A Little Bit About Us:
Carina and Amanda attended Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia together, both with a focus in Fine Art Photography. After graduating, the duo starting photographing weddings together and eventually became known as Love Me Do Photography. Since starting in 2006, we have added to our small studio a talented team of female photographers, and expanded to doing not only photography for weddings but also videography, photobooth services, commercial and lifestyle photography.
Our photographic approach draws from our backgrounds in fine art, documentary and editorial photography with an emphasis on creative portraiture. We aim to capture the little moments throughout the day that showcase the genuine love and affection between the couples we photograph. A wedding is an emotional journey, as you are surrounded by your family and loved ones. We want you to remember every detail, every person in attendance, and how you celebrated the night away.
I’ve been shooting weddings since I was in high school in South Carolina. I kept at it when I moved to Philadelphia to attend Tyler School of Art and, later, while a photographer at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Carina and I teamed up in 2006. We had both realized we loved the work, and the city, too. My favorite part of photographing weddings has always been the people, developing relationships with clients, drawing out their unique personalities, and documenting their major life events. I love to keep in touch — and photograph them — as their families change and grow.
When I'm not working, I'm usually spending time with my husband, John, and our fearless daughter, Agnes. We love to travel and go to new places, but sometimes exploring our own neighborhood, Fishtown, is just as fun.
I graduated with a BFA in Photography and Art History from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, and have been shooting weddings since 2002. My fine art photography has been exhibited throughout Philadelphia and surrounding areas, and has been published numerous times in local and National publications. I am a traveler and adventure-seeker. I aim to view our great and vast world through fresh eyes, taking in every new experience I see as an image of greatness. When I'm not photographing, I enjoy hanging with my two dogs, Basil and Nanuq, eating sweets, visiting friends across the world, relaxing with my partner, Brian, in our fishtown home.

Our wedding packages begin at 8 hours. Additional hours can be added on if needed for your wedding day. This amount of time typically begins while the Bride is getting ready, right before putting on the dress, and extends until after the last scheduled event of the reception has been completed. Before we leave we always make sure check in with you. We like to say our goodbyes and congratulate you on a wedding well done!
At any point between the time of booking and your wedding date, we are available to offer advice, planning, and any helpful dialogue for your wedding. We can provide suggestions for photography locations for your wedding day based on your location and aesthetic. We are also happy to help out with any vendor recommendations you may need.
After the wedding is photographed, every image is fully edited and processed. In addition, our favorite images from your wedding are further retouched to present your memories in the most beautiful way possible. If you have a special request for extra retouching, just let us know and we can customize a quote depending on the scale of project involved.
