What is Weddings by a Carl? How Does It Work?


I graduated from Carleton in 2005. I loved it. Today I work as a photographer from Denver to the midwest to the west coast. My wedding business has been recognized as a Knot Best of Weddings winner along with quite a few other awards.

A few years ago, I found myself thinking about ways to give back. I always have a great time at Carleton weddings. Why not try to work more of them? That was when the idea hit me: I could work with alumni and, together, we could give some of the money from the wedding back to the college.

- I offer a full range of wedding services including day-of photography, engagements, and premium album design. My pricing begins at $2999 and a typical package is between $3500 and $5500. My pricing is all-inclusive; when you contact me for a quote, the number I provide you includes all of my fees.

- If I need to travel for your wedding, I will generally arrive one or two days before your ceremony date. This gives me the chance to see your rehearsal, scout the location, photograph, and depart the day after your wedding. All of my fees, including travel, are contained in the estimate you receive. I make my own arrangements for travel, although I am happy to accommodate requests.

- We give 10% of your package price back to the college, in your name(s). This is specified in our contract and the donation is made after your event. Simple as that.

- Want to file this away for later? I only offer this deal to Carleton alumni, so I keep it tucked away on my website. Make sure you bookmark the link, or remember to ask me about it.


More About Me


I was a philosophy major at Carleton and I did a concentration in media studies. My first professional photography work came from the college when I spent a summer on campus shooting Summer Academic Programs. Today I work full-time as a photographer in Denver, and I often return to photograph Reunion for The Voice.

After Carleton, I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Bangladesh and I began my career as a newspaper photographer. My background is in photojournalism and I work in a style that highlights the natural emotion of your day without getting in the way. If you'd like to see more work, check out my commercial site, or go see some more wedding pictures starting here.

My aim is to get you incredible photographs as we give something back to Carleton. Contact me to learn more, and I can't wait to hear from you!
