About Carissa

Hey Everyone! Thanks for coming to visit my page! I am so excited for you to see all these beautiful images! I have been a photographer for four years. My passion is capturing weddings, each wedding I shoot I am in awe of how special and fulfilling it makes me feel. Beyond wedding photography I love doing Fresh 48 sessions, getting to document those special tender moments just days after your sweet new baby has entered the world gives me all the feels.

My husband and I live in South Carolina as of 2016, we made a big move from California where my husband served in the USMC for 4 years. I am so very proud of him! We are planning to make SC our home and grow in the Upstate! We had our first baby in October of 2017 and couldn't be more in love with her.

I hope you decide to stop back and check out more beautiful images and watch me grow as a photographer!

Congratulations! You're engaged! 

On this page you will see my favorite wedding portraits, coming soon will be sweet notes from my brides and resources for my future brides.

I am so thankful and excited that you are considering Cj Bradley Photography to capture your special day, keep checking back for more beautiful weddings and see below for the wedding experience details.

The wedding experience

Your wedding day is going to be your most crazy and exciting day for you and I couldn't be happier to be included. 

I like to start off by getting a chance to talk, in person or over email so that we can get a chance to know each other and see if I'm the right fit for your big day! Once we establish that I am indeed a perfect match for your day we can move on to that special date you have in mind, and get that in the books with an online contract and deposit. 

Once I have you officially on the books we get to the fun stuff, being your engagement session (YES, it is included in your wedding package!). Your engagement session is going to be such a fun experience for you and your fiance! Also a great time for us to practice posing and getting comfortable in front of my camera before the big day. Don't worry I'll be sending you a fun style guide and will be with you every step of the way as we capture gorgeous images! 

When we hit six to eight weeks out from your wedding day it will be time for us to sit down and talk about your timeline, make sure that we are allowing enough time for family formals, bridal portraits, getting ready shots, and of course that long awaited first look!

When we get to your big day I will be there to cover 8+ hours from your getting ready shots, to family formals all the way to your exciting exit! I love the thrill and emotion getting to photograph such a special day for you  so I continue that excitement for you into a blog post just days after your wedding so you can see a little sneak of your gorgeous wedding and share with your friends and family! 

After your wedding day I will get your images delivered to you in a beautiful online gallery, where you will get to savor every moment from the day you married the love of your life. You will be able to share your gallery with friends and loved ones, let your mama print those images to put up on her wall of her baby getting married!
