We used Carter for headshots of our company staff as well as product photography. He was extremely professional and the quality of his work was beautiful. He has a great eye and knows how to capture people and product with an editorial eye. Highly recommend.

Nothing but good things to say about our engagement photos with Carter! He was friendly and made us feel at ease right away, and we had a great time shooting in different spots around a park. He gave us suggestions for how to pose but also had us pick what we wanted to do, so we got a great mix of photos. He was also super responsive when I reached out to schedule a session and sent us our photos back absurdly fast! We had a hard time picking the ones we like because they’re all fantastic - he’s obviously good at what he does and made us look our best selves. Cannot recommend him enough and everyone I’ve shown our photos to thinks they look awesome, too. thanks Carter!!

I feel very fortunate to have Carter behind the lens in any scenario. His work is beautiful and honest, always. Carter’s ability to capture a moment so perfectly, from such insightful perspectives, and with such a pleasant and subtle presence is unrivaled, and a talent most other photographers never master.
