CAPTURING YOUR STORY

MEET THE photographer

MINNESOTA + DESTINATION PHOTOGRAPHER

I'm
Karlie

Oh hey! My name is Karlie Widhalm (the girl on the left) and I am SO excited you're here!

Let's start by giving you an insight into who I am and what my business is all about! Let's face it, trusting your vendors is a vital part of planning your day and you need to make sure that I am not only legit (promise I'm a real human), reliable, and professional - and I want you to know I am going to do everything I can to make your wedding day as stress free as possible!

ADVENTUROUS / CHEESE LOVER / OLD SOUL

THE WHY + HOW

The most common question I get asked is, "how did you get into photography?" and for the longest time I never new how to answer this question. I started photography in high school with an old film camera that was passed down to me from my grandma which started me on a journey I never thought I would travel. Many experiences and paid gigs later, I found myself about to start pharmacy school along with doing photography full time. Yes, that's right, my childhood dream was to become a pharmacist! I thought my dream was to help others medically, but clearly God had other plans. Through prayer and discussion with my #1 fan Rylee (my mans AND my videographer) I felt that I was destined to help others through photography. Making people laugh and capturing memories that can be cherished for years to come is something I fell in love with. Being in the wedding industry for over 5 years, I have had the opportunity to capture and spread what I believe life is truly about - JOY! When working with me you are promised a respectable company, fast communication and turnaround times, a friend, and the comfort in knowing the Always Karlie team will always make YOU a priority. We truly can't wait to make your dreams come to life.

INQUIRE WITH ME

WE PLAN + DREAM

WE MAKE IT HAPPEN

We'll hop on a consultation call either in person, on the phone, or virtual so we can discuss all things your day and any questions you may have. Once a package is decided, we will officially book you with a contract + retainer so no one else can steal me away for your date!

Now that you're locked in - check your inbox for some fun questionnaires so we can plan your engagement session and the details of your wedding day! This includes custom timeline creation and even feel free to send over all the inspo - we LOVE a good Pinterest board.

The big day is here! We will arrive to your location promptly and ready to capture all of the memories. You can expect sneak peeks within 24 hours and your full gallery within
8-10 weeks.
