Karen and her team were absolutely amazing throughout our day. They laughed with us, took breath taking pictures of us, and made us feel relaxed while taking pictures. She was able to replicate images I asked for while taking her own creative images.

I couldn't have picked a better photographer from start to finish. I am thankful she was able to capture our wonderful day!

We were married on Maui in May 2014 and hired Karen Loudon to fly over from the big island. I was ecstatic when she had the availability, because she was the only photographer whose style and images I fell in love with. Her eye and talent set her miles apart from any of the other photographers I came across in my search. From the second I met her, I knew I had made the right decision. She is incredibly down-to-earth, friendly, easy-going, and made the whole experience fun and memorable. I can't say enough positive things about her! When we got our sneak peek photos, my husband, myself and our family and friends were blown away. Stunning photos and I couldn't be happier. We can't recommend Karen Loudon enough!

Love, love, love Karen Loudon! She is so easy going and low key and just made our whole wedding session so easy! No stress, no uncomfortable fake posing, just really natural and a wonderful time......and then I got the "sneak peak" photos the next day. OMG!!!! I just love what she captured. The light and the angles were so perfect! It was so much better than I was expecting, even after having poured over her entire website before I selected her. Can't say enough great things about her. Just book her!

We booked Karen for our elopement in Hawaii. She was fantastic from the beginning recommending the perfect beach and minister. We couldn't have been happier with her. She is the loveliest of people, very relaxed and warm.

She comes with a bank of great ideas and made the whole thing stress free. Her sneak preview photos are just beautiful and everyone was very jealous of it all once they saw the beautiful pics.

Our 13 month old son was there too and his being there didn't phase her and she was great at making sure to get great shots of him too

Highly recommended if you want an excellent and lovely photographer to make your day memorable.

Karen was amazing! She showed up exactly on time and prepared. She was so sweet and her eye for light and detail were phenomenal. She even made sure to cover all the poses that I wanted to do (via a Pinterest Board for her). We received 48 sneak peek photos the day after the wedding and they took my breath away. I cannot wait to see the rest. It was a pleasure to work with Karen and would highly recommend her to anyone!

Karen took many beautiful photos for us. She even stayed a bit longer for us when our cake cutting started late. Some photographers are sticklers for time and come across miserly with their constant clock watching but Karen wasn't like that at all. Paying for my wedding myself and seeing how so much of it is a bald-faced cash grab this really resonated with me. She was very personable and took lots of photos for us, even working directly from a wish list provided by my wife.

My husband and I planned to elope to the island of Hawaii (the "Big Island") back in January of this year, so we started planning quite early on. While we didn't want to spend a lot to get married on the whole, photography has always been a very important aspect of the wedding to me and well worth any money spent.

After searching for photographers in the Kona area, I stumbled upon some of Karen's work and was instantly smitten with her soft and intimate photography style. We didn't wait long to book her and were so happy that she was able to take our photos this December on our wedding day.

Karen was timely in responding to emails right from the start and she made the process entirely easy. Because we didn't arrive to Hawaii Island until just a couple days before our wedding day, Karen made the time to meet with us for coffee once we arrived to discuss a few last minute details as well as to see what we had in mind. I had created a Pinterest board with some ideas, and Karen very thoughtfully incorporated those ideas into our wedding day photo session.

The next day Karen had a handful of photos ready to provide us with a "sneak peek" and both my husband and I were blown away. The beauty and simplicity of our day that Karen captured in the photos was absolutely incredible. I can't wait to see the rest of them!

I'd be more than happy to recommend Karen Loudon for anyone getting married on Hawaii Island. She also apparently does family sessions, engagement sessions, maternity, etc. and I've got no doubt she'd be a breeze to work with in any of those capacities!

Everything positive that you have read on previous reviews are all true and consistent. I chose her because I wanted a photojournalistic approach and her portfolio on her website was just stunning. It stood out from the rest of the other photographers that I researched on. Karen Loudon is professional, on time, engaging, and beautifully talented. Her soft spoken demeanor makes you feel comfortable when you pose for pictures yet her directions are explicit. I am from Los Angeles and my correspondences with her were all via e-mail, yet she was quick to respond.

