MEET KAYLA

Hi, I’m Kayla — I’m a fine art wedding photographer with a passion for capturing relationships in a way that showcases how they are naturally, effortlessly, and authentically.


Beyond wedding photography, I’m a sucker for the simple things in life. On my days off, you’re guaranteed to find me with my fiancé Stephen at the park throwing the ball for our dogs, Gus and Ollie, or on our couch in yoga pants in the middle of an endless Netflix marathon of The Office. I live for busy days spent hiking, and quiet evenings with the love of my life in front of a bonfire, just as much as I do for wild floral arrangements and father-daughter dances.

MY APPROACH

Beyond wanting to make you feel beautiful when you look back on all of your wedding images, I ultimately want to create wedding galleries that tell a full story of your day. From start to finish, your images will bring back all of the emotions that you experienced throughout the day in the same way I’m taken right back to the moment Stephen proposed with this image of us. I focus on building real friendships with my clients in order to capture their relationship in a way that is comfortable, relaxed, and completely free of any of that “awkwardness” that most people feel in front of the camera (myself included!)

I genuinely want all of my clients to feel as if I am a friend they have had forever, and that their wedding day isn’t going to be spent with just a hired hand. Instead, it will be spent with someone who wholeheartedly cares about them, their families, and the memories they are creating.

WHAT ARE PAST COUPLES SAYING?

I don’t know if I had ever experienced the feeling of true joy until our wedding day. But now, every time we look at our photos, that feeling comes rushing back. And, that is all thanks to you! I know we’ve said it a million times, but we mean it in the most grateful, heartfelt way each time: thank you. We are so thankful for your art, but beyond that, we are so thankful for your humour, your uplifting spirit, and how you never felt like a vendor, but you always felt like a friend. Hiring you is more than hiring a wedding photographer, it’s hiring someone who will change your life. We will cherish our photos forever. After 10 years together, that day is our favourite to date (obviously) and our photos are proof. We can’t wait to share them with our future family!

WHAT ARE PAST COUPLES SAYING?

Ah where to begin! We hired Kayla for our engagement photos and wedding day and we are so glad that we did. Kayla is not only a brilliant and talented photographer but also a kind-hearted and wonderful person. She pays attention to detail, makes you feel comfortable in your own skin and captures everything that makes you a couple! Looking through our pictures, sharing them with friends and family and having them on our walls in our home, helps us remember all the joy and emotion of that day. She truly is a master of her craft. Her photos are warm, light and capture the essence of the couple she is shooting. She was able to capture our wedding day and all its details so we could relive it again and again. We highly recommend Kayla and her work.

WHAT ARE PAST COUPLES SAYING?

Kayla came highly recommended to us from a friend, and for good reason. If you've seen her website or social media, you will know that her talent speaks for itself. Her photography is art.

What sets her apart from others in the business is her passion and approach. Kayla genuinely cares about her clients, taking time and extra effort to learn what is important to them. This ultimately translates into photo sessions that feel natural, effortless and authentic - no small feat, especially for people (like us) who are not overly comfortable in front of a camera.

Kayla was always available for questions (even if they weren't photo-related), open, honest and above all, just plain fun to be around. She is fountain of knowledge, and there are many elements of our wedding we would not have even thought about had it not been for her guidance. Kayla is a delight to work with, amazingly funny and we are so glad she was such an important part of our wedding experience. No regrets.

THANK YOU!

- Stefanie and Jeff
