Get To Know Me
I’m Carissa and I’m an adventurous wedding and elopement photographer based out of Denver Colorado. I have been a photographer for 4 years now, and am somehow lucky enough to have the opportunity to capture love stories for a living.
I’m also a human that is obsessed with travel and exploring new places. I love packing my bags and exploring the world, with the wind in my hair, having absolutely zero plans, camping under the stars, and the smell of fresh mountain air (you know that smell). If your fueled by wanderlust and crave adventure and the unknown then we will be best friends in no time.
My favorite things in life besides photography are the ocean, my boyfriend and snowboarding (even though I kinda suck). I crave the ocean like I crave chocolate, and definitely feel happiest in the water with salt in my hair and sunburnt skin.
I’m dating my best friend in the entire world, and am somehow lucky enough to get to experience life with the person that means everything to me. I love love, but more importantly I love capturing it.
A relationship is more than just those stiff fake smiles, and awkward poses. It’s a collection of messy moments, weird moments, and the moments when no one else is looking. It’s the inside jokes, the teasing, the sweet forehead kisses. It’s that feeling you get deep down inside and the lump in your throat when he smiles with that goofy smile.
Thats what I want to capture, because that’s the real you. Those are the moments that you’ll look back on and remember exactly how you felt when he whispered something silly in your ear, or pulled you tight into his arms. I want your wedding photos to be about more than just the fancy surface stuff. I want to create pictures that make you feel something, and make your heart beat faster.
