About Karen Rainier Photography

I love weddings and I want you to love yours. I love glowy golden light, vibrant unexpected color combinations, and fun people who aren't afraid to get a little dirty, be a little crazy, or go on an adventure. Modern, stylish weddings with lots of personal details and lots of laughter are my jam.

My goal is to provide a relaxed and personalized photography experience with an eclectic, fine art edge. I believe in bringing to life authentic moments that will induce nostalgia 30 years from now for my clients. I'm committed to giving my absolute best to every client. For me, the magic formula is creativity, flexibility, dedication, enthusiasm, continued education, organization and technical proficiency.

My style is authentic and fun. My work has been featured on Martha Stewart Weddings, Wedding Chicks, Buzzfeed, Brides, The Baltimore Sun, Cosmopolitan and more. I work with couples in Pennsylvania & Maryland, and I am always up for travel adventures, elopements or destination weddings.

    Look no further, you found your girl

    I don't even know where to start. Wedding planning is not something I ever desired to do, nor would I ever desire to do again. I was lucky enough to stumble upon a few people in my wedding planning process who made it bearable- one of which was Karen. First, she is one of the kindest humans on earth. Second, she is incredibly flexible. I texted her 2 days before our engagement pictures completely changing the location- no problem. She drove an hour & a half to a location where she had never shot before & ROCKED IT. I was having a meltdown about finding a makeup artist- guess who cam through with 10+ recommendations? You guessed it- Karen. Third, she is so incredibly talented. I am picky about photography. Pictures matter to me. After the big day, pictures and memories are all you really have left. She sent me the sneak peaks of our engagement session and literally blew me away. I can't wait until she photographs our wedding! Incredible talent on top of being a downright good human... what more could you ask for?

    Amazing photographer that captures vibrant and unique photos!

    Karen is absolutely amazing. Pictures are very important to our family; we have always taken a ton of pictures because we love being able to look back on them to remind us of that day/moment/vacation whatever it is! That being said, finding a great wedding photographer was important to us! We found Karen and after looking through her work I knew we could trust her to capture one of our most important milestones and she did! We were/still are blown away by the beautiful pictures she captured for us (both engagement and wedding pictures). There is something special and unique about her work - her photos are so vibrant and colorful and she captures the most precious moments. She is extremely talented and has such an eye for detail. I have not seen any wedding photographs that compare to hers. I was also very impressed with her online portals/questionnaires that she has you fill out prior to your wedding. In those questionnaires she had questions that made me think about things I wouldn’t have thought of otherwise. It allowed me to communicate with her about things such as special details of our wedding I wanted to ensure she captured and all the group shots I wanted to get. Because of those questionnaires, we were on the same page and everything went smoothly the day of. Karen and her second photographer, Angelina from Astice photography, were prompt, organized and efficient. They are both such sweet people and made us and everyone in our family feel so comfortable and relaxed. I am so happy we chose Karen, and am forever grateful that she gave us photographs of our wedding that we will be able to cherish forever. I would recommend her to anyone and will definitely go to her in the future to capture our next milestones :) Thank you Karen!

    Couldn't be happier!

    I don't know where to start! I'll be totally honest and say that hiring a photographer wasn't high on my list when planning our wedding. I would describe my husband and I as quirky and eccentric and felt like a wedding photographer wouldn't be able to capture that side of us. I thought our photos would just look staged and not natural. What I found out was that if you have a crazy talented photographer...they will capture exactly what you want! Picking Karen as my wedding photographer was easily the best decision that I made in this wedding! Besides actually marrying my husband...but it's up there! Karen is extremely creative and an expert at her craft. I was so impressed with how organized she was and how attentive she was to our wants and needs. I had a very nontraditional Halloween wedding and Karen was so responsive to our wacky ideas. She made us feel so comfortable the whole time too (posing for photos can be awkward, no?!). The actual photos blew both of us away, it was almost a surreal moment looking at them because we just couldn't believe how amazing they turned out! I'll forever be recommending to Karen to everyone I know.
