Eyes up, heart open

My most important job as your  photographer is to tell the story of your wedding day while making you and your family and friends comfortable.

I believe the more comfortable you are, the better your pictures will be.

My typical client loves their family + friends over anything. Always, always. They value time spent together, and are able to appreciate the quieter moments in their relationships, that strung together, share a story of deep love.

They appreciate beautiful photography, art and design. Someone who lets me do what I do best, and trusts my many years of experience in the industry. Whether you are the most camera-shy person or the biggest ham, there is no cookie-cutter approach to every client.

I will get you comfortable in a way that is best for you.

Here you can view my most recent weddings, events and other fun sessions. Grab a cup of coffee and get comfortable, I have been happily blogging since 2006, so there is all of the content to do a deep dive and see if I am the right fit for you and your event.

I pride myself on being a welcoming + inclusive photographer + human being and embrace everyone. I am so happy you are here to view my work, stay as long as you’d like and please feel free to leave a comment or share any posts! XO Carla Ten Eyck

happy birthday mom

Dear Mom,
Happy Birthday! I’m sorry to say I don’t know how old you would have been today. We all know I suck at math. I guess the good part about dying is that you get to be immortalized at the age you were when you died… so for you, happy eternal 59th birthday! I remember when I thought that 59 felt like so far away. Shit I thought 40 was old! That’ll be me next April, can you imagine Mom? But here you are, 59 years young, forever. I have to say I struggle with that number Mom. Read More

queen anne’s lace field shoot

If I’ve said it once I’ve said it probably twice… this is the year of the personal project for me, in a big way. There are a bunch of things I have in some sort of production stage- whether it’s stuff I have actually shot or things that I have  squirreled away in my pink and purple haired crazy brain for later. Waiting for the perfect time. Kind of like this here shoot. Many of you that know me know that I have been on the quest for the perfect field of Queen Anne’s Lace. For a few years now Read More

ophelia inspired editorial shoot

Where do I even begin? Once upon a time there was a painting. And I fell in love with so many aspects of it, that I just couldn’t shake it from my soul. It’s funny because only recently have I started to delve into my obsession with Ophelia inspired art. Hands down my favorite is Millais’ Ophelia painting that I had the thrill of seeing in person this spring on a recent trip to London’s Tate Britain. I was stunned into uncharacteristic silence as I stood back and took it all in. It was… perfect. Breathtaking and moody. That in Read More

david hockney, ophelia and critiquing paintings

**this was written this past spring, just got around to sharing it! Also. Please read in a British accent. It will sound way smarter! That is all. Cheers!
Right now I am in London shooting for one of my U.S. based commercial clients for the week and am just wrapping up today. We had some amazing meals, tasty fruity ciders that I HOPE we can find back in the states, and have done a great job for our client. All in all? A solid, pretty amazing week!
Some highlights so far (we still have a week in Paris left!) Read More

essex ct steam train engagement session

Quite a while back now, Jasmine and I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Trisha and Aaron’s train-themed engagement session. I have some clients who want to do something a little out of the norm for their shoot and I am always more than happy to oblige! Their wedding had a train theme, since they met on a train- so we thought it only fitting to work a train theme into their engagement shoot! And what a shoot we had… I can’t tell you how worked up we all got! Everything was perfect, Tricia and Aaron and how eager and Read More

playa del carmen mexico editorial shoot behind the scenes

An unexpected little surprise of a trip came our way this spring right before I headed down to New Orleans to photograph a wedding in the French Quarter. And if that weren’t glamorous enough, this particular job landed us smack in the middle of one of the most beautiful beaches in the universe- Playa del Carmen, Mexico! How could I say no, right? So I adjusted my schedule and got my sunscreen ready, and as you will all be thrilled to see… my bathing suit!
Here is a little peek into the behind the scenes of what goes on Read More

six years ago today

 

There is something about an anniversary  that sometimes overshadows everything. Maybe it’s the fact that you know it’s coming, and that you think you are supposed to feel one way or another- depending on if it’a happy or sad anniversary. Dodie and I talk about this a lot and both get a little irritated about the pressure that surrounds the ‘anniversary.’
At exactly 1:30 p.m. today it will be six years that my Mom died. And like every year, I have been dreading this week. But then I got really busy with work and despite trying not to Read More

the measure of my success

Today marks a milestone for me as a business owner and person and I just wanted to share. Ever since I had anyone working with me, even when it was just me and Dodie at weddings way back in the day- all I wanted to do was be able to help out those who were helping me.
Let me flash back here for a sec. Growing up I always thought I had less than most, and the reality is I did. As an adult I can honestly say that I was not really looking at the world that I lived Read More

my very own surprise ct backyard vow renewal

As a recap to this year of 2011, I can’t think of a better event to close with and start 2012 with then our very own vow renewal in our very own back yard!! Here’s how it came about…
I have been thinking long and hard about doing a video on the studio, to show what we are all about without being too melodramatic or taking ourselves too seriously whilst straddling that very fine line of not being too unprofessional in the process! It’s a thin, badly drawn line at times for us photographers and we have all been known Read More
