whether it's your family, you and your significant other, your non-profit, or the biggest celebration of your life, Iet's capture your story- together! With a creative, storytelling approach I look forward to creating something stunning together and showcasing your story with excelllence. 


Hi I'm Carly, a Florida native who had the joy of studying photography in the fjords of Norway, + currently residing in Atlanta, GA. I love tacos, getting to know people, making V60 coffee (Ethiopian is my favourite), + embracing unfamiliar cultures. Photography is by far my favorite art form (coffee is a close second) that uniquely communicates how we see the world and offers endless opportunities for growth. 


Why photography? Everyone has a story. Connecting with people around the world and tastefully capturing those stories through photography is my specialty. I like to take a "we're in this together" approach to shoots and create moments, not just poses together with clients. Aside from capturing the beauty of people, my favourite is to showcase the in-between, mundane things and making them beautiful. 


Why Belyst? I'm a words person, so when I learned the word "belyst" in Norwegian meant "illuminated" or to highlight (for lack of a better direct translation), I realised that the word epitomised what I aim to create. To bring light to different parts of who you are- to bring light to your story.

Now let's make some magic!
