Pin High Farm Wedding

"Kara is an incredible photographer! The whole process of booking, scheduling our engagement photos and hammering out the wedding details went so smoothly with her! She took the time to understand our wedding vision, and asked us about our story as a couple. She got to know us and helped us feel more comfortable in front of the camera!"

These sessions are so much fun, but they serve an important purpose. 



Not used to being professionally photographed? Nervous for the big day? 

This session is a great way to shake off any nervousness or jitters that might come from being in front of the lens.

That'll be our first opportunity to work together. We'll explore beautiful locations or ones that are near-and-dear to you. I get to learn more about you as a couple: stories of your relationship, experiences you've shared, while I get a feel for how you interact! 



I love helping people feel relaxed in front of the camera. And here's a secret--everyone can do it!

By the end of the night, we already had a sneak peek photo, and within a couple of days, we had our full gallery of over 500 pictures. She truly poured all her energy and heart into photographing our wedding day."

frequently asked questions 

I've done up to 20-30 weddings per year. I love being part of someone's big day. But as a passionate business owner, I also devote my full attention to each client.

Are you a camera-tech lover like me? Yes? Then I'm so glad you asked! I have a long list of camera equipment I regularly use. But I have to say, my ultimate favorite is my Canon 5D Mark IV. 

Yes--and just like KWP, they're business owners at the same level of expertise. I only hire fully-vetted professional photographers to assist with your big day. You expect the best, and they’ll deliver.

Absolutely! New places, new adventures--let's do it. I've shot weddings in Cincinnati, New York, and beyond. I'd be thrilled to travel for your nuptials.

I would be sad to hear of any cancellation! Any money paid before cancellation, including the retainer, is non-refundable. 

Expect to receive access to your full online gallery in six weeks. But you can see a preview on the KWP blog shortly after your wedding day!

Yes! I preserve memories for everyone's special day. Love is love. That's all that matters.

I've photographed a multitude of venues! From museums to parks to gardens, churches, barns, backyards, and even the side of a mountain. I can shoot anywhere and everywhere. 
If I haven't photographed your particular venue before--no problem, I'll do a walk through the morning of--explore the best locations and spots for photography. I also conduct an extensive amount of online research beforehand. 

I strongly recommend engagement shoots for the reasons I've mentioned above. However, if you and your fiancé would rather not have an engagement session, that's OK. 
I include engagement sessions as a complimentary service for all packages because I strongly believe in the benefit of having one. For this reason, I do not lower the price should you choose to forgo it. 

Though I mainly shoot weddings, I also offer photography sessions for newborns and seniors
