CARLIE // My infatuation with photography began with my first backpacking trip to Tasmania when I was a teenager growing up in Australia. I fell in love with the process of slowing down to frame and focus on anything that captivated me. It seemed magical to me that these tangible photographs somehow added an intangible reverence to my trip. That adventure led me to study and practice the art of photography. After earning a BA in photo-journalism, I worked as a freelance photojournalist, portrait photographer and wedding photographer, with photography exhibitions in Sydney, Barbados, and California. After having kids and become extra sentimental as a result, I found myself drawn to focus solely on weddings and lifestyle portraits and I’ve been honored to have my photography published in many of the leading luxury wedding magazines and blogs from Martha Stewart and Style Me Pretty, to People and The Knot magazine. My photography is an intuitive mix of fine art photography and photojournalism. I like my images to have a natural and editorial feel to them, and I’m always drawn to beautiful light and decisive moments full of connection, intimacy and joy. I love to get to know whoever I’m photographing and get them relaxed in front of the camera by taking a casual approach. I try to avoid anything that feels too posed or forced, and I always strive to tell each couple’s unique love story in a way that feels authentic and ethereal … like how a good memory feels. I shoot every wedding together with the amazing man I married nearly 2 decades ago. Gabe has been an artist since long before I met him. What began as a way to spend more time together, has grown into a strong and dynamic photography team. After almost 2 decades of shooting weddings together, we know exactly how to compliment each other and capture a wide range of perspectives that help to tell the full story of a very special day.

GABE // Gabe is a man of many skills, among the most impressive being his ability to take pictures that make his wife jealous, make a groom’s tie look just right, make everyone crack up during the group portraits, and get compliments from many a grandma about his good looks and kind demeanor. I couldn’t be luckier to have such a talented, creative, humorous and loving partner to work with, and there is no one I would rather have beside me to document each wedding and then talk about all of the highlights of the day as we drive home together.
