Hey! What’s UP? Hello.

Hi, I’m so glad that you found your way here! I’m Carletta (eh, not ee) and for as long as I can recall I’ve been the girl behind the camera. I’m a middle-child, married to an amazing man who I affectionately call The Ethiopian. Together, we live in Washington, DC with our cat Shiro (sure-oh) who we obsess over.

BOOK LOVER. CAT LADY. HGTV ADDICT.


I am a certified smile-chaser and a lover of love. I love a posed moment but I think the candid ones are just as important and I never stop working to show you that.

My goal is make you feel comfortable in front of the camera so that you are the truest reflection of your self. smile easily and most importantly – have a good time when we’re together. Each and every one of my clients will tell you how hard I work to make sure these things happen.

LOVES


Sequins + glitter (they’re my love language!), cupcakes, Grey’s Anatomy, breakfast for dinner, cats, thunderstorms, meeting new people, singing in the shower, VEEP, board games

NOT A FAN OF


Cucumbers, bugs, tailgaters

  • You know what you should do on your #wedding day? Whatever the hell you want! Don't want to wear a full suit? Don't. Don't want to wear white? Don't. Weddings are better when they are true to what YOU want as a couple. Do what sets your heart on fire and everything else will fall into place just as it did for the stunning Venera and her handsome, new husband, Dakota.
  • I'm at the point where I have SOv much work to share with you guys I don't even know where to start! So, I'm going to start with a photo of writer, poet, husband, father, all-around cool guy - @clintsmithiii - I loved SO MANY images from Clint's session - I might have to share them with you guys until forever, they were just that good.

One of the coolest things about my job is getting to meet brilliant people. Clint is that times a thousand. Do yourself a favor and check out his work. Go! Obviously, after you like this photo though :) #dcphotographer #headshots #headshotsdonthavetobeboring #poet #spokenword #dc
  • This? This is what you would call a bad ass motherf#cker. A person deeply committed to the #LGBTQ community and who, in their business @bodypositivebootcamp has created a welcoming and safe space for ALL bodies to exist. You often hear people touting #allbodiesaregoodbodies but Bee LIVES that! 
If you're in the DMV area you should look into Body Positive Bootcamp or share with a friend who would benefit from having a safe space to work out without some of the bullshit we know can come with it.

  • First things first, it's #pridemonth and I'm proud to say that my work is inclusive. This is Courtney + Sara who were my first 2018 couple and my first Jewish #wedding and it was such an amazing start to my season. 
I don't want to go off the rails but so often the photography we see on here is not nearly a reflection of the world we live in which is beautifully diverse. 
We should encourage others to push - to photograph faces and bodies that are different than our own, life is too short to not celebrate our likenesses AND our differences.

  • These two. Just a small reminder to celebrate the people you love every day that you're here.

  • It's been almost a year since these two got married and I'm STILL not over these photos. #dcphotographer #weddingphotographer #love #newlyweds
  • Shout out to Cindy + Jason who got up at zero dark thirty for a #LincolnMemorial #engagementsession. Can't wait for their #wedding later this year!

  • First look feels (swipe!). I am one of those #photographers who has no strong feelings about when couples see one another for the first time on their #wedding day. But I DO love when the emotions get the best of my couples and I end up getting photos like these.
