Has anyone used Carla Ten Eyck for photography?

Still in need of a photographer and wondering if anyone has used her? If so, how was your experience and would you mind telling me her prices?

Thanks!

  • Sorry I haven't used her. But I would like to recommend michelle Ferro if you're still looking. Ferrophoto.com

  • She is ridiculously, insanely expensive.  Carla is one of the "trendy" vendors to have, she's friends with White Dress by the Shore, Dana Bartone, shoots weddings for magazines, etc etc, so I really feel you pay thousands of extra dollars for that "C10Ike" watermark on your photos.

    Frankly, you can get photos comparable to Carla in quality for much less money.
  • I've heard good things about Carla Ten Eyck.  I don't know her prices though. 

    I am using Brooke Allison Photography (http://brookeallisonphoto.com/ ) she is amazing! You should look into her

    I'm using Michael Dzienis Photography. He's really resonable. Here is his website if you want to check him out:  http://www.michaeldzienisphotography.com or check out his facebook page:  http://www.facebook.com/pages/Michael-J-Dzienis-Photography/229063560503616?sk=wall
  • If you have a 5k+ budget, she's a good choice. I like her photos, but not enough to spend half the cost of my reception on them. I can email you the package prices she emailed me when I inquired if you like.
  • I like her work but as others posted she is VERY expensive. When I contacted her a few weeks ago her price was $6500 for her to be the primary shooter. I'd shop around because you can get a quality photographer for less than that imo.

  • I agree with PP. Carla is super trendy and rarely shoots weddings anymore. Usually you get one of her assistants. One photographer that works with her is Erik Maziaraz. He is awesome and super nice... plus much less money. I am not sure if his contract with Carla allows him to shoot on his own, not under a Carla contract though.

    I would also suggest contacting Eric Brushett. His work is amazing and he can work with any budget. www.ericbrushett.com

    Good luck!!

    Thx! Does he use a second shooter?
  • I have not used her, I did contact her in the beginning of our search & never got a response back from her.

    I did have friends who used her & LOVED her work. She & her crew do take amazing pics and have such an eye.

    Yes, she is one of the pricier vendors, but IMO you get what you pay for. We paid alot for our photographers but got a ton (compaired to all the others populars on this board who were all ala carte) in return & got phenomenial service!

    Loved our photographers...

  • I agree Carla is extremely expensive, but I'm using Julie @ C10E and I can't wait to work with her!!  She'll be bringing an assistant, spending all day with us, and her price was actually lower than many of the other photographers mentioned by PPs.  Feel free to PM me and I can give you more info!
