"I'm honored that this pinnacle moment in Jalina and I's lives was captured by such an intelligent, compassionate, humble, talented human being. I wouldn't want to look back at our wedding through anyone else's lens. Our day wouldn't have been the same without you, Shay. I'm forever grateful for the way you showed up for us."


"YOUUUUU! OMG! Rolling tears over here. You made our day so much more special than it ever could have been. We are forever connected to you."

"Shayla is absolutely a gem. From the second she responded to my inquiry, I knew she was the photographer for me. I inquired in 2019, not knowing all the things 2020 had in store for everyone. When 2020 came rolling through like a bull in a china shop, Shayla was more than accommodating, understanding, and compassionate. She made having a small intimate wedding a no-brainer. She will be photographing our big wedding in 2021, and I am beyond excited. I look back at the photos she sent over and I relive that day. She got all of the intimate moments and you can see all of the feels from everyone there. You want someone to be on your side during tough times, to make sure everything is going as smooth as possible during the stress of planning a wedding, & then capturing those candid moments on your big day. Trust me, choose Shayla to be your photographer.. you will be so happy you did! ♥️"

"I literally don’t know where to start. Not only did Shayla beautifully capture EVERY emotion throughout our wedding day, she did the same with our engagement photos + “day after” session photos. Love radiates through her work. When we showed our family our wedding gallery, we laughed, cried, hooted & hollered, ALL of it. She is not only incredible at her craft, she genuinely cares- about you, your photos, your family, your wedding, etc. We will be using Shayla for every future photography need for as long as possible <3"

"From the first time we met, I knew Shayla was the perfect photographer for us. She's kind, supportive, knowledgeable and extremely talented! She made us feel comfortable, calm, and confident on one of the most hectic days in our lives. We were able to experience our wedding day twice with the help of her detail oriented eyes and thoughtful consideration." / "I've already sent the wedding photos to everyone and they all agreed that you did such an incredible job! Thank you thank you thank you."

"My husband and I made the best decision to hire Shayla as our wedding photographer. We had a low-key backyard wedding, and Shayla captured so much love and happiness in our photos. She managed to catch fleeting and spontaneous moments while she effortlessly orchestrated the posed family photos. From the tiniest details in my jewelry to the biggest smiles on our family’s faces, every shot was thoughtful and deliberate. She was organized, incredibly personable, and overall a delight to work with! Shayla went above and beyond for us, and we couldn’t be more thankful."

Laura and Marcus

"I’ve been working with Shayla since my son, Ezra, was born. She’s done multiple shoots for us, but most recently she shot my wife and I’s elopement. Let me just say that if you’re looking for a photographer, the search stops here. She’s professional, responsive, inquisitive, and passionate about her work. Her photography style is candid and beautiful. Do yourself a favor.. book her!"
