01 about


  Welcome !

I'm Carrie Cantrell, 7w6, free-spirited visual story teller and owner of Carrie Ellen Photography serving West and Middle Tennessee. I love the Lord, my two sons and my Scottie, Stella. Family comes first. I'm a dreamer, an avid sunset chaser and music lover. I like adventure, candid moments,  being outside, deep conversations, playfulness, true crime, quotes and road trips. Iced coffee, chips and salsa, fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and strawberry pie are just a few of my favorite treats. 

Established in 2015, my speciality is wedding and lifestyle photography.With a photojournalistic approach, I capture the honest, playful and tender moments of love. My sessions are client-led allowing the session to unfold naturally rather than forcing poses.  From newborns to weddings, I absolutely love this passion of mine. Your big moments are my big moments, I celebrate when you do, cry, laugh and pray with you.  
My mission is to provide a fun, non-traditional, stress-free experience while capturing the honest, natural, fleeting moments that define your unique story.

My philosophy: I believe the images captured are your memories, not mine. You will receive a personalized online gallery with all of the edited images to print or download as well as printing rights. 

My photography style has been defined as; timeless, warm, romantic and full of life. 

Let me tell your story!

xo,  carrie
