About Kara McCurdy Photography

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’s 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.


Kara McCurdy, owner and photographer, received a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Photography. While Kara is based in New York, traveling to far off locations to capture couples on their big day is no problem at all for her.

  • Fully edited, hi-res digital files
  • Fine art gicleé prints
  • Handmade real wooden frames

    Engagement shoot

    Kara was extremely wonderful to work with. She was quick to respond and flexible when we had to reschedule the first time due to inclement weather. During the shoot, she was a natural at making us feel comfortable and incorporated everything we wanted. Her photos are beautiful and warm and everything I could have hoped for.

    Hire Kara immediately.

    Oh my gosh, we can’t sing Kara’s praises enough. Truly. My fiancée found her through an Instagram hashtag while looking for photographers for our engagement shoot in Brooklyn. We were immediately drawn to Kara’s vibrant and magnetic personality which comes through so clearly in both her work and in her online presence. It was a non-negotiable for us to hire a photographer who prioritizes diversity and inclusivity and it was obvious that Kara shares these same values. Her portfolio captures every kind of love—celebrating couples of all races, genders, sexualities, shapes and sizes. Neither of us love getting our picture taken, so we were initially a bit anxious for this shoot but Kara made us feel comfortable, safe, and confident in front of the camera almost instantly. We were totally in love with her energy and vibe, a perfect match for us— bubbly, easygoing, and a little bit silly! Kara is not only wildly talented but she is genuine, supportive, and so so much fun. She has an absolutely infectious personality and shine that just makes you want to be around her. I’m not kidding you when I say I want her as my new best friend. OH, and of course we are over the moon with how our photos turned out— Kara killed it. If we didn’t already have a wedding photographer we would hire her in a heartbeat, but we are certainly planning to book her for other future photography needs. Kara is the best of the best. Book her immediately.
