Hello, I'm Karina! and I tell romantic love stories, your love stories, through gorgeous, timeless, colorful and bright imagery you'll treasure forever. I'm a friendly and helpful high energy professional English speaking Paris wedding photographer and Provence wedding photographer, originally from the United States. I strive to ensure you have an amazing, stress-free and fun experience. I'll gently guide you, allowing you to focus on each other, to create authentic, emotional moments. I can't wait to meet you, and capture these memories that will inspire you, and fill your heart with joy.






Truly the most romantic city in the world. Paris delights with its magnificent monuments and landmarks, its gardens and cute little streets. It's the absolute perfect place to celebrate your love story!

Whether it's an engagement, honeymoon, anniversary or birthday you're celebrating, or just celebrating life, together we'll capture your time in Paris with romantic photographs you'll hold dear to your heart, a reminder of this wonderful city, and a reminder of your time together here.


Preserve Your Precious Memories!

We all love digital files, I do too, and each collection includes digital files. But you can't curl up with a digital file, grab a cup of coffee, and re-live your beautiful memories. That's why you also have the option to create gorgeous print products, and other wonderful keepsakes . You can design these yourself, and order directly from your online gallery, to enjoy forever!


An elopement in Paris is a dream, the most romantic experience ever. With the majesty of monuments like the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre behind you, the gorgeous Paris gardens, and so much more, it's a day you'll remember forever.

I've photographed so many wonderful couples, looking for an intimate, meaningful and emotional experience as they exchange their vows in Paris. I'm there to capture all of that emotion, the laughter, the inevitable tears, all of it. I want you to FEEL this day, over and over again, every time you look at your photos.

Don't hesitate to reach out to learn more about my elopement services in Paris!

Karina is an absolute joy to work with and her suggestions not only helped us capture stunning photos but were invaluable to helping us plan our vow exchange. Her knowledge of Paris locations for good photos is unparalleled and despite the oppressive heat wave she made us look amazing. I would 100% recommend her to anyone who wants to capture their special moments in Paris.

I know what you're thinking, a fairy tale, Karina, really? Isn't that a bit dramatic? I admit it, before I moved to Provence part-time and bought a really old house in a Roman town, all that came to mind when I thought of Provence was lavender. But it's so much more!

It's cute-as-can-be villages, perched on the top of mountains. It's cherry blossoms, and olive groves, and sunflower fields (and yes, lavender fields). It's forest, and sea, and colorful. The light is indeed beautiful (why do you think Van Gogh moved here from Paris?) and makes everyone look so good!

I adore capturing the wonderful memories of couples visiting Provence, don't hesitate to reach out to get started planning!
