After talking to several photographers referred to me by friends, and feeling like I wasn't being listened to, I turned to the internet and found Karen. I spoke with her on the phone, and was immediately impressed with how sharp and flexible she seemed. After viewing her portfolio and reading about her background, I booked her immediately.

Karen not only did an amazing job photographing our wedding, but she was also very personable and super easy to work with. She is kind and funny and made me and my husband feel very much at ease throughout our event.

She was by far the best vendor we worked with as we navigated the muddy and bloody trenches of wedding planning :)

Karen is absolutely fantastic, and comes highly recommended from a couple with very high expectations.

Karen shot our engagement pics then also shot our wedding. She was absolutely amazing to work with. I was nervous at first about the posed shots, but Karen made me feel comfortable and our wedding album looks terrific.

She managed to get all kinds of great shots without us even realizing she was taking them. We wanted photos that really captured the day and wanted the formal pictures to look natural, instead of the usual posed looking stuff. Really, really beautiful job, plus she's just really cool and friendly. I highly recommend her.

Karen photographed our wedding photos last fall, and we couldn't be happier. Our pictures were amazing, and she captured so many special moments between us and our loved ones.
She is incredibly friendly and we felt like she was a friend of ours.
We highly recommend her to anyone!

Karen was a joy to work with.
Very professional, very courteous and the pictures are AWESOME!
Everyone has been very impressed with the quality of the photos taken.
She was also very flexible with our needs and was willing to travel from the Los Angeles area to Ventura to take the pictures.
She was also very aware of traditions and religious customs and made sure not to step on any toes.
I would recommend her to everyone I know that's getting married, needs baby photos, or is getting engaged.
You definately get what you're paying for and more!

Karen was excellent on all counts. She put in a very long day with us from the wedding prep all the way through the after-party, and we are so incredibly grateful for the moments she was able to capture. They say you don't remember your wedding day and that is certainly true for me. If not for Karen's excellent documentation of the event, I'm not sure I'd believe it ever happened.

Karen's work is beautiful and unique. She's worth every penny.
