you deserve to be fully present

in your most special moments

and I have the best job in the world!
 As your photographer, I am here to make sure you feel comfortable to 10000% be yourselves and have the most joyful, stress-free day, so you can live in the moment. I will make sure every moment is captured so well; your biggest ones, the little in-between ones, and the ones you maybe won't even see yourself.

I pretty much become besties with my clients and that helps make the photos and the overall experience amazing!

I cannot wait to get to know you!


more ABOUT me


i'm karissa!

some of the humans and memories

i love so much

Being a wedding photographer is SO much more to me than just showing up and taking pictures. I care deeply about YOU, your story, and your marriage, not just your wedding day. 

Karissa is such a bright spirit and overall wonderful person. 
Her services are out of this world and she promises to be more than just a photographer, which is held true from experience! Karissa shot my engagement session as well as my wedding and having her in my corner was a blessing. She is the biggest hype-woman, offers to help with timelines, holds your stuff, gets you private time with your loved one, and makes sure to get the shots that are important to you; very full and diverse collection of genuine and beautiful shots.
I cannot recommend her enough. You’ll get a friend out of her for sure.

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, but 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.

Karissa was our dream photographer. She is so easy to work with and a joy to be around! She goes out of her way to get to know who you are and what you love! We used Karissa for both our engagement photos and wedding photos. We showed up to our engagement session and it started to down pour. Karissa was so optimistic and shot our photos while it was raining.. and of course, she made them look perfect!! Our wedding day was gorgeous. She was laidback, but also organized. She is so much fun to work with!! Her photos are raw, beautiful, and her personality shines through them! I am so thankful to have the photos Karissa took of us for a lifetime!
