Bride & Thrive consists of a group of expert photographers, editors, and cullers based in Issaquah, WA. Bride & Thrive was founded by professional photographer Carol Anne Billings, who has been privileged to be featured by large IG accounts such as “Loverly”, "Hitched," and "SD Voyager," as well as on the “Inspired by This” blog for her beautiful wedding and engagement work. Carol Anne now acts as your "visionary master" for your wedding photography needs, and ensures that you get fantastic customer service by bringing all of the elements and details together to give you a great photography experience.
"By acting as the 'visionary master' on the team, I am able to offer my clients better service and an extra set of professional eyes to make sure their sessions run smoothly and seamlessly. I have always believed that vendors make or break a wedding, and good service can be hard to come by. Most photography businesses don't have someone that is solely devoted to customer service and ensuring that the vision comes together, so that's what makes Bride & Thrive so beautifully unique as a photography business!"

Booked Carol Anne for my engagement, 8 hr wedding, AND an additional post wedding photoshoot bc we loved working with her so much. She is so easy going, motivated, extremely adventurous & willing to try new ideas, professional & polite with her interactions, and is quick at turning around the photos. With Carol Anne, I felt like she was my friend, and she made me comfortable to be honest with her about how/what I wanted/expected without feeling hesitant, which a bride should never feel when you're hiring a photographer to capture your event. She was always quick and responsive to emails, and available to talk on the phone to go over ideas. She gives every photo careful consideration when she edits, ensuring you have the best and most beautiful images. What you can depend on is Carol Anne's consistency with the quality of her photos (3 sessions to prove it). Please visit her website and look through her portfolio to see her fresh, bright, natural, soft and timeless collection of photos. I look forward to working with her in the future.Sent on 08/20/2017

Carol Anne was amazing to work with for our engagement photos. She immediately made us feel very comfortable. She took time at the beginning of the shoot to ask us what we were looking for from the experience and what our style was. She made the whole experience pretty effortless for us, and we ended up with great photos. Carol Anne has an eye for detail, as well as the big picture (no pun intended) and how to compose a great shot. She captured some special moments. I loved that she let us come up with many of our own poses, but when we were out of ideas, she jumped right in with a variety of her own. She was reasonably priced, very easy to get ahold of, and she had our photos back to us very quickly! Overall, I highly recommend her. She’s very easy to work with (which makes for great photos), very flexible, and an excellent photographer. I know I will be using her again!Sent on 03/13/2017
