I began creating wedding photography over twenty years ago, and have seen many changes in the industry, mostly in the transition from film to digital. I love the endless creative possibilities afforded by digital imagery, but the discipline and background in film photography is an invaluable quality in today's market.

I have expanded my services into portraits of families, high school seniors, and children. My portraits are mostly an outdoor, "natural light" style, but additional lighting is often used to enhance the image. I try very hard to incorporate the landscape into my wedding and portrait images, which I believe creates my unique style and sets me apart from many photographers.

I have been able to greatly improve my knowledge and skills since having the opportunity to work with some of the most talented and creative photographers in New England and across the country as a member of the NHPPA (NH Professional Photographers Association), PPANE (Professional Photographers Association of New England), as well as PPA (Professional Photographers of America). Several times during the year, I attend professional photographic workshops throughout New England and beyond, where I further my skills and expertise.

I have been designated as a Certified Professional Photographer through the PPA. This involves an extensive written test to show technical and artistic knowledge, as well as an image portfolio submission to illustrate the same knowledge. Only 3% of photographers are designated as a CPP. Most recently, in 2016, I received the Master Of Photography Degree from PPA, which is achieved through print competition awards, ongoing education, and service to the association.

Several of my images have received Print "Merit" awards from these associations, including acceptance into the PPA Int'l Print Competition Loan Collection in 2013, 2014, and 2015, Polaroid Gallery Award in 2014, Court of Honor Award, 2015, and PPA Silver Medalist Award, 2013. Please enjoy my website, and feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.

Thanks again,

Jim Carlen, M. Photog., C.P.P. A.C. Ph.

Carlen Images did any amazing job at our wedding, from start to finish. We never had to worry about Jim getting the perfect shot. The superior service continued after our wedding day to the fast delivery of our photos and the creation of our album. We definitely got our money's worth.

The bottom line is that Carlen Images met and surpassed our expectations for capturing our special day. We would recommend him to anyone and everyone. Scoop him up before someone else does!

The experience that we had working with Carlen Images was professional from beginning to the very end. Both Jim and his daughter Saralyn were engaged in our creative desires for capturing the images of our wedding day. They worked tirelessly to ensure that we captured the tender, the funny, the beautifyl and the unique moments of the entire day. I would highly recommend his services to any couples, graduates, families or anyone looking for quality, artistic excellence and just a nice person to partner with for a special occasion.

We are very pleased with the images Jim made for my son Ben's senior portrait. He took the time to find the right spot, with the right lighting, and the pictures are great.

Jim Carlen did an excellent job on my wedding photos. I could not have been more pleased. Some of the shots were just incredibly. He had some great ideas for us, for example he had us leave the reception for a few minutes to dance in the garden, while he took pictures from the balcony. The photo album that was made for us was also incredible with a leather bound case and awesome interior designs. I would recommend Jim for other's weddings. There were shots that were taken, that I didn't even realize he was in the area at the time.

My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Jim for our wedding in October 2013. We met with several photographers prior and knew once we met Jim we felt much more comfortable. Throughout the entire process, Jim was patient and worked very well with us. He was very consultative and really put us at ease so we could focus on the wedding. Once we received the photos and the high quality album, we could not have been more pleased - absolutely fantastic! We give Jim the highest of recommendations and are very pleased with our experience and grateful to have so many amazing pictures.

Thank you, Dorian and Charlene Bown
