I'm Carla and I'm so glad you're here! I’m a wedding & lifestyle photographer based out of Sheboygan, Wisconsin (but love to travel!) with an enthusiasm for fall weather, cheesy sitcoms and big laughs. After achieving a degree and working in the graphic design business for 10 years, I decided to switch it up to become a stay at home mom and focus on my photography business.
I started this beautiful journey almost 10 years ago and have been in the wedding industry for 9 of those years. I've been blessed enough to have many of my clients and fellow vendors become close friends, all because I had people believe and trust in me to capture their special moments when I barely had a clue how to use my camera. Because of that reason, I make it my goal to brighten my client's day and to be able to fill the walls of their home with memories that will bring emotion and joy. Hearing how much your clients love their images is truly a feeling that is unlike any other!

MILD OBSESSION WITH THE SHOW 'FRIENDS'
You read that right. I've basically known Brandon since I was 5. We graduated together in a class of less than 100 students, worked together at the same small town grocery store, and had lots of mutual friends but didn't pursue each other until 13 years after we met! We got married in 2013 on a beautiful September day and it's been one heck of an amazing ride ever since!
I've been lucky enough to be in the wedding industry for over 9 years and I truly can't get over how lucky I am to be able to call this my job! It's a job that carries an insane amount of responsibility, but it is OH SO REWARDING! I've photographed over 60 weddings and only take on 10-11 weddings every year to ensure the best experience for my couples!
My husband and I are lucky enough to be called mom & dad by these two goobers. Lane is the sassiest, most hilarious, football loving 5 year old who literally has the personality and vocabulary of a 10 year old. He's the kind of kid who makes us hold our breath with what he's going to say next! Berkley has the easy going personality and is the sweetest, most cuddly girl with a sensitive little heart and the most ridiculous laugh you've ever heard!
No matter how many times I try acting all cute in front of the camera for any behind the scene shots or even updating my headshots, I just become a hot mess! So any of my clients who say they're awkward in front of the camera, I hear you loud and clear! I make it my job to help you so you don't feel that way! If anything, I just join in on the awkwardness with you!
While planning our wedding, we decided to get a lab puppy amid the chaotic planning process. At the time, I don't know what we were thinking trying to plan everything while potty training a puppy. Now? I couldn't imagine my life without him! He's an 8 year old who still acts like a 6 month old and keeps us on our toes, but he's the best cuddle buddy there is!
