    Karen and her assistant were amazing ! Not only did they capture the most beautiful photos (and I don't consider myself photogenic at all and I STILL loved the photos) but they kept everything running smoothly for us. We had an extremely large wedding party which could have posed a problem for some photographers, but instead she used it to her advantage and produced the most amazing photos. She even took it a step further by going to the location where we took the photos, before the wedding day at the exact time we would be there to make sure the lighting would be appropriate. Karen went above and beyond and I would recommend her to any future bride and groom!

    Let me start by saying my (now) husband and I hate having our pictures taken. We do not like to be the center of attention. But, we wanted pictures of our wedding. Karen was absolutely the best person for the job. After an exchange of emails Karen invited me to her home to show me her work and discuss options. She is very personable and professional. I explained that we wanted "real shots" of our wedding verses posed and photoshopped, she delivered. She even made taking pictures enjoyable (something I never thought I'd say). She was quick and you could hardly tell she was capturing the beautiful shots during the ceremony and reception. Karen made my wedding day a breeze as she was organized and punctual. Also she works really fast and gets your pictures to you ASAP! I would recommend Karen to any bride to be, she is worth every cent!

    My wife and I could not have been happier with Karen. Karen and her assistant Danielle took wonderful photos. They were organized, professional, and very pleasant. Karen knows how to work with the surroundings and was maticulous with the lighting and our positioning to make sure all the photos came out perfectly. We even received our pictures on a thumb drive less than a week after our wedding! You could not ask for a better photographer, and she is a bargain for what she costs.

    What to say about Karen and her assistant Danielle, truthfully only one word comes to mind....amazing! This did a wonderful job and we could not have found a better wedding photographer. They exceeded our expectations! I can say without a doubt in my mind that Karen will be the photographer we use going forward for family pictures, for baby pictures...whatever she is willing to do!

    Karen was fantastic! She knows her stuff when it comes to weddings and timelines to ensure we still had enough time for pictures and were able
    To Enjoy our night. She had our blog online finished and posted within 48 hours of our wedding and even had the USB drive available well before we were back from our honeymoon: edited and good to go! Awesome experience: you won't be disappointed!

    I absolutely loved working with Karen! From our engagement photos to the end of our wedding, she was easy to work with, professional, and lots of fun. The pictures that we got were amazing! We are having a hard time picking because they are all do good! I was most impressed with her quick turn around time. Less than 2 weeks after our wedding, we had out CD of pictures. I would definitely recommend Karen Geaghan Photography!!!

    Karen takes absolutely beautiful pictures. She has an eye for interesting shots, and a vision for making seemingly mundane spots look gorgeous. Her partners are awesome, as well! Beautiful, beautiful pictures. Not much, "posed," which we loved--she gave us a direction like, "hold hands and walk this way," and turned our walk into some of our favorite pictures. You won't be disappointed, unless she's booked!

    Our wedding would not have been the same without Karen and Deb. They both are amazingly talented and know how to truly capture the special moments of an important day. Thank you both so much for being apart of our day and for helping to make it as special as it was. I hope to have you capture more memories in the future.

    Karen isn’t just good at what she does; she is phenomenal.

    Karen photographed our wedding this September and I couldn’t have asked for a better team. Karen was introduced to our family when she took photos of niece (which came out gorgeous). And it was then that I knew she had to photograph our wedding. I hired her for our engagement photos and wedding photos. She took the time to get to know us, what we like to do as a couple, and about our family.

    Karen bent over backwards for us. Our wedding venue burnt down 3 months before our wedding and we had to change our date and re-plan EVERYTHING. I called Karen the morning after we lost our venue and she was amazing.. Her and her team made our new date work, which I am forever grateful for! Needless to say, her and her team are dedicated to capturing all your special moments and making your day perfect. If you are looking for someone to capture your special day, I promise Karen and her team will get it done for you.

    Karen was wonderful to work with for our engagement pictures and wedding. We felt so at ease from the start - Karen is very organized and responsive. She is great at giving directions without making you feel silly, and had us laughing the entire time. We really had no idea what we wanted in terms of style, but Karen showed us different examples and had plenty of ideas for us to go on. She made sure to get every shot that we wanted (even climbed up into an old hay loft to get a picture of all of our 175 guests!). Karen knew that we didn't want to spend the whole wedding taking pictures, so she made sure to get most of the bridal party and family shots done before the ceremony. We also saw sneak peeks of our pictures the next day, and our blog was posted within a few days. We received a CD with all of our pictures after a week, and we loved every shot! I would highly recommend Karen Geaghan to anyone!

