    Professional, Personable, Perfect Photos

    We used Carrie for our wedding in October 2020. From the first time we met her, we knew we picked a great photographer. Carrie is very personable and really tried to get to know us as a couple. Prior to the event she was very responsive and helped keep us calm and feel confident in our decisions. Although we had to change plans due to the pandemic, Carrie was able to adapt easily and make sure that we would be all set. At the event her, and her second photographer (I'm sorry I forgot his name) were very professional and did a great job to get great photos at both our first look and wedding location.

    As it is often said, out of all aspects of the wedding, the photographs will be the one thing that will last forever. You will not be disappointed by choosing Carrie.

    Best Experience Ever!

    I have had the honor of watching Carrie photograph hundreds of weddings, and because of that I knew the second I got engaged, she would be the first vendor we would hire! That is exactly what happened. We had Carrie shoot our engagement photos and our wedding day and I cannot begin to say how incredible our experience was. We were able to meet with her throughout the planning process and ask any questions we had at any time. There was always an appreciated honest answer! We had a tough family situation that we were stressing about the entire time and she TRULY eased the entire thing and made us feel SO relaxed! On the day of our entire family and party loved her, as we knew they would. She was fun and connected with every single one of them. They all can't stop raving at how awesome she was. As promised, about 7 weeks after the wedding we received our photos and they are AMAZING. I truly cannot explain how incredible they came out. She captured our vision so perfectly and we could not be more thankful! We are so excited to have her print out some for us to hang in our home and we are super excited to start planning our album, we know it is going to be a true treasured item. If you are in need of a photographer, seriously look no further, there is not a single person I would recommend other than Carrie! Also, I cannot remember the name of her second shooter, but he was AMAZING too! So much fun, took INCREDIBLE photos and totally connected with the guys, getting their true expressions all throughout the day!

    A virtual wedding to never forget

    Carrie was recommended via a friend in the events industry based off her professionalism and quality. She exceeded expectations. She was on-site early with all preparations taken care of. Trusting her to set up and "let her do her thing" was one of the best decisions of our wedding. She was flexible and resourceful with our follow-up shoot pending good weather, another terrific suggestion from her. Don't hesitate to entrust Carrie with cataloguing your memories and shared journey for your event.

    Small COVID Ceremony & Big Reception

    When my husband and I originally started planning our July 2020 wedding, we met with two photographers. One was very inexpensive, and going into our first meeting with Carrie, we couldn't see how we'd change our minds and spend the extra money to hire her and Dan. Within 5 minutes of sitting down with Carrie, we knew there was no chance we would do our wedding day without her. We felt very at ease and very much like fast friends. She is absolutely incredible at what she does, and she really cares about who she works with and makes sure that everything is exactly how you want it. We ended up postponing our wedding celebration and Carrie photographed our small ceremony in 2020 (the pictures are wonderful), and family picnic in 2021 (which we are so excited to see). You will not regret booking Carrie to capture such an important life event!

    When a wedding DJ hires a photographer.

    Having worked for 30 years as a wedding DJ, I've seen thousands of photographers. My wife put me in charge of getting a photographer for our wedding. I have known and worked with Carrie Dragi and Dan Roggi for over 20 years. We have done hundreds of weddings together and have seen how they work with their clients. They were my choice when it came to our wedding. My wife Betty has never seen Carrie and Dan work before. Within an hour, they were best friends. The helped us navigate personal, family and group pictures flawlessly and also help keep on time and through all the special events. Their service went beyond the expectations that even I expected. They seemed to just be there every time we needed a picture and even when I didn't think of it. We absolutely love the picture we received from them so far and are looking forward to rest of them. Betty and I can't thank both of them enough for everything they did for us on our wedding day. I can't recommend them enough!!!

    Professionalism meets relaxation and fun with Carrie Draghi Photography !

