Our story begins in 2003 at an elementary school in the small town of Puyallup, Washington, which is located about 35 miles south of Seattle and is nestled against the breathtaking backdrop of Mt. Rainier and the Cascade Mountains.
Kayla was a third grader and Truth was in fourth grade that year (Which, as fate would have it, his teacher happened to be Kayla’s mom!). Kayla instantly had a BIG-time crush on Truth and dreamed, of course, of their future wedding and living happily-ever-after with him. However, she realized it was just a childhood dream and that he would probably never like her back.
Fast forward to 2013 when Kayla and Truth crossed paths yet again. This time, though, the stars aligned. They were much older and much wiser (well, Truth at least was because Kayla had always had a schoolgirl crush on him!) and they both fell head over heels in love with each other. They got married two years later in a winter wonderland wedding in December of 2015 and welcomed their first son, Liam, in January of 2018. Dreams really do come true! However, their story doesn’t end here. It’s just getting started…
Kayla and Truth’s story continues with their passion and love for photography and capturing beautiful moments with their camera and videos. To understand this couple better as creative artists, you need to know where they have been and where they are going on this journey.
Kayla’s heart belonged to photography for as long as she can remember, but never imagined it could become a career, supporting herself and her future family. So, upon graduating from high school, Kayla went off to college where she had decided to pursue a teaching degree and left her photography dream on the back burner. After a year and a half of college and after much thought, prayer, and conversations with Truth and her family, she realized teaching was not her calling. She decided to take a leap of faith and she quit college to follow her photography dreams. Kayla didn’t sit still for long figuring out what to do next…She invested every dime she had into purchasing the best camera equipment soon after she married Truth and they moved to Northern California. Her love for meeting new people, exploring new places, and capturing true love quickly overcame and fulfilled her as they settled into their new community and her photography business began to grow.
Since taking that leap of faith in 2016, and trusting God, Kayla has booked and worked with over 30+ brides and grooms across the United States and the world! Kayla was blessed to have had the opportunity to even capture love as far away as Iceland!
Soon after turning her part-time hobby into a full-time business, Kayla ventured into videography. She knew adding video services for her clients would help to capture more genuine and raw moments that cannot be recreated or staged. Video allows us to dive right back into the moments we cherish most. This is where Truth’s story in the business begins. Truth has always been a creative, passionate, and hardworking individual from day one. Kayla knew he would be the perfect member to add to her ever-growing team. Truth cares about capturing those loving moments of a first look, all the way to the quiet scenes after a beautiful ceremony. Truth is the visionary and somehow manages to weave together an entire day and deliver you a story you will want to watch over and over again.
We are blessed to do what we love for a living and to be on this journey. We hope you choose us to be a part of your own journey and to help you share your story through our photographs and videos.
