You have questions?

I've got answers.

Where are you located?

I live in Monterey, CA. But, I love traveling and exploring new places! Just say the word and I AM THERE!

How do I book you?

Hop on over to my contact page and fill out the form! Once I receive your inquiry, we will chat all about your vision and make sure we are the PERFECT fit! If I’m available on your date and we vibe well, you’ll be all set!

How long have you been a photographer?

I graduated with BA in Photography and have been photographing professionally for 8 years!

Do you travel?

HECK YEAH I do! No destination is too far for this gal! Just let me know the deets when you inquire and we will chat all about travel for your dream location!

What's your turnaround time?

I like to get my galleries out as quickly as possible without compromising the quality of my work! Every single one of my clients deserve the absolute BEST. That being said, it all depends on my workload at the time and how much I am traveling. 

I average about  2-4 weeks for couples + family sessions and 8-12 weeks for weddings + elopements!

Please keep in mind: Turnaround times are estimates and not guarantees! Although I do try my best to stick to those timelines, sometimes life does happen. Rest assured, I am always working as quickly as I can to get your epic galleries back to you! It will be worth the wait-- I promise!

How do i get my photos?

 I deliver all of my galleries via Pixieset, an online gallery platform. Once your gallery is ready, I send it to you via email with all of the instructions you need to download your images to your devices!

What happens if the weather is bad?

No worries! We will just reschedule your session for my next available date. I want you to have the best experience possible during your shoot!

Help! What do we wear to our session?

I LOVE helping with outfits! I will be able to give you some guidance on what colors and styles will look best at the location we are shooting. I really enjoy sending inspo + creating vision boards to give you ideas. I always say wear something you feel AMAZING in! 

How many images are included?

It depends how much time we spend together! 
For sessions I deliver 100+ images on average and for weddings + elopements I deliver anywhere from 300-1,000 images on average.

will you photoshop us?

I pride myself on keeping my images REAL and true to life! I will edit out little things here and there if need be (i.e. blemishes and teeth whitening) but, I definitely like stick to my flattering prompts and poses to capture your genuine, happy selves! 

Do you help in the planning process?

YES!!!  I absolutely LOVE to be a part of your wedding planning experience. I am always here to offer any advice and most definitely help create your photo timeline to ensure things go as smoothly as possible on your big day! Making sure you get everything you want captured is my top priority.

What if we cancel or reschedule our date?

I totally get it, life happens!—If your date is cancelled the non-refundable retainer fee paid at the time of booking is still non-refundable.

If you have to reschedule your date, I will do my absolute best to work with you based on my availability. If I have your new date available, your retainer fee can easily be transferred over!

How does payment work?

During the time of a booking a non-refundable retainer fee will be paid in order to lock in your date! The remaining balance will be due one week before your shoot. If necessary, I happily offer payment plans to best accommodate your needs!

Do you give out raw Images?

No, I do NOT give out raw photos. That's like paying a painter for a blank canvas! I spend countless hours sifting through thousands of photos to find all the gems and edit them to perfection!

Will you edit in a different style for me?

Nope! You are hiring me for my unique creative eye + style. Therefore, the images I deliver to you will be edited true to my style.

    Ryan and I had the pleasure of working with Karyssa in the midst of Covid. She stuck by us through the entirety - from postponements, change of locations, and even 2 new dates.  To say this girl isn’t a die hard for her clients is an understatement. She was always there for us when we needed her- advice, check ins, and always making sure we had everything handled. 

    When it came to our special day, I’ve never seen a vendor work as hard as her. She delivered everything we could have asked for and more- our photos are our favorite thing about our wedding process. Her punctuality, flawless editing ability, professionalism, organization, and overall friendly nature is really what makes her an asset to anybody’s wedding! 

  She’ll forever be our friend and go to photographer girl for all of our photo needs as our family grows.

-Emily + Ryan

How do we even express in words how grateful we are for Karyssa?? She not only managed to take the most breathtaking photos, but we walked away from our shoot with a new friend! She is incredibly smart- an expert her field. She is wildly easy to get along with. And she is an amazing communicator! If you want stunning photos, a comfortable shooting environment, and even a new friend, CHOOSE KARYSSA!! 
Karyssa we love you and we can’t wait to shoot with you again!!!
 We couldn’t be happier!

-Savannah + Cameron

Karyssa is truly ONE OF A KIND!

She’s is an example of pure professionalism with alot of heart for what she does. She goes above and beyond to help you through every step of wedding planning and ensures your day will be captured just as you envision it to be. 

She is such a light and brings joy to her engagement sessions and weddings. She made us feel very comfortable and relaxed when I absolutely hate taking pictures. I cannot thank her enough for capturing my wedding day. My husband and I will cherish the beautiful work she did for us for many years to come! 

-Adalia + Anthony

Our elopement experience wouldn't have been the same without Karyssa. From casual photos the day before to capturing our moment, to traveling through Glacier National Park to find the most iconic and memorable pictures possible...Karyssa made the best day of our lives the best it could possibly be. Her personality and kind heart allowed us to be ourselves in our most intimate moments, which is what made capturing our moments so powerful. We love you Karyssa! 

-Raleigh + Zach

From the minute we met her modeling at a collab shoot, 
Karyssa has captured so many special moments in our lives and every session is always so much fun and natural. I look forward to her capturing many more of our memories!
