I'm always on the search for those in-between moments. The fleeting moments other photographers might miss. The natural moments that aren't overly staged. That's how we authentically tell the story of your day.

it's a pleasure to meet you. I'll go first:

I'm kayleen

I actually never planned on becoming a photographer. I was knee-deep in LSAT prep when I decided to pick up a camera...and I quickly became obsessed.

Living in Hollywood Hills at the time, I began taking portraits of others in front of beautiful homes - only to later realize my first photo backdrops were owned by celebrities such as singer Bebe Rexha and Jack Black.

Within months, my work graced the cover of a Hollywood magazine, and I've just never stopped since. Fast forward, I've photographed over a 100 weddings with my love of storytelling through photography only growing stronger.

My passion lies in the stories of the people I'm privileged to meet. It's how I connect with others on a deeper level. Learning their unique quirks, why they fell in love, and seeing how we can draw that out in their photos.


A Collaborative experience to create together

Think of me as your visionary guide and collaborative partner. I find most couples have an idea in mind of what they want but need someone to refine that vision and help it come to life...That's where I step in. I custom tailor my approach to each couple and their unique vision. From day one, I want to learn about you, why you fell in love, and then see how we can make your story show through photos. Together, we'll craft a personalized experience that reflects your unique story through artistic portraits and natural, candid moments.
