Client Testimonials

Groom whispering in bride's ear while she's laughing with arm around him outside at Bull Valley Golf Club in Woodstock..

“Carey photographed my wedding and we couldn't have been more happy with the beautiful photos he took! One of the nicest, creative, artistic, and friendly people that we were blessed to work with for our wedding. 100% recommend Carey for his incredible photography!! Thank you so much!”

“Thank you again for everything!! The pictures turned out beautiful! And we loved having you as our photographer! My bridesmaids kept coming up to me saying how awesome you were! It was a pleasure working with you!”

Bride and groom embracing while standing in a snow coverd path in a canopy of trees at Montrose Beach in Chicago, IL.

“Carey captured our vision for the day and was true to our story. He ventured through a foot of snow to photograph us in our spot!! We have that photo hanging on our wall and receive compliments till this day. Carey's talent is undeniable and dedication to his couples evident, but don't just listen to me check out his work, it speaks for itself!”
