Meet the Photographer: Caroline M. Holt
Next in our Meet the Photographers series, we turn to Caroline M. Holt of Caroline M. Holt Photographer. Caroline started out working for a wedding photographer in college, and now she's been in the business for 10 years.
Let's take a look into the life behind Caroline's camera.
How would you describe your photography style?
Documentary style. My wedding photography is focused on the details, the emotions, the stories and the people. I edit and deliver a lot of images because there is so much emotion to capture, and I want to give you access to it.
What are moments you make sure to capture on a wedding day?
I wish every couple would do a “first look” before the ceremony! It ends up giving the couple one of the most intimate times of their whole wedding day.
What do you love about being a wedding photographer?
I love getting to know the families! When I know you, I can make sure I capture what is unique about your love story.
What’s your favorite part of photographing a wedding?
The “couples shoot” right after the ceremony when my couples are all googly-eyed over each other and their new titles.
What price points can brides expect?
What kind of bride are you?! Every bride is different! Maybe you’re the groom! I have courthouse packages, elopement packages, small packages, large packages — $240 to $1,800. Call me! I charge $120 for engagements, bridals and boudoir sessions.
What’s one piece of advice you like to give brides on their big day?
Keep reminding yourself that you’re doing something fun. Don’t run yourself ragged worrying about the details. Let someone else worry about the details — like me!
When you’re not shooting weddings, what do you like to do with your spare time?
I’d rather be singing on stage! Shooting some promotional images for The Studio Theater and doing radio commercials scratches my acting itch for now. I am a thespian for life! I LOVE our theater community!
What’s your favorite way to unwind after a busy wedding weekend?
My favorite way to unwind is to download and view my product, take a deep breath and dream about my next wedding!
