Couples in Colorado: meet your new photographer best friend. Want to know why? Because this chick is a full-on Lord of the Rings-loving, too many dogs-owning (or can there be too many?), Simon Pegg-quoting, awkward pose-hating, ultra rad photographer who totally embraces ALL your offbeat quirks. I'm talking about Denver- and Boulder-based Carrie Swails Photography.

We've talked about her before, and we already know that Tribesmaids and readers love her. Now you get to meet her and see if she's your wedding photographer match. I have a feeling she just might be.


One of the BEST parts of working with Carrie is that she prices by the hour so you can customize the photography to your budget (and trust me, it's budget-friendly!). But no matter how many hours you book, you'll always get the print rights to the digital files so you can share them on Facebook, get them printed, or submit them to a certain website (hint hint). Do we want to feature your wedding as seen through Carrie's lens? Hell yes we do.

Carrie also specifically focuses on non-traditional weddings of all shapes and sizes. She loves your tattoos, your costume weddings, or your just-slightly-personalized wedding. She'll capture all of the elements of your personality that make the wedding uniquely yours, no matter what you choose to do.


And here's where we start getting real with examples of Carrie's talent. Peruse the glory that is these nerdy, same-sex, simple and serene, and just plain awesome weddings that Carrie has captured with style:

Want to be one of these weddings? Carrie will hook you up.


Now that we've seen Carrie's amazing ability to capture all the wedding goodness, let's see what these clients had to say about her:

Carrie was amazing for our wedding photography (and we loved our engagement session as well!). She made both of us feel totally comfortable, the photos came out perfectly, and every moment we wanted to be captured was captured. Her pictures were so good that our venue is using some of them on their website to advertise for weddings! Carrie's prices are fair, her work is extraordinary, and her personality is amazing. I'd recommend her to everyone! -Deanna Snitzer
I had engagement photos done, and I just love them! I can't believe that there wasn't one that I didn't like. They brought tears to my eyes and my fiancé thought they were great! -Mary Reinhardt
Carrie Swails photographed our fall mountain wedding and we truly had a fantastic time! The photos really captured the love and joy of the day and I can't thank her enough for managing to be there for everything while also remaining discreet. I'm so glad we found such a talented photographer with such an eye for the moment. We will treasure these beautiful photos forever! -Michelle Briley


One perk I need to mention is that Carrie offers boudoir shoot discounts with a booked wedding. That means you can give your partner a very liberating and personal gift, or even get them done together. Superhero cosplay boudoir shoot, anyone? Speaking of which, did you miss Mary's Black Cat from Spider-Man cosplay shoot? Carrie is open to all your ideas.

Carrie lists a TARDIS as a “something blue” on her website, so it's pretty clear that she'll be embracing your Doctor Who centerpieces, rustic chic barn venue, and rockabilly carnival wedding without missing a beat. Go now and be one with your new photographer best buddy by booking Carrie Swails Photography for your Colorado (or destination!) wedding.

    Seriously though, she shot my wedding this summer. So great to work with, my husband and I are super-awkward but she somehow got us to relax and the photos turned out great.
