Raya Carlisle Photography


I hope everyone had a great weekend! I have a sweet winter wedding coming up next, but before jumping into posts for the day wanted to give a shout out to one of our lovely sponsors, Raya Carlisle Photography.

I was asked the other day what I want my photography to feel like. The first thing I thought of is a smile. I grew up in a sunny Northern California beach town among many creative people including my own parents. There are so many lovely memories of creating, from homemade board games to thrifted prom dresses to waking up to my dad’s violin.  I thank this creativity-infused, happy life for influencing the images I create now.  I live to capture beauty in everything and above all hope my photographs bring smiles.





Even though Raya is based in Southern California, she is up for traveling anywhere to shoot your wedding. To see more of Raya’s beautiful photography, check out her website and super cute blog.
