Hi and thanks for visiting!
I'm Karen Beckman an Adelaide based Portrait and Wedding Photographer and I have enjoyed and loved photography since in my teenage years. I'm proud to say since going solo with Champagne Portraits in 2000, I still love to strive for that perfect shot... it's that shot that leaves you breathless and hits you with a 'Wow!!"
Early on, I had great grounding working for some Commercial & Fashion Photographers in Sydney as an Assistant processing and printing their black and white films as a darkroom technician.
I have captured on film so many wonderful people through events and special occasions since then... (plus I moved to Adelaide, married a top bloke, and had 2 fantastic daughters!) Working as a Photographer has been a truly amazing line of work and I look forward to every new job that comes my way with the same enthusiasm and spark that I held right from the beginning.
I have been a Nikon girl for years and I admit it was hard making the change to digital around 2008, but I really would not be without the versatility of digital and photoshop now! I am based South of Adelaide in Port Noarlunga and have so many beautiful Fleurieu locations on my doorstep, and a small home studio as well.
Travelling is not an issue.... please consider my services if arranging a Wedding outside of Adelaide - eg. Kangaroo island, South East, Barossa, Riverland, Yorke Peninsular & Clare. I can offer an obligation free personalised quote to include a small travel fee.
