Congratulations on your engagement!
All weddings are one of a kind and every experience will be tailored to your needs. I value dialogue so we can imagine your big day, visually, together. As we start this journey, we will think of every single detail to make your engagement shoot and wedding day your own.
From film to digital photography, gifs to highlight videos, same day edits to fine art prints, I will be discreet, floating around and grabbing genuine moments. Capturing your happiest memories is what makes me the happiest.
I will capture your big day through high-resolution images, which will be available as digital files for easy sharing, or as fine art prints. I book only one event per day to give you and your wedding party the attention you deserve, with additional hours wherever needed. I have options for multiple locations and destination weddings, as love does not have a travel limit. My photographs can be given as flush mounts, canvas prints, and even as save-the-date and thank-you cards for your friends and family to keep. Outside of the ceremony and reception, I am more than happy to do engagements, wedding portraits, rehearsal dinners, and trash-the-dress sessions.

Hiring Kari was the best decision we made for our engagement party and our wedding day! Kari is a true professional and very communicative throughout the entire process, which was a huge help (seriously!), and he was also extremely accommodating and flexible to all of our needs. Kari caught all of the moments we want to remember forever and the photos turned out beautifully. His photography truly is art - all the photographs perfectly captured the personality and joy of the engagement party and wedding day. He was never in the way of the spontaneous, but he still knew how to command a crowd (what a great combo!). Thank you, thank you a million times. We could not be happier! We will treasure the photos for the rest of our lives.
Kari Bjorn's reply:Thank you very much for the kind words, Nanna! I had so much fun photographing your engagement party and wedding and chatting with your mom about Denmark haha. All the best to you and Jean!

Working with Kari has been a delight from start to finish. We got engaged in Oct 2020 and wanted to take pictures ASAP in order to capture the beautiful foliage of Upstate NY as well as our newly engaged bliss. We contacted Kari within a week of our engagement and had a date, time and place set to have a photo shoot within days! We are new to the area and he suggested the location and time of day in order to make the best of the surroundings and the pictures were STUNNING! With the engagement package we received 27 photos and 3 gifs for use on social media and for printing. We also got the photos 48 hours after the shoot!
Kari is professional, punctual and responds within hours to our messages. He is easy to get along with and made us comfortable throughout the whole experience. He used his expertise and ideas to frame our shoot and was receptive to our ideas and vision. The result was amazing art that we will cherish for a lifetime and share with our family and friends!
His rate was also extremely affordable for the quality of photos we received. If you need a photographer for anything, message Kari!Sent on 10/18/2020

Beautiful Engagement and Wedding photos
Kari recently took our engagement photos and they turned out absolutely beautiful and so we hired him for our wedding as well. We're in love with the pictures and they captured our special moments perfectly. Great attention to detail and also a respect for delivering on our vision and capturing the dynamic of mine and my husband’s relationship. Our session didn’t feel forced and was very friendly. Our photos were delivered quickly as well.Sent on 09/29/2020
