Wedding & Engagement Photographer | Taco Lover | Dog Mom

I used to believe in a fairy tale love story until I learned that real life love is so much better! It's messy, unpredictable and so beautiful. Capturing these amazing love stories are what drives my passion in telling your unique story so you can share this monumental moment for generations to come.

Hi, I am Kara


I'm a West Virginia & destination wedding photographer. I love all things Charleston, Sc : all the architecture, Spanish Moss and Angel Oaks make my heart flutter!

My pups are my sweet babies. I have a 6-year-old spunky chiweenie, Bentli, who is obsessed with tennis balls and a 12.5-year-old princess pound puppy, Roxie, who is enjoying her days laying in the sun and barking at all the things that go on outside the window! I love diet Canada Dry Gingerale or Diet Coke, Tacos and Gluten Free Brownies.

My first real camera was put in my hands when I was 16. For years I dabbled and then, I decided to give it a try! I am so thankful for the little “God sitings” that pushed me to continue this dream! Without His love & grace that He has shown me over, I would never have jumped nor would I be able to navigate this messy thing called life!

I am so excited to meet you!



For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
— JEREMIAH 29:11
