About

$3,900 Most Popular Price

Hi there! I'm Karen, wife to my college sweetheart, mama of two beautiful kids and golden doodle, and lover of tacos, beach skies, and road trips! I know planning a wedding can be fun and also a lot of work. And choosing your photographer is a big decision that will have a lasting impact – with how the wedding day flows and also how you will remember the moments afterward.

That is why my top priority is helping my couples enjoy their wedding day memories over and over again through beautiful pictures to not only strengthen their marriage but leave a legacy for their children and grandchildren. I love making sure the wedding experience is as stress-free and fun as possible - from our first phone call, to your engagement session, your wedding day, and the delivery of your beautiful heirloom photo album. I am here for you and can't wait to meet you!

    An incredible photography experience!

    My now fiancé, Colin, found Karen on Instagram when searching for a photographer for his proposal. As visitors to Charleston, it was important the photographer could recommend a great location for Colin to pop the question as we both had never been to the city before. What Karen did for us was far beyond our expectations!
    On engagement day, Colin was leading me to the location (boardwalk at the battery) where he was going to pop the question. As we were walking to this location, it immediately began pouring rain. Shortly after we arrived and Colin dropped down on one knee, I was introduced to Karen. Karen celebrated us and offered to take a few more photos of us in the pouring rain. She recognized the weather wasn’t on our side for one of the biggest moments in our life and offered to meet up again the following day to get some more shots when we were dry.
    We spent the next day taking photos around downtown Charleston and spent a couple hours with Karen. It was this time spent where Karen made us feel so comfortable – we probably had more fun just getting to spend time with Karen but the photographs speak for themselves.
    Karen’s genuine personality and relaxed approach are sure to make your photography experience one you’ll never forget! She’ll forever be a great part of our story.
    Colin & Blaire

    The best photographer

    Karen is phenomenal to work with. She just has the sweetest personality and is obviously experienced with her craft. Karen did both of engagement photos and our wedding photos! Stylistically, I love the lighter, brighter, romantic feeling to the photos. I also LOVE how quickly she gets several photos for a great preview out! Her turnaround times have been amazing and we have enjoyed working with her so much!

    Wow, Kelle! Your wedding at Old Wide Awake Plantation was so so beautiful, and it was such an honor to celebrate with y'all! Thank you for your kind words!!

    AMAZING! Karen is so lovely!

    We found Karen on WeddingWire because we were having our wedding out of town. From the very beginning she's been amazing, takes the time to get to know you and your person. We had engagement pictures with her and they were absolutely amazing and helped us get ready for the big day! On our wedding day she ended up recommending a great car rental that I was able to surprise my husband with. We can't wait to see all the pictures, but here are a few we've got back so far!

    Karen Schanely Photography's reply:

    Sam, thank you for leaving such a thoughtful review! I'm still swooning over your newly wed pictures in downtown Charleston - you both were AMAZING! Please please visit Charleston again soon!
