Loved my experience with Carrie!

Loved my experience with Carrie! She photographed my bridal shower in October 2023 at a tearoom.

Before the event and throughout fantastic communication! Emails are prompt, clear, warm and reassuring. Also we had a lovely phone call before the event to go over the event details.

Day of the event Carrie arrived early. She was kind to my family and friends. My mother particularly mentioned how much she liked her. She blended into the background most of the time capturing candid shoots, but would take posed photos of me with my guests when needed. She was very polite and professional throughout the event.

Getting my photos back was quick! It took about a week and a half. And the photos are STUNNING! Photography really does take an artistic eye and she鈥檚 got it! There were plenty of photos and all were well chosen with great lighting. The detail shots she took captured the essence of the day, making all our efforts and details we put into the event unforgettable. Every time I look at the photos I can鈥檛 help grinning ear to ear, because I feel like I鈥檓 reliving those moments, reminding me of all the conversations I had with my guests. That鈥檚 honestly a priceless feeling for me.

Throughout my wedding process I have become a believer in the value of a good photographer. If I鈥檓 going to put a lot of time, energy and detail into an event I want it captured. I was able to relax and enjoy my event knowing I was going to have beautiful photos. Even if I was going to take the photos of my event there is no way the would turn out as amazing as Carrie鈥檚. Her photos tell a story - my story. It鈥檚 so meaningful and special.

I will definitely be hiring her again for my future events. And I would highly recommend you do too!

My fiance and I were so delighted with our engagement photos! Carrie is an amazing photographer, and her warm personality makes it so easy to work with and talk to her about our vision for capturing our relationship in photos. She got the perfect shots, which we absolutely loved and are so excited to use for our save-the-dates, invitations, and wedding website! I am such an awkward person when it comes to serious photos, and I love how she helped me feel at ease and gave me tips on good natural looking poses in shots. I really appreciate how she went out of her way to scope out the venue and take detail shots, which later were incorporated in our beautiful engagement photo album. She really made our engagement magical and memorable. I really love her attention to detail and how she captured the perfect moments that illuminate our personalities and our relationship. Our engagement photo experience was perfect, and we are so happy with the final product. Thank you Carrie for our beautiful photos and spending the time to photograph our special day!

I must have researched at least 50 photographers before finding Carrie. I am not someone who likes to have my picture taken very much, and I was beginning to get nervous about finding a photographer that would capture my upcoming wedding in the way my fiancee and I were hoping for.
When I first saw some of Carrie's photos online, I felt that my search had ended! We got extremely lucky, as she was available for our date. She is one of the nicest people that I have ever met, and so incredibly talented. Her photos were all lovely and elegant, just like she is. It was a joy to have her be a part of our wedding! I felt so at ease as did my fiancee, that I didn't even think about the camera. That was a big deal for me! The way our whole day was captured was perfect, and we get to relive it each time we look at our beautiful photos.
I can't say enough wonderful things about Carrie, and will recommend her to anyone needing photography! She is the best!

On the other side of the fence as a wedding vendor myself, I had the pleasure of working with Carrie for a wedding last year in March, and I am still stunned by the calm classic beauty she was able to convey through her photos. Her pictures speak for themselves!
