About Shot from the Heart

My photography philosophy revolves around uncovering the magic woven into every moment of your day. I am deeply drawn to the raw and imperfect, believing they hold a unique beauty often overlooked. In each frame, I want to capture the genuine essence of how your day is organically playing out, embracing the messy and the spontaneous moments. Authentically, I am dedicated to crafting emotive images and tell your story in all its beautifully imperfect glory.

Behind The Brand Interview

What draws you to wedding photography?

I’ve always been obsessed with love. But love is threaded through every part of a wedding day like a thread holding it all together.

How would you describe your photography style?

Romantic, dreamy, ethereal.

What inspires you creatively?

Renaissance paintings, light, little quirks that each couple has that is different to the last.

What is it that makes an image magical?

Feeling. If you can’t feel what’s going on in an image when you’re looking at it, it’s just an ordinary snap, probably going to go unnoticed.

What advice would you give couples when selecting their wedding photographer?

It’s important that you find a photographer that “gets” you. When you choose someone that understands your vision, what you’re drawn to and the unique way the two of you are when you come together, your photographer will be able to see magic in every single moment that may go unnoticed by someone else, not just those “big” obvious ones.

Your dream location to shoot a wedding?

I love old cities, anything made of stone. Italy, the French country side.

Editor’s Notes

Why we love them…

Raw, real and imperfect, these are the elements that make up the philosophy behind Shot From the Heart. There is a kind of realness in the compositions in the work of Karen and El that can’t be replicated and, you would be hard pressed to find with any other luxury wedding photographer who can garner that kind of natural and enigmatic style.

For the couple…

This is the team made for couples looking for real and candid. There is something so dainty and yet unfiltered about the work done by the team at Shot From the Heart, the mother and daughter duo of Karen and El work seamlessly in collaboration with their clients to understand their own love story and how they can lend their skills and support.
