Best Experience Ever!
I have had the honor of watching Carrie photograph hundreds of weddings, and because of that I knew the second I got engaged, she would be the first vendor we would hire! That is exactly what happened. We had Carrie shoot our engagement photos and our wedding day and I cannot begin to say how incredible our experience was. We were able to meet with her throughout the planning process and ask any questions we had at any time. There was always an appreciated honest answer! We had a tough family situation that we were stressing about the entire time and she TRULY eased the entire thing and made us feel SO relaxed! On the day of our entire family and party loved her, as we knew they would. She was fun and connected with every single one of them. They all can't stop raving at how awesome she was. As promised, about 7 weeks after the wedding we received our photos and they are AMAZING. I truly cannot explain how incredible they came out. She captured our vision so perfectly and we could not be more thankful! We are so excited to have her print out some for us to hang in our home and we are super excited to start planning our album, we know it is going to be a true treasured item. If you are in need of a photographer, seriously look no further, there is not a single person I would recommend other than Carrie! Also, I cannot remember the name of her second shooter, but he was AMAZING too! So much fun, took INCREDIBLE photos and totally connected with the guys, getting their true expressions all throughout the day!Sent on 12/10/2019

When a wedding DJ hires a photographer.
Having worked for 30 years as a wedding DJ, I've seen thousands of photographers. My wife put me in charge of getting a photographer for our wedding. I have known and worked with Carrie Dragi and Dan Roggi for over 20 years. We have done hundreds of weddings together and have seen how they work with their clients. They were my choice when it came to our wedding. My wife Betty has never seen Carrie and Dan work before. Within an hour, they were best friends. The helped us navigate personal, family and group pictures flawlessly and also help keep on time and through all the special events. Their service went beyond the expectations that even I expected. They seemed to just be there every time we needed a picture and even when I didn't think of it. We absolutely love the picture we received from them so far and are looking forward to rest of them. Betty and I can't thank both of them enough for everything they did for us on our wedding day. I can't recommend them enough!!!Sent on 01/24/2020

Professionalism meets relaxation and fun with Carrie Draghi Photography !
Carrie was great from our first meeting after my fiancé and I got engaged. She was so warm and friendly. She went above and beyond helping us piece together the details of our dream autumn wedding at Saint Clements Castle. We honestly felt like we could go to her with any question along the way. That right there is amazing, since there are so many logistics to that day. Especially, if you have multiple locations besides the wedding venue to photograph at , like we did. We had a hotel, pre -ceremony location , church ceremony and venue to line up a timeline with for the big day since we weren’t doing a first look. It went flawless ! And we had 14 kids in our wedding party. Ages ranged from 13 months to 16 years old ( lots of nieces and nephews ) Carrie and Dan worked their magic with them and we were able to get them all photographed before the wedding ceremony even started. They made me feel at such ease the morning of, getting ready. We really had a lot of fun working with them the whole day. They worked perfectly with all of our personalities and it was a huge wedding party. I will be using Carrie for all my photograph needs in the future. Hopefully a maternity shoot soon :-)Sent on 01/22/2020

If you are looking for someone who is easy to work with, laid back yet detail oriented, fun, professional and an all around nice person, look no further and hire Carrie. My husband and I are not super comfortable in front of the camera and Carrie made the whole experience fun and easy. She took the lead and I can’t wait to get out pictures back! And I can’t say enough nice things about Dan as well! They make a fantastic team!!Sent on 10/03/2019

Carrie is, LITERALLY, THE BEST! She made me feel so at ease with everything! You can definitely tell that she has years of experience and know EXACTLY what she is doing! She never leaves you guessing about what you need to get done next. She is not just your photographer, too! She stepped in as such a great help on my wedding day when we found out that my dress had a missing clasp! She helped my Wedding Coordinator fix my dress several times and was such a pleasure to have!! LOOK NO FURTHER BECAUSE SHE IS AMAZING!!! THANK YOU CARRIE FOR EVERYTHING :)Sent on 10/09/2018

We had a wonderful experience with Carrie Draghi Photography. She went above and beyond our expectations - not only did she capture the essence of our wedding in photos, but she made every effort to help our wedding run smoothly. She paid attention to details like clearing rainwater off a patio herself to keep my dress dry, helped pin on boutonnières, and kept things running in countless other ways, all while capturing beautiful photos of our wedding. If I had to do the whole thing over again, I wouldn’t even consider hiring anyone else. Thank you!Sent on 12/16/2018

Excellent wedding photographer power couple! We got married at an all inclusive resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico. The reviews and experiences from the photographer on site there were not great to say the least. We found Carrie at the local CT Wedding Expo, and it was a match right from the start. Her and her husband traveled to Mexico with us, and caught literally every moment of our wedding. From the wedding rehearsal, to getting ready in the bridal suite, to the guys getting ready in the room, my dad and I having our moment, the ceremony, and the reception on the beach after. All of it was perfect. I will definitely hire her again whenever we have another life event to capture.
P.S> The price we paid included round trip airfare plus hotel for the photographer.
P.S.S> The pictures I up-loaded are only what I had on my phone at the time of writing this review. So many awesome photos, I don’t have enough room to load them all or store on my phone!Sent on 12/17/2018

Picture perfect day
From the very beginning, Carrie and her staff were absolutely amazing. At the initial meeting I knew Carrie Draghi Photography was the right choice for us. Carrie took the time to walk through our entire wedding day, including a walkthrough of the venue, in advance of the wedding to ensure we were getting all of the right pictures at all the right locations. The end result was nothing short of breathtaking. Most importantly, she made the entire experience fun. Her and her team’s professionalism, preparation and know how made for a smooth and enjoyable experience.Sent on 12/16/2018
Our wedding was at a picturesque venue with a lot of acreage, but that didn’t stop Carrie and her crew from carrying all of their gear tirelessly through the scenic grounds while we were enjoying our romantic ride in a horse drawn carriage in 90 degree heat. Yet at every stop for a picture opportunity, we were greeted with a smile and a witty comment to make us laugh.
Our entire experience with Carrie was nothing short of amazing. When we received the proofs from the wedding, The quality of the images were beyond our expectations. We would highly recommend Carrie and her staff and will definitely use her again in the future.

