Does an amazing job making you feel comfortable.  So many of us are not used to being in front of the camera and Carri makes it easy. Her studio is in a perfect spot in Tryon and so close to ideal locations for outside pictures.

2019 Excellence Award - Tryon Downtown Development Association
We hired Carri for professional headshots for a large number of business students.  Carri easily managed it—so easy + convenient!  Many young women are so self-critical of their photos, but never before have I seen such happy, surprised faces or heard such satisfied remarks.  Beautiful! Carri puts people at ease with her easy-going, cheerful personality.  Her turnaround time to retouch photos is incredibly prompt. The results are simply stunning.
Hannah Terpack, USC Upstate -
Most photographers focus on professional shoots, or the beauty of nature. Carri is a rare exception–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.
Rob Keating - Author and artist
An artistic gift for seeing things others miss, technically sound + instantly sets others at ease. Endless patience when photographing children + people who do not normally enjoy being photographed. These skills create perfect, memorable photos of weddings, family portraits, children + even landscapes. I recommend her to anyone without hesitation. She is simply the best.
Charlie Bass - Children and family portraits
Not only is she beautiful herself, she does beautiful work.
Steve Rosenberg, Saiga Custom -
A wonderful photographer.  As a business professional always returned phone calls and emails on time and showed up early… would recommend her for any work…
Very Happy Groom, Greenville -
Carri get a smile out of my “too cool for school” kid AND she got him to come out of his shell + talk, laugh + have fun. I warned her he was going to be tough–smiling for the camera isn’t “cool”.  Carri laughed, said “I’ve got this”.  Boy, did she ever. I let her work her magic + after seeing the proofs, I was  beyond happy.  Thank you, Carri, for this milestone in our son’s life. We look forward to future memories with you.
The Davis Family -
Carri is a gem, and I cannot say enough good things about her.  We have hired her for multiple photo shoots, indoors and outside, business and personal. The results are always beautiful.  She is a pleasure to work with!
