Welcome to Crazy Happy Love
delightfully cheerful wedding photography
Crazy Happy Love photography is all about capturing your wedding day as it happens – the little details and moments which make it special and the things you might miss as you’re too busy having the time of your lives. I’m Carrie and I’m an alternative wedding photographer based in Belfast. Shooting in a relaxed, documentary style to capture creative images with colour and emotion. I want to get you photos which show the big moments and little details. And let’s not forget the epic dance floor moves your uncle bob threw which you will look back on for years to come and smile. No cheesy poses or disappearing for three hours to get a photo up a mountain.
Whether your day is a tiny intimate ceremony or a larger affair, I work around you to make sure you get the best possible images. I also work quickly to make sure you get the most possible time to celebrate with your family and friends.
Hi I'm Carrie
Thanks for checking out Crazy Happy Love!
My photography career started shooting gigs and musicians 2 decades ago when I was still studying photography at college. I first fell in love with photography when I was in school. I always loved art and photography was a new way to create. It also served as a way to get out of maths class by hiding in the darkroom because nobody ever checked there. Needless to say I am still terrible at maths but the photography worked out ok so it’s all good!! After a brief phase photographing old buildings and street art like all art students do, I quickly realised that I LOVED working with people. What better way to meet lots of amazing new people than through photographing their happiest moments – weddings, engagements and family events. In my career I’ve shot everyone from Taylor Swift to ACDC but weddings are a really special chance to photograph images people will treasure for years to come (and your ears ring less afterwards!)
If I had to describe my style I’d say it was relaxed, honest and fun. I’m very much an alternative wedding photographer – no cheesy poses and hours standing in front of a camera. My plan is to have you smiling and laughing during your photo shoot because photos should be fun. I focus on capturing moments rather than poses but don’t worry, I’ll always give a little direction when needed to make sure you look your best. Everyone tells me they hate being photographed but I promise I’ll make it fun and relaxed.
Every wedding is unique and I love hearing about your plans and capturing the details of the day. I’ve been lucky enough to shoot so many different types of wedding – traditional ceremonies, civil partnerships, Indian and Chinese weddings and even pagan ceremonies. It’s such an honour to be a part of the day. I always like to get to know a bit about my couples before their day. You can find out so much over a hot cuppa and it gives me a chance to show you sample albums and discover what you really want out of your wedding photography. Have a look through the site to see the style of my work and get some inspiration. If you like what you see please do get in touch to have a proper chat about your big day.
