You're ready to ditch the big wedding and run off the two of you, or plan a super intimate ceremony & reception with the closest people to your hearts. I'M FREAKIN' THERE. Theres nothing I love more than intentional couples who plan their day EXACTLY how they want -- ditching all those traditions, and making some of their own.

"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!

- Robert & Shanley

"In a word, we feel blessed to have hired Kayla as our photographer. Blessed that she was available on short notice, blessed to have received the best photos we could've asked for, and blessed to have gained an amazing friend. Kayla did an incredible job removing the stress that comes with hiring a photographer. Her experience is unmatched and, trust me, she knows exactly what you want before you do. She filled our day with joy and helped set the tone of the wedding with a bright smile and effortless conversation. Our wedding day would not have been the same without Kayla Esparza!! I don't know how else to describe it other than we felt like we had known Kayla our entire lives. She is goofy, personable, and makes you feel at ease. Being in front of a camera can definitely be nerve-wracking on THE BIGGEST day of your life in front of someone you've only met via facetime, but with Kayla it felt like we were just chatting and enjoying the best day of our lives with a friend. We truly felt calm and LOVED the whole day. It never felt like she was posing us - she kept it authentic and natural. She captured our day and raw emotion perfectly. I am in awe of this woman! She has a talent for photography and loving people so well!

- Christian & Holland

"Oh my goshhhhhh!!! Kayla was the absolute best to work with. To be extremely honest, she was our favorite vendor (am I allowed to say that? Lol). She was extremely patient, made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, showed us her fun and care-free personality, and is the mosttttt thoughtful photographer everrr! She allowed us to be us and that was the best part. She captured sweet moments that I hope I’ll never forget on our wedding day. We will forever cherish her amazing work!!  Hire this woman and her team ASAP!!!! I tell all my friends to hire Kayla because of her beautiful work but mostly her fun personality. When i met kayla, it was like I knew her for decades. She not only made our wedding day go so smooth, but she made sure she took care of the details beforehand and organized EVERY picture we wanted. She really took the time to get to know us and understand our vision. I cry actual tears when I get to relive moments that I can’t even remember from my favorite day. The day moves so fast and I’m so grateful that we hired such an intentional and thoughtful photographer."
