Hello, I'm Caroline Hilty...I've been photographing weddings and portraits for over 10 years and I love it just as much as ever! I grew up in Dublin, Ohio and attended The Ohio State University, that's where my love for photography evolved. My first job out of college was working in a 1 hour photo lab that had a small studio. There was something magical to me about taking pictures and having them printed.  At that time, the company I worked for had a small studio and that's where I found my passion for photographing people.

Live in the moments you'll
 never forget...

I love to capture the unexpected moments...
The laughter, the joy — the moments in life that are spontaneous and unpredictable!!  


After college I moved to LA and worked as a sports photographer for a start up LA magazine. I lived in the Santa Monica area and enjoyed life in sunny California. I took headshots for my actor friends and jumped at any chance to work court side with the Lakers or get on the field with my lens for a Dodgers or Angels game.

I eventually made my way back to Ohio..  with my husband and Great Pyrenees dog. I am currently located in a suburb (Galena) of Columbus, Ohio, but Hilton Head, South Carolina is also a second home for us. After years of visiting the Island with my family, I decided to move to Hilton Head and that is where I launched my photography business and married my husband. Living on the Island was a dream come true and I'm blessed that I get to serve my photography clients in two wonderful locations..I schedule several weddings and sessions in Hilton Head and Columbus, Ohio as well as nearby locations and cities in Ohio and the Carolina's 

Photography has always been my true passion, I have had the experience of running a business for the past 10+ years and I don't plan on slowing down. I have family and friends all over the country, so don't hesitate to ask me to capture your vacation out west or your wedding on the coast.  

My rates begin at $150 for portrait sessions and $1,800 for wedding collections.  you can contact me for more details via the handy dandy contact link or reach me here:
