She sent us helpful planning documents to create a list of photos we definitely wanted, including the names and relationships of family and friends.

It was easy to communicate with Tracy via email and text whenever needed.

Our photos turned out excellent and we will cherish them forever.

We're looking forward to our one-year anniversary photo shoot!

I'd highly recommend working with Tracy if you need a photographer in Northern Michigan."

"Tracy is so nice. I am in the grand rapids area, and she is closer to traverse city, and we did photos in grand haven.

Not too much of a cost increase for the extra travel. She was able to work around some initial schedule issues me and my family had.

The photos turned out amazing, and she had them done faster then she had initially said they would be done.
I will for sure consider her again for family pictures."

She was great at directing us for different poses, and made both of us feel so comfortable.

Her turn around time for edits was so quick and very professional.

As a person in the LGBT community, it’s important for me to work with someone who would make my fiancé and I feel comfortable, and Tracy did exactly that.

She is awesome!"

"Beyond pleased with every aspect of our experience with KarunaPhoto for our wedding photography.

From the first point of contact all the way to the finished product, we couldn't be happier!

Extremely friendly, responsive, professional, flexible, and clearly cares about us as people--very obvious she doesn't view her clients as "just another job".

The photos Tracy captured were incredible and meaningful.

Would recommend very highly!"

Tracy captured the most incredible pictures at our wedding!!

She was so easy to work with and very responsive and detailed beforehand to make sure that she knew all of the pictures we wanted to get on the day of!

The day was hot and not to mention having to wear a mask the whole time but that didn't stop Tracy from doing her thing and being professional the whole time!!

Thank you again!!!

“I just want to let you know how much we adored the photos – they’re absolutely amazing, and we’re so grateful to you for capturing our special day!
The one we used at our bigger celebration had so many compliments, I had multiple people come up to me and say that it looked like it came right out of a bridal magazine.
The picture we chose really illustrated your eye for balance and how your work truly reflects your artistic talent.
I had no idea you’d taken pictures beyond the usual portraits, and I have to say, those candid shots from the “Enjoying the Day” section were a delightful surprise. You made us all feel at ease the entire time, and we’re super happy we found you to document our big day.
Thanks a million for everything." ~Elizabeth

"Every time I’ve needed a professional photographer, I’ve used Tracy at KarunoPhoto...

And every time I’ve been blown away by the quality of the photos.

This latest time was for portraits for my company. She helped me find the location that was perfect for my needs.

Her ability to capture beautiful moments is truly a gift. And she’s so laid back and fun. I can’t wait to work with her again!"

Susie Grace, Owner of
"We had an amazing wedding, overlooking the traverse city bay.
Things went a mile a minute, and Tracy was right alongside. She was there prior to the event getting a whole bunch of shots, she was there getting all the shots Ashley requested and stayed till Ashley was certain she had all the pictures she wanted.

Tracy went through a checklist as a final assurance.
She’s top-notch she kept her cool, was punctual, very professional, and personable with our guests.
My wife and I are camera shy but Tracy helped us through that and made it easy and natural to take pictures, we had a prior photo shoot to relax our nerves and she taught us how to be ourselves in front of a camera.

The final product was amazing, we’ve printed a lot of pictures (even large canvas, because of quality and capturing the moment) to put in our house and have an eccentric keepsake forever. We’ll definitely be getting pictures from Tracy again!
Thank you Tracy for capturing our memories."

Booked a last minute event with her for our organization. She went above and beyond.

We needed headshots and even photos and she made it all work! The photos are BEAUTIFUL!
My board loves them.
Can't wait to use them on the website! She even did a couple of joke 90s photos for us! I was worried about the headshots and she made me feel comfortable, we had fun, and I'm so pleased with how they all turned out!"

"We've worked with Tracy several times and she's now our family photographer as well as our photographer for our small business.

She's always a joy to work with in terms of her wonderful personality (always happy and smiling), her professionalism and flexibility, and her wonderful eye for photography.

We run a farm so things do NOT always go as planned and she's always so easy to work with for last-minute changes, both in scheduling and also changing things up for a shoot to make it work for us.

We appreciate her so much and highly recommend her to any and all looking for a wonderful photographer."

The night of, she was fantastic - neither my husband nor I are huge fans of being in photos, but she made us feel comfortable and was so easy to work with. We couldn't be happier with our photos.
Thank you!"

a couple in grey suit and emerald velvet green dress looking at the camera walking in deep snow"Tracy is fantastic.
She’s an absolute sweetheart and very professional in her field of work.

We needed engagement photos taken and I had a particular vision of how I wanted them to turn out and Tracy exceeded that expectation.

