Behind the Lens

I'm a hopeless romantic who finds great joy in creating and capturing connection wherever I go.

about us

I'm Kayla

My team and I are passionate about providing excellent experiences with each couple that we have the privilege to work with. With over 75 weddings photographed professionally, we know what it takes to capture your day authentically to you. We want you to look back on your photos and feel all the emotions that were felt   

Growing up as the oldest of 5 kids, I have learned to be flexible and to anticipate needs before they arise. Our goal is to serve you and your fianc√© not just by photography but throughout your wedding day itself. Like fairy god mothers we love to anticipate your needs before even spoken. From offering to hold your dress, bouquet or other items while walking to delivering your favorite drink to you during cocktail hour we want to make sure you are taken care of. We love nothing more than to provide an experience to remember.

my favorite things:


places i've been

Amalfi, Italy, with the North Shore of Oahu as a close second. I also love Zion, Utah... and anywhere in the PNW. 


guilty pleasure

Planning vacations to places I've never been for fun... even if it means I have to wait a few years for it to happen. 



Spending time reading, or evenings with my husband and two kittens.  



Salmon, Mashed Potatoes & a crisp white wine. (Cocktail hour? Margarita, please)



This guy. My husband, Zach. We've known each other since 6th grade and have been together for 8 years (married for almost 3!)


part of my job

That moment after the ceremony when my clients realize their forever starts right then.

about you

Aside from beautiful portraits, our clients value candids of their favorite people. We value that too.  

Your people matter to us. We make it a priority to not only capture your memories, but your people too. We want you to look back at your final wedding gallery and be able to see what is was like to experience your day from your guest's perspective. They were chosen to attend your wedding  for a reason and we want to make sure that it is documented. We value your people as we have a fierce love for the ones closest to us as well.
