"I have worked with a variety of wedding photographers from all over the island, and Karen is one of the most delightful photographers I have had the pleasure of working with. The ceremony we worked on was neither simple nor traditional...a Celtic circle on a huge rock ledge beside the ocean, with winds gusting. I watched as Karen deftly and fearlessly manoeuvred around rocks to capture not just the couple, but the whole ceremony, the involvement of family and friends.Karen is very intuitive...she quietly captured the most heartfelt and profound moments...even the unplanned was liek she knew exactly where to look next. It was a challenging job and she aced it with ease and style.Sometimes there are two photographers at a ceremony, and when I look at the (amazing) finished photos, it's hard to believe she did this all on her own.Karen is open, creative, talented and flexible and it was a delight to work with her."Barbara Densmore Wedding Celebrant

“Karen is one of the most gifted and intuitive photographers I’ve worked with throughout my years as a performing artist. She has a true brilliance in encapsulating a subject’s innermost personality.” Sarah Hagen, concert pianist

Hi Karen------this is both a testimonial and a request----it's almost time for another photoshoot with Anton and Sabine, and that is exciting because the portraits from last year beautifully captured their individual and very different personalities-------- we will always have time suspended at a lovely age---they are so engaged and engaging-----not always easy to bring about ,but of course they were comfortable---we tend to gaze in wonderment at the portraits on a rainy day when they are indoors and fingerpainting---we should set up a scenario like that for next time! Gratefully, the Hotsenpiller grandparents.

I have from a youth known that moment the eye catches their subject as they are. This moment that you capture Karen has the ability to transport the beholder and bring them closer to the subject...for some reason most often unknown the viewer sees something inherent in the persons life...the common sentiment is “...I like that photo”.

Karen has the ability to put her subjects at ease to allow her to capture their best and more redeeming qualities. She exudes professionalism but never loses her personal and warm touch.Wendy Johnstone
