Meet Your Elopement Photographer

Karen’s work is incredible! We watched the slideshow tonight with our daughter and it was perfect for story telling. Karen delivers more than just a file of photos, she delivers a story. With Karen’s well balanced guidance, energy, and peacefulness My husband and I were able to submerge ourselves in the present moment and truly feel like it was just the two of us.

About Karen

I thrive on new experiences and have a deep love for California, meeting new people, stories, and cultures. I have lived in the Bay Area, Sacramento, Los Angeles, and currently in Orange County, and there are few things I enjoy more than exploring my beautiful state. The outdoors captured my heart at a young age, and I am happiest when backpacking, hiking, camping, or swimming in a river, and I love sharing this sense of adventure with couples I work with. 

When I'm not teaching preschoolers with special needs, I'm photographing love stories. I cherish every story that my couples bring me: from how you met your partner, to how you decided on forever. I believe it is a privilege to document your elopement, and I can’t wait to help you create authentic images that you will treasure for a lifetime. I believe your marriage celebration should be a reflection of your partnership, not just an event for others to enjoy, and I can’t wait to help you create the day of your dreams

If you value meaningful, intentional, and genuine moments with your partner, I'm your girl. I'm not about beating around the bush and putting on performances when it comes to your elopement photos - I want you to truly show up as you are as we celebrate your partnership. More than anything, I want to ensure you create something more than just photos, but powerful memories that last a lifetime.

I’m Karen, your California Elopement Photographer and Lover of Authentic Celebrations.

As a hard-core introvert, I love the intimacy of a "just us" elopement day and the safe space it delivers. 

Are you ready for more than just a photoshoot?
