    More about Carla

    "Carla was a joy to work with on our engagement and wedding photos! Our photos could not be more perfect and Carla managed to make it all feel so seamless. I have been to weddings where the photo time seems infinite but she got amazing, personal photos done so quickly. She has a big bubbly personality and is incredibly vibrant. She makes you feel amazing while she's taking the shots and the portraits but during the event she totally disappears but somehow manages to be everywhere and take pictures of everything! It was great working with her and I would definitely recommend her. The quality of her work is incredible!"

    – Anna Costello

    "If you've read all of the reviews, you already know that Carla is an incredible photographer. At the end of the day, this is why we wanted to work with her. But, what we loved most about working with Carla is how she makes you feel when you are with her. In our early meetings, she made us feel at ease. We had soo many questions and she was very patient with us. She is fun, loving and just exciting to be around. We talked for two hours straight! We knew we wanted her energy at our wedding. On the wedding day, she was equally incredible. Every idea and inspiration that she had made her so excited. This positive energy was directly passed to us and made us feel so special. She also managed the wedding party extremely well. One huge surprise that she gave us was posting some pictures to her blog shortly after the wedding. Rather than having to wait to see pictures, we were SO thrilled to get a sneak peak so soon! Carla's talent was very evident. They were amazing! She is amazing"

    – Katie Hasson

    "Carla was absolutely amazing!! If you are looking for a photographer who will not only make you feel comfortable, but will also make you laugh and take the most AMAZING photos, then Carla is the one for you! She took both our engagement photos and our wedding photos, and it was by far the best decision we made! We were so happy with all of the photos, it has been so hard to narrow down some to be framed! THANK YOU CARLA!"
