I not only throw myself into documenting and capturing moments that won't happen again, but I tell a story with the images. I pay strict attention to detail, during the session and in the retouching/editing process. My clients end up being my friends, and I love maintaining that relationship.
"Carrie's work is displayed all over my house. Not your typical pose and shoot photographer, she creates INTERESTING pictures that capture emotions and feelings. Some of her pictures even seem to tell a story. Very professional in getting you what you want and doesn't take forever to get things back to you. Plus, she's a blast to work with!"
~~ Joanna D / Family & Maternity sessions
"Carrie is a rare larger than life photographer extraordinaire!! She knows how to really push the envelope or can work inside the box. I enjoyed shooting with her so much. Nobody was disappointed in the pictures she took. I was extremely satisfied with her work. You'd be a fool to pass up on Carrie."

"Carrie did an amazing job of capturing our family. With two young boys, they want to be active. Her candid photos were fabulous. She made us all feel so comfortable and at ease. Loved her!" ~~ Courtney S. / Family session
"There really are not enough good things to say about Carrie. She has an absolute amazing soul, making photography fun with her outgoing personality. Carrie took pictures of both me and my daughter while she was visiting in Las Vegas. We were beyond thrilled with the outcome. She made a simple day in the desert look beyond vibrant. The Las Vegas desert was turned into the perfect location for our mother daughter pictures. She was not afraid to get down in the dirt to get the perfect picture and created miracle photographs out of the most simple things. Carrie just has that eye for photography. As we were driving she scouted out the perfect place for the most jaw dropping photographs. She really has this ability to capture your special moments in the most unique ways. If you are looking for a creative, outgoing, unique photographer who will provide you with the most extraordinary pictures then Carrie is your gal. She will leave you staring at your photographs for hours wondering how you can possibly look that good!! "I know I did". Carrie Hampton has our highest recommendations. She is simply the best!"~~ Moana K. / Mother & Daughter session

"Carrie Hampton is an amazing photographer and person. The second I met her I knew we would have so much fun and she made me feel absolutely beautiful. She definitely knows what she is doing behind the camera! I learned so much from her. She kept our wedding day fun and my cheeks hurt so bad from laughing and smiling so much! I will most definitely work with her again and again.. And again."
~~ Yasmine / Wedding
"Carrie does it all! She is an amazing photographer! You will be treated like a friend and her turnaround time is faster than any photographer I have seen. She didn't nickel and dime us to death either. She really gave us so much of her time and attention to detail. The wedding album we ordered through her she also created herself, page by page, and it brought tears to my eyes."
~~ Vanessa L. / Wedding
" I'm just a cake designer. But she did engagement and wedding photos for a friend and they were nothing short of phenomenal. Her work is artistically on point, and she NAILS the art of story-telling! I've never actually seen work like hers in this area. There are a million photographers in Boise, but nothing quite like Carrie."