Initial planning was stress-free, she made sure that it was allowed to professionally photograph the location I wanted which was close to St Benedict's Church (where I got married), The Place of Refuge. Also, since I will only be able to meet her the day of the wedding, she encouraged me to send her inspirational photos that I would like to be photographed as and she no doubt exceeded them. Her pictures ended up looking way better than the pictures that I pinned on my Pinterest board!

She was also very flexible. I had changed my mind a couple of times on where she would start, and we did make some changes of what to shoot and where along the way. She was very graceful about it. She even let us shoot a little "photo bomb" photo which came out great! Ultimately, I had her for 5 hours for 3 locations (church, beach, reception) for about 20 guests. I did not feel rushed or scuttled along, and she covered almost every detail of the wedding events.

My sneak peaks came as quickly as she promised. I got married in November, I got the rest of my images late February and they looked amazing. Everyone who saw them were all impressed. Everything from "This was in studio!" to "You guys look like models" to "Was this shot for a wedding magazine cover?" They were all amazed. It looked beautiful, intimate, soft, romantic, and even little vintage-y. A great experience! Worth the money! Thank you Karen!

I wish I could give Karen way more than 5 stars for her work. She was not only very professional but super friendly and personable. When she arrived at the hotel I was a nervous mess, it was pouring rain on my outdoor Kona wedding etc. As soon as Karen got to the room chatted with me for a few moments and got to work shooting detail shots I knew I was in good hands. She was able to use the rain to my advantage too, we took some very cute umbrella shots :) My sneak peak photos were the more beautiful then I had ever imagined them to be, my mom cries whenever she looks at them. Karen and her assistant went above and beyond to get the perfect shots. Karen's assistant even loaned me her shoes so I could walk on the wet lava rocks to get those perfect shots, I was in heels of course. Loved Karen, loved her assistant..Brae? I know I have the name right, the spelling not so sure, apologies. Dynamite photos! I want to come back to Hawaii to do a maternity shoot with Karen, hopefully very soon :)

Karen was our photographer for our small intimate wedding on the Big Island Hawaii. She took the time ahead to ask me what I wanted and at the time hit every note. I found her easy to work with, very helpful in guiding us along the way and she truly made the process easy and fun for us. I dont photograph well and so far from what I've seen so far from the shots taken her expertise and abilities to capture feelings and beauty are worth every cent. I more than highly recommend Karen to any Bride out there, you wont be disappointed. She is as good as her portfolio shows....

If I could give Karen 10 out of 5 I would! She was so calm and responsive to my needs. Even starting with a survey when we first booked so she would have information about our families and photos we liked! She took exactly all the information I told her and remembered it (down to my good side and shots I wanted) she even let us take control and just do fun photos that we're not planned!
She even stayed a little late to get all the last shots I wanted! I just got a preview of my photos and I am OBSESSED! People are already telling me they look like they should be in a magazine! You will not be disappointed and you will absolutely be able to capture the moment you want with Karen as your photographer! Her assistant is GREAT as well!!!
Wish we lived in Hawaii so we could use her for all our photos down the line!
Thanks Karen for capturing the moments I'll look back on forever!!! Cannot wait to see them all!!!!

Karen photographed our destination wedding on the Big Island of Hawaii. She came highly recommended by our wedding planner and didn't disappoint. She contacted us prior to us arriving in Hawaii to get a feel for our "style" and specific wants regarding our photos. She was very sweet and easy to work with and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. We just received our "sneak peek" regarding our photos and LOVE them! Can't wait to see the rest! I would highly recommend Karen if you are planning a destination wedding!

I am also a photographer in Kona, and chose Karen Loudon to shoot my engagement photos because her work is always beautiful and unique. I am completely comfortable being around Karen and trust her every move as a photographer. She will be my "family photographer" as I have big plans for her to shoot our engagement, wedding, boudoir, future pregnancy, infant and family portraits! I highly recommend her and her professional talent, I could not be more happy with the photos she produced!

