Hi I’m Kami! First things first, I want you to know your wedding is a huge deal to me.
My couples are not just names on my calendar or numbers on a spreadsheet. And being a wedding photographer is more than someone who takes your pictures for one day. This is an important relationship. I am your right-hand-woman – like a bridesmaid/groomslady with a camera more than a vendor you hired. Your cheerleader, encourager, organizer, drink-getter, the gal screaming “YAS YAS YAS” because I’m so excited about the work I’m creating for you. More than anything, I believe my job is to make your day as easy and fun as possible. I work my butt off to make sure you have the best day ever – FOR REAL. And then at the end of it, you have incredible images you’ll treasure the rest of your life.
I became a wedding photographer because I was studying photojournalism and was unable to stay separate from my ‘subjects.’ I would become wayyyyy too close to everyone I interviewed and photographed (apparently that’s frowned upon as a journalist – who knew?!). And then someone asked me to shoot their wedding and I discovered storytelling like I never knew existed: YOU MEAN I CAN BE A PHOTOJOURNALIST ANDDDDD BECOME BESTIES WITH EVERYONE I GET TO WORK WITH?! YAY OKAY!
This isn’t about me or what I'm looking for as an artist. This is about YOU, giving you the best experience ever, and leaving you with images you will cherish forever and pass down to future generations. I shy away from super trendy things that I'm worried you'll hate in a few years; I'm committed to storytelling and creating timeless images.
Above all, I'm here for you. I respond quickly, get your images back fast, do tons of location scouting and prep work, help make your timeline, and will always be in your corner every step of the way.
Based in San Diego, CA and living my best life with my husband. When we aren't working, you can find us at Disneyland or on the beach and probably eating burritos.
If you're looking for a perfect day, you want Kami by your side. Kami is a jack of all trades and master of LITERALLY all of them. Her lines of communication are open from day one and she's SO easy to talk to. She's your support when you maybe didn't know you needed it, your voice when you aren't sure what to say or how to say it, and your eyes when you're worried about missing even the smallest detail. She guided us through the great, the good, the bad, and the weird, and she never faltered. She is talented, confident, and structured, yet can always adapt to whatever the day throws her. She makes you feel at ease in front of her camera - like working with an old friend. She will work really hard both with and for you to give you the best images of the best day. Kami got to know us, our wedding party, and our families and every one of those people are still singing her praises. She deserves it. The preview photos she's shown us from our wedding day are INSANE - more beautiful and perfect than we could have ever expected and we're still talking about how much fun we had with her. She is the total package; a gem of a human who is passionate about giving you the best experience, memories, and images possible. Of all the decisions we made about our wedding day, Kami was easily the best one. - Laura+Chris
