If you love good chocolate, urban living, family get togethers, organic food, and the color yellow we may just be best friends and not know it yet! My goal as a wedding photographer is to develop a connection with my amazing clients before your big day so that when I show up to your wedding I'm not a stranger but a friend. This is why I have chosen to be a boutique wedding photographer. Meaning I take limited bookings per year in order to focus on the clients I have and leave time for all of my passions in life. (Including my handsome husband and two beautiful girls.) I'd love to chat with you and see if we're meant to be.

Please visit my website! You can also contact me for more information and to set up a meeting!

Love,

tl;dr I highly recommend Karisa Joy Photography. She is a pleasure to work with and brings a romantic and fun air to your pictures.

Personality: I had not prioritized personality when choosing a photographer but quickly found out during our engagement session that it's very important! I was initially unhappy because the day we choose for our engagement pictures was cold and cloudy but with Karisa's upbeat attitude, I was fine just a few minutes into the photo shoot. Karisa energizes you through encouragement and just plain happiness when you're tired and had a full day of picture taking.

Style: We loved her style especially because that there was no strange "artsy" special effects. We wanted soft, romantic, fun and honest (why yes, I do have some wrinkles when I smile and that's ok). Even though it's been months after we sent out the album, our guests are still commenting how great the pictures turned out.

Business: The payment, contract, picture gallery and album review was all online which was so convenient! She was always prompt in responding to our questions and even checked in with us to make sure that we were on time to make key decisions.

Pictures: We got a preview of our pictures less than two weeks after our wedding. The entire online picture gallery was done less than a month later. It was sooo convenient to send a link to our guests (and others who couldn't make it) and have them download the pictures they wanted. Other guests wished that their wedding photographer had given them such good coverage of the event.

Karisa is an amazing photographer who provides outstanding service! She made our day so beautiful and special. She had some beautiful little surprises for us. Within hours of our wedding we saw a sneak peek of pictures and we cannot wait to see the rest! The day went by so fast, but we will relive beautiful memories through the gorgeous pictures Karisa took. PS: She also did a fabulous engagement shoot for us!!

Karisa was my photographer for my engagement photos and for my wedding. She traveled all the way from MN to AZ for me. For the engagement session, we were able to go to several locations and ended up with about 200 amazing photos, (which, by the way, were all ready within just days, sooner than we had anticipated). Also, these locations were places that Karisa had never visited before, but the photos came out as if she had shot there a hundred times before and knew exactly what would look just right. I have the rights to all the photos, which is awesome, so I don't have to pick and choose which ones I like...I just get them all! We received nothing but positive comments on our engagement photos, which solidified the fact that I wanted to use Karisa as my wedding photographer, too.
For our wedding, Karisa brought a second shooter with her and we received over 800 photos, once again, all ours to decide what we want to do with them. She listened to us and made lists of exactly what photos we wanted and who we really wanted pictures of and what our must-have poses were. The photos came out beautiful (again, sooner than expected - Karisa is a hard worker) and our friends and family are once again gushing over how amazing the photos look. I was truly blessed to have a talented photographer, as the photograph was truly one of the most important elements of the wedding to me.
Karisa is a lot of fun and you can tell that she loves her job, which definitely adds to the comfort level I felt with her. I don't think I've ever had any other photographer make so many positive comments while taking my photos. She makes you feel like a model! Being her subject is just a pleasant experience all around. She also sent my husband and I several gifts and notes throughout the process, which says a lot about her kindness and that she doesn't see her clients just as clients, but friends. I completely trusted her to take care of me on my big day, which she did a hundred times over.

My hubby and I went to Karisa for anniversary photos, she was AMAZING! She truly wanted us to have a great time; our photo session felt like a date in itself, so great! If I could go back in time and hire Karisa as my wedding photographer, I'd do so in a heartbeat without a second thought. Any bride would be lucky to work with Karisa, she is kind, genuine and thoughtful. Not only does she care about your photos, she cares about you as a person and your relationship.
