My name is Casie Marie and I am the gal behind the camera here at Casie Marie Photography! While currently residing in Central Florida, we also plan to move to North Carolina by 2024. I am always up for adventure ANYWHERE! It's pretty crazy, but, every single time I sit down and think about writing a biography about myself, I just sit here for 20 minutes trying to decide how I can truly express myself, and my true personality, to each and every one of you. To be honest, I am a pretty simple person. BUT I am SO complex all at the same time. I am outspoken, I am bossy, I am 100% type A, but man I LOVE my freaking job.
I have officially been a photographer since 2010, and took the step to full time in 2017. I have had the pleasure of being the photographer at over 250 weddings so far! I couldn't imagine myself doing anything else! I am able to share in the most amazingly beautiful weddings, capture the most precious memories, and "get down" on the dance floor with couples who have truly become some of my best friends through this entire process together. I am LOVING this life I have, and I would be HONORED to be your wedding photographer on YOUR big day!
MORE ABOUT ME
i live for
Walt Disney World is truly my happy place. It is quite literally the most magical place on earth, and you will likely catch me there when I need a day off, or when I just feel the need... ORRR when I am working haha.
Heck, you will also catch me working here too! I love seeing the sights, eating the mickey pretzels, pin trading, and so much more. I love living so close to this magical place, and hope to see you there too!

Rusty : The Child. The, needy, loving, spoiled, amazing, caring, and sweetest little boy on the entire planet, just so happens to be this little long haired weenie dog. This pup was a whim purchase that I made only a few years ago. He saw me and I saw him... and the rest was history. I am so thankful for that fateful day and so happy he was brought into my life.
Huck: Our newest little fur child, a "Goldador" (Golden Retriever + Chocolate Lab Mix) who came into our lives at the end of the busiest May I have ever encountered. He is loving, sweet, and dang is he smart. I cannot wait to watch him grow!
I attended the University of Central Florida, and graduated in 2015, with my Bachelors degree in Choral Music Education. I had every intention of becoming a High School Choir teacher, but the powers that be had better plans for me. I still am an educator at heart, even though my path lead me to photography, and I love helping others learn, and honestly just being helpful and knowledgable in general!

When I got my passport in 2017, I never could have imagined all of the amazing places it would allow me to travel to. Since then I have been able to experience many different places see the most amazing sights! I have been to Mexico, The Bahamas, France, and Sweden! Of course, I would LOVE to visit even more exciting and new places throughout the world and even get to work in these amazing places too!

Something Logan and I agreed on is that we want to visit the 61 US National Parks. So far, we have been to Zion, Badlands, Great Smokey Mountains, Everglades, Biscayne, Rocky Mountains, and Wind Cave National Parks. I am so thankful to have someone who truly enjoys travel and adventure as much as I do. We are slowly creating our own UP themed "Adventure Book" filled with images of us in the parks
When someone stops and asks "Why" I chose to become a professional photographer,
I never hesitate to say this:
"I am a photographer because I want to capture moments in time. Not just capture them, but also to commemorate a beautiful time in someones life that they will want to look back on years from now, and get to feel that same rush of emotion, remember the moments they experienced, and relive the moments that made them the happiest they have ever been."
The photographs you see here are two of the photographs that my parents have printed in a small photo album in their home. They are the two photographs that I look at and think to myself "this is why I do what I do," because, no matter where, when, how, or what you choose to celebrate and those you celebrate with, capturing those memories is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. I sometimes wish that my parents had hired a professional photographer for their wedding day, but, just having those moments captured was the most important thing of all. I am so thankful for these photographs, and want to give this same service to those who allow me to be the one to capture these moments for them as well.
Want to get to know the team that will be handling your most special day, making sure that everything goes according to plan, and also helping to capture all of the little moments in between?
I have the pleasure of having the most amazing people who I get to call not only my second shooter, and assistant, but also some of my best friends as well. I am thankful for the team I have, who roots me on in everything I do, while also being my right hand people to keep the show going strong!
She's awesome, and that is all I can say!
For real though, this girl is my right hand ma'am.
She is a PHENOMENAL photographer, just as OCD as I am, great with keeping my crazy in check, and the one who will be hanging out with the groomsmen before the ceremony (or the first look). She is someone who I can 100% trust to capture all those little moments that happen in the background on your day, and the second angles when we are teaming up for portraits!
Chantell is also a full time professional wedding photographer for her own business, so, she may be booked but if not, she is there for your big day!
This guy is the most amazing assistant, and also my HUSBAND!
Logan is a full time first responder/student resource officer in our hometown, but also takes time on his days off to help out when I am in need of an extra hand!
While Logan may still be in training behind the camera, he is an essential part to helping days go smoothly when a second photographer is not part of your collection. Wether he is carrying bags, getting behind the scenes shots, making sure we stay on schedule, or just being around to grab anything necessary, Logan is fun to have around on wedding days, when available!
A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what
is being photographed.
