Janell & Michele - Maternity


"If I could give ten stars I would. The quality, the professionalism, the value went far beyond our expectations. Marcus absolutely added joy to our lives by sharing his gift of photography with us. We utilized him for a maternity Photoshoot and before it was completed we were thinking of other photoshoots we could have because we were so impressed and satisfied with his work."


If you are looking for photos that express real and authentic emotions and experience you have found the best photographer the moment you book with M. Carter Photography. If you are uncomfortable with having photos taken, worry not because his personality and expertise will have that worry disappear instantly. The best way to capture a moment in time you never want to forget is to work with Marcus and his team.


Lastly, I must say the turnaround time was faster than we could’ve imagined and his communication was seamless. I can stand by the statement that “you will not be disappointed but only feel honored as we were.”

Kevin & Upasana - Wedding


We were lucky enough to see Marcus’s final product for a friend’s engagement shoot and I contacted him right away. Our wedding ceremony photos were just as stunning and we are so glad we were able to work with Marcus to capture our special day.


"The quality of his work and his sheer photography talent are just top-notch."


What really blew us away, though, was everything that went into making the final product. Marcus’s attention to detail, communication, and care throughout the process was so impressive. He sat with me on a call to piece together our vision, worked through different pricing proposals to ensure we were comfortable, and even scouted out the location to ensure he could capture the day perfectly. Our guests loved how he was able to draw out and capture our joy with his charisma - everyone loved working with him. Even after the shoot, he sat down again with me to go through everything, explain his process, and help us pick the perfect gallery to tell our wedding day story.


In case it wasn’t clear already, we highly recommend Marcus without hesitation!

Christy & Patrick - Engagement


We had a wonderful time with Marcus and his wife, Sandy, for our engagement photo shoot. Marcus was quick to respond to my inquiry and set up a virtual meeting. He asked for our story and used that to help us pick out the perfect locations that were meaningful and looked beautiful in photos. Any questions I had leading up to the photo shoot (and after) he was quick to answer, which I really appreciated.


My fiance and I were a little nervous leading up to the shoot. We don't care for our picture to be taken, but we wanted to get some done to use for our future wedding plans. We figured we would at least get a few good ones to use.


"Marcus made the day an event to remember. We were laughing nonstop. When the proofs came back we were shocked. The pictures were AWESOME! "


Marcus and Sandy did an amazing job finding just the right angles and lighting to take our pictures to the next level. And when he says that his wife has a "natural eye for genuine moments" it is very true. Together they made a great team and we couldn't have asked for better.
