Caroline and Gregg are a dream husband and wife duo. With their unique photography styles combined, this power couple creates cohesive, one-of-a-kind collections that clients will instantly fall in love with.
Caroline and I met at the Battery on a beautiful Spring day. We shared some delicious queso and nachos at El Felix – SO yummy! During our interview, I truly felt like I was out for a casual girl’s day with someone that I have known forever. Caroline was so easy to talk to and I loved getting to learn so much more about her and her husband and their business together.
CW: The unspoken connection. I say that because there are a lot of times that we just look at each other and know what the other person is thinking. I don’t know if I could feel that comfortable with someone that I wasn’t married to.
CW: We bicker, Caroline laughs. We both think we’re right. We’re both primary photographers, which is great for a client, but for us, it sometimes makes it more challenging because at times we both want the same shots.
CW: We have two. Amelia is almost two and Brennan turns one on Thursday.
CW: Amelia Island, Florida
CW: Granola bars or a banana. On wedding days, definitely granola bars.
CW: Crazy Rich Asians
CW: Monday’s are office. Tuesday’s, Wednesday’s, and Thursday’s are shoots. Friday’s are office and Saturday’s are weddings. Sunday’s are for rest.
AS: Either social media or reality TV. Real Housewives of ANYTHING! I also like true crime podcasts.
CW: I do a lot of kids shoots for my past clients. I love getting to work with them again because after their wedding you miss them.
CW: At a bar in Buckhead, Tin Lizzy’s. We were both out with our own friends and I saw him sitting at the bar. I reached over and stole a sip of his beer to be funny!
CW: Two dogs. They are both tiny mutts. When we got Raleigh, they told us that she was going to be 55 to 60 pounds, so I was wanting to go hiking with her, but she is only 13 pounds! Dublin is a Cocker Spaniel Lab. She is only 18 pounds.
CW: Yes, I do. Chocolate chip cookies.
CW: I was a paper girl. I delivered papers when I was 12 years old on a bicycle.
CW: Extrovert. Yea, I’m super quiet, Caroline laughs. Gregg’s more of an introverted extrovert. He’s an observer, but I have brought out the extrovert in him.
CW: In Savannah in Wright Square. We went for Gregg’s birthday and he had taken a picture of a rose holding the ring in the square earlier that day. When we were in the square together later, he told me to come look at this picture that he had taken and then he got down on his knee! I will never forget that there was this random man standing next to us that was singing at the top of his lungs because he was so happy for us! That night, Gregg invited all of our friends and family to Savannah to celebrate on a rooftop bar. I didn’t know he could be that romantic!
CW: It is great, but I don’t have a choice. He always picks out what we are eating, and if I say I don’t want that, he tells me I can cook then. But that’s not going to happen, Caroline laughs.
CW: Spend the money on something you want because if you try to go the cheap route, you’ll spend a lot of time regretting it.
CW: Hmmm, this is hard. Probably my dad because he was a small business owner. He was literally the coolest person I know. He was a fighter pilot in the Air Force. He did things the way he wanted. I’ve learned over the year that he is smooth. He would always tell me to play it cool. He was also an athlete. He used to play college basketball and I grew up playing sports, so I thought that was cool too.
CW: Swimming and soccer
CW: London. I’m half British and because my brother lives over in London.
CW: That I’m a visionary. I had an assistant work with us from The Creative Circus. She was on a newborn shoot with me and she told me afterward that “I shouldn’t have done this, but I doubted you.” As I was shooting, she didn’t get it, but then afterward when she saw the pictures, she understood why I was doing things the way I did and said I was a visionary.
CW: Wine spritzers
CW: Heavy vanilla, not like a fluffy, light vanilla. More of a dense white chocolate.
CW: Going for walks
CW: The Band
LET’S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS
CW: Yes. Mine is organization and portraiture. Gregg’s is technical and he catches the key shots, like the first kiss. He is more behind the scenes, like he packs the bags and cleans everything. I more organize and schedule everything and do our emails.
CW: Bridal portraits. I call it their bridal glory. When you’re in your veil and dress and swishing around in your dress. It is everything.
CW: Somebody who is invested in photography. They don’t have to know anything about photography, but they have to value photography. Not the monetary value, but truly see the sentimental value.
CW: Living up to expectations. Outdoing ourselves. I’m not competing against other photographers. I’m trying to shoot a better picture than myself.
CW: Trust your photographer and give them enough time.
CW: In sales of some sort. Gregg would be an architect.
CW: Traveling a lot more, for both Gregg’s commercial work and our weddings. Gregg right now does commercial work Monday through Friday and then our weddings together on the weekend.
CW: 20-25 per year, but we are trying to keep it more around 20.
CW: Gregg taught me everything I know. I was in commercial real estate and Gregg was an architecture photographer, so he did not shoot people. One of my friends asked me if Gregg would shoot their wedding, and he agreed to do it as long as I agreed to help him. He is the one who introduced me to everything. He encouraged me to look on the internet and in magazines to find things I liked and he taught me how to get there.
CW: I am more romantic, and he is more modern. I focus more on details shots, and Gregg’s shots are more cool. My shots are the pictures that people say “Awe, that’s pretty.” His shots are the shots that people say “That is cool.” It blends well together, so we don’t fight over that. They are cohesive together.
