Karyn and Joe were the perfect wedding photographers. We had a BLAST working with them on our wedding day! Karyn and Joe also went above and beyond the typical photographer duties. They helped us plan our wedding timeline down to every last detail and kept us on schedule the day of. They even spent time cruising around Holland before our wedding to make sure we had the perfect spots for photos! I would highly recommend Karyn May Photography services to every happy couple planning their wedding. They captured every special moment into beautiful photographs that will help us relive that magical day for the rest of our lives :)

Our top priority once my husband and I started planning our wedding was to book a great photographer. We went to many bridal shows an met many photographers. While many of them looked good, Karyn and Joe stuck out to us among all of the rest. They are both some of the sweetest people you will ever meet! They were so personable, warm, and easy to get along with. Immediately after meeting them, we knew we wanted to work with them!
Before our engagement shoot, we had a lot of conversation back and forth about shooting locations. Karyn had some really great ideas and insight and listened to our preferences to help find the perfect location. Our engagement shoot was so much fun and Karyn and Joe captured some really great moments, including some cute ones with our new puppy.
The day of our wedding, Karyn and Joe were fantastic! They got shots of us getting ready separately as well as candid shots before our first look as well other little details we hadn’t even though of. We had picked out several shooting locations for before the ceremony with our bridal party, but unfortunately we were running a little late and were rushed for getting to all of our sites. They remained flexible and were able to get phenomenal shots at the spots we were still able to make it to.
They were very organized throughout parts that could have been chaotic (family portraits). They got shots of the reception venue before it was filled with people which were absolutely gorgeous. They were able to get such entertaining dancing pictures of our guests as well as ones with people mingling. We, (as well as our guests) were so impressed with how they were able to capture so many beautiful moments of the day and did not insert themselves into the center of everything like I’ve seen with other wedding photographers. Booking Karyn and Joe was the best decision we made during our planning process! Thank you so much Karyn and Joe!!

Karyn was wonderful to work with! She and her husband Joe are such a great pair to entrust your biggest memories to. They put my husband and me completely at ease and allowed us to completely be ourselves--they captured every detail and every emotion! My whole family was impressed with their professionalism and critical eye which is wonderful and rare! I cannot recommend Karyn enough for any event. Don't trust your photos to anyone! Trust them to someone who is artistic and creative but also an expert at utilizing natural light and keeping your photos true to life, but even more beautiful!

Professional Network & Endorsements

I was thrilled when a client told me she'd booked Karyn for one of my weddings this season. Being very familiar with her work, I knew the results would be fantastic. What I didn't know to expect was the level of dedication she and her husband put in on the actual wedding day. Weather was not cooperating (rain during a planned outdoor ceremony!), but Karyn and Joe quickly adjusted and worked so hard to get our bride and groom photos that would be stunning regardless. And when a bit of sunshine decided to peak through the clouds? Karyn saw the great photo opportunity and took our couple out for a photo session in some of the most beautiful light ever. I highly recommend them!

I cannot say enough great things about Karyn and Joe of Karyn May Photography! Not only are they courteous, professional, efficient and uber talented...they are also two of the kindest, most generous people I have ever met. With their help, my work is beautifully showcased on my website and social media platforms. I've also had the privilege of working with some of their brides. The photos of these weddings are incredible and these brides couldn't rave enough about their photos and this team of photographers! The photos are clear, colors are so crisp... simply put - Just Stunning!

We've worked with Karyn and Joe for many years and they continue to be at the top of our list of recommended photographers. Their clean and elegant photography style is timeless, and working with them is always a joy. Karyn and Joe have this magic ability to take the stress out of any situation which is a gift to any Bride who wants a fantastic experience on her wedding day along with beautiful images to remember this once in a lifetime event. Karyn and Joe have our full endorsement!

Karyn and Joe are exceptional at what they do. You can tell they are passionate about photography through the quality of their work. And their attention to detail ensures they capture every important moment. I highly recommend them for any of your important events. Shelly's Designs Florist
