Climbing and chasing waterfalls while the sun sets behind the mountain and the snow falls in the river. Chatting with locals while we sip our coffee and head out for the next adventure. Morning coffee and reading the newspaper together, the cool fall breeze blowing through the window as you pour yourself another cup. Rose and fireflies dancing in the spiderwebs. Talking for hours and dozing off with the tv on. The record skips a few times and we pick a new song to fall asleep to.

“Not only did she capture every special moment, she went above and beyond getting my previews, helping me decorate, coordinating the whole shindig, and so much more. I can’t begin to express the true beauty and emotion of the day that she was somehow able to capture in photo and video. We have multiple photos printed in our house now, and a beautiful book of photos on display to look at as often as we’d like! There was not one photo that I wish she would’ve captured, and I ended up with so many that I didn’t even know I wanted or needed!”

“Overall experience was 10/10. Kayla did a great job keeping the line of communication open throughout the whole transaction. She made real attemps to share the vision of what we wanted out of our day and photo’s. Her and Truth’s really brought a laid back vibe to our day but at the same time reassured us our photos would come out amazing! At one point Kayla physically got into the ocean to get some amazing shots, one of which we plan to use for our Thank You’s. Truth even got close to the water for good video footage in WHITE VANS, one big wave could’ve destroyed those and left him with soggy socks the rest of the night. Talk about dedication!”

“Shooting with Kayla Esparza is like hanging out with your bestie and casually getting some pictures. She is the easiest person to get along with but is also extremely professional and that’s why we love her. She knows all the poses so you don’t looked posed in front of the camera. Jake and I are not the most photogenic people but all of our shoots with Kayla have come out AH-mazing!!! 10/10 would recommend to anyone and everyone.”

…Zack and Jordin flew down to Northern California from Washington state, and spent the weekend exploring my little second home. We traveled around a San Francisco on a gloomy Saturday, and ended the night at Black Sands Beach where we frolicked, drank beer, and chowed down on some Panda Express afterwards…

“…When Miriam first reached out to me, she was SURE I was going to be her wedding photographer. SO sure, in fact, she messaged me BEFORE she was engaged!!! AHAHA, she definitely said yes to the photographer before seeing the ring. But having been with Kholt for many years, she knew it was coming soon, and wanted to make sure her perfect intimate elopement was planned with plenty of time TO PLAN! hehe…”

Kayla was the best. She was so welcoming and friendly to us and made our engagement session and wedding so magical. She hyped us up and delivered the best pictures I could imagine. She did everything I asked and got a picture of every moment that I wanted and even more that I didn’t know I wanted. She is a great person and an amazing photographer!! My mom and grandma made comments to me after the wedding that Kayla was the best photographer they’ve worked with at a wedding. She became more than a photographer to us- she became a friend. I am so thankful for her and all the hard work she put into the day and after to edit and make our pictures ones that we will never forget…”

Where do we even start? Our overall experience with Kayla Esparza Photography on our wedding day was nothing short of phenomenal! We found Kayla Esparza Photography on Instagram and were obsessed with the real love captured in the photos. Nothing seemed too staged…just beautiful raw love. We knew right away we needed her! Photography was one of the most important things to us for our wedding day. We wanted to look back at the photos on our first year anniversary, 5 year, 10 year, 50 year… and remember the feelings we felt that day. I reached out to Kayla shortly after my engagement and knew I wasn’t getting married for another year and a half…But knew we needed her! Kayla was the first vendor I booked for the wedding because I was so worried she was going to be booked for my wedding day! She was quick to my inquiry, sent me package deals to explore my options, but most importantly… she seemed just as excited as me for my big day!

The experience with Kayla Esparza & Honesty films was absolutely amazing!!! Kayla makes you feel like a professional model! Even if you are the most awkward person/couple she can literally make you feel and look like you do photo shoots for a living. Kayla is so easy to work with and makes everything run so smoothly before and on your wedding day!! After seeing my collection, I felt she literally captured every single moment that happened!!! Just like most people I hate being in front of the camera! I CAN NOT get my husband to take a picture EVER so the fact that she made us both feel so comfortable in front of the camera is a miracle. Kayla knows what she is doing and she is amazing at her job!! Also, my video was straight FIRE!!! I loved it!!!

Our overall experience with Kayla was amazing!!!! Everything from her taking our engagement photos and her getting up before 6am and bringing us coffee in freezing Washington to her sweet, intentional, and thoughtful details and gifts such as sending us an ornament for our first christmas together to driving all the way from northern California to southern Arizona for our wedding it was all incredible and she went above and beyond!! Photos were so important to us so we wanted to have Kayla be our photographer from the very beginning but we didn’t expect to become such good friends as well!! Kayla loves and serves others with her gifts so well and such a heart for people and we are so lucky to now call her a friend and to have to the most beautiful wedding photos that we will cherish forever. Kayla and Truth also just make such a great team. They were so comfortable on our wedding day which made us able to relax and just trust them that together they would take care of us.
