Writing to you from my pink desk chair in my very own little corner of the world (aka my home office).

Welcome to the Kara Evans Photographer blog where I share all the things - from love stories to my favorite big bouquets to encouragement for creatives to behind the scenes to photos of our Georgie girl.

Kick off your shoes and stay awhile - I’m so glad you’re here!

Eeeek – I am beyond honored to share Nadia and Brendan’s romantic blush and gold wedding day at Room 1520 in Chicago on the blog today! These two and this day were perfect. You might remember these two from earlier this year when we met for their late winter/early spring engagement session… And even though […]


Happy new year! It’s time for my last (but not least) monthly recap from the past year… The month of December was good to us! Our month started with a Thanksgiving gathering – it’s so odd to me that the Thanksgiving holiday was so late this year. Then we were rolling into the new month! […]


December 2019 Recap | My Life Mondays

It’s the holiday season, yay! I love this time of the year. There’s just something about letting the joy and holiday spirit in the air fill your very own spirit and soul with happiness. I know it’s been a hot minute since I’ve shared a Friday Five blog, so this time, I’m sharing one in […]


Five Things I’m Loving Right Now – Holiday Edition | Friday Five

See ya later November! I’m back with another monthly recap in online scrapbook form – aka the blog! Ummmm, does anyone else feel like November was here and gone in a flash? I feel like I kept saying that Thanksgiving was “so late” this year, and then it was here quicker than I imagined. I […]


November 2019 Recap | My Life Mondays

The month of October flew by! Don’t you think so, too? Throughout the month, we got settled in our new home between Kyle’s work at the brewery, family time, and photographing many fall weddings and sessions. I used to tell myself that… “Things will slow down when…” but now I’m finding that life is better […]


October 2019 Recap | My Life Mondays

What a month! I’m over here in disbelief that it’s already OCTOBER… Friends, how can it be that we’re already within the last 90 days of 2019! The month of September was full. It was busy and full and good. When I went back through my iPhone camera roll to dig up photos from the […]


September 2019 Recap | My Life Mondays

I don’t know about you, but I always feel like summer has completely slipped away by the time Labor Day weekend rolls around… And this year is no exception. Especially since we’ve been having fall-like weather already! So, before I lean in and embrace the almost fall season, I want to share my August recap blog! The […]


August 2019 Recap | My Life Mondays

Whoa, where did the month of July go? As usual, I’m happy to share a recap of our last month of doing life together! The month of July started out with some pool time (amen!) and a night swim with some of our cousins. But best of all? A new little baby boy was born […]

My Favorite Things of Summer | Friday Five

Can you believe we’re already halfway through the year?! The month of June started with a happy birthday FaceTime with our niece in Alaska before photographing a summer wedding day. Then we rolled into the first week of the month complete with meetings with brides, an engagement session, and maternity photos for my dear cousin […]


June 2019 Recap | My Life Mondays

Today we’re celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary! Happy five married years to us 😍 When I look back on that cloudy 70-something degree day we married, I will be honest – there are lots of things I don’t remember… I don’t remember watching the weather forecast, stressing over wedding week to-do’s, or making sure everything […]
