E + A | HISTORIC DULUTH WINTER ELOPEMENT

Alexandrite is not like any other stone. Thanks to a phenomenon called metamerism, the gem changes its appearance based on the light. At times it will seem green; other times the jewel will appear purple. Sometimes there is even a bluish hue. Alexandrite is uniquely beautiful and unexpected. Unlike any other couple is Emma and […]

B + C | A CENTRAL MINNESOTA SUMMER WEDDING

Sure, plans change. Many of us have gone through that this spring. But four times? That was the world of Breanna and Craig as they patiently waited for their day to say “I do.” Their wedding was originally planned for March 28, 2020, a date that mattered most to them as it was their nine […]

N + T : A FALL WEDDING IN BEMIDJI

Like most good things, it all started on Duluth’s Superior Street. It was just a typical night at Dubh Linn’s. By chance, they were both there, with their friends. They met, chatted, and that was that. It was to be nothing more than just come talk about tattoos over beer. But that one meeting was […]

L + K: A NORTHWOODS CAMP WEDDING

“…and when one of them meets the other half, the actual half of himself, whether he be a lover of youth or a lover of another sort, the pair are lost in an amazement of love and friendship and intimacy and one will not be out of the other’s sight, as I may say, even for a […]

L + C: A TWO HARBORS SUMMER WEDDING

  Despite the mid-August mugginess, there was nothing hazy about Lacey and Cody’s wedding day. Yes, it was warm and sticky and kind of icky weather-wise, but when standing on the rocks along the Lake Superior shore holding the hands of your beloved, there is nothing wrong about that.    Lacey and Cody had made their love and their […]

K + A: A SOUTHERN MN STATE PARK WEDDING

  “I keep my gratitude in my smileA glistening waterfall in the sun Gently splashing at that personWho made me happy for some reason” -Sanobar Kahn   From the minute I met Adam and Kaitlynn for the first time amidst of the mist of Minnehaha Falls, two things became very clear despite the cool fuzzy air: […]

K + M: A MINNEAPOLIS GOLF COURSE WEDDING

Jamie was simply sitting in class one day when she received a text from her sister, Katie. According to Jamie, it is not uncommon for Katie to urgently need to talk, but this text, which read boldly “EMERGENCY 911,” forced Jamie to book it with her textbooks out of her class to see what was […]

K + M: A SUMMER LAKE SUPERIOR VISTA FLEET WEDDING

Wedding crashers, am I right? Katelyn and Matt had the craziest wedding crasher at their Duluth “I Do.” She goes by the name Carson J. Callaway; her presence was so obvious, so intrusive, the whole venue had to come to a halt until she made her way out of the picture…but many in attendance made sure […]

J + M: A SUNNY SUMMER HIBBING WEDDING

I know Mother Nature knows best; she knows when we need rain and snow…all the things that could equate to big chaos for any photo session, but it’s a special sort of catastrophe on a wedding day.    Some days, however, I cannot help but feel she is fully aware of this fact, and holds […]

K + D: A JUNE CAMP ESQUAGAMA WEDDING

Agreements were arranged; promises were made. Kaylin and Daniel were on the same page about this.   Or so Daniel thought, until he saw their first piece of cake come straight up towards his face from below.   Naturally, Daniel’s first response was retaliation, which was evident as he chased Kaylin out the front door […]

BEHIND THE LENS

ABOUT KAYLA

At home on the road. Forever-focused on authenticity and the thrilling art of creation; always found in the moments that leave me breathless and in awe. 

After fourteen years as a high school educator, I stepped back through a door I thought was closed. Journalism came back into my life. Armed with a Masters of Arts in Communication, I was again challenged and prepared to tell the stories that would become history, but with a twist: It is now your legacy of love that I document. The tension I seek is that from every tear, smile, laugh, and moment of love on your wedding day.
