    This was one of the best experiences of my life. She made my engagement come to life! Please book her as soon as possible. I will hire her for the wedding as well!

    Wedding Photographer

    Where to start with how great Cassia was… she was our wedding and engagement photographer, and we really couldn’t have been happier.

    Cassia found us through Thumbtack, and we were immediately drawn to her work. She has such a great style and eye for shots! After talking with her over the phone, we felt very comfortable with her and knew she was the photographer for us.

    Neither of us is typically big on taking photos of ourselves, so we initially weren’t planning on an engagement session. After Cassia mentioned that it would be a good opportunity to meet each other and get a feel for our vibe and get more comfortable around each other, we agreed and did a laid back shoot near our house. What a great recommendation! We felt so relaxed around her and could really be ourselves. That combined with her talent made for some pictures that we really love, and so does our family. It also made us much more comfortable going into the wedding, as we knew that was one thing we wouldn’t have to worry about.

    Cassia was always so responsive any time we had a question or a change to the schedule of the day, and she was so accommodating and helpful with everything. On the day of the wedding, she and her assistant were great. They split up between the girls and guys while we were getting ready, then both took shots throughout the first look, ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. One thing that we loved was that she didn’t have an hourly limit, so we weren’t constantly checking the time. Again they were both great at making us feel comfortable, while also giving good direction to get some great pictures. Another thing we loved was that they were able to take some great pictures of the ceremony without inserting themselves into it.

    We received the full photo gallery online not long after the wedding, and all of the photos came out more beautifully than we could have hoped. We also love having full rights to both small file size and full high definition photos.

    Cassia is an amazingly talented photographer and we so appreciated her unique and creative approach. We are so grateful to her for capturing all the truly beautiful moments during the day that we would not have seen otherwise. We could not recommend her highly enough. Thank you again for everything Cassia!

    Cassia and her team did both our engagement photos and wedding photos for our wedding on 3-24-18. From start to finish, it was a wonderful experience. Cassia's professionalism, caring, and dedication to detail and emotion really stood out in our photos. We are in love with our entire portfolio, but the people behind the camera lens are just as amazing. Suzy and David, the members of her team who shot our wedding, were an absolute pleasure to work with. Many of the women in my bridal party (who are married and/or have been in many weddings) commented on how great the photographers were, and my husband and I couldn't agree more. We are beyond pleased with our experience, and highly recommend Cassia and her team. Thank you for making our big day extra special!

    My husband and I loved having Cassia and Tommy as our wedding photographers! We really felt cared for as we prepared for the big day and during the day. They both had a calming presence day of and helped us to relax while being photographed. The pictures also turned out amazing! We thought they did a wonderful job capturing our wedding and would definitely hire them again.

    Incredible. Fabulous. Amazing. All the awesome words - that's Cassia! It describes her work as a photographer, her professional way of taking care of business, and it describes her as a person. Cassia and Tommy were a joy to work with and I seriously feel blessed to have found them and honored that they were the photographers at our wedding. I would and WILL hire them again in a heartbeat if I ever need photographers for any other occasion. They are that special. And the photos!! I could go on and on...

    I truly could not have been happier with Tommy and Cassia! They were so accommodating with our last-minute requests and many changes, and they took the most beautiful photos. Their quality of work is so incredible. They are not only professional but personable, and they make an effort to get to know the people they are working with. I can't imagine having anyone else shoot our wedding.

    Cassia was wonderful. She made both me and my husband feel comfortable in front of the camera and was able to capture every detail and moment of our wedding. The photos turned out gorgeous, and everyone is very pleased! I also really like the software Cassia used to share our photos with us, because it allows her to organize the photos into categories and is really easy to share with friends and family.

I do not always have the pleasure of capturing a couple unite in such blissful fashion, with huge adoration for one another, and real, sweet, and tender affection for each other and each other's families. Thank you for having us be a part of your precious day!

