I believe that wedding photography is done best when couples have a relationship with their photographer and fully trust them. This is how we have guaranteed and delivered incredible photography experiences to our Photography by Karla couples in the past 17 years! When I arrive on a wedding day, I need to feel like an old friend and not like a stranger. This affects every aspect of how your photos will turn out! My Photography studio takes a natural approach to capturing the love and joyous occasion of your wedding day. The day you have spent so much time preparing for, dreaming of and investing in will go by so quickly and that is one of the great reasons to invest in a professional wedding photographer who can tell the unique story of your day from beginning to end.

Love is my one true passion

You now you want great images but what you may not realize is that you need a great experience with your photographer more than anything! That is exactly what we promise to give you in order to get those natural, genuine portraits that truly capture who you are, you have to feel comfortable with the person taking them. The way you feel while you are having your portraits taken heavily influences how you feel when you see yourself in the final images. Creating comfortable, joyful and genuine client experiences is what we specialize in and we are excited to share more about what the Photography by Karla Experience includes!

Most wedding days are crazy, hectic, chaotic and never goes according to plan. However, as your photographer, I will do my best to make my part of it as seamless as possible. Before your wedding, we will go over a timeline that should help the photography part of your day so you can just enjoy! My timeline usually starts with getting ready all the way to your reception and exit if time allows.

Say Hello




When it comes to weddings, I have found that for a traditional wedding day, I need a minimum of 9 hours to capture the full story of your day with a stress-free timeline.  My Wedding options start at $4050 with the opportunity to add on custom fine art albums and wall art or gift prints etc.

Elopements are such a sweet time for a couple and tend to be less stressful. Many times, my elopement couples just want simplicity and other times, they want to feel like they had a huge wedding with a small guest list. Sometimes, it's you, me and your officiant and that is ok. I love elopements because it is like an engagement session but in a wedding dress and a suit. 

“Karla was absolutely fantastic! Every step of the way! Karla was so helpful when it came to even the smallest things from the engagement photos to the wedding day. Everyone absolutely loved her and her team. Her photos are amazing, she’s amazing, and her team as well. We would not have wanted anyone else to have for the whole process." - Hannah

"This day will forever be special to me and Ethan for more reasons than one and we were so happy to have such an amazing photographer to share it with and be able to cherish those special moments!"
- Morgan and Ethan

You were such an amazing photographer and overall person to have present on our big day. I can't tell you how appreciative Corey and I were to have you there and to keep us organized and sane. Again, I just can't thank you enough and I have many people getting married soon so I will be sure to pass your name along. 
- Emily and Corey + the dogs

“Karla and Travis were amazing! They are not only great photographers, but also great people and we really enjoyed hanging out with them during the wedding and reception. We will definitely be hiring them when we have kids to do a shoot for that. You will love them! - Greg
