Nice to meet you!

There is nothing more rewarding than making people feel as beautiful as they really are!

Hi!  I’m Karen Stauffer, the owner and photographer behind Karen Stauffer Photography. I am a boutique-style senior and wedding photographer based in the Bloomington/Normal area but serve other areas such as Champaign, Peoria, Springfield & even the Chicago area.

To me, beauty comes from within and radiates out to the world. Bringing out that confidence and telling peoples stories with my camera is my true passion.

I offer a boutique experience from start to finish. I am not a high volume photographer which means you are not a number to me. Because of the amount of time I take with each of my clients, I can only take a select number of seniors and weddings each month in order to be fully dedicated to my clients. You are the reason I can do this job I absolutely love! I want your experience to be one that will leave you feeling the most amazing you have ever felt in your life.

I strive to give all my clients a unique and authentic experience that captures everything from your free spirit, to the raw emotional moments of your day. I am not just a photographer, I am a friend, a confidant, and in some instances your wedding guru.

YOU ARE CAPABLE OF AMAZING THINGS… LET ME CAPTURE IT.