Carrie and Dan braved 95 degree heat and humidity to capture my outdoor June 2nd wedding without a single complaint. Our photos are stunning, natural, and exactly how I remember that wonderful day. We loved working with Carrie, she is a true professional!Sent on 12/18/2018

Finding a wedding photographer was one of the most stressful parts of planning our wedding. After meeting Carrie Draghi we immediately felt relieved. Carrie is extremely professional yet easy going. She had a way of making sure we were comfortable with every decision we were making (and there is a lot of them to make). Carrie made sure we stuck to our venues timeline and worked with the other vendors on our wedding day. She was even flexible when I decided to add an additional first look the day of our wedding. When we received our wedding photos we were blown away! Carrie was 10 steps ahead of us and made sure she captured every sentimental moment and detail of our wedding. She made the entire process simple and stress free.Sent on 12/06/2017
Photography is Carrie's passion but my husband and I believe Carrie truly cares about going above and beyond to deliver for her clients.

Look no further for you photographer! Carrie and her partner in crime Dan are an awesome duo when it comes to making your day the most special day you'll ever experience!Sent on 11/06/2017
Both of them were able to remain professional and on schedule (even when I, the bride, was late!), yet they couldn't stop putting smiles on all of our faces with their goofiness! They were so accommodating and patient with my family, whom most couldn't speak English; it was so refreshing to see. It helped my nerves tremendously!
I couldn't have asked for anybody else to take pictures of a day that we will never forget - thanks so much for making it unforgettable!

Carrie and Dan were fabulous! They were fun to work with! They had us laughing - took the stress out of trying to get all the family photos in and got us to smile naturally! We did night time shots that were so much fun! Love the previews we saw on the day of and can't wait to see the final pictures!Sent on 10/01/2017

Choosing Carrie to be our photographer was one of the best decisions we made. From our first meeting we felt comfortable, confident and knew we were in good hands.Sent on 09/21/2017
Carrie helped us make a timeline for the day of the wedding at our final meeting and this really put us at ease. Not having a wedding planner I wasn’t one hundred percent sure on the timing of certain things like hair and makeup and deliveries for flowers. Carrie advised me on each of these and everything flowed perfectly the day of. She and her partner Dan were very flexible and made sure we were getting all of the pictures we had said we would like and then some!
We had a photo booth for our reception and Carrie surprised us the day of and told us how she matched the theme of our wedding invitations to the border around the photo booth print outs. Every detail was beyond perfect.
Carrie and Dan are the perfect team, they are professional and fun and had us laughing and enjoying every moment. We loved every moment and would definitely work with Carrie and Dan again!

This woman is literally MAGIC! When my husband and I left that first meeting with her, we were sold! Carrie is not only a great photographer but genuine person who cares and appreciates the time of her clients – who are made to feel more like old friends. The whole experience is really comforting in the stress of wedding planning. She keeps everything focused, but never forgets that half the battle is remembering to have fun during the whole crazy process, offering numerous suggestions for the day-of that would help the day run smoother. We couldn’t begin to even recommend using someone else because she was everything we were hoping for in a photographer. This was the easiest decision made in planning our wedding and we couldn’t be more thankful to her for all she did – including referring us to all of our other vendors who were all excellent. Choosing Carrie is choosing someone who knows how to capture life’s most important moments – and she makes you look great while she does it!Sent on 12/28/2017

Of all the decisions you need to make while planning your wedding, this will be the easiest. Pick Carrie Draghi - she is worth every penny.Sent on 07/24/2017
Good pictures start from being at ease and Carrie will definitely put you at ease. Even from the first consultation, she makes you feel like you are the only client and the only one that matters. Her pictures are amazing and every now and then she'll say "Let me try something" - those will be the best pictures.
One thing I was not expecting was for her to help me draw up a timeline for the day. I didn't have a wedding planner and kind of cobbled it all together myself. Carrie, based on all her experience, advised me on getting hair and makeup done earlier (she was right), having the flowers delivered earlier (she was right again - especially since the delivery was running late), and leaving earlier to get to the church. As she said, no bride has ever complained about being too early. I wasn't too early at any stage and her timeline actually prevented me from being late and stressed out.
The second photographer she came with (Dan) was just as great. After meeting him for the first time on the day of the wedding, I was instantly at ease with him in under 5 mins.
I could go on and on but no one will read a super long review.
Bottom line - book Carrie. You won't regret it!
Carrie Draghi Photography's reply:Awwww Mudi. THANK YOU! You + Brian + Your Family + Your Friends and Bridal Party = an easy day of shooting for Dan and I. We had a great time celebrating your wedding with you. And, glad that when you reflect back, you have such wonderful things to say. Cheers!!!!!
