Hi There, I’m Carla!
GET TO KNOW ME

Hey, I’m Carla! I grew up in between the mighty mountains of Cape Town, South Africa and have recently come to call Melbourne home. I've been photographing all sorts of things for the last fews years and there's no doubt that documenting love stories is my favourite.

Other than that, I'm a big fan of eating real good food with real good company, binge watching all the documentaries I can find on anything and everything, and I spend my free time scribbling away in a notebook. I'm very recently married my very best friend who is never short of dad joke and always willing to make me pasta (keeper, I know).

How I Work

I like for us to feel more like old pals and less like you're a client. I promise that when it comes to shooting weddings, I'm always celebrating with you from behind my camera. I still shed a few tears at almost every wedding I shoot (guys it's embarrassing). Let's face it, it's big - you're starting a new life. And celebrating an old one. Photographing you at the happiest you've ever been means the world to me and is the kind of job that's impossible to take for granted. Standing beside strangers who become friends, whose life you get to cheer on from that day forward is the freaking best.

I'm all about those raw and real moments. Moments, moments, moments over stiff and forced posing. All while acknowledging that you're a regular human being and that being in front of a camera isn't the most natural thing. I can be super camera-shy too, so I get it. I'll guide you into positions, give you things to do so that things feel a little more normal. We'll laugh and chase some golden light and you'll see that I'm not so bad as a third wheel!

A FEW KIND WORDS

FROM SOME REAL SWEET CLIENTS

We both valued your professionalism, willingness to celebrate our vision of the day and the balance you strike between a classic and trendy style. The other thing is that we were very impressed with how many images we received from you and how many of those were beautiful/“usable” - we felt spoilt for choice when it came to putting together albums etc. This was a pleasant surprise.
Oh and we love how you presented our images to us (the sneak peek and then the beautiful parcel). Those added details ended the whole experience on an extra special note.

All I can say is WOOOOW! I literally have no words! I shed a few tears as well. They are simply ammmaaaaziiing!! Thank you so much for capturing every moment of our day.
When we were initially looking for a photographer, we were looking for someone who captures moments. And you have certainly done that and we cannot thank you enough.
You are not just talented, you are gifted so keep using your gift to bring smiles and happy tears to many more faces.
THANK YOU!
