Leah D. Married couple on 20 Mar 2021
Oh my goodness, I can't say enough about Carissa and how much we appreciate her! Not only was Carissa completely flexible and understanding when our plans changed, she just is the most pleasant person to be around! She got every shot we could have wanted and much more. Our friends couldn't get over our wedding album and how amazing our photos turned out. Carissa is a gem and by booking her you can rest assured your special moments are captured in an exquisite and breathtaking way. She is adventurous in capturing, creative, and talented. She is simply THE BEST!
Megan C. Married couple on 19 Feb 2022
Carissa is one of a kind. Not only is she extremely talented but she’s so wholesome. She truly cares about her clients and bringing their vision to life. She is super knowledgeable, creative and innovative. There was no one else that I trusted more than Carissa to capture my wedding day. My wedding gallery is something that I will cherish forever.
Tayler Davis Married couple on 09 Mar 2019
Carissa is AMAZING!! She is kind, caring and charismatic. She was constantly checking in with us about every detail along the way. She made sure we got exactly what we wanted for photos and kept it under time. Most importantly she is down to earth and made myself, my husband and our families feel comfortable and relaxed during the entire shoot. She is worth every single cent!! She captivated our special day and became one of the family.
Rhea Cheong A Shack Married couple on 10 Jul 2021
This review is so long overdue. That’s mostly because I wanted to keep Carissa all to myself.
I struggle with finding the right words to described her as a person and her art. She is BEYOND AMAZING. Carissa has this special ability, I call it her superpower, to make you feel like you’ve known her for years, and be so comfortable, so open, that she’s able to capture your true essence in the time that she has. I recommend Carissa to everyone that asks, even if they didn’t - lol.
I have so many photos that I will no doubt cherish forever and it’s all thanks to her.
I’m already looking forward to booking her for my many other milestones.
Trust me when I say you won’t go wrong if you book her.
Thank you Carissa. For everything.
Valerie Mytroen Married couple on 20 Aug 2022
Carissa is so professional and so fun and loving. She did our wedding pictures and I couldn’t have imagined anyone more perfect. She advocated for us and the pictures we wanted and let us have fun and be natural. If your on the fence DO IT! Pick Carissa she is fabulous!
Chelsey Bigelow Married couple on 10 Aug 2019
Carissa! Most likely one of the best photographers in the area. She is committed and dedicated to her clients, she is easy going and super informative. She wants the best out of your special moments, just as you would! Her photos are detailed and edited perfectly, but not over edited! She captures all the little moments when there is so much going on around her. I would highly recommend Carissa to anyone looking for engagement and wedding photography! It’s hard to come by genuine business women these days and Carissa is definitely one of them.
Jocelyn Bamber Married couple on 04 Sep 2021
Carissa is hands down the best decision made during my wedding planning process. When I initially booked her I was drawn in by her beautiful photography style and ability to capture what seemed like some pretty special moments between couples. What happened after I booked her, far exceeded my expectations. Not only did Carissa go above and beyond, she also became a friend. She took the time to get to know my husband and me and we instantly connected. Her taking these extra steps to do this truly captured my relationship perfectly. Carissa is thorough and has an amazing eye for detail. The photos we received I will forever cherish. It’s truly overwhelming to look through all the photos because I love them all so much. I’ve had so many friends, family and strangers reach out to me to let me know how much they love the photos they’ve seen as well. Carissa most definitely is stuck with us for the rest of time because once my husband and I start a family there is nobody else I want to capture our special moments! Carissa, we can’t thank you enough. Truly. Thank you.
Katrina Dauphinee Married couple on 17 Apr 2021
She was amazing, completely wonderful to have on our big day she was honestly a calming spirit  (on such a stressful day) she went above and beyond.
Krista Kenny Married couple on 13 Aug 2022
Carissa is the ABSOLUTE BEST photographer you will ever find. She is very professional with the most amazing personality. She created the most comfortable environment to work in while also always bringing it with the jokes and tunes. Both myself and my husband rarely take pictures and are super awkward about it, but she helped us with all the details for our engagement shoot, down to location and outfits. Both our engagement and wedding photos were absolutely stunning!! I’ve honestly gone through my wedding photos almost daily since she has sent me the album. She truly knows how to capture your entire day. It plays just like the movies, telling the most special story of your wedding capturing the pure love, happiness and joy that was felt throughout that entire perfect day. Carissa truly cares about her clients and it’s very evident in her work. She is truly passionate about what she does. I’m so grateful that she was our photographer!
