I'm Karissa. I am a California based photographer documenting stories for non-profit organizations and wedding couples. I believe that everyone has a story worth telling and I look for moments, candid or inspired, that honestly and authentically represent the missions and relationships of the people I work with. I absolutely love what I do and love sharing what I have learned along the way with others!

Northern California Styled Shoot at Shark Fin Cove


When I learned that I was going to be heading up to Santa Cruz for the weekend, I immediately knew that I wanted to put together a styled shoot. This coastline in Northern California is so spectacular, I had to capture this part of the world with a bridal look. The landscape helped to inspire the feel we were going for: adventurous, intimate, bohemian, and whimsical. I absolutely love how it turned out and I am extremely excited to share these photos with you. A huge thank you to Mandy Modic for modeling and Fionna Floral for providing the bouquet. Enjoy!
