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!

Jaime Elyse Style Shoot


It’s a new year and a fresh chapter and although I am not one to write out resolutions, I do love taking time to reflect on the previous year and to reset my focus for the year ahead. In that I have been reliving some of the amazing shoots I had the chance to be apart of in 2017, and this one popped up on my list. 

This shoot was something new for me and a step out of my comfort zone as I don’t typically do fashion/style shoots, but I had a lovely time getting to work with all of the creatives behind this one. And as always I loved shooting alongside my partner in crime, Heather Anderson of Heather Anderson Photography. We got the opportunity to play with a handful of lighting situations in one day which was great!
