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 destination wedding photographer based in New York City.
I believe that photography is more than a vendor to check off your list. I absolutely love connecting with brides 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! Check out my website and be sure to send me an email to get started.
Every wedding package comes with a Pre-Planning Consultation, at least 6 hours of wedding day coverage, a second shooter, and unlimited hi-res digital images, fully edited and delivered in an online gallery. In addition to booking a wedding photography session, couples can also book a boudoir shoot, engagement shoot, or trash-the-dress shoot. For couples looking for a little extra coverage, Kara does provide additional hours and second 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 shoot couples on their big day is no problem at all for her.

We got lucky and won a mini session with Kara!Sent on 07/08/2019
She was super flexible on scheduling the date, sent a very professional breakdown of our mini session , and helped us come up with a fun theme for the shoot! We ended up doing a pizza and beer picnic in the park.
The shoot was super fun and natural. She has a great eye for composition and is great at suggesting poses that feel natural and look great in photos. Kara made us laugh so much during the shoot and kept up the conversation that whole time we didn’t even notice that our time was up!
She was just as excited about our shoot as we were and just in few days we had our photos!
We were so happy with the results and her customer service, that we decided to book her for our wedding!

Awesome collaboration - beautiful photos
Kara was AWESOME to work with from the moment I inquired about her services. She answered an abundant amount of questions and never put pressure on us to make a decision or insist on additional products/services. Offering an array of packages and a la carte options to fit what you need for the day. She takes such a personal interest and care, understanding your personalities and wants for the day, and walking you through best options/advice she's encountered already to try to help things run smoothly and manage your expectations. Her photos themselves are natural and beautiful - I think candids are her strong suit: being able to capture true joy, emotion and details during your celebration. I think as she continues to grow as a photographer, her scope of events and coverage will only propel her in capturing more creative candids, posed potraits, and adding to an awesome portfolio. With the amount of care she puts into her work and her clients, you can tell this is her passion and talent!Sent on 08/16/2019
