Carrie and Becca met and became friends 16 years ago. Their amazing friendship has grown through some amazing triumphs and devastating lows. They are a fun pair of ladies that laugh a lot have a blast photographing amazing moments with wonderful people like you!

Carrie has always had an artistic flare. She found her niche` 10 years ago in photographing weddings. A true hopeless romantic at heart (shh don't tell anyone, lol). Weddings were one thing she could never get enough of. The joy of capturing the love between two people has been a wonderful gift in her life. A couple years later she had her first child and the love for photographing newborns and children was born too.

Becca has a natural talent to pick up anything a be amazing at it! She first started as Carrie's assistant photographer. It was clear very early on that Becca had an amazing talent all her own. Her photography is much like she is, it brings out something wonderful in everyone. She earned her Bachelors degree in business in 2002 and because of that we call her the brains of the operation (and she really is!). It was a wonderful blessing to have her become a co-owner in 2009. She has contributed so much to not only the business but to each couple she has worked with. Read less

I can't say enough about how much we loved working with Carrie & Becca of Elegant Images! I was a stressed-out bride the morning of the wedding. As soon as they arrived, their relaxed and playful demeanor immediately lightened the mood. They have done hundreds of weddings and just took charge of things that needed to be done. They helped me in and out of my dress, gave me lots of suggestions for ways to have a more relaxing day, handed me tissues before I walked down the aisle, and they even cleaned off my shoes after the outdoor shots were taken. Amazing! It was as if I could just relax and they helped guide me through the day as soon as they arrived. And did I mention FUN?!? The pictures are amazing, because we were laughing the whole day. We really had a blast and they helped us have relaxed, natural, happy faces all day. I just got the pics back last week and they are STUNNING. Loved these ladies, and I love their work. The finished product is fantastic. Highly recommend.

We were so impressed with the services from elegeant images. We were only promised two photographers and they showed up on our wedding day with three. Our pictures turned out amazing and they captured everything possible moment from our special day. Carrie went above and beyond and was right by my side the entire day and even helped me when my dress ripped. I will definitely be using them again for future sessions.

Carrie and Becca are talented photographers and wonderful to work with. I enjoyed every moment, and they top my list of favorite vendors. I have already recommended their service to others and would highly recommend Elegant Images. Carrie photographed our wedding at 6 months pregnant, but this did not hold her back. I was so impressed with her energy and ideas. I would love to work with them in the future. Wonderful personality, very professional, and a true joy to work with.

The wedding photos are the one lasting thing after the wedding... all the food, drinks, flowers, entertainment are gone, the photos have permanence. We could not have been happier with our choice of Freed Photography.After your wedding, all that you have left are your memories, pictures, and video - hiring Elegant Images was one of the best decisions we made!

Carrie and her crew did an excellent job. She is very flexible and listens to what you want and will accomodate you. I do like how laid back Carrie is so that you never feel any pressure or have any concerns. I felt very comfortable, which is huge when you have such a big event going on. We like Carrie so much that she is now our family photographer for everything.

This is the third event that Carrie Stark has been our photographer. Each time she amazes us with her personality, professionalism, and flexibility. She traveled about 300 miles to be our second daughter�s photography and was amazing. We will use her again for our family photos to our last daughters wedding. She is FABOULOUS!!!!

Carrie has done photography for my sister's and my Wedding. She does amazing work and is one of the easiest people to work with. She is flexible, comforting, and will make sure that you get the pictures you are looking for. If you are planning a wedding Carrie/Elegant Images would be my whole family's reccommendation for a photographer!

Carrie did our engagement photos, my boudoir session and our wedding photos! Each time that I got the photos back I was amazed! The creativity, the angle everything from begging to end was absolutely perfect! There were the few things that I asked as far as my arms or double chins etc... LOL... and out of all of the photos she has taken each and every one was the perfect angle. I'm truly amazed with what she has done and will call her for every life event that requires a photographer... I'm actually having a "trash the dress" session with her next month, and I know those pictures will be as remarkable as the last she is truly talented and I would recommend her to anyone seeking a photographer. She was worth every penny!

