ABOUT SLL

ABOUT CARRIE G. ☽

LEAD PHOTOG | OWNER | CAT-MOM | TYPE 4 | PSYCH NERD

 

Hey there! I'm the owner/lead photographer.

I grew up in southern California and came out here to compete on the forensics team (speech and debate) for WKU. Little did I know that I would be paired as duo partners with my future husband (Ganer, check him out below) and I'd very much make a home for myself here. I had every intention of continuing my research interests in cognitive psychology, but photography turned out to be a calling I couldn't ignore. A self-taught skill I grew up perfecting since childhood, photography is very much my love language.

With hundreds of galleries delivered, I'm happy to say this has my full time career. I will celebrate 10 years this year of business!

 

In working with me, you'll get an attentive experience. I'm patient, enthusiastic, sensitive, and extroverted.

I'm also passionate about social justice, bringing fairness to BG, body positivity, and community over competition.

 

You can win my heart with cat memes, oldies, quality time, and big hugs.

ABOUT GANER LEE⚜️

LEAD ASSOCIATE | LOUISIANA NATIVE | TYPE 7 | COOK | COACH

 

Hey gang! I’m Carrie’s ride or die partner and who frequently assists as a second shooter for SLL. I’m originally from cajun country in southern Louisiana, a place where no one passes up on an opportunity to celebrate with friends and loved ones! I specialize in capturing candid photos of you laughing until your crying (or crying until your laughing) with your wedding party, holding your grandma’s hand, rolling your eyes at dad’s dad joke, or stealing a kiss from your new spouse. I love delivering photos no one knew I was taking. I also serve as Carrie’s bag hauler, occasional bouquet holder, and all around hype man for the big day.

 

When I’m not helping Carrie document our amazing couples, I direct a collegiate speech and debate program. I’m also an amateur chef, pretentious film buff, and a proud cat dad.

TOGETHER

We love movies, taking our cat out in her stroller, Netflix, debate, NPR, Louisiana, California, elaborate dinners, wine, social movements, hosting, company, beaches, walks, weird voices, writing, big windows, dancing,

& generally being over the top.

OH YEAH. AND WE ARE MARRIED. It was an intimate, fantastic celebration in New Orleans, LA. We had a very tiny and tight budget but our loved ones moved mountains to make it all happen.  We believe more than ever that wedding planning should be personal, healthy, and balanced. We believe a wedding can be magical if you focus on making it meaningful. The best parts (hugs, dancing, a powerful ceremony) cannot be bought.  Check out more of our wedding weekend here!

Our story continues in our recently purchased bungalow, built in 1920 and in need of a lot of love! When we aren’t running around documenting love and coaching speech and debate, we are probably cozied up here, with our cat, thinking of the next project to work on.

 

Thank you to the amazing Monica Muñoz for these photos of us from our wedding day and engagement session! You understand our hearts so well.