Karen was wonderful! I was very nervous since we did a destination wedding and didn't meet her until right before the wedding. She was so helpful and made me feel very comfortable. We were blown away by the sneak peak photos we received from her. My husband didn't want to spend the money to get a photographer but is now saying it was so worth the money. My friends are amazed by the photos they've seen. I highly recommend her. You won't regret it. Thank you so much Karen!

Karen was amazing!!! She was calm and patient with my crazy family. My wedding party and I were running so late trying to get me into hair and makeup and she took it upon herself to help me get my dress ready for pictures, finding the shoes and invitation, etc. She went above and beyond!!!! She captured each priceless moment and the pictures were so elegant and beautiful. She incorporated everything I asked her to in the questionnaire. Everyone loved working with her! Having her take our pictures was definitely one of the highlights of the night!

I had my destination wedding in July 2013. I picked Karen Loudon for photography based on her style and positive reviews on Wedding Wire. Karen was professional and so easy to work with. I loved how knowledgeable Karen was about the island. Karen sent my "first look" pictures within just a few days of my wedding and the other 500+ pictures in a few weeks. I loved EVERY SINGLE picture! Karen captured so many beautiful moments with my family and loved ones. Thank you so very much. I would strongly recommend working with Karen for any of your photography needs.

I booked Karen to do my wedding photography this coming December, as well as boudoir session to surprise my groom on our wedding day. I just had my boudoir shoot this past weekend and i was very apprehensive and nervous. Karen made me feel at ease and comfortable, she was friendly, kind and easy going, she definitely knows what she is doing and strives to get the perfect angle and lighting to create the perfect shot. She made me feel confident and helped me to really enjoy the experience. By the time the shoot was done I was wishing it didn't have to end! I can't wait to see what she has in store for our wedding in December! I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants quality photos and an enjoyable experience with someone who is professional and fun at the same time!

I highly recommend Karen for photographing weddings! Karen photographed my intimate wedding on the Big Island and did an amazing job. Not only are her pictures gorgeous, but she was also very easy to work with. My husband and I felt very comfortable around her, and that allowed us to make some very special, goofy and intimate photos throughout the session. We were extremely satisfied with her services.

After seeing her photos on her website, I called Karen and left her a message. I wanted her to photograph my wedding on Hapuna Beach.

She returned my call promptly and was extremely friendly and helpful over the phone, even making suggestions on timing and locations for the photo shoot.

Once in Hawaii we changed our plans and decided to get married on a different beach. Karen was more than happy to accommodate our request.

I found her very friendly and easy to work with. She made me feel comfortable enough to just be myself in front of the camera.

I can't wait to see all the beautiful photos she took!

I booked Karen for our engagement photos while we were on vacation in Hawaii. My fiance had proposed just a few weeks before that so the experience of booking wedding vendors was all new. Karen had the perfect plan for us to get all the engagement "backdrops" we had wished for.

I was self conscious of my curvy figure and Karen had little pointers for me to pose in a more flattering way. When I got the sneak peak photos I looked two sizes smaller in all the photos!! Just what all girls want :)

My fiance is shy and his comments after the session were how comfortable he felt, that Karen was really friendly and she made the experience enjoyable. Just what you want for the man of your dreams!

The beauty Karen captures in the photos is unexplainable. Breathtaking and real. I am so excited to have every photo for memories that will last forever! If you are having your wedding or engagement in Hawaii Karen is your dream photographer!

Karen was a joy to work with and really made my wedding day that much more special. I am so happy to have stumbled upon her site. Her pictures are gorgeous and to make it even better her prices are reasonable. Karen was there to answer all my questions. She was early to arrive at my wedding and even stayed late to catch that perfect shot. My sneak peak shots are to die for and I cant wait to see the rest of the pictures. I loved working with Karen so much we plan on contacting her the next time we are in Hawaii to take family pictures.

I got in contact with Karen in September when my fiance and I had decided we were going to do a destination wedding for 12/12/12! Karen was responsive and helped us decide on a package that would fit our needs and though we had been communicating primarily via email as we were on the mainland, I felt pretty confident that we'd made a great decision having Karen as our photographer.

