hey  there!

We're Kyle and Kara, your favorite wedding photo and video team!

Photography and videography for the newlyweds-to-be that love tacos, big bouquets, all things weddings, and most of all, each other.


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 eleven wedding seasons and photographing over 200 wedding days, my favorite part of my job will always be this:
The sweet couples that come into my life (and wedding cake, duh)!
From texting me photos of your engagement session outfits to fluffing dresses on your wedding day... I believe that every couple deserves a kick booty wedding photography (and videography!) experience that feels more like the comforts of sipping a mojito with your best friend.

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.”


"Kara helped with our timeline, had the best advice for day-of questions, and knew how to keep the day rolling! This wonder woman not only photographs, but takes the time to write blogs on each couple and to share wedding planning advice - WOW!”



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

I'm Kara (Care-Uh) —

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 wedding photos, I promise you that!

When I’m not photographing weddings throughout Chicagoland
or editing from my home office, you can find me snuggling our puppies Georgie + Jett, lovin’ on my family, spoiling the kiddos in our life as Auntie Kara, gardening in our backyard (aka pulling weeds, ha!), or exploring breweries with my love, Kyle.

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