Introduction: Hey y'all! I'm Kara and I'm an adventurer, traveler, and oh, of course- a wedding and portrait photographer! I believe in dance parties, extra guac, confetti, and big celebrations for all of life's big moments! I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design, and even though I got my first camera on my 6th birthday, it wasn't until 2018 that I decided to make this business official! Since then, I have photographed hundreds of weddings in dozens of states and countries! I travel all over the world for my photography, meeting the coolest most rad couples around. So. Ready for an adventure?

Kara was amazing! Kara photographed our engagement as well as our wedding, and made both occasions run so smooth and a stress free. She worked with me and helped me with ideas and planning for the surprise engagement shoot which went perfectly. Not only was it amazing because we got engaged, but she made the entire experience super fun as well. She has a very professional, but relaxed and enjoyable composure to how she manages a photo shoot. She is also a magician with a camera, and turns any backdrop or location into a beautiful and unique photo.Kara was such a great part of our destination wedding as well. Not only did she keep us calm and stress free in another country, but she did tons of research to find the most beautiful locations possible as well. Just like our engagement, she kept us very calm and stress free while allowing us to have so much fun on this special and jam packed day. She also organized a beautiful and very unique first look that my wife and I agree to be our favorite part of our day. I would recommend Kara to any and everyone that is looking for not only amazing photos but an amazing experience as well.

After booking Kara for our engagement shoot, there was no one else we could imagine hiring as our wedding photographer. Kara is hilarious, clever, and enthusiastic about what she does. She is such a natural leader, and she made taking photos so much fun with her casual directions and jokes <3 Getting our photos back made us cry with gratitude - thank you, Kara, for being the behind-the-scenes piece to the best days of our lives. We’ll be customers for life :,)

I've worked with Kara once so far, for my engagement photoshoot, and all I can say is I am super excited to work with her again for my wedding!I had never had my picture taken professionally when I began my search for a wedding photographer and a few things were important to me to look for:- A beautiful editing style I love- A professional who is friendly, engaging and whose personality clicked with mine- Inclusive, LGBTQA+ friendly- Creative and inspired with their work- Within my price rangeI got ALL of this and more with Kara! We spoke about what I wanted ahead of time so everyone was prepared for the session. The session itself was great fun and Kara made my fiance and I feel at ease in front of her camera (A HUGE feat I may add). I can't wait to receive my photos and spam everyone I know with their beauty.

I booked Kara for a boudoir shoot for January 2020. You'd think this would be a terrifying experience, but you couldn't be more wrong. Kara made me feel completely comfortable and super confident. I couldn't believe how fast the time went by! She completely understands the use of light, space, and wardrobe, and created absolute art out of pieces I couldn't quite put together. Kara is a skilled photographer, confident in suggesting posing, eager to try new things, and is the best cheerleader I could have asked for. I am completely thrilled with my photos, and they make me feel so beautiful. If you've never been cheered on in your underwear by Kara, I highly recommend it.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing ranges based on project type and time coverage. Portrait packages start at $425, and weddings start at $3700. All of my packages are carefully crafted based off my most highly requested items. I have more pricing details listed on my website, but be sure to reach out about a custom quote!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Well first, I like to say heyyyyy and hear all about what y'all are planning. From there, we'll work together to decide what's most important to you and select a package based on your specific needs. When you're ready to book, I require a 30% non-refundable deposit and a signed contract. Once those two things are in order, we're all set! We'll talk details as needed, I'll be there for you before, during, and after the photo shoot, and then you'll receive your fully edited, hi-res images within 2-6 weeks, delivered in an online gallery.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a full 4-year Bachelor of Fine Art degree in Photography from the Savannah College of Art Design! Since graduation, I've taken several courses to further my education and continue learning as much as possible.
