Photographer

Caroline Ross

 On my days off I can be found running the seawall Vancouver, at a film festival with my spouse or at happy hour with the ladies. I love helping others learn and teach photography at a local college.

I’m originally from Northern Ontario and spent a few years living in St Maarten before moving to Vancouver where I live with my spouse in Yaletown. I studied at Laurentian University for my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree and Cambrian College for Digital Art Diploma. After graduating I worked for a few years as a Graphic Designer, Creative Director and Museum Curator before delving into photography full time.

My favourite part of shooting a wedding is creating cinematic photos out of every day romances. I  really focus on attractive lighting on the wedding couple throughout the day, as a slightly vain millennial myself, I understand the traumatizing effect of bad lighting during a beautiful moment. What sets me apart from other wedding photographers is my experience in studio lighting and fashion photography. I love getting to know the couple before hand to mirror their true relationship with each other in the photos.

I have a separate photography company that works in commercial and fashion photography, which can be found here: https:/www.carolinecharlotteross.ca

My Style

My Style? I love mixing photojournalism with classic portraiture throughout the wedding day, resulting in an editorial style, similar to what is often seen in magazines. I pride myself on my no-nonsense attitude which is necessary when dealing with large groups of people. Formals go by quickly and the family members can enjoy mingling at the cocktail hour. I often have assistants on shoots holding lighting or carrying my bags. I have an amazing team working with me; all of whom are handpicked and capable of assisting in the perfect capture of your wedding day memories.