The day of our wedding Karen and her assistant Morgan were prompt and were very accommodating to the wedding coordinator's listed schedule! Thankfully it was just us, the bride and groom at this event as we had planned a surprise wedding while we were on vacation! Being usually insecure with photos and super self-conscious of myself, I've always been pretty awkward and uncomfortable taking photos...but Karen in her sweet and calm voice directed me to do exactly what she wanted....WE LOVED how she really thought things out and how she wanted to place us and pose and Morgan really helped ease my tension by making me laugh.

From our getting ready photos to the actual ceremony and sunset photos, they really made us feel like the day was about the two of us...most of the time I didn't even notice they were there as Karen documented one of the most important days in our lives...I would consider that as a compliment because I've heard many stories of demanding/pushy photographers making your day miserable! BUT KAREN was the complete opposite!! Just simply AMAZING and super easy to work with! We had sooo much FUN and a truly wonderful experience with her. IF you are even considering a photographer you should start and end with Karen Loudon!

My Husband and I choose Karen as our wedding photographer, and would 10000 times over! Karen was willing to take time to meet with us prior to the wedding when we were back for a visit (we are from the mainland), and was right on top of any requests and communications. Even on the crazy day of, Karen was cool, calm, and collected, which helped all of us to relax. Her photos speak for themselves...she has an eye for beauty, and really knows how to capture Hawaii. We LOVE the final product of photos, and what's even better is her philosophy to give access to all of the photos she edits. They are something we will truly cherish for our whole lives! We ended up with almost 1000 photos for our 5-hour time with Karen. Absolutely amazing. We hope to use Karen in the future as our lives continue on together and our family grows.

Book with Karen for all of your Big Island photo needs. You won't be disappointed!

Karen is awesome! We feel like the photos she took of our wedding not only captured the moment, but the spirit of us and our relationship. Even though it was a destination event and we didn't have much time beforehand to get to know each other, she made every effort to find out about us, understand the details of our wedding, and make us feel comfortable with the process. She was super friendly, accommodating, and clearly listened to our preferences (if you like drama let her know and she can do it - if you like natural/casual, she's great at that, too). I can confidently recommend Karen to friends, family and any bride!

When we first got in touch with Karen, we knew right away that we were going to have a positive experience. She was responsive, very accommodating of our needs and requests, and made the entire process very smooth-sailing. This was a big thumbs up for us because the first photographer we tried to work with was just difficult.

This was our first time in front of a professional photographer, so we weren't quite sure how to pose for our wedding photos. At the same time, we didn't want a photographer who demanded certain poses or certain shots. Karen was open to our suggestions and she also gave us suggestions. We really appreciated her honesty as well in terms of what would make a good photo. We haven't gotten all the wedding photos yet but Karen did upload several sneak peek photos the day after, and we fell in love with them. What amazing talent Karen has! There were some photos that we didn't even know she took!

I would highly recommend Karen in a heartbeat. I know there are many photographers in the area to choose from, so if you are trying to choose who to go with, definitely go with Karen.

We loved the entire experience with Karen! She put us at ease and had great ideas to bring out our natural behaviors; she made us a lot less camera shy. Karen is one of those awesome down to earth people that you feel you somehow already know. She was patient with some of the rainy weather we had and spent extra time to ensure we got a suburb variety of shoots. I loved the sneak peak photos so much I can't wait to see the rest. I am so grateful Karen was our wedding photographer!!! She's truly a creative artist that is talented and gifted at capturing your story in photos that are more beautiful than I could have imagined. I can't wait to start a family so I can come back to Hawaii to have Karen do our family portraits. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for capturing the most beautiful day of our lives in photos we will cherish for eternity.

Karen and her assistant are fantastic! We live in Texas and had planned a destination wedding in Kona. We were worried about finding a good, reliable photographer to capture our special day. We found exactly that in Karen! She communicated with us regularly before the wedding to meet all of our requests and needs. The day of the wedding she and her assistant helped calm my nerves by getting me to laugh and have fun taking photos before the ceremony. She has great ideas for posing to ensure a spectacular picture. I love her creativity and her willingness to work with our ideas. She had a sampling of the photos available the day after the wedding. I wish she lived in Texas so we could use her for all our photography needs! Thank you Karen!

