We had such a wonderful time with Carter for our engagement shoot. She is such an artist and delivered such beautiful and dreamy photos just as I was hoping for! She made the shoot a stress free and fun experience and I would definitely book with her again the next time I need photos!

We had such a wonderful time with Carter for our engagement shoot.

My fiancé and I choose Carter for our engagement shoot and she made the entire process easy going for a couple who doesn't love to be behind the camera. My fiancé at first felt uncomfortable because he HATES pictures but we let Carter work her magic and do her job and by the end of the photo shoot we were a lot less stressed and having a blast! Carter also offers a very enticing price range and her pictures are always amazingly edited! I loved working with her!

Carter is so easygoing!!
