    One of the best!

    Karen is a sweet and down to earth person who did an absolute incredible job capturing our special moments on our wedding day. My husband and I were very impressed by both the quality and quantity of photos in our gallery! If you’re looking for high quality photos at an affordable price look no further! She will not disappoint!

    Karen was the BEST wedding photographer. She was extremely communicative before the event and was so much fun to work with the day-of! Even with an impending thunderstorm, she squeezed in so many fantastic shots! We couldn’t be happier with her work and how incredibly sweet and caring she was! Highly recommended!

    It was my pleasure! From our first meeting over coffee, that cold and drizzly but FUN engagement session on the beach, the communication in planning, and your big day! That dark storm moving in and having to rush everything actually made in more FUN and definitely memorable!!! I adore you two! Thank you for choosing me to capture your wedding!!

    Best photographer in CT

    There is literally no better photographer than Karen. She is so unbelievably talented, and really cares about her clients. She gets to know you, what makes you happy, what doesn’t, and does everything in her power to make sure your day is perfect. She is not only an incredibly photographer, she is also a genuinely kind person. I am so happy we chose her for our wedding, and so happy I got to know her! Her photos are incredible, she captures the most magical moments so easily. I just can’t say enough positive things about her.

    Very professional

    Karen joy did an outstanding job for my wife and I on our wedding day ! Her services were well worth every penny. Karen worked with alot of effort to accommodate every request my wife and I had . For Karen to be able to work a crowd involving our crazy fun filled families and to be able to capture every great moment was amazing . As a groom I'm very happy that one day we will be able to look at memories and share these memories with our children one day when we have children. Karen even stayed almost an hour late just to make sure my brothers and I got one last photo captured with us holding a picture of my father whoom passed away and could only be with us I. Spirit .Karen made sure my brothers and I took a photo with his framed picture in front of his memorial we set up in the front row of the steering area . This meant the world to me that she went above and beyond .....we couldn't have hired anyone better my wife is also very happy ... We loved the book she made us as well when we received it and looked at it the book brought us back to the wonderfully once in a life time day we had ....thank u Karen .five stars to you and I highly recommend Karen to anyone who wants to have an organised and professional photo shoot for your wedding

    Professional, talented and attentive Photographer

    Karen went above and beyond to capture our engagement and wedding day. She has an eye for using the light and the natural landscape around her. Karen was attentive, easy to work with open to all of our ideas. I highly recommend her if you want photos that capture the feeling of the day. We joke that she was "everywhere the action was", and we don't know how she did it. We were so happy she was our photographer!

    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.
