if you ever wanted to know 3 things about me - Those 3 statements pretty much sum my life up in a nutshell. I can’t function without caffeine. PERIOD. Especially after becoming a mom on top of a full time business owner.

I’m loyal to my core, which makes me care like A LOT. I’ll be the first to admit, I fog up my own glasses as I cry during the exchange of your vows or hearing your best friend’s voices crackle while giving their heartfelt speeches. I’m also the first to laugh and encourage something even mildly inappropriate if it encourages crowd participation. 

The third part of that statement is over swearing, yes I cuss. *spicy* i know but It’s a form of expression, I hear that people who cuss are more intelligent? So, let’s go with that!



here are the basics - i was born + raised in vegas. I know all the ins and outs of this crazy city! i fell in love with a dude who hated me in middle + high school. we did long distance for years and we had the cutest kid on planet earth. i function on a fluid only diet (coffee/red bulls, white claws, whiskey sours, and wine) Shopping, decorating, thrifting, are liiiife. ya girl loves to spend her own money. I dig my rap/rock MGK, good acoustics + violin covers. I have an obsession with Will Farrell movies because I love dumb comedy. fair #Warning You will get Will Farrell memes from me, so just be prepared. Did we just become best friends?!

Associate Shooter (Heather) From Heather - Karissa's right-hand woman from maternity leave & beyond! I'm a boy mom to 2 of the cutest boys! My guilty pleasures are Americanos, Moscow Mules, Avocado Toast, Mediterranean food & True Crime podcasts (Crime Junkie & The Murder Squad are my faves!!!)! I also love off-roading, camping + any road trip where I can get to my destination in 5 hours or less! Capturing epic love stories is truly my passion & I am so happy to help Karissa while she's beginning a new epic chapter of her life!


I didn’t have a clue about who to pick for our wedding in Vegas. Bring from Louisiana this made it extremely scary for us. But I saw Karissa’s work and immediately fell in love, but still not getting to work with her it was still a little nerve wracking. But she made the entire process SUPER amazing, she’s extremely detailed, wants to get to know you before you even meet. Day of she took control and made sure our vision was everything and more. I wish I could give her 100 stars. The day I got my photos back, we were both in tears. It flooded me back with all our memories, and she is very affordable, I honestly don’t know why you would want to use anyone else!

KIND WORDS

There are not enough words to express how glad I am that we booked Karissa for our engagement photos (and future wedding photos). From the first email with Karissa, I absolutely loved her personality and knew we had to book her for photos. Talking with Karissa is honestly like talking with a dear friend, she is so outgoing and it is obvious she loves what she does. My fiancé and I have never had professional photos done and can be shy in front of the camera…but Karissa had us giggling so hard our faces hurt during the entire engagement session. She truly captured so many amazing photos that I will cherish forever. I’m so excited to continue to work with her for our wedding next year!!!
