wedding photographer sacramento

Hi I’m Olin!

So, say you’re strolling along, and you happened to walk smack into Caroline’s (her good friends call her Olin) California photography studio. Bam! First you’d likely notice her doors are always open and her studio is always awesome! It’s there where you’ll find her hard at work with best puppy friends Milou and Mayhem. Or sometimes, chillin’ on her Wii or Xbox while listening to the Head and the Heart. When she’s not there, she’s frequently photographing weddings or boudoir portraits all over the world.

You’d also find her totally obsessing over design, recipes, magazines and Pinterest. She’s quite frequently nerding out over random light, vacations to far away lands, non fiction books and yummy pastries, all while finding the humor and coolness in obscure moments. When she’s not squeeing over chunky cocktail rings, Facebook, or dog-friendly beaches, she’s cuddling with her dogs, hanging with friends and enjoying sashimi and baking cupcakes (not necessarily in that order). She’s also hoping to make her dreams of photographing weddings in New Orleans, India, Europe, Bali and all over the world come true!

Many happy places love Caroline, including Martha Stewart, Huffington Post, Huffington Post Weddings, New York Times, Refinery29, FoxNews, Bride’s Magazine, Modern Brides, Grace Ormonde, The Knot, Style Me Pretty, 100 Layer Cake, Green Wedding Shoes, Brooklyn Bride, WeddingChicks, Today’s Bride and PhotoPro Magazine. Caroline was also named one of Rangefinder Magazine’s Top 30 Rising Stars in 2012 and awarded Junebug’s  2014 Best of the Best Engagement Photograph. Not bad, right? She still can’t believe it all either!

When not obsessed with photography, food, travelling puppies and all things sparkly, Caroline is also working on her fine art boudoir portraiture, snazzy open air photo booth, Giggle & Riot Funbooths and her woman-centric non-profit, HelloXOXO, a place that melds fun, femininity and community.


I completely love

couples who are madly in love
the warm glow of sunlight
long cross country travels in the car
water, swimming with Milou, and oh jet skiing!
desserts, parties and gelato
my two portuguese water dogs, Milou and Mayhem, they are the cutest
to cook for the people I love
when a couple is magically in love and so kind to each other, I call it love drunk
that people are becoming more and more eco conscious
fashion. clothes are so much fun
beautiful, romantic, whimsical things
people who are authentically themselves
clients who appreciate my artistry
the little details in life
typography. I’m a font nerd
food and being a pescetarian
unexpected moments of happiness
dancing by myself in my apartment. with Mayhem
the color grey
laughing with my clients during the wedding day
sitting around a fire talking
snuggling. I love snuggling
being a woman and sometimes doing girly things
my xbox, I have a serious relationship with it
people who love to have fun
my job. absolutely, madly, in love
