Hey, I'm Carolyn!

I'm a San Diego-based Home Mixologist & Content Strategist who shares simple recipes for regular people to make Insta-worthy cocktails. Growing up, quality time was usually spent in the kitchen and sharing food and drinks is how my family expresses love. So naturally, I was drawn to creating in my own kitchen. My love for all things food, led me to a career as a food stylist where I worked with companies like Starbucks and Food Network and got a taste (literally) for thinking of food and drink as works of art. I started The Social Sipper with my husband Travis, in 2018 as a way to create and share beautiful cocktail creations. 
While growing The Social Sipper, working with different brands became one of the highlights of my week! Together with my husband Travis, we’ve now captured custom imagery for over 50 food and beverage brands. And as film professionals, we’ve been part of campaigns ranging from first time photo shoots to million dollar commercial productions. In the process of working with these businesses, I’ve learned a thing or two about what gets in the way of businesses reaching the level of sales and awareness they want. So now, I’m committed to helping food and beverage companies that understand the importance of connecting with customers grow their social media presence with a cohesive visual brand!

Hey, I'm Travis!

You can find me behind the camera for The Social Sipper. A passion for capturing memories on photo and video led me to a career in the film industry. For the last 10 years, I’ve been working with lighting and camera on large commercials. I’ve been able to travel all over the country and help businesses tell their story using video. Being part of these large productions inspired Carolyn and me to begin capturing more of our lives together, travels and cocktail creations. The Social Sipper has been a fun way to use my knowledge and experience with lighting to create beautiful photos and videos to share!
