Nice to meet you - I'm Carly!
I am so happy you've made it to this page! I am a photographer based in Chilliwack, BC. I am currently finishing up my fourth year of University (woo!! almost done!) where I have been finishing up an extended minor in visual arts. This is where I've fallen in love with the creativity of digital and film photography...
A few fun facts about me: I just got married last summer! And as you may or may not have seen we bought a VW van! We've spent most of our free time converting it into the ultimate camping vehicle. If you book with me, there's a good chance you'll catch me driving this sweet thing ;)
I truly value great friendships and pretty landscapes, so a job where I get to encapsulate all that into photos is a dream come true. Moments like these bring great joy as my job is to capture the true and authentic version of you and your loved ones! If this is something that interests you I would love to chat more :)
The reason behind branch + vine studios:
John 15:5 says “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.”
I love this verse for two reasons:
One is the imagery. I absolutely love nature and can become so easily awestruck by God’s creation. Pretty sunsets, grassy fields, mountainy landscapes, oceans, rivers, trails (there’s so much more)! Vines and branches are commonly found in the places I love…the places I get to photograph!
Secondly, Jesus shares some pretty cool reasoning behind this imagery. He shares the relationship between the vine (Him) and the branches (us). By faith, it’s important that we stay connected to Christ every second of every day so that we can live the most God-honouring and abundant living life out there. This is where we will find peace and fruitfulness in Christ. We are God’s handiwork. Apart from Him, we can do nothing. My goal is to keep Christ at the center while meeting new faces (like you!) and photographing them in the most beautiful places that He created.
