Hi, I’m Kayley! I’m a wedding and lifestyle photographer in Oklahoma. I am typically known for my love of coffee, avocados, my two Labrador babies, my husband Hunter, and always keeping it fun + light-hearted. I believe in capturing genuine memories, not just creating moments. My biggest passion is getting to show my clients how even the smallest, most ordinary moments can be extraordinarily beautiful.
For as long as I can remember, I have always had a love for taking photos. When I was little my favorite thing to do was get a new disposable camera. I would spend hours walking around my neighborhood taking photos of all my neighbor’s pets! ha! Then I began taking portraits of my friends in college and slowly started doing more and more senior portraits. I photographed my first wedding in September 2015 when some of my friends told me that their photographer was not going to make it to their wedding TWO WEEKS before their day. Talk about a heart-attack! Of course I was up for the job and terrified at the same time. It is still one of my favorite weddings not only because they were some of my best friends, but because I just remember loving every second and decided never to stop.
After I graduated college, I went full time into this dream job of mine. It was the greatest decision I have ever made because there is nothing that I am more passionate about (maybe besides my husband and our pups). Photographing weddings is more than an honor in my book. If you’ve ever been a bride then you know there is not a more magical (but somehow so stressful) day. Nothing compares! I never want to be the photographer that makes a wedding all about them, their images, and their portfolio. The day is about the couple committing their lives to one another and it is my job to capture that exactly as it unfolds. The sad part about weddings is that when the day is over, all you are left with is your memories. The memory of how your heart started racing when you finally put your dress on, your mom hugging you just to calm you down, seeing your husband waiting for you at the end of the isle and not noticing anyone else, how maybe everyone got a little too drunk at your reception (my wedding haha), and your grandma out killing it on the dance floor. You don’t get to relive those moments, you might have missed those moments, and one day it will be really hard to remember anything at all. THAT is why I take my job so seriously. I want you to be able to relive that day over and over again until you’re old and gray!!
Enough about me! I want to know more about you and your love story!! Click below, let’s grab some coffee, and talk about how I can best capture your beautiful memories!
