Here at The Carrs Photography we are storytellers equipped with cameras. We are a boutique studio based in the Midwest, focused on creating a one-of-a-kind experience and documenting the most precious moments of people's lives.

As the primary photographer, Michael has over 8 years of experience shooting weddings and portraits across the country. He has spent that time learning how to work with each bride & groom in such a way that they will be comfortable in front of the camera, and actually be THEMSELVES!

Love your images. Love the experience. That is the goal every time our cameras come out.

Can't say enough positive things about our whole wedding experience with The Carrs. From our first initial meeting, we knew we had to have Michael photograph our wedding! Photography was one of the single most important aspects to us, and we wanted the best, and The Carrs are truly the best. They helped us through the entire wedding planning process, from figuring out that ever daunting day-of timeline to hosting fun little parties to help their Brides relax, to most importantly reminding us to choose Joy on our wedding day and enjoy every second. And that joy is reflected in our photos! They have a killer studio and awesome style, and we are lucky to consider Michael & Grace friends now. They have an amazing staff (The Carrs & Co.) that go above and beyond to make your experience the best ever. They are fast to respond, fun, funny, and add so many personal touches so it's not just some guy photographing your wedding, it's an experience. I attended a Bridal Relaxation Bootcamp and a Teas & Timeline event, and we had a reveal party at their studio with wine and we got to see all our photos for the first time with Michael. Michael even traveled to Columbus for our engagement session since that is where we got engaged, and he was so accommodating when we wanted photos with our dog Oliver for both the engagement & wedding photos. We left the wedding photo locations up to him and had beautiful garden shots at Wegerzyn Gardens and urban shots downtown Dayton. One of the most important things is to make sure your personalities get along with your photographer's since you will spend the WHOLE day together, and my husband and I couldn't be more pleased in our decision to go with The Carrs. Worth every penny and more. Thank you for capturing our wedding day so beautifully!

Look no further, you have found the photographer of your dreams! The Carr's are the absolute best in the business! They are creative, kind, timely and organized. They make taking pictures so much fun and make you sit at home praying Michael will post another teaser from your shoot! :-)
My husband and I live in Colorado but were having our wedding ceremony in Dayton. With our package, we received engagement pictures and wanted them taken out in Colorado. We thought this would be a huge issue and that we'd have to find another photographer for our engagement shoot out here. But it was no problem at all, we mentioned that we wanted to do our shoot in Colorado, and Michael flew out to take our engagement pictures here!!! Michael had us up taking pictures before the sunrise and the photos are absolutely priceless. We have received endless compliments on how incredibly beautiful the pictures are. Secondly, for our wedding, my husband and I can easily say that Michael was one of our best vendor choices. He showed up on time, did his job wonderfully, looked professional and NEVER once seemed rushed/stressed/worried. Every single person in our bridal party commented to us on how great he was and on how easy he made the whole day. Our guests kept coming up to us complimenting how our photographer seemed to take a picture of every moment without ever being in the way. We cannot say enough good things about The Carrs Photography and would recommend them to anyone and everyone!!!

Flawless! Photography was the toughest vendor decision for me and we couldn't be happier with our choice of The Carrs.

Michael & Grace are a great team and helped make our engagement and wedding day special. Michael traveled to Columbus from Dayton for our engagement photos and really helped us create the images we wanted. On our wedding day he was calm and patient and we received a million compliments from our family and friends on his demeanor during bridal party and family photos. Our photos are gorgeous and we will treasure them forever. We're looking forward to utilizing their services again in the future for family or child photos. Go with The Carrs!

Choosing the Carrs Photography was by far the best choice we made for our wedding. You do not even need to think twice...HIRE MICHAEL AS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER. Everything from our engagement photos to the day of our wedding was beyond what I could have expected from a photographer. The day of the wedding he had so many great ideas for photographs and was so fun and energetic throughout the day. We couldn't wait to see how the photos turned out and let me tell you we were not disappointed. The photos were amazing and we got more compliments than I ever imagined. I've had 3 people who I didn't even know get in touch with me to ask who took our photos and they all booked Michael after seeing how great our pictures turned out. These pictures are something we will cherish for the rest of our lives and I am so thankful we chose Michael to have such an important part of our wedding day. The Carrs Photography is most definitely the best choice we made for our wedding. I recommend him to anyone who wants to make sure to have only the absolute best wedding pictures.

The Carrs did an incredible job on our September 2014 wedding. Not only did they shoot breathtaking photos in difficult light, but they provided much needed coordination and direction the day of. Highly, highly recommended.

I cannot really say enough good things about Michael and his wife, Grace. Michael is a phenomenal photographer, and his wife Grace is the "brains behind the business" (as Michael would say!) Both Michael and Grace are responsive, relaxed, and incredibly flexible.

For our engagement photos, neither my husband or I knew what to expect. Michael came prepared with creative ideas that resulted in an awesome variety of fun, romantic, totally frame-worthy photos. My husband wasn't initially too thrilled about having engagement photos taken in the first place, but the fact that Michael was such a down-to-earth, cool person made a huge difference for us.

Now for the wedding... I will just start by saying I am not the type of person who particularly enjoys getting my picture taken, but with Michael, I didn't even know I was being photographed. We didn't want an overabundance of canned/staged poses and pictures. We were more looking for him to be able to blend into the background, but still be able to produce high quality shots and capture the true feeling of the night. He COMPLETELY exceeded our expectations here!

Since receiving our photos last week, I have directed all of my family and friends to our online album to relive our perfect day. It feels incredible to share photos I feel confident in that really illustrate how beautiful our day felt.

Of all our wedding vendors, Michael is the best decision we made. I plan to recommend him to everyone I know in the Dayton/Cincinnati area!

I really could not have asked for a better photographer for our day! From the first e-mail I sent him, he was willing to work with our budget and St. Louis location because I was just in love with his work. When people have seen our pictures they've said those are the best wedding pics they'd ever seen. My husband also loved that the day of he was so calm and helped us get away and have some quiet moments together in the midst of the craziness (those moments made for some great pics too!) No question he's one of the best!!

We met Michael Carr and his wife at a bridal show and instantly fell in love with their style of photography. We were a little worried about the price at first, but it was totally worth it! Michael is a joy to work with. He always has a smile on his face and is ready to face whatever you bring him. Our wedding and engagement photos turned out absolutely stunning! We couldn't have asked for anything better. Michael's assistant was also great to work with! The photos you see on the Carrs website are really what your wedding photos are going to look like. Michael was also very accommodating and flexible with hours and timing. We are sad that our time with him is over.

Booking The Carrs Photography was by far the best decision we made when planning our wedding. From the first email inquiring about their availability & pricing, to the hug goodbye at the end of our wedding day, Michael, Grace & their assistant, Arthur, were absolutely FANTASTIC. Michael arrived early on the wedding day and was extremely positive and patient throughout the entire day. He was kind to our families and friends, creative, and incredibly professional. He has a very calming presence and showed sincere respect for the significance of our day. It has been weeks since our wedding and we are still hearing compliments about our photographer. We can't wait to show our BEAUTIFUL pictures to our family and friends. Thank you, Carrs!
