With SO many photographers out there to choose from, it can be quite daunting to find a perfect fit - personality wise and photography style - to capture your most important day. Luckily, we found Karen who simply was amazing throughout the entire process. We were uncertain about having an engagement session but Karen convinced us it was a good preview to getting out in front of the camera together. Our sunrise session was really so much fun. I thought it would be awkward and slightly staged having someone we just met photograph us. Karen was able to get wonderful shots of exactly who we are as a couple. She made us feel perfectly natural and at ease which just continued to our wedding day. Karen was probably the most helpful "vendor" planning the event. She worked with us through a very detailed timeline and gave a questionnaire beforehand to help her understand the meaningful pieces of our day. The wedding pictures are literally exactly everything we could have hoped for. Some were the classic shots and others showed an artistic touch. The turn-around time for receiving our pictures was incredible especially because it was around Christmas! Even after the wedding Karen continued to surprise us with little treats and thank-you's. I think of Karen not only as our wonderful wedding photographer but as a friend.

Working with Karen was a dream! She is an extremely talented photographer and an amazing person! She was so organized throughout the whole process and was always eager to answer our questions. Each time we met with her, or spoke with her, she was so genuine and easy to work with! We absolutely love her and her amazing photos!

Karen was amazing to work with. Throughout the whole engagement process she was extremely encouraging and helpful. She worked with what I wanted for my wedding, and ensured everything I wanted for my dream wedding came true. She is based out of Virginia, but my wedding was in Texas so we kept in contact mostly over email. It felt like she was right alongside me the whole process though! Karen was very professional, and knew exactly what she was doing. It was encouraging to have someone the day of the wedding who knew how to handle all the twists and turns your wedding day brings you; very flexible and quick on her feet!

Karen was incredible to work with! She was always quick to respond to questions and was so positive and supportive the day of our wedding. She's very professional, but also really cares about her brides and will make sure you feel prepared and calm leading up to your big day.

Karen's personal touch is unmatched! Of all the wedding vendors we used, she took the most time, care, and genuine concern for making our day and our photos exactly what we wanted without any added pressure. The photos turned out wonderfully, and she made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera, my camera shy husband included! I can't thank her enough!

Jenny & Will

There just are not words to describe what a beautiful and perfect job Karen did capturing our wedding. Really and truly I cannot thank her enough. Everyone who has seen our pictures absolutely LOVES them. I was absolutely floored by all of the wonderful moments she captured and felt so blessed to get to relive it all through her lens and deconstruct the whirlwind of a night to savor each beautiful moment! She really did a perfect job capturing the people and things and moments that were important to us. I was just awestruck going through them -- I think I could fill a book describing how each picture she sent us was exactly what we would have wanted, perfectly captured, and artistically gorgeous. Karen Allen Photography was, without a doubt, our absolute favorite wedding vendor that we worked with throughout the entire process. And she herself is beyond wonderful. I cannot thank her enough--it's a fact!

Karen was a fantastic photographer to work with and I can't say enough positive things about our experience with her. Quality wedding photos were one of our top priorities for our wedding and Karen gave us that and more. She is super organized and very prompt to respond to emails- one of my favorite things about her! She was always very professional and we got our edited photos returned to us in record turnaround time. After meeting with Karen for the first time, we knew she was the right choice for a wedding photographer. Even today, long after our wedding, we are still so grateful that we found Karen because she exceeded all of our expectations and captured so many special moments from our wedding day that we will cherish forever.

Karen is not only a wonderful photographer, but she is a warm and kindhearted person! From our first meeting she made my husband and I feel as though we were all old friends and had known each other for years. She was instrumental in helping with my wedding planning, especially timing out portrait sessions. This was great because based on her excellent recommendations we were able to squeeze in 3 portrait sessions, and we have so many more beautiful pictures to remember our special day! She is very professional, but she also sends you lovely treats (those sugar cookies are amazing!). I would highly recommend Karen Allen to anyone seeking a high quality professional wedding photographer.
