  • “Our experience with Karen Hansen as our wedding photographer would be difficult to improve upon. The pictures speak for themselves. (Bride in black and red in the gallery) Almost as important is how this was planned and executed. Karen worked with us in advance to ensure that we not only got the desired shots, but also to integrate the photography into the overall schedule for the day. She also offered many great ideas that we happily used. The resulting photographs are treasures that we would not have otherwise.Our ceremony itself was a rather involved affair in which each guest participated individually with the couple and Officiants. Karen rose to this challenge capturing both the detail of the interactions as well as the overall ceremony beautifully. She managed this without being noticeable. Her rapport with our guests was amazing. She managed to deal with a very diverse and outgoing group. To get them to focus and follow instructions was quite a feat. To do it in the time allotted and without losing patience deserves a medal.She delivered the photographs ahead of schedule. Their beauty and composition are beyond our expectations, and there are an almost overwhelming number of them. Karen is a consummate professional and a gifted artist. She is also a charming character and a pleasure to work with.”Richard Hopkins (A.K.A. Orchard Pinkish)
