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!
There’s just something about bridal showers. They are full love, laughter, and excitement. And I have to say Muriel’s bridal shower perfectly embodied all three of these things. Her mom, sisters, aunts, cousins, and friends surrounded her with an abundance of love and chatter about plans for the big day.
Often times as wedding photographers, we don’t get to be apart of the bridal shower. When Muriel was the first bride to ask me to photography her bridal shower. I have to say I was so thankful to be there. I was able to capture these incredible women at this stage of Muriel’s wedding planning. Not only was it a joy to shoot, but it allowed me to get to know these ladies before we were together on her wedding day.
