what couples are saying

Cara goes above and beyond for her clients by being reliable, kind, and attentive. She takes care of all the details, so that she is prepared for a smooth and seamless day. Not only is she efficient and attentive she is also so easy to get along with. When you hire Cara, plan on becoming her friend. I had no idea what I was doing when planning my wedding and she jumped right in to help me plan. You can tell how happy she is to help and how knowledgeable she is about weddings. She was very accommodating to our nontraditional wedding plans and was prepared for anything. 

She made our wedding photos comfortable and fun! She directs you the whole time and it's so easy to follow and makes sure you enjoy your time in front of the camera too! Her editing style is stunning. Every time I look at my gallery it's like reliving my wedding day. Hire Cara! You will not regret it. Whether you are having a traditional wedding or eloping she would love to help you plan your day! Thank you Cara Marie Photography!

I truly cannot say enough amazing things about Cara herself and the integrity of her work. From the moment we reached out to her we were hooked by the instant connection. We did not expect this when looking for vendors but Cara has a way of not only making you feel special in front of the camera, but really FEELING that she is capturing the true essence of your love and the photography experience with her had me and my husband feeling like there was no one else around. I never thought I could feel like that in front of a camera but it was like a fairytale. She also has a way of making you not feel like just “one of many” clients. You can tell every session is special to her and her shooters. Our wedding day was captured so perfectly and looked effortlessly beautiful with the way she photographed. Everyone who has seen our photos has said how wonderful a job she did. I would recommend Cara and any of her additional team members who support her business to ANYONE. Her genuine spirit shines through in her work and her talent is second to none. 10 out of 5 stars for Cara Marie Photography.

We chose Cara as our wedding photographer based on her portfolio aesthetic and are so happy we did! From our first Zoom call meeting, we could tell she was genuinely invested in learning about us as a couple and truly excited about capturing our story.

My fiancé and I weren't expecting to have an engagement session since we live on the west coast and our wedding is in PA, but Cara stopped by San Francisco last fall just to photograph us on one of our favorite hikes. Despite our crazy puppy, tons of tourists, and splashing waves,

Cara was a true professional -- she made us feel at ease and captured the most beautiful, natural photos. We truly enjoyed working with her and can't wait for our wedding!

Cara Marie Photography took pictures for my fiancé and I on a snowy day in November. It was pretty chilly and the snow *coming down* but the pictures all turned out amazing.

Cara had so many great ideas of different styles for the pictures and also let us do anything we wanted as well. There was never a dull moment in our hour and a half together, that’s for sure! Cara also suggested the location. It is a place we would have never chosen on our own but turned out to be perfect.

The cherry on top, you ask? She provided us with soooo many photos that we will cherish for years to come! We can’t thank you enough, Cara!
