about me

Hey, I'm Shayla! I was born and raised in Florida but have lived in Austin, Texas since January 2016. I'm twenty-five, married to the love of my life, and thankful every single day that I get to do this for a living.

I've been photographing friends and family for as long as I can remember. I used to bring my little Kodak point-and-shoot with me everywhere. I even insisted on bringing it to school every single day "just in case." The summer before high school my family gifted me my first DSLR: a Nikon D60. I was obsessed, and I still use Nikon gear today. I was actually in seventh grade when I decided I wanted to make this a career..that moment is still so fresh in my mind. It wasn't some huge epiphany, but a sigh of relief.

 


My passion for shooting Intimate Weddings and Elopements came about when my husband and I eloped ourselves back in 2018.

 

I very much enjoy attending and capturing traditional weddings, but when it came to planning one of our own we quickly realized it just wasn't for us. There are a multitude of reasons why, the biggest one for me being privacy and intimacy. Eloping allowed me to be vulnerable and say the vows I truly wanted to. I wasn't worried about what I was saying or how hard I was crying because the only person there was my husband. I love that we were able to be our authentic selves when we committed our lives to each other.

 

I knew that if I was feeling uneasy about planning a huge event, then there must be more couples out there that felt the same. Because of that, I'm a huge advocate for intimate ceremonies like the one we had, but honestly? I'm an even bigger advocate for doing whatever the hell you want! I believe your wedding day should be a reflection of who you are as a couple, whatever that means for you.

When I'm not working you'll find me browsing antique stores, sneaking my camera into concerts, re-watching Psych/The Good Place for the millionth time, and testing out new recipes.

I enjoy run-on sentences, have a profound love for cows, and will definitely cry at least once shooting your wedding.
