Carrie Wildes Bio

Carrie Wildes owns Carrie Wildes Photography (based in Tampa, Florida) and operates out of a custom home studio and second location in a shared commercial space. Their team includes six photographers, a studio manager, and graphic designer. You can find Carrie dodging traffic, leaning off ledges, and sometimes even braving the snow to get the money shot.  But this all didn’t start until she realized the gift she had while on a mission trip to the Philippines…where she fell in love with photography.  In 2007, she and her husband, David, left the frozen tundra of Chicago to start a new and warmer life in Tampa, Florida.  Carrie then decided to get off the corporate ladder and build one her own. She graduated from Purdue University with a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering, is a scuba diver, doesn’t eat beef, and is a social media diva.
