Larry Smith and Melissa Carnes - A Father/Daughter Photography Team
Capturing the love on your wedding day is our passion. It is our goal to preserve one of the most important moments in your lives. We want you to feel comfortable and relaxed so that the images taken that day will show the celebration in both of your hearts. We do this by adapting to each of our clients needs and wants. After all, it is your special day.
When a couple is comfortable and relaxed, it shows both on their facial expression and body language. This is why it is important for us to bring out each clients personality in order to capture their unique charm.
For some, being photographed in front of a camera can be a real nerve-racking experience, especially if it's your first time. This is why we recommend our couples to schedule an engagement session with us. An engagement session allows you to become comfortable and use to being in front of a camera before your big day. It also lets us get to know each other on a more personal level, making the photo session a more enjoyable experience for you.
Melissa graduated from California State University Fullerton with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography.
We have been professionally photographing weddings since 2005, and have over 20 years of experience in photography.
