Hi, I'm Karen. I am a boutique wedding and portrait photographer based out of LA, available for destinations worldwide. I have been shooting professionally for 20 years but fell in love with wedding photography about 5 years ago. I love love and capturing the beauty and emotions of your wedding day is an honor to me. My style is modern with a nostalgic feel. Photojournalistic moments will be captured throughout the day, as well as candids, and amazing portraits of you both.

Please take a look at my web site and blog to see if my style is a good match for your wedding then give me a call so we can chat. Oh, did I mention that all my packages come with a complimentary engagement session? Thanks for stopping by. Read less

Karen and her Handsome Assistant caught the moment at our Wedding. During the Engagement Photos we were slow to warm up because we're not camera kinda guys but once we found the perfect spot Karen just snapped away and caught the love between my husband to be and I.

During the Wedding Karen was very adamant about getting all the shots we requested and never let us pass up an opportunity for that picture perfect memory. Her assistant Blended into the crowd and took the perfect shots of all the excitement while she captured the details. Together we got more photos than we know what to do with and happily recommend Karen Ard Photographer for your next event.

Ode to Karen: Oh my...let the fawning begin. Karen Ard was a joy: disarmingly humorous, genuine, creative, attentive...she listens! Karen noted our concerns and desires, fears and preferences. She was subtly present, handled obstreperous group photos with commanding ease and dispatch. She captured the essence and connection I have with my wife which could only happen because we trusted her. We made a friend.

My husband (a photographer himself and therefore highly critical) and I were SO pleased, thrilled, and impressed with Karen's work. She did the documentary style that we wanted, and managed to capture such precious moments! She pressed that button just in time to catch our lives and keep our memories safe as our magical night unfolded. I would highly recommend her!

Karen Ard was the photographer for our wedding on April 13, 2013. Karen is a genuinely kind person with a great talent for photography. She listened to all of our non-traditional requests for poses and pictures and worked very hard to get them for us. Karen was able to capture all of the memories that we wanted preserved on our wedding day. Our wedding pictures are amazing and we owe that to Karen. We couldn’t be more pleased with Karen and we are grateful we have found our family photographer for all events in the future, big and small.

Yours Truly,
Crista and Jason Hermance

We are so happy we found Karen for our wedding! She immediately made us feel right at home in her studio the day we met. It felt as if we always knew her. We weren’t going to do engagement photos but it came with the package we ordered. So glad we did them! It gives you chance to spend more time with your photographer before the big day. Karen suggested we do the photo shoot at our house & the photos turned out amazing. We got rave reviews & so many people thought it was a unique idea instead of the usual beach or field pics. Wedding day we had Karen for 9 hours. Her & her assistant managed to take a gazillion pictures! My sister even commented when did they take some of these! We didn’t even notice them snapping away at some points. We had the sneak peak & all photos on her website after a month and she hand delivered the cd with all the photos by 6 weeks. Many photographers make you wait months. Karen is awesome! We love our wedding photos & will definitely be using her for future family shoots! Highly recommended!!

We chose Karen Ard as our wedding photographer for more than one reason. Besides producing beautiful photographs, for which we have received many compliments, she makes her clients feel very comfortable. We first met Karen when she was our friends' wedding photographer, and we were amazed at how relaxed she made everyone feel. We knew we wanted her product but also her personality and professionalism for our big day. Besides the photos, we have been told multiple times our wedding album is the nicest and most beautiful album people have ever seen. We are very happy with Karen and her products!

Karen is hands down the very best!!!! We used her for our engagement photos and wedding. She is so nice and easy to talk to. She made is feel so comfortable and really helped our love shine through her AMAZING pictures. Her artistic eye and vision really captured our special day. I'm so happy we went with her. We did a lot of looking and actually got burned by an other photography company a few months before the wedding. Finding Karen was a blessing and I made friend in the process!

Our realtor referred Karen to us (mutual friends). I love Karen's work. She sees the world through different eyes just like we do. It was great to have her know what we wanted for our wedding and put that into her photography. She is a creative person and sweet. I shared alot with her on our special day. She makes you feel like you've known each other for years and that's what you need. A friend that will take you vision and make it their own.
