Hello, my name is Karen and I'm a photographer, artist and adventurer. I grew up in Japan (in the city and by the sea), occasionally returning to my state-side home deep in the north Georgia woods. I now split my time between Missouri and New York (but I'd love to hear from you no matter where you are!)

I love exploring our world and photographing people in love.  Organic, artful photography for people who wear their heart on their sleeve. 

In my spare time, I enjoy art & design, dinner parties with friends, flea and farmer's markets, exploring and adventuring always.

It's so nice to meet you.

Frequently Asked Questions

-I'm planning a destination wedding. Do you travel?

Yes! I've traveled from Brooklyn to Santa Fe to Mexico to Paris. I love it when another adventure comes my way! I usually ask for airfare, a hotel room for 2 nights and transportation, and work hard to keep travel costs as low as possible.

For weddings outside of New York City limits, I have a travel fee of $150/day, and possibly accommodation if it's too late to return to the city that evening.

-How do we book you? 

Send me a note! To reserve a date, I ask for a signed contract and a 50% retainer fee. (The remainder is due within 2 weeks of the wedding day.)

-How many photos will we get? 

You'll end up with roughly 60-80 images per hour of coverage.



-What about prints?

I include full printing rights for personal sharing and use in all my packages, so you're free to make prints on your own. For photo books, I really recommend Artifact Uprising and Pinhole Press. 

-I can't wait to see the photos! When do I get them??

What I do is truly a labor of love, and I take pride in personally editing every photo. Your photographs can be expected within 6-8 weeks.

-Do you have insurance?

Yes I do!

-What camera do you shoot with? Do you bring back-up gear?

A Canon 5d mark ii + a long list of prime lenses. I always always bring back up gear! And back up to my back up. :)
