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 and encouragement for creatives to behind the scenes photos and life with our pups.

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

When I'm not photographing weddings, you can usually find me in my home office with snuggly puppies at my feet! Grab a drink (a cup of decaf, mojito, or a glass of rosé if you're like me), kick up your feet, and stay awhile!