    Carrie was great from our first meeting after my fianc茅 and I got engaged. She was so warm and friendly. She went above and beyond helping us piece together the details of our dream autumn wedding at Saint Clements Castle. We honestly felt like we could go to her with any question along the way. That right there is amazing, since there are so many logistics to that day. Especially, if you have multiple locations besides the wedding venue to photograph at , like we did. We had a hotel, pre -ceremony location , church ceremony and venue to line up a timeline with for the big day since we weren鈥檛 doing a first look. It went flawless ! And we had 14 kids in our wedding party. Ages ranged from 13 months to 16 years old ( lots of nieces and nephews ) Carrie and Dan worked their magic with them and we were able to get them all photographed before the wedding ceremony even started. They made me feel at such ease the morning of, getting ready. We really had a lot of fun working with them the whole day. They worked perfectly with all of our personalities and it was a huge wedding party. I will be using Carrie for all my photograph needs in the future. Hopefully a maternity shoot soon :-)
    Sincerely,
    Becca and Phil
    Satisfied newlyweds

    Wonderful!!

    If you are looking for someone who is easy to work with, laid back yet detail oriented, fun, professional and an all around nice person, look no further and hire Carrie. My husband and I are not super comfortable in front of the camera and Carrie made the whole experience fun and easy. She took the lead and I can鈥檛 wait to get out pictures back! And I can鈥檛 say enough nice things about Dan as well! They make a fantastic team!!

    Carrie is, LITERALLY, THE BEST! She made me feel so at ease with everything! You can definitely tell that she has years of experience and know EXACTLY what she is doing! She never leaves you guessing about what you need to get done next. She is not just your photographer, too! She stepped in as such a great help on my wedding day when we found out that my dress had a missing clasp! She helped my Wedding Coordinator fix my dress several times and was such a pleasure to have!! LOOK NO FURTHER BECAUSE SHE IS AMAZING!!! THANK YOU CARRIE FOR EVERYTHING :)

    Wonderful!

    We had a wonderful experience with Carrie Draghi Photography. She went above and beyond our expectations - not only did she capture the essence of our wedding in photos, but she made every effort to help our wedding run smoothly. She paid attention to details like clearing rainwater off a patio herself to keep my dress dry, helped pin on boutonni猫res, and kept things running in countless other ways, all while capturing beautiful photos of our wedding. If I had to do the whole thing over again, I wouldn鈥檛 even consider hiring anyone else. Thank you!

    Destination Wedding Experts

    Excellent wedding photographer power couple! We got married at an all inclusive resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico. The reviews and experiences from the photographer on site there were not great to say the least. We found Carrie at the local CT Wedding Expo, and it was a match right from the start. Her and her husband traveled to Mexico with us, and caught literally every moment of our wedding. From the wedding rehearsal, to getting ready in the bridal suite, to the guys getting ready in the room, my dad and I having our moment, the ceremony, and the reception on the beach after. All of it was perfect. I will definitely hire her again whenever we have another life event to capture.
    P.S> The price we paid included round trip airfare plus hotel for the photographer.
    P.S.S> The pictures I up-loaded are only what I had on my phone at the time of writing this review. So many awesome photos, I don鈥檛 have enough room to load them all or store on my phone!

    Picture perfect day

    From the very beginning, Carrie and her staff were absolutely amazing. At the initial meeting I knew Carrie Draghi Photography was the right choice for us. Carrie took the time to walk through our entire wedding day, including a walkthrough of the venue, in advance of the wedding to ensure we were getting all of the right pictures at all the right locations. The end result was nothing short of breathtaking. Most importantly, she made the entire experience fun. Her and her team鈥檚 professionalism, preparation and know how made for a smooth and enjoyable experience.

    Our wedding was at a picturesque venue with a lot of acreage, but that didn鈥檛 stop Carrie and her crew from carrying all of their gear tirelessly through the scenic grounds while we were enjoying our romantic ride in a horse drawn carriage in 90 degree heat. Yet at every stop for a picture opportunity, we were greeted with a smile and a witty comment to make us laugh.

    Our entire experience with Carrie was nothing short of amazing. When we received the proofs from the wedding, The quality of the images were beyond our expectations. We would highly recommend Carrie and her staff and will definitely use her again in the future.
