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

Inspire Boston 2010

This last week was the whirlwind to start the whirlwind of all whirlwinds for me… and the butterflies are still in my belly to prove it! So, to give you a little back ground: I was a part of one of the BEST photo retreats / conferences / seminars I have ever been a part of! BIG thanks to Matt and Enna Grazier for dreaming this up and then finding the means to make it happen!!
Inspire Boston 2010 was amazing. It was beyond amazing, to be perfectly honest. There were so many photographers new to the business and so Read More

the dead mom’s club, four years later

Today marks four years since my Mom, Georgie Hernandez, died peacefully surrounded by her family. You want to know what one of her pet peeves was? She used to HATE when she would read the obituaries and that is all it would say! Even knowing that she was dying, she and I would read them, and she would get all heated and wonder aloud why people didn’t just say how they died. ‘so-and-so fell down the stairs, or it was a car accident or had cancer or COPD or whatever’.
They always left you thinking about the how and not Read More

It’s Grammy’s turn to buuuuurn in the fire here with our next installment of Celebrity Stunt Double!
Graham = Curt from Glee, minus the awesome singing and dancing skills, though I’d wager Graham just may do a great rendition of ‘Single Ladies’…. maybe he will show us when he comes to the studio later!

INSPIRE Boston 2010 Photography conference

One of my goals for 2010 was to put myself out there more for teaching purposes- see what else I could tackle in addition to the monthly Ten Eyck Tuesdays.

how do you remember?

.!.
Next week I am going on a trip of a life time with my Dad to Oaxaca in Mexico. I am going to document the day of the dead down there, and learn more about it from my Dad’s perspective. Since he’s Mexican and all, he should be an expert, right?
When my Mom died almost 4 years ago, I made an altar at her Memorial of things that were something special to her or our memory of her. I loved how it turned out, and spent a lot of time just looking at it, and taking in all Read More
