We’re Caitlin & Luke, a husband & wife wedding photo & video team based in Bloomington-Normal, IL, serving Illinois, the Midwest & beyond! Most days, you can find us working together in our cozy studio & high-fiving each other from across the room when big things happen! We're best friends, and we love our pup Ollie, dinner dates, watching The Bachelor, & remodeling our new home... & Caitlin spends way too much time at Starbucks & Target!
We’re mostly known for our passion for PEOPLE over PHOTOS, & our clients refer to us as their friends more often than their vendors! We love to serve the world by providing brides with an experience far bigger than their wedding and by teaching new photographers how to love their clients well! We’re most passionate about our faith in Jesus, encouraging thriving marriages, educating aspiring photographers nationwide, and living as naturally as possible (with the occasional queso, Chick Fil A or Diet Coke because #balance!).
We're for the bride who believes joyful, authentic, & enduring love is worth celebrating. Welcome... if you’re looking for photographers who feel more like long-lost best friends than just another vendor, you’re in the right place!

Sweetest photographers ever!
I honestly don’t know where to start when I talk about how amazing our experience was with Caitlin & Luke! There is a good reason why I inquired with them before we got engaged in January 2018, and why they were our first vendor we booked just days after getting engaged. Every step of the process with Caitlin & Luke was so easy and natural. I first heard about them through a college friend who had recently gotten married, and I was obsessed with her photos! After finding them on Instagram and seeing some of the weddings they had photographed, I knew that we needed to have them as our wedding photographers. The photos were bright, bold, and best of all, real. I also loved the fact that they too are newlyweds, so they knew exactly what we were going through in that busy season of our lives. When we first booked with them, they sent us a sweet gift to congratulate us on our engagement, and have been so personable and helpful to us with all aspects of planning our wedding. When we met them for the first time in person during our engagement shoot, it felt like we were having our pictures taken by our good friends! The pictures didn’t feel posed at all; they told us to pretend like we were on a date and as a result, this helped our pictures to look and feel so natural.Sent on 05/08/2019
The same story followed on our wedding day, when we had a snowstorm that produced 6-8 inches of snow. It was definitely not how we envisioned our wedding day, but Caitlin & Luke reassured us that everything was going to be absolutely perfect, and it really, really was! They helped us stay on time the entire day, and did everything to help make our day go so smoothly. On our wedding day, we got so many compliments from multiple people about how professional and easy-going Caitlin & Luke were. Our bridal party loved taking pictures with them, and commented so many times about how they let us have fun during our bridal party portraits. Not only that, but the pictures themselves turned out absolutely BEAUTIFUL and we got them so quickly! We got a sneak peek of some of our photos just hours after our reception and all of our finished images just 9 days after our wedding. We are having such a hard time deciding on which photos to order as prints to hang in our new home, because each and every single image is absolutely stunning.
I cannot say enough amazing things about these two! Caitlin & Luke are not just exceptional photographers, but truly exceptional people. It is rare to work with vendors who are not only committed to their craft, but also take great care of the couples they serve. We have loved every minute that we have spent working with the two of them, and are looking forward to having them photograph many more milestones in our new life together!

Caitlin and Luke Photography- Simply Amazing.
Our entire experience with Caitlin and Luke from start to finish was more than anything we could have asked for. Once we met with C+L over video chat for the first time we were completely in! First and foremost, they are just the nicest people. We felt so welcomed around them! We loved their pictures and we got along great, so we booked them immediately. They were the first vendor we selected for our wedding because it was such a no-brainer to us.Sent on 04/15/2019
Throughout our planning process, Caitlin and Luke were extremely professional yet very friendly and easy-going. They were also very responsive! There was NEVER a moment where we were in the dark about something regarding our photos, scheduling, or anything logistic with them.
We got life-altering takeaways from Caitlin and Luke:
1. Our beautiful photos. They captured our day so perfectly. Having them around on our wedding day was not only perfect documentation to the style we wanted, but it made our day BETTER. We literally had more fun with them there (which also makes the images better too).
2. A lifelong relationship. We shared such an important day with them, and they were with us every step along the way. Even after the wedding, we still keep in touch with them and have already grabbed lunch with them. This isn't anything prearranged, it's just something we genuinely wanted to do. We gained lifelong friends.
3. Education. Throughout our process, we learned SO much from them. On our wedding day, we felt like posing professionals! There was such great teamwork and collaboration happening. Now, when we speak to couples going through the wedding process, we almost feel like experts because we learned so much from Caitlin and Luke. They are genuinely engaged in their process and craft and do so while being great, joyful people. I cannot emphasize this enough-- Caitlin and Luke are simply great at what they do AND it makes everyone around them better. That is an intangible that goes far beyond creating beautiful images. It was the "it" factor that we will be forever grateful for. Thank you, Caitlin and Luke.

Perfect wedding photographers
Caitlin and Luke feel like friends, not just your photographers. From the minute I met them in Starbucks, I knew they were right for our wedding experience. And I say experience because it’s not just the wedding day. Throughout the duration of our engagement photos they made us feel so authentically ourselves and comfortable, throughout the wedding process they asked if we needed help and offered advice outside the realms of what they were being paid for, and they will be as excited for your wedding day as you are (if not more, how is that possible??!). I can’t imagine choosing anyone else to document our wedding day - they care so much about you and your spouse, and want it to be the most perfect day possible. They go above and beyond. If you need help putting on your necklace, Caitlin is there to help. If you hate a flower in your bouquet, Caitlin knows you’re freaking out and will help pluck every bad flower out to make your bouquet perfect. If the guys need a humor break, Luke is on it with his boombox and sense of humor. Don’t feel like you’ll be comfortable in front of the camera like us? You’ll never know you were even in a photo shoot because they use their charm, wit, and kindness to make you feel like you’re the most beautiful couple they’ve ever photographed. I CANNOT recommend Caitlin and Luke more, of you choose them for your photography and videography needs you will not regret it. You’ll not only gain a wonderful vendor, but you’ll gain two beautiful friends. They made our wedding experience the best it could be and we treasure their time and consideration. Thank you, Caitlin and Luke, for the wonderful memories we get to look back on for forever.Sent on 03/05/2019
