I received my BA in photography and always LOVED the world of conceptual fine art photography. When I started shooting weddings in 2011 I found my calling — the perfect marriage (shameless pun!) of fine art and my training in photojournalism. Plus, the hopeless romantic in me just melts over the emotions and love that I get to be a part of while shooting weddings.

I’m an introvert expert, quietly reflecting the day back to you. I’m not big on drawing attention to myself because your day is all about you, your family and friends.

When I’m not out shooting, you can find me watching movies, curled up in a blanket snuggling with my hubby and our pup, Julee, at our feet. If I’m not being a homebody I’m probably visiting my family (the most important people in the world to me). 

You probably don’t know many sixteen-year-olds who outlined their career path in high school, but that was me. Even then I knew I wanted to be a photographer.

Hey, I'm Karissa!

This handsome Southern man is my best friend. He calls me Lois Lane because I’m curious and ask a million questions and he supports my binge-watching habit.

MY HUSBAND IS MY BIGGEST FAN.
