Hi, I’m Carrie Gabella!
I’m an Ohio-born artist based in central Maine working anywhere my camera takes me. I fell in love with photography as a child, taking pictures of beloved pets with a hand-me-down camera. I went on to study at Antioch College, graduating with a degree in Photography in 2007. My work has been included in several shows in Cleveland and has been shown in galleries in Seattle, Philadelphia, and New York.
I love working as a portrait and event photographer, using my creative passion to document important events — from engagements to weddings to simply being together as family. I aspire to create timeless images that show a depth of joy and love. I am honored to be invited into special and intimate moments, collaborating with clients to capture their unique stories.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." - Roald Dahl
I'd love to hear from you! Please contact me to start the conversation!

What My Clients Say About Me
"Carrie was amazing!!!!!! She was friendly, easy to work with, and perfectly captured the love on our wedding day. My husband and I are based out of LA and knew we wouldn't get a chance to meet with our photographer before the big day so it was really important for us to find someone who could capture our aesthetic but didn't require a lot of direction. After looking at so many photographers who's photos were overposed or over-edited, Carrie's portfolio was a breath of fresh air."
"Carrie did an absolutely fantastic job capturing my wedding day and we could not be more pleased with her work! She is truly an artist, and has an incredible eye for composition, lighting, and capturing just the right moment in such an authentic and beautiful way. The talent, time, care and passion poured into every shot is evident...Carrie is a genuine artist and I find that to be a little more rare these days."
“I really don't know where to begin with her. In short, the best. As a photographer, A+, she consistently captured the candid moments of our wedding that really, I mean really really, put us right back in the moment the photo was taken. As someone to work with, she was a dream…As a person, she is so darn warm. The sweetest person you'd ever hope to meet…Her attention to detail is also tremendous which comes out in her photos and editing…We fell in love with her photography style from day one and definitely feel like we struck gold. We weren't paid to say this.”
