hello there, friends!

I'm wedding and portrait photographer from Southern California, and I am based out of the quaint wine country town of Temecula California. We also love to travel so if your wedding is a destination, count us in! I'm a mama to a cute little dapper seven-year-old blondie and my fur babies Bella and Bokeh. I am obsessed with decorating and have a love for wine.

After over 7 years of wedding experience, I have learned what it takes to create a true experience over just a service. I want to be with you each step of the way to ensure the best wedding experience possible.

I'm Carrie, and I'm so glad you're here!

meet rachael 

Racheal has an incredible way of connecting couples in such an engaging way that is really hard to find! Her playful demeanor always puts her couples at ease and creates truly genuine and personal  images. Racheal has a way of making her couples laugh and enjoy the moments freely. This results in images that are so playful and  natural. Having Racheal on board as my associate to my team brings a wonderful presence along with the ability to have her on your wedding day if we are already committed to another date.

 a hopeless romantic with a passion for love stories.  I'm a lover of pretty details, vibrant colors, and a good glass of wine and I joined the Carrie McGuire Photography team as an associate photographer in 2018. 


I adore adventure, traveling and cherish experiences. I have a bachelors degree in business communications, and I’m a chapter co-leader of a community based group called the Rising Tide Society where I volunteer my time in between weddings.When I’m not photographing weddings and portrait sessions, I’m usually spotted with a book in hand, as I love reading. Or you’ll probably find me making my way to the mountains or a new destination for a bit of an adventure.

"One of my favorite things to photograph during a wedding are details. from cherished heirlooms, to The expressions of pure joy, when a groom sees his bride for the first time or when a father sees his daughter in her wedding gown and the tears trickle down,these pure moments of joy are the moments that I love the most!

From our first email to the almost tearful goodbye (on my part) at the reception, Carrie and John were so genuine, so very helpful during the entire wedding planning and the pictures are breathtaking. They made us feel so comfortable like we have know them for a lifetime. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I would be so over the moon excited, happy, tearful and just full of joy looking at our wedding photo's they took! They captured our day like I never imagined!

"Carrie will always have such a special place in our hearts for capturing our love."

There couldn’t be a better wedding photographer. Not only is Carrie the sweetest human ever she is also so personal. On the day of her and John were so fun and had so many good ideas. Three days following I get my blog post and OH MY GOSH the photos are perfect.

My experience with Carrie and her team was fantastic. I know she was the perfect choice for my wedding. She was helpful and professional and made me feel so relaxed. Her past work on her blog speaks for itself so I never had a moment of worrying about the photos. I always felt like she knew me, from the bridal guide to the beautiful gift she sent us it was a job very well done

Carrie and John are a fantastic team! They are so personable yet professional. They make the awkward experience of getting your photo taken so much easier with tips and tricks to make you feel comfortable. Carrie never lost her cool and kept me feeling calm in stressful moments before the wedding. Carrie and John are classy, thoughtful, and hard working. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else for our wedding day. <3
