About Carrington Visuals
being a photographer is the best job in the world, but its not "just a job".
Your day should be stress-free. Let me worry about the details.
My name is Charles Arrington, and I'm the photographer|videographer behind Carrington Visuals primarily specializing in weddings, portraits and events. My style tends to lean on the more photojournalistic and documentary style while also throwing in some editorial design cues to round everything out.
My start with photography was when I was younger and my family used to go on vacations. My dad would always have his 35mm Minolta camera, and I would just love to play with it. Later in college, I bought my first camera and I took it pretty much everywhere I went. I loved how you could just capture memories and then look back on them later and the photos almost seemed to transport you back to the feeling you had when you first took them.
My dad instilled the love of photography in me, but my mom fostered it and made that love grow.We used to take short photo walks around town, just taking pictures and spending time together that I will always remember and forever cherish.
Losing my mom has really shown me not only how much I love photography, but just how important this all is. It's more than just taking pretty pictures, its about telling a story, documenting moments and emotions that seem to fly by but stand the test of time in photos. Its about collecting ad cherishing those memories for years and lifetimes to come.
This is why I do what I do. I want to make sure that everyone has this opportunity to save these moments to look back at years later knowing tat those memories will never be let and can be shared for even more generations to come.
This is more than just a "job", and the people I work with are more than "clients". This is what I enjoy and love doing, and I always give it 110%, and then just a little bit more for good measure.
If you're looking for an easy-going photographer who can keep a level head through all of the moving parts that makes up a wedding day without breaking a sweat and making sure it's stress free for you while making sure you look your absolute best, you're in the right place!
