I'm Karina. And I want to take your photo.
What can I say? I'm a people watcher.
I became a photographer because I'm interested in people, love hearing their stories.
Photography became my means of wriggling into peoples lives, of interacting with people I may have never met otherwise.
I'm a little quirky, a little silly, and very fun loving. Cool people and cool ideas excite me, and I love weddings because I get to put the two together - what could be better? I love tutus, cupcakes, Chucks, balloons, bright colors, a little chaos, awesome light, lovey couples and silly faces.
Fun Karina Facts:
Freckles. I have them. Yup.
I thought jackalopes were real until I went to Austin in 2014 and found out they're not. But I still believe.
I read voraciously. But, I don't read books during wedding season. If I pick up a book, nothing gets done til it's over.
I love food. All food. NachospizzabbqIndian grilledcheeseomlettesburgers. But if sushi is an option, I will always choose sushi. You've been warned.
Travel. I love it. I go to the Philippines for Christmas every year and I try to get on a plane to somewhere at least twice more.
Colorful walls and street art. I love it. Def my first choice for backdrops.
I'm a Sci-Fi nerd. Specifically a Whedonite. But Kara Thrace is my spirit animal.
If my jam comes on, I WILL break it down on the dance floor.
I'm bad at math.
I sang a cappella all of high school and for a couple years after college.
Texas Hold 'Em. I love it. My lucky hand is the ducks.
I'm typically a craft beer girl, but when I do liquor, I'm definitely a Patron girl.
I love pretty much everybody, but we might be an especially good fit if:
You love to laugh. Together. Separately. At each other. With each other. Spontaneously. Giddily. Etc.
You love great noms.
You appreciate a bad joke.
And can throw one back.
You're even a little bit nerdy. About pretty much anything.
You make out in front of your friends.
You know silliness is a virtue.
You're more of a craft beer than a white wine.
You are totally in love.
So, what do you think? Are we a good match?
There are so many photographers out there.
It's hard to choose, but one of the most important things
is that you're comfortable with and feel good about
the person taking your photos - because we're the person you're going to see most of the day.
So, hey, even if you don't think I'm you're speed
at least it isn't this guy taking your photos!
