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!

I’m Kara.
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!

Two and a half weeks ago, I had the honor to photograph another Osterhous daughter’s wedding. That’s right, this time it was Jessica’s turn!  Growing up in a small town (or area), you know a lot of people. That sometimes means that you know them well or you simply “know” them.
