Hey there! I'm Carissa

5 years ago I picked up a camera and realized the best gift that I can give people is memories. My passion for photography is driven from documenting real  human connection. Seeing how much my couples can love and be loved by their people is what I love most about what I do.
I pour my heart into my photography, because to me, it is so much more than just a job. These photos are one of the only tangible thing you will take away from your wedding day, and that’s not a responsibility I hold lightly. Yeah, I could show up with a camera, take some pictures, and call it a day – it would make my job a lot easier, but anyone can do that. Beautiful photos are easy, but beautiful photos that tell your story take work. I want to build a relationship with you beyond just being your photographer and spend time really getting to know the people that mean the most to you. I will put everything I have into these photos, because that’s what it takes to do your story justice.
I grew up in Texas, but was lucky enough to get to escape from the intense heat and humidity during the summer months to a small town tucked away in the southwest mountains of Colorado. Colorado is my happy place, and is where I discovered my deep love of the mountains, alpine lakes, wildflowers, and exploring the outdoors. I am a road trip fanatic, and have a bed built in the back of my car. To me, there is nothing better than camping under the stars and smelling like campfire. My 4 Runner has taken me on some pretty epic adventures and allowed me to experience so much that I am eternally grateful for.
but first I'll tell you a little about mine.
Get to Know Me
I WANT YOU TO TELL ME YOUR STORY
These are the things that I want to remember most in 30 years, and that’s why I’m so passionate about capturing this for others. This is the stuff that matters, the real stuff.
This is Russell, my best friend and adventure budy for life. He’s a big nerd and is obsessed with Star Wars and Marvel movies, and I would be lying if I said he hasn’t got me hooked on them also. He’s the funniest, goofiest person I've ever met, but more importantly he's a huge part of my life and is the person that I do basically everything with.

I love adventure, but when it’s all said and done what I care about most is the little things in life. Evening walks, cooking together, snuggling on the couch watching The Office, tickle fights, staying up late talking about life, and being with the humans we love most.
