capturing our wedding day so beautifully. They were more than just our photographers, they became some pretty great friends! We look forward to the day that we can show our beautiful wedding pictures to our future children and grandchildren. God gave these people a gift and we hope that everyone has a chance to be a part of it..."

"Our entire experience with Caitlin and Luke from start to finish was more than anything we could have asked for."

- Lauren + Dean

"Our entire experience with Caitlin and Luke from start to finish was more than anything we could have asked for. Once we met with C+L over video chat for the first time we were completely in! First and foremost, they are just the nicest people. We felt so welcomed around them! We loved their pictures and we got along great, so we booked them immediately.

Throughout our planning process, Caitlin and Luke were extremely professional yet very friendly and easy-going. They were also very responsive! There was NEVER a moment where we were in the dark about something regarding our photos, scheduling, or anything logistic with them. We got life-altering takeaways from Caitlin and Luke: 1. Our beautiful photos. They captured our day so perfectly. Having them around on our wedding day was not only perfect documentation to the style we wanted, but it made our day BETTER. We literally had more fun with them there (which also makes the images better too). 2. A lifelong relationship. We shared such an important day with them, and they were with us every step along the way. Even after the wedding, we still keep in touch with them and have already grabbed lunch with them. This isn't anything prearranged, it's just something we genuinely wanted to do. We gained lifelong friends..."

"Where do I even start with Caitlin and Luke?! These two are the best!"

- Maeve + Elliot

"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. From sending us handwritten notes and welcome presents, to the continuous support over email and the phone when we got to some sticky parts in the planning process. My husband and I had a bit of a crazy time planning since he is active duty military and I lived abroad for most of our engagement. Caitlin and Luke were BEYOND flexible with us at every step of the way.

Caitlin and Luke were so organized and helped us plan our day of timeline. Some people hire "day of" wedding planners to help keep everything running smoothly, but if you hire Caitlin and Luke you DEFO won't need one of those. They kept everyone organized and on time and the whole day ran so smoothly and my husband and I had zero stress. Because they worked so closely with us and our other vendors in the lead up to the big day, there wasn't a single hiccup and we owe that all to their strong work ethic. We had over 100 photos within three days of the wedding and all of our finished photos within 10 days! I cannot recommend the two of them enough..."

I wish I could adequately explain how honored I am to be a part of your legacy.

My photographs will be passed down in our clients’ families, and in their children’s families, for literally decades to come. That fact shapes how seriously I take my career and how much of my heart I pour into every single portrait session & each unique family I have served since 2011.
