Hi, I'm Cari!

I'm a traveling wedding, portrait, and editorial photographer, based in Tennessee. 

My love for storytelling was fostered in my childhood backyard growing up, and has bloomed into a lifetime pursuit of honest joy. If you're looking for a photographer to capture the tiniest of details, candid in-between moments that stitch together a seamless story, and an abundance of tender feelings - - pick me! I’m in the portrait business because I just love people, and helping others feel accepted, heard, treasured, and celebrated is what my life’s work is about.

I have the joy of making new friends and pursuing stories all over the country. Last year I got to work with National Geographic on a regional project, Validity Magazine, Our Jackson Home Magazine, and so many couples and families all over my half of the country. This year, my husband Rob and I took a month off work and ran around the world together. It was a year of dreams for me and this small business.

Rob is my safe space and he's often by my side on wedding days, snapping polaroids, second shooting, and reminding me to eat something. Being in love makes photographing love SO much more rewarding. We live in a very tiny house in a sweet small city and spend most of our time watching movies, growing vegetables, playing music, eating delicious food, or trying to figure out a way to travel more. I’m always hungry, he’s pretty content - We’re both usually always ready for a nap, and we play a lottt of Mario Kart. It’s a good life we’re living.

I think it’s incredibly important to appreciate someone’s work, but more than that, I think you should actually enjoy being around your photographer! So that’s a little bit of my story, and I’d love to hear yours! Take a look around my website, and if you think we're a good fit, send me an email or head on over to the Booking tab and let's get to know each other!

No story is too small and no place is too far away.
