Be present & in the moment knowing you have friends on your wedding day who make you feel comfortable in front of the camera.
They’re what creates stronger memories of your lifelong commitment, what you proudly display for your family & friends, & signify as the standard of marriage for your future kiddos.
Your wedding photographs are so much more than just pretty pictures to post on Instagram a couple of times afterward.
Hiring just any aesthetically appealing wedding photographer isn't going to bypass the awkward photos you see yourself in...
And they certainly aren't the vivid and stunning images that tell your love story through each detail & moment that looks like the REAL you.
But having pretty pictures doesn't really matter if you associate those once-in-a-lifetime moments with feelings of awkwardness.
We are timeless and purpose-driven wedding photographers for the joyfully romantic couples so you can be at ease, completely present & yourself in front of the camera.
Everywhere we looked, we saw photographers caring more about their craft and “perfect photo” without caring for the couples themselves they were photographing.
And in hearing these couples’ stories later of how uncomfortable they felt despite how “pretty” the photo was- was confirmation of that. Choosing the right wedding photographers for your once-in-a-lifetime milestone isn’t for the faint of heart—being a newly engaged couple also means you are making a lot of BIG decisions in a short amount of time that feels overwhelming & pressure to make fast decisions.
The problem is that even if you’re given ALL the referrals from trusted vendors, family, and friends, you can be looking through all their pretty photos on their website/IG without really knowing if they are people who genuinely care & someone you're going to feel comfortable with.
You need a team on your side who understands the significance of being in front of the camera as a vulnerable experience and is a surrendering of control to the person behind the lens to preserve your memories.
To enable you to be Comfortable in front of the camera, to be Present & at Ease throughout your wedding journey.
To understand what these photos will mean to you in your Marriage, as your Legacy, & your Kids’ View of how a marriage should be.
To capture your wedding day in the details and moments that genuinely Look & Feel like YOU.

"Karissa and her team were amazing to work with! From the first time we met with her, we had felt so comfortable.
The team worked throughout the day so seamlessly, allowing for the wedding day to have a natural flow that reflects in the photos we received (instead of very posed pictures).
After the big day, we received all of our photos, approved our wedding album (which was INSANE TIMING), and we were so impressed because we were so impatient."
"Karissa & her team will Connect with you on a Personal Level.
Invest her Time & Energy in getting to Know You.
Make your day Special & Unlike any other wedding she has done."

I don't usually like photos of myself and I just didn't want my fiance to look bad.
But Karissa made me feel comfortable!
By the end of it, my fiance and I were talking in the car saying how much fun we had.
