Great experience with a professional friendly photographer.
Carol was very flexible and dedicated her time to get the best shots for us. She had great experience and knowledge of the city and took us to some prime locations. We ended up with multiple "favorite" photos.

We booked Carol as our photographer because she photographed my friend’s wedding, so we knew going in how good of a job she does. Being a bridesmaid I saw how professional she was and was blown away by her pictures. I booked Carol for our January wedding with high expectations and I can honestly say that she exceeded them. Before the wedding Carol and I spoke regularly and she really helped us coordinate a lot of the details for the big day because we didn’t hire a wedding planner. She is very organized and offers great suggestions. The day of the wedding Carol and her second shooter learned everyone in the bridal party’s name. She instantly made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed getting photographed.
Carol has an eye for what's special and captured all of our precious moments. She went the extra mile to get the perfect shots. She was in the snow while it was 10 degrees out capturing our beautiful winter wonderland wedding. She would literally stomp paths in the snow for my husband and I to walk through so we wouldn't ruin our clothes. Our pictures are truly stunning. I've had so many people tell me they look like they are from a magazine or say they are the best wedding photos they've ever seen.
I don’t think Carol stopped moving the whole day- her work ethic, dedication, and passion is clear. She is an absolute pleasure to work with, I can't say enough good things about her. Booking her was the best decision we made.

Exceeded My Highest Expectations
Carol was amazing. We had booked her to shoot our engagement and wedding photos. The pictures turned out fantastic, she was extremely professional and managed to make my husband and I look photogenic :)! Both the engagement shoot and wedding were a blast. Carol has an amazingly optimistic attitude and free spirit. We gave her a few ideas of what we wanted in our shoots and she took it and ran with it. Everything turned out perfect. Within a week of the wedding we had all of our images and within two weeks we had our photo album. Carol was perfect for the two of us, and I would highly recommend her to anyone.Sent on 12/31/2018
