Carla Blain Photography

This ‘art’ is about connections for me. REAL couples in Love and Lust. Raw ….emotive… romance and grit! I enjoy the experiment and exploration of it all. Each wedding I witness with a fresh pair of eyes, no preconceptions, only the goal to create excellence… something different, yes, but ultimately something memorable and which surpasses expectation.

I Invite you to jump into my world. Excite me with your plans, collaborate with me in your experience. I believe that true creativity can only be reached by melting away the rule book! I’m not for everyone, I’m about heart and passion and being on form! (and that belly crunching ….laughing hard ….buzz called life !!)
