Meet Carlie Statsky:
My infatuation with photography began with my first backpacking trip to Tasmania when I was a teenager growing up in Australia. I fell in love with the process of slowing down to frame and focus on anything that captivated me, and it seemed magical to me that these tangible photographs somehow added an intangible reverence to that trip. That adventure led me into the adventure of studying and practicing the art of photography, which I know I’ll continue for the rest of my life, because telling people’s stories in an honest and creative way is an objective that will never stop inspiring me.
Since earning a BA in photo-journalism, I’ve worked as a freelance photojournalist, portrait photographer and wedding photographer, with photography exhibitions in Sydney, Barbados, and California. These days I’m focused solely on weddings and portraits and I’ve been honored to have my photography published in many of the leading wedding magazines and blogs. Check out my press section to see some of my recently published work.
My photography has definitely been influenced by my background in photojournalism. I like my images to have a natural and editorial feel to them, and I love to get to know the people I am photographing and get them relaxed in front of a camera by taking a casual approach. I’m open to any ideas you may have for your photo session. I think good things always come from exploring new locations and perspectives.
I shoot every wedding together with the amazing man I married over 10 years ago. Gabe has been an artist since long before I met him. What began as a way to spend more time together, has grown into an strong and dynamic team. After years of shooting weddings together, we know exactly how to compliment the way the other is shooting to capture a wide range of perspectives that help to tell the full story of a wedding day.
