live in the moments

PhotoBug Photography



From the planning phase of location scouting, props, scheduling around the sun for the best lighting, sending questionnaires, and getting to know you, I'm here to help.

To being on time for our session, making you feel comfortable, assisting with posing, getting those requested shots and the ones you didn't know you needed, I'm here to help.

Finishing out our encounter with culling, editing, sneak peeks, full gallery delivery, and the option for prints or albums, I'm here to help.




MEET Carissa

Beyond being a photographer, I am also a wife, mother, friend, chaos coordinator, and I’m here to tell your story. I found photography when I was just a child and I love it for its capacity to freeze moments in time, to document love in all of its wild and wonderful forms. 


We are located in Franklin County, Pennsylvania and frequently travel all over the area for photo sessions. We are also open to booking anywhere in the United Stated and it's territories at this time. 
In the future we may be booking for outside of the U.S.

Packages begin at $250 and you can contact us for details via the handy dandy contact link you see in the top left or by clicking HERE.

One of my all-time favorite photographers, Carissa, never fails to capture the ideal moment and has a charm that makes posing effortless. She also does a fantastic job of easing both my boyfriend and I into the world of modeling. Working with her was enjoyable because of her personality, expertise, and the way she keeps things casual, and professional. She helps you feel confident, sexy and comfortable, and the end result is always jaw dropping to me. Without a doubt, I would suggest and collaborate with her again in the future!

.This is the absolute best way to describe how easy and amazing it is to work with Carissa. We were referred to her by a past acquaintance while looking for a photographer for our 2015 wedding. I reached out to Photobug Photography and she was so considerate and responsive through the whole entire planning process. We set a date for an engagement photoshoot to get a taste of her talent. My husband, who HATES getting his picture taken went into the day dreading the entire shoot lol. But he was amazed how quick and easy everything turned out (with gorgeous pictures to follow!) which got him excited for being photographed on our actual wedding day.

Go into the session as a client, leave the the session as a friend...
