My wedding photography style is romantic documentary. I aim for photographs that are artistic and styish, while being natural and beautiful. want you to feel you can simply relax, enjoy your wedding day and take it all in. Photography should be the last thing on your mind.
I've been lucky enough that I've won muliplte international awards from the Wedding Photojournalist Association, The Interational Soceity of Wedding and Portrait Photographers and Fearless Photographers. I've been featured in many of the UK's top blogs and wedding publications. But most of all, I really adore my job and I love getting to know couples, their friends and family through the lens of their wedding day.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the price of your service?
I love shooting weddings that range from intimate civil ceremonies to big multi-day affairs. Get in touch for a bespoke quote!
What does the wedding package include?
All of my packages include coverage with myself, travel costs, planning and consult meetings, an online password protected gallery and direct download of high resolution images. You can add on engagement sessions, albums and video highlights to your package if you're looking for something a bit extra.
How far in advance should I contact you?
Many popular Saturdays can book about a year in advance, but there's always some dates that don't book as quickly. Get in touch and find out if I have your date still free!
Are you able to travel?
Most definitely! I love packing my camera and suitcase and going on a photo adventure!
What is the charge for travelling?
I like to keep my travel charges as simple as possible. There's no extra travel charge for weddings in the UK and for weddings in Europe, there's a flat rate added fee (no matter what it ends up costing me).
Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?
All weddings and couples shoots are delivered via a private online gallery. This gallery has direct download of the high resolution images, print ordering and controls that allow you to turn privacy on and off for the photos that your friends and family see.
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
I'm the primary photographer for any event that I'm hired for. Depending on the scale of the wedding, I may have additional shooters that I bring with me. I'll still always be there to make sure things go smoothly and are photographed exactly how you would want them to be.
If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?
Of course! Weddings can be unpredictable, I'm happy to stay longer if I'm needed to.
What are the forms of payment?
I take BAC's and Credit Card Payments.

If you're looking for a kind, professional, talented and organised photographer, Kari is the photographer for you! Kari did our engagement photos last September, and to this day, I am so happy we found her! My fiance and I are very camera shy, but Kari made the experience not only relaxing, but also so much fun. I absolutely LOVE our engagement photos and would recommend Kari to anyone in a heartbeat!Sent on 13/08/2020
"You were our best wedding purchase..."
I bought cute thank you notes to send to all our suppliers but I’m afraid we couldn't fit everything we wanted to say to you on one card! It’s hard to know where to start when saying thank you to you because not only did you capture our wedding in the most spectacular way, but you leant a hand with button holes, getting people organised, running back and forth and just generally providing an amazing presence. On the day- As soon as you arrived you whizzed into action, finding unique places to photograph wedding accessories, capturing us getting ready and helping out with button holes. You are a complete professional and so good at what you do, but you became like another good friend rather than just being there to take our photo. You added to our experience and became a huge part of our day with your personality and sense of humour. The photos- Well what can we say? They are so beautiful and exactly what we wanted when we set out to find a photographer. I literally look at them every day, spending ages scanning through them all, reliving the day all over again. We have had so many comments on them, everyone complimenting them and saying good you are. We particularly love the ones of us outside and the ones of Emmie who stole the show and you have just captured her personality in every shot. To say you were our best wedding purchase doesn’t do you justice, because you didn’t just provide us with fantastic memories of our wedding, but helped make it so special by being who you are. We are so grateful to have these special photos of our wedding day and can’t thank you enough for everything.Sent on 30/04/2019

"You are so calm, organised, entertaining..."
Thank you so, so much for the beautiful photographs. They are quite literally everything I dreamed of and more… I wanted “big” (read: iconic) photos but a small ceremony… Your gallery immediately stood out to me. I loved all of the colour, the artistry, and the occasional goofy pictures thrown in. When I emailed you to communicate my interest and told you that I wanted pictures in front of all of the landmarks that scream London (did I mention I have an obsession with London? haha), you replied with a similarly themed shoot you had done. And that sealed the decision for me! Your photo galleries have the perfect mix of serious, playful, artistic, and elegance. I knew going into our photoshoot that we would have great pictures based on your previous work, but what I did not know or fully appreciate was the work and dedication you put into getting the photos! Sometimes the more interesting photograph is what’s happening on the other side of the people or scene being captured, and a perfect example of that is my mental image of you laying stomach down in a mix of rain, dirt, and likely other worse things, to get the perfect shot of us in front of Big Ben. So, thank you, too, for your commitment to getting the best angle! Lastly, I have to thank you for your personality! You are so calm, organised, entertaining, fearless (running into traffic for another one of my favourite photos you took!), and accommodating…The pictures are phenomenal and surpassed all of my expectations. My obsession with your city has grown and I will always treasure your perfect capturing of our memories from that day. Thank you so very much, Kari. With much admiration and gratitude, Catherine and MichaelSent on 29/04/2019
