Carrie Nuttall is an American photographer best known for her works in the entertainment and music industry. Born and raised in Santa Monica, California, she aspired to become a photographer, especially in the entertainment industry. In the mid-1990s, she began working as an assistant of the Canadian band Rush’s photographer. The band’s drummer, Neil Peart, was going through a family tragedy when Carrie was introduced to him. They eventually came closer and fell in love, getting married in 2000. Around the same time, Neil announced that he was coming out of the retirement and rejoined the band. Carrie accompanied her husband during their recording sessions in Toronto and worked as the personal photographer to Neil, initially to only capture some photos of him working. She had wanted to open an exhibition of his photos while he worked in the studio. Eventually, the photo collection took shape of a photo book named Rhythm and Light, which was released in 2005 and became widely popular among the drummer’s fans and the industry professionals. Carrie has worked as a celebrity and entertainment photographer and she continues to work to this date. She had a daughter with Neil, named Olivia, and she currently lives with her, also inheriting Neil’s fortune after his demise in 2020.
