Hey friends! I'm Alex,
the face behind Carter Tate Photography. I am 27 years old, born at Fort Bragg, NC and I now live in Norman, Oklahoma with my wonderful boyfriend and our annoyingly handsome Alaskan Malamute, Zeus. I have been insanely in love with photography ever since my mom gave me my first camera in 2010. Ever since then, I have done everything I can to better myself and my craft.
In my free time, I love spending time at home with my loved ones and watching movies for the 100th time. I love all things Cherry Limeade and potatoes (french fries and mashed potatoes to name a few). I am currently obsessed with collecting candles and houseplants, shopping, exploring nature, and finding new and exciting shows to binge watch on Netflix and Hulu.
I'm sure at this point you are wondering, hmm, her name isn't Carter, so why Carter Tate? Well, Carter Tate was my grandpa who fought in WWII. When I was deciding what I wanted to name my business, honestly, I wasn't fond of using my first and last name. Just didn't flow, ya know! So, I did some thinking and realized I had never met my grandpa and wanted to honor him for his service and sacrifice. Soo, here we are!
I would love to shoot with you and make some really spectacular memories!
“Alex is the only photographer to ever make me feel confident in front of the camera. I never feel like i'm having to pose and hold still for a certain shot. Rather I get to go and have fun, and be me! I've used Carter Tate Photography probably four or five times now and don't ever consider looking for anyone else!”
