This might be the (second) happiest day of your life - the delivery of your gallery!

6-8 weeks after the big day, I'll send over your wedding gallery link and you'll be able to relive every moment of your day from start to finish. Once you have them, they're yours forever! Share them on your social medias, get them printed, or make an album. It's up to you! 

And keep an eye out for your very own blog post.

Your big day

Time for those "I Do's!"

Your wedding day is here, and it's time to celebrate you and the love of your life. We will have a timeline in place so you know when every photo will happen during the day, and I'll be there fluffing your dress and crying during your ceremony - all while capturing every precious wedding moment!

The dates secured - I'm yours! Now the fun part. your engagement shoot or as I like to call it "pretty practice"! You'll learn all the best posing tricks, look absolutely stunning, and we will create tons of inside jokes to use on wedding day.

"Meeting with Kailah made me decide to book almost immediately. She was so personable and fun. She genuinely was interested
in our love story and seemed invested since day one."


— Lindsey B.

"KAILAH was genuinely interested in our love story and seemed invested from day one."

"Find yourself a photographer who is willing to take her camera on a rented paddle boat out in the middle of a lake in the rain in order to get amazing photographs! I'm still in awe of how fearless and confident she was. Kailah was easy to trust with capturing our wedding, and I'm so glad we found her."

"Kailah just seemed so down to earth and after meeting her I was sold! Her kindness and joy in what she does shows in her work and in her personality.  You won’t regret booking her.  You’ll feel like you just have another friend cheering you on!"

love notes

A photographer should be one of the first vendors you book once you've secured a date. I recommend contacting me 12-18 months before your wedding to guarantee my availability.

how far in advance do i need to book you for my wedding?

For sessions, 2-4 weeks. For weddings, 6-8 weeks. During peak wedding season, my turnaround rate may be a week or two longer based on my workload. But I will keep you informed and updated on the progress!

how long will it take to get our photos delivered?

A HUGE yes! First looks are perfect for the couple who may be more shy or private with their intimacy. You can do them in so many different ways as well so it feels personal to you! And that means most of your photos are done pre-wedding!

Do you recommend a "first look" on the wedding day?

I recommend setting aside 7 hours minimum for your wedding day. Remember that weddings can be unpredictable and things like the weather, running behind, or miscommunication can set back your timeline. 

how many hours should we set aside for wedding photos?

Of course! Micro-weddings are on the rise, and so I've modified my elopement pricing to fit any and all micro-weddings. They can range anywhere from $500 - $1000. Just let me know in the contact form how many hours you'll need me and we'll go from there!

do you offer micro-wedding packages?

Absolutely! I believe every couple should be able to afford photography for their wedding day. Those memories are one in a million. I have several options available and am very flexible. Just ask!

Do you offer payment plans for your packages?

I work out of my house in the heart of West Nashville! I love getting to invite clients into my home office for meetings, coffee, and album design!

I know you travel, but where is your home base?

The simple answer is no. While I understand wanting every photo may be important to you, I handpick and hand-edit every image in your gallery. After years of culling through images, I have learned that multiples of the same shot aren't interesting to look at. 

Do you deliver every image from our shoot?
