That first kiss feeling...

Hey There!

I'm Carianne, a California Wedding and lifestyle photographer. I'm so glad you're here! I know that scrolling through websites, looking for the best photographer to meet your needs can be overwhelming. I know because I have been there. Let's face it, they all have stunning images and offer similar packages and price points. 

So, how do you choose the right photographer? You find someone you can connect with, who makes you feel like a valued friend rather than just another paying client. Choose someone that you enjoy being around and trust!

natural,. joyful. timeless.

I consider myself a boutique photographer because of the unique and attentive way I serve you. It is my passion to provide you with a personalized experience, so you feel heard, valued, and loved. From the moment you inquire, I learn as much as I can about you, because when I know your story, I can create images that reflect who you are. 




What you can expect

When you make a purchase you have three choices, a good, better, or best option.
You can buy a Wal-Mart handbag, one from Macy's, or a Louis Vuitton. You can apply this to a steak dinner as well! You can order a steak at Denny's, a local steakhouse, or Ruth's Chris. With each choice you get a different level of quality, service, and experience.
When it comes to your wedding day, you need nothing less than the BEST!
Here are three ways I give my you the best experience:

1. Quality Images. I use top of the line equipment and am skilled at creating true-to-life images that aren't too bright or too dark and the subjects are sharp and in focus. 
2. Images that Illicit emotion. You want your images to connect you emotionally, so you remember how it felt, not just how it looked.  
3. Natural, True-to-Life Images. Your images will reflect exactly how things looked on your wedding day. I avoid trendy styles and editing that won't be "in"10 years from now. They are never over-edited or saturated with flash.
4. Consistency. What you see on my website and in my galleries is what you get. I have an editing process that ensures you'll get the quality and style of photos that you're dreaming of. 

The way an image looks and how it makes you feel is what will grab your attention. You're going to want scroll-stopping images of your wedding.

An experienced, professional photographer is essential on your wedding day.
Your photographer needs to know  what to do when things don't go as planned and be able to adjust on the spot.

 1. Organized. I utilize a variety of scheduling and planning tools to stay organized and on track. You never have to worry about me forgetting something!
2. Prepared. A lot of unplanned things can happen on a wedding day. It is my job to be prepared for anything to happen, from tricky lighting to bad weather, and be flexible on the spot.
3. Skilled. I know how to use flattering angles and give clear directions so  you feel comfortable and look your best in front of the camera. I use prompts, tell jokes, and maybe even dance with you to get genuine smiles and laughter. You will never feel awkward with me.
4. Knowledgeable. It isn't necessary for me to have photographed at your venue before. I know how to find the right light, avoid distracting backgrounds, and get dreamy portraits anywhere.

Even if a photographer is knowledgeable and takes beautiful images, the overall experience can still be horrible if there is lack of service.

 1. Timely Communication. You will never be left to wonder what to expect. I work with you to create a wedding-day-timeline and a family portrait shot list so things run smoothly and we don't get behind. 
2. Quick Turnaround. Not only do you receive communication in a timely manner, your images are delivered quickly also. My couples see their wedding gallery in just 2-3 weeks, sometimes even sooner!
3. Unique Experience. Your wedding story is unique. You need a photographer that doesn't just pile you in with all of the other couples they're photographing that year. The advantage to having a "Boutique-style" photographer is I only accept 10-15 weddings each year so that  you'll receive more attention and care each step of the way. 
4. Personality. I'm your hype girl! We'll  be spending a lot of time together on your wedding day, so I want you to feel supported, loved, and cared for. I'll be there to calm your nerves, fix your hair, give you space when you need it, and make sure you don't have lipstick on your teeth!
