romantic, Authentic Photography that never goes out of style

If you’re the kind of couple who just wants to relax and have a stress-free wedding day filled with close family, friends and maybe even the dog, we’re going to be a great fit. You probably want a mix of candid, documentary-style photos and classic portraits that never go out of style. Fortunately, your wedding photographs CAN be all those things — fun, classy and full of real emotion and authentic moments. Elope on a mountaintop, rent a hip bed and breakfast for the weekend or put together a backyard shindig for all your friends — whatever your vision, I can help you remember it forever.

Hi! I’m Kara

I’m a wedding and elopement photographer based in the Shenandoah Valley of 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.”
