    Everything she does is an indication of her artistic ability to create something unique with each photograph. She is a delight to work with as well.
    Narramore Associates, Inc.
  • Does an amazing job of making you feel comfortable for a photoshoot.
    So many of us are not used to being in front of the camera (selfies excluded!) and Carri makes it easy. Her studio is in a perfect spot in Tryon and so close to ideal locations for outside pictures.

  • Always enjoy the exhibits at Carri Bass Studio. Her photography on display is wonderful and her portraiture of brides in unexpected settings is especially warm and evocative. On the fourth Friday of each month her studio showcases 1 or 2 artists with a reception. Plus, Carri is an avid adventure traveler who captures the most interesting images from around the world, well off the beaten path. She is a must follow on social media!

  • Carri is a delight and her work is fantastic!
    Her gift is the way she captures the natural beauty of everyone and everything in her photos.  She provides a relaxed, comfortable experience – no part of which feels forced or staged in any way.
    Her studio is within walking distance of gorgeous mountain scenery, quaint downtown buildings, picturesque railroad tracks and lush green spaces.
    She has helped preserve in a lovely, classic way, some of the most precious moments in the life of our family and we are so grateful for her amazing work.

  • 2019 Excellence Award, Tryon NC

    Tryon Downtown Development Association
  • We hired Carri for professional headshots for a large number of business students.  I was concerned about the scale of the project, but Carri easily managed it.  Each student received her card with website login information in order to select the preferred photo after the sitting—so easy and convenient!  Many people, especially young women, are so self-critical of their photos, but never before have I seen such happy, surprised faces or heard such satisfied remarks.  Even without touch-ups, the raw shots were beautiful! Carri puts people at ease with her easy-going, cheerful personality, and her turnaround time to retouch photos is incredibly prompt. The results are simply stunning.

  • Most photographers focus on professional shoots and others just on the beauty of nature. Carri is a rare exception in that she excels at both. I especially enjoy her artistic photos of nature as she captures vivid colors, abstract lines, and poignant moments of figures in silhouette. Her artistic eye is unlike any other. It’s always a surprise to see what is coming next.
    Rob Keating

  • Carri has an artistic gift for seeing things others miss, she is technically sound, and most importantly, has a personality that instantly sets others at ease. She has endless patience when photographing children and people who do not normally enjoy being photographed. These skills come together to create perfect, memorable photographs of weddings, family portraits, children, and even landscapes. I would recommend her services to anyone without hesitation. She is simply the best.

  • Not only is she beautiful herself, she does beautiful work.

  • A wonderful photographer.  As a business professional I can appreciate…

  • Not only did Carri get a smile out of my “too cool for school” kid, she also got him to come out of his shell and talk, laugh and have fun with a shoot I nearly had to bribe him to do.
    I contacted Carri to do a shoot for graduation announcements. I warned her from the beginning that he was going to be a tough cookie to crack. Like most teenagers, smiling for the camera isn’t “cool”. Carri assured me that she would get a smile out of him. The day of photos, Carri was so wonderful to work with. Being the bonusmom I am, first click of the camera I told Reece to smile. Carri laughed and said “I got this” and boy did she ever. I stayed behind and let her work her magic and make Reece feel more comfortable. After seeing the proofs, I was one proud bonusmom and beyond happy with all of the photos Carri took.  Thank you Carri for capturing this milestone in our son’s life. We look forward to capturing future memories with you.

    Spartanburg, Greenville, Polk County photographers + artists
  • Very friendly and extremely professional.  I’ve recommended Carri to my friends who get married.   Carri photographed my wedding, as well as my engagement photo and bridal portrait. She then attended the reception and took photographs throughout the evening. She prepared our lovely album, and also prepared an album for each set of parents. They were beautiful.