I couldn't imagine a better photography experience at our wedding than what we had with Karen Loudon. Karen was very easy to work with and made our wedding day all that more comfortable. She took the time to listen to our desires and work within our budget means.

We were initially drawn to Karen because of her pricing options and our small budget. That said, she still showed up early and stayed late, taking an enormous amount of high quality photos. We are also pleased to have an original copy of the photos for ourselves, a feature few other photographers will offer.

We could not be more happy with Karen's photography work for our wedding. If you need a photographer for any occasion on the Big Island, do yourself a favor and call Karen!

I can't begin to explain how AMAZING Karen is. Her work is unbelievable and she captures the most amazing moments with exceptional light and vibrant colors. Everyone is in love with our wedding pictures. We also did a "Trash the Dress" Session a few days after our wedding. I had an expensive ball gown and I got fully in the water, and my dress is totally fine :). Just a little sand which comes out with a dry clean. I can't express how happy we are with Karen and her professionalism with her humble and very sweet personality. Very easy to work with her. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. The only thing that I'm bummed about is that I can't use her for every event unless I fly her to LA :/

We picked Karen after reviewing her website and blog and after getting quotes from karen and a few others. We liked her photos the best when reviewing the websites of several kona photographers....and her prices were reasonable; she also has great reviews. I really liked the fact that her prices were on her website....most are not. And she is available for a one hour session while some are not. And she provides the pics on CD. We asked the best time of day for pics and she recommended 5:45 for the best light (she was right)! She was very prompt in email replies to get our date booked in advance. She was on time and very nice / very professional....she asked if we had anything in mind and also offered some great suggestions as we did not have many specific shots in mind. She offered to stay a couple extra minutes to get some final champagne shots after we finished up outside....so great of her to do. I actually want to pay her more than the agreed on amount as she was willing to go a little extra for us. We received several sneak peak pictures secured online the very next day. The pictures are great - exactly what we envisioned! I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures and especially some of the fun shots she took (husband spinning me around, etc)! I would definitely recommend Karen...... Hurry, book now!

We picked Karen after reviewing her website and blog and after getting quotes from karen and a few others. We liked her photos the best when reviewing the websites of several kona photographers....and her prices were reasonable; she also has great reviews. I really liked the fact that her prices were on her website....most are not. And she is available for a one hour session while some are not. And she provides the pics on CD. We asked the best time of day for pics and she recommended 5:45 for the best light (she was right)! She was very prompt in email replies to get our date booked in advance. She was on time and very nice / very professional....she asked if we had anything in mind and also offered some great suggestions as we did not have many specific shots in mind.

Karen was extremely easy and fun to work with. She helped us loosen up in front of the camera and we ended up really enjoyed the experience. She got so many wonderful pictures, and was so unobtrusive that most of the time I didn't even notice that she was taking my picture! She captured every moment of our wedding perfectly, and managed to get some really good pictures of everybody at the wedding.

The pictures are beautiful, she responded quickly to e-mails and phone messages, and her costs are very low in relation to other Big Island photographers. I'd highly recommend Karen for any event!

We were fortunate to find Karen to photograph our photos for our wedding in Kona. She was absolutely perfect! We were very nervous on our wedding day and Karen was very calm and non-intrusive. She made us both feel comfortable and her suggestions for pictures really paid off. We wanted an old fashioned feel at our wedding and the pictures really convey that. We pulled it off- in large part thanks to Karen!
We love the pictures. Her prices are the best I found, she was very generous with her time (she was with us for way over the agreed upon one hour), prompt (she beat us and the officiant!), and just very easy to be around. She was very professional and intuitive in her craft. Thank you Karen for the best pictures ever. We absolutely adore what you did! Karen Loudon takes BEAUTIFUL and UNIQUE pictures geared towards those she is photographing. I would wholeheartedly recommend Karen Loudon for pictures.

I live near Syracuse NY. I came to Hawaii to renew my wedding vows, even though, we were married on May 6, 2011. My original photos from that day are a reminder of a tragic event that happened 4 hours before my wedding...my mother, passed away unexpectedly. I needed some time to heal and came to Hawaii to do that. I found Karen online and was stunned by her pictures! She is truely extremely gifted and talented. She will make you feel at ease and you will be pleasantly suprised with the finished product. I highly recommend Karen. When we are back for our 10th wedding anniversary, we will be callling Karen! She is just WOW!

