She made our first couple shoot effortless.

Jake + Claire

Kara was absolutely amazing!! My boyfriend and I did our very first couple shoot and she made it so effortless. We had so much fun that he is already wanting to do another. So grateful that she woke up so early to meet us at sunrise at such an amazing spot. 

We are so lucky to have you capture all of our special moments!!!!!!

Sorry it took me all of 10 minutes to respond to these sneak peeks, I was too busy gushing over them to everyone. But seriously, I’m already so obsessed?!?!?! I truly cannot wait to see everything else. You are amazing and we are so lucky to have you capture all of our special moments!!!!!

You made me feel so comfortable
which NEVER happens.

Oh my gosh I love our photos!!! We had a blast too. Garrett even said as we were going home “she’s really good at her job.” And he had fun which is always a plus! You made me feel so comfortable which NEVER happens.

Kara is FUN. I gained a friend when I thought I was just getting a photographer.

Kara is FUN. She'll make you feel comfortable, she'll help you feel non-awkward, and she's really easy to talk to as a person! We wanted a photo session in a beautiful place with someone who made us feel comfortable, so we wouldn't feel like we were doing something significant with a stranger tagging along. It felt more like a group date, and that was perfect. Kara's just great :) And I'm glad I gained a friend when I thought I was just getting a photographer.
