Personalized service and attention to detail every step of the way!
Carol Harrold was, by far, the most important vendor of our daughter's beautiful January wedding “Dream Team!” Our daughter and her fiancee were so impressed with Carol from the first meeting at her studio until the final photo of the wedding reception! She did an engagement photo shoot with them just after their engagement, which they loved. The pictures from that shoot were amazing and were used for bridal showers, the wedding website and their wedding guestbook. Carol was so focused on making sure the details that were important to Ashley & Marco were covered and that they were worked into the wedding day timeline. Carol worked closely with the wedding planner to be sure that every photo detail was accounted for and that there was a realistic timeframe to accomplish everything without exhausting the wedding party before the ceremony! She also did an in depth preview of the locations that Ashley & Marco wanted to have First Look and post ceremony photos taken and worked closely with our transportation company to direct the wedding party shuttle. She even created an "inclement weather photo plan" since it was a January wedding. I can't speak highly enough about the experience we had with Carol and her team throughout the wedding planning and the actual wedding. And of course it goes without saying that she captured the beauty and love of the entire day with her expertise and attention to detail. Ashley & Marco received a sneak peek of their photos quickly and had their full gallery of photos by their one month anniversary - a truly special gift! We are thrilled to have an absolutely beautiful documentation of our daughter and new son in law’s magical wedding day to enjoy.

Amazing Photographer with lots of Experience
We are so happy we hired Carol to be our wedding photographer. Her happiness and just overall attitude of adventure and fun were one of the things that stood out. My husband and I aren't huge photo people, but she made the experience of wedding photos and engagement photos super fun, and they turned out amazing and not staged at all as I feared they would. She took our requests into account as well as coming up with fun things of her own. I felt like I was in great hands and had total trust in her. Would highly recommend!Sent on 08/23/2019

Extremely impressive and incredibly responsive
Carol is amazing. We could not have been happier with our experience with her. We won our wedding package and she still treated us like a client with respect and nothing but the most empathy and professionalism. She is kind hearted and hard working. She busted her butt to make sure we got incredible photos that matched the look and theme we were going for. She went above and beyond what we could have hoped for. She is so easy to be around that it makes posing for photos easy and fun. She is great at guiding you and making you feel comfortable while also never being in the way. She also took the time to view our photos with us and answer questions. I wouldn't recommend anyone else. She was just phenomenal.Sent on 03/13/2019

Carol was a joy to work with for our dream wedding at the Alderbrook this August. The Alderbrook has always held a special place for both of us and we wanted to share it with our family and friends. Carol was able to capture what we love about the place in the photos. We are so happy with the photos of ourselves and our blended family--we will treasure them always. Bonus--was the photo booth for the reception. It captured the fun of the evening and the personalities of our guests and family.Sent on 08/15/2018
Carol Harrold Photography's reply:Juliana and John - what a pleasure to work with you, and to meet all of your family! It was a truly special weekend and we were so happy to be a part of it!

Carol is one of the best vendor we work with, she is very detailed oriented, professional and responsible. She participated in most of our preparation steps and she also went to our wedding venue prior to the day voluntarily only to familiarize the location and check all shooting spots. She listened and accommodated all special requirement that we asked . Of course she did a fantastic job on shooting photos during the wedding day, she made our whole process going through very smoothly. She also make the post editing process lean and come out beautiful pictures in time and in very high quality. Thank you Carol for everything you did for us!Sent on 03/06/2018

It was such a pleasure to have Carol as our wedding photographer! She's super friendly, accommodating and was full of awesome ideas on photoshoot locations. We love the photos and had an incredible time during the photoshoot. She made us feel very special, was very diligent with our needs and visions on what we want, etc. We've met in person before the wedding day to discuss ideas and she went afterwards to see the locations, I was very impressed with how attentive she was! Highly highly recommend Carol and will definitely use her services again!Sent on 07/13/2017

Carol is the best! She's personable, funny and we had a great time with her. She did our engagement photos and wedding photos. During the wedding, you could barely tell she was there and she made sure we got all the shots we wanted. The engagement photos were the best because she made us feel very comfortable. 10/10!Sent on 07/12/2017

