Karyn is the talented owner of Karyn Johnson Photography who recently moved from Hampton Roads, Virginia all the way to Louisville, KY. Ready to work with brides in her new community, Karyn sought my help to rebuild a brand that would communicate a photographic style that is lovely, inviting and natural.
- Unify brand image
- Create efficient client workflows
- Showcase high-end photography portfolio
- Highlight Karyn’s quirky and fun-loving style
The Logo Design:
The logo style for Karyn Johnson Photography is a hand-drawn custom letterings that mix feminine script and masculine letters in all caps. The lettering was a strategic decision to communicate Karyn’s quirkiness and unique wedding photography style. This rebranding project also included a secondary logo with a rustic leaf wreath and Karyn’s new business location.
In our market research, we discovered Karyn’s new community in Louisville, KY has a strong population of young adults ages 21-34. With the understanding that many of Karyn’s brides will be younger than the national average, we strategically designed Karyn’s brand to have a lot of life, color, and youthfulness.

The Website Design:
The largest hurdle in this rebranding project was moving Karyn’s website from Squarespace to WordPress. There are many pros and cons to each of these website platforms…we’ll discuss that in another post later…we decided that WordPress was the best-suited platform for Karyn’s needs business and personal needs.
There are so many wonderful features about Karyn Johnson Photography’s new website! Here are few of my favorite design features:
