Hi there! My name is Kailah. I’m a destination wedding photographer based in Utah with a passion for warm wedding photography and telling love stories with honesty and authenticity.
I fell in love with photography as a little kid, when I would spend hours watching my Grandpa as he developed photos in his dark room. Back then, watching images appear out of nowhere felt like magic, and to this day I bring that feeling of awe and wonder to all my photography work.
When you book a photo session with me, you should be prepared to laugh, cry, and embrace your wild side! I love capturing fun, candid shots of my couples rolling around in the grass, playfully dog-piling on top of one another, or even having water fights. Whether it’s an elopement in the mountains or a boho chic wedding, I’ll use my camera to capture every moment. Your wedding is a crazy, joyful time and you deserve fun couple photos that reflect that!
My top priority for all my photoshoots is to make my couples feel comfortable, relaxed, and safe to express their truest, amazing selves. No matter what type of session you’re looking for, I’ll make sure your photos will be timeless, chic, and authentic.
If you’re an extrovert who loves to party, then let’s hit the dance floor and get crazy! If you’d rather take a more understated approach, that’s totally fine too! Just relax and act naturally, and I’ll be sure to get your good side.
There’s nothing I love more than using my camera to document a couple’s one-of-a-kind love story! Chasing a new adventure is the essence of who I am, and my work as a destination wedding photographer brings me a brand new adventure with every new couple I meet.
I’ve always been a hopeless romantic — the feelings of longing and desire always gets me. Those feelings exist even in the moments you least expect: The longing to never let the adventure end. The epic moments that force you to close your eyes. The desire to start your life with the person you know you’re meant to be with forever.
I’m always on the lookout for those fleeting moments, and you can rely on me to capture them forever in candid wedding photography you can revisit over and over again.
EVERY WEDDING, EVERY SHOOT, I SEE THE WORLD THROUGH A WHOLE NEW LENS.
On the morning of your big day, I’ll show up hyped off one too many coffees and prepared to capture every single important moment. From the mother of the bride helping you step into your dress while your girl gang staring in awe, to the groom and his buds sneaking drinks to calm their nerves. You can count on me to capture all the feelings of love and joy as they happen!
During the day I’ll be the wallflower behind the scenes, photographing moments and details while you’re getting ready or toasting your girls with some (or a bit more than some) bubbly. It’s your job to enjoy every second and live in the moment — let me worry about the rest. I’ll be by your side to offer guidance for everything from booking to what to wear and how to pose.
LIVE IN THE MOMENT, LET ME WORRY ABOUT THE REST.
1. I love love love to travel. My favorite place to visit is by far Greece. Fun fact: I once traveled to Greece with my family, and the airline lost our luggage, so my husband, one-year-old, and I did a two-week vacation with pretty much nothing. I’ve got to say my favorite memory was my husband blow-drying his underwear every night because he refused to buy new ones.
2. The most common question I get asked is, “How tall are you?” Let me just tell you I am a whole 4’9". It doesn't stop me from doing things taller people do. I just might have to climb on a counter to do so.
3. I hate lifting weights…so instead I do badass tricks on a pole, in a hoop, and hanging from some fabric. I also really enjoy some yoga when my dogs and little guy aren’t trying to pile on top of me.
I HAVE AN ACUTE CASE OF WANDERLUST, AND DOCTORS SAY IT’S INCURABLE!
Kailah perfectly captured the most special day and we are so grateful for her. She did an amazing job and is so wonderful. Thank you for making our special day one we can remember forever
I had so much fun working with Kailah. I told her my vision and she made it come to life!
I love all of our photos so much! I can't stop looking at them and I know we will use Kailah for all of our future photos.
