The Crossings at Carlsbad

Carrie did a great job staying in communication with us, taking pictures, editing, and following our requests to a T! She was very accommodating and followed right into schedule with our wedding. By the time we received our pictures, we were blown away by the quality and detail of the photos. It was everything we wanted and more! We definitely recommend Carrie!

The Andez and El Cortez

Carrie was so nice & accommodating for our wedding. We had our "first look" at Andaz downtown San Diego, and our ceremony/reception was at the El Cortez... she nailed our vision for both. She even drove us to the venue (which we completely forgot to plan, whoops!). Her prices are affordable and she's obviously very experienced. Thank you!

Carrie is purely bomb dot com! What a wonderful photographer. I hate taking photos and often actively avoid them if possible. However, on the wedding day I felt super comfortable. Carrie has such a warmth and soothing persona - it's easy to be natural and focus on your wedding. She has very reasonable rates, a big consideration when planning a wedding. On the day of the wedding she was super chill and available for however long we needed. She's just great. Chat with her on the phone and you'll discover what I know. You can't go wrong!

Carrie was the perfect choice for our wedding photographer.She was extremely easy to work with and made us feel comfortable from the beginning. I barely knew she was there during the ceremony and reception but she captured the most amazing pictures and all of the special moments.

We just received our pictures back and were completely blown away, not only by the quality but the quantity of pictures we received. I wanted our pictures to be natural and not too "Photoshop" looking and they turned out even better than expected. And we received all of our pictures back in less than a month! Our pictures turned out beautiful! We absolutely could not be happier with our choice and are so thankful for Carrie capturing our special day.

Carrie was a pleasure to work with and very responsive, and her photos of my wedding were amazing! She's great with both posed and candid shots. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Carrie was the perfect choice for our wedding and our pictures turned out beautifully! She was so easy to get along with and made us feel comfortable on the most important day of our lives. She made sure that we had all of the pictures that we wanted, and was so good that we got to enjoy some of our cocktail hour!

The biggest surprise for us was when we received our pictures. We obviously knew which ones would be of us, but we were blown away when we saw how many amazing photos were taken of our guests, the ceremony and the scenery of the day.

Thank you Carrie for capturing every special moment of our wedding day!

Loved Carrie, loved her photos!! I will definitely be using her if we do professional family photos. She did my wedding & had two assistants to help get every angle. She's flexible, accommodating, & super sweet.

Carrie was great to work with. She was so down to earth and easy to get along with. Our engagement photos turned out amazing, and the sneak-peak of our wedding photos has us very excited. She did a great job at the reception too capturing our guests. We had multiple people tell us how she seemed to be capturing everything without really knowing she was there. Would highly recommend having her take your photos.

The Omni Hotel San Diego

Carrie was an absolutely amazing photographer for our wedding at the Omni Hotel San Diego. We had a great experience with her from start to finish. Her packages are wonderful and she is very reasonably priced especially considering all that she offers and her quality of work. We received beautiful engagement and wedding pictures from her in a super timely fashion especially compared to other photographers who can take months and months to deliver. I couldn't have asked for more on our wedding day! If you go with Carrie, you will be easily attracted to her easy going personality. I can't recommend her enough for your wedding day!

Words hardly do justice when trying to explain someone's creative gift. That being said I will try my best. My wife Dawne and I hired Carrie to cover our wedding for us. Long story short she did an absolutely amazing job. She had one assistant photographer, Catherine, who was there to help provide additional coverage for the groomsmen along with multiple angles of the same shots. To start both Carrie and Catherine are extremely pleasant and professional. They make it very easy and stress free to smoothly flow through the gauntlet of events during your wedding. Second not only were the shots they captured beautiful, but they provide a complete timeline and story of our wedding day from start to end. Lastly, you don't even realize they are there. There were so many times my wife and I were just amazed by the shots they captured because they were so up close and personal yet we honestly had no idea they were even being taken. We both would highly recommend Carrie on all levels for any type of event you would like professional pictures taken. I know if we need to have professional photos done down the road we are absolutely going to use her.

We hired Carrie for our daughters wedding in June and the photos are beautiful! Carrie and her 2nd photographer were very easy to work with and really didn't need too much instruction from us other than the "must-have" shots and family members, etc. We were very happy with what we received and would highly recommend Carrie to anyone who wants beautiful wedding pictures and ease of service. Being "out-of-towners" made us rely on referrals and this was easily one of the best we received.

