Hi, I’m Kara

The Runaway Hearts is a photography project by Kara Riley. Kara has worked as a commercial and fashion photographer for the past five years, and has a background in Fine Arts and illustration.

The Runaway Hearts bloomed out of her love of capturing real people and their own lives, especially on their wedding days! It is for the dreamers, the non-traditionalists, the couples who aren't afraid to get messy and live in the moment with the one they love.

Kara specialises in analogue film photography, and is able to shoot your wedding on 35mm film and Super 8mm movies upon request. She is available for weddings, portraits, engagements, elopements, fashion and lifestyle projects.

Let's create beautiful, whimsical memories xoxo

My photography style

Here at The Runaway Heart’s, we are all about bright colours, soft happy hues, lovely pastels… if you are looking for dark and moody, that’s not me.

I have a background in fine arts, and bring my creative and artistic talents to my photography style. If you aren’t afraid of colour and cheerful tones, then I am the photographer for you! If you are after something extra special and a bit left of centre, then you are in the right place!
