That despite the put-together outfit you’ll see me wear if I get to photograph you, I am probably wearing my PJs right now, and they probably have food stains smeared on them from my kids. I have a goofy 5 year old, a sweet-tempered 1 year old, and a third baby girl due in June (hellooooo sleep deprivation). My girls are the most chaotic, colorful, best parts of my life.
I used to play roller derby (on the track I was Chaos Rain) and now I coach our local Syracuse league.
The past two years have been spent trying to keep my head above the water. The pandemonium has been a wild ride, and if you’ve also been going *through* it, I see you.
My dream is to live on a homestead and grow my own food, but I would probably die because I have a black thumb.
“Caly’s eye for detail, light, and color is unmatched. She went above and beyond for us, and in addition to being an amazing wedding photographer she is such a kind person. I can’t imagine having had anyone else photograph our wedding. Her work truly is timeless and breathtaking.”
I will go to the ends of the earth to help you feel comfortable and at ease in front of my camera, especially on your wedding day. When things go wrong, I will be a source of calm, lend a hand, and keep things moving, so you can actually relax and enjoy your time with your guests.
Time-keeper — Your day should be spent living it up with the lovely guests you invited, not anxiously watching the clock. I work very efficiently to get the photos you need taken care of, so you can get back to enjoying your friends and family.
Make-shift therapist — If things get stressful or run behind, I’ll remind you that it’s going to be okay, and I always have a spare pack of tissues in my bag.
Orchestrator — Those group photos with you and your family? We’ll get ‘em done the right way, and we’ll do it quickly (even before uncle Bob wanders off to find the cheese station).
Artist — I studied film, photography, and visual arts at Ithaca college, and have been in the industry for 12 years. Using my creativity and experience to give your special moments back to you is my art form.
