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.
Getting married in the Hunter Valley or worldwide?
I wanna come!
I'm big on making sure we're a good fit for each other, investing in your photographer is a big decision, I want to fully understand your vision and deliver the images of your dreams, working together to create tangible memories you'll look back on over your lifetime.
The questions you answered in your enquiry form were designed to help me understand your needs and priorities, to create an experience that solves your problems and calms your nerves, leaving only the good bits of the wedding planning journey.
Based on your priorities, we’ll build a timeline together. Something that covers all the important stuff but allocates plenty of time for fun things too. (No, you don’t have to miss out on cocktail hour.) (Please, PLEASE, don’t miss out on cocktail hour.) Using your colour palette and design, I’ll help you find ways to let your personal style and relationship traits feature in your day with a mix of contemporary and old school ideas. I’ll make sure you get time with everyone you love and I’ll be there to capture the special interactions between you, too.
You've got 12 months of wedding planning ahead of you, where do you even start? What comes next?
I'm here to make the whole process feel like a holiday, a super steamy one in the Greek Islands kinda holiday.
I can't wait to chat more about what you have planned. If you have any more questions or want to chat a little further, I'm here for ya!
Whether you want me to inconspicuously lurk in the shadows, snapping candid shots or be right up the front, rounding everyone up for group photos, I'll be the chameleon you need on the day. Either way, I'll be behind the lenses, not missing a beat.
Hand on heart, every ounce of my energy will go towards creating a gorgeous collection of images to forever memorialize your day. When you look through the photos memories will come to life and it'll be as though you're right there doing it all over again.
Shoot me an email and let's get this party started
