As a professional photographer myself, our wedding photography was one of the first tasks I took care of in our wedding planning, and I was completely impressed with Carlie at every step of the process. Her photography is technically and artistically outstanding, showing a very keen eye for clean composition and tight color palettes, and she was able to cater her shooting to a nice range of styles and environments. She also offered very flexible packages and delivery options, all at very reasonable prices for the superb quality of work - we never felt pressure to order more than we wanted or needed. Carlie handled the wedding day very professionally, and was a warm and subtle addition to our event. Highly recommended!

Carlie is truly a talented photographer and anyone who hires her will not be disappointed. My wife and I hired Carlie for our November Santa Cruz wedding. She definitely is one of our favorite vendors and was such a joy to work with.

We loved how professional she was and how she always responded to our questions quickly and clearly. When we hired her we knew that we didn't have to worry about telling her what to do on our big day. She brought her husband, Gabe, to help her during our wedding and they were both such a lovely duo to work with. Their easy going, calm, and fun loving personalities really helped us get through the last minute changes, especially when it started raining 10 minutes before our ceremony.

Carlie's style is real, passionate, gorgeous, artistic and beautiful. Her work truly speaks for itself and any bride or individual who hires her will not be disappointed. Check out her website and you'll see how truly amazing her work is.

Your search for an amazing photographer has ended.  Carlie did our wedding and she did a stellar job.  From the moment we met her we knew we were going to work well with her.  She is very professional and at the same time very down to earth, friendly and easy to work with.  Her prices are reasonable and more than fair considering the finished product.  When it came to the wedding day she had an extra shooter which was key.  She has a background in photo journalism which is exactly what we were looking for.  We loved the candid shots that she captured and the artistic shots of the wedding, much better than the typical posed pictures (although she did those for us as well).  I can't say enough good things about Carlie and her work.  I highly, highly recommend using her for any professional photography work, you WILL NOT be disappointed!!!  

With so many vendors to hire for our wedding, it was a huge relief to find someone like Carlie, it took so much headache out of our search.  She came recommended from a good friend of mine who told me the same things I mention above about Carlie, and she was absolutely right, she's the best.

Check out her website and you'll see what I mean...

Carlie was the best decision that we made by far for our wedding and it's not just about her incredible photographs - her and Gabe truly added to the joy of the day. Her relaxed and bright energy is contagious and she has that magical ability to put people at ease (which was great for those not used to having so many pictures taken of them but also just generally on what can sometimes be a stressful day). It's so clear that she loves what she does and it's really incredible - she will do anything for that perfect shot and she'll do it with a smile on her face! I am honestly inspired to see someone who is so passionate about what they do and so talented. Our pictures are amazing and not only did our families and bridal party talk about how much fun it was to have Carlie and Gabe on our wedding day, but they couldn't stop gushing about our photos. They are both masterful task masters as well - making sure to get through our robust shot list and get all the photos we wanted (sunset, dancing etc.) without making it seem like this big thing we're all waiting around for or a chore. When Carlie and Gabe shot our post-ceremony and sunset photos, they really made it feel like we were having a quite few minutes to ourselves, which were some of my favorite moments of the day (and we have gorgeous photos to remember it by too). They felt like great friends by the end of the whole process. I am so grateful that we found Carlie.

All the reviews on here are the absolute truth! Carlie exceeded our expectations and we have the most beautiful wedding pictures to prove it!  We felt so comfortable taking photos and did not look or feel awkward at all.  Carlie and Gabe are great people to work with and we cannot recommend them enough! If we got a married in a parking lot...she would have had some way to make it work and make us all look wonderful! Just looking at our wedding album brings smiles to our faces and we are blessed to have all the wonderful memories captured by the very talented Carlie Statsky:)

Carlie and Gabe are amazing people. We were so lucky (and happy!) to have them document our elopement.

Experience: they're responsive and easy-going from start to finish. They're open to negotiating wedding package wants, exploring new places, and exchanging ideas. There are not enough words to describe their work product and how they were able to capture the beauty of the day, happiness, us at ease. We received sneak peeks within days of elopement, images to download within weeks, and are now waiting for the album to arrive.

