About Karen

Just a few, fun-filled facts about myself.

That's me, second from left, celebrating a New Year's Eve wedding with Leslie & Jonathan. And it's a real selfie taken with a real camera. If you're not having fun with your photos, you're doing it wrong.

Hi!  I’m Karen and I have been capturing spontaneous, fun, true and natural wedding day memories for more than 17 years. My photos tell the story of a wedding – your wedding.

I am based in Little Rock, Arkansas where I have lived since 1997.  I have been a professional photographer for over 23 years. More importantly, I am photojournalist. For nearly 16 years, I was a full-time staff photographer for Arkansas’ largest newspaper. I have traveled throughout the country as well as abroad documenting the lives of others. I left my position with the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette to focus my career solely on weddings. I have now turned my documentary skills towards weddings.  

I was born and raised in New Orleans and graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1995 with a degree specializing in photojournalism.

I am member of the National Press Photographers Association since 1994 and from 2004-2009, I served on their Board of Directors.

I am also proud member of the Fearless Photographers, a directory of the best wedding photographers in the world. I am also a member of theWedding Photojournalists Association where I am an International Award-Winning wedding photographer. I am member of the prestigious The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers. But in the end, paper awards don’t really mean that much to me. What matters most – what ONLY matters – is that I have happy clients. Check out my Reviews page to find out how happy they are.

Working for a newspaper has taught me one very important lesson — be ready before the moment happens. Because with a wedding – your wedding – there are no do-overs. Sure, you can recreate just about any moment, but it’s just not the same.  

Customer service is also very important to me. As a consumer, I hate feeling blown off, brushed aside or made to feel less than important. It’s crucial to me to give my clients to best possible customer service. Therefore, I accept fewer than 20 weddings per year. If I’m available today, I might be booked tomorrow. My wedding dates book up quickly so please don’t hesitate to call me at 501-607-0090 or contact me to inquire about your wedding date.    

I also have the greatest husband ever who is my best friend and my worst critic. He never settles for mediocrity and he is always pushing me to be a better photographer. My child is furry, clingy, needy, overly lovable and has four legs...my cat Callisto. When I'm not out taking photos, you can find me on my yoga mat at my other home, Blue Yoga Nyla.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to hear from you soon.

Cheers, Karen
