"We chose to work with Carissa because we didn't want the perfectly posed "smiling at the camera" images that you see all the time. We chose her because we felt like every single one of her images captured the couple in such an authentic emotional way, that told the story of who they are. We were so excited and nervous about shooting with her, but she immediately made us feel so comfortable, like we had known her forever. During the shoot we completely forgot we were even in front of the camera, and instead were just caught in the moment with each other having the the time of our lives. The photos are more than just photos. They tell our story of exactly how we are at this special time in our lives. Working with Carissa was the best decision we ever made."
