I cannot say enough great things about Karen. Reviews are everything in this business and she deserves to have someone sing her praises after the amazing job she did with our wedding. First, the night we met and did engagement photos, she took the time to sit down and run through exactly what we were looking for and to get to know us. This helped make sure she knew simple things (like I love shoes) and then she incorporated our personalities into our photos. 
Further, she busted her butt. We had a tight window to get our wedding photos in and she ran us around, hit the spots we wanted, and got it all in. At one point she was even lying on the ground to get the shots she wanted (and, yes, she nailed it; it might be my favorite picture from the whole wedding). 
And truthfully the results speak for themselves. We really got the best of both worlds with Karen - she did some show-stopping artistic shots that we can frame forever as well as smaller, candid moments that we can cherish as well. After looking through plenty of wedding albums, it's no small task to master both, and she really did.
And finally, and probably most importantly, she is just a wonderful person to be around. It's a wedding. Everyone is stressed and crunched for time, and she just knocked it out without any issue whatsoever. She was sweet and genuine and just a delight to work with. Not to mention she was early, insanely accommodating, and even had a sneak peek photo album in my email the morning after the wedding. Who does that? 
Overall, I could not ask for a better experience.

    Thank you for the awesome review! Your and your bride were fantastic! I loved the day, and I always love a good challenge. Laying on the ground was worth the challenge... naked it. The photos were fabulous, because the wedding party was so good to work with! Thank you again for asking me to photograph your wedding! xoxo

Karen was amazing for our wedding. We had several vendors that did their job very well but the thing that Karen does that no one else comes even close to is go above and beyond to make sure the wedding goes smoothly. With her kind words and sheer force of will she will make sure the bride is satisfied and has a great time no matter what hiccups come throughout the day. - Matthew Richter May 28, 2017

I can not begin to say enough good things about Karen. My husband and my best friends had her for their wedding in 2015. At that time I was so impressed with her I asked her if she was available in May 2017, and I didn't even have a ring yet! She feels more like a friend than a "vendor" and she is super efficient with family photos (unorganized family photos are my big pet peeve) 
I always knew Karen would do a great job but she exceeded expectations when we had a crisis. When our DJ was MIA she sprang into action, keeping me calm, calling her friends in the community, and then making sure we continued to get the pictures I had wanted. The DJ showed and all was good, but Karen became my wedding fairy godmother for the day! 
Of course he photos are beautiful, you can see that on her website. What you can't tell just from looking is her fun warm personality and how hard she busts her butt during your wedding. 
If anyone out there wants more info about Karen don't hesitate to contact me! We'll be calling her for baby picture someday! Efs13@case.ed

I cannot speak highly enough of Karen, Kamron, and Genevieve. The team at Karen Menyhart Photography was phenomenal and helped contribute to the best day of our lives. We had an unexpected winter wedding complete with rain and snow.. Karen watched the forecast, brought umbrellas, and made sure we still got the outdoor shots that we had so hoped for. Throughout the wedding week she stayed in touch and was such a pleasure to work with. My husband and I really wanted a relaxed presence as a photographer, someone that could reign in the masses but also have fun. Karen did all this and more. She had a blast with the party and when plans had to change due to weather she rolled with it and helped make even better plans!! We are so grateful to Karen and her team for their hard work. AND after working so hard for us the whole day of the wedding, my husband and I are able to look at a sneak peak of photos the very next day. We are amazed! Karen Menyhart photography has been a true blessing for us. I would recommend her to anyone!! THANK YOU KAREN!!

