    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. :)

    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!

Kari Paine

Head Photographer

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.
