Hire Karen and don't look back

Working with Karen was an absolute joy from start to finish. Not only is she an exceptional photographer, but she's also a true partner throughout the entire wedding journey.

Karen's attention to detail is like having an extra set of eyes on everything that's happening. Her genuine care for you and your special day is evident right from the initial phone call when you're planning the schedule, all the way to the moment she delivers those breathtaking wedding photos.

Whenever we had questions leading up to the big day, Karen was our go-to person. Whether it was deciding on a first look or finding the right coordinator, her insights were always spot-on and incredibly valuable.

One of the standout qualities about Karen is her flexibility. She seamlessly adapted to our changing event timings in the weeks leading up to the wedding, making the whole experience stress-free.

Without a doubt, we're planning to continue working with Karen for all our family photography needs in the future. If anyone is on the hunt for the very best, I wholeheartedly recommend Karen. Her talent, dedication, and genuine partnership make her an exceptional choice for capturing life's most precious moments.

We held our wedding at the Hilton Santa Barbara. If you are having yours there, Karen definitely knows the best spots for all your photos!

Kind, Patient, Professional, Phenomenal Photographer

Karen was an absolute joy to work with. We got married at the Santa Barbara Courthouse in June 2023, not only did she take AMAZING photos she assisted me with vendor referrals, which was so helpful, making our small wedding easy to plan. We spent about an hour before the ceremony taking pictures of my husband and I, she knew all the best places on property to take gorgeous photos. We were at ease, she was so kind, patient, and understood what I was looking for in wedding photos. After the ceremony she was able to wrangle family (not an easy task) and capture all of the group photos we were looking for. I highly recommend Karen to anyone looking to capture authentic, gorgeous photos. She's the best.
