In the world of wedding photography, I understand the phrase "one size fits all" doesn't apply.  Just like you and your fiance', it's important for us to go together like peanut butter and jelly!   The first step in the wedding process is your initial email followed by a short questionnaire and wedding collection guide.  Once you've booked and secured your date, we start making magic happen.

About carrie

"Being a creative has allowed me to have my own voice in life while making memories in this beautiful world."

I never thought in a million years I’d ever leave my full time job as a dental hygienist to pursue my passion as a creative. I am beyond thankful for the support and encouragement of friends, family, and my husband, Josh. I look forward to getting to know you!

a few favorites...

"when you love what you have, you have everything you need."

When I have down time, you can find me attempting recipes from The Pioneer Woman or helping out around our family farm.  Wine, cheese, and bread speak to my soul and lazy Sundays are the secret of life.  I enjoy coffee infused mornings on the front porch of our 1950's ranch and the excitement of traveling after hitting the "book now" button.  Good food and good company never go out of style and memes give my day comedic relief.  "The beach is my life"  are the words I described my first ocean experience when I was six years old and I, still to this day, am just as giddy putting my toes in the sand.  I'm just a simple girl living a simple life on a farm and I love every minute of it.

"Carrie was so much fun to work with during our engagement session. She constantly kept complimenting me even though it was humid and I felt like a sweaty mess, made my fiance laugh and totally encouraged the goofy! The pictures she took turned out so wonderfully, and I can't wait to work with her on my wedding day. I have no doubt that she will capture every important moment and make me feel confident. Thank you Carrie!

Carrie was the photographer at our wedding at The Barn at Fallingwater in July. She also took our engagement photos in Ohiopyle in May 2015. Carrie is the BEST there out there. She truly made our day special and captured every perfect moment. She is so easy to work with and such a pleasure to be around! Thanks Carrie! You rock!
