The Story
of Your Life

WHEN YOU LOOK AT YOUR PHOTOS,
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SEE?

IF SO, YOU’LL NEED YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER TO DO MORE THAN TAKE PRETTY PICTURES 

You’ll need someone who provides advice and direction. Someone who puts you at ease and helps you feel confident. Someone who has the experience to know when to talk... 

And, more importantly, when to listen.

over 500 stories... and counting

Epic shots and candid moments are what I also wanted from my wedding day. And thankfully, that's exactly what I received.

In fact, there's a photo sitting on my desk right now of my dad and me - moments before my own ceremony. Just looking at it transports me back and makes me teary...

Those are the type of photos I want to give to you. 

Photos that tell the full story of your love and your life.

I'M KIM

Hi there!

I've been told that my photos take you back to more than a moment. They take you back to a feeling: the warmth of the sun, the smell of the water, and the tickle of the breeze.

They remind you how good the day felt.

To give you that requires positive energy and an artistic eye. The right amount of direction and advice. And all the secret spots and island insights that only someone who grew up here could share.

I couldn't imagine using anyone else!"

"There is so much emotion that comes through her photos that you can relive those moments over and over. We used La Vie for our wedding in 2015 and then again in 2020 for family photos. It felt like a reunion, and to experience Kim’s enthusiasm and professionalism again was wonderful.

Ultimately, my goal is to take away some of the stress. Make you feel lighter. And help you feel more positive and confident. So, let's get started.

I’m always up for sharing local advice - especially when it leads to more beautiful images. From locations that capture the essence of the island to secret spots for sunset photographs, I know them all.

Your memories, and the photos of them, are the one thing that will last from this day. So, it's understandable that you want them captured beautifully.

But right now you might be a little stressed trying to research the island, find the right vendors, and discover all the picture-perfect spots.

Well, you're in luck. Because I have both an experienced eye and a local perspective.

and feel like life long friends while doing it!"

"Kim's ability to pick out the little details that make up a wedding is astonishing. Kim and Adam both really capture the emotion and personality in every photo. They have the unique ability to capture photos discreetly, but also be right in the action

My favorite days are when things go a little off course... When there's an element of  "unknown" fun... Like getting caught in a quick, springtime shower. Or stopping for a seaside photo and witnessing a pod of orcas pass by.

WHEN YOU CAN LET GO OF THE PLANS, TAKE A DEEP BREATH, AND JUST ENJOY THE MOMENT...THAT'S LIVING!

C'EST LA VIE... THAT'S LIFE!
