Let's Get Down to Business...

Read my philosophy >

What I truly want to serve you with are photographs that transport you back to the feeling you had in the moment they were taken. Those moments that are unplanned and unposed- like when you're announced for the first time, or when you hear your baby giggle. Where you aren't necessarily thinking, but you're FEELING. Of course you'll get the "look at me and smile" shots (the ones for grandma!), but I want you to experience the moment while I take care of the rest.

biggest moments

I don't even know where to begin. Kaila was absolutely incredible. Not only are every single one of our photos stunning and better than I could have imagined, but she was also so much more than just a photographer. She was my hype-girl, voice of reason, therapist, basically a bridesmaid, and thought of absolutely everything. She was the calming presence that we all needed that day. The whole wedding party has not stopped talking about how much they all loved her. She truly felt like a friend. She was there to support us 100% and went above and beyond. She made our wedding perfect.

BOOK HER! Let me tell you - The entire day she was nothing but helpful, caring and assertive. Every single photo I have seen from our day honestly moves me to tears because of the quality of the moments that she captured. I am so thankful that we had her and her husband (talk about a dream team) capture our day. I promise you, if you're struggling to find a photographer who's not only incredibly talented, but kind and joyful - look no further!

"Kaila is one of the most genuine, awesome and talented people I've ever met. It was fate that I chose to contact her among hundreds of local photographers on the knot. She was both a professional photographer and friend on our wedding day. I'm recommending her to everyone I know. She's extremely relatable, fun, and carefree all while capturing spectacularly beautiful moments at precious times. She's just the best."


"Kaila was an absolute DREAM to work with. She took absolutely breathtaking photos of my husband and I, our wedding party, and every special moment we had that day. I not only consider Kaila our photographer, but our friend. She was there every step of the way leading up to the wedding and made sure our special day was perfect. I can't thank her enough for being the amazing person and photographer that she is. If you don't know who to choose as your wedding photographer, I will make it easy for you and say that you should without a doubt choose Kaila. Thank you so much Kaila!"

-Jaime & Daniel

"Kaila never faltered and was a source of rock-steady poise throughout everything. She did everything she said she was going to do when she said that she was going to do it. I never had to worry about her reliability or her professionalism during our work relationship - when everything else was going to pieces, it was nice to know that we could always count on her. Kaila's workflow is excellent as well - all of the contractual details were managed online with clear, easy to understand language and immediate, "always on" accessibility. The entire process was so convenient and easy."


"Kaila did an absolutely spectacular job with our wedding photos. This was the service I was most anxious about when wedding planning because I had such high expectations however she went above and beyond...She truly is SO talented. I cannot recommend her enough. Every photo took my breath away and 4 months later, I still look at them all the time. If you're as stressed about choosing a photographer as I was, look no further. She truly captured memories of our wedding day that I'll look fondly on forever."

-Mikayla & Matt  

"Kaila is THE BEST! She was an absolute dream to work with, and I now consider her a friend. On my wedding day, she helped to keep me calm and was so fun to have by my side throughout the day. I could not recommend her enough!"

-Kaylie & Nick
