Kari Kochar is an amazing photograher, a true artist capturing the personality and the feel of the event she is covering. Kari photographed my daughter's wedding on 7/28/12. She is a true professional. She has a very calm demeanor even while things are a little "crazy" around her. She has a great eye for detail. Kari is very flexible while maintaining a "photograhic schedule". Her pricing is very reasonable for the service you receive, with many options and ability to add as needed. We could not be happier with the service we received. Needless to say her photographs mirror her artistic eye and attention to detail. With so many photographers, with a huge range of packages, choosing a photographer can be overwhelming. We booked Kari the same day we met with her. We could not be happier with our decision!!!

We had great time having Kari as our photographer. She's very professional and her work is beautiful. She is really easy to work with, we felt really comfortable getting our photos taken by her. We are those people who don't really feel comfortable getting our photos taken, but Kari and her other photographer made it feel easy and fun.
We got our photos only few weeks after our wedding and they were wonderful. We wish we had the time to get an engagement photo with her, but since we don't live in LA area, it is hard so we didn't get one. I would recommend people to get it done with the photographer you are hiring for your wedding day, that way she knows what angle looks good on you and what your personality's like. Kari did a great job even without the engagement session with us. I can only imagine it would've been more beautiful if we have had an engagement session.

Kari Kochar shot our wedding in April, 2011 and also did an engagement shoot for us.

I am beyond happy with both her service, her personality, and of course the photos! My fiance and I both attended film school and thus were extremely picky in regards to the quality of the photos. Kari has an amazing gift for composition and especially *lighting.* On showing my hair/make up artist the photos, they remarked that many of the portraits looked like they had been taken out of a high fashion magazine.

It was very important to me to have nice photos as I am not normally photogenic and wanted to have something I could show my grandchildren some day and with Kari I definitely got what I wanted. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer, wedding or otherwise.

Kari is extremely fun and easy to work with. She is a true artist, trained professionally in photography. Kari is organized and very thorough. For a photographer with her level of expertise she is very modest and down to earth. She has an ability to focus on so many aspects of getting great shots including lighting and settings. My family and friends loved her too. My family said they loved the way she was honest and helped to coach us to relax and not look so nervous and tense! Throughout the night I felt like I did not even see Kari, then sure enough when I saw the pictures I was amazed at how she caught every important moment without being obtrusive. We are huge fans of Kari and will continue to use her for other occasions as well!

Kari has a great eye for composition and color. Not only does she get the shot, she gets interesting shots. She does a great job of working with you to see where she can fit in with your schedule. We looked at many photographers and none compared to Kari!

Kari was wonderful to work with. She provided us with a template for requesting specific photographs which was very helpful. She took pictures so unobtrusively that I wasn't even aware they were being taken. The pictures themselves are so beautiful, luminous and clear. The black and white pictures, especially the candids, have a photo-journalistic quality. The posed pictures are suited to publication in a magazine - in fact, that's the comment most people have made about them! Kari herself is charming, fun - and very focused. All in all, we consider these pictures to be money well spent in budgeting our wedding. I'm delighted.

Kari was wonderful to work with. She is very professional and responsive throughout the process. She let us customize the package, and while she was on the higher end of photographers we considered, we went with her because we preferred her very clean, natural looking photography (many of the cheaper ones we considered highly photo-shopped or stylized thier photos).

Kari's choice of assistant was also very good, and we enjoyed working with both of them on the day. I was particularly impressed with Kari's awareness of lighting situations. She would move us just of a little bit this way or that to improve the light, and the photos show it --- she is really good at portraiture.

If you like a clean, natural photography style, she's an excellent choice!
