Karen and her husband were a perfect fit for our wedding. Karen had great picture ideas and also listened to what my ideas were and made them happen. Very happy with her work and the memories she captured. I didn’t have to wait weeks for our photos, she had them to us as quickly as possible. I would highly recommend this enjoyable wife and husband team. They are awesome! More...

Karen and her husband were great, they work together as a team really well. I am a hobby photographer and in turn I am the one behind the camera...my comfortable zone. When she started taking photos of me I was pretty uncomfortable but she told me to pretend she’s not there and to relax... I started to relax more and not be so uncomfortable. Karen made our day a very pleasant and relaxing day and got some beautiful pictures of my family, friends, husband and myself. Thank you, Karen More...

Karen and her husband were so helpful in our decisions from the clothes we wore to the location of the shoot. They took their time with us and were very patient with our 4 year old. We could tell they really cared about making our family pictures something special we would treasure a lifetime! Thanks guys! More...

We booked Karen at the last minute while traveling at Purgatory. She responded quickly to my requests and was very flexible. It rained the whole day before our shoot, but luckily just as we were ready for photos, it cleared up. Karen and her husband were patient with our 2 kids and we felt comfortable right away. Thanks for the great family photos! More...

My husband and I hired Karen for our wedding. It was a small wedding with 25 guests and the ceremony and dinner were both outside. Karen did an excellent job and her husband is a great assistant! I chose Karen not only for her skills and professionalism as a photographer but she was also willing to work with a budget of any size within reason. She was also open to custom packages with digital files and/or custom prints. We had all of our edited photos within 5 weeks after our wedding and she sent over a few previews of photos as soon as the day after the wedding. Her flexibility and personable disposition make her the perfect choice! More...

Q&A

There are 3 items that professional photographers know how to do very well: Work with lighting, camera exposure, and posing. It's something we have studied, learned, and practiced for over a decade.

For weddings we like to get to know our clients. We want to know how they met, how long they've been together, when they got engaged, and what they like to do in their spare time. Then we find out where they're getting married, how many guests they're expecting, and all of the other details. We send them a Wedding Information Form so we get all the important information that we need to do our job.

For family portraits and boudoir, we also like to get to know our clients and again send an Information Form. We go over locations for the portraits, and clothing.

For corporate events, we need information such as where the event is taking place, what particular shots they want, and what they will be doing with those images.

We love to help people and provide them with family heirlooms that will be passed down through generations. It makes us really happy when people laugh and smile, and let us know that they are over the top happy with their images.

My dad was a photographer and I loved going into his dark room to watch him make prints. I've had a camera in my hands for as long as I can remember and taking photographs was something that made me very happy. I love meeting new people and making friends with my clients. Then my husband joined me as a second shooter at weddings, and he holds the umbrella with lights that make our images beautiful.

We're very experienced with every detail of weddings and family portraits. Making clients happy is our main objective.
