Carrie Patterson, of Carrie Draghi Photography LLC, started her photography business out of her home in January of 2004. She quickly outgrew the home studio and moved into a retail storefront in South Glastonbury where she worked until vacating the space in the pandemic of 2020. She has been working out of her home until the industry stabilizes. "The pandemic hit the event industry harder than most. I moved back into a home studio to keep my business IN business," says Carrie. Her photography style combines classic, whimsical, and fashion as she is a skilled lighting professional. "Not all couples are the same. Their photos should not look the same."
Carrie photographs weddings, engagements, bat/bar mitzvahs, children and families, and high school seniors. She also provides corporate, acting, and modeling headshots, pets, boudoir, corporate events, and commercial and editorial photography.
