ABOUT CARISSA

MY WHY

BEHIND THE LENS

I've always loved the arts and knew growing up that I wanted to do something artistic, I just didn't know what! I used to take pictures all the time as a kid, but never considered it something I could do as my profession. In fact, I originally began college at Indiana Wesleyan University pursuing a degree in Graphic Design. I ended up switching majors to Photography half way through, after shooting my very first wedding with a fellow art major! I spent the following summer doing a photography internship and second shooting weddings. I fell in love with the privilege of documenting such a unique, beautiful, and monumental day in lives of each couple! I then started my business in 2010 upon graduating with a BFA in Photography. After 8 years and 75+ weddings, I'm still living my dream and beyond thankful to be doing what I love!!
