All The Things You Ever Need to Know

The Carrs Photography is an editorial wedding photography studio specializing in documenting fine weddings in Chicago, Dayton, and Worldwide

Choosing a photographer may be one of the most important decisions a couple must make in regards to their wedding. You are deciding how your day will be documented for generations to come, how your children and grandchildren will remember the way you looked when you were their age, and how you will remember all the precious moments between the most loved people in your life. This is why we come alongside each person who comes through our doors, to help the process be smooth, enjoyable and hopefully easy! We believe that everyone should have the photographer of their dreams. This has been our philosophy since day 1. If you truly love the images displayed in our galleries, then the only thing left to figure out is whether or not we get along!  Let’s setup a meeting and see if we are the perfect fit for your wedding.

The Carrs Photography has added amazing associate photographers to our family business, allowing us to document even more incredible weddings in 2016-2017. Our associates are fantastic and experienced, but simply haven’t been in the business quite as long as Michael. With 10 years under his belt, Michael leads our team of photographers, always improving and seeking to provide a seamless experience from the first meeting through the wedding day. Please contact us to receive pricing information or with any questions.  We can’t wait!

Heirloom Albums Banner_880x225px_Header
We love albums… and we know you will too! Ultimately, the images taken on your big day are so much more than just documentation of an event. It is your story. We believe it is meant to be shared and experienced with others for years to come. It’s easy to get lost in the digital age where most images never leave our computer screens and hard drives. While that is nice to have, nothing compares to the experience of holding a photograph in your hand. With the turn of each page of your album, you not only feel a connection to your images, but it is a memory come to life. It is YOUR story, your biggest life events, told through the beauty of photographs.

With over a year of searching and weeding out plenty of album options, we discovered these custom heirlooms that we’re absolutely proud to offer. They are made with unrivaled workmanship, the highest quality, and the finest materials. That’s an unbeatable recipe.

Everything is handmade by skilled workers in the U.S. and constructed from as many natural, post-consumer, and recyclable materials as possible. The leather covers only come from hides of tanneries that have decent working conditions. There are over 50 album cover options? Yep, and because tooTone is also an option, we still haven’t had any two clients pick the same covers. Picking out your perfect album cover is a fun part of the process. For those of you who prefer non-leather options, there are fabric and PVC-free “pleather” options. All images are printed on edge-to-edge flush mounted pages featuring true silver halide Fuji lustre paper. Did we mention all of the packaging is 100% recyclable?

Heirloom Albums Banner_880x225px_3 Albums

Wedding albums start at 30 pages and can be customized with a total of 64 pages. The 40 page 10×14 album is the popular choice for most couples, which is perfect for 8-10 hour weddings. Complete your story with this beautiful 15-lb conversation starter on your coffee table. For a slightly more subtle statement, but no less impressive, the 6×9 album is perfect for on-the-go and sharing a little more space on the bookshelf.

Ultimately, the images taken on your big day are so much more than just documentation of an event. It is your story. We believe it is meant to be shared and experienced with others for years to come. It’s easy to get lost in the digital age where most images never leave our computer screens and hard drives. While that is nice to have, nothing compares to the experience of holding a photograph in your hand. With the turn of each page of your album, you not only feel a connection to your images, but it is a memory come to life. It is YOUR story, your biggest life events, told through the beauty of photographs.

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS, ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS OR ASSIGNMENTS?

Yes! We travel often for work. Although we are based in the Midwest, our team of photographers have worked all over the country, as well as escaping the borders for a few international destination weddings. For destination weddings, we requires airfare, lodging and possibly a rental car for the photographers. Since these are unique events, we approach each inquiry with a little more customization for the bride and groom.  Ask for a specific quote for your destination wedding.


HOW DO I GO ABOUT BOOKING THE CARRS FOR MY EVENT?

We take bookings on a first-come, first-served basis. Each booking requires a signed agreement and a retainer fee to reserve your date. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to the wedding.


WHO WILL PHOTOGRAPH MY WEDDING?

We have cultivated a team of professional photographers that you may choose from during the booking process. Each photographer has immense experience in the wedding and portrait industry. Whether your decision is based upon style, availability, personality, or budget, we want to make sure you choose the best photographer for your needs.


AFTER THE WEDDING HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?

Depending on the month of your wedding, the delivery of your images ranges from 4-8 weeks.  But there is the possibility that weddings shot during the busy season (June-October) will take closer to 8 weeks.


HOW MANY IMAGES WILL YOU DELIVER?

TOO MANY!  Literally, we think sometimes that we delivers too many images, to the point that it is overwhelming for the bride and groom to sift and sort through them all.  On average, we will deliver at least 500-600 images for a wedding.


HOW DO WE RECEIVE IMAGES?

A complimentary digital download from your personal online gallery is included with all wedding collections.


WHAT METHOD OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?

We accept all major credit cards, checks, or cash.  


WHY SHOULD WE INVEST IN AN ALBUM?

Ultimately, the images taken on your big day are so much more than just documentation of an event. It is your story. We believe it is meant to be shared and experienced with others for years to come. It’s easy to get lost in the digital age where most images never leave our computer screens and hard drives. While that is nice to have, nothing compares to the experience of holding a photograph in your hand. With the turn of each page of your album, you not only feel a connection to your images, but it is a memory come to life. It is YOUR story, your biggest life events, told through the beauty of photographs.


WHAT DO YOUR ALBUMS LOOK LIKE?

Our albums are handmade in the USA.  Composed of the finest materials, we are in love with each finished book that passes through our doors.


WHAT HAPPENS IF YOUR CAMERA BREAKS AT MY EVENT?

We shoot with professional-grade Canon camera bodies and lenses.  We show up to every event with backups for all our gear.  The last thing he wants to worry about is dropping a camera, but if it happens, he has another one ready to go.  Don’t worry!


DO YOU OFFER ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS

Yes, we love engagement sessions! It’s such a great way to get to know each other and so much fun. It offers the opportunity for you to become more comfortable with us and also provides good practice for your big day if you’re camera shy!
