Introduction: Hi! My name is Kari Bjorn and I photograph weddings and other happy gatherings. Please see my website & social media links for my portfolio, wedding packages, and booking information. I studied photography in New York City at Parsons School of Design and have been shooting weddings, portraits, editorials, and doing commercial work since 2012. I have won a few awards, American Photography 35 & 37 in 2019 and 2021 and Hasselblad Masters finalist in 2018. My work has been exhibited and published on both sides of the Atlantic, at The Aperture Foundation in NYC, the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg in Russia, and Fotografiska in Stockholm, Sweden for example. American Photography, NPR, and Dazed have also published my pictures and long-form documentary projects. Please see my website and social media links for portfolios, contact, and booking information. I am currently offering discounts on wedding photography on unbooked 2021 dates. Please reach out through my website or Instagram for more information.

Wedding and Event Photography

Dee and I absolutely loved Kari and felt he was wonderful part of our wedding team. His professional yet soft approach to capturing the essence of our wedding day was simply amazing. He is a complete professional, polite and gentle in nature and fun to have around the crowd. Words cannot express our satisfaction, pleasure and the excitement we experienced having Kari capture our day. He put his heart into our wedding and added to it by his presence. We had are so glad we chose Kari and will choose him for all future photographic needs. He is simply the best to work with. Randy and Dee.

Kaji took my graduations photos and they were GREAT!! There were a few times I had to reschedule and he was very patient and worked with me with me on the dates and times. He communicated well and answered any questions I had. He made the process very easy and the photoshoot was great! I would definitely recommend getting your photos done by Kaji

Engagement Photography

Working with Kari has been a delight from start to finish. We got engaged in Oct 2020 and wanted to take pictures ASAP in order to capture the beautiful foliage of Upstate NY as well as our newly engaged bliss. We contacted Kari within a week of our engagement and had a date, time and place set to have a photo shoot within days! We are new to the area and he suggested the location and time of day in order to make the best of the surroundings and the pictures were STUNNING! With the engagement package we received 27 photos and 3 gifs for use on social media and for printing. We also got the photos 48 hours after the shoot! Kari is professional, punctual and responds within hours to our messages. He is easy to get along with and made us comfortable throughout the whole experience. He used his expertise and ideas to frame our shoot and was receptive to our ideas and vision. The result was amazing art that we will cherish for a lifetime and share with our family and friends! His rate was also extremely affordable for the quality of photos we received. If you need a photographer for anything, message Kari!

Thank you so much, Abigail! It was a pleasure to work with you and Jared, the combination of the loving sparks between you two, the location and the light we managed to get, made this a truly remarkable session for me! Thank you again and all the best to you and Jared!
