"Carly Romeo & Co was EVERYTHING I wanted and more in a wedding photographer. They captured all the fun, intimate, chaotic, hilarious, and touching moments of the day, while also highlighting all of the little things that made our wedding unique. Sneaking away for a golden hour couple photo shoot ended up being such a special time for us to exhale and ground ourselves amidst the craziness. Carly has an uncanny ability of tricking you into thinking you're just chatting with your new spouse but little do you know that you are actually GLOWING and looking so chic and natural in all your new favorite photos. Needless to say, her final product wowed us.... Her timing and eye for detail was impeccable! We loved all of the candid shots of the mixing and mingling of all of our guests, as well as some epic dance floor pics. Our friends and family are still raving about the pics and we're daily discovering new favorites. Worth every penny!”

"You even make an ugly cry look beautiful!" — Ernesto + Max
"If you are looking for someone who takes awesome photos, knows how to direct a shoot, but isn't dominating, go with Carly. She quickly adapted to our quirky Vietnamese-Jewish-Afghan theme and documented not only the details we wanted but also all the surprising and subtle moments that we couldn't ourselves imagine. We got rave reviews from many guests and her candid photos were spot on. Couldn't be more pleased; highly recommended." — Yen + Scott
"We have never come across another photographer so skilled at capturing the genuine essence of a couple. The little things you do with one another, that are usually just your secret--the glances, the secret handshake-type things—Carly gets right in there and freezes those moments that are usually just between the two of you. Her skill is priceless." — Sarah + Matt
"Carly is ebullient, so enjoyable to be around, but totally even-keeled. Weddings are crazy. You want a flexible, adaptable, easy going photographer. My family loves Carly after our wedding—she climbed a twelve foot ladder to get a few shots that my now-husband wanted, which was a neat party trick that impressed everyone. She accommodates guests as well as she can, while keeping her priority on the bride and groom. Carly runs a smart, compassionate, woman-owned business with values that resonate. She is always striving to do better. Do not wait to book this photographer! Carly—thank you."

"We feel so lucky to know Carly, let alone to have had her shoot our wedding. I knew I wanted beautiful photos in a photojournalistic style (i.e. not posed and people-focused), but those photographers were super pricey. Carly was technically overbudget, but it was such an easy decision to go over when we hired her because we loved her so much; now I realize we got lucky in getting the same quality for an unbelievable price. She was by far the best wedding-related decision we made, but the quality of her photos is the least of it, outweighed by her experience and efficiency, deft touch with people, and thoughtfulness about marriage generally. I fell in like with her in reading her (smart but not preachy) views on marriage equality and feminism, and that feeling was cemented in person. Closer to the wedding, I just wanted it all over with because our caterer was awful to deal with, and Carly was so sympathetic and upbeat. The day of, Carly took the usual great shots (groom crying at altar as I came down the aisle) but also elicited happy photos from surly in-laws, all while moving everything along quickly. Speaking of: trust her expertise! I was against portraits, but not only did she get great pictures of my husband and I (the least photogenic people ever) by asking questions or chatting to keep us from thinking/smiling awkwardly, she even got great shots with our dogs (incl. the 2x they looked up at the same time). Moreover, the 20 minutes we spent walking from the church to the venue taking portraits were the calmest, happiest ones of the whole day. Even my hyperlogical math teacher dad called her “amazing” and “at one with the spirit of the day.” Finally, her eye is extraordinary. Some of my favorite pictures are of details (compositions?) that never would have occurred to me, like a shot of a vintage window decal in the jazz club hosting the reception, then another through the same window, with the Baltimore skyline background in focus and the decal out of focus." — Julie + Rob
