Bespoke wedding collections include comprehensive photography coverage, collaborative timeline planning, and options for fine art albums, engagement sessions, and additional event coverage to best fit the needs of your events.
Additionally, all wedding collections include my signature white-glove planning experience. From my hand-curated dream team of vendors across the globe to personal styling recommendations for each and every one of your wedding celebrations to pre-wedding location scouting, it is my honor to be by your side during every step of your wedding planning journey.
Let’s travel to the location that means the most to you or check a destination off your bucket list for your pre-wedding portrait session. No location is too far-flung or remote.

Pre-Wedding Collections include Molly's bespoke guidance on locations, fashion styling, customized vendor recommendations, and logistical coordination to ensure a truly exceptional experience.
With impeccable attention to detail and the studied eye of an artist, Molly works hand-in-hand with you and your wedding designer in the months leading up to your wedding to ensure the day is photographed in an elegant, elevated fashion that is completely true to you.
Molly serves as a visionary art director who goes great lengths to ensure that her clients' wedding day unfolds in a way that is cinematic while also remaining effortlessly elegant. Taking cues from the Impressionist and Romantic Movements, Molly carefully crafts a wedding story taking into consideration the mood, style, destination, and couple themselves.

Molly seeks to understand every couple she photographs and approaches each wedding with great thoughtfulness and extensive preparation. Because of this, she only accepts a maximum of ten wedding commissions per year to ensure that she is able to provide a truly bespoke service to her clients.
Over the years, Molly has carefully selected an exclusive team of the best vendors and venues across the globe which she lovingly hand-curates for each and every one of her clients .
Email me - I would love to send you a few full client galleries!
I always recommend seeing a minimum of three full wedding galleries from any photographer you are considering to give you a feel of what your images will look like and to understand the quality of their work.
Where can we see more of your work?
Once you’ve sent an inquiry and selected your date I will prepare a photography contract for your review. I ask that you return your signed contract within one week to ensure your date remains available.
Upon receiving your signed contact and 50% retainer your wedding date will officially be booked!
How do I book my date?
Absolutely! As all proposals are completely customized to your needs, I’m able to be at as many events as you would like.
On average, most of my couples will hire me for three days of events which are usually the wedding day, welcome party or rehearsal dinner, and a pre-wedding session or honeymoon session.
Will you be able to photograph multiple days of events?
I arrive at least one full day in advance of the celebrations to scout all the locations and familiarize myself with the locale, lighting, and wedding itinerary.
For international weddings I will often arrive several days in advance to account for any sort of unforeseen travel delays. Whilst scouting, I take location and scenery shots which tell the full story of your destination wedding.
When will you arrive at our wedding destination?
I focus on creating heirloom-quality art using the best quality of service and products. I carefully edit each and every image that I photograph. Film is a slower medium but its quality is simply unmatched and is truly worth the additional wait in production-time.
That being said, you can expect to receive your portrait session images in about 8 weeks and wedding gallery in 12.
What are image turnaround times?
Thanks to my careful planning and preparation I ensure that all of the special moments and details will be beautifully captured. However, please do let me know any special guests, unique moments, or unusual details that you would like photographed.
On your wedding morning I ask that you have rings, shoes, jewelry, invitations, and any other heirlooms that you would like to be photographed set aside for me in the bridal suite.
Would you like a ‘shot list’ of our desired photos?
I believe in quality over quantity and, in general, you can expect a minimum of 50 images per hour of contracted coverage.
Usually it will be more, but this is a good minimum number to anticipate.
How many images can we expect to receive?
I shoot on both film and digital cameras to ensure your day is captured in the most beautiful way imaginable. My analog work is created on a Contax 645 medium format camera and a 35mm camera, while my digital work is shot on a Canon 5D Mark IV.
I always bring backup cameras, lenses, and memory cards and have my equipment serviced regularly to ensure it’s in full working order.
What equipment do you use?
As luxury wedding planners, Molly is quite simply our absolute favorite photographer to work with. When she gets behind the camera she creates magic and an elegance that is truly breathtaking. Her photography will allow your wedding come to life all over again even after many years.
Being able to put all of our trust in a photographer means everything to us. Molly is so deserving of yours she will accommodate you and your guests in every way possible, creating a seamless and beautiful wedding while making all around her feel confident in their own skin. She has a wonderful eye for detail and goes above and beyond our couples dreams leading up to and on their wedding day. She has so much passion for what she does and that shines through her exquisite work. Any couple would be lucky to have Molly be a part of their day!"
"Not only does Molly have impeccable taste and an incredible artistic eye, she also has a calming presence that makes every shooting experience so enjoyable. In my experiences working with Molly, she has brought unparalleled passion and attention to detail to our projects - something that every couple deserves to have. In my experience on the other side of the camera, Molly made us feel so comfortable and was really able to capture so much of the essence of our relationship. It is not often that creatives are the full package but Molly is punctual, detail oriented, creative, tasteful, and inspiring, and so passionate about her work.
I love working with Molly and welcome every opportunity I get to recommend her to clients looking for heirloom quality images of their special day!”
