Welcome to 

Welcome to the Kara Evans blog! This is a peek into my little corner of the world where I share engagement and wedding photos of my sweet couples in love, advice + encouragement for the creative community, a look into our personal life, of course, that isn't complete without lots of Georgie photos, and behind the scenes business love. Pour yourself a glass of wine or cup of coffee, cozy in, and stay awhile. Friend, I'm so glad you're here!
