Kind Words From My Beautiful Clients…

My clients have simply just been absolutely amazing, and I am so blessed to have been able to work with these beautiful people. I have got to know each and every one of them and it’s such a good feeling to be immersed in their story as their photographer.

Carley is the ultimate photo ninja/genius! Incredibly well priced, speedy turnaround (less than 3 weeks after the wedding) and truly beautiful photos. There was a great mix of candid, posed, fun and romantic, which is exactly what we wanted. Carley gave us some direction throughout the day, but mostly she just captured heartfelt moments, so that the final product is a true (but well-lit) reflection of a wonderful day. Cannot recommend Carley enough. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Carley was an absolute dream to work with right from the beginning. We had a small intimate ceremony on a rainy day, but Carley effortlessly captured the magic of the day, turning drizzle into dramatic. She was prepared with umbrellas, and as two people who don’t automatically feel comfortable posing in front of a camera, she made us feel comfortable and we laughed the whole time, and that was definitely captured in the candid photos! She captured some gorgeous portraits of our families, and managed to capture the joy we both felt on the day. She got some gorgeous candid photos of our ceremony, and seemed to capture every single important moment; I don’t know how, as she almost seemed to be in two places at once yet blended into the background.
We didn’t want typical ‘posed’ photos, but rather natural candid ones that encompassed the beautiful gardens we were in, and Carley nailed it.

She sent some edited photos the following day, and we actually gasped out loud when we saw them. The full album that came a few weeks later was equally breath-taking. Everyone says how in love we look in our photos.

Carley was a total delight and helped us create beautiful memories from our special day. Thanks again!

We feel so fortunate to have had Carley as our photographer on our wedding day (6/5/2017). Put simply, she is a brilliant, talented, and creative photographer! We love the way in which she captures light, captures natural and intimate moments, and furthermore, how clever she is with compositions. Our memories of the special day are greatly enhanced and certainly enriched by the wonderful photos that Carley took – and not a precious moment was missed!! We highly recommend Carley Payne Photography. She is very professional and a great communicator. This gave us every confidence that everything would go well on the day. To her credit also, she handled quite a large bridal group (14 people!) with diligence and made it all look easy. Our expectations were definitely exceeded and the presentation of the photos on USB was both timely and beautiful. It was our pleasure to share the day and evening with Carley. Her easy-going, friendly, and fun personality added to the whole experience and we really enjoyed the photo shoots. We are delighted with our amazing photos, so many fantastic memories, and say THANK YOU!!! again Carley for such an exceptional job that you did. ???? Amanda and Paul

The ultimate professional, Carley has been an exceptional communicator and has handled the ultimate Bridezilla with total calmness! Thank you Carley, we were 100% confident in our choice of photographer from the second we met you, and grateful we followed that instinct. You worked under difficult circumstances (no light, hail, flooding,4 kids under 4 and a very stressed bride) and I know you have captured everything we wish to remember. Thank you xx

Carley made my wedding day perfect. She kept in contact with me the months leading up to the day and kept me calm and laughing during the rainy morning. I have had so many people compliment how lovely and professional she was. Thank you Carley.

Great value wedding photography!! Professional yet friendly and will hang around until the wedding is over rather than when her allocated hours are up. Also very quick with getting your wedding snaps back to you

From our first conversation I knew Carley would be our wedding photographer, she really understood what my husband and I were wanting. She captured my wedding perfectly with lots of candid images from the day and the pictures I had in my mind from our location, she got spot on! She was easy to work with, friendly and delivered her work beautifully. I have very treasured memories to keep forever and I’d definitely recommend Carley.

Carley, you know how appreciative we were of you and we can’t thank you enough for all that you did. Kind of sad it’s over now because it’s like we’re losing a friend haha. Your positive attitude is such an asset and we couldn’t have asked for anybody better!
