The photo that Kara captured of my father and I walking down the aisle and once we got to the end, my father pulled me, close whispered he loved me in my ear and kissed me on my cheek. Kara captured a photo of him and I looking into each other's eyes and the fact that my dad passed away shortly after and that I have this beautiful photo to remind me of our relationship is amazing beyond words.
Kara was never in the way of anything. She definitely knows what she is doing and knows how to handle herself. I was surprised at how many fun candid pictures we received because you never noticed her. She captured so much of the "fun" and the party that was going on all night. All of our photos are more amazing then I could have ever hoped for.
We received all day coverage, second photographer, $500 print credit and a brag book. After the honeymoon was over we went back and purchased the negatives and an album which were both well worth it.
We adored Kara from the start and new she would get along great with all the family and friends she would work with on our big day. She is so laid back and carefree and it made all of us who are nervous to get our picture taken completely comfortable. She has a gift!

What was your favorite wedding photo? My favorite wedding photos is one that she caught in between portraits. While we were moving the bridal party out of the way to bring in the family for photos, Mike turned to me and kissed me on my forehead. Kara is so in tune with what is going on around her and she captured the moment between the two of us beautifully.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? We forgot that Kara was even there once the day got started. She does an amazing job blending in. Her candids were amazing and that is why we hired her. No one likes to pose for the camera and have to smile because not everyone feels comfortable. Instead of doing that with our guests, she photographed them laughing, talking and dancing. Such a better way! Her action shots are fabulous - my bouquet toss picture is absolutely classic and her portraits are perfection. I had no idea we would have so many pictures of the two of us to choose from.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? Even though we went a little over budget to get Kara and everything we wanted, it was well worth it. Knowing the work that she put into it and the pictures we walked away with, I would have spent thousands more. We received an engagement session, guest book album, all day coverage, two photographers, complete digital negatives, bride and groom album as well as two parent brag albums.
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? My mom has been telling everyone about Kara! My family fell in love with her and she made everyone laugh the entire day which put everyone at ease. Mike and I felt like we could be ourselves - that we could have private intimate moments and not feel awkward. She was so patient with family and friends who wanted certain photos. And her laid back personality and sense of humor totally won us over. She felt like family the entire day!
