My husband and I had Carrie take our engagement and wedding photos, and hands down, they are some of the best photos I have seen. She has an eye for angles, set up and details. Carrie is professional and puts you at ease from the moment you start working with her. For our engagement photos Carrie traveled to Las Vegas to shoot at the Neon Boneyard & The Wynn. Both of these sessions were amazing, and I have not stopped getting complements from the photos. Then Carrie shot our entire wedding day. She started when we were getting ready and traveled around the city! It was fabulous! If you are looking for a photographer, I would highly recommend Carrie! You will not be disappointed.

I met Carrie at a Wedding  Expo and she had the cutest booth setup and on the spot photo shoot that could later be viewed and printed online. I did minimal comparision shopping because I just loved her vibe and her pricing for the engagement and wedding photo package. She was super creative and exceeded my expectations for our engagement photos, we shot them on the streets of downtown Phx, specifically around all the graffati and street art. I still look at them today and love how unique they are. For our wedding she had tons of great ideas, which turuned out great. There was nothing she wouldn’t do for a great shot, she was climbing on things to get the best angle and really captured our special night. I would hands down recommend her photography services for your wedding or any special occasion. I hand picked all my vendors for my wedding and sadly I had some disappointments but Carrie Evans Photography delivered!

Madeleine Goldman Miami, FL

Carrie photographed my destination wedding in Miami, FL. She was professional and thorough in the planning process, which relieved stress so that I could focus on the wedding itself. She did exactly what we wanted and so much more. Our family and friends still talk about how Carrie was “everywhere” throughout the day and evening. Her creative eye often takes over and the diverse photo angles, lighting and spontaneous shots are part of the magic of her style and art. I love our photos and my husband and I are able to relive one of the most beautiful and important days of our lives through these amazing images. I would recommend hiring Carrie Evans Photography for any occasion and I will certainly hire her again!

Arizona Weddings Magazine Associate Publisher, Adrienne Honig.

Carrie’s easy-going charm has a way of bring out the best in her subjects! We even used her for our staff headshots and business holiday card and couldn’t have been more pleased.  We’re thrilled to have discovered her talented work–particularly as it relates to weddings– and look forward to an ongoing relationship!

Phoenix Magazine Executive Creative Director, Brian Goddard

I’ve hired Carrie for some amazing editorial photography including covers of Phoenix magazine, she’s photographed my family and she is not only amazingly creative and fast, but I consider her a great friend and wonderful to be around. When she blows up and is shooting for Rolling Stone and Esquire, I hope she still takes my calls..

VeriSearch co founder, Jeff Schwerdt Scottsdale, AZ

Top Notch! If you’re Looking for the Best Photographer in the Scottsdale Area, look no further than Carrie Evans Photography. Carrie came to our company through a referral of a friend for an automotive shoot, and while we looked around, that process quickly stopped 5 minutes into our initial meeting with her. She is wildly talented and a true master of her craft, understands business, the shoot requirements, and is able to communicate clearly. Not only was she able to scout and find an amazing location for us, we caught her mid shoot laying on gravel next to railroad tracks in 100 degree weather to get an angle no one else had thought of. She will really do whatever it takes to get the shot. If she’ll go that far for a simple car shoot, I can only imagine how amazing your wedding, modeling, or family event will turn out. You’re about to work with a true professional.

 

Robert K. Scottsdale, AZ

Carrie, Thank you again for the pics.  I never thought they would have made the impact on my life that they have.  Match got absolutely crazy, so I hid my profile.  Plenty of dates… both on and off Match.  I have been able to connect and reconnect with so many people in so little time, and I owe a lot of the credit to your photos.  One of my friends calls my favorite pic the “money shot”.  LOL  It has brought me newfound confidence and an intoxicating dose of happiness.  I can honestly say your shoot was one of the best things I ever did to improve life in AZ!   Thanks Much Carrie!  Life is good.

Abbey R. Chandler, AZ

My fiancé and I were engaged New Years of 2012, and we met Carrie at a bridal expo in March of the same year. I want to say that Carrie was one of many that we ran into trying to find a photographer, and she was the only one that showed she genuinely cared for Aaron and I, what we wanted and that she cared for how special our day was. She showed immediate enthusiasm about our wedding, genuine interest in our choice of special day (Halloween) and was helpful in every way concerning not only ideas for the wedding itself but also our engagement session. She was excited, she took suggestions and examples, she did every single thing that we asked for, she went above and beyond to ensure that our day would be photographically represented in the best and most beautiful way possible. I don’t believe that any other photographer could have possibly given us exactly what we wanted and made us as happy as she has. I would recommend Carrie to anyone for anything that they need a photographer for, and if I ever need a photographer Carrie will always be my first choice.

