Hi, I’m Kara - your wedding cheerleader!

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

say hello!

Whether you found my work as a past wedding guest, over on the ‘gram, or while browsing Pinterest, all love and couples are welcome here. No matter what your love looks like, I want you to feel seen because your love matters. As a wedding photographer, it's my commitment to treat every couple and wedding vendor equally, and I'm really glad you're here!

So, 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 wedding planning and a pool of Chicagoland wedding photographers, I’ve got you. 

My couples call me their wedding cheerleader.

After over eight years in the wedding industry and photographing 165+ wedding days, my favorite part of my job will always be this:
The sweet couples that come into my life (and wedding cake, duh)!

From texting me photos of your engagement session outfits to fluffing dresses on your wedding day... I believe that every couple deserves a kick booty wedding photography experience that feels more like the comforts of sipping a mojito 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.”

You can  call me Kara (care-uh) - your Nikon loving, sunset-obsessed photog and wedding cake connoisseur - all wrapped in one!

As soon as we meet, you'll learn that I love to talk, and we'll most definitely become friends. It's just what we do around here! And if one thing is for sure, wedding photography is about so much more than wedding photos, I promise you that!

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

Let's chat!

Let's chat! I'm excited to meet you!

"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!”
