MEET THE CARRS
Nestled in the heart of the Midwest, Michael and Grace have built The Carrs & Co Photography House as a place where stories become reality and people feel at home.
“We are not your typical husband and wife photography duo. This entrepreneurial journey as “The Carrs” began in 2006; newlyweds with no idea how to run a business. We had passion and a dream — yep, that’s it. To be honest, we took the hard road. But we’re thankful we did. Our failures, triumphs, and everything in between turned our dream into an adventure.
We love what we do. We’ve never thrown in the towel. Why? It’s pretty simple…
WE LOVE PEOPLe
We’ve grown since then, but our dream is the same: share ourselves and our joy with the world, one couple, one celebration, one family, at a time. All you really need to know about us can be found inside a box of doughnuts!”

WHAT THE HECK IS A PHOTOGRAPHY HOUSE?
Not your momma's wedding photographer, that's for sure
IN THEIR WORDS
The Carrs took everything unique and special about our story and told it through pictures. I’ve never had so many people ask me who my photographer was because of how much they loved our photos... The planning process was a breeze with Grace. I live 450 miles away and felt comfortable from start to finish in Grace’s hands. She had great insight into places to get bridal party shots at our location and made every aspect easy.
We absolutely adored working with the Carrs during our engagement and on our wedding day. Grace was unbelievably friendly, responsive and thorough during the planning process and our images from Michael and Alex are stunning. I could not recommend their work enough, definitely the best decision we made during wedding planning
Love everything about this group. Our wedding photos turned out beautifully, the entire team was so helpful and Josh really made the day of the wedding relaxed/calm when it came to taking all the pictures. I couldn't ask for a better photographer!
Our pictures couldn’t have turned out better! I have so many friends who have been disappointed with their wedding photos in the past and I know I can be picky about pictures of myself so I knew it was one of the most important services to consider for our wedding. Seriously, don’t skimp on this part! . Our photographer was Kera and we loved her! Your photographer is around you most of the day so you want to feel relaxed with them and you definitely will with Kera.
“It is hard to put into words how wonderful I think The Carrs are, as photographers and as people. Michael Carr is unbelievably talented with such a unique and artistic eye. He truly made my wedding day look like it was from a movie. Michael and Joanna captured moments that I didn’t even know happened, such as my mom’s expression during my father-daughter dance, which truly made my heart ache with happiness. Your photos will be stunning, unique, emotional, and something you will cherish for the rest of your lives. Another element that The Carrs offer is their professionalism which stems from vast experience in the industry. Grace, who is a true sweetheart (and fashionista!), met with my husband and me long before the wedding to schedule our “day of” timeline down to the minute. The day of, Michael kept everyone on track and made our day completely stress-free. His personable and kind demeanor set the tone for our photo sessions. My mom and all of my bridesmaids complimented Michael and Joanna, expressing how wonderful they were to be around, which was important because they were with us all day and night! Joanna even held my dress through the snow like a friend would! The Carrs take one-of-a-kind photographs that you can’t get from anyone else. They put genuine care into making sure your wedding day is perfect in so many ways.”
The Carrs are the best in the business. Incredibly talented, extremely kind, and a breeze to work with! Thanks to Michael we have pictures from our engagement and wedding that truly captured the moment and they are pictures that we will cherish for a lifetime.
