We may have just met, but I get you.
You are an individual, always true to yourself and your beliefs.
You are elegant and classic, and your favorite trends aren't trends at all--they are timeless, classic choices that will always be in style. You lust for your next adventure...and maybe to pet all the dogs. You care deeply for those in your life, and you know what matters most.
As a would-be journalist one-time high school teacher, dog mom to Benny, and fine art Minnesotan photographer, I get it. I get you. And I want nothing more than to help you get from here to your "I do" by allowing you to live your legacy and love out loud through elegant, airy images.
THIS IS THE MISSION OF THE KLP WEDDING EXPERIENCE. This is my promise to you.
You know how you feel it.
I know how to tell it.
I know what you're worried about.
You want photos that will do your memories justice, imagery that is far from dated and will stand the test of time and are romantic, authentic, and everlasting.
A all-inclusive experience is what you crave. You're busy, so you seek an extra set of hands and another brain to help with your planning and decision-making.
In a time where everything is starting to look like a copy of a copy, you want to stand out, in your own way, and tell your love story in your own words.
Micromanaging is the last thing you want to do on your wedding day. You want to be sure you have assembled the A-Team of vendors who bring not only elegance, but also the experience to your day.

The average KLP Couple invests $4500 on their experience for 9 hours of coverage with an album and engagement session!
After a decade in the wedding industry, have seen from multiple angles what goes into planning an event, and I have condensed it for KLP Couples. This includes a copy of 100-page KLP Wedding Experience Guide (included in every welcome gift), strategy and consultation calls to work though wherever you may be stuck at your planning, emails with tips and hacks, and timeline development to be sure everything appears just as you envisioned it. You will also have access to my ever-growing list of sought after vendors to help you build a wedding day dream team.
I stand by my statement that this is your story, and it should be told in your words, not mine. For this reason, I give you a choice when it comes to you booking gift: A one-hour engagement session, print/album credit, or an extra hour of coverage on your wedding day. It your wedding, your life, your legacy, so you deserve to choose your own adventure.
From save-the-date cards to full invitation suites to album design, I am true to my award-winning design and yearbook nerd roots and will always be available to help your vision become a reality. Custom in-house design services are only available to KLP Couples.
Each KLP Wedding + Elopement Experience comes with complete print release for your convenience. You are always invited to order prints online through your Cloudspot gallery, or you may take them to the print shop of your choice (that way when you get your brilliant idea at 11 pm to redo your photo wall, you don't need to wait for me...although I would probably still be up, too).

LET ME GIVE YOU THE DEETS
“This is your day. This is the time to go after it all.”
My main camera body is a Nikon D5. My lens arsenal includes a 35mm, 50mm, 85mm portrait, 105mm macro, 135mm, and a 70-200mm zoom. My film camera is a Pentax 645n, with either a 75mm or 150mm lens with it.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! I will always try to harness and use natural light, but I can use flash if need be. I come to every event with three Nikon flashes and the ability to light up your world (or at least your reception).
I am primarily a digital photographer, but shoot film as well. I believe both mediums serve their purpose, incorporate both when appropriate for your love story. I edit for light, airy images that are as authentic as they are romantic.
After your wedding, expect to see images on social media within 48 hours, a blog by the end of the week. Your gallery will be delivered within four to six weeks.
I use gentle gesturing to "pose" you, which creates opportunities for your natural movements and interactions to be front and center, so only the authentic you shines through! A little candid, a little posed, and all you in your gallery!
This makes my day! The first step to is to inquire and receive the Kayla Lee Photography Wedding Experience Guide, which will explain the package options as well as the a la carte items (and the little goodies available, just for you)!
The retainer is $1000 for weddings and elopements; remaining balances are due one month before your event. The invoice will be accessible through HoneyBook (it's like PayPal for creatives).
The best way to reach me is always through email at email@example.com. I generally respond to all emails within 24 hours.
. All of your photographs are astounding and I couldn’t be more pleased or happier. Thank you for capturing our love and friendship, and thank you for being you with your own authentic photography style. We appreciate you and commend you more than you can imagine!
I'm Kayla, your new BFF (brew-finding friend)
HISTORY BUFF, WRITER, CREATIVE, FONT FANATIC, INFJ & A BIT OF A TROUBLEMAKER (NEVER BEEN A FAKER, DOING THINGS MY OWN WAY AND NEVER GIVING UP)
All I ever wanted to do with my life is tell stories. That was the plan ever since I was in eighth grade. This was also the time I fell in love with brides and grooms. In my book bag, next to my school supplies, there was always a journal for scribbling and writing as well as a copy of Martha Stewart Weddings.
As I grew up, I never lost those loves. I ultimately studied History, English, and Communications, so I know first hand the power of a great story as well as how to record and retell it for the ages.
Your story can be a light in our world;
I am here to help you shine!
In a way, everything led me to be here,
I've said it before and I will say it again: My job is to tell your beautiful, one-of-a-kind story. I'd be lying if I didn't say I've had a little help getting them out there.
