Hey there, I’m Carly!

I am a wedding photographer living in Minneapolis. I graduated with a degree in Animal Science, but the only time you'll find me using it is snuggling up with my two furry bed hogs, Bugsy & Molly.

Most people would say I am joyful, outgoing, and a little bit of a dork. I snort when I laugh and am probably the only adult still afraid of the dark. Living a healthy lifestyle is important to me but let's be real - I would eat macaroni and ice cream every day if I could. Minnesota will always have my heart, but I live for adventure and take every opportunity to pack my bags and see something new.

When I'm not working, you’ll likely find me curled up on the couch enjoying a glass of Chardonnay, or surfing the latest designs at West Elm and dreaming up my next home project. My plant obsession is slowly taking over my little apartment, and you can bet every single one has a name. I wish every day could be Sunday, soaking up warm summer sun and walking the pups. I am not much of a chef (and have managed to nearly burn my eyebrows off on a few occasions), but I make the best pumpkin bars with homemade cream cheese frosting you'll ever eat. Seriously, they're good.

I love creating timeless images that will never go out of style. Capturing those moments that make your heart skip, feel the wind in your hair, want to jump-up-and-down-in-your-underwear kind of feels. Natural light and film are my tools of choice. I believe that photography is about curating with intention and following your heart through every frame. All my life I've invested my whole self into everything I do, and photography is no different; I am thankful to say that I have pursued my life dream and am lucky to do what I love every single day.

Here's a few of my favorites!
