Autumn Photographic Competition Judge – Cara Lee Mc Laughlin

Cara Lee McLaughlinCara Lee has been in the wedding industry for almost six years, for 4 of those years she was a wedding photographer.

She photographed more than 50 weddings in her 4 years and even though she no longer does this full time, photography will always play a special role in her life.

With each Wedding that Cara photographed, she realized how much she loved being a part of the Bride and Groom’s special day, and slowly but surely, made her move into becoming a Professional Wedding Planner.

She loves the whole day and feels that one of the most important things is choosing the correct photographer. Photos are the only things that last after the dress has been put away and the cake has been eaten – although everything is important for the biggest day of your life, the photos will be on social media sites and framed on your walls for your grandchildren to see for years to come.

She has a love for animals, life in general and is starting to believe more and more in the power of positive thinking.
