    Carolyn and her husband Patrick were the wedding photographers at my daughters New Years Eve wedding.
    The photographs that were taken were beautiful. You could not ask for more from them. They were
    accessible to us with any questions we had both before and after the wedding. Everything we asked of
    them was accomplished. I would not hesitate to refer them to anyone.

    Carolyn and Patrick made us feel like part of their family from the start, and their energy and enthusiasm for capturing our wedding made it all that much more fun to celebrate! They put so much focus and creativity into the importance of this time in our lives, and we could not be more thrilled with our choice. Affordability, quality, passion, and care--that's what they bring every time.

    I hired a photographer and had engagement pictures done, and 5 months later still hadn't received them nor seen any of them. So I decided to look for a new photographer a month before my wedding. I called Carolyn and she set up an appointment with me the next day. She was extremely professional and excited about my wedding. We scheduled engagement pictures for a few days later. The day of the engagement shoot we had so much fun that we ended up spending over 4 hours doing pictures! And she had my pictures to me less than a week later! I absolutely love ALL of the engagement pictures, Carolyn has such an artistic eye and gave us some amazing portraits.
    Then came time for our wedding. Again Carolyn did an incredible job! She came on time, had all of her equipment ready to go and was so much fun to work with. We had a blast doing all of our pictures, Carolyn even made it a point to stay later than contracted at no charge because she wanted a specific sunset shot. The day of my wedding was extremely hot and I was so worried about looking sweaty and frazzled in my pictures, but when I got them I was amazed! Carolyn is a magic worker because I looked flawless in our photos! I absolutely love my wedding pictures. She did a great job of capturing the whole day, all the small details and emotional candid shots. A male coworker of mine saw some of the pictures on Facebook and said to me "wow, your photographer did a great job! When I saw your pictures I felt like I was instantly transported right back to that day!" I had people that I haven't talked to in a decade writing me on Facebook telling me how amazing my pictures were,and when I showed them to my mom she cried. There is no doubt that Carolyn is a master at what she does, but even more than that she is an amazing person. She is the most caring wedding vendor I worked with and I am so glad that I was lucky enough to have her for my big day! Thank you Carolyn!

    While I haven't gotten my wedding photos back, I obviously have our engagement photos and I did see some from the back of the camera. I am so happy with her and her work. First, Carolyn was fabulous to work with and one of, if not the most, helpful vendor I worked with. Not only did she have her stuff together, but was also able to make suggestions for other vendors. During our engagement photos, she was incredibly sick, I mean barf bag in her camera bag sick. However, due to an extremely tight schedule and the fact that I lived out of state, the photo session had to go on. She handed her self amazingly and the photos were still beautiful. Throughout the planning process, she answered questions promptly and thoroughly. On the wedding day she showed up on time, was very flexible, and pleasant to interact with. It was easily the best money I spent at the wedding.

    Carolyn is amazing! She was the first and only photographer we met with. She is so flexible and will do whatever possible to make the client happy. We met her in the the middle of the week at a Starbucks and hit it off right away! My fiancé and I had such a wonderful time during our November engagement session we didn't even notice how long we were out there. Carolyn really understood us and our style and captured it perfectly. We definitely can't wait until our wedding day, in April, to see what she captures!

    Carolyn is such a great person to work with. She is very Professional with her work, and praises other photographers anywhere in the area. Carolyn is also very Felxible with her time, my Fiancee and I had to RS twice and she was able to accommodate our needs. She is fun, easy to get along with, and does a great job. She was our third Photographer that we interviewed and stopped with her. We felt comfortable with her and knew that she would be the right person to share our special moment with.
    We are looking forward to celebrating our day and capturing our moment with Carolyn!

    Carolyn Welch was easygoing and extremely fun to work with. She made the whole process completely stress-free, which is huge when you're planning a wedding! She felt like a friend throughout our engagement session and wedding day, while still maintaining a high level of professionalism. Overall, Carolyn was a great choice for our wedding and I would definitely use her services again for all my future photography needs.

    My husband and I only have great things to say about Carolyn and using her for our photographer. She worked with out budget, which was important for us. But it wasn't her prices that first attracted us to her, it was her beautiful portfolio. Her photographs captured those precious moments that my husband and I knew we wanted for our wedding pictures. She captured beautiful pictures from getting dressed to our sparkler send off. She was responsive to all of our requests and had a fast turn around with our photos from our wedding. We have photos now that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. I would recommend using Carolyn for anyone that is looking for a thoughtful photographer that will listen to you and capture the best photographs you have ever seen.

    Where do I begin??

    One of the most important things when looking for our photographer was that we hit it off with them naturally, and that they would work around our schedule. We wanted to be comfortable with them as we would be trying to get intimate shots with them. We sat down with Carolyn, who met us at 7 PM on a Wednesday and my now husband and I knew immediately that we HAD to have Carolyn as our photographer.

    We threw a challenge at her (we wanted our engagement pictures taken at the mall where we first met, AND outdoor shots reminiscent of Twilight), and she was excited by the ideas we had rather than look stumped like other photographers we had met with. She was a champion, and made both ideas come to life.

    At our wedding, we threw another challenge at her (1 hour to take shots of bridal party while not allowing the couple to see each other). Carolyn made excellent use of the time, and got AMAZING shots. Even when our officiant tried to step in and tell Carolyn there would be no shots taken during the ceremony, Carolyn handled it with grace and worked out a compromise with her and got the shots.

    Carolyn is a cheerleader for love, and photography is obviously her passion. If you're looking for someone who gives you quality photography with a personal touch, I highly suggest you consider her for your wedding. She is now our family photographer, and will be go-to photographer to document the rest of our lives.

    Carolyn is absolutely the best!!!! She is the most flexible and so much fun while out doing the pictures. Carolyn not only did our engagements in the unexpected rain and snow, but she traveled to Tahoe for our wedding and day after shots. And just recently she came and took our family portraits with our newborn son. Everything that could have gone wrong with our wedding and Carolyn was not only able to go with the flow and get wonderful pictures but she wa also a great friend through it all. My husband and I COULD NOT be happier that we met Carolyn and are so happy to have the wonderful pictures that she captured. She is like family :)
