After photographing 250+ weddings and experiencing a global pandemic full of reschedules and cancellations, I’ve learned one thing that matters most -
REAL LOVE CONQUERS ALL.
Am-I-Right?

LAS VEGAS WEDDING +
ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER.

IN A SEA FULL OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS, YOU NEED SOMEONE WHO WILL PUT YOU + YOUR EXPERIENCE FIRST. JUST KNOW, YOUR WEDDING IS A HUGE DEAL TO ME (NO MATTER HOW UNCONVENTIONAL OR TRADITIONAL THE IDEAS YOU HAVE may be!) from start to finish the experience/how you felt will always outlast the photos.

I first found Karissa on Pinterest and LOVED her work- so when I found out she was available for our elopement- to say I was thrilled was an understatement! She was everything and MORE than I expected, from planning to the day of to the epic final photos- she was top notch and helped memorialize our spectacular elopement in all it's glittery, fantastical glory
- Hattie

KIND WORDS

Karissa is amazing! Such a cool, down to earth photographer who instantly makes you feel like a best friend. We flew into Vegas for our vow renewal, were embarrassingly late due to flight changes, but she rolled with the punches, and gave us so many local recommendations of where to eat and drink throughout the weekend. We love our photos

KIND WORDS

Karissa was so fantastic. Actually, she was beyond fantastic. She was so easy to work with. She was responsive. She was patient. She answered all of my questions and provided me with a bunch of advice and insight. She is very easy to talk to. Our elopement session was amazing. We are obsessed with our photos. Everyone that has seen them has commented on how beautiful they are. I had one job for Karissa - to capture our love. And she NAILED. IT.

HI, I’M KARISSA! (SHE/HER)

Feeling overwhelmed, confused,
don’t know where to start?

Most people who know me (personally) know that i like to keep it real. so - Just know I FULLY understand the pressures of planning a wedding. (I planned mine in a month while 14 weeks pregnant during COVID) because why the hell not? If you take anything from my website, let it be THIS. Forget the fads and all the ‘shoulds’ of weddings. Let go of your family/friend’s expectations. Let’s check in, be yourself, do YOU, and enjoy the fuck out of your day! Because I’ve got you covered.

Consider me an extra bridesmaid/grooms lady (a VERY experienced one) who just happens to have a camera in her hand all day. as such, I’ll always be the first to advocate for you, make sure you have a drink in your hand, and be the ultimate hype lady. don't worry, I also fully understand your concerns of awkwardness and insecurities, because I have them too. I truly pride myself on knowing when to step in and be directive but more importantly knowing when/how to step back and let your day unfold + flow naturally.

LET ME WALK YOU THROUGH IT.

01 /

Please - stalk me. That looks like reading my website entirely, visiting my social media (IG, FB, Pinterest) & getting an undeniable feeling in your gut that I’m the one for you. Reach out!

02 /

You receive an email back from me within 24-48 hours after receiving your inquiry form. We can chat via email or set up a call/video call option to get to know one another + help me get a feel for the direction you are going and what you are currently lacking in the planning process.

03 /

We both agree we are a great fit and decide to move forward. You let me know and I do a little dancy dancy on the other side of the screen (because you are supporting a small business) and I send you all the things needed to make it official and lock me dowwwwwn.

04 /

The contract is signed + retainer of $500 is paid. Now, we are planning. For some couples that looks like helping you lock down a few more vendors, or plan an engagement session of your dreams.

05 /

If you are planning a large wedding we start with a questionnaire, lock in a timeline, solidify the details and get you down the aisle.

06 /

It’s been a few weeks since the best day of your life - you get home from your honeymoon or a hard day at work to a blissful email from yours truly. You grab the LOYL pop a bottle and go through your images.
