Hi, I am Carley Scott.
I have lived in Washington my whole life and absolutely love this beautiful green state! I grew up right across the bridge from Portland, then moved to Seattle for 6 years, and now I'm back in Vancouver!
For as long as I can remember, I've loved to take pictures. I got my first little film camera for Christmas when I was 8 years old. Looking for things to photograph filled me with so much joy and I would be giddy with excitement when my mom would bring home the developed photos for me to look through. As I got older (and updated cameras) I developed a passion for taking photos outside, exploring new places, and capturing intimate moments between people.
I'm a bit of a hopeless romantic... I love rom coms, poetry, and love songs. Mountains are my absolute favorite, probably because I grew up camping and hiking all over the Pacific Northwest. I feel so lucky that my work allows me to combine all of my passions; photographing couples on their big day, someplace beautiful!
My Love Story
Ryan and I met sometime in middle school through mutual friends at church, and I never would have guessed he would one day be my husband. In high school we went to prom together as friends, then we both ended up at Seattle Pacific University for college. We stayed friends for the next few years until he asked me out our Junior year of college. Ryan proposed on January 1st, 2020 at Discovery Park (the same spot he asked me to be his girlfriend).
On July 28th, 2020, we eloped at Mount Hood. It was not the wedding we planned for but it turned out to be so special and intimate in the best way possible! If there are any other Covid brides out there... I FEEL YOU! From personal experience, I would recommend eloping to anyone thinking about it! There is so much more freedom when it comes to picking a location and the day of is so fun and personal. My positive experience has inspired me to want to capture those special, once in a lifetime moments for other adventurous couples like us!
