A Fine Art Wedding & Portrait Photography Studio based in the Midwest and Available for Travel Worldwide.
Our greatest moments are spent with the ones we love. From joyful tears shed on a wedding day to soft kisses placed on a newborn baby's cheek, there is nothing quite so wonderful as savoring every moment life has to offer. For nine years, Aly Carroll Photography has had the immense pleasure of photographing hundreds of life's sweetest blessings. No matter the season you're in, we use a lens of grace, confidence, and beauty to capture it all.
Aly is a published photographer, wife, mama, and educator. Born in the beautiful Peach State of Georgia and now rooted in Iowa, she is endlessly inspired by the charm, allure, and hospitality of the South. With a background in fashion and a heart for the simple things, Aly's style is remarkably elegant, timeless, and refined.

At ACP, I focus on capturing 15-20 weddings per year in an effort to provide each of my clients with the personalized experience they deserve. After years of turning away so many wonderful couples because I was booked or out of budget, I created The Darling Studio with my friend and fellow photographer, Ana Woods.
The Darling Studio is made up of some of the most talented and heartfelt wedding and portrait photographers in the Midwest. Our mission is to provide you with timeless imagery backed up with top-notch customer service. Each Darling photographer has been meticulously trained to shoot in a style that is almost identical to ACP and truly has my stamp of approval.
