So I just wanted to say a quick hello before you start going through my twenty-twenty wedding guide!!!! It’s soooo important to me that we vibe well together, and create a FRIENDSHIP!!! I’m not going to be everyone’s photographer, it’s just not how this works!! You may loooooove my photos + videos, but at the end of the day, we may just be two different people, and thats totally okay!!! I want you to find your absolute dream photographer that makes you be like “OH MY GOSH I’M DEADDDDDDD” looking at their images, but also that your personalities match up. ‘Cause I’m gonna be honest, the day is going to be WAYYYYY more easy going, and fun if you love me for me, AND my work!!!!!!

sooo with that in mind, let me tell you a little bit more about ME. This is basically going to be my tinder profile to you, either you’ll swipe right, or swipe left!! LOL. Here we go. :)

+I’m a full time mother, dog mama and wife, first and foremost!

+I grew up in the PNW, but now live in Northern California. I’ve found a deep love for both homes of mine. I have a small tattoo on my wrist to remind me of them. Its a mountain going into a wave.

+ I’m a super easy going individual. But I’m also a planner, I love to be over-prepared, than under. I also like to be WAY early, to everything, because my mom was always late to everything growing up, so I try to counteract that now! LOL

+I love animals, like a loooooooot. So bring your dogs to your engagement pictures, okay thanks bye!!!!!

+I’m superrrrrrrrr outdoorsy. But not like your 10 mile hike, pee in a cup and make filtered water kinda gal, but more like being outside barefoot running around the beach or mountains.

+I'm loud and crazy. Or so I’ve been told. ;)

+I might seem suuuuper outgoing, but I can totes do a 4 day streak of Netflix in my favorite pair of sweats and not washing my hair kinda thing. So basically trying to tell you I’m also a homebody!

How was your overall experience with Kayla Esparza Photography?

SLAGLE_KAYLAESPARZAPHOTOGRAPHY-914.jpg

+ Our overall experience with Kayla was amazing!!!! everything from her taking our engagement photos and her getting up before 6am and bringing us coffee in freezing Washington to her sweet, intentional, and thoughtful details and gifts such as sending us an ornament for our first christmas together to driving all the way from northern California to southern Arizona for our wedding it was all incredible and she went above and beyond!! Photos were so important to us so we wanted to have Kayla be our photographer from the very beginning but we didn't expect to become such good friends as well!! Kayla loves and serves others with her gifts so well and such a heart for people and we are so lucky to now call her a friend and to have to the most beautiful wedding photos that we will cherish forever. 

If you were explaining to a friend your experience with Kayla Esparza, how would you describe it?

+ our experience with Kayla was seriously so great. She has the sweetest most intentional and kind heart and went out of her way to make sure that we felt comfortable and happy with the process of getting photos taken to the results. The most perfect day of your life is worth investing in. We could not be happier with our engagement and wedding photos. When i see them hung up throughout our house I think JOY! They perfectly depict and represent my husband and I's love for each other and kayla also made us look goooooood!!! Kayla and truth also just make such a great team. They were so comfortable on our wedding day which made us able to relax and just trust them that together they would take care of us. Every time we were around them on the wedding day or having our picture taken we felt more relaxed. They brought such a good energy and by the end of the wedding my family didn't want them to leave they fit right in with them which was so fun and its because they are the most amazing and hilarious couple you will meet.

How did you feel in front of the camera?

+ we have always felt so awkward when people take pictures of us! We always feel weird with lack of direction and never know what to do. Kayla made us feel like we were on a date it was so much fun haha. She laughed with, told jokes and shared stories while taking our photos which made the pressure go away and helped us be ourselves more. looking at our photos we are like how is that us we look so good!! but most of all she made us look ourselves and happy. It was easy being in front of the camera when Kayla was taking the photos. She made it easy. It was so helpful having her take our engagement photos first so then by the wedding we knew what to expect and we were bffs so it was extra fun and easy! 

How was the quality of your images/video?

SLAGLE_KAYLAESPARZAPHOTOGRAPHY-1759.jpg

+ The quality of our images and videos are incredible. It was absolutely worth investing in because we will have these photos forever and ever. We weren't expecting to have to many photos either which was amazing! We could not be happier with the way they turned out, with the shots she got, and with the quality. It took months to plan and now we can remember everything forever and in such a beautiful way. All the details were captured from the scenery, my husband and I praying together before the ceremony, to our guests laughing and talking, to the epic dance party, to my maid of honor helping me pee hahah. It was the best day of our lives and we are happy we can have these pictures and videos to look back at it forever.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


ALL THE IMPORTANT THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW

“how does the booking process work?”

Here is a step by step on the booking process…

step one: pick your package + add ons, and send it to me in an email. I’ll then send you my contract with your personalized package, and all you’ll need to do is sign, and pay a non-refundable payment which is 1/3 of your overall package price.

step two: do a happy dance, cause your photographer/video team is BOOKED!

All contracts and messages are through my saving grace small business online organizing system called HoneyBook. You can come back into your project and access anything you need to at anytime during the planning process. Invoices will be sent to you directly from me through QuickBooks. payment reminders will be sent to you through honeybook, and payments are collected in the following order…

1/3 due at signing of contract

2/3 due mid way between contract being signed, and wedding date

3/3 due one week before the wedding date


“I don’t need _______. can i exchange anything in my package?”

Great question!! you’re only allowed to add on to your packages, you can’t take anything away, or exchange. if you’d like to opt out of a certain part of your package, you’re more than welcome to do so, but no money will be refunded/discounted to you.

“how soon after booking do you recommend doing our engagement session?”

for me, the sooner the better!! you never know with weather or even real life stuff like getting sick, or cars breaking down, ect. soooo, i say the second you book, lets talk engagement session and make sure we pick a date roughly one-three months after you book your wedding.

If you plan on sending your engagement photos out with your save the dates, aim to get your engagement photos around the 6-8 month mark before your wedding to give yourself plenty of time to get your save the dates out to your guests!!

more about engagement photos can be found in my engagement photo guide here.


“will i be able to decide on which photos are edited/be able to access the raw photos/videos?”

UNFORTUNATELY, no. i do not allow clients to access the raw files from their wedding day, hold possession of them, or buy them from me. this is my way of keeping my work, my work. if i sold, or gave raw files to clients, they can essentially edit them themselves, and publish without giving me credit. or they edit the photos, and credit me, but it looks nothing like my work. this is simply copyright INFRINGEMENT and is illegal under my contracts with clients.

I do not allow clients to cull through their images/videos and pick their favorites for me to edit. I do not proof any images for clients. to put it simply, i want getting your wedding photos to be like christmas morning for you. i can also look at photos differently than a non-photographer, also. i can pick images based on lighting, angle, focus, etc. so you just get to sit back, relax, and wait for me to perfect your collection!!!
