HIRE HER YOU WON’T REGRET IT!!!! Seriously though - we hit the jackpot when we hired her! Amazing personality, amazing portfolio, amazing vibes - there is not enough space to write all the good things we experienced! Carissa did our engagement pictures as well as our wedding photos. She was super professional throughout the entire process but also became a true friend. She was always there if we had questions or concerns and always replied to my messages promptly. For both our engagement and wedding pictures, she had them back to us WAY sooner than we expected which was the most lovely surprise! Not to mention her photos are STUNNING It was important to my (now) husband and I that our pictures didn’t look posed, but rather natural and candid, so if this is what you’re looking for I would highly recommend! Carissa is a hard worker and is willing to take the extra effort to ensure you love your pictures. We will treasure these photos forever thanks to Carissa. More...

Carissa is hands down the best decision made during my wedding planning process. When I initially booked her I was drawn in by her beautiful photography style and ability to capture what seemed like some pretty special moments between couples. What happened after I booked her, far exceeded my expectations. Not only did Carissa go above and beyond, she also became a friend. She took the time to get to know my husband and me and we instantly connected. Her taking these extra steps to do this truly captured my relationship perfectly. Carissa is thorough and has an amazing eye for detail. The photos we received I will forever cherish. It’s truly overwhelming to look through all the photos because I love them all so much. I’ve had so many friends, family and strangers reach out to me to let me know how much they love the photos they’ve seen as well. Carissa most definitely is stuck with us for the rest of time because once my husband and I start a family there is nobody else I want to capture our special moments! Carissa, we can’t thank you enough. Truly. Thank you.❤️❤️ More...

Carissa is so professional and so fun and loving. She did our wedding pictures and I couldn’t have imagined anyone more perfect. She advocated for us and the pictures we wanted and let us have fun and be natural. If your on the fence DO IT! Pick Carissa she is fabulous! More...

Carissa captured the BEST photos of my boyfriend and I! Before meeting her, I was sure I was going to be camera shy but Carissa was so comforting, warm and bubbly it was so easy to be ourselves in front of the camera with her. She did such a fantastic job and we had so much fun! Thank you Carissa!! You are our girl to go to for our future events in life :) More...

Carissa! Most likely one of the best photographers in the area. She is committed and dedicated to her clients, she is easy going and super informative. She wants the best out of your special moments, just as you would! Her photos are detailed and edited perfectly, but not over edited! She captures all the little moments when there is so much going on around her. I would highly recommend Carissa to anyone looking for engagement and wedding photography! It’s hard to come by genuine business women these days and Carissa is definitely one of them :) More...

Can we give Carissa 1000 ! This review is excessively long overdue & I’m so sorry, girl!! Carissa is PHENOMENAL! AJ and I were overwhelmed when it came to picking a photographer to document our day; we had never worked with someone before and were scared to just let anyone capture the moments of our wedding. I legit stumbled upon Carissa in the Edmonton Wedding Buy and Sell and I’m so happy someone else took the time to recommend her! From the moment we first chatted over text, we connected (I believe she said it was from our excessive use of emojis ), from there, a phone call to discuss our needs and wants and basically the rest is history! From the time we officially booked Carissa she made us feel so comfortable and confident in our choice. We booked her in July 2017 but didn’t actually meet face to face until January 2018 for our engagement session, where considering it was -25 outside AND the fact that neither of us had ever had professional photos taken she made the process effortless, fun and captured photos we never thought possible! We were instantly comfortable around her! She had a handful of sneak peaks to me within hours and our engagement gallery to us within the week! We were floored with the outcome and knew even more that we had made the right choice with Carissa! The week of the wedding rolled around and I began to freak out - when you book a September wedding you don’t expect perfect weather, but you definitely do not expect WINTER! The few days before it rained, snowed, was windy as all hell and wasn’t looking better for the day of. All of our thoughts of our beautiful outdoor photos at the venues we’d picked went out the window and I was STRESSING! How were we supposed to find venues inside now on such short notice?! My hair and my dress were going to be ruined in the dirt, etc. ➡️ Carissa to the rescue! She reminded me that the day was about us and our love and celebrating it with each other and everyone we loved ❤️ She assured me everything was going to be ok and that she had it all under control. She wasn’t just our photographer, she was our friend. We had a couple indoor venues and still did some outdoor ones (despite the 1 degree weather!) and they are all breathtaking! I look at photos almost daily still and am still blown away! Carissa, we cannot thank you enough! ❤️ More...

