Sammi & Mike

She captured us so well- our essence and our love.”

The shoot was a dream. We had so much fun and she made us feel comfortable while we took shots on the beach and IN the ocean. Truly, we can't recommend her enough.

Kayla took the photos for my skincare line, and I couldn’t be happier.

"She was professional from start to finish, and her vision was completely aligned with mine. Her style is beautiful and artistic."

Brooke & Josh

Our photos were STUNNING and she made us feel extremely comfortable throughout the entire day.”

We're in awe at how she captured so many emotions from our friends and family during our day that we weren't able to see in the moment, and we love all of the shots!
