Behind Our Lens

We are a Sterling, Virginia couple photography team. We want you to leave your time with us with more than just beautiful images but great memories too. We are so blessed to be able to share our gift with such special people, but most of all that we get to work together every day. We work hard to give you images that you not only like but LOVE.


We are Kyle + Carly, a couple photography team and we are so glad you have found us!
Choosing a photographer is very important so we thought you might want to know a little bit about what makes us click (LOL get it click!). Ok enough with the bad photography jokes! Who are we?...we are a creative couple who love our 2 dogs Bailey and Lewlew, our wonderful family, meeting new people, and exploring every aspect of the art of photography. We have been together since 2006 and we know each other so well that we work in-sync. Our love has weathered through bad times and good times and because of that we have a bond that can't be broken. We can almost read each others minds and we finish each others sentences. We pull the best out of each other and push each other creatively, professionally, and in every day life. When we both realized that we could work together while doing what we really love to do, we knew that we had something really special.
Since we are a team you get the benefit of getting both of us for the price of one,
it can't get better than that!
Time and time again we see photography that although was taken with the best equipment and by photographers who follow every proper rule of composition and exposure, but we often notice that we feel something is missing......EMOTION! We want to create photography that takes you back to the very moment the picture was taken.
Photography that exudes feeling, feeling that inspires art.
We strive to take photos that create an undeniable reaction to the emotion we capture in our clients. Now there is nothing wrong with the latest and greatest photography equipment, we use the top of the line gear to capture our photos. Great gear does not guarantee great photos, we think outside of the box and adjust for each situation in order to get those great shots full of that authentic emotion that we seek. Every session has different lighting, backdrops, and most importantly different subjects, which leads to every image being one-of-a-kind.
So who does what?
We obviously are both photographers but each of us have our different specialties. Kyle is our lighting guru. He makes getting the perfect lighting in the most difficult situations look like a breeze. Carly is more into posing, or as we say "un-posing". She loves those candid moments that no one else gets to see. She makes sure we get to know what makes every relationship tick and guides the sessions so we can convey what makes you special into our beautiful images.
What do we love most about our job, you ask?
Being able to be a part of the most precious moments in so many families lives and giving them the gift of freezing time so they can relive those moments forever and share them with generations to come. That is what makes our job the best!
Seeing the tear fall down a brides cheek while her father walks her down the isle...... the couple bursting into laughter as they accidentally step on each others feet during an engagement session...... the side-splitting laughter of a little boy when his father tickles him in a pile of leaves...... the awe in the eyes of new parents as they watch their newborn baby sleep......
This is what we live for and these are the moments we want to channel for you.
We understand that we are asking you to allow us to be involved in the most intimate moments of life and that this is not always the easiest thing to get used to. We want you to feel confident that you are in the best hands and that we will take care of you every step of the way.
We love working with people who love to laugh and can laugh at themselves because we want you to feel loose and comfortable, but most importantly have fun!
We love to tell jokes (most of them bad) and we may leave a little sweaty, but we will not end any session until we feel we have delivered exactly what you were expecting and then some.
We can't wait to meet you and your family and welcome you into our family,
the Imprinted family!
