MEET KARA!

A HUGGER, A TALKER, A LOVER OF LOVE.. CRIEs HAPPY TEARS AT EACH and every wedding she photographs.

i'm in love with...

My husband and high school sweetheart Kyle, our rescue pup #georgieannevans [give me ALL the snuggle time], time and laughter with family and friends, popcorn, mustard yellow, pink, shopping, wine, the number seven, baking, home decor, and reading sappy books.

i'm a hugger...

I will squeeze you when I meet you, greet you, and say goodbye - you should just expect that from me! Oh, and I LOVE to talk! I am passionate about marriage and being a wife, and my husband is my #1 supporter. Marriage has been one of the biggest challenges and blessings in my life, and I want to share it with others.

starting my business...

In 2013, I started my business out of my cramped college dorm room with no idea where things would go... To this day, I still remember packaging welcome gifts out of that little room! Since then, I was fortunate enough to take my wedding and family photography business full-time in 2015! Now, on a typical workday you'll find me working from my pink desk chair (of course!), most likely in yoga pants and a Strawberry Revolution tee, and yes, with a snuggly little puppy on my lap! That's #karabehindthescenes for ya!


i'm in love with love...

Hello, lovely! I'm Kara Evans.

I’m a major sap, and I just own it because what else can you do?! I cry happy tears with nearly every wedding day that I photograph, and there is just something entirely sweet about photographing a family interacting, laughing, and being themselves. I never would have guessed that this would be my job and my joy - my avenue of serving others, but I wouldn't change this crazy, challenging, fulfilling journey for anything!



before you scroll...

You should also know that I seriously LOVE cake (all the cake basically, but German Chocolate is my #1 favorite)!

If you like the way I see, I would sincerely love to hear from you!

A little Q + A with

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?

My husband inspires me... He is my rock, my supporter, and my love. I am constantly encouraged by him! Building relationships as an entrepreneur also intensely fuels my fire and pushes me to be better while serving others through my work. And even more, my faith keeps me going throughout this journey by teaching me more about how I can use my God-given talents than I could have ever imagined. 

Are you a self-taught photographer?

For the most part, yes! I completed one college class and attended a few conferences, but I continually learn from the photography community around me - reading (lots of reading!), observing, watching videos, and shooting. Photographing love and life push me to learn more each and every time I pick up my camera. Outside of photography, I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication and Rhetorical Studies.

WHEN IS YOUR FAVORITE TIME TO PHOTOGRAPH?

I love shooting in the warm, golden, and glowing light of a summer sunset. There is something about the gorgeous sunset light that makes me feel so fulfilled and faithful in creating. But don't get me wrong, I LOVE a snowy session, capturing the blooming colors of spring, and the warm oranges and reds of fall. Every season brings me happiness as another season to photograph.

Do you specialize in a certain area of photography?

Yes! I specialize in wedding and family photography. I would love to share recommendations of some of my fav photog friends that specialize in areas outside of my specialty if you’re looking for a newborn, extended family, or senior photographer!

DO YOU OFFER ONE-ON-ONE MENTORING?

YES! Feel free to reach out to me via my contact form to say hello and talk about setting up a one-on-one mentoring session. And yes, there will most definitely be coffee AND cake!

What is your favorite tool as a photographer?

Lightroom CC and a task timer. I love the streamlined, less stress workflow that Lightroom allows me to have, and my task timer keeps me on track!

What is your go-to lens?

It's true, my 85mm f/1.4 wins! I reach for this lens pretty much 85% of the time, and I've been hooked ever since I photographed with it for the first time. It allows such a natural, real perspective. A couple years ago, my answer would have been my 50mm f/1.4, but that all changed when I met the dreamy 85mm. And yes, I'm a prime lens kinda gal!