This review is so long overdue. That’s mostly because I wanted to keep Carissa all to myself. ☺️☺️ I struggle with finding the right words to described her as a person and her art. She is BEYOND AMAZING. Carissa has this special ability, I call it her superpower, to make you feel like you’ve known her for years, and be so comfortable, so open, that she’s able to capture your true essence in the time that she has. I recommend Carissa to everyone that asks, even if they didn’t - lol. I have so many photos that I will no doubt cherish forever and it’s all thanks to her. I’m already looking forward to booking her for my many other milestones. Trust me when I say you won’t go wrong if you book her. Thank you Carissa. For everything. ❤️❤️ More...

Carissa! Hey you! I never fully thanked you for everything & the images you got for us. Going back & going through flooded me with a wave of emotions of all the best kind. Riding through the waves of labour everything was almost a surreal blur, euphoria mixed with exhaustion but having the photos to look back on meant more to me than I ever knew. There’s something about your own birth photos that make you feel so powerful but vulnerable at the same time and I can’t thank you enough. You truly have a gift and it shines in your work and just the vibes you brought despite late hours in the hospital. Beyond grateful to have crossed paths with you. If anyone is considering a photographer, I would highly recommend hiring this woman. I let her into the most intimate moments and everything was so organic. Little Liv, Kenny & I are forever grateful. More...

Carissa is AMAZING!! She is kind, caring and charismatic. She was constantly checking in with us about every detail along the way. She made sure we got exactly what we wanted for photos and kept it under time. Most importantly she is down to earth and made myself, my husband and our families feel comfortable and relaxed during the entire shoot. She is worth every single cent!! She captivated our special day and became one of the family xo More...

Carissa recently did some family photos for us. It was a little chilly and with a 6 month old we couldn't be outside for long. Somehow she was able to get us a good amount of great photos with such a small window of shooting time. She was great with my baby and managed to make my husband smile in the pictures. I would recommend Carissa to anyone seeking photos More...

Carissa was such a huge part of my wedding day, she has so much talent and passion for what she loves to do. It was a huge pleasure having her a part of my big day and capture those special moments for us. She is extremely easy to get a long with and work with. I would request Carissa a thousand times over if I could. She was amazing beyond expectation and had all of our guests talking about her by the end of the night. More...

I can't thank Carissa enough for here contribution to our wedding day. We had THE MOST PERFECT day and it was because of vendors like her who helped make it memorable. I've seen some sneak peeks and I absolutely love how she's captured how we were feeling in her photos. Each picture is full of so much emotion and I just love them - can't wait to see the rest! She was quick, professional and a ton of fun. Thanks Carissa! More...

Wow - where do I start? Carissa is exceptional, both as a photographer and just as a genuine and kind person! She made us feel completely at ease during our family/engagement photo session. As a wonderful mother herself she was also able to make my 7 month old giggle and laugh for the camera, even when he was fussy! She gives excellent direction while at the same time makes you feel comfortable enough to just be yourself and have fun in front of the camera. You can really see her passion for photography come through while she's composing the shot as they make beautiful pictures that look so natural. Thank you for making beautiful lasting memories for my family, we will definitely reach out for any other photography that we need in the future! Xoxox More...

When you look through Carissa's photos, it's clear to see that her works speaks for itself - she is a phenomenally talented photographer and her passion for what she does shines through in every session she shoots. What sets Carissa apart from other photographers is her infectious and easygoing personality and her silly sense of humour - she has a knack for keeping the mood light and fun and having her clients step a bit outside of their comfort zone, which results in amazing, candid photos (which are the best kind!). My hubby and I have had the pleasure of having Carissa do three photo sessions for us now - gender reveal photos, maternity photos and most recently, newborn/family photos, and each time she has made us feel incredibly comfortable in front of the camera and in turn the photos have turned out beautifully. She gives the perfect amount of direction to ensure her vision for your photoshoot turns out perfectly, and she nails it each and every time. Without question, Carissa will be our go-to for any other future photo sessions, we couldn't be happier with the memories she has captured for us already and look forward to working with her again.

Carissa did our engagement shoot this past weekend and she is incredible! She was fun and easy going and made sure we felt comfortable in front of the camera. She delivered us a sneak peek sooner than we expected and they were breath-taking! Carissa not only has an amazing eye and incredibly talented, but she is also has a great sense of humour and just an overall wonderful person. Both Rory and I found her amazing to work with and we look forward to having her shoot our wedding this coming summer. Thank you so much Carissa! You definitely deserve more than 5 stars! We cannot thank you enough! More...

