Hey, I'm Carolyn!
Hi! I’m Carolyn, the founder of The Social Sipper and Photography Educator behind Bland to On Brand Photography. 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 hubby Travis, in 2018 as a way to create and share beautiful cocktail creations. Little did I know that it would grow into a lot more than a fun hobby!
We grew The Social Sipper to 6 figures in our first year (with less than 10k followers) using our background in the film industry to create stunning photos and videos. Now, we’ve captured custom imagery for over 50 food and beverage brands and have learned so much in the process. Seeing how powerful photography was for our business and the brands we worked with, we didn’t want to keep our knowledge to ourselves! We created Bland to On Brand Photography to share our full food photography process so food and beverage businesses and bloggers can take their photos to the next level!

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!
