Pop the bubbly & let's celebrate - you're getting married!

I'm Kara Evans, and that's my husband & business partner, Kyle! It’s our joy to document your love story and the moments of your wedding day with photos and video that stand the test of time. If you’re an engaged couple looking to build the foundation of your legacy through timeless wedding photos and video, then you’re right where you need to be!

SAY HELLO!

All love and couples are welcome here.

No matter what your love looks like, I want you to feel seen and celebrated because your love matters. As a wedding photographer, it's my commitment to treat every couple and wedding vendor equally, and I'm grateful you're here!

So, even if you’re feeling overwhelmed on your wedding photographer search, I promise you’re in the right place. From announcing your engagement one day to jumpin’ feet first into wedding planning and a pool of Chicagoland wedding photographers, I’ve got you. 

Throughout twelve wedding seasons and photographing 200+ wedding days, my favorite part of my job will always be documenting your love story and the moments of your wedding day with photos and videography that stand the test of time... Oh, and all the wedding cake, of course! From texting me photos of your engagement session outfits and planning timeline details to fluffing dresses and celebrating your love on your wedding day... I believe that every couple deserves a customized wedding photography (and videography!) experience because your wedding should be uniquely you.

About me

“If I ended up getting married 1,000 times (even though I only plan on it once!), I would choose Kara to be my photographer every time.”

-HANNAH

We got our engagement photos, wedding photos, and wedding videography through Kara. All the above were absolutely STUNNING, and we feel so blessed to have the beautiful memories to look back on our day. Truly, Kara and the team she has built, were made for this! We would make the decision to hire Kara a million times over.

your Nikon loving, sunset-obsessed photog and wedding cake connoisseur - all wrapped in one!

I'm Kara (care-uh) —

LET'S CHAT! I'm excited to meet you!

As soon as we meet, you'll learn that I love to talk, and we'll most definitely become friends. It's just what we do around here! And if one thing is for sure, wedding photography is about so much more than pretty wedding photos, I promise you that!

When I’m not photographing weddings throughout Chicagoland
or editing from my home office, you can find me spoiling our puppies Georgie and Jett, enjoying married life, spending time with family, spoiling the kiddos in our life as Auntie Kara, gardening in our backyard, or exploring breweries with my husband, Kyle.
