hello. I'm CARA MARIE.

Hello There! I'm Cara. I love to create through many different mediums but especially through photography. 

A few simple things you should know about me: first and foremost, I am a wife, sister, daughter, photographer, and friend. I spend my free time volunteering at church, exploring new places, and spending time with family and friends.  

My photography style focuses on capturing the authentic moments of your wedding day. My goal is to capture photographs that are a true reflection of your unique relationship together. When you look back on your photos, I want them to feel real and to feel like YOU. I care about every one of my couples, and I want to be there through every amazing moment with you. 

Meet me.
