WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY FOR RAD, OFFBEAT, ALTERNATIVE AND NON-TRADITIONAL PEOPLE

MEET ME

I LOVE love and was born with a camera in my hand (blah blah all the usual photography profile junk). I photograph weddings in Denver, Grand Junction, all over Colorado and anywhere rad people take me. Here are the real important things. I have a birthmark in my armpit and am a terrible mathematician. What I lack in understanding of complex theories such as Pi (clearly a food item - apple is my favorite) and invisible numbers (if I can't see them why should I care?) I make up for in mad photography skills.

photography for offbeat, alternative, rad and Nerdy people

i'm pretty Cool as far as nerds go

Yep that's star wars font. The force is with me

mission statement

Carrie Swails Photography was created out of a need to ensure nerds, offbeat, and non-traditional people like me had an advocate at their weddings. I believe in weddings where people prioritize first, the fact they are getting married. I believe weddings don’t need a theme - isn’t the theme marriage?! I also believe in weddings that prioritize each person’s unique personality. I believe in weddings that incorporate non-traditional themes as well. 

I know there is a distinct lack of visual representation in the wedding industry of anyone who is perceived as not what society normalizes. I believe in re-defining normal as diverse and inclusive. Carrie Swails Photography not only welcomes, but celebrates (very enthusiastically) any client who has a hard time finding people who look like them in visual media in today’s society. 

Carrie Swails is a business that commits to being a safe space and seeks to include and advocate for all identities and cultures within its wedding photography and engagement services. Wedding photography services are based in Denver, Grand Junction, Steamboat Springs, Fort Collins and anywhere else in Colorado, but are provided anywhere you want me to travel where clients want an advocate for their unique wedding celebrations. 

These are the 5 most important things you need to know about having me as your photographer:

1. I believe we shouldn't have to put 'LGBTQ' or 'same-sex' in front of the word 'wedding' to find equality online. The world is full of amazing people getting married and I want to celebrate all types of diversity.
2. I am an advocate for people doing non-traditional, alternative, or offbeat weddings.
3. No matter what your body type is, your body is not an inconvenience. You are F-ing gorgeous and deserve epic wedding photos.
4. Pricing starts at $350/hour with a minimum 3 hour booking and I go wherever you take me.
5. If you have a costume wedding, I'm totally wearing one too.

allons-y!
