Jason + Stephanie

If you’ve been searching high and low for the best photographer for your special day, just stop. And choose Kara. She is absolutely the best photographer you will find in all of Illinois and the surrounding states.

When we got engaged, the first thing I did was search for a photographer. I have always said that if I splurge on ONE thing for our wedding, it will be the photography, because those images last a lifetime. I knew that finding a good photographer would probably be the most difficult thing for me in the whole wedding planning process, because it had. to be. PERFECT! It didn’t take long for me to come across her website, and I trust Kara and her team 100% with our wedding.

Within weeks of getting engaged, we contacted, met, and instantly said “Yes!” to hiring Kara for our wedding and engagement photos. We recently had our engagement session and it was SO. MUCH. FUN! From the moment she arrived, Kara made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. She captures true moments, making all of her photography look very natural (not posed).

Something I must point out is how the engagement shoot really reminded us of the true meaning behind all of this. My fiancé and I have been together for 7 and ½ years, engaged for 7 months. Amidst all of the wedding planning chaos, it’s easy to get lost in it all and momentarily forget about the reason you’re doing all of this: because of the true love that you share with this other person. The engagement shoot with Kara really reminded us both of our love for one another. I felt like she was not only capturing our engagement pictures, but at the same time pulling out true emotion from both of us, which we’ll be able to feel every time we look at these pictures in the future.

Kara is an artist, a genius with her cameras, and although we’ve only known her for a few short months, she feels like a true friend. Professionalism and talent are, of course, necessary when running a business as successful as hers, but her personality and the way she interacts with people and makes them feel comfortable is an absolute gift.

From booking your wedding package with Kara, to planning all the details, to your engagement session, to your wedding, Kara Kamienski Photography is the one to choose! She will work with you to personalize your wedding package to make your day everything YOU want it to be – not what the package states it HAS to be (like many other photographers do). She truly has a passion for her photography and her couples, wanting to make each bride and groom’s engagement and wedding individually special. She has done just that for us from the moment I first contacted her through her website.

You will NOT be disappointed with Kara and the lasting memories she creates for you. This will be the best investment you make for your wedding day.
