(Photographer) Caroline Tran is a Los Angeles-based photographer who loves to travel and eat, preferably at the same time. She has photographed weddings in locations as far-flung as Hawaii, New York, and Thailand. Popular for her fresh, fashionable style, Caroline Tran’s work can be seen in numerous publications, both in print and online, such as Destination Weddings, Ceremony, The Knot, Style Me Pretty, and Daily Candy. Caroline loves the relationships she forms with the people she photographs, and appreciates the fact that her art allows her to participate in the milestones and intimate moments of her clients’ lives. She believes there is no greater honor than to share in someone’s joy by photographing their engagement, wedding, or growing family. Caroline’s camera allows her to be her own boss, and her photography business has become a family affair. Her husband, Jonathan, is her business partner and second shooter, and their son often accompanies them on photo shoots.
