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!

Carrie is a pleasure to work with, she is very responsive on our questions regarding the micro wedding package her team offered. We were in love on the idea of LUXURY INTIMATE ELOPEMENTS. It is very practical and we loved it because we didn't have to compromise us having our dream wedding. From the littlest details up until the day of coordination it was such a relief for Brides & Grooms that planned wedding twice or more due to COVID. Her photography style is to perfection!

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."

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.
