Hi there! I'm Carly, a naturopathic doctor with a serious passion for photography. I've been pushing and clicking buttons for as long as I can remember, and began pursuing photography at a very young age. Since I was in medical school, photography had become my creative outlet and I wouldn't have it any other way! I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona and have immense love for my ever sunny state. I love traveling to new places and learning about different cultures, finding hidden waterfalls, and am obsessed with all things marble patterned.

During the week you can find me in a white coat seeing patients, and on the weekends I get to photograph the most incredible clients! In between you can usually find me in comfy yoga pants, hanging with my pups and fiancé, and never without my chapstick! I am passionate about health and wellness and love being outdoors hiking, camping, and exploring! I'm a firm believer that travel and experiencing other cultures fills the soul, and therefore will jump at any opportunity to travel!

The saying "It's all in the details" rings true to me! When capturing weddings, the details really take the setting from beautiful to a jaw dropping WOW! Most of my brides feel the same way, and love planning out the details associated with their vision. Detail photographs help couples remember their day from beginning to end with attention. Details also allow the story of the day to flow from one event to the next! 

I love details

There is just something about a gorgeous bouquet that brings life to the day! There are so many ways to incorporate gorgeous florals into your wedding. Bouquets, table settings, ceremony arch, photo backdrops, and more! Colorful flowers are my favorite, but there is also something so elegant about white roses and greenery..

I've always been a planner, but when it comes to photographing weddings planning is an imperative part of the process! I will help you design your timeline so that we can be sure to have enough time for all the special photographs throughout the day. Planning with me ensures that we are on the same page for the big day, and will help transition seamlessly from one event to the next.

I love planning

Now let's have some fun! Weddings are essentially one big party, and I'm here to capture it all for you. I do love a good party, and you can find me on the dance floor busting out some moves while photographing your guests having the times of their lives!

parties are my absolute fav!

My fiancĂ© Brandon and I met in high school and have been together ever since! We endured years of long distance relationship as we went to different colleges, but love persevered. We are very proud dog parents to 3 beautiful pups. Rocky and Zeena (our newest addition!) are Italian Mastiffs and Dusty is a Shitzu. Complete opposites, but they are the best of friends. We love taking them hiking, camping, and on walks around the neighborhood.
