“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”
My name is Cari Pilgrim and I’m a professional full-time photographer located in North Georgia. My husband and I just put down roots by buying a home in our little, mountain town in Dahlonega and we could’t be more excited! Simply doing life with each other and our fur babe, rescue kitty Sozo makes me so happy!
I graduated with my BFA with a concentration in Photography and a minor in Psychology from the University of North Georgia in 2015 and I’ve been following my childhood dream of being a full-time artist ever since.
I want to give you more than just pretty pictures.
Being able to bring warmth, calmness, and sensitivity to the atmosphere of your elopement, wedding day, or session is something I’m proud of. Making sure you take a step back from some of the craziness, nerves, or awakardness to ensure you’re fully present in every moment is what I’m there for. My goal is to create an environment during your shoot that you feel free and comfortable to be yourself.
My ambition is to creatively tell your story from start to finish in the most beautiful way possible. I take time to get to know you, your story + your vibe. Capturing stories + building relationships through creative imagery is what I do best.
I’m a strong believer in P R I N T
Albums are heirlooms. They’re conversation starters and storytellers all on their own.
I used to spend hours sitting in my parents basement going through old photos and albums of my family. The pictures in those boxes speak volumes to me. Looking through each image taught me about my parents, my grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and my heritage. A single photo can be SO powerful. To this day, I’m filled with nostalgia, pride, sadness and happiness looking back through the past. There’s just something about having a tangible memory to run your fingers over to recall times of old.
I encourage you to print your photos. I feel strongly about having something to pass on that’s not just a basket of old, useless phones. Let’s keep print alive!