Mission Bay Rowing Club

Carrie was an absolutely amazing choice for us for our wedding. My Step Mom is also a wedding photographer and had worked with Carrie once several years ago and was so impressed by her work and skills that she recommended her to me years later!
After meeting with a few other photographers we chose Carrie because of her years of experience, beautiful portfolio of photos, the recommendation from my Step Mom and her incredible value. Her prices were affordable and reasonable and she has a lot of ways to customize the services to meet your needs.
We hired her for 9 hours (2nd shooter always included) and gave ourselves plenty of time to take quality shots before our wedding (we did a first look) and we ended up with hundreds of gorgeous, amazing photos. We can't even decide which ones we love most because there are so many. I also made a Pinterest board of photography inspiration for Carrie to look at prior to the wedding and she studied it and got all the shots I wanted for our big day. I would highly recommend Carrie.

Carrie did a wonderful job photographing our intimate elopement ceremony. She was so easy and pleasant to work with. She was very flexible with us as we planned our ceremony from half way across the country and very helpful in planning a location as well. We received the photos very quickly and all of them were perfect. They captured the beauty of the moment and the surroundings! Not to mention she is very affordable! Love her!

Carrie did a fabulous job photographing our wedding. She really captured the love and joy we experienced that day and I couldn't have asked for anything more. Our album is amazing and we ended up buying two more to use as gifts for our parents!

We were referred to Carrie by numerous friends and after looking at her website absolutely loved her style. We had the pleasure to work with her for our engagement session and our wedding in August. Carrie was such a pleasure to work with. She is creative and makes sure she gets a variety of shots that capture all the important aspects of you as a couple and the event. She also takes into consideration your own style and personality. She made this process so easy and enjoyable. I would refer her to anyone!!

I am a wedding planner and I worked with Carrie this past July for my clients Malibu wedding. She worked with us to find a time that worked for my clients very busy schedules to do the engagement session and to no surprise, after their positive experience, she was hired for their wedding. She really worked with us to follow our timeline and was flexible, making sure she got all the right shots! Having already seen the photos come back (yes, it was FAST!), I have to say she captured the day perfectly and that she did her job just right- making you relive the happiest day of your life! I was very pleased with her work, as were my clients, and I would be happy to work with her again!

Simply amazing! Carrie is one of those rare photographers who is not only extremely talented, but is a real pleasure to work with. She gets the fact that the pictures she's taking are capturing the most important moments in a lifetime. You will NOT be just another client to her. She takes the time to listen to what you want and makes sure you are happy. Carrie is professional, kind and fun, but most of all, she is so very, very good. As someone else mentioned, she has suggested poses/actions that I would not have thought of, and those are some of my favorite pictures! Carrie has photographed our family twice and we cherish the memories she captured. I can't say enough good things about Carrie, but I can say you will not regret booking her! She has definitely earned her excellent reputation - it doesn't get better than Carrie!

We met Carrie at a wedding show. She was the only photographer with a printed price list. She was calm and very pleasant to talk to. At our daughters wedding she was never intrusive yet got all the beautiful moments. Thank you Carrie!!!

Sierra S

Carrie is fabulous to work with! My husband is not one for taking pictures and she worked so well with that. She offered multiple ideas and poses for us so nothing felt staged or uncomfortable. Carrie did our engagement pictures and we could not be happier. I definitely recommend Carrie

Amy R

Carrie has just returned beautiful family portrait pictures and my husband and I couldn't be happier! Carrie has always been open to our ideas and delivers just what we expected and more. She puts us at ease and was great with our young sons. I am constantly referring friends and family to her as I think her talent and service are above and beyond.

We first used Carrie for our Vegas wedding way back in 2002. She was more than accommodating when it came to travel and rehearsal dinner/reception photos (the Paris Hotel does not allow other photographers during the ceremony). What I love most about our pictures is her attention to detail and capturing the moment. We have wonderful pictures of our friends and family (some who are no longer with us) absolutely enjoying our day and their time in Vegas.

Carrie is truly an amazing, professional, talented photographer! She was our wedding photographer, as well as our family photographer ( maternity, newborn and family pics). She is so sweet and definitely knows what's she's doing! She is worth every penny! I tell my friends and family all about Carrie! Definitely go with her if you want nice family pics, she's awesome! :)
