My goal as your wedding photographer is to make this one aspect of the planning process simple. Photography is more than just images. It’s a real part of your day. Not only do you deserve beautiful images, you also deserve an amazing photographic experience! 

Your wedding day is an experience from beginning to end and your photography as a huge part of that experience. Shouldn't it be fun?! And enjoyable?! And natural?! I think so! My goal is to not only capture memories from my couples. It’s to create an experience that they will never forget. 

One way I ensure that my bride and groom‘s enjoy the best photographic experience possible is through forming a relationship with my couples. A bride and groom should connect with their photographer, trust their photographer, and be excited about the whole process with them. 

At the end of the day, your photographs are one of the few mementos you will have that truly show the raw, genuine and beautiful emotions of your wedding day. These moments will be captured forever, so that every time you look back on your images, it's like stepping back in time - back to one of the most beautiful and emotional moments of your life. 

The Experience

Your wedding photography experience is about your wedding day and every day after. It's about capturing the moments that bring tears to your eyes, so that you never forget what it was like to be living in that moment. It's about capturing the look when you see each other for the first time, so that future generations can feel, not just see, what it is like to be so in love.

The Investment

Your wedding photography experience begins at $1950

Once I have answered any questions you may have, it is time to get your date on my calendar! Yay! You can save your wedding date by signing your contract and paying your deposit. Then, you're all set!

Next, you'll get all the awesome goodies. All my couples receive a full Bridal Guide that includes tips for your wedding day, what to wear to your engagement session and loads of details on how to get the most out of your photography experience.

Step One: Reserve Your Date on my Calendar!

After booking, I love getting to know my couples through an engagement session that helps you warm up to the camera so that you are ready to go on your wedding day!

I always include engagement sessions as a complimentary part of my wedding experience. You will have a chance to get to know me, experience how I shoot, and handle posing and lighting. This session makes a huge impact on having the perfect flow on your wedding day.

Step Two: Your Engagement Session

Planning your timeline is an important part of having an amazing wedding day experience, and I am here to help! My experience in weddings gives me an advantage when creating your timeline so that I can help you get the most out of your wedding day. 

Over the years, I have helped create and modify many timelines to help my couples get the most out of their day and their photography coverage!

Step Three: Your Wedding Day Timeline

Now, we are on to the best part: your wedding day! Yay! You can relax and enjoy spending time with all of your loved ones, knowing that I have everything under control! 

From helping you into your dress, to family formals, to your friends and family dancing the night away, I will be there every step of the way! 

(This is the best part!)

Step Four: Your Wedding Day (Yay!)

Once your wedding day has passed, I begin editing and cataloging your images immediately. I know how important it is to have your wedding images back in a timely fashion, so I will be sending your gallery to you within six weeks of your wedding date, and a sneak peek within a week of your wedding.

You want your images to share with your friends and family while the excitement is still there and the memories are fresh in your mind, and I promise to have them to you as quickly as possible.

Step Five: The Final Delivery

Reviews

Kayla is amazing! She is everything you could want in someone involved with the wedding process which we all know can be stressful as things pile up. She is responsive, efficient, easy going, fun and affordable. Shooting our engagement photos with her felt effortless. We had never met Kayla before our shoot, but she instantly made us feel like old friends which made being on camera (which can feel awkward) very easy and comfortable. We had never really been in a photoshoot before, but she set up our poses perfectly and gave all the right cues to make sure we got an excellent variety of photos.

We used Kayla for videography and photography, and we can't thank her enough for the amazing job she did. I originally planned on a Spring engagement session and then stupidly forgot we'd need photos for the save the dates prior to that. At no additional cost Kayla suggested we get together for a few hours to take some photos that we could use. She never made me feel like it was inconveniencing her. The wedding day she was calm, professional, courteous and everything you'd want in a photographer. We got our photos back crazy fast, and have already seen a sneak peek of the video. We LOVE the photos and the video! We'd recommend her to everyone!

Kayla was absolutely amazing to work with. She was calm, fun, and professional throughout the whole day and even helped with little things while we were getting ready that I wouldn't have expected. She had a sneak peek ready less than a week after our wedding day and it blew me away. She captured so many important memories so beautifully and I am so happy we chose her to work with us on our wedding day. Thank you, Kayla!

Kayla shot our wedding and did an absolutely phenomenal job. We could not have picked anyone better to share our day with. Not only was she there the day of, she stayed in contact with me up until the wedding, including fielding my constant questions. I am an anxious person by nature so it made me feel better to have someone who I knew cared for me and my husband and wanted to give us the best wedding day possible

Kayla shot my wife and I's wedding in July and she was wonderful. She made all of us feel comfortable in front of the camera even me and my groomsmen which is not an easy task. she made our formal photos more fun and not as stressful. I have been in many weddings as a groomsman where the photographer made the formal photos painful but Kayla made everything so much more fun. If you are looking for an amazing wedding photographer who treats you like a friend, look no further than Kayla. I would recommend her to anyone!

When we started looking for a wedding photographer for our St. Louis wedding, we realized that there were tons of amazing photographers to choose from, but Kayla really stood out because of her sweet personality, attention to detail, and obvious care for her couples. From the moment we met her, she treated us like old friends and we could tell that she truly cared about us and wanted to give us the best experience possible. We are so thankful that we chose her as our wedding photographer. There is no one we would have rather had with us on our day!
