Absolutely! Your experience working with me includes a styling guide that will give you all the tips and tricks needed to pick the most flattering and photo-friendly outfits! You are also always welcome to ask me for styling advice and opinions--I'm here to help!

Will you help us decide what to wear?

Yes! I am here to help and posing you is just one way I do this. My job is to help you feel comfortable and direct you into flattering, natural poses during your session. Listen, none of the couples in my portfolio are professional models so if you think they look pretty darn good, let that be the proof you need to know that I'll take care of you. And if the photos aren't enough, check out the sweet words left by some of my clients! 

We are so awkward in front of the camera...will you help pose us?

Absolutely! I love a good adventure, especially when a love story is involved. Travel rates are customized to each location. Reach out today to learn more!

frequently asked questions

I have been a full-time wedding photographer since 2022 with a lifelong passion for the art. I previously worked as a Registered Nurse before deciding to help others in a different way: preserving the most precious memories for others to treasure for a lifetime and beyond. 

I currently live in Arlington, VA with my husband and 2 dogs. We relocated here in 2023 for my husband's work (he's in the Coast Guard!). When I'm not working with my amazing couples, I am likely to be hitting the gym, taking the dogs out on an adventure with my hubby, or enjoying bottomless mimosas for brunch!

Behind the Scenes

meet your photographer

To be in front of a camera is to be vulnerable, whether we like to admit it or not. This is why it is so important to feel comfortable with the person photographing you, and it is always my goal to create a friendship with my couples in order to achieve that comfort level! This means that I will ask you questions that may not seem to relate to your actual photoshoot but prove to be so valuable in capturing you in the most authentic way possible.

You can also trust that I will guide you through the whole process, from picking the perfect outfit...to posing you...to recommending the best place to print your images...and so much more! My help is never off-limits when it comes to trusting in me!

Exactly what I was dreaming of...

Karisa made the session so fun and easy for us! Made us laugh and was great at easing any nervousness about the session. She was very punctual and was quick to respond any time I had questions! Also the photos were EXACTLY what I was dreaming of for my engagement shoot- would highly recommend to anyone!! 


10/10 experience from start to finish...

A 10/10 experience from start to finish! From the second we booked our photoshoot with Karisa she was SO dedicated to getting to know us and making us feel comfortable. Working with her was so much fun and we genuinely enjoyed the photoshoot experience. The photos blew all of our expectations out of the water. I couldn’t have envisioned a better outcome. Absolutely amazing experience.


Exceeded our expectations...

Karisa was super sweet and exceeded our expectations as my fiancé and I's engagement photographer. She was very easy to work with and made us very comfortable in front of the camera. Our photos came out so beautiful and we can't wait to share them with our family and friends! 100% recommend Karisa as your photographer!
