“Carly is super flexible, knows exactly how to get the shots we need and flawlessly interacts with the client as well!"


"I have so much to say, I could literally cry. My gratitude towards Carly is truly endless. She made my dreams come to life. Carly brought everything to the next level. She has made me have fun and think outside of the box. While I hadn't made all the best decisions over the last few months prior to launch, hiring Carly was one of the best ones."


“Love everything about Carly, her creativity, images, skills and personality!"


“Not only does she take great photos, Carly is a joy to be around and easy to work with! Adding value to our event experience!"




“I have done multiple shoots with Carly and you are in great hands!She is professional, fun, makes you immediately comfortable, creative and gets the shots you need + more and her personality is just amazing!”


"Carly is transparent and provides all information needed up front. She takes beautiful pictures to capture the moment and provides content for continued use. A pleasure to work with + quick turnaround time for images is a plus!”


“Carly is such a joy to work with. We've been working together for years now, and I am continually impressed by her professionalism. She is always early, comes prepared, has an upbeat attitude, is flexible, and jumps right into any project. She's extremely creative and can shoot any type of project from a small campaign to a huge editorial. She puts just as much effort into a small one off photo shoot, as she does on a large scale production. Bonus - she also knows how to style a photo and offers valuable input that a creative director has."
