Kind Words

Carly was magical—really. Carly took the time to find out what kinds of photos I was really interested in, what role I saw the photos playing, and actually listened to me! She was everywhere taking ALL THE PHOTOS, and did an amazing job capturing the vibe of my wedding, and took the photos she knew my husband and I would be most excited to have. She somehow made that parade of family-reunion style phots fun, and quick, and DONE, leaving more time to get the photos that really mattered to us. We had sneak peak photos within a week, and our full wedding photos within a month, beautifully edited and unique—she doesn’t send a million shots of the same scene just because they all turned out, we had such amazing variety capturing all of the day! Carly is great, super responsive, and a talented photographer. I cannot recommend her enough!

Carly photographed our wedding and we could not be happier with how the pictures turned out! Carly captured all the important moments and her work created such a perfect reflection of our special day. Carly’s talent and ability to make every captured moment look beautiful is incredible and she makes you feel so at ease while she’s shooting. She also did our engagement pictures and it was wonderful to build a rapport with her prior to the big day. Carly is professional, kind, and so talented. She will also be sure to communicate with you throughout the whole process to ensure she understands what you envision and are looking for in your photos. I can’t wait to work with her again. You absolutely won’t regret using Carly Jean Photography for your pictures, whatever your need may be!

Carly photographed our engagements photos last year and our wedding. She was able to capture so many special moments for us on our big day. We took photos before the ceremony, so we ended up with hundreds of usable photos; she had them back to us within 30 days and just in time to use for our Holiday cards. Carly and her assistant were so professional and organized – plus a total blast to work with! Everyone had such a fun day and evening; I don’t even think they took a break! She is amazing and any bride would be lucky to have her for their big day!

I looked far and wide for a wedding photographer in the Bay Area who was reasonably priced for our small, intimate wedding and who shot the kind of photos I was looking for. I’m so glad I finally came across Carly: she was a joy to work with, accommodated my budget and even brought a second shooter along. I’m thrilled with the photos: she captured so many sweet, candid moments during the day, along with lovely family and couples portraits.

Let me first start by saying that Carly was a very professional photographer for our day. She and her assistant did a great job, and captured all of the moments from our momentous day. I would hands down recommend her to anybody! Prior to the wedding, she continuously reached out to us to see what we wanted for our day. Carly was a great photographer and worked well with a “Checklist” of wedding shots after the ceremony with family and the bridal party. The creative aspects of her services were also very positive to where we got some shots we wouldn’t think of taking or putting on a list of the “Must-Get-Shots.” If you are looking for a fun, energetic photographer for your big wedding day, it is recommended that you first look at Carly Jean Photography.

Carly is one of those amazing photographers who just gets it! She has raw, natural talent that creates beautiful memories. She shot my engagement photos and wedding photos as well, and I could not have been happier with how they turned out. She was full of creative ideas and was there to get those candid moments as well. A true professional, Carly Jean is the best choice when looking for a photographer.”

My experience with Carly Jean Photography was hands down the best experience I’ve had with a photographer. Carly made my fiance and I feel at ease, when we both aren’t usually comfortable in front of a camera. Her photographs of us are some of the best we’ve ever had taken of us.

I needed a photographer for my wedding last minute; a friend of mine knew Carly and suggested her to me. Carly got back to me incredibly quickly, was available and quick to get to know me and my ideas for the photos. She is incredibly professional and at the right price. Her work is wonderful. I am so happy that Carly was able to photograph my wedding. I will definitely use her again if I ever need a photographer.

My Husband and have I hired Carly Jean Photography four times so far and would use Carly Jean services again in a minute. We found the service professional, friendly, creative and well-priced for the value. We keep calling on Carly Jean over and over because the results are always the same, wonderful and magical! Carly Jean has an artistic sensitivity that captures the very soul of a person and you can feel the emotion of the moment caught on film forever and we will always cherish our special moments thanks to Carly Jean Photography.