Photographers: you pay a little extra for the two of them (worth the investment!). They're genuine, generous, lovely people. Gabe drove the four of us around for hours, so we got to know them well. No awkwardness; lots of laughs :) We stopped at approx nine locations (incredible memories and photos!).

I've been meaning to write reviews for my amazing vendors for my wedding this past summer because I loved every single one, especially Carlie. She was the perfect photographer for my husband and I and she gave us incredible photos for our engagement and our wedding day. She is so much fun and made us feel comfortable when we aren't ones to pose for photos often. She was creative in her posing, and shots and had a fantastic eye for stunning photos. She handled our bridal party and families (both can be a handful) with ease and made us all laugh in the process. One of my favorite things she did was capture a photo of the entire wedding (guests included) right after the ceremony from a hilltop with all of us cheering. It is my favorite photo of our wedding and so much fun to see all of our guests.

Carlie and her husband worked so hard on our wedding day and provided us with amazing photos we can't stop looking at. We haven't even picked our album yet (we got married in June) because we love all of the photos so much we can't narrow it down! I highly recommend Carlie for your wedding, and we hope to have her photograph our family for years to come! Thank you Carlie for such amazing photos - they will be memories for a lifetime!

Aside fr om picking a venue, picking a photographer was the hardest part of wedding planning for us. We decided not to have a videographer, so I researched a ton of photographers to avoid any sort of horror story that I had heard from other couples. Carlie came highly recommended from our wedding coordinator. I had 5-10 photographers that I was researching but I always came back to Carlie's website and Instagram. There was just something about her style that really spoke to me. We had initially opted to not do engagement photos, but once we booked with Carlie we decided to do them. I felt like it would be good to get to know her before the big day. I am so glad we ended up doing them, she made us feel extremely comfortable with her laidback but professional attitude and took the time to get to know us a bit. She even let us bring our dog along, which was a huge plus for us! On the big day, both her and her husband Gabe shot the wedding. My husband and I were amazed at how well they work together. Carlie leads and Gabe just knows wh ere he needs to be, it was almost like they were communicating telepathically. We absolutely LOVE both our engagement and wedding photos and are so glad that we made the investment that we did. We highly recommend Carlie (and Gabe) for your photography needs, you will love them and their work!!

My husband and I hired Carlie as our wedding photographer.  Carlie and Carlie's husband, Gabe, were truly amazing.  Picking a photographer was one of the most important decisions for us, as the pictures are what you have to remember your special day.  I interviewed about 6 different photographers.  I knew after talking with Carlie and looking at her website/instragram that we wanted to hire her.  Carlie photographed our rehearsal dinner/ welcome party and wedding.  I really can't begin to express how wonderful and talented Carlie and Gabe are.  My husband and I had SO much fun and felt incredibly comfortable with Carlie and Gabe.  They were super responsive leading up to the wedding.  They great at giving us prompts and different poses on the day of and ensure they got all the shots they needed.  Carlie was by my side my entire wedding day.  She was like a warm blanket and I truly felt so at ease in her presence.  The comfort and fun energy they brought really showed in our photos too.  Carlie and Gabe are incredibly talented photographers and perfectly captured our special day.  We LOVE our photos and will cherish them for the rest of our lives.  My husband and I hope to have Carlie photograph our future family and really consider her a friend.  Hire Carlie and Gabe for your wedding or event.  They are such talented photographers, kind, and hard working people.  And the most adorable and fun couple ever.  Thank you for everything, Carlie and Gabe!!!!

Carlie has an artist's eye and Master level inner resources at play which produce beguiling results. She is able to make average people look like photogenic actors/models. Of course this does not mean she makes everyone a 10 in terms of beauty. This means she makes everyone look like they have that extra layer of energetic sparkle that sets actors and models a part fr om regular people. This is NOT the photographer to choose if you prefer the typically cheesy wedding or studio portrait photography wh ere everyone looks awkward and unattractive. This IS the photographer to choose if you want images that will make you feel good when you look at them for the rest of your life. It cannot be overemphasized, Carlie Statsky is a true Artist.
