Kara Webster Photography

"I love thinking back to the first time I jumped into wedding photography: a Canon Rebel T3i in hand and my eyes open to the beautiful dynamic scenes playing out in front of me. Just imagine fireworks going off in your heart--that's how it felt shooting my first wedding. It was like passion and purpose finally meeting each other. After my own experience with a wedding photographer, I knew exactly the kind of atmosphere a couple deserves, how they should be treated, and how this momentous occasion should be approached. So, I launched my business officially in 2017."
