2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner
$5,000 Most Popular Price

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!

    Lovely person and lovely pictures!!

    We needed a photographer for our engagement pictures in NYC, and we could not have picked a better person than Kara! She was so accomodating, made us feel comfortable and was prompt with the picture deivery. Above all, the pictures were absolutely beautiful!!! We definitely recommend if you are looking for an amazing, reasonably-priced photographer in the NYC area.

    She was awesome

    Words cannot describe how awesome Kara is! Our first meeting with Kara, we knew we found the perfect photographer for our wedding. She was very attentive during our first meeting and oriented us to all the details of the days leading to the wedding and wedding day. Kara made us feel comfortable with the whole process so that we knew exactly what to expect. Our conversations and the question we were asked allowed Kara to understand our interests and what we were looking for in our photos. Such a great relationship working with Kara, she made our whole photography experience great and it was so fun working with her!! She made sure we were able to get shots of everything we wanted and made the whole process feel stress free. Kara is AMAZING!! Would 10000% recommend her and already recommended her to all our friends =)
