Vancouver Wedding Photographer – Wedding Portfolio
Caroline Ross is a primary wedding photographer in Vancouver, British Columbia. Caroline has a unique style incorporating posed photos, candid photos, photojournalism shots and everything in between. Caroline Ross Photography began shooting weddings in 2009, when friends and family started getting married. With a Bachelor of Fine Arts and many additional course in Graphic Design and Digital Art, Caroline was comfortable around the camera and photo editing programs.
My favourite part about weddings is the moments between the big events. The quiet time right before the bride’s father father walks her down the aisle. Watching the groom fidget, or staying un-humanly still, standing in front of hundreds of family and friends. The bride and groom dancing together- after the official first dance. I also love how unique each wedding is, weddings that take place at the same location, with similar decorations and photos locations are still special and one of a kind. There is never the same bride and groom, same family and friends. Each wedding is incomparable, and this is what keeps it from getting mundane, the people involved in the wedding. Each wedding tells a story, and every story is different.
My Style: When I am asked what style I shoot in, its difficult to answer, as I like to incorporate everything into my weddings. I like the candids when the bride is getting ready, but also a quick semi-posed shot with her ladies. I think its important to have a few good posed shots from the day of the bride and groom and of their families- the photos that stay framed on your wall for 40 years. After those great posed shots, the rest of the bride and groom’s session is a mixture of posed and candids. I often put the bride and groom into a position and make them transition into another pose, or play out a scene or scenario. The result is often a candid, journalistic style photo.
I am constantly surprised at the uniqueness of each wedding. After being in business for 7 years and shooting hundreds of weddings, I still love hearing about each distinctive love story. It’s the people that take part in the wedding that make it special, there is never the same bride and groom, family and friends. My style is focused heavily on the individuality of each wedding. I give lots of direction when needed, in order to capture the bride in the best lighting and angle. My look is natural and I like to keep variety in the poses, lenses and journalistic style I shoot in. I keep my editing timeless – I want you to look at the album in 10 years and remember the moments and feelings of the day, not the trendy poses and editing styles that were popular that year.
I hope we can work together on YOUR wedding and I look forward to meeting you!
