“I had the chance to shoot with Karla when I was 8 months pregnant and I can not say enough amazing things about this beautiful soul. Her genuine and beautiful heart shines through her work and her creative eye and unique style make her photos second to none. She recently took pics of my newborn baby girl and I never imagined she could again exceed my expectations as the bar is so high with her work and attention to detail. She is warm and kind and professional – and delivers the finished product unbelievably fast. I have modeled for years and Karla is one of the best. You will not regret working with her.”

“Loved the experience and the photos! She was willing to come out of town and really spent a lot of time getting to know us first; creating a Pinterest board to share ideas and communicating regularly leading up to the session. We got our photos back quickly and they look amazing!”

“I wanted to take a different and more creative approach when it came to my senior portraits, and Karla Bravo Photography caught my eye because of the way she brings out beauty by empowering woman and creating art, not just snapping pictures. I have always enjoyed the art of photography, and Karla made my true potential of a model shine with every collection of pictures. Karla made me feel very comfortable, beautiful, and I had so much fun. She is an expert and true professional at what she does. She understands about what perspectives make a picture stand out, and as a result her passion for what she does also shows.

I would recommend anyone and everyone to get pictures done by Karla Bravo because of the unforgettable experience I had, and because every picture is unique and different. Photography for every event!”

“I live locally on Kauai and contacted Karla about doing a photo session. It was so much fun! I had never modeled in the Boudoir style before, but I had seen Karla’s work and was confident. The photos she took blew my expectations away!

The atmosphere of her studio was warm and welcoming. She was very professional and made me feel at ease.
I think every women should get photos done by Karla because she captures the essence of beauty in a woman.
Sexy & tasteful photography!”

“I found Karla online when I wanted to do a Boudoir shoot for my soon-to-be-husband as we were staying abstinent before marriage and I wanted to get him something to look forward to. I had never done anything like this, not even a photoshoot with family, and am not very comfortable with my body. When I met Karla, she was so professional and welcoming. I was extrememly comfortable immediately in my own skin. It was a liberating experience. Her photo’s came out more than amazing. We had another engagement photography session that day with anoether photographer and I still regret to this day not using Karla Bravo!!”

“I arrived on Kauai knowing I wanted pictures to help me remember the experience. After speaking with Karla on the phone, I felt comfortable proceeding with the shoot. Before I flew out to Kauai, she called me to ask me what kind of pictures I had in mind, what props, locations I might like, etc. When we met the day of the shoot, she took me to a secluded beach where my favorite picture from that entire trip was shot, and it wasn’t even a shot that was planned! She was not only encouraging and supportive, but was open to shots that are a little more untraditional. I wanted sexy pictures but not Playboy centerfold posters, and the pictures came out tasteful and classic, exactly what I wanted.

The boudoir pictures also turned out to be seductive and beautiful. When people see the pictures, which I have used as my Facebook profile pictures, they are amazed and always ask who took the pictures. Not only did Karla listen to the ideas for the theme I had in mind, I loved how she took me to various locations to make the shoot personalized. I also contacted her several times since the shoot and she always responds promptly, as my satisfaction was important to her. I already have a couple people who want to hire her if she ever comes to San Francisco. If she did live here, I would work with her again. Plus, Kristi, who did my hair and make up, understood the look I was going for (which was natural) and in my pictures, the make up complimented my skin rather than detract from it. I loved every minute of my experience.”

“After viewing her work online and by speaking to others who had their photos taken by Karla, I decided to book a photo shoot. During the shoot, she made me feel beautiful, sexy, and confident! She has an awesome personality and she conducted the photo shoot with such professionalism. She got the photos to me in a timely manner and I was blown away!  I couldn’t believe it was me.  I gave a Boudoir book to my husband for Fathers Day which he loved!  I highly recommend every woman who wants to take sexy, yet tasteful, photos to book a session with Karla.”

“I sat for a boudoir session and was apprehensive at first because of the scantily clad nature of the session and because it was my first time attempting to model; However, from the moment I was welcomed into the room/set by Karla, my apprehension ceased. She is so easy to work with and made me feel so comfortable with her wonderful directions and positive feedback. Leaving the session, I felt like we were old friends. After only a short time, I got the pictures back and WOW!! I’m such a harsh critic of myself in photos, but her shots were so beautiful and creative!! I loved them all so much and I am so happy I got up the courage to do this!! The experience was wonderful!!
I would recommend her to everyone for any type of professional photography you want/need done and I’m definitely booking her again!!”
