I'm a fourth generation North Lake Tahoe native with a big, outgoing personality, a love of making people laugh and a bit of flair for the dramatic. After travelling the world running a private photo studio on a cruise line, I've found my happy place in portraits and wedding photography. I pride myself in having an eye for extraordinary detail in the most common of moments and a natural, journalistic style.
- I love to drive. Road trips are the ultimate freedom for me: windows down, music blaring, and hopefully a whole lot of sunshine!
- I absolutely can't live without coffee! I've tried to not have it and it just makes me an extremely grumpy person.
- I've mastered the art of line dancing with a camera in my hands. There are a few songs that require switching my camera around to not make me look even more ridiculous. Thank you, cruise ships!
Favourite Place to Shoot in Lake Tahoe
I love to shoot on Buck's Beach, also known as Speedboat Beach. It's considered a local's spot because it's quite hard to find.
Carly lives in North Lake Tahoe and requires a 60-minute minimum to shoot on the South Side. During winter (approx Dec - Mar), she is unavailable for the South Side.
Pricing starts at $250 USD for a 30-minute vacation shoot
Customer Love for Carly

"Carly was so wonderful to work with! Her bubbly personality and professionalism helped us relaxed during our photo shoot. She can also talk to you a lot about Lake Tahoe (because her family has been around for many generations)." - Supicha
"Carly was such a sweet and bubbly photographer and we connected immediately. She does a great job at making people feel comfortable and relaxed when taking photos. She even got my fiancé to smile throughout the shoot, which is amazing because he is also a photographer and would rather be behind the camera. The photos were more than I could have hoped for! They were beautifully taken and edited." - Ashley
