Kari is fantastic to work with!! She was so understanding of all the changes during the 2020 wedding season and was flexible, working out a plan tailored to our needs. In addition to being extremely talented and taking absolutely beautiful photos, Kari had great suggestions for logistics like photo locations, important shots, and creating a schedule, AND was fantastic interacting with our families. She makes you feel comfortable and beautiful in front of the camera and is earnestly excited to be there with you, which makes it such a joyous experience!
Kari also shot in every kind of light and weather with us (Thanks late summer Michigan...) - overcast, drizzle, full sun, under a tent, etc and all the pictures look amazing. It takes a true professional to take gorgeous photos so confidently and successfully in every type of lighting!Sent on 09/08/2020

10/10 Would Reccommend
I was a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding this passed year. Kari is a great photographer and made me feel very comfortable in front of the camera (which I normally am not). She uses her time very effectively, including getting creative with the wedding party when she had some free time between photo shoots. :)Sent on 08/06/2020

Can't go wrong with Kari!
Kari Paine is a wonderful wedding photographer! Gave great posing direction. Really fun to work with. Worked great with our families and our wedding party. Was creative in finding different corners of our venue to get lots of different photos. Looking back at the photos seeing that Kari captured everything (like cake cutting and walking down the aisle) but I don't even remember her being there so she didn't detract from the moment. Looking back at the photos months later still brings so much joy. You can't go wrong in hiring Kari to capture your big day.Sent on 08/05/2020
