CONGRATULATIONS! Your wedding promises to be one of the best & most magical days of your life! You’ll pick out a stunning dress, carry elegant flowers, meet the man of your dreams at the end of the aisle, and party the night away with your closest friends & family. As wonderful and fabulous as your wedding day will be – it will also be one other thing that most people don’t count on – fast. From the moment you wake up, your day will whirl by at break-neck speed until you blink your eyes and it’s over. I can say that from personal experience, because my wedding day disappeared in a matter of moments. Oh-so-quickly it was gone.
And that’s where I come in. I want to be there for you to capture all of the special moments – and most importantly: the moments in between the moments. The happy & excited glances, the jitters & nerves, the tears of happiness [and not just your tears, but your parent’s tears, your Grandma’s tears, & your best friend’s tears], and your glorious celebration at the end of the night. I want to be there to capture it all for you – so that when you day whizzes by & your cake is eaten, your dress is stored away, and your flowers dry-out, you’ll still have your memories of the beautiful moments that made up your wedding day.

Absolutely amazing! ❤️
I don’t even know where to start! Our wedding day was not what we planned, we had to change our venue, caterer, and replan the whole thing in 6 weeks so mildly stressful. However, the one thing we didn’t have to stress about was Kara! She was so great to work with and was so willing to deal with whatever changes we threw at her. Our day truly ended up being truly amazing and Kara captured every moment perfectly! I had previously been in 2 weddings that Kara did so I knew our photos would be amazing but they were even better than anticipated. We love all of our photos and could not be happier with how everything turned out! Kara is simply amazing, kind, organized, professional, and just great to work with. She’ll be your biggest cheerleader on your day and make you feel like a million bucks! Thank you Kara once again you did not disappoint! ❤️Sent on 09/02/2020

Kara photographed my wedding in June 2020. She did a phenomenal job and we are so happy that she was able to photograph our wedding. Needless to say, the Pandemic brought up some concerns in the weeks and months leading up to the wedding. Kara was always ahead of the game and sent out reassuring emails regarding the ever changing circumstances. She put our minds at ease and also offered helpful suggestions for brides who were postponing or going through with a smaller wedding during this unprecedented time.
Kara met with my husband and I at a Starbucks and she shared her portfolio with us and certainly took in-depth notes. Shortly after the wedding she published a blog post that included our love story and some highlight photos from our wedding day. It was a wonderful touch!
The day of our wedding she was so prompt, that I was worried that I was behind schedule because I hadn't even started to apply my makeup yet. I'm so glad that she was able to take the time to photograph my dress, bouquet, jewlery, and invitation as those photos are beautiful! Kara also provides you with a wedding day schedule, which is very helpful. After the ceremony, we took photos at Braddock trails and I'm so thankful that Kara was willing to trek through the woods to capture these shots. The reception photos are spectacular as well and they truly show how my husband, myself, and our guests felt on that special day. All of the the photos she took turned out even better than what I could have imagined. We will cherish these photos and the blog post for a lifetime to come.
I have already decided on making a gallery wall in our apartment to dedicate to wedding photos, because it's too difficult to narrow it down to just a couple of wedding photos to frame.
I should also add that Kara's turnaround time was unheard of. She had a few photos up on Facebook the night of our wedding, which I was so eager to check out after leaving the reception! Then just a few days later she had our blog post written, and we were on our honeymoon when we received the email with all of our photos! Amazing! We (as in myself, my husband, our families, and even all of our Facebook friends) highly recommend Kara!Sent on 07/14/2020
