Carissa Woo was the most amazing wedding photographer. She made me feel comfortable and excited about my wedding from the very start. I felt like we could be best friends. Carissa made sure to take photos of the details and captured moments that I wouldn't have remembered if she wasn't there. Every picture she took was breathtaking and you felt you could not live without that photo. Carissa loves what she does and it is evident in the way she interacts with the bride and groom and their families and friends. Our relatives are still talking about the way she made everyone feel and were in awe when they saw the photos of the wedding. She made the photo taking fun, interactive and produced a beautiful product. Carissa is the best photographer, ever! We would absolutely recommend her to all of our closest family and friends.

Yowza! Carissa Woo was a blast to work with and was able to bring out the best in us during our wedding! She was able to get the best shots, where nothing looks rehearsed or forced but instead natural and happy. Her creativity and calmness helped tremendously throughout the day and the end result were the fantastic photos we'll cherish for the rest of our lives and make our Facebook profile pitcures! Having never had a photographer follow you around before, it definitely felt more like a friend capturing our most heart felt moments while also encouraging a showcase of love. All in all, we're ecstatic we found and glad we chose Carissa as our wedding photographer! We would absolutely recommend her to friends and family.

P.S. She also shot our engagement photos which also turned out spectacular as well!

If you want the best of the best, you HAVE to book Carissa! A friend recommended Carissa to take our wedding photos, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Not only did the photos blow our minds, but she is the most down to earth photographer I have ever met. She knew exactly how to handle my family's unique needs when it came to the group photos as well. My grandma is 98 and can't stand for long periods at a time. Carissa made sure to take her photos first so she wasn't standing around waiting and in pain. Kudos Carissa! I love this girl!!!

I used Carissa for my engagement shoot as well as my wedding and I'm so glad I did.

She made us feel very comfortable because her style is natural and organic. And sometimes she'll be silly just to get a laugh out of us (and those made the best shots!).

My biggest fear for a wedding photographer was one who takes center stage and obstructs the guests' view. Carissa and her team were not like that at all, in fact I don't know how they got the amazing shots they did because they were so inconspicuous.

And the follow up after our engagement shoot and wedding was outstanding. She provided us with our images and album within the time she promised and she even sent us a personalized pillow along with a hand written note! While Carissa's professionalism and her eye for capturing that perfect shot makes her a great photographer, the attention to detail and her warm personality really put her over the top for me. I highly recommend Carissa.

Carissa is an excellent photographer and one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. I needed someone who would lead the day in the hustle and bustle of wedding chaos. She took charge and made sure we stayed on schedule and took all the photos we wanted.

Carissa is professional, responds timely to emails and inquiries and was truly a pleasure to work with. The photos we have seen so far are absolutely gorgeous. I am so happy we spent the extra money to invest in such a good photographer because those photos are all that we have once the day is over.

Thank you Carissa. I can't wait to use you again!

Carissa Woo is wonderful. She is quick, efficient, & super nice! Our engagement shoot was absolutely perfect. We almost got in trouble by some security guard and she managed to sweet talk her way out of it, so if you want a certain shot she will get it. She is bubbly and makes you feel really comfortable in front of her lens. She gave great direction and really captured what my husband and I really feel for each other. For our wedding day it happened to be the hottest day of the year. Literally it was like 110 degrees. It was pretty horrible and nobody was in the best of moods with that kind of heat. We all were troopers and got through it. Now that I have my photos back I can tell you that we look freaking amazing! I thought I would be disappointed with how melted we all felt, but I am so glad that it did not translate into the pictures. I will say that looking back I wish I had a few pictures that we didn’t attempt such as my husband and his sister by themselves or just me on my own, but it was just too hot to think so I blame no one but the sun. I also used her for my photo booth. Her photo booth company is called Heart You Photo Booth and it is an open air one so lots of people fit in the shot. Everyone had a blast! Her backdrop was gorgeous and her props were lots of fun! I received the pictures in the online gallery a few weeks after and she even posted a picture a couple days after the wedding for us to share with our friends and family via social media. It was a magical day and Carissa and her assistants stopped time with our love. I would recommend her to everyone because of her talent and efficiency. I gave my wedding party a pep talk before we took photos and I told them to pay attention to her direction because she’s fast. You will think she didn’t get the shot, but I promise you she did. It was true! She was super-fast, but got every shot right. My photos are beautiful and I am really glad we found her. She truly is in love with love <3

My husband and I met with too many photographers before we picked Carissa Woo Photography. Carissa fit our budget and we clicked with her more than anyone else. She was able to give us a discount for working with Ace the Day and she made the perfect package for our needs and wants. When we explained our “modern with a vintage flair” military wedding, Carissa loved it! Our engagement shoot was a blast! For the first part, my husband wore an older military uniform, and I found a cute vintage dress. We also had his tuba and a handful of books for different props. Our pictures were a mix of fun, spontaneous, romantic and even a few artistic shots. During our wedding day, Carissa was there from getting ready to almost the end. While we were doing our romantic and wedding party pictures, her assistant was getting pictures of everyone at cocktail hour. It was wonderful to see everyone having a good time. Choosing a photographer was very much a personality and budget decision for us. I’m very happy with our decision.

We are so happy with our wedding pictures from Carissa! She was great at giving directions while keeping it super chill, which is exactly what we wanted. She sent links to the digital pics within days which was shockingly fast, and the dvd with the images followed shortly after. Great experience, thanks so much Carissa!
