more about our team

Our team has photographed weddings across the country since 2018. We pride ourselves on being reliable & trustworthy, because you deserve both beautiful images AND an intimate experience that leaves you feeling safe & supported all along the way.




After I started photographing more travel weddings and Austin and I moved to Idaho, I knew I needed to build a team to continue serving our Utah couples.

These ladies are the best of the best! They pose and choose light just like I do, then I edit all of images so you will still get the colorful, bright images you're expecting! Many of the photos on our site and social media have been taken by our team!

Carys was the best investment I made for my wedding!
She caught all of the details of our day beautifully. I had my friend reach out for her own wedding and her pics were beautiful as well.

She's consistent, professional, quick to respond, and just so sweet! We had an issue with my wedding dress not arriving until an hour after my bridal shoot was scheduled, and Carys was so kind and understanding and literally waited for my dress to arrive so that we could still have our shoot that evening! Oh, and she was 35 weeks pregnant through all of this! Again, I can't recommend her enough!

Carys worked with our hectic schedule to fit in a bridal session, and she suggested an amazing location, was insanely detailed and knew all the perfect angles.

Plus, she is so much fun and made us both feel very comfortable and not awkward. She had a quick turnaround time and the photos turned out absolutely amazing! We want to show them off to everyone we know! I would hands down choose Carys again and again for any future photography needs.

Since the first consultation I knew it would be a good experience having Carys as our photographer. I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to shoot our engagements and wedding. Not only was she super fun to work with, the pics are absolutely perfect and we got them back so so so fast!

All of the pictures are incredible, it’s impossible to pick favorites. Our experience was amazing, book with her, you will not regret it!

Hi there, I'm Carys (rhymes with Paris), a small town girl turned wedding and portrait photographer! My team and I focus on creating candid, colorful images, and keeping wedding photography stress-free and fun, from your engagement session to your final gallery. 

I photographed my first wedding when I was 17. Now, this job has taken me to over 14 different states, but my biggest honor in life is getting to be a mama to my little blue eyed boy. 

I'm so glad you're here - you must be getting married, so CONGRATS!

hi, I'm Carys!

I wanted to build a community of photographers that I knew could be TRUSTED to deliver beautiful wedding photos and a quality experience, because I firmly believe that EVERY bride deserves 1-on-1 attention and a personal relationship with their wedding photographer!

 The CHP team was born in 2020, and I am so proud of what we've built. As the owner and lead editor, I edit all of our team galleries, and we all use the same posing and lighting strategies. This means you can expect the same colorful and bright editing style you love from all of us!

Carys was the most amazing wedding photographer! She made the entire process effortless for us and more than enjoyable. Our bridals session was so much fun and Carys kept the fun spirit alive. On our wedding day she went out her way to make sure we had every photo shot we wanted and that everyone was happy and smiling! She even stayed and waiting with us when our family left with our keys so we didn’t have to wait in the hot sun. She arrived early to everything to make sure she got pictures of every single detail. I feel like we built a friendship while she was my photographer and I am so grateful for that. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer. Each of our photos turned out amazing and we will cherish them forever. Thank you, Carys, we are so glad you were out photographer for our special day!
