About

$1,475 Most Popular Price

Carmela Blackwell Photography is a Tampa and Lakeland area wedding photographer who frequently travels around the Southeast chasing waterfalls, gorgeous natural light, and down to earth, romantic couples.She is passionate about telling the real love story between two people who have chosen to spend their lives together. Owner Carmela has felt a connection to wedding photography for her entire life, so it seemed only natural to make a career out of this interest. She feels honored for every opportunity she’s given to be part of a couple’s special day.

Services Offered
Carmela Blackwell Photography primarily shoots in natural and traditional styles. However, she understands that each couple has unique tastes and interests, so no two weddings are ever shot exactly the same. The company specializes in making sure every moment and detail is documented, so they utilize second shooters and only book one event per day. They are also happy to work additional hours and travel to multiple locations as needed. Before the big day, couples can schedule engagement shoots to become more comfortable in front of the camera and create even more special memories together. All final photographs are high-resolution and delivered via digital files in an online gallery. Prints are available upon request.

    Beyond Excellent

    Carmela is the most gentile and kind photographer you will meet. She guides you during the entire photo session and worked super well with out videographers. We got come beautiful photos of our wedding day and engagement session that my husband and I will cherish the rest of your lives. She is very punctual and made us feel comfortable being in front of the camera for some lovely candid shots. Compared to alot of other photographers, her prices are excellent and she has far better picture quality than most. Can't recommend more highly.

    Knowledgeable sweet photographer

    We interviewed several good photographers before our September wedding but what stood out about Carmela was her knowledge of how the wedding day flows and her ability to listen to what we were looking for in a photographer. She was easy going and calm the day of our wedding which was wonderful because wedding days can get a little crazy. The photos were delivered quickly and were gorgeous. Thank you so much for your sweetness and help with our wedding day!

    Love Story Through A Lens

    Professional, experienced, easy to work with, reliable, and most of all beautiful photographs!
    Carmela is a true artist when it comes to shooting photographs that incorporate those unforgettable moments and combining them to tell a story that are forever memorialized through her work as a photographer. Those once in a lifetime events can be relived each time you choose to look at that picture or set of pictures.
    Carmela was the photographer at our wedding. Our experience with her was fantastic. We met with her a week before the wedding as she guided us through her thought process and the timing of when the sets of photographs would be taken all while listening to our input into what we wanted the photographs to display. Her artistic talent for photography led to a gallery of hundreds and and hundreds of pictures that were all laid out to tell an amazing story of a wonderful day! She truly went over and above any expectation that we had and we both were blessed to have her as our photographer on our wedding day!

Carmella is an amazing photogher. Her work is always beautiful and creative. Carmella has an instant connection with her clients . I have had brides and grooms comment to me that they feel like they have known her forever or like she's part of their family.

What an incredible photographer and artist! Carmen (and her team) have that special eye for details. She is THE photographer I recommend to my clients and they always thank me afterwards. Even when she is the solo shooter, she seems to be everywhere, catching every moment.