Amy · Married on 10/22/2016
We seriously cannot say enough wonderful things about Carol. She did our engagement photos as well as the wedding day. She is so easy going and positive she made the whole thing stress free. Her work is incredible and the photos from our wedding so elegantly capture every wonderful aspect of that day. She is compassionate and truly a joy to work with. She is so creative and really works with the environment to make the most of the setting. We highly recommend Carol. She helped make our wedding so special and gave us photos of our most cherished moments.Sent on 11/03/2016
Carol Harrold Photography's reply:Amy - thank you so much! I loved your wedding and all your special details. Can we do it all over again? I can't wait to share the photos with you and Adam!
Ann · Married on 08/22/2015
Words cannot describe how fortunate we were to have had Carol as our photographer! Long before the actual wedding day, Carol spent an extensive amount of time communicating with us to make sure she had an excellent understanding of what we wanted and that no important shots or moments were missed. She was open to ideas we had, and offered many excellent ideas of her own. (Some of our favorite photos even came from the informal scout session at our wedding site a couple months before the wedding, as well as from our own backyard which we had no idea looked as stunning as it does in our pictures!). It doesn't hurt that Carol is such a joy to communicate with - she is warm, friendly, open, easy-going yet extremely organized and thorough. On the day of the wedding, Carol did an excellent job of staying on task and capturing the best in everyone she photographed. You obviously spend a huge amount of time with your wedding photographer close by on the day of your wedding, and her presence actually added to the happiness of the day. I never once felt self-conscious or posed, which I can have a tendency to do if I know I'm being photographed. She has a way of capturing EVERYTHING without you even realizing she's there, and putting everyone at ease in a pleasant way, and it showed in her photographs. She captured the beauty AND the fun of our wedding equally well. Her eye for color, composition, mood and beauty is evident in every picture she took. I wonder if I'll EVER be able to stop looking at our wedding photos (I have to admit I have browsed through at least SOME of them every day since our August wedding!). EVERY part of our experience working with Carol was positive. We will absolutely hire her for any future family photography needs and recommend her to others. You simply cannot find a wedding photographer better than Carol!Sent on 03/25/2016
Carol Harrold Photography's reply:Thank you so much!!! And how did I get so fortunate to have you as clients! I will never forget your wedding - it was one of a kind!!

We were very pleased to have Carol Harrold Photography for our son’s wedding. Carol went out of her way to accommodate our busy schedule so that we could meet prior to the wedding, made excellent suggestions in guiding our photo selection, and was always prompt in responding to any questions. Carol showed herself to be a consummate professional on the wedding day, especially during the high-pressure “before” photos, as she selected backdrop and lighting with efficiency, anticipated candid moments, and took care of the smallest details in arranging every set photo, all with a smile on her face. Her people skills were also evident as she gathered family members for group pictures, and took advantage of the interplay of both attendants and guests to get truly excellent set and candid shots. Carol and her assistant seemed to be everywhere, constantly at work capturing the moment, but in an effortless manner that allowed the wedding to flow around them. We couldn’t be happier with the results!Sent on 05/30/2015
Carol Harrold Photography's reply:Thank you so much! What kind words! It was such a joy to be there - thank you for having me!

Carol was absolutely amazing! First of all, she is super sweet and bubbly. She makes you feel comfortable upon first meeting her. She likes a plan and wants your input. She loves when you suggest ideas because she knows you will be happy. She has her own great ideas, too.Sent on 05/29/2015
The day of, she was outstanding. She came early and was very prepared. She knew our weather was iffy and planned to get going as soon as we were ready so that we could maximize on our time. We had a large wedding party (14 plus us) and a larger wedding (200). She shot with excitement all day long. She wanted to nail our suggested shots and had some great ones of her own. All the time, she wore a smile and talked so positively about the day. I'm sure she never sat down for a minute! She really was incredible. We loved how the photos turned out; however, just as importantly, we loved how comfortable she made us feel. Everyone at our wedding commented about how positive, patient and hard-working she was. Thanks a million, Carol!
Carol Harrold Photography's reply:Thank YOU so much! It was so fun to be there, and all your friends were just so great. My best wishes to you both!

