...Let me CAPTURE

Life moves fast. Let's work together to tell your story. 





why do i photograph?

I like to think of photography as my superpower.

The ability to stop a moment in time - to preserve life's most precious moments - is one that I will never take for granted.

Whether it be the sunrise over a western canyon or the delight of a bride on her wedding day, I hope my photographs provide a window into seeing the world in a way you never have before.

hi, there!

-A follower of Jesus
-A proud graduate of Florida State University
-A wannabe foodie 

After college, I spent two years as FL Governor Rick Scott's photographer, and most recently photographed FL Governor Ron DeSantis' gubernatorial campaign.

When I'm not photographing, you will likely find me either buying fresh flowers, perusing the J.Crew sale section, or hanging with my three nieces - Adeline, Elsie, and Cecelia.

Carolyn is amazing! She did our photography for our engagement as well as our wedding and she did a fantastic job! She made us feel comfortable and captured our personalities, as well as the beauty, excitement, and joy of our wedding day. Carolyn has great talent and an eye for detail. We recommend her as often as possible and plan to contact her for other photography we may need in the future!

Carolyn is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet! She takes the time to get to know you and truly cares about all of her brides and grooms. She was very responsive and professional.

Our photos were beautiful and we got them back quicker than anticipated. I would highly recommend Carolyn if you are looking for a photographer for your wedding (or any event for that matter)!

Carolyn did such an amazing job photographing our wedding! She took our engagement photos prior to our wedding and we knew then that we had made the right choice. She is so kind and easy going and she really makes you feel comfortable while being photographed. All of our wedding party commented on how great she was to work with. Her photographs are beautiful and they capture each moment perfectly. Can't wait to use her again for a future photography session!

Carolyn is one of those people who is both professional and personable. She really listens to what her clients want and also guides them with her expert advice. We loved working with Carolyn because she has a calming personality that provides an anchor to the busyness of wedding preparations. Her photos are also timeless and intimate - we cannot wait to have them displayed in our home for decades to come! I would absolutely recommend Carolyn to any brides out there!

We interviewed half a dozen photographers, but we are so happy that we held out for Carolyn. She exudes professionalism and made us feel comfortable from start to finish. She took the time to talk to us and learn "our story." We didn't meet in person until the big day, but when she arrived, it felt like seeing an old friend. In fact, that's what it felt like all day. 

The morning after the wedding, before seeing any of the pictures, all of our friends and family were telling us how great they thought she was. We agreed with them, but after Carolyn had completed editing all of our pictures we loved her even more! We have friends that waited over six months to get their wedding pictures back, but that was not our experience. Exactly one month after our wedding, half the time that was guaranteed in our contract, we had hundreds of breathtaking photos.

I stumbled across Carolyn's photography through a mutual friend and immediately knew I wanted her to capture our wedding. Carolyn did such an amazing job making forever memories of our special day; I cannot tell you how many compliments we get when people enter our home and see her handiwork on display! She is professional, patient, punctual, and has such a sweet heart. There are so many choices of photographers for your special day, but I highly recommend Carolyn Allen Photography; you won't regret it!

Carolyn is one of a kind! I was nervous when it came to hiring a reliable, trustworthy, professional photographer and got all this and more from Carolyn. She took the time to understand our vision and truly captured it. She's organized and helped me along the entire process. I felt confident on my wedding day that I had nothing to worry about with photography and it was all taken care of. She worked well with other vendors at our wedding especially our videographer and everything ran smoothly.

I received countless compliments on our photos. One friend even made sure to book Carolyn for her wedding. I cannot say enough good things about Carolyn and am so happy she was with us on our special day!!

The grand Oaks Resort Wedding

Before our engagement photos, my fiancé casually said "good photographers come a dime a dozen". Then he met Carolyn. I never thought the day I'd take engagement photos would be one of the most memorable and precious days of my life. Carolyn made it just that. Time moves fast, our engagement is moving even faster, and soon I'll be his wife and all of this will be history. But thanks to Carolyn, I'll never forget exactly what this time felt like because her photos will always bring me back to this day. Good photographers...are priceless. Thank you, Miss Allen! You truly are something else.

memorable & precious days of my life"
