Thank you for your interest in my wedding photography!
Hey Lovebirds - I am Carmen and I am a NW Indiana and Chicago Wedding Photographer. Congratulations on your engagement! I know this time in your life is exciting and overwhelming at the same time!! I believe in LOVE - that's why I absolutely love photographing engagements and weddings. I specialize in doing small and intimate weddings. I blend photo journalistic storytelling by capturing a mix of spontaneous moments, fine detail imagery, and artistic portraiture. Although I capture the day as it unfolds, my brides often look to me for guidance. I am laid back, easy going and have a great sense of humor. On the other hand, I also know how to get things done and take charge if necessary.
Having photographed over well 100 weddings, I have a lot of experience and can help you make awkward moments feel less awkward. I love capturing real moments and want to photograph couples who are all about each other and make photography a priority for their wedding day! At the end of the day, I want you to have amazing images you can look back on for years to come and relive those happy moments. I hope that as you look through my wedding galleries, you can see my aesthetic. I want to make it all about YOUR own LOVE STORY.
I only book 10 wedding per year (including weddings with Jamie/Tales of a Dream). Since I am booked out very quickly, contact me as soon as you know your wedding date to see if I am available. I am very interested to shoot barn weddings or non traditional weddings. Click HERE so view a slideshow of one of my favorite intimate weddings.
Every wedding is custom and so is my pricing. Just to give you an idea, prices usually start at $1,700 for up to 5 hours of coverage for small weddings.
Please go to my other website www.talesofadream.com if you are planning a large wedding which requires 2 photographers. Coverage starts at $2,600.
