You have made the brave and intentional choice to spend your wedding day in a way that is authentic to your love story. This is no small decision and I just want to take a second to celebrate with you! Elopements and intimate weddings are such a meaningful and valuable way to spend your wedding day and I couldn't be more excited to help you craft a completely unique experience that you will cherish for years to come!
I'm Kara! I am mama to the sweetest twins (not biased or anything), and married to my college sweetheart. Being in nature is where my creative heart comes alive! I love going on a hike, getting my boots a little dirty, maybe losing cell service and making some incredible memories. This is where I am able to deliver my absolute best, which is what y'all deserve!
I would describe my photography style as very laid back and natural. The little in between moments make for the best photos, and I’m not about capturing awkward prom poses and forced smiles. I want the real stuff - the stuff that’ll make you laugh till your cheeks hurt and will make your heart beat faster. I want to photograph the things that make you who you are, and the things that make your love unique. Because there’s only so many angles and poses and pretty locations, and they’ve all been done before - but what makes each photo special is the memories attached to it, and my goal is to make those unique to you!
"This was our first time getting professional pictures taken and we were nervous up front but as soon as we stepped out at our location and met Kara; our nerves calmed and we became even more excited to capture our memories. Kara made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. We felt so natural. She made us feel as if it were only Devin and I standing there, showing our love for each other. I felt like Kara captured Devin and I's personality and love for one another perfectly. Our pictures show our love and who we are together. She was incredibly friendly and kind and made us feel like we walked away with a friend."
“You will not be disappointed! After searching forever to find a photographer I luckily stumbled across Kara’s instagram and instantly fell in love with her work. I told her what we liked to do for fun and she incorporated that into the shoot by giving us a ton of adventurous location options. We also had a tight timeframe and she helped us make it work! My fiance and I drove from Charlotte NC to spend the morning taking engagement photos at Cloudland Canyon State Park. This was our first time taking professional photos and she made us feel so comfortable! By the end of the shoot we felt like we walked away with a new friend. It was hands down one of the best mornings we’ve hat to date! Highly recommend!”
"Right from the start, I could tell that we were going to have a positive experience- but we were blown away! We had not done any professional photos prior to this, so we had no idea what to expect. Kara was exceptional and very professional throughout the entire process, while bringing a warm personality and smile! She answered all of our questions before, during, and after in a timely manner. During the shoot she made us feel so comfortable, that our relationship was really able to shine through in the photos. We honestly had so much fun! When it came to the final product, she delivered everything right on time and we are in love with every single photo. It's great when my only complaint is that I can't decide which photo I like the best! I would 100% recommend her to everyone I know who wants someone to capture a moment of their life on camera!"
The next steps are pretty simple! Once you've had a chance to look over these prices we will set up a time to meet over coffee or video chat so that we can create a custom package that best serves you!
This will also give you the chance to tell me all about your magical day and ask any questions that you may have! I would LOVE to help serve you and craft a unique experience that you will be able to cherish for years to come!
I AM SO STOKED FOR THIS!!!!!
