I'm Kayla, a Hunter Valley based wedding photographer who gets a real kick out of documenting the realness and the closeness and the connection between two.  
 
I love weddings, I really do. I love the shift of focus, where friends and family momentarily stop their lives to celebrate yours.I love when people feel comfortable enough to be the most genuine, unapologetic version of themselves, because that’s where all the magic happens. Creating candid, romantic photography for couples is my jam. 
 
I think capturing special memories is a result of creating great experiences. I’m partial to making myself look like an idiot to see others smile, keeping conversation alive to make you feel comfortable and giving gentle direction, so you don’t have to guess what to do.

I'm a no bullshit kind of person, I say the first thing that comes to my mind and overthink it for the rest of the day. I like immature jokes, I show love through sarcasm and name calling yet I'm weirdly sensitive. I cry at the drop of a hat and seeing strangers happy brings me to tears. Your great step aunt Mildred could shed a tear and I'll hit the floor. It's a Cancer thing, we're a mess. 


 



MEET KAYLA

 I love the way style and design can shape the entire vibe of the day. I love when people feel comfortable enough to be the most genuine, unapologetic version of themselves, because that’s where all the magic happens. Creating candid, romantic photography for couples is my jam. 

My photography style is highly influenced by fashion, both magazines and history. I love the vintage feel of film and love incorporating that into each gallery I create. My work is the perfect mix of smooth modern edits and vintage film feels.
 



My approach to photographing couples is pretty relaxed. I like to let you do you, but I also love helping guide you through your day. Whether that be making timeline recommendations, helping with a bit of direction during your portrait session, or moving things along during family photos to stay on track. I'm pretty happy to be as involved as you need me to be, to keep things calm and fun.

The portrait session is an easy 20 minutes of walking. laughing, joking and as little or as much PDA as you're comfortable with. It's your show.

REAL WEDDING | MODUS MEREWETHER

Needless to say, I was sick with nerves on the day of the wedding (there's a lot that has to go right!), when Kayla turned up to shoot the grooms party those nerves quickly left and were filled with excitement. She has a great way of taking the photo's and making it even more a fun experience. Her photo's are INCREDIBLE. Worth every penny, we can't stop scrolling through them and we've only received the previews ha! Thank you so much Kayla you're a legend!

My husband (yay!) and I could not recommend Kayla from Luna Wilde more highly, we feel so honuored to have had her capture our wedding day. Right from the initial point of contact a natural, easy connection was formed. Kayla 100% understood our brief of natural, aesthetic, "not posed" photos and man did she deliver! The photos she has produced are beyond our wildest dreams. Kayla not only managed to capture amazing pictures of our wedding day, but she has captured all the emotion, fun and magic that it held. When we view our gallery we are transported back to not only what it looked like, but how it felt. Thank you Kayla for making our memories tangible, beautiful things we can hang on our wall and admire forever!

Kayla + Sean
