Introduction: Why hello there! My name is Kari Wilde and I'm an adventure wedding, elopement and family photographer & videographer serving the entire Pacific Northwest. My thing in life is capturing love stories in the wild. I photograph ( and create video) of wild-hearted lovers, weddings, & families. My style: I consider myself and "unposed" photographer, meaning I won't put you into poses and tell you to freeze. Instead I give you lots of open ended prompts and tell them to make them yours. My goal is capture raw and authentic emotion. What kind of people hire me? I am hired mainly by THREE types of people. Read on friend! 1) Lovers who are wild and adventurous. No matter if you are having a traditional wedding or eloping on a volcano, couples hire me because they want their wedding photos to be adventurous, fun and dripping with untamed romance. 2) The super adventurous who want their pictures on top of a mountain, in a cave or on a hidden beach. 35% of my clients are visitors to Oregon and want to capture some epic adventure travel photographs. 3) Families with little kids who can't sit still and have a LOT OF ENERGY! Little kids and I vibe hard (#momof3) and I haven't ever met a little kid I didn't get along with. Little kids and I just get each other ( read my reviews if you don't believe me!) I have three little kids myself and I know what it takes to get amazing photos of little ones, especially if they are oozing with energy.

Wedding and Event Photography

Kari was wonderful. She was on time, super helpful and very friendly and easy to work with! She had a great style of taking pictures that brings out candid photos, and made me and my fiancee very comfortable. She went over and above to help us through the wedding photoshoot on multiple hikes through Silver Falls state park. She was also great with giving us the finished photos in a short time. Loved the photos and the experience, would recommend her 100%.

Kari just did our family photos for my husband, myself, and our 10 month old daughter and they turned out AMAZING! We have never had family photos done before this and I could not be more happy with choosing Kari Wilde Photography to do them! She made the experience fun and easy(and nothing is every easy with an infant). She got us the photos in amazing time and all the photos blew away my expectations. I love how she was able to captured the happiness in our family. Photo quality is great, she was professional but made it a fun experience, and we will be coming back to her for next years family photos! Thank you Kari!!!!

Kari has taken both family and wedding photos for us. She made the family photos fun for the kids and captured it beautifully. The wedding photos and video are gorgeous. I highly recommend Kari.

Portrait Photography

Kari is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. Everyone was so comfortable around her and in front of the camera. Kari was extremely patient with our girls and even let them help come up with ideas for poses and activities. It was a beautiful session and the entire family had so much fun! We have so many favorites from this session it has been a struggle to choose what to print. THANK YOU KARI!

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

    My rates are flat fees, I don't require that you also print your photos through me. I will provide you with a print release and you can print any of the photos you'd like or none at all!

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I fell in love with photography after my 2nd son was born. I was gifted a camera shortly before he was born and couldn't stop taking photos. What started as a fun hobby bloomed into a full blown passion. That passion led me to start photographing for brands and now I've ventured into family and couples!

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I've worked with lots of different families over the past 5 years and have shot babies, families, large groups, and family events. I've also done a lot of brand lifestyle photography for large outdoor brands and smaller indie brands .
