“The second we accidentally found Carrie on Instagram we knew we wanted her to be our photographer for our small intimate wedding in Joshua tree. She has warm moody tones in her work which I am drawn to, especially during the golden hour in Joshua tree. She did not disappoint! She came for getting ready pics and she caught some great shots that I wouldn’t have even thought of! She was so patient when the house was full of chaos. My mom missed the helping of the bride get ready so Carrie did another shoot to help alleviate the disappointment. The portraits in Joshua tree were my favorite though. She knew just what to do, she listened to what we wanted and went with it! I’ve had so many compliments on our photos, I don’t think anyone could have done a better job. The ceremony was a little touch n go when we couldn’t find our officiants and we were about to lose light, she said we patient and we decided to get shots of a ceremony even without officiants in case we lost sunlight before they got there. Luckily they showed up in the nick of time and we got great shots of the actual ceremony as well! The beauty of it all is, I didn’t even notice her taking photos, it wasn’t distracting at all and she captured beautiful moments. My favorite group shot was the popping champagne with our guests. It was her idea and I’m so glad cause it’s a fan favorite! I loved her so much that we want to do another shoot with her because we never did engagement photos because we didn’t think they were worth it but she is worth it!

“We decided to do a bridal session for a couple reasons. First of all, we wanted beautiful pictures in a beautiful place to keep forever and we also wanted our wedding day to be less stressful trying to get the perfect shots. And a bonus is, we can display our photos at our reception! We LOVED Carrie! We live in Utah but had the dream to take pictures in San Diego area so we booked a photographer we heard of and planned our trip. Just two days before the shoot date, the photographer backed out. I was PANICKED! I sent a plea for help to a couple photographers on instagram, Carrie included. I loved her style and was sure there was no way she'd be down to shoot the very next day! She was so kind and told us that she was available and would love to take our pictures. I honestly think that was a miracle because the pictures ended up incredible, exactly what we wanted! She was great at letting us do our thing, but also giving us poses. She has an incredible talent for using light in a beautiful way in pictures! PLUS she spent time photoshopping the railings out of our photos to give us a magical look. She was amazing and I would recommend her highly!”

“We were beyond lucky to have Carrie photograph our tiny Palm Springs wedding. From the very first email, she was incredibly professional and clear while also being so personable and warm in all of her communication with us (we live abroad so this was very appreciated!). One scroll through her gorgeous Instagram and we knew we had struck gold! When the big day finally came, we were so preoccupied with random details (it was a tiny 8-guest family only wedding, but still...) that I felt like I hadn't really been in touch with her to let her know how everything was all going to play out... but she arrived early and sprung into action, immediately putting us at ease with her calm, sweet presence. It is an understatement to say that I am not photogenic. Luckily Carrie knew exactly how to gently direct my husband and me with prompts and encouragement. I could not be more grateful to her for the photos and memories she created for us on one of the biggest days of our lives. If I could hire her again I would, in a heartbeat! Carrie, thank you again and I am so happy to continue to follow your much deserved success!”

“Carrie was so amazing and she captures some of our most favorite memories. We booked our engagements and wedding with Carrie. We loved our engagement photos so much we used them for our wedding invite and placed them as a sprinkle on our cupcakes at our wedding. Throughout the day Carrie was so sweet and supportive of our vision. We had a last minute venue change a few months before the wedding and Carrie was not phased. To further share how adaptable Carrie is, our outdoor wedding quickly became an indoor wedding due to a brief rain shower that resulted in moving our seating and alter indoors. From what I know Carrie worked well with my friend who was the day of coordinator. My favorite shots from our wedding day are the ones of us getting ready. She managed to capture the true essence of the day. And at the end of all of it... Carrie gifted my husband and I with the sweetest most thoughtful gift. Having Carrie as our photographer was perfect for our laidback California themed wedding. I would surely book her again!”

“Carrie is an absolute dream to work with! My husband and I recently booked her to shoot our small wedding ceremony with close family and friends and we could not have made a better choice. She captured more than just the moment in time by really capturing the emotion behind it. Not only is she amazingly talented in her craft, but her kindness, professionalism, and patience make her stand out from the rest. She always responded to various forms of communication promptly and delivered the most beautiful images I have ever seen. I highly recommend working with her and have already recommended her to many family and friends. Carrie, thank you so much for making our day truly magical. We hope to work with you again in the future to capture the beautiful moments life will bring.”

“It was such an honor having Carrie as our wedding photographer. While searching for photographers, her style instantly grabbed our attention. She is extremely talented, and not to mention pays huge attention to detail. Working with her was so much fun. Honestly, my now husband and I are so not photogenic, but with Carrie’s guidance, and overall fun energy, she was able to capture amazing photos of us that we are forever grateful for! She is also the sweetest person, and makes you feel super comfortable from the beginning. Like we’ve known each other for years. l absolutely recommend 100%. She’s amazing and passionate about showing your love through her work. Even way before our big day, she was always so communicative and patient with our busy schedules at the time, and so responsive. She’s very organized and thoughtful. She offered us to sneak away and took the most beautiful sunset photos, which turned out to be our absolute FAVORITE photos, even though all of them are incredible. I am so glad and feel very fortunate to have found her and hired her as our wedding photographer.”
