CONGRATS! If you've got this far you must like me enough to want more info. No matter what stage in the booking process you are, please fill out the contact form in it's entirety. Believe it or not I need ALL of the info asked in order to get to know you + your unique needs so we can chat further. With the info gathered I know what you need in order to quote you, give you advice, and how to communicate with you. PS - I'm not the auto responder type. I get back to you with a personal message within 24-48 hours and I do not half ass those responses (so please) give me the same respect.
I know this process is stressful and expensive. But know this, when choosing me you are picking someone who genuinely gives a shit. TBH I still get nervous after 5+ years of experience. Why? Because I worry about every detail over and over again in my head days before your wedding. I've ran through every possible bad scenario and how to remedy it so you don't have too. I've been apart of many weddings and carry those experiences with me into the next one. Your hiring a professional. This is my full-time job, my career, not a hobby. I'm more than just your photographer that day. I'm planning, directing, creating, and capturing. I'm the only one who spends all day right by your side from start-finish. I debatably have the most responsibility for executing how the day turns out and I've been given massive trust to make 2-8 hours and 1-250+ people and 1 love story into a tangible narrative that people can follow for years to come.
"Karissa was an absolute dream. From the start of the engagement she saw us all the way to the big day. Her organizational skills mixed with her charisma made for an easy transition. Her passion reflects in what she caught on film. From the start of the day, through the reception which seemed to fly by, and into the smallest details. Each photo captures the magic of our special day. I am so thankful to have these memories shine thanks to the skills of Karissa. I would recommend her to everyone"
"Where to start? After scouring the internet and asking friends for recommendations for a photographer, we found Karissa through ""The Knot". We fell in love with her work right away. We saw how she captured candid love and joy in her photos, which was exactly what we were looking for. Once we reached out to her and starting chatting, we knew we found the right photographer for us. Not only because of the fantastic quality of her work, but also due to her incredible personality. She is fun, quick-witted, generous, and kind. On top of her photographing the wedding, she was more than willing to help give her thoughts and advice about wedding planning and was the biggest help in hammering down a wedding day itinerary. I don't know that everything would have gone as smoothly if she hadn't been such a huge support and help. I cannot rave enough about this incredible photographer and person. I would pick her again a million times over."
"Karissa is by far one of the best photographers in the business. Her attention to detail is impeccable. She also really listens to her couples. She was able to capture all the love, happiness, and magic of our engagement and wedding! In getting our wedding photos back, I was in complete awe of how PERFECT they were! I’m beyond glad that she was able to capture the best day of our lives. And I’m even more excited that I get to call her a friend. We love her and can’t wait for her to photograph all of our other monumental moments."
