First off, my name is Karlee and I am sooo excited you made it here!! Yay! A little about me... I am an easy-going, adventure-seeking person. My heart desires traveling, hiking, a good tear jerking book, and lighthearted friends. I am married to my high school sweetheart who I started dating sophomore year of high school. We have 2 crazy german shepherds who are way too spoiled. We also welcomed our sweet little boy, Finnley, into the world in July 2023. I spend my free time throwing on a whole concert for my son. My specialty is wheels on the bus if anyone was wondering. If I am not performing a concert, I am probably watching a rom-com or reading a book and drinking an iced coffee. What can I say, I love love. No shame.

My husband and I eloped in Sedona, AZ on April Fools in 2021.

In photography, my ultimate focus is to capture authentic candid moments throughout the most beautiful day of your life. I focus a lot on details and moments that will come and go within a blink of an eye. I think about your loved ones and the photos that you will have wished you had of them one day. Photos are timeless and moments are unfortunately not and you can never get the moment back after it is gone. This is why I have such a passion for photography because although the moment is lost in time, we can still relive the moments through photos.


This might be like a shocker (you know with me being a wedding photographer) but I am a huge sucker for a good love story whether it be a movie, show, book or real life. This is why I love to photograph couples the most, specifically weddings and elopements. I mean they are real life love stories and man do I love to see a happy ending. From the very first message I get from you, I will be rooting for your love story. It does not stop after we are finished working together, I will continue to root you on from the sidelines. I am a firm believer that you should connect with your photographer. You aren't just a client to me, you are a friend and I will be there for you every step of the way hyping you up, fixing your train, bringing you a drink; anything you need on the most important day of your life.

"Karlee did an AMAZING job. We couldn’t have asked for better. She gave us multiple locations to choose from, made booking easy, took time with us, was very sweet and made it a fun experience. The photos didn’t feel awkward or staged at all and were absolutely gorgeous. The price was also very reasonable. I would pay a lot more for the quality of photos that were taken. I would recommend Karlee Searcy Photography 100%! Thank you Karlee!"

"Karlee is absolutely amazing! We had a family session with her and I am so pleased with our photos. Photo quality is phenomenal, communication was great, and we received our pictures back much faster than expected!

…and not to mention she put up with our cranky 3 year old!

I definitely recommend Karlee for your photography needs!"
