Introduction: Hey, I'm Kari Wilde, a wedding & elopement photographer based in Oregon but I'm lucky to enough to travel all over the country shooting gorgeous weddings. Ok, let’s talk style and aesthetic: As you can probably tell my images, I tend to gravitate more towards the dark and moody side of things. I want all my images to evoke feeling, beauty and rawness. My favorite images are ones I captured during the “in between moments”, when nobody thought they were being photographed. When I shoot, I imagine the images as stills from piece of beautiful cinema. Cinema is where I find most of my inspiration for photography. Which def. makes me the most annoying person to watch a movie with because I am way more interested in how the scene is lit vs. the actual plot! I am drawn to darkness, shadow, light & emotion. Capturing the romance of the moment and the connection between people are what I live for. A lot of my clients ( prob 85%) comment on how they are "not good at taking pictures". Don't worry, I'll help you every step of the way from "posing" ( I don't like that word), to wardrobe, location, and everything in between. More images from my portfolio can be found on my website ( just google my name). You can also shoot over a text directly on my site for a quicker response time.

She made it so easy and fun, I’m always awkward when it comes to photos but it felt so natural like I was hanging out with a friend. Very friendly and easy to make conversation with while taking photos.

Kari was AMAZING to work with. She immediately made us feel comfortable, knew her way around all the sites we decided on for our engagement shoot, was mindful of the things we wanted captured, and was frankly one of the sweetest people we've ever met. And on top of it all, the pictures she captured were completely gorgeous and exactly what we wanted. I couldn't recommend Kari enough!

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!!!!

FAQs

  • 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 .
