Karen Wise, an acclaimed wedding photographer, has been recognized as one of the best in her field by American Photo magazine (“World’s Top 10”) and The Knot (“Best in New York”). Karen’s work has appeared in New York Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings, VOGUE India, Marie Claire China, Style Me Pretty, and many more magazines. Karen has been perfecting the art of wedding photography for more than 15 years, combining technical expertise in digital and film with a fine arts finish. From 20s glamour to marigold splendor, Karen captures the unique spirit of each wedding she shoots, rendering it with stylistic elegance and emotional richness.

After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography, Karen spent five years as an apprentice with some of New York’s finest commercial still life, fashion, and portrait photographers. Having acquired this practical and creative background, Karen then launched her own business. She has since photographed celebrity weddings, including Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer’s wedding in San Francisco and Yo-Yo Ma’s daughter’s wedding in Massachusetts, five-day long Indian extravaganzas, tropical destination weddings, and many distinctive New York nuptials.

Couples choose Karen not just for the artistic quality of her work, but for her disposition behind the camera. Karen effortlessly soothes wedding-day jitters and draws out her subjects’ natural personalities, resulting in pictures that never look stiff or posed. Moreover, she has an innate gift for capturing joyful moments without intruding on the experience. Clients often remark that they “didn’t know Karen was there” when they see photos of their vows.

In addition to weddings, Karen photographs food, families and portraiture. She also teaches food photography & styling workshops collaborating with chefs and food stylists in the New York area. She loves organic, locally grown food, weekly yoga classes, and traveling (she’s originally from Montreal and speaks French too). Karen lives in Park Slope, Brooklyn with her husband and two cats.

    Karen Wise Photography-- Recommendation

    Karen Wise is a phenomenal photographer! She helped out when I was in desperate need of a photographer for my proposal and was very easy to work with. Her and her coworker played into the surprise, and were very gracious by recording the proposal, even without me asking. I was provided with more photos that I had originally thought I was going to get, and all of them were fantastic. Karen is professional, hardworking, and eager to make your day as special as possible. I would highly recommend!

    Perfect family photos

    Karen is absolutely AMAZING. She did a family photography session for me, my fiance and our puppy, Chili - and they turned out absolutely incredible. They are certainly something to be cherished for a lifetime. She was so careful to ensure she grabbed the perfect moment - even with our little guy!
