About me

     Hi, Im Carol DeAnda, born and raised in the southwest suburbs and now living in Lake in the Hills Illinois. I have always been the one with the camera since grade school, but it wasn't until high school I realized that this could be my calling. After high school I attended Harrington College of Design for the Digital photography program and started on my path to become a professional photographer. I have been photographing families since 2008, and then added weddings in 2010. I am a PPA member as well as a member of The Wedding Equality Alliance.

     I believe that love is love no matter what and am a strong supporter in marriage equality! Anyone who loves someone enough to want to spend their entire lives together deserves to have that love celebrated and remembered through photography.

     I am obsessed with stripes, I never believed in that don't wear horizontal stripes rule! I am kind of a tv junkie, I love Shameless, Mad Men, Gossip Girl, Big Brother, anything reality, and way too many more to list. I absolutely love the band Fall Out Boy and have since I was a freshman in high school. Now you know a little bit about me, I want to know a little bit about you! Friend me on facebook or shoot me an email!
