Work with the most published wedding photographer in the country – right here in the LA/Orange County Area!
I love anticipating those once-in-a-lifetime, heart-melting moments — and snapping the perfect wedding photo at the perfect time.
I love using light and angles to make my clients look amazing. (People tell us that our wedding photography clients look like models. View our wedding and photojournalism galleries and see for yourself!).
I love showing women how to pose and stand in their wedding dresses so their photos look exactly how they want. (If you feel like your wedding dress makes you look “wide” — it’s not you! Certain dress styles do that to everyone!)
I love experiencing the ritual and beauty of weddings – whether they’re on the beach, in a church, in a private backyard garden, a luxurious resort, or wherever else inspires my clients .
Early in my career, I assisted some of Los Angeles’ top fashion and celebrity photographers. That experience laid the foundation for my distinctive fashion and photojournalistic wedding style.
Today, you’ll find my wedding photos in major publications including, Inside Weddings, Wedding Style, and Beautiful Weddings — in fact, my work accounts for over half the images in the top-three best-selling wedding books. I’ve been commissioned by entertainment, sports, and business personalities, and the television series Platinum Weddings has featured several of my weddings. Even other professional photographers hire me to take their wedding photos.
I’d love to work with you, too. Contact me today and tell me more about your special day.

Karen is the best in the business! From being professional but also so kind and caring, she was more than I could ask for in a wedding photographer! Her work is absolutely amazing and she definitely captured the beautiful moments of our wedding day! She works so hard to make her clients happy. She is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her to everyone I know. I hope to use her for any other special evens we have in the future.

I did a pre-wedding photo shoot with her and she made me feel so beautiful and comfortable! It was such a fun experience to shoot photos with her. The photos look like they are out of a magazine and I am so excited to have them forever and to give them to my fiancé! Best experience EVER! Recommended for all the women out there!

Karen is already a legend in the photographic world…and a lovely person as well! We were planning an epic wedding, and we knew we wanted the best to photograph it. So Karen was an easy decision for us. When you hire Karen French, you won’t feel like you hired a company – you will feel like you hired a friend who truly cares about you.

I found Karen because she is a preferred vendor for La Venta Inn. The photographs she took were beautiful, and there was a lot of variety. She and her assistant were extremely friendly, efficient, and even arrived early and stayed a bit late without charging me for overage time. It was an overall great experience to work with Karen!