Carol was WONDERFUL! She is such a sweet person and so fun to be with. We had a lot of fun during our wedding. I want to have her to all my parties as my friend. On top of that, her photography is beautiful! I wanted a photo journalist style of photography and she provided. We'll be working with her soon to make large prints for our home and design our wedding book. Thank you soooo much Carol!!!Sent on 12/21/2015

We hired Carol to be our photographer as a recommendation by the Sorrento Hotel where we were married. She was fantastic. We have amazing memories and beautiful pictures. We affectionately refer to her as the "Ninja Camera Lady". When we saw the pics for the first time there were tons that we had no clue she had taken. We loved that she wasn't obtrusive and we didn't even know she was there. We loved that we get to keep all of the negatives. And we loved loved her eye for a great picture. We would highly recommend her for anyone looking to have better pictures than anyone else. :)Sent on 03/04/2015
Carol Harrold Photography's reply:I can't tell you how thrilled I am that you love them. I was very fortunate to be there and witness such a heartfelt and gorgeous event!
Kaitlyn · Married on 01/04/2015
Carol did an amazing job capturing our wedding day and our personalities! She made the whole process fun, easy and laid-back. It was also nice that she got the photos back to us so quickly. We can't stop looking at our photos and it is impossible to pick our favorite because there are too many awesome shots to choose just one. The quality and look of the photos belong in a magazine! She did a great job coming up with unique and timeless poses while also incorporating our own ideas. We also loved that she came up with backup plans ahead of time, so we felt well prepared and organized. Even when the rain caused us to fall back on plan B, Carol was able to think on her toes and come up with another alternative that incorporated plan A, so we still got the shots we wanted. Carol's personality made it easy to be ourselves around her, which is depicted in the beautiful photos from our special day. Thank you Carol; you exceed our every expectation!Sent on 02/15/2015

Carol and her assistant worked tirelessly to capture our daughter's wedding at Immaculate Conception church and the WAC. The started the day at two different locations to get the groomsmen and the bride and the bridesmaids prior to the event.Sent on 11/10/2014
Carol was calm and professional and worked with the wedding party to get all the shots we requested. She worked within our budget and even went beyond what she had promised.
The photo booth was one of the best, most unexpected, hits of the evening. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Carol - she is a wonderful person to work with and from the sneak peak, I can't wait to see what amazing shots she captured

Seems like I'm lying to give someone 5 stars, but I cannot think of a reason to deduct any stars (even partial) from Carol's rating.Sent on 02/14/2014
She was immediately welcoming at our first meeting where we set up clear expectations for each other. She was prompt with her followup (even when I was not). Her organization along the way helped me and my husband remain calm and confident that our photography would turn out great. And day of Carol was a joy to be around. Seeing that you spend most of the day with your photographer, it was great to have someone like Carol who was easy going, had her ideas ready to go and even brought props for the photo booth. Our friends have said these are the best wedding photos they've seen (and I agree). And we even got our proofs within a month of the wedding. Amazing all around service. Her assistant shooter Karen was great too!
Carol Harrold Photography's reply:Thank you so much! Spending your day with you was such a pleasure - the most fun New Years Eve!
Tricia · Married on 11/02/2013
Carol is the best! She is professional yet fun. She spends time learning what you want on your day/event. Both my sister and I (and many friends) have used her services for our weddings and the end results have always been perfect. If you are looking for someone who will work with you to understand your wants/needs and has a wonderful personality - Carol is for you! She made us all feel very relaxed and will bring your stress level down. She also did a wonderful job of capturing our favorite memories of our wedding. We wanted to go outside for some photos, and the weather was terrible, but Carol was willing to do whatever we wanted, and the outside photos were all of our favorites!Sent on 01/12/2014
Carol Harrold Photography's reply:I can not even tell you how amazing it feels to be a part of your friends (and family!) I am so lucky to have known all of you. What a truly special group of women you are. Big congrats to all your fabulous weddings!

Carol is the best! My husband and I are both shy and being photographed is not our favorite thing. After meeting with Carol for the first time, we were both very comfortable with her. She is really fun to work with and makes everything easy and stress-free. Having her do our engagement shoot and wedding was the best decision we made. The photos turned out beautiful. She captures not only the emotional moments, but the goofy, silly ones too.Sent on 11/15/2013

Kirstin · Married on 08/17/2013
Carol Harrold did a wonderful job photographing our wedding last month! She traveled to our wedding venue at my family's home on the Kitsap Peninsula. She made sure she understood all the dynamics of both sides our family, and she was also sensitive to all our family's needs, This was my second marriage and I have 2 children. We wanted to be sensitive to their feelings on this special day. Carol did a great job with all the children at the wedding including getting some beautiful pictures with my daughter and son that I will cherish forever. Carol was very creative in all the photos and captured the whole wedding day perfectly, from start to finish. She captured many candid pictures that were just spectacular! Some of my favorite pictures were taken by the lakefront on the dock with lilly pads and water as our backdrop. Our posed pictures were all well thought out ahead of time, and went quickly and smoothly. My pictures were edited and delivered very quickly. I also liked that Carol posted some sneak-peek pictures with my permission shortly after the wedding day! I was so happy to have Carol Harrold as my wedding photographer and I feel honored to have had her be part of my special day!Sent on 09/29/2013

