We’re Kari and Caleb, and we love photographing real emotion. We’re New Yorkers living in France, and we have spent the past 12 years capturing gorgeous weddings all over the world. We love love. We are obsessed with natural light. Coffee, whisky, and wine give us life. We aim to give each couple photos that match their personalities, so we love getting to know you before the wedding day through Skype and/or an engagement session. We would love to be a part of your wedding journey.
Information about the services provided by Cottonwood Studios are outlined below
Back Up Equipment
We always bring backup camera bodies, backup lenses, backup flashes, and backup memory cards to our sessions and weddings. This is such an important part of being a photographer. You only have one wedding day!
We offer a complimentary engagement session with all our packages. We are happy to shoot for free in Paris, or for the cost of travel anywhere else in the world. Don’t hesitate to ask about your location–chances are, it won’t cost much to make it happen!!
Full Day Coverage
It’s your wedding day story. We want to photograph from the time you’re getting ready through the guests dancing on the dance floor. Our packages begin with a minimum of 8 hours of coverage with two photographers.
We will make a schedule based on your wedding day plans.
Your wedding photos will be displayed in a password protected wedding gallery for 90 days where your friends and family can order prints directly from us. You won’t need the gallery for yourself, as all your photos will be delivered online in high-resolution format within 1 month of the wedding. But the gallery is a great way to share the day with your guests!
We love chatting with you over Skype to plan the particulars of your wedding day. Let us help you through your planning!
Second Shooter Available
We only shoot as a pair. And we’re both lead photographers. You never have to worry about getting stuck with a second shooter who doesn’t know what they’re doing or doesn’t have the best equipment!
Shoots on Digital
We find that digital photography is a more reliable way of photographing. Kari began shooting on film, and while she still ADORES film photography, the risk of losing a roll of film from a wedding day is simply too high. We love having all our photos backed up to 2 memory cards the moment each photo is taken.
We offer beautiful lay-flat wedding albums that are custom designed to your personal taste. We design each album ourselves with photos that you’ve chosen from your wedding gallery.
Willing to Travel
We love to travel. We will go anywhere and everywhere for an engagement session or wedding. We will calculate the travel fees and bill them do you directly. We always make sure that we arrive to your location 2 days before the session/wedding in case of airport or weather delays.

I can’t say enough about Kari and Caleb. They get to know you – I’d want to hang with them on the weekends! I don’t know if I would have survived our wedding day without them. Kari was with the girls, and Caleb with the guys. It worked out perfectly. Both Kari and Caleb have great ideas for photo ops, but they make it fun! And those are the most genuine type of photos. They captured so many moments. Everyone is raving about the photos–they brought me to tears. I would recommend them to everyone!
Kari and Caleb are the best wedding photographers!!! You can’t beat this wife and husband duo! We cannot recommend them highly enough. From our engagement shoot to our wedding day, they were so accommodating and easy to get along with. They truly care about the clients’ experience and happiness with their photos. They were so helpful in making our wedding day run smoothly. If you’re looking for the right wedding photographers, look no further.
Kari and Caleb are amazing! We liked them from the moment we met them, and the photos came out absolutely beautiful. Neither my husband or I like having our picture taken but they made us very comfortable. They were always quick to respond and have their s*** together. On top of the photography, they were both very helpful during the getting ready process for both of us and throughout the day. They are clearly wedding pros! We couldn’t be happier with how the photos came out either!
