Hi there! Welcome to the KLP Blog, a journal about all the things that I love about life. Stay a while and say hello!

Hi, I'm kayla.

It is a common question over coffee or a beer: What do you personally want to accomplish with wedding photography, Kayla? What are your photography goals?

It’s a fair question. 

My “why” for photography is very clear: I want to provide classy, sassy, adventurous, elegant brides and grooms with romantic and timeless photos that capture their love story they way they tell it. I am a journalist before I consider myself an artist, so I see my function to capture a wedding day as it was rather than 

With that said, I do have a few specific tales I hope to tell, someday…

1.) PHOTOGRAPH A JEWISH WEDDING

If you follow me on Instagram, you are more likely to get a glimpse into my personal life, so you would know that I am Jewish. Obviously not exceptionally observant given that I made a life of working on Saturdays,  but I am still Jewish nonetheless. Knowing that my own wedding day would include a chuppah, ketubah, glass stomp, and a lift in chairs, I very much want to capture these shared traditions for someone someday.

2.) SHOOT AN ISRAELI WEDDING

Again, if we’ve connected on IG, you know I love Israel something fierce, and I love all parts of it. I would love to photograph a wedding in that country. Being it Jewish, Muslim, Christian, Baha’i…whatever. It doesn’t matter. Anyone I have met from all beliefs and backgrounds in that country is vibrant and beautiful, and I want to capture their biggest day.

3.) SHOOT A WEDDING THAT PROVES #LOVEISLOVE

I try not to get too political (again, I am a journalist and a teacher so I do my best to stay objective)…but I don’t consider this a political issue. Love is love, and everyone deserves the right to stand up and say “I do” to the one whom their soul loves. I have been a major supporter of marriage equality my entire life, and I hope to someday photograph a wedding that celebrates how far we’ve come. 

4.) SHOOT A TOTALLY OFF-THE-GRID ELOPEMENT

I’m talking the couple, two witnesses, and an officiant (and me). We go way off the beaten path, do the deal, seal it with a kiss and a signature. That would be amazing.

5.) SHOOT A TRASH THE DRESS SESSION

I am pretty open about my beliefs about wedding dresses. If it is meant to be worn once, wear it to its fullest. I am all for creating an heirloom, but I am also for enjoying every last stitch of that investment. Someday I would like to do something dramatic and one-of-a-kind with a wedding dress.
