I'm Kayla Esparza!!!! I'm a Seattle Washington Wedding Photographer ready to capture your day exactly as I see it! I'm your loud, joyful, take charge gal who basically wants you to feel like your bestie is behind the camera on your wedding day! My goal is to make all my couples (no matter who you love, or what you look like) feel every moment that happened on their forever days. My mission is to spread love, have fun, capture every moment happy or sad, encapsulate the moments you had no idea was happening, and deliver you a final gallery that you can look back on for years and years to come. I love being a Seattle Washington Wedding Photographer but just because I serve in the PNW doesn't mean not down to travel for any couple who vibes with my work. I'm not only a Seattle Washington Wedding Photographer but I'm a triple threat as a mother & wife too. I seriously cannot wait to get to know you, and hear all about your dream day.

"Kayla is the BEST photographer ever! She is first off, SUCH a lovely human who is so caring and fun and is clearly passionate about what she does. She FAR exceeded all of our hopes and dreams for our unique wedding. She brings such a bubbly energy, and really knows what she is doing. I feel like I've known her for years and she is a close friend, which makes capturing the images feel so effortless and fun. She brought true joy to the experience, and our family, bridal party, and friends all commented on how incredible she and her husband Truth are. WHAT A DREAM TEAM! KAYLA IS THE BEST, book her you will be SO pleased and surpass your own expectations! WE LOVE KAYLA AND TRUTH!!!!!! You will want them to be your friends for life after you work with them. Such dedication, and they truly listen and prioritize YOU and what you want to get out of the photos and what you want captured and have their own talented magical eye for it all. AHH SO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!! My heart is bursting from these gorgeous photos. ALSO SHE TOOK SO MANY!!!! We are THRILLED! My only regret is not booking Kayla for our engagement session!!!!!! IF ONLY. BOOK HER FOR EVERYTHING! Seriously, such an amazingly talented and kind and fun loving human who will take a shot of tequila with you and eat sour gummies with you and FEEL LIKE YOUR BFF WHO YOU HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN!"

"One of the biggest things that stood out to me about Kayla right away was the fact that she truly wanted us to feel like she was our friend behind the camera. Both my husband and I really loved that, and we definitely felt like she succeeded! Not only is Kayla extremely talented and creative, but she’s so fun to work with and she genuinely knows how to bring out the best in anyone. I’m not exaggerating when I say that all of my friends adored her and made comments about it to me throughout the wedding day, and for LITERALLY WEEKS after! Both friends and relatives alike were raving to us about how awesome Kayla and Truth were, so I can tell how much their energy, talent, and the sheer joy that they bring truly did impact the day for everybody— as well as the photos!!! The photos we received are BREATHTAKING beyond our wildest dreams, and we’re so insanely overjoyed. What an amazing experience with wonderful people. We’re forever grateful to Kayla + Truth for the most phenomenal photos and for helping to make our day so perfect!"

"We hired Kayla after we saw her amazing work she did on my best friends engagement photos. I saw the prints and immediately knew I wanted to work with Kayla. From the beginning to our final gallery Kayla was a joy to work with. She was extremely thorough, stuck to the timelines, and was so fun. Capturing your big day is a big deal, you have these photos/videos for the rest of your life! Having a photography/videography team you can trust and makes you feel at ease is a huge plus. Kayla checked all our boxes and then some! If you are thinking of booking her don't think, book her team! Her talent and skill is unmatched!"

"I'm gonna need more space than just this text box to tell you how amazing Kayla is!!!!! I cannot recommend Kayla enough. We first met Kayla when she took our Engagement Photos and both Robert and I knew before we even saw the photos that we needed to have Kayla as our wedding photographer too. Kayla has a way of making you feel so comfortable and not awkward at all in front of the camera! She is so much fun and always prompt, responsive, and amazing at what she does!! She not only was my wedding photographer, but I felt like she was my day-of wedding organizer too! She was there to hold my lip gloss, my phone, and she kept us on track, all while making sure we had a great time! I had a few requests for photo spots, etc and she did not hesitate to make sure we did whatever I wanted. We even had a change in the timeline on the day of the wedding, and it did not phase her at all. She was happy to go with the flow and make it all work. Robert and I have found a friend in Kayla, and also our photographer for all of our big life moments from now on!

"Kayla and her team were fabulous. We hired them for a full service package including our full wedding day and engagement photos and I cannot say enough good things. Not only is she extremely talented but she has the ability to make you feel super relaxed and create a fun lighthearted environment that makes being in front of a camera feel much more natural. She is also ridiculously fun to have around, it is like having another friend at your wedding. Her photos speak for themselves, and are just beyond words beautiful, I would pick her as our photographer over and over again if I had to go back. Thank you Kayla!!!!"