Choosing Karen Menyhart Photography was, hands down, the best choice we made for our wedding. From our initial consultation to when she departed at the end of our reception, Karen was professional, personable, and fun. Karen herself is bubbly, creative, and intelligent and is open to discussing your ideas and concerns to make sure you make the best decision for your wedding photographer. At our initial consultation she went through all of our questions and brought so much positive energy--something we were sorely lacking since we had a terrible experience with a previous photographer--and actually got us excited for our wedding photography again! She wasn't pushy at all, and made us feel as if she wanted us to find the perfect fit. As the wedding approached, she made our concerns her concerns when I expressed how I wanted to be photographed and the shots we didn't want to miss for the day, and had fabulous suggestions for ways to prepare and make sure our photos turned out exactly as we wanted them. She researched locations for us when we told her what kind of photos we wanted (where could we find the perfect pumpkin patch? What's a good location with both industrial and rustic natural elements? Don't worry, Karen's got it!), and helped make a schedule that would allow us to fit it all in. The day-of, she arrived on time with her fabulous team and was such a soothing presence throughout the day. She seamlessly blended into the background when shooting precious candid moments, was great at corralling my enormous bridal party for posed shots, and energized the group when it was time to get moving. It never felt as if she was a stranger to our group, and I got compliments from many members of our bridal party on how wonderful she and her team was. She had such fun ideas for shots and some of our favorite photos are ones that she suggested on the fly. Neither her or her assistants were afraid to climb rocks, walk through the weeds, or get dirty for the right shots. (Also, special shout out to her wonderful daughter, assistant, and aspiring photographer, Genevieve.I was a little nervous knowing a student was an assistant, but she displayed the same dedication, professionalism, and savvy as her mother.) She communicated to us about where she'd be so there were no surprises, and masterfully photographed around any hiccups (we had a groomsmen pass out in the middle of the ceremony, and she managed to capture our vows that happened during it and you'd never know something was wrong!). At the reception, she let us have fun but was working diligently in the background and managed to capture some awesome shots of the main events (us walking in, first dance, etc), but also adorable pictures of our decor and little details we would have missed otherwise. She also checked with my husband and I before leaving to make sure we got all the shots we needed instead of just taking off when her clock ran out--a gesture meant a lot to us and demonstrates how much she truly cares about her customers. To wrap up, Karen and her team are just incredible. They are talented and knowledgeable about photography and lighting, but that's not what makes them so great. What sets them apart is how they connected with us and our guests and gave us memories, not just pictures. Karen brought so much FUN and JOY with her every step of the way, and we're so grateful. Thank you SO MUCH to the Karen Menyhart Photography team! You made all the difference on our special day!

    Karen was an absolute dream to work with. From the moment we first talked to her on Skype, we knew we had found someone we would genuinely enjoy spending a day with (and on your wedding day - that is SO important). Karen was full of great advice before and during the wedding, and always made sure that we were happy and comfortable. 

    We told Karen that while we wanted some formal family photos, the most important thing for us was capturing the real essence of the day - love, family, and fun, in more organic photos. She totally got us - and the photos prove it. They are absolutely stunning with brilliant colour, and we have gotten so many compliments already - and that's just based on a few "sneak peeks" (which were available only a day after the wedding - incredible!) 

    Thank you Karen, for being so amazing! Our family, friends, and we love you!

    Thank you Andrea and Tristan! The love and warm fuzzies goes both ways! xoxox

WOW!!! Where do I begin...Karen has been a pleasure to work with since the beginning. My fiancé and I were very particular about who to hire for our photographer because we were not going to have a videographer. We met with 5 different ones and clicked with Karen right off the bat. I believe having a connection is an important part of the relationship with the photographer and she nailed it. The engagement shoot was super fun and the pictures turned out great. She was easy to get a hold of and very quick to respond to e-mails, texts and calls. She was interested in knowing what exactly we wanted out of the day and got great shots. She is very professional and knows how to handle a big bridal party (we had 21). I hands down would recommend Karen for anyone looking for a great photographer and didn't wanna break the bank!!! SHES FANTASTIC!!!

My husband and I were very pleased with Karen, her personality, company, team, and, most of all, her pictures. We had first chosen a different company to do our photography, but they scammed us out of our money. In a way, I'm glad that happened. It led us to Karen which turned out to be 10X's better than that other company probably would have been. On top of her bubbly, positive, down-to-earth and genuinely nice personality, her pictures are beautiful. She's able to capture the happiness and love my husband and I share for each other in each one of her pictures. She's very easy to get along with and goes with the flow, which, as any bride knows, can make a world of difference on your special day.

