We’re Karissa and Mike! We travel throughout the world capturing our couple's beautiful and unique stories. We are big ol' nature lovers, and our happy place is exploring the outdoors together with our dog, Remus. As kids, we both spent much of our free time outside. Karissa grew up traveling with her family to the mountains and splashing around in lakes. Mike spent summers chasing fireflies and making tree forts with his siblings. All of those years of falling in love with the outdoors are a huge part of who we are today. Our hearts are most full while hiking, camping, road tripping or sitting around a campfire with our favorite people.
We LOVE getting to meet new friends from around the world and can't wait to learn about your story! So let's get to know each other. While we do, let's chat through your elopement day vision, answer your questions and start planning your best adventure yet!

Don't worry, we have a few tricks to make you feel comfortable, but at the end of the day, it's about you having an amazing time while we capture all of the memories along the way.
"WONDERFUL Photographers and photographs!! Karissa and Mike are two of the most AMAZING and warm-hearted people! Their passion for their work exudes through everything they do. They have a wonderful gift of service and they really make you feel special. From beginning to the end, knowing that they were my photographers gave me a huge relief and confidence for the big day! Hands down, the BEST choice for my wedding aside from marrying my husband!! From scouting sites thoroughly, helping these two derps become photographable in front of the camera, and just being great people to be around, Karissa and Mike will truly top off all your events with AMAZINGGG photographs to look back on. My husband and I, along with our entire families could not be more thrilled with the outcome of these photographs. What a gem to find high-quality people who produce high-quality work. I HIGHLY recommend them!!"
"My fiancé and I are pretty camera shy and were worried we wouldn't be able to look natural, but oh my god, Karissa and Mike worked their magic! They absolutely went above and beyond our expectations. Couples -- do yourselves a favor and shoot them a message now! It will be one of the best choices you'll make in the wedding process :)"
"I can't begin to express how grateful we are to have found Karissa & Mike. Their photos are absolutely breathtaking but equally as beautiful as the love and personalization they put into the work that they do. From hand-written cards to meetings over drinks, the Wildflower experience is unparalleled. Their professionalism, attention to detail, expertise, and talent is like nothing we've ever seen, and we feel so lucky to have hired them. More than anything, having Karissa and Mike there with us on our wedding day made us feel comfortable and relaxed, like we were with family, and that is exactly what you want to feel on your wedding day."
