About this Vendor

Karen Wise, an acclaimed wedding photographer, has been recognized as one of the best in her field by American Photo magazine (“World’s Top 10”) and The Knot (“Best in New York”). Karen’s work has appeared in New York Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings, VOGUE India, Marie Claire China, Style Me Pretty, and many more magazines. Karen has been perfecting the art of wedding photography for more than 14 years, combining technical expertise in digital and film with a fine arts finish. From 20s glamour to marigold splendor, Karen captures the unique spirit of each wedding she shoots, rendering it with stylistic elegance and emotional richness.

After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography, Karen spent five years as an apprentice with some of New York’s finest commercial still life, fashion, and portrait photographers. Having acquired this practical and creative background, Karen then launched her own business. She has since photographed celebrity weddings, including Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer’s wedding in San Francisco and Yo-Yo Ma’s daughter’s wedding in Massachusetts, five-day long Indian extravaganzas, tropical destination weddings, and many distinctive New York nuptials.

Couples choose Karen not just for the artistic quality of her work, but for her disposition behind the camera. Clients often remark that they “didn’t know Karen was there” when they see photos of their vows.

In addition to weddings, Karen photographs food, families and portraiture. She also teaches food photography & styling workshops collaborating with chefs and food stylists in the New York area. She loves organic, locally grown food, weekly yoga classes, and traveling (she’s originally from Montreal and speaks French too). Karen lives in Park Slope, Brooklyn with her husband and two cats, and a baby on the way!