Carrie is an amazing photographer to work with. She is laid back, easygoing and no stress! Exactly what we needed on and before our wedding day. My only request was a few specific photos and she made sure those were taken care off. After the wedding, we received the disk and were able to access photo's almost immediately. I would and have recommended her to other friends whom are getting married. Thanks Carrie!

What can I say? Carrie is AWESOME!!! I am beyond pleased with the photos she took on our wedding day. We have so many amazing shots, it is going to be hard to choose which ones to hang on the wall!

She is very professional and accommodating. Her communication was top-notch; she always got back with me quickly.

She is one of the less expensive photographers in this area, but you wouldn't know that to look at her photos. She did whatever necessary to get the shots that we wanted... I was wishing I had a camera so I could get a shot of her taking pics of us! Most of the day, she had two cameras around her neck to ensure she got the the pictures we wanted!
She was a blast to work with on the wedding day. Laid back... did whatever we asked her to. She even helped me with my gown!!

I highly recommend Carrie to capture your wedding day memories!

Carrie was amazing to work with. I chose to work with her because when we met I felt comfortable right away. She's funny, laid back, and has an amazing eye. She helped to keep me calm when I was being a brat during the photos. She always called right back whenever I called with questions. When we sat down to pick the photos for the album I was blown away that I could look that good in pictures! When the album finally came it was unreal. I have never seen anything like it. It's beautiful. It has been 7 months since the wedding and when people come over they ask to see the album again. We get nothing but compliments on it and I love getting it out for all to see. I couldn't be happier with what Carrie did for us.
She's extremely talented and if you want amazing memories or your big day I suggest you meet with her before anyone else. Thank you Carrie!

My daughter has not always been at home in front of the camera, so when we found Carrie, it was a done deal. Her down to earth manner and professional demeanor put my daughter at ease and allowed her to be photographed without even really being aware of the camera. We don't have our photos back yet, but I fully expect we will be thrilled. My only wish was that when out of our hands, the ceremony ended up an hour later than planned, we could have had one of the photographers stay for the exit of the bride and groom. I envisioned photos of sparklers in the night as they got into their "honeymoon" car and drove away. We will only have snapshots. Not Carrie's fault, of course, but a disappointment none-the-less.

We loved working with Carrie and Becca, they are amazing and helpful in more ways then just taking pictures.
Only a few things could have been better. I wish I would have had a copy of the photo list I wanted, we didn't get pictures of just the groom with the brides parents. Would have liked to have more pictures of the guests and more pictures of the kids dancing. Also kind of thought for that much money that more of the pictures would have been touched up.
With all that said, we would highly recommend them!!!! They were well worth the money!!

Elegant Images - Seattle Wedding Photographers responded with the following comments:

We have talked with Lori, retouched the requested photos and while we did have the list and read the list I misread the request. I simple thought it was a request for the Groom with his parents not the Groom alone with the Brides parents. We do have photos with the Bride, Groom and the Brides parents. I believe we have taking are of any request Lori had.

Carrie Starks with Elegant Images was incredible from the consultation to when photography at our wedding was done. We are pleased with how many images she took and the quality of which she is able to capture such great moments. Everyone in the wedding party and parents remarked at how easy it was to work with her. She is fun and energetic.

Thanks Carrie for such a great addition to make our wedding come together so smoothly!

I enjoyed working with Becca and Duane from Elegant Images who photographed my amazing wedding! I have also worked with Carrie on the end result of the book, which we are still working on. All of them are professional, fun, considerate and helped me capture all the moments of the best day of my life. Becca loosened me up by making me laugh, which allowed me to lose my nervousness and enjoy my special day even more. Duane captured many "detail" shots which showed al the wonderful decorations my friends worked so hard on. When I look at the photos, I relive many fun, emotional, silly and serious moments from August 28, 2010. All in all, I found working with Elegant Images a favorable experience. It was kind of expensive, but I got a DVD with all the photos on it, which allowed me to make any photos I wanted and send some to relatives who were unable to attend the wedding. I would recommend them highly!
