She goes above and beyond!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

the sunset photos she did were definitely the best. At the time I was like "oh lord more photos?" but Karen really made it a point to get the photos she needed and she KNEW that we would want later on. She was so right and we love them!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

She got great candid photos which to me are sometimes more special than those we posed for. We often times didn't even realize she was there taking pictures. She never disrupted the day at all =)

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Two photographers, engagement pictures and I really loved how we were able to get all the photos digitally so we could do what ever we wanted with them. She also provided a link to them online so that we could email that to family and friends and they could order prints directly from her website. This was such a cool feature and helped us save time a money with getting pictures to the family

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

She is very patient. We had one photo we wanted with the entire family, both sides! It was hectic trying to get everyone together for the picture, get them to take their sunglasses off and then she had the challenge to get everyone with their eyes open! The picture was perfect and I am so glad we got it. It was almost symbolic to us of our two families coming together after that day, we were becoming one big family and that photo will always remind me of that.

Hot Texas Wedding

What was your favorite wedding photo?

My favorite pics are the dock shots, the half a million family pics and the shots Karen got of the butterflies we released

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Karen went FAR above and beyond - flying across the country to do our wedding photos when we relocated the whole event from California to Texas 4 months before the big day. We couldn't be happier with the photos, and she was awesome to work with before, during and after the event. I am happy to highly recommend Karen!!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

All of the photos were included in digital format. Karen had everything edited and back to us very quickly. She did a great job of staying in touch and making sure we were happy every step of the way

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Karen and Justin fit right in with our guests and worked tirelessly in the incredible heat and humidity to get every shot on our list

SO great!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

There are so many! But there are a few fantastic ones from our first look that capture how excited we were to see eachother. I also make a lot of funny faces, and Karen managed to capture these in an attractive way, which is a true feat!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Very unobtrusive. I barely knew she was there (but obviously she was because there are pictures of everything!)

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We had Karen and another lovely photographer at the wedding. Karen also threw in a engagement session for us. Albums are extra, but we're splurging because we like the photos so much!

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Absolutely!

Bride

What was your favorite wedding photo?

One of our favorite pictures (and there are many) was taken during our first look. My husband is in the foreground and in the background you see my emotional reaction (yes there were tears). The perspective was amazing and our emotions were caught in the picture.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

I would have to say that I was so consumed in the day that most of the time I forgot she was there. She gave us direction but most of the time just captured us consumed with one another.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Our session included four hours, a second photographer and digital files.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

I am usually jot a picture person, but on my wedding day I was made to feel so special. She gave not only me and my husband but our families direction in the most professional way. Many family members commented later that she was a nice person and very professional.

Amazing!!!!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

My favorite photo was captured with all of our bridesmaids and groomsmen mixed together in a park, posing how we wanted. She allowed ourselves to shine through. The colors were fantastic! We were all very comfortable, and had so much fun shooting that!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Great with real vibrant colors, great at finding locations to shoot, capturing real moments, silhouettes,

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Two photographers, Engagement Pics, lots of love, and care!!!

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

My husband and I are a very young couple, and have been to about 3-4 weddings in our lifetime. When it came time for our wedding, we were excited, but had no clue what we were doing. We met up, and immediately loved her! In our first meeting she really focused on her style of photography, seeing if that was a good match for us. Not only did she just show/talk about her work, and her style she wanted to spend some time getting to know us. She was very personable in that way. She also acted as a wedding planner. She helped us to set up a timeline for our wedding, she talked about typical wedding traditions and incorporated what we wanted. The fact that she took her time to not only do her job, but to help us really put our whole wedding together was amazing! truly made our day so much easier and enjoyable!
Do yourself a favor and hire Karen D Photography for all of your special events. She is extremely personable, fun, professional, affordable, and amazing at what she does. She always gets back to you in a timely manner, and even thought her photo page on Facebook is always flowing with new pictures, her service is never reflective of how busy she is. She treats you as you are the only thing that matters at that moment, and makes taking picture into wonderful experience! She made us feel very comfortable in expressing ourselves through her lens. On our wedding day, Karen and Justin did such a wonderful job at capturing our special day and making it look flawless! They captured all of the essence of fun, love, and lifelong memories that went into our day.

Big Thanks to Karen!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

Karen cought us walking down the aisle after the ceremony with my wife's arm up in the air with her bouquet in hand with my high-fiving one of our guests. She captured the joy of the moment--a beautiful shot.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

I dont think I ever noticed Karen and her team aside from the times I asked her to get specific shots. She totally melted into the background and was still able to catch all of the moments I hoped she would.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Two photographers and an engagement photo session and video slideshow of select photos. She offered all of her other services as well (DVD, photo book, individual prints).

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Totally and completely comfortable--she was upbeat, energetic, positive and fun to be around.

A fun, friendly and talented photographer!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

All of the pictures of our ceremony came out better than we could have imagined!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

During the ceremony, Karen and her partner were so quick and quiet we barely knew she was there, yet she captured the ceremony from virtually every angle imaginable. Aside from all the great pictures she took of us, our family and friends and the ceremony, she also took some great photos of the reception area, my wife’s bouquet along with our rings and our wedding cake as well.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

My wife and I are very shy, so we’re obviously not all that accustomed to posing for photos. However, Karens’ calm and patience helped us to relax a bit, which allowed Karen to get shots that looked natural and fun instead of forced and awkward.
