Kaysha Weiner Photographer »

I regularly post my favorite moments from weddings, but rarely do I share what my couples actually take home, their albums! Holding one of these beauties in your hands adds a whole new level of appreciation to the memories they contain. All of my couples receive a USB drive full of their high resolution photos, but so often after the wedding life continues to move forward. You’ll buy a home, start a family and create your life together. In the process these precious photos stay hidden on that drive and are rarely printed. This makes me very sad, and is why I encourage everyone to make an album showcasing their pictures.

So with that in mind, I had to share a few album photos from this especially beautiful Smog Shoppe wedding.

Modern OC Wedding Photography Albums

These albums are custom designed, handmade, and built to last a lifetime. I thoroughly enjoy the designing process and work hard to really tell the story of your wedding throughout the pages.

These particular albums are only available to my couples, but there are many wonderful DIY options out there. I especially love Artifact Uprising for their modern style, killer customer service and affordable price tag.

Although you’ll always have your USB drive, don’t forget to fill your home with photos, get that album made, and really cherish these precious memories.

So much happens behind the camera during wedding days! Between setups, testing the light, and organizing people, there are lots of opportunities for silly moments throughout the day. This helps keep things fun, and I’m constantly laughing at these photos while editing each wedding. So you know what that means? It’s time for the next installment of behind the scenes photos!!


Invitations + a windy day = the need for an extra set of hands.


When testing the light, always look for other vendors to help! ;)

  • Rachelle - I love these posts, so fun to see you in action! :)

I have wanted to do a 4th of July wedding shoot for years! The combination of red, white and blue is so inspiring, and the possibility for a unique and elegant design is endless. Thankfully the lovelies at Pure Lavish Events ran with the idea creating the most stunning patriotic shoot! Dedicated to past and present branches of service, this shoot incorporated an amazing team of vendors who brought the vision to life.

Wedding Chicks featured the full shoot on their blog, but I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you here today. Wishing everyone a safe, fun, and amazing 4th of July!

  • Rachelle - Love this fun and vibrant theme! Beautiful and so patriotic!

My favorite part of photographing weddings is seeing how each couple decides to celebrate their union. From the most classic ceremonies to eclectic receptions, the sky really is the limit. So when Amee and Amit asked me to photograph their wedding, I was beyond excited to document my first Sikh ceremony. Being part of such a vibrant, fun, and traditional ceremony was wonderful a treat. I quickly feel in love with the colors, henna tattoos, and most of all Amee and Amit!

These two are clearly made for each other, and they just have a way about them. Amit’s energy is infectious, and you can’t help but smile while you’re with Amee. Their wedding day was full of lots of dancing, laughter, and I’m so thankful I got to be a small part of the festivities!

Whenever I have the opportunity to travel for work, I do my best to take advantage of my new surroundings. This means lots of exploring, eating, and fulling taking in the local flavor. Having only been to Seattle once, I cannot wait to return this week for a lovely wedding and a mini vacation with my hubby. If you’d like to keep up with our travels be sure to follow me on Instagram.

This is a friendly reminder that I’ll be traveling until July 1st. For all my clients, please note I will have limited access to email during this time, but I will do my best to get back to you asap!  :)


  • Rachelle - Enjoy and safe travels!!
