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

Professional and fun photographer
Kari did amazing work for us. We couldn't be happier with the photos we received and can't recommend her services enough.
She was willing to go above and beyond to take memorable photos. For example we had lawn games at our outdoor wedding, and Kari laid down on the ground to get some really fun action shots. She also did a great job coaching us on how to move and express ourselves to make sure our photos turned out great.
Several friends and family complemented us on Kari's photos. We have no doubt that if you work with her you won't regret it!Sent on 10/23/2020

Capturing weddings brings me joy. Many years ago, a college friend asked if I would casually take some photographs at her wedding--something I had never done before--and I have never looked back since. What could be a better day of work than witnessing people on the happiest day of their life, and being trusted to capture that?
When I'm not taking pictures, I am always reading a book or hanging out with my sister and her dog, Jade.
