meet our team

CC Street Studio (formerly Carly Daniel Photography) is a husband & wife team who is passionate about creating mind-blowing images their clients will treasure forever.  Carly’s career began at age 10 when she became the official assistant to her wedding photographer father and fell in love with photography.  Almost 12 years later, she met a smart, handsome USC graduate named Chriss, and launched Carly Daniel Photography.  Chriss joined the business in 2008, and later that year we found ourselves being photographed during our own engagement session.  1 wedding, 1 pregnancy, and 1 baby later, here we are!  We know how it feels to be on the other side of the lens & we will make it an easy & fun experience!


We value beautifully composed family or bridal portraits, but we thrive on capturing  emotional moments that reveal the real “you.”  Our style is a fusion of modern photographic trends, slightly traditional portraiture, and photojournalism.  Basically, sun flare & back lighting but not ALL sun flare and back lighting.  Candid, but not ALL candid.


We bring a combined 30 years of photography experience to our business.  We are honored to be inducted into The Knot Hall of Fame after winning the Best of Weddings award for 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016.  We have also received the 2010 & 2011 Wedding Wire Bride’s Choice Award.  We have been featured in numerous blogs & publications including: The Knot, Style Me Pretty, Carats & Cake, Orange County Bride, The Huffington Post, and The Orange County Register. We look forward to welcoming you into our lives and blowing your mind with our awesome imagery!
