Carrie Wildes Photography Wedding Reviews

Elegant Pink Downtown Tampa Wedding | Tampa Marriott Water Street

“When we were selecting a wedding photographer, the quality of past wedding pictures and communication with the photographer were the most important qualities. Carrie, the owner of Carrie Wildes Photography, was warm and passionate about covering our wedding. Her pictures were beautiful with much thought put into every shot!” – Melissa and Daniel

Whimsical Succulent Inspired Downtown Tampa Wedding | Rialto Theatre

“We wanted a photographer who could capture our style and was easy to work with. We also really appreciate a good candid, so that was important as well! We were lucky. Right after we got engaged Carrie Wildes Photography held a contest for an engagement photo session, and we were selected as winners. It was almost fate because we later realized that Carrie had also shot Bob’s sister and brother-in-law’s wedding a few years prior. Carrie is a breeze to work with and her photographs speak for themselves. Hiring her was a no-brainer!” – Val and Bob

Classic, White, Green and Gold Downtown Tampa Wedding | Tampa Club

“Austin’s mom was familiar with Carrie Wildes Photography and suggested we look into her. We were more than pleased with the services we received from Carrie. Not only was she professional but she cared and listened too. The photos she took of us, our families, and of the whole night will be some of my favorite memories forever. She certainly went above and beyond what we were hoping for. Since our move to Japan, Carrie worked around a whole different time change just to ensure we got our album and prints in a timely manner!” – Jillian and Austin

Copper Inspired Rustic Tampa Bay Wedding | Shahnasarian Hall

“Carrie Wildes Photography all the way! I told her she was making my wedding photographer dreams come true when she said she would do my wedding. Her pictures are just always so full of light and life, and that’s what I wanted our day to be remembered as. Carrie was my number one choice. I work in the wedding industry, and I’ve always really respected Carrie and the way that she does business; she’s the real deal! She really listened to what we wanted and delivered above and beyond what we were expecting. I remember when we talked about having a consultation, I told Alan, “Ok, I’m going to this consultation and don’t be surprised when I come home crying because I can’t have Carrie. I’ll get through it.” Little did I know she would be available and make a package specifically fit for my needs.” – Sarah and Alan

Traditional Blue Destination Florida Church Wedding |Harborside Chapel

“When it came to a photographer, we were told that this is where we shouldn’t cut corners. We wanted someone with a great reputation and someone we could completely trust to truly capture our big day! We had heard wonderful things about Carrie Wildes Photography, and a lot of people from my home church had spoken very highly of her as well. After our first phone call with her and connecting right away, we knew we wanted to hire her!” – Caitlin and Kyle

Romantic, Pastel Tuscan Inspired Tampa Heights Wedding | Armature Works

“The most important thing I looked for in a wedding photographer was someone who would work well with both Carl and I the day of the wedding and make taking pictures fun. When I met with Carrie of Carrie Wildes Photography she was so kind and easy-going! I knew we would work well together come the day of the wedding. She was calm and organized and didn’t push us to do anything we weren’t comfortable doing. Our pictures looked natural and timeless. I would highly recommend her to any bride!” – Brittany and Carl

“We definitely wanted a wedding photographer who was easy going, but also super organized and could accommodate our wishes on our wedding day. Carrie, of Carrie Wildes Photography, is so nice.

Boho Greenery Inspired Tampa Heights Wedding | Fancy Free Nursery

“I didn’t have to look for much. I worked alongside Carrie Wildes Photography for several years as a photographer myself. I know Carrie’s style, and it has always been a good fit for what Chris and I were looking for. She’s fun and sociable and my family and friends also loved her! I was absolutely honored to have Carrie shoot my wedding. Her service was beyond reproach and the photographs came out perfect.” – Haley and Chris

