Fitz Carlile

Part of the reason his wedding photography stands out is because of his approach with clients. He searches for organic interactions between himself and his couple – an honest representation of who they are, how they behave towards each other. He start by describing a mood, an idea, and lets his clients interpret it, sometimes with gentle bits of direction to get them to an emotional place. Once they get the hang of it, they lose themselves in those moments, and that’s when he starts hitting the shutter.

Fitz Carlile is also a lifestyle and portrait photographer based in Los Angeles. As a travel bug, his passport is always ready for the next destination assignment.