    Jon and I are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Cassia for our September 2017 wedding. We first hired Cassia to only shoot our engagement photos since we were getting married cross-country. However, during and after the engagement shoot, Jon and I connected with Cassia and her husband, Tommy, on a completely different level. We quickly realized that we wouldn’t be able to find someone with the amazing talent and energy that Cassia possessed. So, we decided to hire her for our big day, in which she traveled 2,500 miles just to shoot our wedding!!
    Cassia’s responsiveness, attention to detail, passion, and most of all, her talent is what truly makes Lux Aeterna Photography incredible! Throughout the whole day, Cassia guided and directed the wedding party to capture the best moments. Cassia puts her whole heart into everything she does, which truly shows in her work and photos. Hiring Lux Aeterna was the best decision I made and I highly recommend their services to any bride or individual! Not only did I receive amazing photos to remind me of the best day of my life, but I also found a true friend who I will cherish forever.

    Cassia was a joy to work with—professional, personable, warm, and a true artist. She made us feel completely comfortable on our wedding day and seemed to be everywhere at once capturing pictures of key moments. Working with Cassia was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding! Her work captured the true spirit of our wedding—the happiness, sacredness, and playfulness that permeated the day. I can't imagine a more talented or kind hearted wedding photographer. Thank you, Cassia!!!

    Business side: she was amazing and very professional. Her level of communication kept us not only informed, but also empowered us to remain relaxed through the entire process. Personal Side: we now have a great friend who is a Photographer. This alone made it easy for us to be comfortable during our pictures and while taking instructions on how we needed to pose or how we needed to 'not pose'. (LOL) We were very lucky to have options by using this site. But overall we got a friend out of it.

    Cassia is so very good at what she does! She made everyone feel at ease, captured all our special moments and gave VERY good directions. A shy groom? Not a problem at al! In fact, the portait photos she took of the groom are the best photos I have ever seen of him. What made it even more personal and special was that she even sent me some sneak peek highlights that very night of the wedding so those were the VERY FIRST photos my groom and I saw of the wedding. How amazing is that! Everyone at our wedding loved her and said that they would highly recommend her to others who needed someone to capture unforgettable moments. Thank you Cassia XOXO

    In short, if you’re looking for someone to take pictures of your event, Cassia can do that. However, if you are looking for someone to completely encapsulate the essence of the day, the emotions of your family and friends, and that look of absolute adoration between you and your future spouse; then Cassia is definitely the photographer for you.
    And that is just speaking of her photography. No, not just photography, but the art she captures from your magical day.
    Since before I had even met her, she was and is the easiest person to work with. From the first email to the most recent, every interaction has made me feel like she is excited to talk to me and work with us. She answered every email and text in a timely manner. She made the process so easy while trying to figure out our wants and needs, and what my family wanted on top of that. My family only has the most wonderful things to say about Cassia.
    Cassia was incredibly organized all the way up to and including the wedding, a fact which is amazing in its own. When you’re about two weeks away, and everything is going haywire, her confident and easy going attitude and prepared schedule is such a relief.
    On the day of the event, Cassia is a ninja with a camera. You’ll ask yourself, when did she even take this? I think one of my favorite moments of the night was watching her gracefully set down her ice cream then come running across the venue and jumping over shrubs just to capture a one-time moment.
    I will never regret meeting Cassia. And we honestly hope one day to have another opportunity to work with her.
    Thank you so much Cassia for being there for us and becoming a new friend.

It was a dream :) You created an incredible day, and I LOVED capturing it for you - just the way that you dreamed it should be :) You are a kind and gracious friend, Thank you Cassia

    Cassia is AMAZING! So far we've had our engagement session and because of how those photos turned out I can't wait to see how she captures our big day! I know that the pictures are going to turn out better than we could ever dream because that's what our engagement photos are! Cassia made the whole experience so comfortable and knew how to bring out the best in both of us. She was professional and willing to roll with whatever we wanted and handle our little wardrobe snafu like a champ! So happy we decided on Cassia with Lux Aeterna! Can it be July already?

