Karen Wise’s modern and sophisticated style is a favorite amongst the elegant New York bride. She specializes in portraiture and draws from her experience as a professional food photographer when capturing the beauty of flowers, landscapes, details and menus. Holding a BFA from RISD, she brings skill and depth to her photos.
Karen’s photographs have appeared in New York Magazine Weddings, Elegant Bride, and Martha Stewart Weddings. In spring 2008, Karen was named one of the Top Ten Wedding Photographers in the World by American PHOTO Magazine. Since then she has photographed several celebrity weddings, including the San Francisco wedding of Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer.
Karen has been interviewed by Vogue India, Marie Claire China, and the Huffington Post and is regularly featured on popular wedding and design blogs such as Snippet & Ink, and Design*Sponge. She has been awarded by the WPJA , PDN and The Knot. In addition, Kodak recently published one of Karen’s portraits in their advertising materials promoting the use of medium format film for wedding photography.
“I shoot weddings because I get to photograph what I love: portraits, still lifes and documentary style images which keep me on my toes. I love to connect with my clients and meet their cherished friends and family. It is such an honor to be put in the role of capturing a couple’s most special moments.”
