Hi, I’m Kayla! I’m a wedding + elopement photographer from the beautiful city of Portland, OR. While I love a good trip to Salt & Straw and an occasional s’mores mocha from Water Avenue in the city, I also love getting out into nature with couples who are effortlessly in love. Photography has always been a huge passion for me and has pushed me to take risks, live freely, and pursue your passion. I thrive off of amazing people, inspiring destinations, and shooting from the heart. There’s nothing more important to me than capturing and celebrating the authenticity of a couple. Staying playful and candid are two aspects I feel extremely passionate about because I believe each person’s love is unique. These are the moments I live for because they’re the ones you can capture in an instant and cherish for years to come. I travel as much as I can, learning along the way, and I’d love to work with you and express your love story the best way I know how.

Based in Portland, OR

Kayla did an amazing job at shooting my boyfriend and I at the beach! Neither of us feel comfortable about being in front of a camera but she made us feel like there was nothing to worry about. She is able to find a simple moment between two people and turn it something beautiful. She was calm and courteous of us. Most importantly, she was very patient with us despite our lack of knowledge of how to pose or position ourselves in front of a camera. I was so happy with the results of our pictures!

We got our announcement/engagement photos taken by Kayla and were beyond thrilled with the results. She ran around in the pouring rain with us and still busted out the best photos ever! She was so much fun to work with and excelled at making us feel comfortable while shooting. After promptly editing our photos, my fiancé and I were over the moon with how amazing they came out. We can’t wait to print them and hang them up in our new home. We will definitely be booking a shoot with her again.

Kayla has worked with my boyfriend and I on multiple photoshoots. Little did we know, after only a few shoots and short conversations we would become great friends. For me, it’s important to have a photographer that both my boyfriend and I feel comfortable around. This shows in in the finished product because the pictures I have from her truly show our love in the way I want it to be portrayed.  They are so full of life, laughter and romance. Kayla has greatly contributed to our portfolio. We consider ourselves lucky to have worked with her.
