About

I love that photographs are so important to my clients and I take the work that I am entrusted to very seriously. To capture forever your unique smile.... your day of days... your first glimpse of each other... is an amazing privilege and honor.

My tag line in life is 'always grateful'. And I am. There is so much good in this world and I always try to keep my focus there.

Someone once asked me to describe my photographic style in one word. It took me a while... but the one word that I finally settled on was 'FULL'. I want my photographs to be FULL of life... FULL of beauty... FULL of emotion... FULL of surprise. And I want you to be 'FILLED' when you see them.

I am based in the Portland, OR and Columbia River Gorge area of Oeegon and Washington, but am available to travel anywhere!

The beauty was captured

Karen photographed our wedding on 11/03/23. I knew from our engagement shoot I would love the photos she would take. AND I DID! She truly has captured the best of every aspect on our day. Everything was just amazing.

Our March Wedding

We recently had the pleasure of working with Karen who captured every moment of our special day with such skill and grace.
Throughout the day, she was able to make everyone feel comfortable and at ease, which resulted in the most beautiful posed and candid photography of us, our friends, and our family. Karen was able to capture not only the big moments but also the small, intimate ones that truly made our day special.
Her skill in natural light photography is top-notch, including when on a day that has snow, rain, sunshine, and a rainbow! The final photos exceeded our expectations and we can't decide which photos to print because we love them all so much!
Thank you so much for capturing these precious memories that my husband and I will cherish for a lifetime!

The Most Beautiful Wedding Photos

We LOVED our experience with Karen! I knew we were going to love our wedding photos as soon as I got the photos back from our engagement session. Karen鈥檚 photos are super authentic, beautifully lit, minimally posed, and really capture the feeling of the moment. We had a challenging venue in terms of dealing with snow, the cold, and taking pictures in two different spaces (venue and the resort where everyone was staying), but Karen helped us stay on schedule, got all the photos we wanted, and was super quick so that nobody was out in the cold for too long. We will cherish these winter wonderland wedding pictures our entire lives and can鈥檛 thank Karen enough!
