Introduction: Hi! I am Kari Bjorn and I capture weddings, portraits, and families. Please see my website for the fastest and most accurate quotes with my booking form. 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.

Kari worked with my daughters on headshots for an upcoming competition. He worked with both of them as individuals and was able to get each of their own unique personalities to shine in the photos (which were fantastic).

Correspondence with Kari was quick, and it was easy to schedule a time to shoot. Kari selected 2 awesome sites to shoot, and he put me at ease right away. He gave good direction and solicited my input as well. I'm really pleased with the way the photos turned out, and the natural lighting of the locations was awesome. I'd highly recommend Kari to anyone looking for a photographer.

Details: Solo portrait • Traditional / classic (looking directly at the camera) • Artistic (focus on composition, lighting) • High fashion (highlights style) • Photo studio • Digital or online download • At the pro’s location

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
