"Karissa will capture the personalities and relationships of whoever she is photographing perfectly. She makes the experience so much fun and comfortable. After a very negative engagement picture experience with a different photographer, I was completely heartbroken over the fact that I may never get the photos that captured me and my fiance together during this special time of our lives. Karissa saved the day and actually brought me to tears when I received the photos from our session with her. Cannot recommend Karissa enough!"
"I can relive every moment of our big day just by looking at Karissa's amazing photos! I cannot begin to describe the wonderful experience we had with Karissa for our engagement photos and wedding. She made us feel incredibly comfortable, which made our personalities and relationship shine in each photo (a true feat for 2 awkward people like us!) Our wedding day was a mess due to the weather, and each photo she took shows NOTHING out of place. SHE'S A MIRACLE WORKER! I cannot tell you how good she made us look! Karissa is kind, hardworking, fun, and so talented!"
"Karissa is simply amazing. She captures moments that are natural and spontaneous. Her professionalism shined through as she kept family and bridal party pictures flowing and kept us ahead of schedule. She cares for her brides and grooms and offers advice, guidance, and works with you during each step. Her passion and enthusiasm for what she does was so evident and contagious! I'm so glad we chose her to capture our special day."
I can't wait to hear from you!
