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!

June was soooo good to us! I’m going to try to remember all of the highlights + the people, but there were so many good things that happened so I’m sure I’ll miss something 🙂 The past month started out (literally on June 1st) with the birth of our niece, Anna Pixley! And we even got […]
