About Kara Kamienski Photography

I’m a happily married wife of 11 years to a hot farm boy, a proud mommy of a diva of a daughter and a hilarious son, and a blissfully happy wedding photographer! I thrive on coffee, wearing boots, the music of Glee, Apple computers, and my faith. I despise grocery shopping, running, and mean people!

Although I have a teaching degree from the University of Illinois (go Illini!), my faith and my sister gave me the confidence to pursue this dream. I have been shooting professionally for 5 years. I have shot over 120 weddings in my first 5 years. And I’m not even close to being sick of it! Shooting weddings has allowed me to fall in love: with photography, with the wedding industry, and with my husband all over again.

I love to smile, I love to laugh, and I love ‘love stories’. And I’d love to help capture yours. Thank you for considering me for your wedding day!

    Kara and team are PERFECT!

    You will not find better than Kara and her team! She is incredibly easy to work with before, during and after your wedding. She made us incredibly comfortable and captured so many moments we didn't know! Her poor second shooter even helped fix my train to go down the aisle! Perfect photography team!

    Relaxed & Fun

    Have you ever been a part of a wedding party where you get sick and tired of taking corny posed photos and your cheeks hurt from fake smiling so long? THIS IS NOT THAT. Kara and her team are INCREDIBLE to work with and make the whole experience fun. I met Kara while she was shooting one of my friends weddings so naturally when I got engaged she was the first photographer to pop into my mind. My husband is not the photo shoot type but Kara got him to crack a smile and look so natural with ease. Fast forward to our wedding day where Kara nick-named all the groomsmen and captured amazing moments for us. BONUS- when my veil needed to be pinned in more securely before our ceremony Kara saved the day. PHOTOG + HAIR DRESSER??? YEP. The overall experience was AMAZING and I cannot stress enough how EASY it was working with the KKP team (all brides need vendors that are easy to work with am I right?!) We LOVE Kara and are so happy with our photos! We cannot say enough good things & would recommend KKP to anyone!!

    Kara was absolutely wonderful throughout the whole experience! Not only does she have beautiful photos, but she is a beautiful person inside and out! She was easy to talk to and connect with leading up to the wedding, as well as the day of.

    Both my husband and I feel unsure of what to do in photos, but Kara gave clear directions with every detail. We never questioned whether or not our bodies, faces, or surroundings were ok, because she was clear and encouraging with each picture.

    Kara took care in directing our families and bridal parties as well, and she was efficient with each picture. She made everyone feel comfortable and happy the day of, and she was extremely organized.

    I cannot wait to see the prints for our wedding, but I am confident they will be beautiful. I highly recommend using Kara as your photographer!
