I had always enjoyed photography but only thought of it as a hobby. After a year of pursuing a career in physical therapy, I realized that maybe that wasn't the plan God had for me. On a beach trip in the summer of 2012, it became clear that I was a creative at heart and started my journey to become a photographer. I am so thankful for the opportunity to do what I truly love doing!
My love story began in high school when I met my husband, Jared. He is my absolute best friend in this entire world and I couldn't image doing life without him! Being able to photograph love stories for a living is the most incredible gift. I love sharing the excitement of being engaged with my brides. I love being able to give my couples memories that they will cherish for the rest of their lives. And I love that I get to make new friends through the entire process!
There's nothing I love more than spending time with my sweet family. I've been with my husband for 9 years and we've had our sweet pup for 2 years. We just welcomed our sweet boy, Leighton, in August and it's been our truest joy to be parents!
I loooooove an iced caramel macchiato from Starbs. I'm that basic.
I have a problem. Can you relate?!
I'm a pretty decent cook and love trying new recipes! I think it's because I grew up as the PICKIEST eater. Also recently found the best cookie recipe!
ESPECIALLY during the fall/winter. I just love the smell of fall and Christmas decorations. Endless Target and Hobby Lobby trips!
who is carly?
After the initial inquiry and booking, I'll send you a new client questionnaire that helps me get to know y'all a little better!
I'm here as a resource beyond being your photographer. If you need a vendor referral, I'm your gal! I'm also here to help you with your wedding day timeline and how to structure the day!
I'm a HUGE fan of engagement sessions not only to celebrate your love story and give you beautiful images to remember this season of engagement, but for the three of us to work together before the big day!
I'll check in with you a few months before the wedding and send you another questionnaire that tells me everything I need to know to put your timeline together and be the most prepared for your day.
The big day is here! That went by quickly, didn't it? Just know I'm PUMPED to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome.
I never want the relationship with my clients to end after the wedding day. I want to hear from you and even document your growing family when the time comes!
