let's capture your love story

I'm Carrie Patricia Arnold, a natural light photographer capturing timeless photos of the special, candid, and joyful moments celebrating love SINCE 2010.

welcome

Hello!

  First and foremost, I believe in love, in all shapes, sizes, and forms. And I believe that love should be documented! For you, for your family, and for your future generations (check out these amazing photos I found in my great grandma's attic). Whether we're photographing the biggest day of your life, or just a simple family session, I strive to capture your love and joy through my photojournalistic style, so when you look back on those photos, you'll remember the real emotions that made the moment so special.

While studying music at college in my hometown of St. Paul, Minnesota, I bought myself a fancy camera. After lots of reading, some experimenting, and playing around with editing software, I photographed my first wedding in 2010. Now I'm photographing 30 weddings per year and couldn't be happier! (Photographing love is so much more satisfying than trying to make a 5 year old sit still on a piano bench.)

As a natural light photographer, I do not have an indoor studio. I find all my beautiful backgrounds outside.

More and more couples are deciding to ditch tradition to see each other before the ceremony, also known as a "first look"...

e-session awesome

I know it's crazy, but your engagement session doesn't have to be just another thing to check off your wedding to-do list...
