Photography is my passion. There is no greater joy for me than to capture once in a lifetime moments. Moments that your grand children will be gazing at 50 years from now.

My husband Dave is the love of my life, the second shooter for all of my events and my biggest fan. He is an illustrator by trade and has a great eye for composition.

Together we are honored to record the special moments of each couple's wedding day. Our style is a blend of fine art and photojournalism which produces timeless illustrations that will preserve the memories of your day for years to come.

We tend to fade into the background. That way we are able to record the emotions of the moment as the day unfolds. Our goal in taking any photograph is to capture the essence of each subject in order to showcase their own unique beauty and personality.

Our focus is always to keep things fun and relaxed. Some of the best images are those unscripted moments. We believe when people are truly enjoying themselves it is conveyed through the images and makes for the very best photographs. Read less

Carrie and her husband were absolutely fabulous! As I am approaching my one year anniversary I have been obsessed with looking at our wedding photos. She captured all the emotions of our joyous day - They are so wonderful. The wedding book that they created exceeded my expectations. Dave is a talented designer. It is something I will cherish forever. From our first coffee meeting to the final wedding photo CD, Carrie went above and beyond in customer service. After our wedding we loved Carrie's photos so much we even purchased a mini family photo session - they turned out fantastic as well. I highly recommend Carrie. Excellent quality and price.

Thanks Carrie! Nicole and Danny

Carrie and her husband were awesome to work with on our wedding day! We did bride/groom/bridal party and family pictures between the ceremony and reception and they got through all of the pictures in less than an hour so we didn't keep guests waiting at the reception.

They were friendly and professional at all times and made everyone they were photographing feel very comfortable (they didn't even notice they were being photographed much of the time).

We were also very happy with the finished product--the photos were wonderful and we love the flexibility of having the CD to make prints/books from ourselves. But also loved the mini- photo books that Carrie made as a surprise for us!

Thanks for everything Carrie!

Carrie Miles Photography was everything that we could have hoped for and more. Not only was she purely professional when it came to her photography but she made sure to understand her clients at a personal level without being intrusive. This guaranteed her photos to match and highlight the emotions and feel of any event, i.e. our wedding. Her constant contact and follow up with her clients makes you feel that she is truly invested in what you need and want....and then she goes above and beyond your wants and gives you your dreams. We were extremely pleased with Carrie Miles Photography and have actually kept in contact after our event in hopes that we may use her phenomenal skills once again. We HIGHLY recommend Carrie Miles Photography to anyone in search of what you dream of. Thank you so much for everything.

This photographer is top of the line! She has an excellent personality and talent that will give you the best wedding pictures. One great thing of many is that she comes to the Rehearsal Dinner without any extra charge to scope out the venue and get to know the Bridal Party and families. The cost of the pearl package that we got was phenomenal. She also sent a bonus gift when she sent CD of images!

Carrie will do whatever it takes to make sure you have amazing wedding photos. She even layed down in the snow to get a picture! Her and her husband have great personalities and are fun to work with.

Carrie was outstanding... her photos are gorgeous, she has a fun and engaging personality (but is also a calming presence on a day that's completely hectic!), and she's a total professional. I think she was one of the more expensive photographers that we looked at, but she's worth the money. We booked her for our wedding in September, and though the weather didn't cooperate, we were very happy with both our indoor and outdoor pictures. Carrie and David even brought some props (a chair and an umbrella) to jazz things up. She was also very willing to work with us to get the pictures we wanted, in addition to the typical / conventional wedding shots.

My husband Chris and I have been married a little over a year and just watched our wedding video and looked at the photos that Carrie and her husband Dave took, and we are still thrilled with the memories they captured for us. We knew we wanted to get married in southwest Michigan, but since I'm from Chicago and Chris is from New Hampshire, we didn't know anyone there and began searching for a photographer with a google search, where we found Carrie. She was a great help working with us in terms of location (it was a little over her range from Kalamazoo), package (we didn't want any prints, just a DVD with all the images so we could make prints for ourselves), and pricing. We liked what we saw from her website and blog, and we agreed to a contract for a wedding package with a free engagement session.
The problem was that Chris was living in Ohio and I was living in Mississippi, and we had no idea how we were going to meet with the Miles for our engagement session before the wedding. They were so gracious and invited us to meet them on their own vacation time in Ohio, to accommodate our schedules. Carrie showed us around her family's summer vacation community and spent the whole afternoon doing our shoot, then she and Dave took us out for dinner, their treat. We had a great time getting to know them, and those photos turned out beautifully.
Carrie stayed in communication with us throughout the planning process to make sure that we were on the same page and that she had names of folks we wanted to make sure were photographed, and was there and ready to go on the day of the wedding, on time. Her calm presence helped me to feel less stressed as she took care of photographing my dress and flowers as I was getting ready, and even gave advice about keeping my hair unfrizzed. She and Dave were so clearly focused on helping Chris and me feel special on our wedding day. They were very unobtrusive during the ceremony, and made sure to get photos of all the folks we had requested during the reception. The photographs turned out beautifully--luminously colorful, great detail, lovely lighting. We were so happy with the results, and we wish we lived close enough to be able to see them more often.