"Molly's level of talent, generosity, and overall client service is a definite stand out. She is passionate, kind, and professional. I trust her completely to capture each and every detail of my clients’ wedding day from beginning to end, knowing she will go above and beyond to tell the couple’s story.
Not only is she an incredibly talented wedding professional, she is beyond generous with her time, always offering advice and guidance throughout the couple’s entire planning experience leading up to the day. Each couple and wedding professional that has had the pleasure of working with her has shouted so from the rooftops. Five stars aren’t enough to show just how wonderful Molly Carr is!”
“Molly is the absolute best choice you can make for your wedding photographer. She is not only absolutely super talented and skilled, she is also the person that will put you at ease during one of the most emotional moments of your life. She is kind, warm, professional and calm.
Molly involved me in a three-day wedding in Tuscany and she was always ahead of the process, collaborative and present to help me and our couple create the most seamless and stress-free event. Her presence during the events was always discreet and supportive, it was a true joy to work alongside of her! The photos she took are outstanding and our bride and groom have indelible memories of their special time here thanks to her."
"It's clear she has such an incredible eye, but from day one she still took the time to get to know us and to see how we envisioned our wedding day photos.
Throughout the entire planning process she worked side by side with our planner to be sure every base was covered, checking in often to see if she could be of support. Her attention to detail is unmatched, and when we look back at our wedding photos we feel as if we're reliving every moment! Her calming energy took every ounce of stress off of us and allowed us to focus on our special weekend.
We truly and wholeheartedly recommend Molly to any couple to make their destination wedding in Europe extraordinary!”
"I even wanted to hire her to photograph his proposal in Paris, but he surprised me and proposed earlier. As soon as we decided on a destination wedding in Tuscany and reception in Napa, I booked her immediately for both!
Molly was an absolute dream to work with throughout the entire eighteen month wedding planning process. She was extremely responsive and always willing to go above and beyond to offer advice & recommendations. She listened to what was important to us and made sure that every single request was met. All our photography sessions were so effortless and smooth and we were absolutely blown away when we received our galleries - we will treasure the photos for a lifetime! Molly is a true artist and professional and we would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone!”
"Molly guided us through the entire wedding planning process - going as far as sending us reminders about what to pack, questions to ask vendors, timeline suggestions and genuine texts of excitement for Paul and I.
Molly’s photography certainly speaks for itself—it is gallery-worthy art in which we are so incredibly lucky to have in our home. More than her artistic style and creative eye, Molly is one of the most selfless, genuine, treasures of a human-being that we are so fortunate to call our friend. We can’t wait for Molly to document the next chapters in our life and to grow in the friendship we have built. We can’t thank you enough, sweet Molly, for making our wedding dreams come true!"
“Molly's amazing photography skills, artistic vision, responsiveness, thoughtfulness, and warmth made her the ideal and perfect person to capture our two-day elopement adventure on the beautiful Greek island of Santorini in which we had four photoshoots at sunrise and sunset to take full advantage of the perfect golden light.
We are so fortunate and will forever look fondly back on our decision to have her alongside us on the most important day of our lives and we know our elopement was even more special because Molly was with us.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you, Molly!”
“Molly's talent and photographic composition are without question among the best in the business. Further than that, her heart of gold and kind spirit are unmatched, and she handles each situation with ease and grace.
Molly has not only become our friend for life, but she will be called upon to capture any and all future photo worthy moments in our lives and marriage. She works tirelessly in pursuit of her craft of film photography which is so evident in the quality of her work and level of service she provides.
We will always have a special place in our heart for this sweet, talented and genuine doll of a human being. Trust me when I say that you will not be disappointed - she is second to none!”
“Finding the perfect photographer for our wedding was at the very top of my priority list when our wedding planning began. I had a very specific aesthetic in mind, but more than that, I wanted to find someone who I'd think of as a friend.
Molly was just that. She inherently knew which small details I'd want captured & how. Molly truly acted as my right hand and went above and beyond in every way!
Our photos turned out absolutely stunning. More than just an incredible photographer, I found exactly what I was looking for and more, a wedding photographer, a confidant, & a dear and trusted friend.”
“Molly is simply and utterly amazing. She is absolutely professional but is so incredibly personable, making you feel completely at ease while she photographs you on medium format film.
Her eye for capturing the perfect moments, fine art details, and the most beautiful lighting made our sunrise New York City engagement session in Central Park and the High Line and wedding photos in Cobble Hill and by the Brooklyn Bridge absolutely perfect.
In a time of so many wedding photographers, Molly's work not only stands out but truly stands the test of time.”
“We truly cannot say enough about our experience with Molly. Photos are the way you relive your most special memories and it was so important to us that the work reflected our love and wedding in the best way possible.
From initial correspondence, to vendor assistance, to timeline management, to vision understanding, and so much more. Molly was extremely hands on, professional, talented, kind, and just got ‘us’.
The entire experience of working with Molly was so above and beyond our wildest expectations. We felt extremely taken care of and honestly have too many favorite photos to count. Thank you, Molly! ”
Throughout all of history, there has never and will never be another couple like you. Against all odds, you both found each other and your love story is nothing short of extraordinary.
It is my life’s intention to honor your truly one-of-a-kind bond with artfully crafted images that capture the feeling of being on the canvas of an Impressionist composition.
