Kayla was absolutely amazing during our elopement shoot. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera and the pictures turned out stunning. I will cherish them forever. Can’t wait for her to photograph for us in the future. Thank you so much for capturing our day perfectly.
I hired Kayla for some headshots while I was visiting Knoxville. As a photographer myself, I really admired that her style was warm but she still retained the whites and natural colors in her photos. So we scheduled our morning session in the Airbnb I rented. First impression, this woman is so smiley and fun, not once did I feel uncomfortable. She guided me to move and play in a way that felt natural to me. She was precise in capturing photos, and I felt like our session couldn’t have gone any better. Well, she went home, edited AND delivered my photos the same day we took them! Seriously, I was in awe; the colors, my expressions, her angles, and the diverse gallery she delivered in an incredibly timely manner by far exceeded my expectations. I can’t quit looking at the photos she captured. These are going to be all over my Instagram, website, Facebook, etc. Kayla was not only an incredible human who I could see myself being friends with, she is so insanely talented and I’m grateful for this branding session with her.
Kayla is an absolute joy to work with. You made myself and my husband feel so comfortable and happy the entire wedding day. I loved how inspired you were and how much time you took to make sure that our day was captured. We had the best time with you and could not be more grateful to have you document our day. Your photos are absolutely gorgeous and I’m already obsessed with the first looks you gave us. We are already debating what to turn into a canvas. Thank you so much for everything we loved it!!
Kayla is the absolute sweetest, most down to Earth, precious photographer EVER! I gave her a couple ideas I had and she was able to do them along with her own ideas better than I could have imagined! I tear up everytime I look at the pictures because she captured the raw emotion and love so perfectly. I can't recommend her enough!
I have never met with Kayla in person. That is one of the downsides of booking from a different state; However, we had posted to Facebook our need for a Knoxville based photographer and received 200+ recommendations. It took two and a half days to go through everyone's websites and review their portfolio's knowing we had a specific idea in mind for what we were wanting. We narrowed it down to our top 9 photographers and then started asking for pricing, but also still feel the need to disclose that we are a same sex couple looking to have pictures done, even in 2020. There were 3 that we could not work with, but Kayla was an easy choice, she jumped at the opportunity to photograph our wedding and make it as special an easy as possible. Her pricing was not the cheapest we were quoted, but its so reasonable and she is willing to accommodate any request. Honestly we chose to work specifically with Kayla, due to her professionalism and spirit. She is so easy to talk to and puts off such a positive vibe. Her portfolio speaks for itself. There are a lot of talented photographers out there, but we wanted to create art, not just pictures and to do so you need a photographer who can match your energy, be just as excited to take your pictures as you are to receive them and actually be a great person. The fact that she is so easy to work with is why I would recommend her time and time again. She will pull all the emotion out of you required to take a great shot and make you feel comfortable the entire time. She is rare and I wouldn't dream of having anyone else capture this for us.
"I have done a variety of shoots with Kayla, between couples outdoor and indoor sessions and individual shoots. During each session she finds ways to make the experience comfortable and fun! Her energy and creativity bring out the best in her clients during the shoot. The results always amazing me when I receive her finished album! Not only does she go above and beyond to capture the best moments, she has proven professional and reliable on all occasions! Trust this girl with any occasion or event!
Kayla is amazing! She has a fantastic eye, is amazing with the kids, puts my family completely at ease (including the Dad that hates having his picture taken) and takes gorgeous pictures. I have never looked forward to having photos done, but I do with Kayla because I know we'll have fun anf love the results. We are so happy we found her and anticipate coming back over the years. Thank you so much Kayla!