Carissa was a dream to work with. Elliot & I were so luck to have her photograph our wedding in August.
First off, she is so caring and personable, I felt at ease all day long. Her sense of humor really lightened the day and literally made for a no stress zone.
Carissa took in account our style we were looking for. She even took the time to scope
out unique locations for our wedding shoot. I love trees & Carissa made sure that we had a
location filled with trees. That was really special! She goes above and beyond and we are gratfeul for that.
So far, the pictures we’ve seen are beyond anything we could have hoped for... Beautiful & Charming.
We continue to get compliments from our friends & family for the ones that have been shared.
The colours she edits with compliments our wedding colours and the feel for that day. Warm & Beautiful & Nature feels.
We eagerly await to see the rest. Without a doubt, they will all turn out all so magical & beautiful.
Carissa captured moments we didn’t even know existed. From the little moments to the important moments & those unique candid moments.
Very professional too might I add. Our family and friends absolutely loved Carissa! She interacted with everyone. Everyone spoke very highly of her and said she was a gem!

She has a heart of gold, silly sense of humor and has raw talent for capturing those moments you want to remember forever.
I would highly recommend her over and over again to anyone.

From the moment we met Carissa I knew she was going to create something beautiful for us.We had her do our wedding video, and watching it truly gives us goosebumps because she truly captured the emotions of the whole day. She made us feel completely comfortable and relaxed, she shares our same sense of humour and bonding with her made the footage she captured that much more special. When she asked us what we wanted for the video, I really wanted to focous on the special little moments, and she nailed it. Carissa's style is romantic and effortless, she was able to give us the most special momento from our day and we are so thankful. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and it felt like we were hanging out with an old friend the whole day, she puts her passion into her work and you can truly see it! More...

Carissa is amazing!!! From the moment she got back to me, it's been wonderful working with her. She is prompt, efficient, knowledgeable, and most importantly, she makes you feel so comfortable during your shoot. I did a boudoir, which I was very nervous about, but it was one of the best experiences I've ever had. I hope I can rope my husband into doing a couples shoot with me one day, and I would absolutely rehire Carissa in a heartbeat! More...

There is nothing bad to say about Carissa. From the first email, to the engagement, boudoir and wedding photos, she has been nothing short of amazing with me and John. She is so beyond talented with photography, and she makes you feel so comfortable, and relaxed, in any atmosphere you're in. She has a wicked sense of humour, and an awesome taste in music- especially the 90s hip hop! She takes the tiniest details some most wouldn't even think of, and makes them so vibrant, and brings them to life in the photos.. She was so much fun to hang out with all day, and she goes above and beyond to get the best shots and make sure the client is happy. I have definitely found my photographer for life with this girl!

Anyone who knows me, knows that the photography was the MOST important wedding detail for me. I found Carissa Marie Photography and her style spoke straight to my soul. I emailed her, and right from our first conversation, I could tell that she was a down to earth person, who had an absolute passion for her business.
When our big day finally came, Carissa exceeded every expectation I had for our wedding photographer. She was professional, confident, passionate, and so fun to have around. She is easygoing and composed – She fit right in and made everyone feel comfortable. She also has an impeccable attention-to-detail, and when we received our gallery, I was truly speechless. She captured our day so perfectly, and so authentically.
We will treasure these photos forever, and I am beyond thankful that we chose Carissa to capture those memories. ❤️✨

Carissa Was absolutely amazing! we had both our engagement shoot and wedding with her. At our engagement shoot we were both a bit nervous but she was so great and she made us feel so comfortable, by the end we were laughing and really enjoying ourselves! A few days before the wedding I was worried about the weather and taking pictures outside, she called me right away and we talked it out. She made me feel so much better and gave me an idea for warmth which ended up making our pictures that much more beautiful. Even at the reception it felt like she was a part of my big crazy family. We got our pictures back this week and i could not be more thrilled, they are all stunning! Thanks so much Carissa, you are truly wonderful. xo More...

My husband and I hired Carissa to document the birth of our first child. She was a fantastic addition to our birthing team, not only for the beautiful images she produced, but also for the support she provided me while I labored. If you’re considering birth photography or a doula in the YEG area, I highly recommend Carissa. More...
