Stephanie + Jason

From Stephanie:
Choosing Kara and her team to capture the most precious moments of the most important day of our lives was absolutely the best decision we made in planning our wedding (well, aside from choosing each other, of course)! Last year, when I started searching for “Central Illinois Wedding Photographers” on Google, Kara’s was the first site that popped up, and my first impression from her website was phenomenal. This confidence and trust in her skills, her team, and just her, as a person, only grew stronger with our e-mail communications (very responsive and professional), our first in-person meeting (so informative and fun), and every interaction we had from that point, forward. I don’t even think Kara had made it out the door of the Panera where we first met before my (now) husband and I both looked at each other and said, resoundingly, “YES!” Our engagement session was a blast, the turnaround time for our photos was very quick, and the quality of the images – oh. my. WORD! I am a photographer, myself, and follow many others in the industry, and Kara is, by far, one of the absolute best I’ve ever seen! Not only are her skills behind the camera remarkable, the differentiator for her business is the way she treats her clients – like best friends and family. During our engagement session and especially our wedding day, Kara really made us feel that nothing else in the world mattered but what was happening in front of that camera. She captured every special moment that I dreamed of, and much more.  Every time I look at our wedding day photos, all of the emotions and happiness of that day come rushing back; this is the mark of a true artist.  She is more than just your photographer on your wedding day; she is a helping hand. She stopped her “photographer duties” to help us multiple times on our wedding day: to help get my tiara fixed in my hair, to help bustle my dress, and to remember to grab my bouquet from the site where we were shooting after I had set it down and left it there (oh, my goodness)! Beyond the “photographer-client” relationship, we have formed a friendship that will forever be cherished. You want someone capturing your wedding whom you can connect with, and Kara does exactly that with every one of her clients. She knows exactly what to say and do to get the perfect shot and capture every emotion. The high reviews and multiple awards she has received are invaluable proof of why Kara Kamienski Photography will be the best choice you make in planning your special day.

From Jason:
Kara was such a joy to work with from the moment we met her. She made us feel special at every encounter. It is clear that she is very passionate about the work that she does and about her clients. Our photos turned out amazing and they are something that my wife and I will cherish forever. In fact, I don’t think my wife has taken her eyes off of them since they arrived! Haha! We both recommend Kara and #teamKKP for your engagement and wedding photos. She has given us an irreplaceable gift that is so special to us – precious memories. Aside from choosing each other, Kara was the best choice we made for our wedding day. She is fun, professional, caring, and very, very talented. We don’t have one negative thing to say about her or her team. A wonderful person, an incredible photographer, and a great addition to your wedding team. Thank you, Kara! 🙂
