Having that awareness and openness to possibility during the wedding day allows me to see each event through fresh eyes, and to capture the magic in moments throughout the day. So often, upon receiving their wedding images, my clients say that they are surprised (and delighted!) by what I was able to capture, often catching moments they themselves missed or fleeting moments of spontaneity. These moments are always some of my favorites to document.
My experience allows me to know what to expect and to expect the unexpected!
My experience has shown me that no two couples are the same, and therefore no two weddings are alike. Knowing this allows me to stay open to all of the possibilities of each one-of-a-kind wedding day. Anything can happen! (In a good way!)

"We were so lucky to have Karen Lewis photograph our wedding. She was a pleasure to work with from our initial meeting to the day of our wedding. Karen offered helpful suggestions but also allowed us flexibility and options. She not only beautifully shot the specific photos of family and friends that we envisioned, but also captured all of the intimate moments of the day with her innate artistic eye. She taught us what the circle of love is, which is a tool that we utilize in photos to this day. We love looking back at our wedding album and reliving all of the memories and candid moments of wedding day, and we have Karen to thank for that."

"Karen, we love the photos! You did such an amazing job - the moments, the colors and the composition were all on point. It was super cool to see all the different sides of the wedding that I would not have been able to see otherwise. You were able to capture so many moments on such an amazing day and we are so blessed! You truly are talented and we could not have asked for a better photographer. Thank you so much!"

"Karen Lewis was wonderful to work with. She took the time to meet with me prior to our wedding date to talk through the plan for the day and get an idea of the kinds of photos I wanted. We were working with a limited amount of time (and budget!), and Karen was able to follow through with exactly what we talked about and more! She was flexible and friendly- multiple people came up to me to tell me how sweet she was while taking candids at our reception. I am quite picky and can honestly say I was super impressed with the final photos- she was able to capture the vibe and moments of the day perfectly and I loved her vintage and artistic inspired approach- it was exactly what I wanted!"

"Karen Lewis came recommended to us through my sister and brother in law. Karen had photographed their wedding five years prior, and they raved about her. After our first phone conversation, I knew Karen was the right fit to photograph our wedding. She was responsive and kind in her communication, listened to us, and spoke about the importance of capturing the small moments that as the bride and groom, you may miss. To me this was everything. I wanted to look back at my wedding pictures and see some group family pictures, but mostly I wanted to see the memories and the moments. And that’s what we received! I can’t believe that she was able to capture so much and was able to turn around our pictures so quickly. We have and will continue to recommend Karen to all our our friends!"

"We thoroughly enjoyed working with Karen Lewis! We first met when she was photographing a close friend's wedding - I loved their pictures & reached out when it was my turn! It was an easy process start to finish. She was quick to respond, flexible, & spent time listening to what we wanted from our photos but also gave us realistic expectations for the day of - like picking 1 or 2 spots where we absolutely wanted photos. She even met with us a month before to see the venue/ceremony sites & get a sense of how the day would proceed. Our photos are beautiful. She was also able to capture sweet moments & pictures of our guests - no videographer needed to remember the day! At the end, we got a USB with all of our photos so making prints for friends & family was super easy! We would highly recommend Karen!"
