About Carley

Hey, I’m Carley (she/her)!

I’m an Ottawa wedding photographer. But more than that, I’m a homebody at heart and a jeans-and-a-tee kinda girl. I like kind-hearted people with infectious personalities and laughs that come from their toes. I like my music too loud in the car, and my apartment neat and tidy. I am obsessed with sunsets. And I cry at way too many weddings.

I love home decor and could spend hours perusing pinterest for home and styling inspiration. I am obsessed with pizza. And I’m a roll with the punches, go with the flow kind of gal (this comes in handy on wedding days lol).

I believe in surrounding yourself with positive people and doing what you love. For me, that’s photography. I love the way a photo not only captures a moment in time, but it also captures the emotions and the feelings. I love watching people interact and I am constantly looking for the quiet moments; the real life stuff, the emotion and the feelings and the beauty. I love capturing authentic moments and I am mesmerized by the way photographs tell a story.

Random Facts

Erin Brockovich is my favourite movie of all time. I love simplicity, and quiet, and easy Sunday mornings. I like to play golf. I’m always cold. I travelled to Ireland in 2015 and I desperately want to go back. I hate grocery shopping. I have an education degree. I always eat my pizza with a knife and fork. My laugh is more like a cackle, I got it from my mom and I wouldn’t be me without it. I’m the kind of person that needs 8 hours of sleep a night. I don’t drink anything carbonated. I’m fascinated by true crime, give me all the documentaries and podcasts (even though they give me nightmares). Celine Dion’s Christmas album is the best ever. I eat chocolate basically every day. I wear birkenstocks all summer long. And fresh air is good for my soul.
