Some photographers take pictures. Others, tell stories. Caroline Morey has a keen eye to celebrate beauty and tell unique stories with every single image she creates, offering passionate, dedicated and dynamic services to her customers! 

As owner of “Studio Caroline Photography”, she works on weddings and special events, capturing their essence and the legacy of love of these very special days. She has fine tuned her craft with more than 15 years experience photographing weddings & commercial work after graduating with a degree in film from prestigious NYU. 

Caroline is based in Newport Beach, California, but works throughout the country & caters to destination weddings & events. Caroline loves to spend time with her husband, Moon, and their tribe of fur babies. She’s very grounded having been raised by the beach. She delights in pursuing her creative drive, whether designing, cooking, or traveling and always celebrating the coastal life by spending time at the beach, on the water…while enjoying fine food & wine with her friends and her crazy, big Italian-Irish family!

Our Story

Our Faves

     We've honed skills: connecting, styling, placing people in beautiful light, and creating the mood for them to "be" in the moment. Moon has a MacGuyver style while Caroline is soulful & sweet & the calm in chaos. She lives for the emotion held in these moments. At every ceremony, we remember how in love we are & what a privilege it is to photograph such amazing moments with our clients, many of whom become our friends. 

      Since 2001 I've owned a commercial wedding studio & blazed trails when the industry was led by men. I strive to create a beautiful uniquely authentic approach to my work and my business. My years in production, styling and major event planning have lent to my vision, timing and intuitive nature to make images successful.
We are experienced working with couples, agencies, media and corporate clients with exacting standards. You will be treated like family. Weddings, by far, are the most rewarding work. I’m so thankful for the incredible people who become clients & lifelong friends. We’d love to hear about your love story, get to know you as a couple over coffee or drinks and learn how we can create a fun, amazing day captured in images. 

     On 11.11.11, clouds painted the sky in Dana Point cliffs overlooking the Pacific, I married Moon Morey. Funny, ingenious and talented. Moon is a kind, creative soul with an amazing sense of humor. He's my mirror to me & allows me to be my best creative self. He reminds me how awesome it is to be in love and laugh with your best friend every day. Being on the other side of the camera was a great learning experience. Our style is distinctive and conveys the beauty of the moment. We have an amazing time collaborating at events.  

     Moon & Caroline grew up at the beach. We’re in our element when we photograph beach weddings. We love everywhere this business has taken us. We trained at WPPI & PPA with highly regarded pros, Denis Reggie, Sue Bryce & Bruce Dorn.

Caroline was fantastic. She helped me set up the entire surprise engagement, by walking the location and providing a step-by-step plan. Her photos were great and she made us feel very comfortable. Such a perfect day. I highly recommend her & can't thank her enough. 

"Nothing valuable can be lost by taking time."

Amazing beautiful photographs. We can't say enough good things about the professionalism & creativity Caroline put into capturing our wedding. We loved our e-session in the vineyard. Wine tasting and fun. She made us comfortable and thought of everything. She coaches us on posing so we looked great! Our wedding book is GORGEOUS. My favorite moment: revealing the glam book to my fiance at the rehearsal. The look on his face...pricelss. 



Keely Hepburn

Caroline & Moon are such a pleasure to work with. Caroline is very professional and makes you feel beautiful in front of the camera. She makes the shoot environment relaxed and fun. So much so, I've now finished several shoots with her. Her photographs are everything I'd dreamed of and more. You will love working with her.

      Caroline is a beach lover, adores all things orange, pink and sparkly, and she understands what it takes to capture an image that transcends time. Like the shimmering gold sand at morning tide, glimmering ethereally & then disappearing, so are the moments she captures. She breathes creativity, adventure and laughter. With her positive vibe: she brings enthusiasm & ease into her work, where captured images are more than just memories…but a legacy to treasure!

      From beautiful couture portraits to journalistic images of spontaneous moments, to the gorgeous details that weave the fabric of your day, Caroline is not only a master at crafting meaningful and stunning images, but capturing the emotion behind one of the most unforgettable days of your lives. From planning to delivering your beautifully crafted wedding book, her team delivers excellence in an unforgettable experience with champagne & celebration.

      One of the most striking aspects of Caroline’s approach is that she aims to tell stories through her images, strongly believing that each frame represents a once-in-a-lifetime moment that deserves to be captured and appreciated. Photographic heirlooms, in particular, are tangible, lively tokens that will last a lifetime and more, moving on to generation after generation to continue the legacy of love and happiness that is a celebration of life itself .

I invite you to get in touch, and allow us to design a beautiful heirloom to share the story of your life.

Let's chat so we can see if we're a fit and make your day beyond beautiful.



"Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still."
