I know, I know. You’re probably thinking, “I don’t have time for this, I’m planning a whole ass wedding!” and I mean- you’re not like totally wrong. But what if it didn’t have to be so stressful? What if it could be exactly what you want- and nothing that you don't?

Come on in!

Sit down, grab some coffee (my fave) cause babe, we’re gonna be here for a while.

that's where I come in!

I know that those are the love stories we’ll be telling for generations to come. And I wanna help tell yours. 

I wanna be so much more than a vendor that you hire for one day and never talk to again. I wanna be your cheerleader, your go-to girl when you’re on the brink of a breakdown, your favorite third wheel for your greatest adventure.

My Name's Kara

I’m a total sucker for the wild, authentic, messy love stories.

SAY HI!

featured in

I grew up in the midwest, went to art school in Savannah, Georgia, spent a few months in the Rockies and a few months in the South of France, but for the past 5 years (and counting!), I’ve been calling the Big Apple home. And thank goodness for that, because we’ve got some very connected airports which make it easy to catch an adventure. When I’m not biking through Queens or testing out the latest vegan dishes downtown, I’m on my way to the airport- heading across the country or across the pond, photographing love that makes my heart race.

Looking for Your Own Adventure?

At the end of the day, I come home to my adorable neighborhood in Queens, which I wouldn’t trade for anywhere else in the world (okay… maybe I would trade it in for Italy). It’s got everything I need, from great bike paths to riverside parks to authentic and diverse cuisine to my favorite rock climbing gym.

A Few of
My Favorites

I met Zach my freshman year of college, when he was studying to be an animator for Disney and I was still undecided. I taught him how to do laundry, he taught me how to dance, and I won him over when I used my entire meal plan allowance to buy 30 mozzarella sticks at 2am. 

Oh yeah    and it’s got this guy!


READ MORE ABOUT MY LIFE IN THE BIG APPLE

I believe in big fun, big adventure, big feelings. Every bad day, every good day- they’re still only 24 hours long, and it’s very cool that we get to decide how to live those 24 hours. It’s the wind blown hair at the top of a mountain after a 4 hour hike. It’s dancing barefoot on the beach with a beer in hand.

I live my life with the mindset that every little moment is fleeting. 

it's everyday magic

It’s why photography is so beautiful to me. Photos are time machines to our best days, reminding us of the way it feels to be on top of the world (whether literally or figuratively)! 

There will be things that you forget about the day that you spent years planning. You might forget that your friend showed up to your wedding barefoot, or that your little brother dyed his hair pink a week before the big day. Photos will remind you, and when they do, they’ll bring back all the feelings of that everyday magic you experienced for a quick 24 hours.

LET'S MAKE MAGIC

Kara made us laugh so much during the shoot and kept up the conversation that whole time we didn’t even notice that our time was up! She was just as excited about our shoot as we were and just in a few days we had our photos! We were so happy with the results and her customer service, that we decided to book her for our wedding!

ryan and kimberly

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. 


dylan and ashley

it felt like I had a best friend behind the camera wrangling myself and my husband and our very large combined families like she’d known us our entire lives.

ashley and james

I fell in love, but didn’t know if you’d be able to travel out to our west coast wedding. My fiance booked you without telling me, and I literally started crying when he told me. I was like, ‘we got Kara

cassandra and william

If you don't book Kara you're doing it wrong. Kara is absolutely incredible--extremely talented, so much fun, very sweet, and super responsive. We had a great first meeting with her, and an even better time on the day of the wed

Here’s how I make it all happen

You want a day that’s all about you, where you can lean into the adventure and forget the rest. Where you can focus on your boo- not on the noise and stress of being pulled in a million different directions. I want that for you too!
