meet carrie

I am Carrie House, owner and photographer of Carrie House photography. I specialize in weddings and portraiture photography. My photography journey started like many others, with a small DSLR to take pictures of my children. I instantly fell in love with capturing the emotions, smiles, and laughter and knew I wanted to take this journey one step further. I am also a math teacher at our local high school, and starting a photography business to keep me busy in the summer was a perfect fit. When people find out that I am a math teacher they are quite surprised that a logical mathematician has a creative side, but I think it helps balance my work and creativity into a nice cohesive blend. I reside in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan but travel all over the state, especially Northern Michigan. I have two small boys that keep me busy and who inspire everything I do and a wonderful husband of almost 7 years who has been so very supportive of my journey and passion for wedding photography.

I absolutely love shooting weddings, and nothing compares to the emotions and excitement when I first arrive at a wedding. Seeing the bride getting hair and makeup done, feeling the excitement in the air, and starting to capture details that each bride has carefully picked out and planned is so much fun. Every bride has a unique style and vision for their day, and it is in this time when I first arrive that I can see their vision come to life and capture their wedding day style. It is truly fun to unzip the bag and see the wedding dress for the first time, to photograph the shoes, and to hear stories about sentimental jewelry or pieces from relatives. This time with the bride sets the tone for the rest of the day and I look forward to it with every wedding. 

So go ahead and fall in love. Fall in love with my work, my images, and me. I want to capture your love in a way that will be passed down for generations and adore by your family, children, and grand children. You should love your wedding images and albums, and I want to make that possible. I believe whole heartedly that marriage is a lifetime commitment and just as important in year 25 as on day one. I believe in capturing the real, true, unabridged emotion throughout your day from the smallest of details, to the biggest of smiles. Telling your story, and falling in love with your story is something I am incredibly passionate about.
