Your wedding day will be full of many wonderful moments which, through photography, you can cherish forever. As a wedding photojournalist, I'm your storyteller, an observer with a camera etching history on film.
My mission is to capture and preserve the moments which make your day special; all the love, joy, beauty, smiles, tears, and the energy which is created during such festive occasions.
Rather than assuming the role of a producer and controlling events, I unobtrusively and quietly document my subjects, who are essentially unaware of my presence. I have found, during over two decades as a photojournalist, that this is the most effective way to make compelling images reflecting the essence of an event.
Although I work in the style outlined above, I also shoot the traditional groupings. I'll do as many or as few as you wish and try to do it in an efficient and timely manner to maximize your time with your guests.
I strive to make these pictures in a lively and visually interesting way. I arrive early and stay late striving to document the entire story. My shooting is unlimited and I'm always working. I've learned this ethic is mandatory to comprehensively telling a complete visual story.
Maine Wedding Photographer Carl Walsh has been a professional photojournalist since 1984. His work is driven by a strong desire to experience and document life through interaction with others.
Over the years, it has brought him in contact with people from a wide socioeconomic range, from indigenous tribes in remote parts of Madagascar, to popes and presidents. His editorial clients include Audubon, Business Week, National Geographic Traveler, People, Smithsonian, Time, U.S. News & World Report and Yankee magazine, among others.
Since 1993, Carl has been utilizing the same skill and proficiency, which earned the trust of these prestigious publications, to dynamically document wedding day festivities for couples from across the nation.
Carl's Maine wedding photography has won multiple honors with the Wedding Photojournalists Association, a select group of the nation's top wedding photojournalists.
When Carl isn't working, he can often be found skiing the slopes in the northeast, fishing for striped bass in coastal waters, mountain biking on forested trails or tossing frisbees for his dog Maya.
