"MY TOP PRIORITY IS HELPING MY COUPLES ENJOY THEIR MEMORIES THROUGH BEAUTIFUL PICTURES TO NOT ONLY STRENGTHEN THEIR MARRIAGE BUT LEAVE A LEGACY."

I know planning a wedding can be fun and also a lot of work. And choosing your photographer is a big decision that will  have a lasting impact – with how the wedding day flows and also how you will remember the moments afterward. That is why my top priority is helping my couples enjoy their wedding day memories over and over again through beautiful pictures to not only strengthen their marriage but leave a legacy for their children and grandchildren.

I love making sure the wedding experience is as stress-free and fun as possible - from our first phone call, to your engagement session, your wedding day, and the delivery of your beautiful heirloom photo album. I am here for you!

Wedding Experience Process

A PEEK INSIDE THE

WEDDING INVESTMENT

collections start at $2500

STEP ONE: LET'S GET TOGETHER

Do you think we'd be a good fit? Yay! Let's meet up for coffee or cocoa (my treat!)! I'd love to hear more about the dreams and plans for your wedding day and how I could help you with that! 

Once officially booked, you are part of the KSP Family, and you'll receive my Bridal Guide with tips and inspiration for planning your special day!

STEP TWO: ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Honestly, the Engagement Session is one of my favorites part of the Wedding Experience because it's a relaxed time where we can get to know each other, while also getting some beautiful pictures! I love coaching my couples through natural, fun poses and activities. Be prepared to laugh and have fun!

STEP THREE: WEDDING PLANNING

You are not alone in the planning process - I am here for you! I love helping my couples put together a Wedding Day Timeline to make sure the day runs smoothly and we have time for all the different pictures you'd like. I also send my couples a Questionnaire to ensure we got all the correct details, names, and pieces so that we can perfectly capture your day!

STEP FOUR: WEDDING DAY!

The Day you've been dreaming of is finally here! My goal is to help your day be as fun and stress-free as possible, so that you can slow down and savor all the moments. Because it truly does go fast! I'll be there, capturing all the laughs, tears, and details for you to relive for years afterward. 

STEP FIVE: GALLERY DELIVERY

I will post Previews on Instagram and Facebook right after your wedding so that you can enjoy and share your pictures with friends and family immediately! Within 8 weeks of your wedding day, be prepared for beautiful picture overload! I will email you a private gallery link where you can view, download, and share your images and order any professional prints and products. 

STEP SIX: ALBUM DESIGN

My goal is for you to enjoy your pictures in person as soon as possible after your wedding day. So, after your Gallery Delivery, I will put together a Design for your handcrafted Album. You will be able to view it online and make any comments and adjustments you like to the design. Once it's approved and printed, your beautiful album will be waiting on your doorstep within 4 weeks.

Karen is not only an incredible photographer, but also an absolutely wonderful person! Her sweet personality made my fiancé and me feel so comfortable from the moment we met her. Having a photoshoot can sometimes be awkward, but Karen will make the entire process so sweet. You will absolutely love your time with her and LOVE her stunning work!

- Savanna

As a fellow photographer, I can say Karen is amazing. She's kind, patient and extremely talented. I can't recommend her enough. We absolutely love are photos from our session. Thank you Karen!

- Tricia 

Karen did an amazing job as our wedding photographer! She made everything very comfortable and relaxed, but was also very professional and on top of the details. We had confidence in the quality of her work and were not disappointed. People keep commenting to us on how well the photos turned out and we couldn't agree more! She captured the day so well for us to remember for decades to come. The included engagement photo session with her was also a lot of fun!

- Zach & Anna 

Karen is incredible! She is so thoughtful and sensitive in the way that she works with her clients, and her work is absolutely stunning!

- Dan & Olivia

Thank you for everything, Karen! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. You are a great photographer and you have given us one of the best gifts that we will always cherish. We love our pictures so much and the album is so beautiful! We really appreciate all that you have done for us!
