quick facts about me

I am a photographer based out of Charlotte, North Carolina with the unique ability to capture the beauty that is already there. The way you smile, laugh, hug, hold, and enjoy your loved ones. Preserving life's precious gift of relationship into images. 

One of the best parts of my job is getting to know you. Your story, your interests and your unique vision. Through iced coffee dates and emoji filled text messages, my clients quickly become fast friends, enjoying the realness of life right along side you. From wedding days full of emotion, to families with littles running wild, I photograph all the quirks and personal details you wouldn't want to miss. 
 

Nice to meet you! 

I'm Sthefanie Carriker

+ Mitch and I just celebrated our TENTH anniversary this year! 

+ My name is pronounced "Stephanie" and no, it is not misspelled! It's actually an interesting story...

+ Life is short, and so am I- 4' 11'' and proud of it!

+ I am a certified beekeeper, and use to have eight hives. 

+ I am obsessed with the UK, so my favorite shows "Call the Midwife", "The Great British Bake Off", and "Downton Abbey" are on repeat.
  
+ Our daughter Addy has Down Syndrome, so I love helping educate others about her extra special chromosome!

I get to have the privilege of being the extra bridesmaid, smile encourager, and memory preservationist on the most magical day in the lives of my brides and grooms. I don't just preserve their big day, I turn it into art.

 "This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long". 

- "Blessed Assurance"

When we first meet you'll notice my joy. An eternal joy that comes from the deep hope and assurance found in Christ. Because of his love for me, I can fearlessly show up for my clients. Confident in who I am and the gifts God has given me to serve you.

 My hope is for you to experience the deep and gracious love of christ. To feel beautiful just as you are in front of my camera.
 
My goal is for you to enjoy the photo sessions process! You will always know what to expect with the quick resources I provide so feel prepared and looking your best - with a few comforting surprises along the way.


 

Everything I do, I do to share the love of Christ with my clients and bring glory to the Kingdom of God. 

Let's be insta- friends
