HI FRIEND

I'M SHAYLA

PHOTOGRAPHER FOR COUPLES THAT BELIEVE IN THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER

A favorite quote of mine comes from Alfred Eisenstadt, one of the most prolific photojournalists of the twentieth century: “It is more important to click with the person than to click with the shutter.” More than anything, this speaks to why I succeed as a documentary-style wedding photographer.

I photograph people the way they are and the interactions that happen between them. I am constantly on the lookout for a hidden smile, a knowing look, a private joke, acrobatic moves on the dance floor — any interaction that creates energy while telling a story.

HOW IT ALL STARTED

My fascination for photography all began at the age of fifteen. My mother had just purchased a cheap camera to take with us on family vacations, and asked for my help figuring it out. I messed with the dials and had my best friend pose in front of the camera for me. A few hours later, I had learned the most basic functions, and had quite a few pictures of my friend. I remember when my friend went home that evening I got the camera back out and started taking pictures of anything and everything. It was like I couldn’t get photography out of my mind, and that’s still the case today. As my photography changed, so did I. Photography made me an adventurer, an entrepreneur, and an admirer of the world around me.

We booked Shayla for our engagement session and wedding photos, our wedding is still a few months away. We did our engagement photos already and we couldn’t be more in love with them!! She was so friendly during the session, my fiancé and I was both a nervous wreck and she made us forget that we was even doing a photo shoot. I can’t wait to see her again and let her take everlasting memories of one of the biggest days of our lives.
