Karen did a beautiful job capturing our wedding! Engagement photos were included in the package we chose. It was nice to use the engagement session as a way for my husband and I to get to know Karen. She was very warm, flexible, and creative during our engagement session. My husband and I felt very comfortable with her and our engagement photos captured our personalities with poses that are very natural. We wanted our engagement photos to have a natural look which Karen has an eye for and the warm personality to make everyone feel comfortable. When we saw our engagement photos we were in love and knew that our wedding photos would be amazing. We met with Karen at our wedding venue a month prior to our wedding day. During that meeting we were able to scope out areas with beautiful backgrounds for portraits and go over the rough schedule of our day. Karen was very flexible and offered some tips and advice for a smooth day. On the day of our wedding Karen was more than accommodating and patient as she worked with our families and friends to capture special moments and family portraits. After family portraits my husband and I stayed back to capture some more "romantic" photos. Again all the poses look natural, exactly what my husband and I were looking for. We are in love with Karen's work and can't wait to use her in the future for maternity and family portraits with nature as the background when the time comes! We would definitely recommend Karen to capture your special day, you will fall in love with her as well!

From the second we met Karen, we instantly clicked. She captured our vision within minutes and we knew we’d found the perfect photographer. She’s super easy to talk to, so we felt comfortable with her from the start. We had done an engagement shoot with her which was so much fun, we couldn’t wait to see our photos! We knew she had captured some truly great moments of love and laughter. In the months coming up to our wedding day, Karen was in contact with us every step of the way. Karen joined us at our rehearsal the day before our wedding and scoped out every spot for photos, where the sun would be hitting at what time, and the convenience of spots for family who wanted to attend cocktail hour. Karen snapped the most beautiful photos of our wedding day. Our wedding party wanted to attend cocktail hour so Karen and I worked on a “shot list” so we could get everyone quickly over to cocktail hour while my husband and I took our newlywed photos! We can’t say enough great things about her. Her work is phenomenal, her personality is wonderful and her presence is super calming! We will definitely be her clients in the future as our family grows over the years :)

Karen is super professional and commited to her craft. We had a great time shooting our engagement photos with her. She was knowledgeable of our outdoor location and kept the shoot flowing with great ideas for poses that felt natural and looked great on film. We reccomend her to anyone looking for quality photos , and we hope to work with her again in the future!

Karen was phenomenal! She listened to exactly what we wanted, and to what we didn't want. We decided a few weeks before the wedding to try to take as many pictures as possible before the ceremony so we had more time with our guests during cocktail hour. She was more than accommodating coming 30 minutes earlier than originally agreed upon. We didn't want a lot of posed pictures, opting for more of the candid shots. Karen came up with some great ideas for the posed pictures we did take and gave us a ton of candid shots, just like we asked for. She was also very accommodating when our guests asked her to take specific pictures during the reception. Everyone raved about the finished results. She was very easy to work with during the whole process and very responsive with any questions or suggestions. I would highly recommend Karen to capture any and all special moments in your lives!

Karen did an awesome job capturing the day and helping us to recall all the best moments of the day. She helped to capture the moments we missed, and show the love we have for each other, the love we have for our family and friends and the love they have for us. Karen provided copies of all the pictures online and via a CD which allowed us to download, print, post and edit whatever we wanted.
