  • f8 Photo Studios is THE best! Cara is incredibly talented. She did my engagement and wedding photos. On both days, it was insanely hot outside and somehow she managed to make everyone look amazing. She gets the job done, gets THE picture, and truly knows how to capture the moment. I would recommend her to anyone truly. We couldn't be happier with our pictures and will cherish them forever. Thank you f8!

  • When looking for wedding photographers, the photos from f8 Photo Studios (Cara and Adrienne) were the style of photography we wanted because they were crisp and natural. After meeting with Cara, we knew we wanted them to photograph not only our wedding but also our engagement photos. We picked the package with the associate photographer, Adrienne, and met her for our engagement photo session. With a short conversation we connected with Adrienne quickly and the photos turned out amazing. When it came to the wedding day, Adrienne and her second shooter captured every moment we could have possibly wanted as well as being able to deal with our easily distractible family. The photos from the first look still make me cry every time I look at them. Adrienne even stayed later than scheduled to capture our exit. We ended up quickly receiving over 800 incredible wedding photos. It is still difficult to narrow down our favorites since every detail is so remarkable. Thank you, Adrienne, for cap... Read more

  • I worked with Cara for my October 2019 wedding, and she and her team were fantastic! Cara worked with me to stay within my budget and she was fun and delightful to partner with. Our photographer, Lindsay, made my husband and I feel at ease and helped us work out the jitters and stiffness in our portrait session. Lindsay kept us on track and took beautiful images of our celebration. I am thrilled with how our sneak peak photos turned out and look forward to seeing more. I live in Maine and planned a wedding in Raleigh, NC. Cara and Lindsay made it easy to plan from afar over phone and email.

  • We couldn't have asked for a better photographer! Cara's partner, Adrienne, did our engagement session and wedding day (with Lacy!!) - made taking 100s of pictures FUN, we were laughing the entire time. We've loved looking through our gallery and continuously receive compliments about our incredible pictures! Both Cara and Adrienne were absolutely incredible to work with - made the entire process easy, which is a bride's dream among all the wedding planning! A photographer is one of the biggest decisions throughout planning, if not the biggest, and we are SO happy we chose F8 to be a part of our special day. Thank you!!

  • F8 Photo Studios did such an amazing job on our wedding photos! Cara is so much fun to work with and makes you feel like a model! She was so efficient organizing the family pictures we wanted and she captured all of our favorite moments throughout the night. We loved working with her and totally recommend her for your wedding photography!

  • We're very happy to have had Cara photograph our wedding. We keep looking back at our photos and love how they really capture the beauty of everything and helped make us look great! Meeting Cara for our engagement photos was great because it gave us an opportunity to see how she worked and be more relaxed on our wedding day since we weren't total strangers. She also is fun and jokes around to make you relax and smile the whole time. My husband is a photographer himself, so Cara went above and beyond by scouting out our venue the day before and taking some great shots of the beautiful scenery! It wasn't something she had to do but was such a thoughtful way to show she cared. On the day of, she was great and both made everyone feel at ease while also keeping them in line to ensure we stayed on time and got all the photos we wanted. She was good to work with because she took input from us and also made her own suggestions so that we could come to an agreement on what shots we ... Read more

  • What an amazing experience all around. Cara was phenomenal to talk to and I felt like she really "got me". Adrienne was so fun to work with and took some amazing photos. We did an engagement shoot first and she really put my husband and I at ease. We had so much fun!! Throughout the process she was so available and responsive. And really took the time to get to know us. Then, when the wedding rolled around it was smooth sailing. The formal pictures went so quickly because we had really planned it all out ahead of time. I got the pictures back super quickly which was a huge surprise! When I saw all the candid ones that captured all of the different and beautiful emotions of the day I was truly blown away. It was exactly what I had hoped for. Really awesome job.

  • It was great to work with Adrienne and f8. She put us at ease during our initial meeting, months ahead of the wedding, by really explaining the photo package and her style clearly. Then, once the wedding was getting closer, Adrienne reached out with helpful planning docs. I really appreciated how she made sure to know exactly what family photos we wanted, even checking whether there were any family dynamics she shoudl know abut to avoid any awkwardness (none in my case, but I appreciated the ask!). She was clear about the timeline we would need to get the photos we wanted so that we were able to coordinate with our makeup artist as well. On the day of, Adrienne's easy energy and sense of humor kept everyone smiling even when our cheeks were starting to hurt! We had to stay indoors for most of the pics because of the rain, but later on she still managed to get us out for some nighttime shots that came out great. I just got my full set of photos back and am LOVING them. Along with the po... Read more

  • Amazing! We were so lucky to have Cara and Lacey shoot our wedding. They were so fun on the day of, making everyone feel comfortable and even getting smiles out of my dad! They caught moments that we missed during the day, but got to see all of it through the amazing pictures! I am in love with our photos and recommend f8 photo studios to anyone! You could tell Cara truly cared about being part of our day and made it so special! Thank you thank you!

  • I was so happy with the responsiveness, helpfulness, & more from f8 I posted a review before even having a photo session. After that, we had an engagement session that was honestly one of the best wedding-related decisions I made. I usually hate taking pictures but Adrienne made it so much fun! We would have been excited going into the wedding based on her personality alone, but the pictures-oh my gosh. They are perfect. Cool angles, beautiful light, I don't know enough about photography to know exactly why they're that good, I just know I love them. One of my favorite compliments about them was that we look just like us, not a fake version of us. For the wedding, I can't say enough to properly thank the whole team for everything they did that day & for all the effort leading up to it. Cara answered emails immediately, spent SO much time helping me with the whole planning process, then once we were connected with Adrienne she spent several hours with us over phone & email. She handled ... Read more

  • It's not possible to overstate how much I appreciate Cara & Adrienne with f8! My wedding isn't until August, so I can't speak to the actual photos yet, but the amount of effort and support they've already put in completely warrants a 5 star review. I'd give them 10 stars, if that was an option. I have obsessively researched every vendor we're using and the pressure of making the right investment can be so stressful, but within a few minutes of talking to Cara I already felt so relieved, and as the planning process continues I have felt more and more confident that I made such a good choice! Cara mentioned early on that they want their clients to feel like they're a friend hanging out instead of feeling like some stranger is pointing a camera at them all day, and I can say with complete certainty she and Adrienne have 100% accomplished that, and the big day isn't even here yet! They both have this amazing mix of being down to earth but also so professional and knowledgeable at the same ... Read more