Elegant Dusty Rose and Metallic South Tampa Wedding | Centre Club

“The most important elements of my wedding were my photographer and videographer because they capture the moments that last a lifetime! I was looking for an immediate connection with our personalities and also someone who would capture my special moments with an eye for all the details. I believe it’s so important to feel comfortable and at ease with your photographer because you spend so much time with them throughout the whole wedding process! When it came time to pick my photographer there was only one choice, Carrie Wildes Photography. Alongside saying yes to Benny on our cruise, it was the second easiest yes I said! From our very first meeting, I knew in my heart Carrie was the one. She had the immediate understanding of what I wanted captured, and she delivered that and so much more. She is also one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met, and it was an absolute joy to work with her!” – Jessica and Benny

Garnet and Gold Florida State University Inspired Wedding | The Tampa Club

“We wanted someone who made us feel comfortable and was able to capture the windows in The Tampa club as they are not easy to work with. Miriam was super fun and made taking pictures a breeze. We both have large families and wanted to get as many pictures as possible. With Miriam and Greta we got ever single picture that we wanted! Carrie Wildes Photography not only was very experienced at photographing at The Tampa Club but had a fair price. Photography was very important to us because once the moment and day are over you can’t redo it! Their team made taking pictures a breeze and they all came out amazing!” – Madison and Matt

Elegant Navy Blue and Gold Downtown Tampa Wedding | The Tampa Club

“Great personality and energy, professional prints, unique and different angles and settings for the pictures. We specifically hired Carrie Wildes Photography because she not only came highly recommended, but also had the depth and quality of service we were looking for. We viewed many weddings that she shot at The Tampa Club and were highly impressed with her ability to capture the essence of the club and the beautiful views with the windows of the Grand Ballroom. The service was unmatched. We had very high expectations for our photos, and our final proofs beyond exceeded our expectations. We can’t thank her and her team enough for capturing our favorite moments in the most incredible way.” – Erin and Joe

Navy Blue Rustic Tampa Bay Wedding Round Up

“We really wanted someone who would do great candid shots in addition to the normal posed ones. We absolutely didn’t want cheesy or staged shots. It was also important the photos wouldn’t rely heavily on Photoshop. We saw Carrie’s work of Carrie Wildes Photography , and all of the shots looked like they captured real moments as opposed to posed ones. When we met with Carrie in person, we knew she was the person we were looking for.” – Lauren and Zach

Glamorous Champagne and Blush Downtown Tampa Wedding | The Vault

“We looked for a wedding photographer who was organized, dependable, and most importantly, took great pictures. TJ actually found Carrie Wildes Photography through Marry Me Tampa Bay! Once we saw the surprise engagement pictures and met with her, we knew she would be our wedding photographer. Carrie and Kandice were absolutely wonderful to work with. When we got our pictures, we were blown away with how awesome they were.” – Brooke and TJ

Elegant Black and Gold Tampa Marriott Waterside Wedding |Tampa Marriott Waterside

“We were looking for a photographer who could capture the action shots that showed the emotion of our day. Carrie Wildes Photography had done a number of weddings, including a few at the Marriott, so she was familiar with the venue. We instantly connected with Carrie in our meeting. She was taking words right out of my mouth for the way I hoped our photos would look! She had a lot of great ideas of locations for the first look, group shots and how to capture the ceremony from above.” – Nichole and Michael

Outdoor, Purple and Silver Country Club Wedding | Tampa Palms Golf & Country Club

“To us, the photographs were the biggest investment of the whole process. We knew early on that we didn’t want video, so our mission was to find the perfect photographer to capture the big day. We needed a photographer who was talented, artistic and could get the most out of us. I looked at thousands of photos on Carrie Wildes Photography blog, so before we met them we had a good feel for their style and quality. We knew from the first meeting that we were in good hands. We fell in love with our engagement photos, and our wedding photos were just incredible. We received many compliments at how hardworking the photographers Kandice and Rachel were that night battling the rain and chill of a February evening. They offered top-notch service and treated us like family. We anticipate that they’ll photograph many more important events in our lives!” – Angell and Jared
