Meet Elizabeth

Though I've lived in St. Louis for over five years, I am a Virginia native, born and raised. I grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and then attended the University of Virginia. I picked up my first DSLR prior to a study abroad program in Florence, Italy, and it was there that I fell in love with the process of making a portrait and telling a story through a lens. In Italy, during my first photography class with my Canon Rebel in hand, I met Andy. Together, we run Carretto Studio. We live on Washington Avenue in downtown St. Louis, with our cat Artemis, and we enjoy traveling, red wine, watching The Office, and eating delicious food. 

As a photographer, I love romantic, organic, dreamy images. I'm still in love with making portraits and telling stories, and it has been a great pleasure to do just that at over 100 amazing wedding days. At Carretto Studio, we strive to maintain an elegant, timeless fine art feel (we say that a lot, but we really mean it). I see documenting a wedding day is an opportunity to create family heirlooms, and I would love the honor of photographing the first day of the rest of your lives.