Shimmy Shack owner Debra L. South Lyon, MI

Carrie is a rock star, plain and simple. She is one of the world’s best, no doubt. She took on the seemingly impossible task of wrangling 12 amateur female and male models and turning them into the hottest calendar models ever. This calendar is not a calendar. It’s a work of art.

Terri Lea Photography Tempe, AZ

This woman is fun, professional and brings energy to her work.  I got to shoot behind-the-scenes video of Carrie Evans during a editorial photo shoot for PHOENIX magazine.  She kept the shoot moving smoothly during a time-limited sunset shot.  Her final images were varied in selection and beautiful in composition.  I was impressed at her ability to think quickly and creatively.  I would definitely recommend Carrie for editorial or commercial photography.

The Clotherie Biltmore owner Greg Eveloff

Carrie was our photographer at The Clotherie for the cover of Phoenix Magazine…she was extremely professional and did a phenomenal job. It was a huge success! I would use Carrie Evans Photography for any of my business or personal photographic needs…she is amazing!

Jessica and Eric Gilbert, AZ

Having Carrie as a photographer was amazing. Before our engagement shoot, my husband and I were nervous that the whole process would be awkward, but Carrie immediately made us feel comfortable. We ended up getting beautiful shots and we were extremely pleased.
On our wedding day, Carrie captured all of our special moments and so much more! We have had nothing but wonderful compliments on our wedding pictures.
We highly recommend Carrie Evans Photography to capture moments from any special occasion.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Carrie’s photography skills and personal character.
Thank you Carrie!

Royal Oaks Retirement Community, Marketing Director Vicki U. Sun City, AZ

I am the Marketing Director at Royal Oak Retirement Community. Twice now we have had the extreme pleasure of working with Carrie. The first time Carrie was on-site, she photographed candid and posed shots for our annual report and the photos were perfect. This week, she was on-site to creatively photograph residents for a charity calendar and the images will be collector items!  She puts 80-year-old residents so at ease that they start playing to the camera! She’s creative and offers great suggestions and her attention to detail is second to none. I am happy to be a reference for Carrie and highly recommend her.

Keri A. Scottsdale, AZ

Carrie shot our first family portraits ever, and we were so happy with the results!  Her prices were so reasonable, she was prompt, professional and was excellent with our two young kids.  Carrie is so sweet and very easy to work with. I’ll be calling her in the future and I highly recommend you do the same!

Alexa W. Scottsdale,AZ

I heard great things from one of my friends about Carrie and how much of a wonderful photographer she is with reasonable prices! I gave her a try for my senior photos and absolutely loved her. She’s very funny and helped make it a fun and memorable experience and the pictures came out amazing!

Phoenix Magazine Art Director, Mirelle I.

Carrie and I worked on quite possibly one of the fastest photoshoots in PHOENIX magazine history together (1 min. 17 secs. to be exact) and came out with many outstanding selects. She knows her craft inside and out and I trust her to take a fantastic shot no matter the conditions or time constraints. She is easy-going and fun which I feel helps subjects feel calm and comfortable in front of her lens.

Serena H. Glendale, AZ

Carrie is amazing to work with! I met her at a bridal expo and didn’t need to think twice about who I wanted to photograph my wedding. I started off with a boudoir shoot. Of course its awkward and embarrassing but she made it so much fun! She made an album for me and it came out beautifully! Then she worked with us in our crazy engagement photo session. She hiked down a steep hill in flip flops and got soaking wet at the lake with jeans on, all so we could have the best pictures…and they were the BEST :) I can’t wait for our wedding day, I know she’ll capture every perfect moment! I highly recommend Carrie!

Tim H. Goodyear, AZ

Carrie Evans is a very professional yet fun photographer.  She photographed our wedding and did an amazing job!  The shots were unique but classy and professional.  We could not have made a better choice for this special occasion.  We would greatly recommend her to anyone and will be using her again in the future for all our special events.

Kiko Cruz Hair Artistry Scottsdale, AZ

I have had the opportunity to work with Carrie several times in her studio and on location as well. Every time Carrie has proven to be completely inspiring and very professional. Whether it be having my personal photos done to update my business portfolio or working with her on location I’m always excited to see Carries finished work! I have been a hairstylist for 25 years and have worked with many of the greats in the Biz. It’s nice to still see such talent and dedication.

