I approach weddings with a quiet presence and an eye for authenticity. In practice, this entails moving with a calm demeanor and a desire to remain unnoticed, finding small moments of intimacy in the midst of public celebrations. I anticipate and document moments as they naturally occur, without direction or interference. My ultimate goal is a highly personal book that is both beautiful and meaningful, recognizing that authenticity is integral to that meaning.

Our experience with Carl was amazing! He is a true artist and not just a wedding photographer. We received our pictures and they are stunning. We were astounded at the variety of photographs he was able to capture. He was everywhere. We were trying to figure out how he got around so quickly to take all the photos. Black and white and candid photos are timeless and elegant. Carl delivered on this concept 100%. Thank you, Carl!

Carl photographed our wedding at the Brown Palace in Denver. We were initially drawn to Carl because of the amazing portfolio he has on his website. We loved his modern and unique style, and his keen eye and ability to capture the most incredible moments. Carl did just that for us on our wedding day. Our photographs are amazing. We continue to look over them and say "how did he get that shot?!?", but he did. All the moments that we talked about the days to follow, he caught on camera with his distinctive viewpoint and style. He also did it in a completely inconspicuous and unobtrusive way.
We were told when we got engaged that there are only a few things you should really invest in, one being your wedding photographer. Carl is an investment well made. The album he created for us post-wedding was also perfect--modern and beautiful. I can't recommend Carl highly enough. He is an astute documentarian, and he will give you the most awesome wedding photographs. You won't be sorry.

If you are looking for beautiful photos that will capture both the essence and emotions of the day in equal servings, giving permanent life to those oh-so-fleeting life's-best moments, then you can do no better than Carl Bower.
We were lucky enough to have Carl photograph our wedding in Vail, Colorado. While it was a spectacular backdrop, it was the unique and intimate moments that Carl captured in our photos that show the true beauty of the day. He exceeded even our high-expectations in the final collection of photos, in which he was able to capture the intimacy of the day, not just between us but among all of our guests. Very simply, we loved each and every single photo.
He is an incredibly talented photographer whose professionalism, work ethic, experience, and eye for detail are all represented in his work. We could not be happier to have these photos serve as our daily reminder of the warmth and love of our special day.
Carl was one of the first photographers to capture a wedding at Rose Hill Manor. The small black and white album he provided us those many years ago, is to this day the client favorite in our showroom. The skiil and nuance that reads in his photos is amazing.