She went over and beyond for us that includes hiking through 2 feet of snow, hopping a fence, and watching us dig out our truck.

Most importantly she captured more than poses and smiles but she captured real-life moments that we ourselves can’t see and that we will be able to share for many many years."

“Zach and I did an engagement shoot of sorts with KarunaPhoto. Our original plans were dashed due to weather, so we ended up at our favorite place to play pool instead. Thank you so much to my mom (Tracy) for taking time to do this for us. You made us feel comfortable even though kissing and being lovey-dovey in front of a parent could've been awkward. We had such a great time and the pictures are perfect! “ ~Sarah GSarah + Zach

“We very much enjoyed working with you!
We had no hesitations as we had seen your work on your website and in other publications.
It was great to have the engagement photo session with the same photographer as our wedding. It allowed us to get comfortable with you and get to know your style prior to our wedding day.
We are very happy with our photos and loved how laid back the whole day felt!”

She sees the artistic side in everything. I wanted mostly candid shots for our wedding and that’s exactly what we got plus a little bit more.
She spends the time to get to know you and it shows in her work. Lots of sentimentality and attention to detail.
I highly recommend her!"

"Tracy was incredibly accommodating and SO easy to work with. She did an incredible job capturing the important moments of our engagement and wedding photos and made it feel so natural.

She was very professional, yet she knew how to make it fun while still making sure she got the photos that she needed.

The quality of the photos are second to none, and the way they were organized within the app was unbelievable.

Her process is top notch and we would highly recommend her to anyone!"

I found Tracy on the web by chance when I was looking for photographer for my wedding in Charlevoix... and I have told her so many times how happy I am that I found her!
Our experience with Tracy from beginning to end was wonderful. She is so personable, talented, professional, honest, and made us feel special and unique.
We were looking for a more natural look for our wedding and she really delivered.
She made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera (we do not do photography well) and our pictures are AMAZING.

I would recommend Tracy and Karuna Photo to anyone for whatever life experience they are looking to document.
Anastasia & Maxwell
woman standing in a purple background shop with a lenord skynard tshirt and black boho hat"I've had the pleasure of working with several photographers for my business and personal life over the last 20 years.
Working with Tracy was extremely pleasing. It was comfortable- and the moments when I was being too stiff or simply not myself, she noticed and assisted me in relaxing - having fun, even.

What's more, I really got into the felt-sense of what I hoped to convey to my audience & potential clients.

Tracy made sure in advance that she knew what I was trying to create and she nailed it.

I knew she did good work from viewing her images online - but I was surprised by how deeply and artistically she was able to capture my multi-faceted essence.
I recommend Karuna Photo - I'll definitely be calling on Tracy again for our family photoshoot and beyond."
"We had the most fun and relaxing time! Tracy was professional yet laid-back and totally open to suggestions.
We appreciated how she wanted to know ahead of time what our daughter liked and tried to incorporate those things in the shoot.
Tracy was also extremely efficient in getting our pictures ready even before the promised timeframe. I highly recommend Tracy!"
Tracy photographed The Redheads Cafe and Tasting Room for us and did a great job!

Not only did she produce beautiful photos of our food, restaurant, and staff members, she was also so easy and so much fun to work with!

She was professional, friendly, laid back, and put everyone at ease. Her creative eye is on point.

She worked around us working and got some great candid shots of the staff, customers, and cafe.

She was also pretty quick. The shoot didn't take nearly as long as we had expected. She was also quick on getting the photos back to us.

We loved working with Tracy and will definitely work with her again! Thanks!

I couldn't be happier that we found Tracy to be our Photographer.

She is such a thoughtful, kind person who has a deep passion for her art. From our first meeting, to receiving the USB with our wedding photos, she has been nothing but professional, timely in her communication, and above- and - beyond helpful.

Our wedding photos are INCREDIBLE!

Tracy really captured the love and happiness that surrounded the day.

Thank you Tracy!

I will never choose anyone else for my photos.

Tracy truly does the most amazing job, from her techniques, to her you're with family vibes!
She did my high school photos as a young lady, and now as a woman and mom, I called upon her for my wedding and family photos.

I must say I am completely stunned by the results! She turned our memories that fade into gorgeous captured photos that will always stay!

I am in love with her work !

Tracy took the photos for my yoga studio - New Moon Yoga.
They turned out beautifully!! I am so happy with the warmth and depth of color she captured.

I was nervous about photos of myself...but Tracy's confidence, skill and kind, fun & genuine personality put me at ease:) She moves quickly with clear tips and cues so that I didn't even have time to get nervous.

I had a collection of finished photos very quickly and could begin getting them up online right away. Highly recommend her expertise & creative eye!