Megan · Married on 08/10/2013
Carol was wonderful to work with for our wedding. She was very professional and put us at ease having our pictures taken. She did both our engagement shoot and our wedding. She was very much in the background during our ceremony and party, but was still able to get excellent photographs. All of guests were very impressed with how well she was able to direct the portraits and efficiently get all of the shots that we desired. I very much like her journalistic style as well as the more stylized high contrast black and white images she use for our event. I highly recommend working with Carol.Sent on 09/29/2013

Top-notch photographer…Sent on 11/18/2013
We highly recommend Carol to anyone to everyone.
We had the great fortune of working with Carol for our wedding. She is such an awesome person: very adorable, warm-hearted, incredibly talented, so much fun to work with, and highly professional. You can easily see that she loves what she does.
When selecting a photographer we were extremely particular about what we were looking for. We knew that our wedding pictures would take us back and tell the story of our special day. That’s why it is important to work with someone who would make you feel at ease. You should click with that person. After meeting with Carol, we knew that she was the one. There is not much to say. Not only her work speaks for itself, but also she has a sweet personality. She is a keeper.
Carol values her work. We had our ideas for where we should have our pre-ceremony shoot and she added her own recommendations. She met with us a couple of weeks before the wedding at the shooting site and we made a timeline of the day together. Both the timeline and the scouting of the site made our weeding day flow better and less stressful.
We couldn’t be happier that we had Carol as our photographer. We had such a great time during the photo shoot and we are so thankful what she captured. The pictures came out to be very beautiful. They will be memories that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.
We hope to work with Carol again in the future. What can we say? She is our favorite.
Thank you Carol!
Carol Harrold Photography's reply:Thank you so much!I felt so honored to be your choice! I look forward to our ongoing friendship!

Carol came highly recommended to us by our wedding planner and I couldn't speak more highly of her. My husband and I used her services for both our engagement shoot and our wedding and LOVED her. We had such a fund time with her during our engagement shoot. She made us feel completely at ease and was extremely receptive to our ideas an overall vision. Not only that, but our wedding photos turned out better than I could have imagined. Our wedding party had a blast working with her, as did we. She captured all of our most treasured moments, as well as many others. We received our photos promptly and she was great to work with for a few photos we needed touched up. She's extremely responsive, organized, professional, and FUN! I can't say enough about our experience. We will certainly be using Carol for all of our memorable events in the future!Sent on 09/27/2013

We could not have selected a better photographer than Carol, period.Sent on 09/27/2013
At our initial meeting with her after our engagement, there was an instant connection and mutual respect. She is very warm and an excellent listener. She truly understood our style and instantly figured out our "likes and dislikes" without us saying much.
As the months of planning went on, Carol worked closely with our wedding planner and scouted our venue with her as well, which was extremely helpful and gave us even more confidence that she was not only going to do a fantastic job, but she was *interested* in doing the work! She's a true pleasure and has a very talented eye, to say the least. We give her our highest recommendation without any reservations whatsoever.
Carol Harrold Photography's reply:Thank you Heather and Papp - so nice of you!
Shannon · Married on 05/19/2013
Carol was an absolute joy to work with and we were so lucky to have her as our photographer. We were really nervous about finding someone last-minute after an issue with our original photographer and at the recommendation of the catering director at our venue we contacted Carol. I think it was just meant to be. She had a rare opening on our wedding date and jumped right in helping us and made us feel so at ease.Sent on 10/10/2013
She had fun ideas, but also aimed to take classic, beautiful photos that will never look dated. Even with limited time for photos on our wedding day, she managed to get everything we wanted. She gave great direction for portraits (since we certainly aren't models), captured all the details we took so long to plan, and got great candid shots of us and our guests. We jokingly call her the photo ninja because she's so quick and so good at catching everything without ever being invasive. Plus, she's one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. I don't know if ninjas are generally nice, but apparently photo ninjas are!
Carol Harrold Photography's reply:Oh my Shannon - what a sweet review! Thank you so very much. It was meant to be, because I loved meeting you and Drew!
