About

Hey! You look like somebody that believes that a happy, love-filled marriage is so much more than a beautiful wedding day... although I'll take any excuse to eat cake. My name is Kara, and I'm a traveling wedding and elopement photographer based in New York City (with a passport that goes everywhere).

I believe that photography is more than a vendor to check off your list. I absolutely love connecting with couples on a personal level and getting to know each other throughout the entire planning process. I want to hear all about how you and your fiance met, your dating years, how they proposed, and every single detail for your big day! I'll be there for you from before your wedding even begins, all the way through you busting a move out on the dance floor. So for all those butterfilies that you think can't possibly be captured by a camera- I can do it.

My shooting style is classic + candid, centered on emotions. I'm passionate about retelling couple鈥檚 love stories through my detailed images. I loves the intimate moments, big laughs, and everything in between. I will capture each fleeting look, momentary emotion, and real interaction- naturally, as they occur. You can expect to end up with hundreds of laughing, happiness-ridden, emotion-filled photos, as well as plenty of traditional photos showcasing the beauty of your wedding day.

There is so much joy and excitement in store for you- I can't wait to celebrate along with you! Pop over to my website to find more examples of my work, read blogs filled with photos, and reach out directly through my contact form!





Services Offered

Every wedding package comes with a Pre-Planning Consultation, at least 6 hours of wedding day coverage, a second shooter, and hi-res digital images, fully edited in the Kara McCurdy signaure style and delivered in an online gallery.

For couples looking for a little extra coverage, Kara does provide additional hours and third shooter options.

  • Fine art gicle茅 prints

Lovely Engagement Session!

From our first Zoom "meeting" to receiving our engagement photos, Kara was kind, professional, and truly helped us feel relaxed (we were a bit nervous!). She truly captured our personalities and provided us with keepsakes we'll forever cherish. We couldn't be more elated with our photos and are forever grateful!

unbelievably amazing artist!

Kara is an artist. Not only is she punctual and professional, but her product is a complete masterpiece. She has this way of making even the awkwardest of couples feel comfy and at home, and really lets their love lead in photos. She provided just enough creative direction to get us used to hearing the snap of the camera, but hit the perfect balance to make sure our photos were authentic and genuine to our relationship, without appearing overly posed. She was so enthusiastic with the most positive and radiant energy, and was so happy to join us on an adventure full of antics that we felt memorialized our relationship beautifully. Her editing style is beautiful, producing polished photos that still have some real level of rawness to them. Kara is AMAZING, 10000/10 recommend.
