Karissa is one if the sweetest hardest working people I have had the pleasure of meeting. As far as her photography skills go... The pictures we got back from Karissa for our engagement shoot and wedding blew my mind. I loved every photo. My husband and I had no idea what we... Read More were doing but she coached us through each pose and they were stunning. Karissa also hiked up two miles while it snowed for our engagement shoot. I couldn't be happier!

I can't say enough amazing things about Karissa! She is amazing! She would be off photographing and be back before you realized she was gone.

Our wedding at Roche Harbor was amazing…Every Thing fell into place from the weather to the smallest flower arrangement details. It couldn’t have been more…amazing. I only wish it didn’t go by so fast! These wedding memories with family and friends, which are some of my most... Read More precious life moments, were artfully photographed by Karissa. She loves what she does and it’s very apparent as you watch her energetically work. Karissa is an artist and I highly recommend her; no one will record your memories better. She’s also a very sweet and wonderful human being!

Karissa Roe is beyond amazing! From our initial phone conversation/interview to the engagement photos, to her magazine explaining and telling you all about her photography and day of info, to the actual wedding day! She is beyond talented, professional, and a breeze to work... Read More with. She more than captured our day. She scouted locations, made a timeline, kept everyone on schedule, answered any question we thought of, and did the most amazing candids of our guests and reception! The candids are so great, but her scenic portraits of us and our location have made us cry multiple times. I want her to be my life photographer. She will catch moments of your day that you didn't even know happened. I can't stop looking at them and my Husband and I have cried multiple times.

Karrisa is not only a professional and talented photographer, but she does use her heart to capture all the important moment for us. We are so grateful to have her as our photographer for our engagement session and wedding day. She was full of energy and smiles the whole time.... Read More None of us could tell that she was exhausted at all after a 9 hours shooting day. Our family members and all the guest believe she enjoys her profession so much. I would definitely have Karissa to be our photographer again for my maternity photos and family photos in the future. The quality of her works are exceptional. They are very natural to us. I do not like some of the styles with too much photoshop effect and the couples are not the focal points, but the photoshopped background. Trust the photographer and you will get some romantic shots even you are in an ordinary place. Communication with her was an ease. Think about wedding planning could be very exhausting. She did not add any additional stress to us but she did make our life easier by filling out the pre wedding questionnaire. Although it took sometimes for us to complete it. However, it was a life saver on the wedding day because Karissa already knew our preferences and needs in advance. She is totally amazing! You will not regret to choose her for your important day or any occasion.

Karissa Roe Photography, and Karissa, are hidden gems that I took a leap of faith in hiring for our wedding solely based on the raving reviews via The Knot. When newly-engaged, I was clueless about photographers and had no idea which direction we would end up going with our... Read More price range, style of photos, etc. Then, I saw Karissa's EPIC main photo here on The Knot, the one of the couple standing in front a school in Tacoma, and I was hooked. Let me tell you ladies, Karissa does not disappoint and I have the MOST BEAUTIFUL wedding pictures a girl could ask for. Karissa is personable, patient, ridiculously easy to sign agreements with, and has the ability to wrangle in all of those relatives you want pictures with but, oh-I-didn't-know-I-was-supposed-to-stay-for-pictures during your reception. She has such a creative eye for photography, and took the time in advance to visit our venue before the big day to get ideas on first look, golden hour, and family portrait locations. It did take a full month, as outlined in the contract, to receive all of my wedding photos, but Karissa took the time to send me two individual images in particular about two weeks after our wedding so that they could be given as a birthday gift to a family member. She doesn't know it yet, but I plan on keeping Karissa around for all future family portraits, because she is just so great and creates images you will want to share with all of your friends and family.

Karissa photographed both my engagement photos as well as my wedding day...and I couldn't have chosen a better artist to capture these memories in such a beautiful and perfect way. Our engagement photos were a perfect mix of candid, "us" shots with some gorgeous fairy-tale-lit... Read More romantic shots. It was incredibly difficult to choose just one to send out with our wedding invitations. And then there are the wedding photos themselves...oh my goodness. I couldn't have dreamed that Karissa would get the shots that she did. She captured absolutely everything that was most important to us and then some. And the quality of the images is superb. Karissa is a master of light, and the way in which she uses both natural and artificial is just phenomenal. We couldn't have asked for a better job done. From one photographer to another...from one friend to another...thank you so much for the beautiful images that we will surely look back on and treasure for the rest of our years together. Your art is magical, and we are so thankful that you have shared it with us.
