About Carson Lillard Photography

Carson Lillard Photography

Owner & Photographer

Hi, I’m Carson. I am based in Columbia, SC! I have loved photography since I was a kid, but I always wanted to share the joy with others. That’s why I love wedding & elopement photography so much. Not only do I enjoy it, but I also get to see the happiness it brings to so many couples. Your wedding or elopement should be your ‘dream day’ and I am here to help you plan it, guide, and get some amazing photos! I would love to be there for you on your journey, whether you are going a more traditional route, or want something totally unique, creative, or adventurous!

I am all about candid photos and being present in the moment! I am here to capture your real and authentic connection, but if you need a little help I will guide you the whole way! I care about each and every one of my ‘clients’ and I am so invested in you and I want you to feel comfortable in front of the camera. My style is unique because I blend styles of fine art, editorial, colorful, candid, and documentary. I love weddings of any type and always look forward to experiencing weddings with different traditions and cultures.

    Carson was fabulous to work with. Very communicative and laid back, she accommodated all our requests and was willing to work with us over multiple days so we could get the perfect photos for our wedding. Can’t recommend enough.

  • Beautiful photos!

    If you’re looking for a professional friendly photographer, Carson was the easiest vendor to work with and always made us feel comfortable! Photos are absolutely beautiful of course, delivered sneak peeks right away and worked with our vision! 10/10

    Carson was so easy to work with from our first chat through getting our photos! Very laid back and super chill, which is why we totally connected. Day of our wedding, we met and it just felt right. She knew all the spots in Yosemite to get the best view and shot without all the visitors. Our photos are AMAZING!

  • The best!

    Carson was amazing through our whole process! Quick to respond to questions, was prompt, took AMAZING photos and had them back to us even quicker than she said she would. Not only a great photographer but a really kind and super cool person. 20/10 would hire again.
