    Do yourself a favor and book Karen!!

    We did a destination wedding to Kona, Hawaii and found Karen thorough our wedding venue's blog. When first looking at her photos compared to other photographers, we instantly knew she would be the best fit for us and deliver fantastic photos as well. All the positive reviews which describe her down to earth, personable and professionalism are spot on.
    We've never hired a photographer before and wasn't sure what to do and how to pose, but Karen and her assistant, Hannah, were great with guiding us along the way and making us feel relaxed and at home. When spontaneous things happened (tearing up before the wedding and impromptu dancing), Karen and Hannah would spring out of nowhere to capture the moment.
    Even with her computer in the shop and on a loaner laptop, she was extremely punctual and gave us sneap peek shots within a few days. And of course, the shots looked amazing!! We are excited for all the shots to come our way. Thank you Karen and Hannah!
    So do yourself a favor and book her now! :)

    Super experience

    Karen photographed our elopement on Big Island in September 2019 and did also a session of honeymoon photography. We couldn't have wished for a better experience! She was very well prepared for both photoshoots, had great ideas and guided us perfectly, as neither of us is used to having our pictures taken. But in front of Karen's camera, everyone can feel like a supermodel! ;)
    We got a selection of sneak peek photos the next day and they were much more than we could have hoped for! Karen has a perfect eye for lights and colours and every picture looks like it could be in the cover of a magazine. Highly suggested!

    Big Sky, Montana Wedding

    I got married in Big Sky, Montana back in July of 2019. She captured some pictures that were just simply breathtaking. She does beautiful work and is very professional. I couldn't have asked for a better person to capture my special day.
