    I don't even know where to start. Carolyn and Geoff are just THE BEST team I have ever worked with. They are creative, fun, flexible, energetic, and just overall amazing people. We got married on the Outer Banks but decided to go with Carolyn and Geoff (based in Raleigh) for a number of reasons. Besides getting an awesome vibe from them upon our first meeting, and realizing we shared similar musical interests, these two have an uncanny ability to capture the most perfect moment on film (digital of course). Their style is simple and real...they don't need to do all of this post-production editing because they actual get it right the first time. And, they stay true to who they are as photographers. I really appreciated that about them! We also booked them because they were affordable--always an important factor in any wedding! Their package included a number of things from engagement shots to hours upon hours of wedding day coverage (in addition to rehearsal dinner coverage as well...they just went above and beyond!). During our "shoots" they never made it uncomfortable, but rather made us feel at ease and that was reflected in the photos. We actually look like US--very candid and fun. Carolyn and Geoff were so flexible that they woke up for a sunrise photo shoot (6am...it was our idea) on the beach, which was just so beautiful and we even stumbled upon some of Corolla's wild horses, who made beautiful additions to our pictures! The whole process was seriously out of a fairytale. I would without any reservation recommend Carolyn Scott Photography to any and all of our friends (and strangers!). I will definitely call on them again for future family portraits :) WE LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!

    Carolyn and her husband Geoff are an excellent team and took many beautiful pictures for our wedding! From the beginning, we knew we had hired the right photographers- even in emails, Carolyn was very professional, friendly, enthusiastic, and always ready to answer all of our questions with a quick and thorough response. She and Geoff were great on the actual wedding day- they did the portraits very efficiently, and for much of the ceremony and reception they mostly stayed in the background capturing the day. And while we were getting ready they were fun to hang out with! Carolyn got the pictures back to us VERY quickly- they were available for viewing less than a week after the wedding! The pictures are wonderful and really captured the feel of the day. I highly recommend Carolyn and Geoff to any couple getting married in Raleigh!

    Carolyn is awesome!!! She did our pictures for engagement, bridal portraits, and wedding. We LOVE all of our pictures and have gotten so many compliments from friends and family. Carolyn is very laid back, responsive, and flexible. It was a lot of fun working with her and her husband. We could not have asked for a better photographer!

    Carolyn and Geoff are amazing photographers and all around genuinely great people. On our wedding day, we felt like they had been our friends for years - they made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and somehow they even made taking picture after picture…fun! Friends and family have said that our wedding pictures are some of the most beautiful they have ever seen and I completely agree! We couldn't have loved working with Carolyn and Geoff more and honestly don't have words to describe how grateful we are that we chose them to capture our special day!

    Absolutely the best vendor we had. Carolyn and Geoff are professional and make you feel so comfortable on your wedding day. They say you get what you pay for and the photos were something we were just simply not going to skimp on. I actually planned my date around whatever their schedule was because as soon as I was engaged I knew I needed them. They're worth every penny! You won't disappointed, I swear. My pictures are the best out of alll of my friends who recently got married; everyone's jealous of them! They are shooting my sister-in-law's wedding next month because after she saw our engagement pics she couldn't let them get away lol I can't wait for the future various stages of life: pregnancy, babies, growing old, because I know I'll be getting Carolyn there to take pics the whole way through. If you can, book Carolyn and Geoff this second. Trust me.

    I really can't say enough good things about Carolyn Scott Photography. I don't even know where to start. Carolyn is the main photographer who is accompanied by her very talented husband, Geoff. They're amazing photographers and a pleasure to work with. The proof is in the pudding, here's links to our 2 photo sessions with them (the wedding/reception and the day-after session). http://www.carolynscottphotography.com/blog/2012/05/16/abbysteve s-caffe-luna-wedding-in-raleigh/ http://www.carolynscottphotography.com/blog/2012/05/17/abbysteve s-day-after-session/ Carolyn is great to work with, she was always quick to answer my emails, provide suggestions when I was stumped and really worked hard to include all the things I was looking for in our photos - from the overall feel to special shots. In fact, they captured shots that I had randomly talked about in our meetings, stuff that I had forgotten about but they remembered. And I'm glad they did! At the same time, Carolyn keeps things real. She'll let you know what may work and what won't. I appreciated that honesty, like the time of day we were getting married was the worst for taking outside pictures. So some shots were kind of unrealistic, but she came up with realistic solutions to turn out great pictures. She will establish things like that early on in the process so there are no surprises. On the day of I had complete trust in those 2. They made me feel so confident about things that I didn't worry at all. They were completely on it. My husband and I aren't people who typically enjoy being photographed, in fact we consider ourselves highly un-photogenic. Carolyn and Geoff would give great instructions that we could understand (things get overwhelming on your wedding day!) and most of all, it was fun. Our day-after session was especially fun. I would do it again in a heartbeat, and remember this is coming from someone who is nervous in front of the camera. I feel like the price was well worth it!!

