NATURAL. ROMANTIC. BOLD.
If you’re a quirky, awkward couple who just wants to relax and have fun on your wedding day, don’t worry — working with couples like you is my speciality. You probably want a mix of candid, documentary-style photos and classic portraits mom can hang on her mantel. I see you. Your wedding photographs CAN be all those things — fun, classy and full of real emotion and authentic moments — tears, the last hug with mom before you walk down the aisle, your dog stealing a slice a cake. Because let’s be honest, your wedding is a once in a lifetime experience that deserves to be captured beautifully, authentically and boldly.
“We’ll always be able to look back and remember how we felt in those moments, something that is truly invaluable.”

Hi! I’m Kara
I’m a wedding and elopement photographer based in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and Charleston, West Virginia. The Blue Ridge Mountains are in my bones and I love exploring Shenandoah National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway with my clients (and their dogs!) for engagements and elopements.
Speaking of dogs…I have four so if you want to include your pup in your wedding or engagement session I have lots of tricks and tips to help that go smoothly.
A few of my favorite things include: first looks, sunrise engagement sessions on the top of a mountain, snuggling at home with my husband and four dogs with no makeup on and coffee. Lot’s of coffee.
“Kara has a great eye and goes above and beyond to get magical shots…her use of light and color make for almost surreal photos.”