"Kayla, Kayla, Kayla. I stumbled across Kayla’s photography IG and showed my then fiancée and we were instantly captivated. We never “shopped” for other photographers, or debated the cost - because even without speaking to her, the quality of her work, photos and editing all spoke for themselves. Thennnn, getting to know her was just the cherry on top. My husband and I, like many people I am sure - do not consider ourselves to be camera people. I never once thought about the fact that Kayla had a camera in her hand the entire day, because we were so comfortable around her & that makes the biggest difference. Our photos are natural and captured us, our friends and our family perfectly. We receive compliments on our wedding photos quite often due to her unique editing style. I beyond recommend her services as well as her for any wedding, or styled shoot you may have in mind."

"KAYLA!!! Ah - I don’t think there are enough words to accurately describe this girl & her talent. We found each other on Instagram, connected over our mutual love of photography, & I’ve trusted no one else to document my life’s big moments since then. Kayla has photographed me & my husbands engagement photos, wedding, anniversary photos, just because, holiday photos, you name it she’s photographed it for me. It is so clear to see she has the biggest passion/heart for photography, but first, people. I’ve never met anyone with a bigger heart for people than her. She’s brings out the best in people & captures that in her work. She always makes us feel so comfortable/at ease..her guidance throughout sessions makes things flow naturally. Every time I get a gallery back from her, I see me & my husbands relationship...I truly see US. She’s hilarious, SO easy to be around & it never feels like we’re “getting our pictures taken” but just more like we’re hanging with our sweet friend. Anyway - I could go on FOREVER about this girl but before this gets too long: hire Kayla. Sure, there are a million options out there for photography, but there’s only one Kayla. I’ll continue to choose her, trust her, hire her, a million times over! ♥️"

"Can we just take a minute to appreciate this CREATIVE QUEEN? ✨ You will not be disappointed hiring her to capture your moments with your family! Kayla was quick to respond and answered any questions we may have including a guide that helped you figure out what to wear and exactly where the photos were taking place! (which most of us all struggle with trying to figure out what will coordinate well together!) Let’s just talk about the VIBE she had during her sessions too?! My fiancé is not one for pictures but after the session mentioned how fun it was and how he felt comfortable. The photos turned out EXACTLY what I had hoped for. I look forward to doing more sessions with her in the future. For sure our new family photographer. 🤩 THANK YOU SO MUCH"

"Kayla and Truth are both truly amazing human beings! My husband and I felt so comfortable and at ease with them. We also had such a blast taking photos / filming. There were many laughs to go around and you can tell they both really love what they do. The photo and video quality is absolutely fantastic and their easy going yet clear direction took the pressure off our shoulders so we could enjoy the evening. Thank you both so much for making our wedding day so great! We're filled with so much gratitude and will cherish the photos + film for the rest of our lives."

"First of all we just need to say that we absolutely LOVE Kayla and her team! They are THE people you want shooting the most important day of your life. From our first meeting up to our wedding day Kayla was on it. She answered every single question we had and even provided planning tools to help out in anyway she could, all with the most enthusiasm as if it were her wedding. Kayla’s associate photographer, Leah Dawson, did the photography for our wedding and she was so awesome, fun, and professional! She made us feel SO comfortable in front of the camera and captured our chemistry to a tee! Within the week we got our sneak peeks which was so special and exciting! The weddings photos were just incredible, we still have no words 😭 We are truly grateful for all the work Kayla and her team put into capturing our magical day! We love you so much and cannot recommend you enough!"

"I found Kayla while I was looking for photographers for our wedding on Instagram and oh my gosh I am so glad I found her! We booked her for both our engagement session and our wedding. We just got our photos done for our engagement session at Mount Rainier and they were absolutely stunning! These photos are everything we hoped and dreamed of! The day we were supposed to get our photos done, it was a little cloudy and the clouds covered Rainier the whole day. However, after we did our first location of photos, I suggested another location and Kayla was more than happy to oblige us. It was a small little hike to get to this location but Kayla was so accommodating and was happy to follow us. When we got the the other location, the clouds parted for just enough time to take our photos and the results came out sooooo perfect! I cannot say enough good things about Kayla. Highly recommend her for all your photography needs! She makes you feel so comfortable and will definitely be your hype woman and communication was great! Highly recommend her! 10/10! Not to mention the fact that the she got us our gallery in record time! Can't wait for her to take our wedding photos :)"
