    Karen is awesome!

    If the photographer is important to your fiance(e), know that when we left our meeting with Karen, my fiance was very impressed and wanted to book her right away. I did too, of course, but it was nice to have his approval as well!

    Karen is an awesome photographer! She takes great candid shots and also tells you exactly how to pose to get the best pictures possible. She is very organized and always replied to me in a timely fashion...and I had a lot of questions! She went above and beyond what was required in the contract.

    She rearranged her schedule when the weather did not cooperate so that I could have my bridal portraits at UVA.

    If you want quality photos that capture the essence of your relationship and of your wedding day, hire Karen!

    My husband and I have found our family photographer for all of those happy moments to come in our marriage.

    Karen Gage Photography's reply:

    You guys are the absolute sweetest. I enjoyed working with you and your family immensely and hopefully we see each other in the future!

    Incredible!

    Karen is the best! We were so lucky to book her for our July wedding in Charlottesville. Karen is professional, hilarious and most importantly and stellar photographer. We could not be happier with the photos she captured of our wedding. She knew what to do, where to be and we are forever grateful for the beautiful work she did. If you’re lucky enough to book Karen for your wedding, you won’t be sorry! Thank you, Karen!

    Karen Gage Photography's reply:

    You guys are the best!! Thank you so much for having me!! You’re wedding, friends and family are too much fun. Congrats again!!

About me...

I grew up in central New York and was lucky enough as a kid to spend my summers on the legendary, St. Lawrence River. So after college when my then boyfriend (now husband) asked me to move to Richmond with him. I decided a place called the River City couldn't be that bad. I was right! Since 2006 we have called Richmond, VA home.

​My professional life began here when I accepted a studio photography position and within a year, was managing a successful, studio franchise. In my second year with the company I was approached to leave the studio and teach Photography at the high school level while still photographing (privately) on the side. I accepted that challenge in 2008 and loved every second of it for 8 years. My students were (are) amazing and I genuinely love them. I'm still in touch with many of them and their creativity and their passion challenge me to this day to pursue my craft. I'm grateful for their collaboration.

​In 2016 my side gig became a full time career when I left traditional teaching to run Karen Gage Photography, LLC., full time!

​I am more than lucky to have the love and support of my husband, Justin and Super Dad to our beautifully talented and silly daughter, Lucy. My light and muse has 2 fur siblings named Olive and Penny, and their shenanigans keep me on my toes.

I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story!

-Karen
