Welcome to C10 Studios, the portrait site for the gregarious Carla Ten Eyck! (hey, that’s me!) Whether it’s a professional head shot, a family portrait or a session just because, I am excited to show you how I see you, in your element, happy, relaxed + comfortable.

I have been doing a bit of personal work on myself outside of the photography realm this past year. In my travels I have come to realize that in the end, we all just want to be seen, heard and loved. A big part of being seen is allowing others to look deeply at us and into us. The deepest and sometimes most challenging way of being seen is allowing someone to photograph you. It’s amazing to me how quickly people can shut down or lose confidence the second a camera is pointed at them, it’s almost like it’s a weapon the responses can be so visceral! My goal as a photographer is to get to know you, what you are about, who you love and help make you comfortable so that we can create the most honest version of you in the photograph we make together. I appreciate and am thankful for your trust and openness in this process and look forward to making some amazing images with you!

See me, seeing you. Available for travel world wide.


Founder, Carla Ten Eyck

Carla has been joyfully photographing weddings for the past 14 years all over the New England area and beyond. She received her BFA in photojournalism from the prestigious Rochester Institute of Technology in 1995. Her photojournalism field work includes working at The Hartford Courant, The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle / Times Union and The Associated Press in New York City. Carla’s segue into documenting weddings was natural and combined her best skill sets of photographing people, moments and emotions with style, beauty and a sense of humor. Carla also has amazing crowd control skills. Maybe being one of nine children helped with that!

Carla runs her bustling studio out of her renovated childhood home in Hartford, CT’s historic West End.

Carla is co-author of the inspirational coffee table book The White Dress: in color, wedding inspiration for the modern bride; her second book The White Dress: Destinations is currently at the publisher (!) ; was a former co-producer of the yearly four day photography workshop Inspire Photo Retreats; is on the photography team that documents the Engage Luxury Business Summits; has delivered many speaking presentations all over the country to help inspire and motivate photographers and industry colleagues

‘Eyes up, heart open’ has been Carla’s motto for life, and she works hard to enthusiastically breathe energy, excitement and fun into everything she does from turning ideas into reality; to shooting in new locations around the globe and to simple things like snuggling with her kids and hiding in the studio trying to scare her cats!