    Karen was our photographer for our engagement pictures and our wedding. I also did a boudoir photo shoot with her as a gift to my husband. She was absolutely wonderful to work with and the pictures came out amazing. We definitely plan to use her for anything in the future as she does maternity and baby photos, as well as family photos. Thank you Karen and Danielle for capturing our special day so wonderfully!

    Karen was an excellent professional photographer. She paid attention to detail in our entire wedding process. She was very flexible and took personal requests on the spot, while orchestrating and ensuring our wedding went according to plan. Karen and her staff displayed professionalism in capturing photographs and was very efficient in getting our photographs to us in a timely manner. She also allowed the photos to be previewed with her blog photos three days after our wedding.

    Karen is a great! She is professional, personable and uses the natural environment to create amazing shots. She is a pro at finding the best light and creating it when necessary. She combines classic photography with our specific requests and fun candid shots. She has a lot of experience in Western MA and was extremely reasonably priced. Karen and Danielle shot our wedding and the photos were beautiful, a blog of highlights was posted within a few days and the full disc of photos delivered in a week! Our guests commented they didn't notice them during the reception but you would never know from the pictures. We felt very taken care of and like they cared about getting the best shots while fulfilling our requests. They both took their job seriously so we knew we were in good hands.

    Karen and her second photographer Danielle did an awesome job covering our wedding. They really made the pictures reflect the uniqueness of our venue, and to top it off they even got my husband to smile for pictures (which he almost never does!) Also Karen and Danielle were able to stay for an additional hour when things didn't quite go as planned. Best thing is Karen had a really quick turn around for pictures...I got them back within a week!

    Karen was very easy to work with and flexible with meeting us & figuring out what we wanted with our pictures. We had proofs of our photos within a month of our wedding & she presented them in a personalized box with one pic of just us. We only wish the photos were on an USB drive rather than a disc & I would have liked a bit more direction during my photos. Both issues were very small & we already recommended her to two other brides.

    Beautiful pictures, but many missing moments left us disappointed

    I hate to leave only 3 stars because the photos Karen took of our wedding day were genuinely beautiful, but unfortunately we were left feeling disappointed with our experience as a whole. There were many candid moments that are missing from our pictures, both from the ceremony and the reception, despite her having a second shooter. Communication before the wedding wasn’t what we would have hoped. I felt like I was bothering her that my messages were skimmed and not fully responded to. I brushed it off as her being busy with other shoots and other clients, but I probably should have stood up about it then. There were a lot of things we had to re-go over with her that we had previously discussed when we had our final meeting. The day of the wedding, our list of what groups we wanted for the formal family portraits wasn’t followed, resulting in time being wasted on pictures that we did not want or need and I had to remind her of some of the groupings that she missed and almost didn’t take.

    Karen has a very quick turn around time (her editing style is minimal, which was something we liked) and the pictures we got were gorgeous, but for my husband and I that doesn’t make up for the missing moments.

    All in all, we love the pictures we got and will cherish them always, but I wish we had gone with someone else.

    Ariel,
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts regarding my wedding services. My team and I strive to make every experience memorable and positive in every way. We are truly sorry it was not an overall happy experience for you. It saddens me that you feel the way you do and that we could not make you happy. I am grateful however that you were pleased and you found your images beautiful. Danielle and I did as well. I do not believe the disappointment you feel could have been rectified by any change in my actions, for that I am truly sorry as well.
    A “candid” is an unposed moment in time. We delivered over 1100 images of which 40% covered the reception and approximately 20% the ceremony. If we missed a candid moment, something you viewed that we did not, unfortunately we have no control over that.
    You are absolutely correct in stating that I go over things time and time again. I do this intentionally in case any details are missing or have changed from the time of booking until the wedding. If this seems redundant, my apologies.
    Communication throughout the year was timely except for one email a year before the wedding for which I acknowledged but asked to respond at a later date. It was a lengthy email with a three page list of group shot images and names of family members and friends. I needed a good amount of time to review this information and process it but felt that it could temporarily wait as we had a year before the wedding. You responded in kind that the email was not urgent. If this left you feeling brushed off, it was certainly not my intention and I am sorry.
    You are correct as well in stating there was an error with group pictures. The DJ inadvertently called an incorrect group from the list you had given us. It as well was not intentional and you then corrected us and we then got the proper group. I don’t believe we missed any others from the spreadsheet you had supplied.
    Again, I am saddened that you are walking away from this experience unsatisfied but am grateful you thought your wedding images were “genuinely beautiful”. I wish you and Glen every happiness as you begin your married life and an abundance of joy and love in the years to come.
    Karen
