You're a

Modern Romantic

You are marrying your best friend, the love of your life, the Marshall to your Lily, the JayZ to your Beyoncé, the Blake Lively to your Ryan Reynolds, you know the one you can't live without, and at the end of the day if it means rain on your big day, things are running 10 minutes late, or the wind blowing your veil all over the place during the ceremony, it doesn't matter because you realize life is imperfectly perfect, you two know this is about something bigger, this is about the two of you and the people you love and the memories you are creating laughing, toasting and tearing up over this love and forever.

Covid 19 + Your Wedding


Alex and Erin


Cari captured our wedding better than we could have imagined. My husband and I had her for an engagement shoot, and we fell in love with her personality and work. She made us feel comfortable, laughing and loving. We forgot she was even there by the end! On our wedding day, she did it again but with our families and friends too. She worked her magic. She gave us the best gift ever--a documentary of our special day surrounded by those we love so much. We are so lucky to have had her.


There are not enough words to express how amazing and brilliant Cari is. She is a true artist. Professional and a friend, it is clear that Cari is passionate and has a deep care for her clients and for photography. She has truly found her calling. We consider Cari a friend and we recommend Cari to everyone we can. Cari has captured our wedding day beautifully and we know that we are going to have amazing memories to look back on via photos forever. Thank you Cari for being there for us and for capturing our love and those moments. We appreciate you so much!

Cari is the best! I'm not sure where to even start describing how wonderful she is, both as a person and a photographer. My husband and I had our wedding reception at a hotel in downtown Sacramento. Cari was there with us through most of the day and found some incredible hidden spots for photos, which turned out amazing. She was also extremely patient and flexible when it came to taking group photos with family, friends, etc., and she took amazing pictures of the actual event (those are my favorite)...On top of all that, she is such a sweet and caring person, and was super quick with getting our finalized pictures back to us. If you are in need of a photographer for any occasion, Cari is your girl. She won't disappoint!
