Hi! I'm Karen!! A little bit about ÉPS and me... 
I founded this business in Colorado in 2008 and as of 2015 I replanted in Colorado Springs. My photography career carried me to NYC for two years to be apart of the wedding industry in ways I couldn't have imagined. NY was so good but I missed that small town feel of C/S + my man. So here I am.

When I'm not taking photos, I'm likely welcoming people to our home to share food, stories and life. I thrive when I’m surrounded by the ones I love- while hosting friends new and old, and in the midst of exploring and adventuring all of that I can around me. I travel all over the map to photograph to keep myself on my toes but also to photograph our clientele. I want to meet you wherever you are both for the celebration and for the documentation. Please dig through the site and if you love what you see, I’d love to hear from you. I cannot wait to get to know you + document your story.

My name is Laura Klassen and I am a Canadian living in Colorado Springs. Making the move this way 2 years ago to marry the love of my life was the best decision to date! I ma obsessed with my two pups, Hank and Luna + Lattes, slow mornings, gardening, plants, travel and course, photography.

Photography has been a love of mine for many years. White growing up, I couldn’t put the camera down. I started tinkering with my dads old film and it hooked me, forever. Now, I shoot digital but I strive to offer the classical feel of film. I love the raw beauty of captureing a process- a moment between moments. The collision between love, people and nature is what makes me pursue photography. - lk
