About Us

Hey! You look like somebody that believes that a happy, love-filled marriage is so much more than a beautiful wedding day... although I'll take any excuse to eat cake. My name is Kara, and I'm a wedding and elopement photographer based in New York City (with a passport that goes everywhere).

I believe that photography is more than a vendor to check off your list. I absolutely love connecting with couples on a personal level and getting to know each other throughout the entire planning process. I want to hear all about how you and your fiance met, your dating years, how they proposed, and every single detail for your big day! I'll be there for you from before your wedding even begins, all the way through you busting a move out on the dance floor. So for all those butterfilies that you think can't possibly be captured by a camera- I can do it.

My shooting style is classic + candid, centered on emotions. I'm passionate about retelling couple’s love stories through my detailed images. I loves the intimate moments, big laughs, and everything in between. I will capture each fleeting look, momentary emotion, and real interaction- naturally, as they occur. You can expect to end up with hundreds of laughing, happiness-ridden, emotion-filled photos, as well as plenty of traditional photos showcasing the beauty of your wedding day.

There is so much joy and excitement in store for you- I can't wait to celebrate along with you! Pop over to my website to find more examples of my work, read blogs filled with photos, and reach out directly through my contact form!

For couples looking for a little extra coverage, Kara does provide additional hours and third shooter options.

  • We got lucky and won a mini session with Kara! She was super flexible on scheduling the date, sent a very professional breakdown of our mini session , and helped us come up with a fun theme for the shoot! We ended up doing a pizza and beer picnic in the park. The shoot was super fun and natural. She has a great eye for composition and is great at suggesting poses that feel natural and look great in photos. Kara made us laugh so much during the shoot and kept up the conversation that whole time we didn’t even notice that our time was up! She was just as excited about our shoot as we were and just in few days we had our photos! We were so happy with the results and her customer service, that we decided to book her for our wedding!
