How many hours of coverage is included?

While shot lists sound helpful, I find that they actually limit my creativity and ability to capture your day in the best way possible. However, I always ask if there are any special shots you have in mind and I do ask for your preferred family groupings for a "family photo list". Other than that, my couples trust me and the vision I have to create a beautiful gallery of their day!

Do you work from a shot list?

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

Let's be real--weddings can be so stressful and I am not here to add to that stress. Though there are many steps I take to minimize stress on your wedding day, the biggest thing I do is to help you feel comfortable with me and in front of my camera. To be in front of a camera is to be vulnerable, and to hire a photographer for such a special day requires a lot of trust. That's why it is always my goal to create a genuine relationship with my couples--to build trust! This also means that it will feel like a long-time friend is by your side on your wedding day--not some stranger snapping pics all day and then saying "Sayonara!" at the end of it.

You can trust that I will guide you through the whole wedding photography process, from creating the perfect timeline...to capturing all of the details and emotions...to providing you with the highest quality of print products...and so much more! My help is never off-limits when it comes to trusting in me! I am here for YOU.

So thankful we chose her...

"Absolutely loved working with Karisa from start to finish! She is so personable and friendly, and made everything so easy when we did not know what to do behind the camera and the pictures turned out so amazing! From the engagement pictures to the wedding day, Karisa was amazing! She even came and traveled across states to our wedding and we are so thankful! From start to finish I am so thankful that we chose her as our wedding photographer. I recommend anyone work with Karisa :)"

Absolutely gorgeous...

"Karisa was wonderful from the moment I inquired about photography, she responded quickly and communicated throughout the entire process. She sent a helpful questionnaire to keep organized while getting the shots we wanted and was very helpful with creating a wedding timeline so that things went smooth. Karisa was great at keeping us on track, giving us direction but also not making us feel rushed. We got our "sneak peak" photos very fast and all of our photos in the time she told us. The photography was absolutely gorgeous, she captured so many beautiful memories!"

Nothing short of extraordinary...

"Karisa was truly an angel! The quality and quantity of photos we received from her were nothing short of extraordinary. Not only did she capture the key moments flawlessly, but she also managed to encapsulate the emotions and joy of the day in every single image. The artistry and technical expertise displayed in her work were truly incredible. We were so pleasantly surprised by the generous number of photos we received, allowing us to relive each moment and experience the day from various perspectives.

...I cannot recommend her more highly; her warm and reassuring nature made us feel so relaxed... 

Thank you, Karisa, for going above and beyond to capture the essence of our special day. We’re forever thankful for you!"
