Cara was a true joy to work with. Her expertise in photography is evident in the pictures we got both for our engagement session then on our big day. What I loved most about working with her was her down-to-earth personality. It was easy to see that Cara is invested in her clients and really takes their wishes and wants into the forefront. She came into our lives as our wedding photographer, but is staying in it as a friend. That's just the kind of person she is, kind, warm-hearted, and just a down right good person. I have gotten so many compliments of her work from my family, friends, and wedding guests and would recommend her to ANYONE! She's the best of the best! A true honor to have her capture our big day!
Amazing!!Reviewed on 9/01/2015 Billie C
What sold me about Cara was her view that the best photographs are the ones where the subjects are just living and loving life! We wanted less "posey" pictures- we just wanted to enjoy the day. Cara did not disappoint! We had a great time doing our engagement pictures and knew we would have a great time at the wedding with Cara. Cara certainly went above and beyond on our wedding day. She helped keep me calm and focused on what was important on that day- we had so much FUN taking our pictures. She worked well with everyone! One of our groomsmen told us he had the most fun taking wedding pictures, thanks to her. She let us be ourselves and we are so thankful! I know the pictures will turn out beautifully, but more importantly, we have great memories of our day!
Cara and her team did a fantastic job capturing our wedding day. My spouse has a large family and it was important to us that we get a great photgraph of the family at the church. Cara suggested taking the picture from a balcony above the main floor of the church with family standing in the pews looking up at her. The resulting picture was nothing short of amazing. Every couple dreams of having at least one iconic image from their wedding and I am happy to say that Cara and her team captured hundreds of such images during our wedding day.
Cara is an outstanding photographer. She is organized and prompt to respond as you are planning your big day. On the day of your event, she is kind and brings a calming presence to what can sometimes be a very busy time! She definitely captures all of the details and emotions of the day. Her photos are of the highest quality with amazing editing. I would recommend her to anyone who places a high value on capturing their wedding day through beautiful images.
Cara did an amazing job of capturing our special day! We felt like our photos were very unique and are something we will always look back at!! She also did an amazing job of making two very unphotogenic people be photogenic!! Her kind heart and easy going nature made the day feel like a dream come true!! could not of picked a better person to capture our day!! Would recommend a hundred times!!
Cara and Angie did a fabulous job photographing our wedding! They made us feel comfortable all day and maintained an upbeat attitude while we got some pictures in the swampy humidity of the gardens. Our pictures are absolutely beautiful! I am so happy my husband and I have so many joyful images to enjoy for the rest of our life together!
Cara is amazing! She's comfortable to be around with. She's very professional! Her pricing for packages are very reasonable. I loved how my engagement photos came out and my wedding pictures.
Cara was amazing and she helped the day go so smoothly! Couldn't have asked for a better photographer
We love CB Yates!Reviewed on 11/18/2015 Katie T
Words cannot express how happy we are that we used CB Yates for our wedding photography! Cara immediately makes you feel at ease with her friendly and professional nature. We absolutely love every picture from our May 2015 wedding. Cara was everywhere she needed to be during both the ceremony and the reception. I never had a worry that we were missing important shots from the reception. In fact, she was taking pictures during moments I had no idea I would be so happy to capture. I feel that Cara specializes in candid shots and these are our favorite to see from the wedding and the reception. She also gives great direction on posed photos without making people feel unnatural. She has a wonderful sense of humor and can get smiles out of anyone. Cara is such a delight to work with and both my husband and I would highly recommend her to anyone. We have even met with her again recently to photograph a fall session that will be used for holiday cards. With CB Yates, we have found both a photographer and a friend for all our future life events.
Cara was a delight to work with and a true professional. My husband and I selected her as the photographer for our wedding. She took the time to get to know us as a couple, and her insight was reflected in her beautiful photography. Her photos were ready in a timely manner after the wedding, which is not the case for many of my friends who waited a very, very long time. Cara is a truly kind person, and takes care to capture the unique aspects of the individuals she works with. I would definitely recommend her services!
Loved her!Reviewed on 10/30/2015
Cara was phenomenal! Our wedding pictures are absolutely wonderful and we are SOO happy that we have these stunning images to cherish for the rest of our lives! She is so much fun to work with and made sure everybody felt comfortable. She had a way of capturing naturally beautiful moments! I would recommend Cara in a heartbeat!
Best. Day. Ever.Reviewed on 10/13/2015 Sarah
My experience may be a little bit different with Cara considering she knew me in diapers and is like a sister to me. But I promise, to all of you brides, that she will feel like a sister to you the moment you meet her. Her warm hug and soft tone makes you feel so comforted and looking at her samples with her creative, lifestyle, non-posed captures is beyond words. I will never forget April 26, 2015 and how I was so happy to have Cara there with me throughout the day. If you're contemplating the money, don't contemplate it anymore. It is so worth it! You won't regret your decision to go with cb Yates Photography.

Cara was wonderful to work with. Best decision we ever made was to hire Cara as our photographer. She captured the day beautifully. We have so many candid photos of the day and our wedding guests that bring back many memories. I can't recommend Cara enough!

SUPURB!Reviewed on 12/01/2011 Jennifer R
Cara was great to work with! She took time to meet the groom and I before the wedding so we would feel more comfortable during the wedding. She made an amazing photo album sign in book with our engagement picturesn and the day of she was great! She was very patient with all our requests and our time schedule. She had great ideas for pictures and really went above and beyond helping pin flowers on the wedding party, making sure everyone was where they were supposed to be. She stayed engaged the whole reception. I could not have found a better photographer!!