    I LOVE CAROLYN!! She is the bomb dot com! She and her lovely husband Geoff did our Engagement pics, Bridal portraits and our Wedding!! She makes you feel so comfortable and her creative genius will get you some really awesome, happy, special photos. We're going to enjoy ours from years to come!! In addition to her awesome pictures she has some great advice for wedding planning and staging a day that 1) makes sense in terms of time flow and 2) helps you be comfortable and not stressed at all. You're going to spend A LOT of time with your photographers on your wedding day (and before if you take engagements photos/bridal portraits) and I can't think of anyone else I would've wanted to hang out with on our special day. Highly, highly recommend!!

    Carolyn Scott Photography went above an beyond my expectations. Carolyn and her husband Geoff are a dynamic duo who we call friends after the wedding is said and done. They both put so much thought and care into our photos that they took. They captured the BEST moments of our engagement shoot and our wedding day. I would absolutely recommend Carolyn to anyone I know that is getting married. LOVE CSP!!!! <3

    My wife and I hired Carolyn and Geoff to photograph our wedding. We met with Carolyn 4 times before the day of our wedding and she was always there when we arrived at our meeting place. She showed flexibility when our engagement session was rained out and when we asked to have day of photos on a farm miles from our wedding site. On the day of Carolyn and Geoff arrived early to photograph all our decorations, throughout the day they documented every aspect of our wedding.

    After the wedding my father-in-law and I both remarked that we felt like Carolyn and Geoff were not an obtrusive aspect of the wedding, unlike our experience with other wedding photographers. As a groom, I didn't feel pulled away from my guests or my bride. Without interrupting our fun Carolyn and Geoff were able to take excellent photos of our celebration.
    The turnaround on our photos was remarkably quick. One week from our wedding date my wife and I were able to view our photos online and the results are excellent. We have a ton of great photos that we will cherish throughout our lives together.

    We would highly recommend them to anyone and would be happy to work with them again.

    Carolyn Scott Photography is the best photography business around. I used her for engagement, wedding, and pet photography. We have her pictures all around our house. They are awesome. Carolyn is able to catch our personalities and her love for life all in one pic. Plus she doesn't make you awkwardly pose. I love working with Carolyn and on occasion her assistant/super cool husband Geoff. I will never have to go to Olan Mills or Sears again. Carolyn is going to do all my photos from here on out. Just simply because she is the best.

    I am a minister and have worked with Carolyn Scott photography at weddings and always love watching she and Geoff work. They can approach things from a traditional mindset or a modern and unexpected one, whatever you prefer. But I love watching them work. Their work is excellent, their vision unique and fun and their photos always have a lot of heart. You won’t go wrong choosing Carolyn Scott Photography for your wedding.

    Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. Carolyn is just a joy to work with! I can't tell you how many complements I've received about our wedding photos! She was able to combine what I had envisioned with her creative eye and the result was just gorgeous! In addition to this, she is extremely thorough, professional, and attentive.

    Carolyn Scott Photography was by far the best vendor I had for my wedding. When we had our first consultation, me and my husband knew she would be great for our engagement and wedding pictures and we were right!! I never had to chase her down, Carolyn was always very easy to get a hold of if we had any questions or concerns. Her quality of work exceeded my expectations!! I love everything about our engagement photos and wedding photos, all the way down to the dvd cases for our pictures!! She and Geoff make a great team! They are absolutely fantastic! Wedding Wire would be crazy to give this award to anyone else, Carolyn deserves it!

    Carolyn (and Geoff) were absolutely amazing to work with!! My fiance and I had decided to have our wedding in February only three months prior to that time, and were in a rush to get all of our details together. Carolyn was the first photographer we interviewed with, and knew right away we wanted her for our wedding! She is an amazing person to work with, has a wonderful personality, and a great eye for photographic opportunities! She had our pictures to us within a week after our wedding (which was quicker than I expected), and they all came out AMAZINGLY! We will no doubt use her for all of our photography needs in the future!

    I did not know Carolyn prior to her photographing my wedding. She was well beyond any expectations I had. She is very personable, attentive, and organized. It is evident that she loves what she does and it shows in how she interacts with you, your guests, and the final product she gives you.

    I would highly recommend Carolyn if you are looking for a photographer for your wedding. There were many different types of pictures and poses that she took giving me many different options to choose as my favorite. She is more concerned with making you happy then just getting the job done.

    When looking for a photographer for my weddin I had no idea what to look for. I was really worried that I would end up with some stuffy traditional photographer with boring pictures. Well as soon as I met her we hit it off and could carry on a good conversation.
    As soon as we took the bridal portraits and I saw how creative she was and how well our ideas worked together I knew I had chosen the right photographer. The bridal portraits turned out awesome and super fun. When it came to the wedding I knew I would have nothing to worry about, and of course they turned out fabulous. She had GREAT ideas for fun shoots with the bridal party and they turned out awesome!
    I will definitely use her in the future for any of my photography needs.

    When I first meet Carolyn I knew that she was the one. Carolyn helped me so much, I didn't get stressed out at all. She was on time (even when I wasn't), polite, and had tons of great ideas. when I received my pictures I was blown away by how beautiful they were, I even cried a little bit when I saw my son.

    I would recommend Carolyn Scott for anything and everything you would want pictures for!!

    Thank you so much you made my wedding complete,
