Kari is seriously the best in the business. Her work is amazing and beautiful! One thing couples may not thinking about when planning a wedding is that the photographer keeps your special day "on track" and on schedule. Kari is amazing at this! Having been an attendant in a wedding where Kari was the photographer and also having her photograph our wedding, I can honestly say this is one of the many reasons Kari is so great. She is very thorough but will also keep your timeline on track and get you to the altar on time ;)Sent on 09/16/2015
Kari Douma Photography's reply:Thank you so much for the wonderful compliments! Helping to plan the schedule for each wedding we photograph is something we take seriously, and after years of experience photographing weddings, we definitely know what works best (and how to keep your day running smoothly and on time, without you or your family feeling rushed). We really appreciate your kind words and recommendation!

Kari does a great job directing during photographs and the quality of her pictures are spectacular and can't be beat. She has such a great eye for what will end up looking amazing in photographs.

Kari Douma Photography's reply:Thanks Stephanie! It was such a fun day (even despite the rain). The location and decorations for your outdoor wedding were perfect and so beautiful! I really enjoyed getting to know you and Dustin and capturing your day from start to finish to tell the story of your wedding day!

I couldn't be happier with our wedding photos done by Kari Douma Photography! Kari was able to capture the exact style we were hoping for, which I like to describe as: elegant, romantic, timeless, fun and fresh. We were blown away with the wedding album, it's absolutely stunning. Working with Kari and her staff was always a pleasure; it was like working with a great friend. On the day of the wedding, Kari and staff were extremely helpful, they provided great support and guidance- I felt fortunate to have them there with me. I recommend Kari Douma Photography every chance I get, because I know it was one of the best decisions I made when planning my wedding. The prices are very competitive, and considering the excellent service and quality you will get, it's well worth it!Sent on 08/10/2015
Kari Douma Photography's reply:Thank you so much for the kind words and recommendation Sara! We were thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph your beautiful wedding (at one of our favorite venues, The Dearborn Inn!) We really enjoyed capturing the story of your wedding day in photographs (and a gorgeous album) that you'll cherish forever.
Kari has just a great vision for photography. She took the Graduation photos of my step-daughter and we are so happy with how they turned out. I just love her style. If I ever get around to doing family photos again - she would be my first choice!
