"We traveled all the way from Iowa to California to get married in the redwoods and were lucky enough to be referred to Carrie to capture our day. We can’t even begin to explain how wonderful, caring, sweet and thoughtful Carrie was to work with. She made us feel so comfortable and our photos turned out amazing! Every photo looks like it was taken right out of a magazine. We would highly recommend Carrie to anyone and plan to have her capture more photos of us on our future trips to California." -Jade + Marcus
"I hired Carrie for our son's wedding in September 2019. She was easy to contact, quick to respond, and fun to work with. She kept in contact throughout the year of planning leading up to the wedding with the bride and also myself. On the wedding day, Carrie arrived early to get familiar with the venue. She was patient with everyone even though we had a big family of just our own to photograph. The gallery she set up made it easy to access all the finished photos. Would definitely hire her again!" -Wendy
"Carrie is amazing!! She was our Photographer for our June 2018 wedding in Fort Bragg, California. Not only does she take beautiful photos, but she takes the time to get to know you and your style. She is very easygoing and fun to work with. We asked her what some of her ideas were and went with her recommendations and the photos couldn’t have been more breathtaking. We were so happy with how everything turned out! She was very organized and always returned my emails quickly. We would HIGHLY recommend her!!" -Mary and Jack
"Carrie shot my wedding at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens and she did a beautiful job capturing all the special moments. It's so important to have a photographer that can be your second eye! Being the bride & groom, we missed a lot of details that our families and friends got to experience. Looking back at the pictures made us feel like we were there for the whole thing. I highly recommend Carrie to anyone looking for a highly personable and talented photographer who can make a story come to life through pictures!!"

"Talent is obligatory in photography but passion, creativity, and care are what set Carrie apart. What she produced for us was beautiful and artistic, soft but emotionally dense; seeing our photos reminds us of not only our day but why we chose to have our wedding in San Francisco. The album she designed for us looks like it's straight out of a magazine. Gorgeous!" -Jenn + Chris
"Carrie did our engagement session as well as our destination wedding in Jamaica. She was super flexible with traveling across the world to accommodate us. She definitely went above and beyond our expectations as a photographer. Carrie is creative, passionate, and delivers! We wanted smoke bombs, we got magic. We wanted waterfalls and got beauty beyond belief. We would recommend Carrie 1,000 times and will definitely be return clients." -Hayden + Holly
"We chose Carrie for our wedding in Fortuna and she was above and beyond everything what we could have ever asked for in a photographer. Neither my wife nor I are fans of being in front of a camera but Carrie made us feel so comfortable! I would definitely recommend her for any photography needs whether it be for your engagement, wedding, family, maternity, or newborn. Carrie is beyond AMAZING!" -Kristina + Kym
"I am beyond happy with Carrie's work. She was able to capture the beauty and intimacy of our special day so perfectly! She is friendly, professional and has a way of putting you at ease. Her eye for light is fantastic and is matched by her artistic vision. She was able to capture moments during our wedding ceremony without us even remembering she was there! We will treasure these pictures forever! Thank you Carrie!" -Rachel + Laura
"Carrie was the best! Being gay, we were very careful about who we chose to be part of our special day. We were instantly comfortable around Carrie. Her easygoing personality and professionalism were top notch. She is an amazingly talented photographer and also a great person. *Not to mention, she definitely hiked down a steep beach trail, with all of her gear, to capture our perfect moment. Who does that... Carrie does!" -Brittany + Kayla
"I had been secretly admiring Carrie's work for a few years, ever since she took a friend's sons senior portraits. So when it came time for my wedding, she was the first photographer that I thought of.
From the first contact that I had with Carrie, I felt like I was talking to an old friend. She was professional, courteous, up front, and answered any questions that I had.
I got married at a venue near Lake Mendocino in September and when I asked Carrie if we had time in our schedule to take pictures near the water, she went above and beyond to make it happen, as the dock area was closed for a triathlon the following day. Carrie worked her magic!
The way she captures the light is AH-MAZING! She helps you with posing tips to provide the best photos! I felt absolutely stunning on my wedding day and Carrie captured that feeling in the pictures that she delivered within 2 weeks of our date, which is exactly when she said she would!" - Amber + Ben
