Springfield Illinois Photographer - Kari Bedford Photography

The latest news and galleries from Kari Bedford Photography


Kari (Abate) Bedford has been a Springfield, Illinois based photographer since 1999. She loves unexpected hugs from her daughters, her husband’s curly hair, traveling for weeks with her family, movies that start with footage from a car, inappropriate laughter and the phrase, “Dinner is ready.” She is a staunch supporter of human rights, individual dreams and dark chocolate. She talks too much, laughs at her own jokes and still cries at weddings. When she isn’t chasing people around with a camera, she is roasting marshmallows over a campfire with her family, adding to the pile of books on her nightstand, tripping over thin air, performing music with her songwriter hubby and generally, following her heart. She wishes everyone could be as blessed and is grateful for every crazy day.

    You took a pic of my husband and me at the Springfield Parks Gala. It is the best picture we have had taken in years. I would like to get a couple of 5 X 7’s if possible. Could you let me know if we can and how much they would be?