    My husband and I were married almost two months ago, and we still can't help but share with each other again and again that Cassia her team were the best wedding-related decision that we made! Her photos are absolutely stunning. Not only are they artistically crafted, but they do an impressive job of capturing the emotions and essence of the moment. This was true for both our engagement shoot and the wedding itself. We decided against having a videographer, and looking at Cassia's photos confirmed the fact that we absolutely didn't need one; the photos are filled with life and feeling.

    Not only is her work gorgeous, but Cassia is a beautiful person that added so much to the experience of our wedding. Having her there as part of the day felt as if we had another close friend around. She went above and beyond to make us and our families feel comfortable, and we could not have asked for more.

    Thank you, Cassia and Elizabeth, for everything! To anyone who is thinking about hiring a photographer for your event—grab her!!

    Cassia exceeded my expectations. While searching for a photographer, I was overwhelmed by all the possible vendors. Some were disappointing due to their lack of flexibility, while others took so long to respond. Cassia stood above the rest. She reached out to me right away even when I left the country to visit my grandparents. When I returned, I received a voicemail from her. She sounded so sincere and open that I gave her a call back. She worked with our budget and made the process of filling in paperwork pretty painless. I also felt comfortable speaking with her. I got the sense that she could turn my vision for the wedding into a reality.

    Although I live in SF, she worked with our schedules and made sure we have all the information we needed and vice versa. She is a natural at directing shots and is very open to suggestions. It is easy to see she is passionate about photography and working with people. Her second shooter, Elizabeth Froh is great as well. She captured amazing photos alongside Cassia during our engagement shoot. Cassia delivered great service for our Engagement Session and on our Wedding Day. We look forward to seeing our wedding photos! I know it will be spectacular! If you need a photographer, look no further. Lux Aeterna Photography by Cassia Karin will impress you!

    Having Cassia photograph our wedding day was the best choice we made, outside of choosing each other! She captured our love perfectly. The photos are stunning, and she made us feel beautiful too.

    As an 81 year old grandmother of a bride who recently had her engagement and wedding photos taken by Cassia Karin, I can say without question that this photographer is the finest, friendliest, most innovative and artistic individual who epitomizes professionalism with heart and warmth for the people she memorializes with her work. Her engagement pictures of my granddaughter, Marcy, and her fiance, Dustin, were taken in lovely outdoor settings and were the most natural, "unposed", and beautiful photographs that one could possibly imagine. Subsequent to that were the wedding photos which, from beginning in the "getting ready for the ceremony" to the wedding itself, posed photos after the wedding and the casual photos at the reception were, quite simply, outstanding. Cassia was unobtrusive, calming and so pleasant as she moved around the room capturing the day in its entirety. I have now just seen the photo gallery she presented to the couple and it so clearly reflects the joy and love shared by the couple and of all those who attended the events, even to my catching the bridal bouquet, which was worth a laugh. I cannot recommend her highly enough. I have seen many wedding albums and these were absolutely the best of all. You will appreciate her sensitivity, her personal involvement in your day, and her desire to capture your special day in a most meaningful way.

    My Dear Friend, I often make new and lasting friends at the events I am invited to capture, but you have been the most surprising AND most delightful person I have had the pleasure of befriending yet. Marcy and Dustin are incredibly blessed to have you as their Grandmother, and I am pleased to know that they know it! You just glowed at their wedding, and your laughter, involvement, and cheer made the night what it was. You have a contagious personality, and an endearing heart. Thank you for your words! They are thoughtful and extremely kind. I cannot wait to see you again!

    I was the minister for this service. The bride a dear friend of mine. Cassia was incredibly professional, she captured the special moments, and she was unobtrusive. I've seen photographers become photo-zillas. Not Cassia. She was a joy to work with. I give her my highest recommendation.

    Jeff! Thank you! Let me tell you, you have a wonderfully dear set of friends. You did an exceptional job at the ceremony. I particularly like how you cued the sun to peak out and glow on Ronda & Sam instantly after announcing their marital union -- well done! Great for photos! Haha! Thanks again,
