Moonstone Beach portrait by Keara Lloyd


I'm a Humboldt County based wedding and portrait photographer living her best life, and her best love story within view of the Pacific Ocean in Trinidad, California. For the last seventeen years, I have been helping clients document, preserve, and display their living histories. 

In college I studied photography with an emphasis in landscape. I began shooting weddings under the direction and inspiration of the few photographers shooting them in the Eureka, Arcata, Willow Creek, and Garberville areas at the time. 

The work that I deliver to my clients is a representation of this unique background. A celebration of the natural environment. Stunning landscapes. Accurate color rendering that is luscious yet timeless and not trendy. Flattering posing for planned portraits that is classic yet leaves room for fun. 

A wedding day is a collection of moments. Incredibly precious moments. Incredibly fleeting moments. I consult extensively with every couple I work with so that I can observe each wedding with my heart first and my eyes second. I have the experience needed to tell your love story back to you without words. 

People come into my life as clients and remain as friends. I invite you to reach out and see why. You could just book me for an engagement session but then you'll probably have to take me to Jamaica when you decide to elope. True story.



Happy tears are not just promised when you see your wedding photographs, they are guaranteed. -Carrie
