scroll down to learn what it's like to be a CMP Bride...

After almost seven years of experience, I have learned a lot about what it takes to have the best wedding day coverage possible, and I have compiled everything I know in one place. This is how the CMP Wedding Experience was created.

I want all my couples to be able to enjoy time with your family and closest friends, all while documenting beautiful portraits of the two of you that show your love for one another. I want to tell the entire story of the day you have planned for so long, and last but not least, have as little stress as possible on your wedding day. 

The CMP Wedding experience is unlike any other

sweet words from our couples

Over the past seven years, I've had the honor of working with hundreds of brides - getting to know them like family! Do you want to know what it's like to be a CMP Bride?

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!

"we didn't have to compromise having our dream wedding."

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."

• Jennifer & john  2019 •

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

"I know she was the perfect choice for my wedding."

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. 

"Carrie and John are classy, thoughtful, and hard working."
