PARIS AND PROVENCE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Hello and welcome! My name’s Karina, and I’m a storyteller. I tell the stories of love between people with my camera, in timeless and treasured images captured in Paris, Provence, and throughout France and Europe.
I love people, I love to learn about the couples I work with and share in their special day.
Whether that’s an elopement under a shade tree in Paris with a gorgeous view of the Eiffel Tower, a grand wedding ceremony in a chateau in Provence, or an intimate vow renewal in a Paris garden, I’m fortunate and blessed to be able to play a small role in the important moments in a couple’s life.
I’m originally from Minnesota, the Land of 10,000 Lakes in the United States. I grew up in Minnesota, on a farm, in the middle of nowhere, with nothing to do on those long summer days but daydream, write short stories, and make movies in my head (I had no camera yet).
I first came to Paris as a student in high school and it made a huge impression on me. In 2012 I bought a little apartment here and moved full time a few years’ later. I live in the hip, trendy and fabulous 11th arrondissement, where several times a day I can smell freshly baked pain au chocolat wafting through my windows from the bakery on the corner. It makes it difficult to stay on a diet, but I love living here! But what I love more is sharing this city with others.
I began my photography journey as a videographer, with a dream of being a documentary filmmaker. Gradually I became more interested in still photography, which is now also a passion of mine. I spent many years honing my stills on landscape and travel photography (you can see my Etsy shop here). I love to tell stories through visual imagery, and as they say–a picture really is worth a thousand words.
I’m attracted to bold colors and beautiful light. Using the beauty of France as the canvas, I strive to capture the beauty and essence of people. Your wedding, elopement or vow renewal is very special, and I treat it that way.
To me, there’s more to having a photography business than just taking great images. Your entire experience is really important to me. It is truly an honor to meet so many amazing people, capture their happiness, and see France together. I look forward to welcoming you too!
Okay enough about me, I want to hear about you! Please contact me with any questions you have or just to say bonjour!
Bonne journée! (that means have a nice day!)
