Please, don’t be intimidated by our stunning good looks. 😉 We’re just like you and we’re here to help you with your photography needs. We are a husband/wife team and we are glad you found our page. Buie Photography is all about giving our clients exactly what they want in the most laid-back and fun environment possible. With that in mind, here’s a little more about us:
Hey, there! I’m Cara Beth. I am a wife to a handsome bearded guy and mother to way too many rescue animals. Most days you can find me in my home office rockin’ some fuzzy slippers, a top knot and yoga pants. If you find me in a pair of heels it’s because someone has kidnapped me and forced them on me, so please send help. I secretly wish I could sing and dance; you might even catch me bustin’ a move at your reception. My favorite thing to shoot these days are detail shots. Skinny Pop is my favorite snack food ever. Spanx, button down shirts and gluten are my nemeses. My personality is super laid back and therefore my style of shooting is as well. It’s rare that I pose people for portraits. I would much rather tell you to sing or dance, or tell me a funny story so I can catch you acting naturally.
I started this business (formerly known as Cara Beth Studio) after quitting my full time desk job back in 2011. It was a scary leap of faith, but I’m so glad I did! I have met so many wonderful people along the way! I love booking couples who are passionately in love, who love to lay it all on the line, and who dare to get a little crazy with me during their session! Initially I said, “I will never be a wedding photographer,” and now I can’t shoot enough! So if you are crazy in love and ready to embarrass yourself on the dance floor with me, I’m your gal! 🙂
Hello! I am the aforementioned bearded guy, but I acknowledge that Cara MAY be a bit biased in her description. I go by my last name, Buie, and have for so long that if you ask for Brent I probably won’t answer. Even Cara calls me Buie! In many ways I am the exact opposite of my wife. I’m still laid back, but let’s just say that I read the directions first and I follow the recipe the first time. She is the Dharma to my Greg, but I wouldn’t have it any other way – And I may have just shown my age a bit there. I never thought I would find myself running a photography business. Photography was always Cara’s thing, and I left it at that for the early years of our marriage. But after leaving my previous job to return to school, I suddenly had some free time on my hands . . . which Cara promptly filled! It’s been my experience that she likes to do that for me. Anyway, I started assisting her with weddings and learning the ins-and-outs of photography and before I completely understood what was happening I found myself enjoying the process and everything that comes with it. So, here we are, Louisiana photographers. Capturing a beautiful moment and preserving it feels great, but it is so much more about the clients I have been able to help along the way. And I truly look forward to meeting you, too.
Here are some questions that should help you get to know us a little better.
CB: It’s actually kind of nice when he goes into his own office and leaves me alone. 😉 I kid. No seriously, though, I love working with him. We are both very independent and have our own schedules during the day and then hang out in the evenings after shoots. My favorite thing is having him there with me to talk to while we shoot weddings together. Best thing ever!
BB: Having business meetings in our pajamas . . . which is nice. But seriously, I actually love it. I thought we’d be sick of each other by now, but it has been just the opposite.
CB: Give me sand. Give me ocean. It doesn’t really matter where as long as I’m on a beach.
BB: Anywhere with my lovely wife is fine with me. But seriously… Scotland for the history or Italy for the food.
CB: You can usually find me doing 1 of these 4 things at any given time:: feeding my quilt addiction, eating skinny pop, scooping up bunny poo, or getting dirty in the garden.
BB: When I’m not studying for my masters in history, I like to cook- from burgers to filet mignon and everything in between. I also watch a lot of sports, and I am an avid reader and movie connoisseur. Also, we have added a photo booth, The Selfie Stop, to our business. I do a lot of the work with the booth.

CB: Don’t Stop Believing by Journey or anything by Pat Green
BB: American Pie by Don McLean or We Didn’t Start the Fire by Billy Joel. Go ahead, try me.
CB: independent, compassionate, stubborn, creative, loyal
BB: inquisitive, logical, funny, and hungry
