If you are scrolling this page, you must be newly engaged to the love of your life, and so excited to begin your happily ever after.

In the midst of admiring the shiny new ring on your left hand, you probably have a million things on your mind like booking a wedding venue that will delight your guests, finding the perfect dress, and picking a romantic honeymoon destination. 

Celebrating and artfully documenting your unique love story

A Personalized, Boutique Experience

Planning a wedding is no small task, and choosing the perfect wedding photographer to capture it all can seem overwhelming.

You're in the right place. That’s where I come in.

One thing you shouldn't stress over is your wedding photography. Put your trust in me to capture all of the pretty little details that you have worked so hard to bring together, the people that are present to celebrate with you, and the joy you feel as you marry your best friend. Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, and your wedding photographs should reflect that.

The Carly Rose Photography Experience

Your Love Story, Artfully Told

One of the best pieces of advice I have ever received was given to me the day I became a fiancé. My mom told me, "Never forget how happy you are right now." That advice has stuck with me ever since.  There is no greater happiness felt than the day you receive that sparkly ring.  My goal is to tangibly preserve this happiness for you in photos that will be hung on your walls and flipped through in your wedding album.

Working with Carly Rose Photography allows you to put your focus on the love you have for one another. Let's pop a bottle of Veuve and toast to your engagement! I can't wait to celebrate with you and help you remember just how happy you are right now, for the rest of your lives.

Weddings On Film


Film’s romantic and nostalgic look lends well to  wedding photography.  It creates images that are imperfect and unique- something that the modern mechanics of digital cameras can’t fully replicate.