Carrie and I continue to work together on high fashion projects. I am now signed with Kavir Model Management and BMG Models. She remains one of my favorite photogs to  work with in the biz!

To work with Carrie is true Bliss.She has the most creative eye and really knows how to capture the beauty in every person she shoots.I have worked with her on a number of photoshoots and she delivers an amazing energy every single time.

Arizona Association FFA, State Representative, Justen Ollendick

Carrie was contracted by our main sister organization (The National FFA Organization) to do a segment of a nation wide photo shoot for print publications and advertisements. She was very easy to communicate with and kept me in the loop with what our corporate office was asking. She was great with the students that we were working with, and really captured what was asked of her and so much more! Carrie is truly a fantastic photographer! I highly recommend booking her! Thanks for the hard work Carrie!

Ashley M. Gilbert, AZ

Carrie is amazing! My fiancé and I are long distance (currently he’s in Calgary, AB) and Carrie was wonderful to work with. She just shot our engagement session and was super flexible when we needed them done last minute and in the scorching July summer day. She has brilliant ideas that come to life beautifully in the photos. She worked with us at 2 different locations and 3 outfit changes and worked with my big lug of a dog. She was professional and personable. I would and will be recommending her to all my friends. I don’t have one complaint, you’ll love her!!


Alicia H. Scottsdale, AZ

Carrie is a wonderful photographer! She photographed our wedding in April and we couldn’t be more happy with the job that she did. She is a true professional and exceptionally creative. The pictures turned out great and we will cherish them for the rest of our lives. She captured all the important moments and was very unobtrusive. We would recommend her services to anyone! You won’t be disappointed!

Nostalgic Boutique Scottsdale, AZ

I’m a women’s clothing designer based in AZ. I started my collection in 2007/08 and over the years I’ve worked with many local photographers.   There is some amazing talent out there, but I have to say Carrie is among the best of the best!  As a designer my biggest concern is capturing the details of the garment as well as the personality of the models…which is exactly what she does.  Carrie has a creative eye and a true passion for her craft.  It was a joy to work with her and I look forward to working with her again soon!

ENG Lending Scottsdale, AZ

Carrie, took photos of all of our employees for our new website a few months ago and she did a great job!  Very professional and great photos.  She really helped us make it a fun experience for the staff and was able to give us a good price for our office photo shoot.  I would highly recommend her for any photography needs for business or personal.

Carmen A. Waddell, AZ

I purchased a boudoir session to surprise my husband. I have always been very modest and was stepping way out of my comfort zone; needless to say I was SO very nervous. Upon meeting Carrie, she immediately made me feel at ease. Having NO idea what to do in front of the camera… she gave me very helpful direction and made it easy for me to pose in front of the camera. Carrie took what I imagined to be an awkward experience and made it so much FUN! She had asked me send her photos of the outfit(s) I was planning to wear a couple of days before the shoot so when I arrived she had her props and backdrops ready for the photo shoot. A TOTAL professional in every way… Carrie is awesome to work with!


Sam H. Phoenix, Az

I could not believe the photos that Carrie was able to get of my baby Savannah. I thought our first photo shoot, when my daughter was about 8 months old, was ruined because my daughter kept crying and trying to escape. To my surprise, she shot some of the most beautiful photos of my daughter. I just couldn’t believe it. Carrie knew just what to do and just what to have us do to get her to make certain facial expressions, etc. Our photos were so absolutely beautiful. Since the first shoot, we took Savannah back for her first birthday and once again, Carrie came through. I used to think anyone could take a picture. Boy was I wrong. I definitely recommend Carrie Evans Photography to anyone. She has really been incredible and I look forward to having Carrie be our official family photographer :)


Katie W. Scottsdale, AZ

Carrie is absolutely amazing to work with! I recently did a boudoir photo shoot for my sweetie and I was very nervous coming in because it was my first time doing anything like that! But Carrie was absolutely professional and made the experience so comfortable and fun! She had amazing energy and was an absolute joy to work with. In addition, she was very easy to get in contact with and returned all of my calls in a very timely fashion – which isn’t easy for busy photographers! I’m definitely using her again and highly recommend Carrie for any of your photography needs.


Sarah R. Scottsdale, AZ

Carrie Evans Photography was excellent . Her photography skills are unbelievable . Carrie delivered our family portraits very quick with a professional touch. She made our family very comfortable and we had fun doing it . Carrie gave us a lot of creative options for our photo shoot. Since my family is large with 8 of us she directed us and made it very easy. Carrie has a quick turn around time with the photos. She can basically do whatever you want. After my friends and co workers saw Carries work my co worker has since booked Carrie to photograph her wedding. Carrie will be our photographer for life. Thank you Carrie !! Excellent photographer in Arizona !!