Karen was the photographer at our wedding and honestly we were NOT let down. She did and amazing job capturing our big day and giving us photographs that take our breath away. Our experience working with her was awesome, she got back to us via email promptly, answered any questions we had, and gave us excellent tips on places to pose and how to pose. Our guest have enjoyed the photos as well and have commented to us on how Karen did a great job capturing our big wedding traditions at our reception.
Karen also took our "Trash the Dress" pictures and I must honestly say that if you are interested in trashing your dress then Karen is who you should go to. She has the perfect location and really lets you be yourself.

Karen, we thank you dearly for the breathtaking images of our big day; there are too many great ones too choose from for our living room :) You Rock!

Karen was the photographer for our destination wedding in Kailua-Kona Hawaii on Sept 2-3, 2011. I am so happy we found her because she did an amazing job and we love our pictures. People have told us that the pictures should be in contests or magazines and I agree, I can't even believe they are our wedding pictures. It is a bit scary when you book vendors for a destination wedding based on what you find online but in this case we couldn't have been luckier or happier with our photographer Karen. Not only were the pictures amazing but she offers really competitive pricing and I feel we got way more than we could have hoped for. Thanks Karen for capturing our beautiful wedding in Hawaii!! Mahalo!

I can't say enough good things about Karen! She was helpful and responsive months before Big Day. The pictures came out AMAZING! Everyone in the wedding and the family love them! I live in Washington and I thought hiring someone in Hawaii would be impossible, It was isn't! I looked at everyone's web sites and priced them out, Karen was the best choice we could have made. Import fact-You get the rights to your pictures so you don't have to keep ordering and paying long after the wedding is over. We had Karen do some black and white getting up shots, they came out so beautiful, the getting ready shots and the wedding and all the family and friend shots, we have over 1,200 pictures in 8 hours!! and they are all amazing! We'll have to go back to Kona to do all our family shots! Darn! :D

It is one year since our wedding and I am just as thrilled today to have worked with Karen as I was on my wedding day. Karen is a consummate professional and had a schedule and shot list for us. We did our photos before our wedding, since we had a sunset wedding and in the midst of setting up and getting ready we did our photo shoot. Karen was completely amazing and kept us all on task. And not only that, she kept us relaxed and at ease. She also photographed the feel and energy of our reception which matches my memory of that night perfectly. And she captured moments that I will treasure forever. Our photos are incredible and so beautiful. I would recommend Karen to any couple wanting amazing memories of their wedding day. Thank you Karen! <3 <3 <3

Karen worked closely with us to develop a theme for our wedding. We decided on a "Midsummer Night's Dream" and tailored our decor, clothing and lighting to match it. The result was exquisite! Karen staged a magical set of an antique chandelier and enchanted table and chairs to shoot some truly unique photos of my wife and I (with some shots with the best man and maid of honor). Our ceremony, through Karen's effectively lit lens, looked as if we were transported to heaven. That is what Karen does the best actually, she gets a sense of what your "heavenly" wedding would be and creates a set of images which captures you in this heaven. Much mahalo!

My family and I were delighted with Karen. She took the time to talk with us before the ceremony and set up shooting locations. She was very flexible and willing to work with our preferences and ideas about the photography.
My wedding was on a budget, and I wasn't originally planning on hiring a photographer to save money. I'm SO GLAD I changed my mind! Karen offers excellent value for the quality of the photography and she includes full rights to the photos in her price. I HIGHLY recommend her for weddings or for any occasion when you want a very talented and professional photographer.

I can't thank you enough for your loving gift. It was a beautiful and gentle wedding, and you captured it all. I love the pictures they are wonderful. I am grateful to who you are as a photographer as well. You were always calm, even when we had to change the venue the day before. You went the extra mile to visit the new venue and check out the surroundings, resulting in some great pictures. You were always calm, in a hectic situation, and I was always met with a smile when I looked up to see you. Most of the time I was unaware of you as you worked. I would, and already have, recommended you to others. You are the greatest!
