About

I am a chatty, not-so-serious, animal loving, midwest super-nerd + serial wedding entrepreneur, who has worked with over 1000 brides.

I love all things weddings + helping my gorgeous brides put their wedding visions into reality, easily and stress-free, so they can enjoy their engagement and be a fun-loving, laid back bride on their wedding day. 

In 2012, With a laptop and a love for photography I created a wedding company that was soul-aligned and driven by the "Do what you love" and "Be You" philosophies that I live by. 

Today, our studio of wedding photographers and videographers serve 5 locations (Iowa, Colorado, Missouri, Kansas and Illinois), offer 5 services (photography, videography, photo booth, DJ services and Invitations), and has grown into one of the most respected wedding services studios in the country.

WORLD TRAVELS

Fresh flowers are beautiful at weddings and in everyday life. They're the way to my heart.

FRESH FLOWERS

As a professional wedding photographer, romantic moments are simply my favorite.

ROMANTIC MOMENTS

What I love Most:

My laptop, a kitchen table and a love for weddings and photography + a whole lot of determination. Realizing quickly brides and couples want more than just a vendor, they want the best for their wedding (who doesn't, right?)

Well, we are better together. What's better than one amazing photographer? A team of wedding professionals! All we do is weddings! When working with Weddings By Carue, you have the support of our entire studio behind you - no matter what.

One studio. 5 locations, 5 services, fifteen award-winning photographers and four filmmakers (all handpicked by me).

Our team is composed of actual humans who are just really, really, GOOD PEOPLE. There is tons of talent and everyone brings their own flair to the studio - but at the end of the day, everyone is moral, ethical, kind and drama-free. And I love that. 

After working with over 1000 couples and brides, you could say I might know a little about weddings!
