For over a decade I’ve been telling the stories of couples from across the U.S. and here at home on Maryland’s idyllic Eastern Shore. Driven by those intimate, authentic interactions, I thoughtfully capture the details that make every occasion unique. It is my privilege to gift these artistic expressions of love to each and every couple—memories that will be passed down for generations to come.  

a sophisticated and down-to-earth approach

Hi, I'm Karena

- rachel and nash

She was the perfect photographer for our big day! Leading up to the big day, she is very thorough on making sure she knows the style of your wedding and what you are hoping for from her pictures. On the big day she was amazing. She made some of the people that were uncomfortable getting their pictures taken relax, and she really got some beautiful candid pictures. 

"Karena goes above and beyond to make sure your picture dreams come true."

- rebecca and james

Our engagement shoot and wedding photos came out absolutely beautifully, and they are so representative of us as a couple. Karena is fun and easy-going and helped to make our wedding day the most magical! Hiring her for our wedding was the best decision, and our wedding photos are perfection— a beautiful reminder to a very special day. 

"Words cannot express how much we loved working with Karena."

- lindsay and richie

I honestly can not say enough good things about Karena. She is an absolutely amazing photographer. I am the luckiest bride in the world that she traveled a thousand miles to photograph my wedding. I was very nervous going into our engagement photo session, but after about fifteen minutes into our engagement photo session it felt as if Karena was part of our family.

"Karena is not only an amazing photographer, but she is one of the nicest people I have ever met."
