Hey, I'm Karena!

I'm the founder and creative engine here at KS Photography.

When I'm not working with clients, I am usually home with my husband and two boys. We typically spend our days going for walks, hanging out at the zoo, or trying new restaurants. We're big on traveling and minimal living. We have learned over the years the importance of having little to live with more!

If you enjoy binge watching New Girl, eating tacos every night, or spontaneous adventures (even if it's to Walmart at 1am) - we might just get along<3

I absolutely love what I do - learning about you and then photographing such a special day means so much to me. I put 110% into every wedding I photograph to make it as organized and stress-free as possible.

Whether you're having a huge wedding here in the triad area, eloping in the mountains, or having a destination wedding - I will be the best third-wheel you can find.

Let's go grab a coffee. I am so excited to meet you.


  • I have been married to a wonderful man for five years. We got married at the same church that HIS parents got married at! It was a Lutheran church in St. Pete, Florida and it had the most beautiful stained glass windows.
  • We have two little boys named Holden & Hudson - yes, that is two boys named after cars. My husband is a huge car guy. Our dogs name is Bentley.
  • I originally was in school to become an elementary teacher (obviously that didn't work out). But I am not complaining, I love what I do now!
  • I do not like chocolate ice-cream (sorry chocolate lovers, vanilla always tops the cake)
  • I have never been on a cruise, but I don't think I'm missing out - right? I have traveled by airplane and car though.

""Karena was awesome throughout our maternity shoot and our wedding! She was so helpful and very professional. Very happy with how our pictures came out both for the maternity session and our wedding. We will definitely be using her for a newborn shoot and future family portraits!""