However, with spending so much time recently with Karen and seeing the phenomenal photos she's taken, she's beginning to change my mind. Karen shot both our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos, and they turned out GORGEOUS!!! Karen really took the time to get to know Bryan and I on a personal level and it shows in our photos. My wedding party and the guests at the wedding all commented on how kind and professional Karen and her staff was, as well as saying how impressed they were with the photos they've seen so far.

I cannot say enough nice things about Karen and her whole team. Karen, Genevieve and Mara were an absolute delight to work with the day of our wedding. I could not imagine my day without them being there! 

After meeting Karen for the first time I knew that I wanted her to shoot our wedding! After telling her that my husband and I had met at a carnival she came up with the idea for us to do our engagment shoot at the County Fair! Loved the idea and I never would have thought of it myself. The pictures were stunning. She even made my husband feel relaxed and have a good time during the shoot! He's not usually overly excited about getting his picture taken. 

She was easy to reach anytime I had an questions over the year before our date. She is amazingly creative. She is the one who asked if we would want to shoot our wedding pictures in this amazing sunflower field in Avon. It was amazing. She reminded me to make sure everyone had the proper foot attire for the shoot and also day of when it was raining told me that if I wasn't completely comofortable getting in the fields that it would be copletely okay. No pressure. She had backup locations in mind for where we could go if the rain got worse. Thankfully the rain held out! But I knew she would do an amazing job wherever we ended up in downtown Cleveland. 


If you want an intelligent, funny, creative and insanely talented photographer to capture amazing moments on the best day of you life then you need to book Karen and her team. My whole bridal party loved working with her. My entire family loved working with her while she was constantly shooting away during the reception! I am so excited to get all of our pictures back. 

My husband was hesitant of me splurging on wedding photography but even after the wedding he said that it was the best money we spent that day, and I could not agree more. So you should book Karen so you can have amazing wedding photos and so you can have a good time with her!

Karen is the BEST

posted 07/20/2015

From start to finish, Karen was absolutely the most fun, professional, creative person we've worked with. We hired her early into our planning process and I'm so glad we did because I couldn't imagine our wedding day without her. She made Matt and I feel at ease from the second we met her, chatting about Ireland and Bono with us at a bridal fair. She was absolutely down for anything, even when we changed the venue and location on her, which we so appreciated. She stayed in contact with us during the 18 months between signing the contract and the actual wedding day and answered any questions we had and met with us a couple of different times to walk through what we wanted. 

Matt and I are pretty non-traditional but one of the most important things for us was that we absolutely did not want to see each other until I walked down the aisle at our 4:45 p.m. wedding ceremony. Another photographer might have tried to dissuade us from that plan or pushed to do a "reveal" photo earlier in the day, but not Karen. We told her what was important to us and she not only respected that but helped us arrange the day's schedule to ensure that our first glimpse of each other was at the ceremony. She made sure she had multiple cameras on Matt to capture his reaction. She was totally committed to our vision for the day and made sure we got the shots most important to us. 

On the day of the wedding, Karen brought a second shooter, Sarah, and a third shooter, Genevieve, so we were SO lucky to have three photographers capturing the same day. Even with 90 degree heat and a totally outdoor wedding, Karen, Sarah, and Genevieve remained cheerful, upbeat, and excited. Karen and her team made all of our friends and family feel at ease and so many of our attendants, friends, and family commented on how much they loved Karen and were actually enjoying having their pictures taken. Karen was also assertive when it came to making sure we got the formal posed photos, which saved time and discomfort (with four grandparents in their late 70s and 80s, this was a godsend). Karen and her team were also incredibly kind: they cheered on the entire wedding party and kept us feeling great throughout the evening. Their passion and excitement were contagious and added even more fun to our wedding day. 

Karen came up with tons of awesome ideas on the fly and was brimming with energy throughout the entire night. She easily adapted to whatever was thrown her way; when it looked like it was about to rain, she was prepared with umbrellas and ready to stash her gear at a second's notice. 

