I ASKED MY BRIDES....
I believe this is the beginning of something good!
I'm a photographer, but I'm also a teacher, wife, mom, sister and someone who truly believes God has given me this opportunity because it allows me to use my creative gift and passion to serve others! I truly believe your wedding photography is done best when you have a relationship with your photographer and fully trust them. This is how I guarantee and deliver an incredible photography experiences to my SP Couples! When I arrive on your wedding day, I want you to feel like an old friend arrived, not a stranger. This will affect every aspect of how your photos turn out! Keep reading to learn more!
We valued your ability to make us feel comfortable throughout everything, from the engagement photos to the wedding day. We were always worried that we would look awkward, but you hyped us up and made us laugh all the time! You were able to capture every single moment of our big day, even the small details. When I came into the house during the reception and you were already editing photos says enough! I could tell that you absolutely love what you do and just having a photographer that made taking photos for hours so easy was a plus! And the little gifts you give before and after the wedding were awesome too! You had everything under control and knew how to direct people in the right direction when it comes to photography. I would tell anyone on the fence to BOOK NOW before someone else does! We appreciated everything.

Having Stargazer Photo and Video was the best decision I made for my wedding. The photos are amazing from the engagement session and wedding. I also really appreciated the planning and help Carianne offered. It was priceless. Then the cherry on top is the beautiful personalities this team has that make you feel so comfortable.

We can not say enough how thankful we are for these two PHENOMENAL photographers! They went above and beyond from the first day we met them and even AFTER the wedding!! Their organization skills were by far the best I've seen, which made our day so much easier. Their love and creativity truly show through their hard work and Carianne will surely keep your heart full of joy as her passion overflows, while capturing your precious memories. I would highly recommend them for your wedding, prom, maternity, engagement, family portraits, anything! Their work is amazing and we love all our pictures, seriously can't pick a favorite!

I couldn’t say enough good things about the people behind the camera of Stargazer photography & video! They did our engagement & wedding photography and were super sweet, helpful, & professional! I am so pleased with the quality, timing, & overall work I received. The pair definitely make you feel comfortable and are so accommodating, love these two. I wouldn’t hesitate to book with them for your next event!

I would absolutely recommend Carianne if you are looking for a photographer who is passionate about her job, attentive to your needs, & makes you feel extremely comfortable. She is so organized and on top of everything. She pays attention to the big and small details. It was honestly like having a second day-of coordinator. She not only takes amazing pictures, but she also has an amazing energy that makes the whole experience exciting! If you love to laugh and feel joy, I would not miss booking with Carianne. My husband and I will cherish these photos for a lifetime.
"SHE HAS AN AMAZING ENERGY THAT MAKES THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE EXCITING!"

The first step is making sure I am a great fit for you! It is just as important for you to love your photographer as it is their work. We will schedule a video chat or phone call, where we can get to know each other. I want to hear your vision for your special day and answer any questions you may have!
Let's Get To Know Each Other!
After you have signed the contract and a deposit has been paid, we can start planning your ENGAGEMENT SESSION! This is the best way for us to get to know each other. This is where I teach you my posing system and how I shoot, so your wedding day will be a breeze!
Wedding Photography Timeline
One month before the big day, you will receive a wedding questionnaire to help me learn about the details of the day. This will include going over your wedding timeline, so we can ensure every portrait has a set time and place. I typically piece together a timeline for my brides to help them out! We will also put together your family shot list so no one is forgotten and we get them done fast.
Your Wedding Day
The day we’ve all been waiting for is finally here! I will be with you from getting ready until the party dancing gets underway. My job is to capture all the special moments and offer whatever moral support you need. Your job is to soak it all in. My goal is to tell your story in a way that reflects everything about who you are. I create images you can FEEL when you look at them because your photographs should help you remember what it felt like on your wedding day, not just how it looked!
I am known for a FAST turnaround time. My full wedding galleries consisting of an average of 900 images or more, are delivered to you within three weeks of your wedding day. I deliver the high resolution images through an online gallery system where you can download, print, and share as much as you would like.
For a traditional wedding day, I need a minimum of 8 hours to capture the full story of your day and so you won't feel rushed. Coverage begins with bridal details and finishing touches of hair and makeup and continues until the dance party is underway.
Since I limit the number of weddings I book each year I am able to deliver your full gallery within 2-3 weeks! Printing is easy through your online gallery, but you are free to print wherever you choose. Albums are available for purchase upon request.
I use top of the line Canon gear. Here's what's in my bag:
* Canon R6 mirrorless camera body
* 100 mm macro lens (For ring shots and details)
* 28-70 mm zoom lens (My baby. It's on my camera almost the entire day)
* 85 mm prime lens (My go-to portrait lens, it's amaaaazzzziiing)
* 70-200 mm zoom lens (I don't use it often, but when I need to be far away, this guy gets the job done)
* I use 3 off-camera flashes to ensure bright, clean reception images
The engagement session is my free gift to you, it has no monetary value and therefore cannot be swapped or exchanged. The engagement is what allows us to get to know each other. When I arrive on your wedding day I feel more like a friend, not just someone you hired. The engagement session also makes a HUGE difference in how your wedding day portraits flow. I will already know how the two of you interact and which poses work best for you.
Abso-frickin-lutely!! PLEASE take me on an adventure with you! I will travel to the ends of the earth with you. Where are we going?
Because you WANT to!! Let’s face it, you are going to be with your photographer ALL DAY. This means you need to actually LIKE them, trust them, and know that they are someone you would love being around! I guarantee there are other photographers with a similar style as mine, who may even be in the same price range, so what makes me different? ME! No one else can be me, or provide the signature experience I provide my clients. So, if you think you’d like hanging out with me (I am pretty fun) and you want a dynamic experience, then let’s be friends!
