Being from Brazil, my life has overflowed with the beauty of nature, and the joys of life, laughter and love.
There were so many special moments shared with family and friends, like red wine picnic dinners under the stars
on a warm summer's night, Sunday brunches on the beach (everyone dressed in white),
hiking to never heard of villages and meeting new people. In everything I saw beauty and magic.
I bought a camera, studied photography, lighting and composition,
and began capturing all the moments I saw before me. The images, everlasting.
I love color. black and white. cross processing and even infrared I have learned has its place.
As my experience grew, so did my camera collection.
I also love shooting with a Hasselblad and 4x5.
What I love most about shooting and what I live to capture, are those genuine and pure,
heartfelt and happiest of moments with family and friends,
which even if we are lucky, are experienced only once in a lifetime.
That is why I shoot weddings. In all my travels, no matter where I am in the world.
I have never captured anything,
anywhere that is more beautiful than the love I see at a wedding.

To me every bride is a princess. Every groom is a prince.
Every wedding a fairy tale. Read less

Karina shot our engagement photos and wedding photos. Both came out so stunning. We ended up using one of our engagement photos on our wedding invitations. Our wedding venue (Malibou Lake Mountain Club) was naturally beautiful, but Karina's eye for lighting and perfect composition really made everything about our photos magical. I've received nothing but compliments on our portraits and some of our guests that have friends that are getting married are already asking me for her information so they can pass it along. On the days leading up to the wedding Karina will help you so much as far as deciding your timeline and what photos you want taken. On the day of her and her assistant will keep your bridal party in line, smiling, and all the while she's snapping photos that will later stun you. We had 6 groomsmen, 2 best men, 6 bridesmaids, 2 matron of honors, 3 Jr. Bridesmaids, and a flower girl...not to mention our parents and 2 officiants...she took it all in stride and captured the day beautifully. I should mention that Karina also shot my brother's wedding, so this is now the second time that she has just blown our family away. We feel so blessed to have had the special day we had and extra so because our photographer captured the day so perfectly and now we'll have these photos to treasure forever. Thank you Karina!!

Karina is a wonderful photographer! I am so glad she took photos of our wedding day. She is extremely professional yet very warm. I feel like I gained a friend working with her. To top it off, her work is amazing! It was good lighting, creative angles, understands the venue & couple. It was so hard for me to choose photos either to print in the album or print on a canvas for the easel. Thank you Karina for a job well done!!!!

Karina was one of the most professional persons I dealt with the entire wedding process. From the first meeting, she understood me and my husband very well. My husband hates having his photo taken, posing etc, and she worked with us to get the most natural looking photos!
I feel that when you're getting married, there is so much going on, you can't possibly take it all in, but from the photos after the wedding, I truly was able to capture what my wedding was like!! Karina made it something I'll look back on forever in the most picturesque way!
And she's ADORABLE!!! She's there for YOU on your day!

My husband and I loved working with Karina! She is just loving and so caring and is very passionate about her work. Our Wedding truly became magical once she began her magic and captured every loving moment, which is part of our memories. Karina is the best at capturing moments that make you sigh, we are beyond satisfied with her and her work. Fascinating! We could have not asked for a better wedding photographer.

My sister and I have both used her for our weddings and we were more than pleased. Karina was such a pleasure to work with. She always kept in contact with me and was so easy to talk to and get a hold of--what a relief. The photographer was one thing I did not want to stress out about on my special day, and with Karina you don't have to. Her work is fabulous-she REALLY knows her stuff (just look at her photos). When you see her photos your jaw drops!! Karina made my day so smooth and worry-free. THANKS KARINA!

Karina Pires did an amazing job shooting our wedding. She arrived early and new exactly what pictures to take that I would never dream of. Her timing was perfect as she knew how much time for each photo shoot. It was a "winter wedding" so it got dark early but that was not an issue. The lighting for the outside photos was breath taking. All of our pictures turned out great and we look through them often.
Karina not only took photos of our wedding but she also did our engagement photos, pictures of our 1st born, our daughter's baptism, and then 1st birthday. We trust her completely as we know that each picture will turn out great. Karina truly cares about her work and it shows in her product. We consistently recommend her to our friends and family.

She was very professional and all of the pictures were beautiful. We didn't have a lot of time for pictures and she was efficient and directed us all well with each shot. The only negative thing I can say is that I didn't really shop around and she is a little pricey compared to other photographers.

I cannot say enough about Karina Pires. She photographed our wedding at the Hotel Bel Air and she was amazing. She was such a professional and put everyone at ease not to mention her work was impeccable. I did not use a wedding coordinator and was a little concerned on how I would juggle all the elements on that day but Karina's professionalism and pure love for her job put me at ease right away. She always had a smile on her face and just blended right in to the party. I even had some wedding guests compliment me on how respectful and easy going and non intrusive she was when photographing the event. I recommend her highly!
