"Karissa is amazing! I can't even remember how I came across her website, but I reached out to her last fall in preparation for my March 2019 wedding. We immediately bonded over California and wine. I loved her light and airy style of photography and her kitschy personality. It was hard planning a wedding across the country and not being able to meet all of my vendors in person before the big day, but Karissa felt like a long lost friend and I booked her services pretty quickly. We kept in contact over the months between and she was so patient with me, answering my million questions and updating our contract with last minute changes. The day before the wedding, we finally got to meet at the venue. I knew right away I made the right choice. She was so sweet but very take-care-of-business, which I loved. On the day of, she brought an assistant, Olivia, and they both were such a pleasure to work with. We were concerned about the timeline, but because of how on top of it they were, we actually had some extra time. They really helped keep everything in line and made sure to capture every moment, from multiple angles. Not only that, but Karissa was consistently checking in with me, seeing if I needed anything and always made sure I had a drink and water in hand (totally outside of her responsibilities as a photographer but so appreciated from a bride’s perspective)! Karissa sent over ~10 high-quality photos within 48 hours of the wedding to make sure I had a sneak peek. It was so neat to be on our honeymoon and receive those! The blog was up within 10 days, and the full album in under 3 weeks! Not only was the album available in less time than promised, but she also delivered over 600 quality photos! My husband and I were thrilled with Karissa's services. Anyone looking for a wedding photographer in the Las Vegas area should not hesitate a second when considering Karissa Russ & Co. :)"
"Karissa was a gem to work with from the beginning to the end! We are from Ottawa, Canada so it was very stressful to find a photographer in Vegas because we couldnt meet them before our big day. We reached out to Karissa and right away, she made us feel comfortable! We met her 5 minutes before our wedding began but it felt like we knew her for a long time already! She made us feel so comfortable during our shoot (specially my husband who hatesss taking pictures)! We were laughing and actually having fun! And that reflected in our pictures! Karissa was able to capture us so perfectly! We are beyond happy to have picked her to be our photographer!!"
"Karissa was extremely communicative, on time, and easy to work with. She was incredible during our photos, and knows how to keep the energy high. She’s knows the right things to say to keep you smiling, and has a ton of input on how to pose, and position yourself to get some incredible photos. Karissa could not of been a better photographer and is an all around great person to deal with. I cannot recommend her highly enough."