The photos we have so far are gorgeous. The formal portraits are classic without being stuffy and the couple pictures are romantic without being hokey. Karen created timeless work that we'll be able to share with our family for decades to come. A review on theknot.com can't even come close to expressing the amount of gratitude we have towards Karen for these pictures. 

Okay, so how do we close this review of Karen? She was awesome. She was fun. She was absolutely professional, prepared, and attentive. She went out of her way to coordinate with our videographer and other vendors. We wish we could have our wedding over and over again so that we could work with Karen all the time. She captured our wedding perfectly and for that, we'll always be grateful.

We hired Karen and her assistants to shoot both our engagement photos and our wedding. Karen and her team did a wonderful job in both the engagement shoot and the wedding. We met with Karen prior to the wedding and she did an excellent job planning and coordinating our wedding day including the preparations and the family photos afterwards. One of the big advantages was having an assistant so time could be divided between the bride and groom and nothing was missed. The day went on without a hitch and Karen did a great job keeping us on schedule and capturing all the little parts of our day (including an impromptu beer run). We found that Karen was able to keep a rowdy bridal party in order which was very helpful. The pictures from the day turned out wonderfully. She quickly got a small batch of sneak peek pictures ready for us and they were amazing. Overall Karen added to the experience at our wedding and truly captured the essence of our wonderful day. I would recommend Karen whole-heartily for your wedding. She was a ton of fun and a pleasure to work with!

What to say about Karen... Abso-FREAKING-lutely AMAZING!!!! Karen did the pictures for our wedding this July and I am above and beyond satisfied. The pictures look beautiful, Karen and her assistant have the most adorable and positive personalities, she had great ideas for poses, and she was able to instruct everyone in the posed pictures so that we could get the most in before we had to head in to the reception. I don't think that any words, no matter how positive, could describe Karen... THAT is how amazing she is! Pick Karen and I am willing to bet my life savings that you will not be disappointed. Between the quality pictures you receive, the attentiveness of Karen and Gena, and the price you pay for it all... you 100% hit the trifecta by hiring Karen Menyhart Photography. Hands down. ABSOLUTELY no doubt about it. Side note: her assistant is her daughter (I mean, how adorable is that?!) and they work flawless together... definitely a well-oiled machine, those two.

Fabulous photographer!

Karen was fantastic on our wedding day! She made it fun for everyone involved, was professional, courteous, and made certain that nothing was left to chance. She takes beautiful photographs that my husband and all family members will cherish forever. She has a knack for capturing the candid moments; and those shots are the favorites. She also did an exceptional job capturing the setting and even the essence of the day. Whenever we look at our wedding photos, we are transported back to our special day. Karen has tremendous talent, and is a joy to work with. We highly recommend her!

Karen is the best in the area

Karen and her crew could not have been better or more professional! We used her for my sisters wedding and my own (9 weeks apart!). Both weddings she was timely, got amazing pictures, used her time wisely, and brought many ideas as well as listening to ours! She was able to capture each bride and groom perfectly. Through her pictures and work you can see the differences in personalities, styles, and the energy really shows through them. The best part was the day after my wedding, she sent 5 or 6 beautiful pictures from the day so we can post on social media and send out. Awesome to have a few right after to boast about! I would hire her again in a second and almost want to throw a big party just so we can see her again. She, Mara, and Genna are the best! You will not be disappointed if you use them!!

Wonderful photographer!

Karen is a phenomenal photographer. We first had an engagement shoot with her in May, which she went above and beyond to plan. She had driven around the area to check out locations and brought props to fit in with our "Up" themed shoot. We got access to our pictures quickly and could not have been more pleased. Our December wedding was even better. We got married on a Saturday, and had many photos to view by Sunday night. Karen and her team did a great job directing photos when needed, and being unobtrusive at other times. They were great to spend the day with, a good mix of easy going and serious, and Karen's genuine excitement throughout the entire day was amazing. Karen is very talented, getting the shot right first instead of going back and editing the photos to get the shot she wanted. She responds quickly to emails, phone calls, and text messages. I would absolutely recommend Karen to anyone looking for a photographer, and a friend has already booked Karen for her own wedding.
