MY Approach

Amidst the significant and emotional environment of your wedding day, I am comfortable in the chaos.

I will document your wedding with an intentional and artful approach while keeping the goal of capturing the true essence of the day at the forefront of how I shoot. Because when it's all said and done, your photography experience should feel effortless - a time for you to be completely yourselves. 

Photography should not drive your wedding day - moments should. Unposed, unplanned moments. The ones that will have you saying "remember this" when you're revisiting your images 30 years down the road. Things that might seem small or insignificant now will eventually be what you cherish most.

kind words from past clients

"My wife came across Carrie Coleman and scheduled a video call introduction with her. We immediately loved her..

She had a calmness and positivity about her that was infectious — exactly what you want on your wedding day amidst all the chaos.

Leading up to the wedding, I was just as nervous about taking photos as I was exchanging vows during our intimate ceremony, but Carrie made the whole experience painless, natural and enjoyable. Looking back on everything, my wife and I agree that our shoot with Carrie was one of our favorite memories of the whole weekend."

Michael & Samara

" I cannot recommend Carrie enough. She was an exceptional person and photographer, and her patience, relaxed aura, creativity, and positivity was noted by everyone, from my husband and my friends to my extended family, alike.

Having Carrie capture our special moments made it even more memorable for us.

It was so natural to have her photograph us, no matter how posed it should have felt in reality, and further, it was such a delight to spend time with Carrie, who became a lifelong friend throughout this process. What a special individual! Anyone would be crazy not to hire Carrie!

Liz & David

" I cannot say enough good things about the entire experience with Carrie as our photographer. From the very first conversation with with her, things were just different than with other photographers.

She brings the perfect combination of a relaxing presence and an organized professionalism to her craft.

Carrie made us feel incredibly comfortable from start to finish, and I can’t imagine spending our wedding day with anyone other than her & her team. Carrie perfectly captured the essence of Mark and me, our families, and our friends. It’s hard to describe other than they perfectly convey the feeling of love and joy we felt all weekend."
