Hey love, I’m Kara, a bride’s best friend!

Photography for the dog-loving newlyweds-to-be that love tacos, big bouquets, all things weddings, and most importantly, each other.

say hello!

You’re looking for connection, professionalism, and a little bit of fun just like the icing on the cake. (C'mon, I had to drop a cheesy pun -  I'm a romantic wedding photographer!)

Whether you found me through a friend, guest at a past wedding or saw me tagged online, this is where we see if it's the perfect fit.

Even if you’re feeling overwhelmed on your wedding photographer search, I promise you’re in the right place. From announcing your engagement one day to jumpin’ feet first into a pool of Chicagoland wedding photographers, I’ve got you. 

My couples call me their wedding cheerleader.

After more than seven years in the wedding industry and photographing 145+ wedding days, my favorite part of my job:
There's nothing better than the sweet couples that come into my life!

From texting me photos of your engagement session outfits to fluffing your wedding dress... I believe that every couple deserves a kick booty wedding photography experience that feels more like the comforts of sipping a mojito (or two!) with your best friend.

“If I ended up getting married 1,000 times (even though I only plan on it once!), I would choose Kara to be my photographer every time.”

The only thing I love more than going on a Target run? Carrying big bouquets and telling love stories through romantic wedding day photos.

You’ll love your wedding videography experience even more than I love chips and guac on Taco Tuesday, and that’s a lot.

AS SEEN IN...

Hey love, I’m Kara - your Nikon-loving, sunset-obsessed photographer and wedding cheerleader - all wrapped in one with a pretty little bow… 

When I’m not photographing weddings throughout Chicagoland, you can find me snuggling our puppies Georgie + Jett, lovin’ on my family, spoiling the littles in our life as Auntie Kara, gardening in our backyard (aka pulling weeds, ha!), or exploring breweries with my hubby Kyle.

Yep, just like those wedding gifts that’ll be coming your way before ya know it!

Am I the icing on your wedding cake?

"Kara helped with our timeline, had the best advice for day-of questions, and knew how to keep the day rolling! This wonder woman not only photographs, but takes the time to write blogs on each couple and to share wedding planning advice - WOW!”
