Our wedding was captured so beautifully by Karen!! She helped us plan out the ceremony and was there from the beginning giving us tips and suggestions for vendors. Her knowledge of light and angles was amazing! We are so happy with her work and her assistant Hannah! She managed to make our pictures romantic, beautiful and fun! She was also super nice and laid back. They managed to get many pictures where we forget they were even there! Then the next day we got 50 previews and were already in love with the results. The rest of them came a few months later and we were blown away. So talented!! We are grateful we found her!

Where do I even begin? My wife and I were lucky enough to find Karen on our own for our destination wedding at a coffee farm just outside of Kona. It’s hard to ignore someone with a 5 star rating, isn’t it?

Beginning with our correspondences, we were blown away with the promptness in her email replies, and knew right away that Karen was the choice for us. Her questionnaire was thorough and actually enjoyable to fill out.

On the day of the wedding, from the moment she arrived, she and her assistant Hannah became part of the glue that held the day together. Their calm demeanors helped keep myself and the bride in a state of ease and bliss, thereby freeing us to fully embrace and enjoy the moment at hand.

Karen had many great ideas for poses, and she was great at gently directing us the right positions. She kept the shoot moving, completing an impressive number of different poses in the short first look period before our ceremony.

Oh, and then there’s the quality of the work itself. We were blown away with the quality of the sneak peak and are like two kids at Christmas waiting for the rest of our presents to come (I know the wait will be worth it!).

All in all, I can’t recommend Karen Loudon enough. If you’re someone without experience in front of a camera, she will put you at ease and help create the magical memories that your magical day truly deserves.

We are truly grateful and can’t recommend her enough.

Karen was the photographer at our recent wedding on the big island. She was absolutely amazing to work with and captured the most beautiful moments from our special day. We were planning a destination wedding and Karen was always available and very responsive by phone and email. She had us pick out shots we really liked and post it on Pinterest, and then had a copy of those images with her at our wedding and was able to capture everything we wanted. When we arrived on the big island, we met with her in person to go over all the details of what we envisioned. She came fully prepared and had great ideas on everything. She and her assistant took getting ready photos and truly exceeded my very high expectations. She is very easy to work with, calm, organized, and captured light and sunsets in a way I had never seen done before. She even drove us in her car to another site to get sunset pictures. Despite unplanned delays and flooding at our wedding, Karen was very flexible and made sure we got all the images we wanted. She was very efficient and such a pleasure to work with. I also did a lot of price comparisons before we booked her, and she was very reasonable for the high quality of the product you get. We got a sneak peek with around 50 images from our wedding the day after our big day. She also provides the print release for everything and a USB of all the images, making it super easy and cheap to get the pictures printed from any site. We also have an online gallery that our entire family was able to view and order from. Karen is also making our wedding album where we get the final look and pick of the pictures. She has such creative, artistic ideas and we cannot wait to see the wedding album. Hiring Karen as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. She went above and beyond in every single thing and even came to our rehearsal, so she knew my family and friends before our wedding day! I would highly recommend her to anyone!!

Karen shot a wedding at our venue, and as an event coordinator, I could have not been more pleased with her attention to detail and passion in her work. The photos are gorgeous, but also working with her is so easy and enjoyable. We will be recommending her to future couples. Mahalo, Karen!
