🎞 *The first time I shot a film camera* was in 2006 while attending college at @LouisianaTech. I minored in photography and learned to shoot film on a 35mm Nikon I bought on eBay.
👯 *My biggest influence* is my friend + fellow photog, @kristinsweeting, from Nashville. She is so good at shooting film in low light and has rebuilt her business after having a baby and taking time off. She was really worried she wasn’t going to be as successful as she was, but she has come back with a vengeance.
📷 *My favorite tool in my camera bag* is my collapsible lens hood. It’s super cheap and everyone can have one. It saves me from having to use my hand to block the sun to avoid lens flare.
🌍 *Dream photoshoot* I’ve always wanted to go to Europe and shoot with my Contax645, and this year, my dream came true! My husband @stephenalynch and I spent 3 weeks in Italy + Greece. It was so amazing I didn’t want to leave!
🎵 *My pump-up song* is the “Hamilton” soundtrack and anything by Drake.

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 1: I got into photography because of a friend in college. He needed models for a photography project he was doing on movement. I needed an elective, and the way he talked about his photography course intrigued me, so I signed up. I later minored in photography. Fast forward to graduation, I interned for my old Bible study teacher who was a wedding photographer. I laugh now because I said I’d never shoot weddings, but God obviously had other plans. I worked alongside her for 8 months, learning the ins and outs of the business, before I branched out and shot my first wedding on my own. ⚡

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 1: Behind the lens, I feel confident and in control. I second-guess myself a lot in life, but when I’m holding my camera, I know what to do, and I do it quickly and efficiently. 👌 How do you feel behind the lens? I’d love to hear below.

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 1: My favorite thing is proving my couples wrong. Let me explain. So often I hear, “We’re so awkward in front of the camera!” I find that’s almost never the case once we get into the swing of shooting. Delivering photos where joy, confidence and intimacy radiate from my subjects is such a thrill. 🤵💕👰

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 1: One of the most important things about detail shots are the human elements. Don’t get me wrong, I love the simplicity of a ring on an invitation suite. However, what really resonates with clients is their ability to insert themselves into your photographs. I always include images of clients holding or wearing the details from a wedding. If a ring is passed on, it’s so special for the gift-giver to see photos of their loved one wearing that ring on their wedding day. 💍
