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.

Book Karen right now!!!
Karen is AMAZING! Period. When I saw her photos my husband and I knew that we had to book her, but man did we get even more than we expected. Karen has been incredibly flexible during COVID, including rescheduling our entire wedding and then coming to photograph our elopement at home on our original date. She truly captured our intimate ceremony and I cannot wait to see what she does next year when we get to party!Sent on 02/01/2021

Great to work with and great photos
She was very flexible with dates and locations for the engagement shoot including when we had to reschedule only a couple days out. The photos were great. Karen was thorough but never obtrusive. She turned edited images around quickly and in the time frame she told us. We have received a lot of compliments from guests on the quality of the images but also about the quality of her work day of. All around joy to work with.Sent on 10/23/2019

I cannot say enough good things about Karen. She goes above and beyond to capture every detail, moment, emotion, and is so accommodating. My fiance and I are having a winter wedding so we wanted photos in the snow to use for our save the dates but also an engagement session that was vibrant, colorful, and floral - opposite of our winter themed wedding. She was so accommodating and went above and beyond to deliver the vision we had. I am absolutely BLOWN AWAY by our engagement photos and cannot stop looking at them! Karen is personable, responsive, goofy, talented, and all around just a great person. There really is no way that you couldn't LOVE HER. She has been by far the best decision we have made in our wedding planning process and I would recommend to her anyone. We cannot wait to have her be a part of our day in February!Sent on 07/09/2019
