Stella Maxwell, H&M, Met Gala and Teen Vogue

Karen Wise Stella Maxwell Met GalaThis Spring I had the pleasure of photographing model Stella Maxwell for H&M at her Met Gala dress fitting. The designers created an intricate low cut beaded gown which swayed as Stella walked down the red carpet and nine of my portraits ended up being featured in Teen Vogue!

New York City Hall Wedding

Karen Wise - New York City Hall WeddingIt was so much fun to shoot Mia + Sean’s super cool New York City Hall wedding in January. How sweet and joyful are these two? Mia + Sean’s unique post-ceremony photo session was set in the cobblestone streets of the meatpacking district near Hotel Gansevoort. The fashionable bride wore a silk flowing gown and a faux fur stole, to complete her wintery classic NYC look. After a chilly and brisk walk outside, the couple warmed up by jumping and cuddling on the bed with their pup.

Welcome Baby Henry!

Welcome Baby Henry!  Sweet Henry Nathaniel entered the world in late September 2016, and it’s been quite the ride! He will be turning 6 months old next week, I cannot believe it! Here are a few images I took in the past 6 months, including the first one taken on day 2, in the hospital, wearing the red hat I knit for him. He is also sporting a nifty blue cardigan I made for him last summer, at 9 weeks old while in Montreal. Sadly, he only got to wear it for one day before he outgrew it! XO

Wedding Portraits on the Highline

I loved Jung and Jereme’s wedding. It was so simple yet so beautiful. I’m especially pleased we made time for wedding portraits on the Highline, across the street from their venue, on this chilly November day.

I also loved that the couple included their puppy in the pictures, both while getting ready at home, and later at the beginning of their reception. How sweet is that?jungjereme-03

Waldorf Astoria and Harold Pratt House Wedding

I had the pleasure of photographing Chelsea & Michael’s Waldorf Astoria and Harold Pratt House Wedding earlier in the summer. I’m in love with their portraits. Such a beautiful couple. And… they even brought their 2 kittens! I’ve photographed puppies and larger canines at weddings before, but in my 15 years of shooting weddings, I’ve never seen a bride and groom bring felines! There’s a first for everything I guess!

Iceland in June

What an incredible week of scenic drives, glacier walks, black sand beaches, continuous sun and silica infused geothermal pools! I’m sharing some photographs I made from my trip to Iceland in June with my husband Chandler and our baby in utero. There are so many photos and video snippets, but I’m limiting it to just these for now. I cannot wait to return to experience Iceland’s beauty again!

Buttermilk Falls Inn wedding

I am thrilled to share this romantic and stylish Buttermilk Falls Inn wedding! Justin and Darren were dream clients – they were laid back, stylish and so fun-loving! I was also happy to see their wedding featured on Style Me Pretty this week. You may see the feature right here!

It was so sweet to witness how the couple considered the participation of their two young sons, Luke and Jake, in all their wedding festivities. Jake and Luke were included in Justin and Darren’s getting ready session, in their ceremony, and even in cocktail hour when they got to chase ducks and pick apples in Buttermilk Farm’s orchard. They even enjoyed holding a custom made Thank you sign for pictures which the couple would later print for their thank you cards.

Justin and Darren trusted me and gave me a lot of creative freedom within their itinerary. The palette of vibrant orange and peach dahlias and ranunculus, alongside the verdant green of the lush summer grasses, and the grooms’ handsome blue attire inspired unlimited picture-taking.
