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.

For too long, elopements have been the joke of the wedding industry. They have been confused with shotgun weddings. The OG Dad joke is “I’ll give you them money if you’d just elope!” In the words of Rodney Dangerfield, elopements just can’t get no respect. With that said, there is a lot of allure for […]

Living in quarantine points out some extreme things about life…things that have otherwise gone unnoticed. Even though I have only been working from home for four days, I’ve noticed several things that, even though I’ve already knew about them, stand out now more than ever, especially in regards to the kitchen. I have spent more […]

It was June 28, 2016. A Tuesday. It should have been a very good day. It wasn’t. The day started as expected: Dad was driving me to Minneapolis to drop me off at the airport. I was heading back to Tel Aviv, Israel, after a couple year hiatus. I had spent months creating a beautifully […]

When I show up on your wedding day, there’s going to be a lot of gear popping our of my camera bag. One thing you might notice straight away is two camera bodies—a recognizable digital Nikon with it’s iconic red tag on the grip, and a less-known vintage Pentax 645n, which is a film camera. […]

I get asked all the time “How did you get into wedding photography?” It’s a fair question. I am not married myself, so I can’t say that I was inspired by the process when I went through it. Fine arts was not something I studied in college, so it’s not like I know the artistry […]

Let’s make one thing clear: Bemidji is a cool city. Yes, Duluth (my college town) likes to make that claim, too, but this other collegeville 140 miles west is also unique and can offer much to any couple looking to get married within its limits. One of those offerings is a former warehouse-turned collective art […]

When prepping for vacation, I am sure we all do very similar things: Find a new swimsuit, try to lose a little weight to rock that new swimsuit, and plan out what restaurant we will hit up (unless I am the only one who views eateries as major attractions…). My goal this month adds one […]

FIRST THINGS FIRST: REFRESHING MY HEBREW

The name “Show Me Your Mumu” doesn’t instantly conjure up images of adorable dresses that are fashionable. I will be honest: When I first heard of it, I assumed it was clothing for a different generation. I expected something ill-fitting and floral. Just like we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, we probably shouldn’t […]

We live in a glorious age: Bridesmaid dresses no longer need to be sickening sweet pastel poofballs, and they no longer need to be all match-matchy. What a time to be alive (and get married)! With that said, there is more to it than just telling your gals to go and find whatever they want. […]

All it takes is one search for “wedding photography” to see that sometimes we speak a totally different language. Peppered throughout our websites are words and phrases that you have never heard of, and I get it: It’s hard to make sense of it all. Consider this post a quick little wedding photography dictionary to […]
