A fun and adventurous wedding + elopement photographer living on the central coast of California. I live for making genuine connections with my couples and capturing the unique love they share for one another. I’m happiest when I’m exploring epic locations with sweet humans in front of me and my camera in hand. I strive to create images and an experience that you will be able to cherish for years to come. Movement is the name of my game, so during a shoot with me, you won’t be standing still for long! Yes, I will make you do ALL the silly + dorky things to capture that pure joy and emotion that is genuinely YOU. 

Oh, hello there!

I'm Karyssa.

 You're my girl! ->


I love plants, coffee, traveling, pasta + red wine- in no particular order. Most days you can find me playing my fave records, consuming way too much coffee, and taking care of my plant babies. I am definitely a sunshine loving beach girl with a love for exploring new places + good eats (total foodie right here!) 

I am an outgoing person to say the least, and love to put all of the best energy into my sessions with my clients. Nothing is more important to me than creating the most fun + memorable experience for you. The thing I cherish the most about my job is the incredible and lasting friendships I make with all of you sweet humans!

When I don't have my camera in hand, or my eyeballs staring at my computer screen... I am enjoying quality time with my love, our floofy little shiba, Dexter + our family and friends. I am a HUGE family girl, and truly believe I wouldn't be where I am today without their constant love + support of me and my dreams!

I’m so happy you Found me!

We honestly don’t know where to begin! Karyssa was truly a DREAM photographer. She made our day perfect. Not only are her pictures flawless, her personality made the experience. She was our photographer for our engagement photos and our wedding, and the photos she captured of us are nothing short of amazing. We will continue to book her for each milestone in our lives, and highly recommend everyone do the same!

    Karyssa has become an extended member of our family! She’s been with us for our engagement photos, wedding, family photos each year and is now along for the ride as we are becoming parents! We truly couldn’t ask for a better photographer and now friend. We are two goofy, awkward people but she always makes us feel like models in front of the camera and every picture is a beautifully captured memory. Karyssa is so fun and creative and has so many ideas that always result in the best photos. I couldn’t imagine going through this exciting phase of life without her, and we look forward to many more fun sessions in the future!

   We have found not only an amazing photographer in Karyssa but a great friend. She has always made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and captures such an amazing moments. From our very first engagement session with her when we were so nervous, she made us feel so comfortable and eased our nerves immediately. I remember seeing our gallery in awe of how she captured our love perfectly. Karyssa has captured so many milestones in our life and I couldn’t imagine sharing these special moments with anyone else. I highly recommend her if you are looking for an amazing photographer.
