Karin was FABULOUS, and my husband and I are so happy that we chose her to photograph our big day! The pictures came out STUNNING, and she released them to me the week after my wedding! She is kind, energetic, professional, and knowledgeable; I highly recommend her to future... Read More couples!

Karin is amazing! She is so fun to work with and her pictures are just beautiful. We had our engagement pictures and wedding pictures done with her, and I love them all! She was very quick in getting our pictures back to us both times. She has a way of making you feel... Read More comfortable around her, and therefore look more comfortable and at ease in the pictures. She really captured some great moments at our wedding, and my family is still raving about how nice she was and how much they love the pictures. If you are looking for an excellent photographer, look no further. I highly recommend Karin Nicole Photography.

I don't know where to start. Karin was a blessing from the very moment I emailed her to ask about hiring her as a wedding photographer. She immediately responded to my message, and I was able to set up a phone call. I had absolutely no idea what I was doing, but she was very... Read More patient as I asked a whole lot of questions as if I DID know what I was doing. Once I spoke with her, I knew that she was the one we wanted for our pictures. We were long distance, but Karin worked with us to get our engagement shoot done, even though the day was super overcast and gloomy. The photos turned out wonderfully. Fast forward to the wedding. It was wonderful. Karin made everything look amazing, and she had so much fun doing it. I can't say enough about how great it was working with a photographer who genuinely loves what she is doing. Everyone loved working with her. Now that the wedding is over, my wife and I are brainstorming ways we can hire Karin again. There's always a maternity shoot!

Karin did an amazing job for our engagement session! She knew all the right poses to make us look great (and natural too!). Her energy throughout the session was what really helped us relax and the photos turned out to be just what we wanted. Highly recommended!

Karin is hands down the best! She met with me personally to discuss the details of my wedding day. Then on our day she arrived early to make sure she found the best places for pictures and to capture all the details of our wedding. I could not be happier with her! The pictures... Read More turned out AMAZING!! I still am getting compliments on them daily! The beautiful lighting she was able to capture was breathtaking. Throughout the day she would communicate with me and others to make sure I got all the pictures I wanted. I recommend her to anyone wanting beautiful pictures! We already are planning to use her for future events!

Initially what drew my daughter and I to this photographer was the price. Not having a large budget to work with, we were looking for nice pictures at a reasonable cost. This photographer has COMPLETELY EXCEEDED my expectations and provided our family with an ABSOLUTELY... Read More BEAUTIFUL gallery of this once-in-a-lifetime event! She managed to capture spontaneous expressions, breath-taking portraits, and images of the venue (i.e. flower arrangements, decor, food, etc.) that will be treasured for years to come! Being an "amateur enthusiast" in photography, I always flit around trying to capture each detail of every major life event. My daughter was insistent that I leave my camera at home and be fully present for that day. I was a bit worried at first that she would miss something, but between Karin's eye for detail, her organizational skills, and her second photographer, I can honestly say that she did not miss one single shot! Furthermore, I loved every picture. Everyone looked beautiful and radiant! I found it difficult to pick my "favorites" because I loved them all! Karin was a pleasure to work with as well. Throughout the day, she and her assistant remained calm, pleasant, and professional. We received a "sneak peek" of the wedding a few days after the event and all of the photographs shortly thereafter. If there were 10 stars, I would rate her that high, and I have recommended her services several times since. You will be completely happy with any photography service you choose to hire her for!

Oh where to start!! Well let me start by saying that I had a big fat Italian wedding. I had 10 bridesmaids, 10 groomsmen, 2 flower girls and 1 ring bearer and a ton of aunts/uncles/cousins. From the beginning Karin was so open and understanding. Communication is key. I flat out... Read More told her that my family was big, Italian and from Philly and she was all for the challenge. Not only that, but my husband is active duty in the Marines. The groomsmen (all marines) were very anxious and not the easiest to work with. Karin and Nikki handled it in the most professional way possible. As far as pricing she was very reasonable. We were on a budget because we had so many people who needed to come and I couldn't bring myself to paying 5,000+ for a photographer. At first I was weary of the quality of photos that was going to be provided because of the price (compared to others) but I was blown away! I actually cried tears of happiness when I saw the pictures. Karin was very open to trying poses that I saw on Pinterest but was honest with me. If she knew that was not going to turn out the way it looked online she flat out told me so we weren't waisting time. Attention to detail really shows. The only regret I have is not getting more time. We bought an additional 2 hours but because of the individual pictures my extended family wanted (which was expected especially with the culture) there was no way to fit it in the day. Especially with the sun going down so early. She did everything in her power to capture the highlights of my wedding and for that I am blessed. To anyone looking for a photographer who will listen to your needs while keeping you in line( because things will get stressful and you will get overwhelmed) while still being respectful and professional, Karin Nicole Photography is the company to use.

With time being in a crunch, we immediately searched for a photographer,... Read More Karin was recommended to us from another photographer. I'm very picky when it comes to styles of photography that I've seen over the Internet. Karins photos caught my eye. We are both extremely relieved and happy we chose to have Karin photograph our engagement pictures and our upcoming wedding in February. She is so flexible with dates and times and she is also always prompt when it comes to replying to an email or text. We were nervous to get our pictures taken for our engagement because we've never had pictures professionally taken of us so we didn't know if we were going to feel shy or awkward. Karin made us feel comfortable and gave us good laughs. Karin is very friendly. When we received our engagement pictures in a timely matter, my fiancé and I and our family were blown away. The pictures are so incredible, she's great at capturing emotion and the quality is beyond great. I can't express enough how much a recommend Karin. If you want to be stress free, have flexibility and be happy with what you've invested in then go with Karin!
