I truly and whole heartedly believe that a photo says a thousand words, and I want to create the worlds largest library of love stories, success stories, inspirational stories, YOUR stories. Every story is unique, and i want to capture allll the  genuine, sweet, silly, crazy moments with you. Let's write your novel :)

My Mission & Passion...

Hi! Hello there!!

Sometimes when there's a camera in front of us, our instinct is to put on a good face because we want to capture the best parts of ourselves. I wholeheartedly believe that the best part of us is the real us. When i'm behind the camera i don't want a model in front of me, i just want those real, authentic moments. The ones where you're completely and unapologetically yourselves. 

My absolute favorite moments to capture are the moments when the couple doesn't think the camera is pointing at them. The moments when they're just completely themselves and it feels like there's no one else on this planet. The moments when they look at each other and know there's nothing more important than what is right in front of them.

my method

In all my work, I focus on capturing genuine and authentic moments. Not the perfectly posed moments, the real ones. The whisper in the ear. The subtle booty grab (a personal fav). The look you give when you know the person in front of you is truly something special.

We're going to be best friends by the end of this, trust me :)

The Experience

"Kali was absolutely the best to work with! My fiancé and I wanted to get engagement photos while we were in Hawaii and I couldn’t be happier! She was super directive and knew exactly what her visions were. The pictures turned out AMAZING and now we will have these photos to cherish forever! Highly highly recommend booking a session with her!"
