She balances this relaxed feel with professionalism and direction to get the best shots. Many of our family and friends commented on how lovely she was to work with. It was a joy working with Karisa and our photos are absolutely STUNNING!”

"Karisa was an absolute joy to work with during our wedding day. An overwhelming theme among our guests was “your photographer was fantastic!” Karisa was communicative leading up to, during, and after the wedding, flexible, easy to work with, and had so many great photo ideas up her sleeve. She captured all the special details during the day, and was prepared even when I was not. Book Karisa for all your photographer needs, you won’t regret it!"

We had the opportunity to have Karisa capture all of the special moments of our wedding day and we couldn’t have been happier with how our photos turned out. Not only was she so organized, respectful and professional but she was such a blast to have at our wedding! She adapted to all of the different types of photos we wanted to take and she really made our vision come to life. You will not be disappointed! We will treasure our photos for the rest of our lives! Karisa made us feel so taken care of and she is great to work with. All of our guests loved her. 10/10!

After our wedding day we received the most compliments regarding our wedding photos- everyone and I mean EVERYONE was obsessed with how Karisa was able to capture our special day! From the big moments to the tiny details, Karisa made sure to capture it all! While Karisa's talent behind the camera really shows through her work, it was an added bonus to feel like one of our closest friends was behind the camera. Karisa has a special gift for making sure others feel confident & comfortable in front of the camera and we are excited to say that we are looking forward to our next shoot with Karisa in the future!
