GET TO KNOW THE PHOTOGRAPHERS

We so excited that you are interested in choosing us to document your wedding! We believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. We believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. 

I began capturing film images of my own daughter, and love the moments it captures. The limited amount of images on a roll of film forced me to put our camera phone down and really observe the beauty in the world, and the people around us. Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them. 

LOVE, Carla

"we can't imagine anyone more perfect"

kind words

As soon as I was engaged the first thing I scheduled was Carla. The experiences she offers her brides are unlike anyone else. We spent hours together even before the big day making sure that everything would be just as I had dreamed it would be. My wedding photos are absolutely beautiful and Carla Lawrence Photography went above and beyond my expectations to make that happen. I now have so many captured memories that I will cherish forever. 

"we can't imagine anyone more perfect"

SHE CAPTURED EVERYTHING FROM OUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION TO THE WEDDING DAY BEAUTIFULLY. NOT ONLY WERE THE PICTURES WONDERFUL, THEY WERE FUN TO MAKE! WE WERE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO CAPTURE THE GENUINE MOMENTS FROM THE DAY, AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT WE GOT PLUS SO MUCH MORE. SO MANY LAUGHS AND SPECIAL MOMENTS WERE SHARED AND WE ARE SO GRATEFUL TO HAVE AMAZING PICTURES TO LOOK BACK ON AND CHERISH FOREVER

LET's CONNECT

After photographing more than a hundred weddings over the past few years, we’ve found that we’re not the perfect fit for every couple. That’s why this process begins with a conversation. We want to hear everything—how you met, funny first date stories, and how y’all got engaged.

We’ll get to know one another, talk about the details of your day, answer any questions you might have about working with us and figure out if we’re the best fit for each other.

Wedding Advice

We're here as a resource beyond photography—whether you're looking for engagement session outfit recommendations, timeline advice, or vendor referrals.

Even if you're working with a wedding planner or you're planning a simple wedding, there are likely still a lot of moving pieces left leading up to your big day. We've photographed more than 150 weddings in the past few years and we're happy to share everything we've learned along the way! 

Engagement Session

We’re big fans of engagement sessions for a few reasons. Not only do they allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera, they also give you the opportunity to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you. 

Engagement sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. We’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos. We normally plan sessions based on a particular “look” a couple has in mind, spring flowers for example, or based on schedules. 

Wedding Day Prep

We check-in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else we should know about your big day. 

While we normally don't send this questionnaire until closer to the wedding, please don't hesitate to let us know if you have questions during the planning process!

The Big Day

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. 

Just know we're excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome.

Photo Delivery

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about three weeks of your wedding. At that time, we'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums. We plan our Preview and Preseco party to get together and relive your beautiful day!

We hope the relationship doesn't end after we deliver your photographs. We want to hear about the adventures of married life. And if you decide to have kids, we'd love to document your growing family.

Engagement Sessions

All of our collections include a complimentary engagement session. It takes time for most couples to warm up to being photographed and understand how we pose. Timelines can be pretty tight on weddings days and 30 minutes may be all we have for portraits - which is why we’ve found that wedding day portraits turn out so much better when couples do engagement sessions ahead of time.

Sessions also allow you to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you (and even include pets!) While they’re great for save-the-dates, we’ve taken engagement photos anywhere from 18 months in advance to a few days before the wedding.

ALBUMS

One of the best ways to make your wedding memories last is by ordering an album. These high quality professionally designed albums come in a variety of linen & leather colors. These aren’t the same albums your parents wedding photos came in. They’re modern, lay perfectly flat and look incredible on coffee tables.

All albums must be prepaid before design begins. Albums typically take between 4 to 6 weeks to complete and include three rounds of revision. Albums may be ordered anytime before or after the wedding day.

We love your work and we’re ready to book! What’s the next step?

Fantastic! To reserve your wedding date, we’ll need a completed contract and a 30% non-refundable deposit. If you don’t have a contract yet, just let us know and we’ll send one over! The remaining balance will be due 2 weeks before the wedding.

How many photos are typically included and can we print the photos ourselves?

Galleries typically include anywhere between 400 and 800 photos. The exact amount varies from wedding to wedding. Your online gallery will come loaded with fullyedited high resolution images you can print anywhere. You’re also welcome to share your wedding photos on Facebook as long as you credit us and link to our website.

When do you charge travel fees?

We typically add travel fees on to any wedding outside of a 60 mile radius from our home in North Alabama. Fees vary depending on location so ask us for more details.

Thank you so much for considering us to be a part of your wedding day! If you’re interested in working with us, the next step is to set up a time to chat! You can reach us directly at cmmphoto@live.com
