Karri North grew up in the rural routes of the Niagara Region, and now resides with her two children in downtown Toronto. As most of her family still dwells in Niagara, she has the pleasure of being able to work in the country as well as in the city---something that she feels keeps her ideas diverse.
Her interest in photography began as a preteen and has grown into the central passion of her adult life. Karri has taken her camera throughout Canada and the United States, to Asia, India and Europe; and in doing so, has compiled a significant body of travel photography and personal work. She began shooting wedding photographs in 1998, and found that her subjects were highly receptive to her photojournalistic, or ‘candid’ style.
While wedding photography remains her core line of work, Karri will always be exploring alternate avenues in the photographic field, be they personal or collabrative, artistic or commercial. She is ever interested in rising to new challenges to meet her clients standards, and her own personal vision.
Award Winning Photos
The Wedding Photojournalist Association proudly recognizes the accomplishments and creative excellence of Karri. The following awards have been earned by Karri from the WPJA. These achievements come with great merit considering the high level of competition that a member faces in the contests.
Photographer's CommentThe bride had just been in tears after receiving blessings from her family at the end of a very musical bedeken ceremony. Her groom had placed her veil and now, taking a moment to gather herself, she adjusts it and readies herself for the ceremony to follow. I love how she's caught somewhere in a sad joy, between fear and anticipation. A harsh light softened by many windows.
Nice close-up of the bride who seems unaware that her photograph is being taken. She has a beautiful expression and the use of black and white and light give her a very elegant look.
The photographer’s use of black and white, the composition and the particular moment between the couple make this an excellent portrait.
This is true, kids do this. It is not only a nice behind the scenes picture of a bride getting dressed, but also great moment of kids reacting to the bride in her underwear.
Now that's access. And, I might add, invisibility. The photographer is nowhere to be seen in this photograph. Beautiful light (in a tough situation), framing (of the bride's face in the picture frame), moment and even color (mixed) all somehow work together. The bridesmaids in the background also add an interesting bit of storytelling as they rush around to take care of their responsibilities.