Brandi F. Scottsdale, AZ

Carrie is an awesome, easy going and creative photographer who knows just what to do to get some amazing photos. She makes everyone feel at ease. You will have some works of art when she’s done!


Aurora S. Phoenix, AZ

Found Carrie via a Living Social deal and I’m so glad I did! Carrie is professional, creative and loves what she does. She put me at ease and was so fun to work with. I’m so happy with my pictures and my experience with her.


Sarah W. Phoenix, AZ

Carrie was wonderful! I went to her for boudoir pictures to give my husband as a wedding gift! Pictures took from the shoot day to finish about a month and turned out amazingly! Thanks SO much, I’d totally recommend her for a fun experience and shoot!


Katie W. Scottsdale, AZ

Carrie is an absolute joy to work with! I recently came in for a boudoir photo shoot and was very nervous because it was my first time doing anything like it. Carrie was so professional & nice that I felt comfortable right away! She had amazing energy and really worked hard to capture the best angles. In addition, she was always very prompt in returning my phone calls & emails! I definitely recommend Carrie for any of your photography needs!


Vanessa F. Gilbert, AZ

I hired Carrie to shoot a Boudoir session for me. I was so nervous when I got there I almost didn’t go through with it. Carrie’s professionalism, and her studio layout, were enough to calm my nerves and get us started. After the shooting started, with Carrie’s direction and encouragement I relaxed and really enjoyed myself. The photos turned out amazing! I’ll be hiring her again to photograph my 4 children next month.


Maria M. Mesa, AZ

Carrie’s just awesome. She’s got great energy and really enjoys her work. At one point I looked up and she was on a ladder slowly stepping toward me, focusing the lens, changing lighting,while rearranging angles and after my photo shoot I was happily exhausted for her tremendous efforts! I wouldn’t use anyone else :)


Judith C. Goodyear, AZ

I went to see Carrie after purchasing a boudoir session on living social. Initially I was nervous about having my photos taken, I’m usually pretty reserved, but I had such an amazing time! She instantly made feel at ease and comfortable. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs photos taken for any occasion, I have already told my family they have to go to Carrie for a boudoir photo session because we had a blast!


Ashley T. Phoenix, AZ

Carrie took the most amazing pictures of my two kids! I have a 3 year old and a baby that just turned 1. We have had them done 3 times now with Carrie. She has been taking pictures of my kids since my youngest was 4 months and oldest was 2 and a half. She is incredibly patient and got amazing shot!! She is reasonably priced. And unlike the corporate studios she gives you a cd with the pictures to do what you want instead of spending a fortune on prints and having to choose which picture you love more. Her studio is very clean. She is super creative with every shot!! Love, love, love the pictures!!


Christy W. Phoenix, AZ

Carrie Evans is an absolute pleasure to work with. She recently photographed my one year old who never sits still! She captured everything we could have wanted and more for his year old photos. Carrie’s artistic nature enables her to capture the true story of a photo! We will be recommending her to everyone we know. Thank you Carrie for taking such good care of us. We are looking forward to the family pictures this fall!


Toni D. Mesa, AZ

I love her technique! The way she works with color is fabulous, especially in her wedding shots from Sedona. She is a true artist- Some of her photos truly took my breath away. I am really looking forward to working with her!


Karlee H. Phoenix, AZ

I had yet been able to get professional photographs of my daughter, Savannah, when a friend of mine recommended Carrie Evans Photography. She took such beautiful, amazing and creative shots of my 7 month old, and I am forever grateful that I can have these photos to remember my fast growing and everchanging child. She was very professional and gentle with my squirmy (and sometimes cranky) daughter. I can’t wait for my next photo session with her. She is also VERY reasonably priced, and the final editing was great! I highly recommend her.

Lindsay H. Scottsdale, AZ

Carrie is a fantastic photographer! I recently took head shots with her and they turned out amazing. She quickly put me at east in front of the camera and knows how to capture your best angles. I would highly recommend her for any of your photo needs!

Megan C. Scottsdale, AZ

Carrie Evans recently shot new business head shots for me and she did a tremendous job. Not only was she great at making me feel comfortable in front of the camera but the photos she took turned out great. I will most certainly be using Carrie for any personal or professional photos I need in the future and I would strongly recommend her.
